Official - Germans no longer like penalty shoot-outs

29 posts in this topic

Don't tell me, the players complained of being tired.

Football is tribal and gladitorial from a spectators point of view. Keep playing until someone scores, if only one man remains standing at least he should score and win the game.

Or, employ Joey Barton to ensure only one man remains standing in normal time. Simples innit.

The other suggestion was that once they went in to golden extra time (the time after normal extra time) each side had to take a player off every five minutes . As the numbers get fewer the sapce gets bigger and first to score cops the cup .

Take off the goalies for final golden goal period?

What a great idea, so simple too!

Following Bayern's loss at the Champion's League finals on penalties, the (German-Swiss) head of FIFA, Sepp Blatter, has asked Bayern Munich honorary president Franz Beckenbauer "to come up with an alternative to the "tragedy" of penalty shoot-outs."

You couldn't have written the script, could you?

Try playing the game to win from the off you twats, as opposed to playing it safe and killing the game in the knowledge that you practice penalties more than any other set peice...:doh:

I demand the job as the German manager.

Or try that one where you hold a broomhandle upright, rest your forehead on the top of the broomhandle, circle around five times very quickly then run off and try and kick the ball towards the goal.

should bring back the golden goal

I thought the Silver Goal was better were they carried on to the end of the period, the golden goal was a bit too much sudden death and a bit of an anti-climax IMO.

Penalties only prove one aspect of the game - nerve!

"Next goal the winner"

Played it almost every night, as a youngster. Why not go back to it (golden goal) until the poor, tired, badly done to, prima donna's are fucked and they are not allowed off the pitch, until someone scores?

Some of the lazy bastards would probaly try an OG.
