I swear I remember Hoolahan taking a penalty for us in a cup game last season or the one before, keeper saves it but luckily Wes scored the rebound! Please never let him near the penalty spot again unless we need him for a penalty shootout or something!

I imagine Wolfie will take the pens with Snoddy second in line.

I think you may be thinking of the Leicester cup game 2 yrs ago when he scored from a rebound. He did score a pen against Scunthorpe in League cup last year. I think he only has about a 60% success rate so best to let RVW do the job.

From a psychological point-of-view it''s a really good idea to encourage your main striker to hit the net as frequently as possible. It helps to reinforce the neural pathways making the connection with striking the ball AND hitting the net. The more you do it, the deeper it drives into the subconscious...which means the player is more able to do whatever is necessary to convert each opportunity without really thinking about it. He may not always score, but he''s much more likely to!

Valid point. Also, strikers are judged on basis of goals scored. Boosting his statistics will increase his value.
