    Surely all teams do than regularly anyway?
    Do they?? I remember at the last world cup...i read an article about how Germany did practice penalty taking regularly....but they were the only major footballing nation to do so...maybe things have changed since then

    yeah same here


    it's been a long time since we've had a player so entertaining to watch, he is simply awesome.

    Scholes will be no great loss, we just play hargreaves and push Lampard further forward

    beckham and owen are crap at pens

    rooney is too young to have that sort of pressure, let scholes have a go
    Svholes, the player who hasn't scored for england for 2 years? I don't agree. You can't have anyone who could be lower on confidence than him.

    At the age of 18, a player is quite often fearless, and doen't care who the opposition is. He has the belief. It was exactly the same with Owen.

    have you heard the news that Beckham has confirmed he will continue to take england's penalties! Noooooooooooooooooooo

    Theres no hope, why can't he see that he is rubish at taking them, we don't want him to miss one from now on and then decide not to take them again let someone else take them please!

    he said that he will carry on taking them so i guess it's his decision. If he misses another he will have to let someone else take them, he can't keep missing them.

    So Becks misses one penalty and all of a sudden he is rubbish at penalties. At the end of the day there is no one else in the squad that I would trust as much as Becks to take a penalty. If we are at all likely to perform well at euro 2004 than it will probably be due in no small part to Becks. I certainly wouldn't be surprised if we got to the final and it came down to penalties with Beckham putting away the winner. :mad:

    yes i do watch England play. why? is there something that i'm missing? cos from what i remember beckham has always delivered. okay he didn't score the penalties against france and turkey, but forgetting the matter of scoring goals he always gives a good performance.
