What's happened here?

Why is Barkley taking it when Jorginho is the penalty taker and a specialist?

Massive conversations beforehand with Willian and Jorginho seemingly telling Barkley they wanted it. Is Lampard weak not having this decided before the game?

Please! That kind of criticism is only meant for Ole.

Guarantee it won't get even quarter the amount of attention as Pogba/Rashford/Wolves

Barkley was taking their penalties throughout pre-season and is now their main taker.

Don't understand this sort of behaviour. There should never be any discussions about the penalty taker during the game.

Not a dickie bird will be said. It's lamps and good ol chelsea.

I'm expecting Chris Sutton to launch a scathing attack on Barkley demanding for his head on a stick.

Probably just shock throughout the group that Cnut Cakir gave a penalty to a English team.

Eagerly awaiting the media assault on Lampard in which they question whether he has control over this group of players.

Didnt see the pen, but Ross is normally a very good penalty taker. Oretty sure he took quite a few during pre season.

Anyone can miss a pen and it so happened that Ross did tonight. Could have been Jorginho.

Just watching it again. It's a complete farce. Much worse than anything that happened at United against Wolves.

Interesting!

He's English mate, how good can he be? For the record he scraped the outside of the crossbar.

Oretty :lol:

Can’t believe these acts of betrayal at games these days. Football is headed down a dark road.

I don’t have a problem with anybody missing a penalty. They’re so difficult and goalkeepers these days are so agile. They do all their homework.
