    New style penalty taking, is it fair?

    Having seen Bruno Fernandes' technique on MOTD last night, I think what he does is totally wrong and should be banned.

    It's one thing having a goalkeeper stay on their line before the ball is kicked for a penalty but, allowing a player to start his run then jump up before landing and then take his penalty is nothing short of feigning and an indirect free kick should have been awarded and a yellow card issued.

    There's also a Crystal Palace player? who runs up then stops dead before kicking the ball, again it is not all in one fluid movement and should also be banned.

    Thoughts anyone?

    I can't see any problem with it apart from it makes him look a tit.

    Related to the incident yesterday the rules in MLS must be different because yesterday a GK was penalised for coming off his line to save a penalty in the sudden death part of a shoot out, given a yellow card which was his 2nd of the game so he was sent off. Centre half went in goal in his place for the retake, as no subs allowed after the game had 'ended', saved the penalty and his team scored the next one to win. Karma

    Agree,it draws the goalkeeper off his line so if he saves it they take it again.

    Definitely makes them look a tit

    I think its wrong, keeper concentrating and must have one foot on line for then the player tricks him to move before ball is actually kicked resulting to re-take if they miss.
    Think its a new form of cheating

    But as it stands, legal (maybe not the Palace example)

    Feinting in the run-up to take a penalty kick to confuse opponents is permitted as part of football. However, feinting to kick the ball once the player has completed his run-up is considered an infringement of Law 14 and an act of unsporting behaviour for which the player must be cautioned.

    Basically the rules are shyte, interpretation of the rules is shyte, refs are shyte, to sum up football at the highest levels is shyte.

    So does that mean that if the penalty is scored then it stands and the player is just yellow carded. The rule only mentions the outcome being a caution.
    If so that's not much of a deterrent particularly if it's in injury time to steal all of the points

    Ive seen the footage of this. If holllywood had written it Id say it was far fetched.

    There was no difference from the disallowed save and the Nani one. Both fine saves.

    It's an infringement therefore a foul.

    It would be retaken (? Brin you were a Ref).
    However should be an indirect free kick to the defending team imo

    Wasnt that rule out well before the new keeper rule? Maybe a tweak is needed

    Itll get to point when football will come under comedy instead of sport
