    Practicing penalties? What a waste these guys all have the skills to take decent shots from 12 yards out, what makes it challenging is keeping your nerves in check when moving towards the ball to take your kick, this is something you cant replicate in practice, Messi Ronaldo Maradona Pele have all missed PKS do you not think they practiced penalties?

    The PK thing is annoying but trying to understand it will only give you brain damage.

    Gonzalez isn’t getting enough love. He was superb Wednesday on both ends. He knows how and when to move forward, it really led to several great chances.

    Scored 1. Okay sure. But lazy? I'm not buying it.

    vs LAFC - assisted on Endoh's goal
    vs Colorado - earned the penalty, Poz took it
    vs NYCFC - earned the penalty Poz scored, and was involved in the second penalty
    vs NE and Cincinnati - didn't play either game
    vs Montreal (MLS) - assisted Morrow on the come back game winner
    vs Columbus - assisted Osorio, and scored the equalizer

    So no he hasn't scored much lately, but I'd hardly call him lazy - he's been involved in every game he's played lately with an assist/earned penalty (not to mention everything else he contributes with his hold up play, drawing defenders, etc).

    some people were asking about some info on penalty kicks and this was something i saw just before the cup game.
    Bono has saved 3 pks out of 18 attempts. Westberg has now tied him with 3 saves in only 9 attempts.

    I forget where I saw it but after those stats came out someone pointed out that Bono's three "saves" were actually misses, and Westberg's three "saves" were two misses and one save.

    Osso was cussing out some fans in the side line box seats at the end of the match. Does anyone know what that was about?

    He keep touhing his heart and pointing at himself. He was claarly apologising.

    He also was the one in around the 70th minute asking for the south to bring it.

    it shows, Bono barely guesses the right direction.

    Bono went to his left every time. Makes it easy for the shooter.

    It's really quite intriguing. I've been noticing this trend with him for a while. He rarely guesses the right way. He's not reading opponents well.

    I am convinced we need a better keeper coach.

    I think that if you did some statistical analysis...you’d show that he waits till the shot is taken..then dives in the opposite direction. Likely not on purpose...some sort of mental thing. He never gets close. Ever.

    TFC are as bad as England at taking penalties. It is that bad.

    England practiced penalties - you should look up what Southgate said afterwards. It was quite interesting and contrary to the generally accepted view that you cannot practice because you cannot create the same situation ie nerves. They did things like blast crowd noise really loudly then turn it off immediately before the penalty etc to create deathly silence. SouthGate says it much better than I can. It’s worth a read.
