Thread: Big club mentality

    Big club mentality

    Thank goodness for our big club mentality which saw us win the penalty shoot-out, it's our attitude as a club which saw us through. We obviously felt we deserved to be in the third qualifying round of the Europa League. I'm sure everyone will be lining up to applaud our success tonight.

    I see what you did there.

    Our penalty shootout record, and indeed penalty record in general, remains poor overall and I stand by what I said on here in February, that we lack bottle when it matters most and that's not just confined to penalties. I am absolutely convinced that we would not win a penalty shootout in a domestic cup match against a Hearts or Aberdeen etc Winning last night saved us from one of our most embarrassing results in history and we've got Trevor Carson to thank for that. When your goalkeeper saves three in a shootout you always have a more than 50/50 chance of winning and he prevented what had been a pretty dismal night from being a disastrous one.

    Heh heh.

    No argument we saved a debacle for sure but we'd all rather have that than a good performance and 'unlucky' exit.

    Our shoot-out record is one-off being exactly 50-50 (and is actually bang level if you ignore the gimmick that is the LC group stage), I still don't know what scale you're using to classify that as poor rather than basically average...how many wins to losses would we need for a satisfactory record?
