VIDEO: 5 clips you need to see from the football weekend

by Sean Goff | August 20, 2012

It’s the opening day of the new season. Expectations are high. You’re the club’s striker and want to get off to a good start. Keep the manager happy. Keep the fans happy. Add to the win bonus. So here’s what NOT to do when you take a penalty.

[Warning: Adjust volume control downwards]

1. Shane Long, WBA v Liverpool

He wasn’t fit enough for Giovanni Trapattoni, but he caused Liverpool plenty of problems. Not with this penalty, mind. Howler, boy.

2. David Silva, Man City v Southampton

Expectations are high so here’s the chance to settle the nerves David. City fan’s reaction in background sums it up.

3. Steven Taylor uses his head, Newcastle v Spurs

No point in hoofing it to row Z. Give it to the keeper, son.

4. Demba Ba peach in the same game

Back to goal. Five defenders and the keeper to beat from a tight angle. Get in!

5. Whatever Swansea can do, Barca can do 5-1 v Real Socieadad

Where the Swans lead, Barca follow. Who’s your money on to do it again though?
