    You expect even the worst goalkeepers to be quality shot-stoppers, it's their bread and butter. If he can't stop shots, he can't get in the team.

He simply stuck it into the opposite corner. It's all about technique on both sides of the ball. You balls that up, and you're fooked. It's no lottery.
    If the taker goes for the top corner, he will score no matter who is in goal. If he goes down the middle, he will score most times as the keeper has already decided to go one way. Most keepers move at least a fraction before the kick is taken. It's instinct rather than fault. The taker decides the direction where the ball goes, the keeper has to try and respond to it. Often he can't, such is the nature of penalties.

    Bayern faced Monchengladbach in a shootout tonight. Monchengladbach missed two penalties, one a good attempt at a rugby penalty, and the other where the keeper guessed the right way and saved it. Bayern play Dortmund in the final.

    Google "guessing", and then google "anticipating" and when you're done, hve a look at googling "techniques". Then go back to bed.

    Cracking banner from the Schalke fans last night protesting at Athletic Bilbao charging 90euro a ticket for the away leg next week. You don't need to speak Spanish to get the gist of it.

    Why were the tickets that expensive and how are Athletic Bilbao getting away with it?

    Tickets are €90 but Athletic gives its Members (owners) a €60 discount on the ticket price.

    Would it bring you off the fence, if you think of it as Rovers' Members getting a 66% discount for Europa games at Tallaght and other Rovers' fans and away fans paying full price?

    What was this gobshite thinking?

    Bayern Munich defender Breno has been charged with arson after a month-long investigation revealed he had started the fire that burned down his rented Munich villa last year, the Munich prosecutor's office said on Wednesday.
    "Following the investigation... the Munich prosecutor's office assumes the accused intentionally set the house on fire shortly after 00:05 (local time) at night," it said in a statement.
    If found guilty he could face a jail sentence of between one and 15 years, the prosecutor's office said, adding Breno had to pay one million euros in damages for the house and 5,000 euros for a damaged garage of a neighbouring building.
    The 22-year-old Brazilian, who has hardly featured for Bayern this season due to a string of injuries, spent 12 days in police detention at the start of the season and is out on bail.
    The talented Breno, who joined Bayern as an 18-year-old and had high hopes of becoming their defensive anchor, has so far failed to earn a starting spot.
    He was remanded in custody on September 24 after he being suspected of playing a role in a fire that destroyed his Munich villa while recovering from injury. His family was out of the house at the time.
    "The accused who had consumed alcohol at the time used several lighters and possibly some fire accelerant and lit objects around the house," the Munich prosecutor's office said.
    The news comes just hours before second-placed Bayern Munich play leaders Borussia Dortmund away in a match that could go a long way to deciding the Bundesliga champions.
    Bayern are also in the running for the German Cup and the Champions League.
    I wanted to ask you Floyd if you don't mind. In my last fight before I knocked out George Groves at Wembley Stadium in front of 80,000 fans, I worked a lot on power. So I did a lot of swimming, and I chopped down a few trees myself, and then I held my feet and then I knocked him out. And I'm not known as a one punch knock-out man. Have you been doing that yourself a little bit? Working on power?

    it was a disgraceful price by Athletic - they gave members and season ticket holders the massive discount. Then supposedly fans buying on general sale would pay 90. but there'd be no way they would go on general sale after members and ST holders got their 2 discounted tickets for themselves and their mates.
    man utd and schalke both complained to uefa over the prices.
    i doubt there was one Athletic fan at the game who paid 90.
    the standard discount for members extra tickets is round about 10%

    VfB Stuttgart 4 – 1 Werder Bremen

    If Stuttgart had found their form earlier in the season, they might have been contenders for the title. Currently unbeaten in 9 games – and 36 goals in 14 games.

    I think all German fans have a major issue with ticket prices that aren't peanuts. Remember Dortmund fans protesting that their terrace fee went up to a whopping €20 a couple of years ago. The reality is England, France, and Spain ticket prices will cost you if you want to go. If you don't want to pay it, someone else will.

    The fans are in control in Germany – not big business. You fuck around with German fans at your peril.

    This is true. Also clubs in Germany operate a low cost policy as well for a certain allocation of tickets. For example you can still get into a Bayern Munchen for a Dortmund game for €15. Granted it's a small allocation of tickets but still it's a step that the premier just doesn't do. Ticket prices as a whole are fantastic in the bundesliga compared to the absolute disgrace of Cheslea charging in £45 for the cheapest seat in the shed end.

    Bayern Munich finished convincing winners in Cologne on the last day of the season in a match which was only a true contest for a half, a double strike just after the break effectively sealing the home side’s relegation from the top flight and ending their earlier stern resistance.

    The deafeningly loud 50,000 full house at RheinEnergieStadion saw Jupp Heynckes’ men run out in what could well be their Champions League final line-up, and after sorting out some early communication problems, Munich were good value for their half-time lead courtesy of Thomas Müller’s 34th-minute goal. The second half was only seven minutes old when Pedro Geromel put through his own goal, before Arjen Robben added an excellent third just 120 seconds later. Milivoje Novakovic pulled one back after 63 minutes, but the fight had gone out of the home side now and Müller added his side’s fourth with five minutes to go.

    The result means Bayern end the league season with 73 points from their 34 matches. The Bavarians’ eventful campaign now reaches its climax with the two huge games in the next two weeks, the DFB Cup showdown with Dortmund in Berlin next Saturday, and the Champions League final at the Allianz Arena a week after that on Saturday 19 May.

    Pauli miss out on the promotion playoffs by goal difference. Work to start on demolishing the remaining old stand.

    Despite beating promoted Eintracht Frankfurt Karlsruhe cant escape the relegation playoffs.
