What Do You Mean 'We Don't Practice Them'?

Newcastle STILL don't do penalties.

Newcastle, like England, are historically bad at penalties.

The club has only ever won one penalty shootout, and that came a decade ago against Watford.

That record didn't look like it was going to improve when Jonjo Shelvey placed the club's first kick into the arms of Eldin Jakupovic.

Of United's four penalty-takers, only Christian Atsu found the net. After the game, Rafa Benitez revealed his team hadn't practiced penalties ahead of the tie.


They are PROFESSIONAL footballers, for God's sake!

They train two hours a day. TWO HOURS!

Isn't it about time they took penalties seriously?
