solemn_tom

wow okay thanks


domin8668

Tavares with 300iq mind games of giving away a pen to be missed lmfao


SlowMobius7

And downing the entire United team morale in the process. You can't make this shit up


domin8668

At this rate I'm going to need a new heart before I turn 25 💀 Both this the last one against Chelsea have been absolutely nerve-wrecking


[deleted]

As soon as penalty was given, I turned off my stream only to check score now, and see this...


domin8668

What the fuck I was expecting Xhaka to get sent off, not score


RealHungoverFC

🤔


dr_analyst

They are really psychologically a mess.


wolington

Especially after Ragnick said the whole team needs an overhaul. I don't see the players fighting for him for the rest of the season. Fuck these players.


HowHeStandOn10Perc

What the fuck was that


MarcusBrutus2000

The cherry on top, Ramsdale's celebration

yard04

Was watching the replay and that immediately came to my mind.


AdJealous4926

Pure shithousery


Heisenbugg

Thats the best part lol


fourscoreandhuit

Hilarious all round. The punch. The slow run up. The miss. Ramsdale running up to him to celebrate. Great stuff.


leedler

Prime United, that’s what


hornpub1818

If Ten Hag wasn't already bald this job would make him lose all his hair in a month.


thehunter_1999

He can lose hair at different places


Transit-Strike

Can't wait for his manscaped ads


thanlong90

Speaking of, that stuff any good?


Transit-Strike

I've been thinking about buying one but I don't know. I am scared that the product sucks and they just use influencers and YouTubers ad their business model instead of making a good product. If anyone has an honest review, feel free to tag me


kablooey08

Same, I'm sick of nipping my balls with my beard trimmer and then my face smelling like balls


VeryBadflower

/u/Transit-Strike /u/thanlong90 It's half decent. not the miracle product its made out to be, but works well better than sticking a normal beard trimmer down there. If you're gonna get one, make sure to use one of those Podcast discount codes cause its pricey.


No_Doubt_About_That

Need to make /r/properunitedthat.


Ainsyyy

Ronaldo is in Brunos head

21 men vs Ronaldo


Brawlers9901

20, Sancho has been good honestly


IllusionaIl

19, De Gea has been good as well.


T-Rigs1

18, bottles of beer on the wall


alien_degenerate

Why didn't they let Ronaldo take it? Its seems they deliberately trying to fuck up


dr_analyst

Probably because Bruno has been in bad form and the goal was to help him a bit. But it backfired.


youngchul

That''s something you do when you're up 3-0, not when you're playing an important match down 1-2. What the fuck is wrong with United, they're literally self sabotaging.


dr_analyst

I mean, before Ronaldo arrived, Bruno was the penalty taker and barely missed any. That was one of the reasons they were second even. Just that their mentality at the moment is so shit that he also starts missing. I might be mistaken, but I think Ronaldo also missed a penalty this season as well.


youngchul

He has been shocking for months now, I was 100% sure he'd miss when he stepped up. Ronaldo has been on point the entire match. Completely brain dead decision.


allyt61

Ronaldo missed his last pen for United. When he first re-joined Bruno kept pen duty until he missed, so they're probably switching like that


a34fsdb

Him not taking the pen is actually madness


Dak_Tiny_PP

Matic's got an assist and won a penalty


GenggamBara

that run up should be banned


greppese

The Zaza+Jorginho special


lemmonquaaludes

If I had to take a penalty by tap dancing barefoot over hot coals, I’d have a more composed approach than this


_SSJeffo_

Tavares you lucky lucky man


MagicNipple

DeepFriedReus

Ramsdale celebrating a great save


Pepe_Gui

Celebrating like he won the champions league


YMangoPie

We're gonna manifest our way in. No attack and defence, just celebrations.


sushie182

You're going to get one of either Bayern or Barca in your group stages and the other in your Ro16. It's inevitable.

[удалено]


sushie182

If your club has shown me anything, they love to give you guys abit of hope before the pain.


Aszneeee

so, gonna beat Barca in first round just to lose to Molde next game?


iGeography

Molde can't qualify for the 2022/23 Champions League as Bodø/Glimt won in December. But I agree with your sentiment


Anticitizen-Zero

Hey don’t trigger our PTSD


Raptoot83

Looked like he was celebrating at Bruno. I get the sense goalkeepers aren't fond of those stupid little dancey un ups.


Circle_Breaker

Fake it till you make it


Heblas

Him getting a quick celebration in while the ball is in play after the save against Dalot is peak Ramsdale.


OJ34

Bru-NO


MrKnIVXX

FreefallMark

Watching people miss stutter penalties is always some lovely instant karma for me.


thezaland

Been chasing the high I got from watching that Zaza penalty miss years ago.


kabuto23

Zaza is the purest form of ecstasy


Roseradeismylady

Don't forget his teammate Pelle telling Neuer he's going to chip him and then shooting way wide [in the same exact shootout](https://youtu.be/Tuq-Abpta_A)


SowwieWhopper

What a weird edit


Roseradeismylady

Thats when thug life memes were at their peak


TheRalphExpress

me and a few mates took the train into London that night, got out and ran into a pub just as he was doing his run up


Muhruhwuh

Could probably have got the train back by the time he finished his run up


CosmicShrek14

I HATE stutter penalties. The immense rage I felt when Rashford missed that penalty in the euros was unprecedented. Just run up and thunder-cunt the thing


phoenix-down

Literally. You're 1-1 with the keeper. Just pick your spot and shoot. All the mindgames, stutter business has really become over the top lately.


simomii

It's the cleanest best pleasure


[deleted]

[удалено]


iiEviNii

I absolutely despise the stutter penalty bollocks. Wish there was a rule implemented where your run up has to be consistent.


L-Freeze

if there is a rule against pretty much any other form of “deceiving” during penalties I don’t get why stuttering is still allowed. Feels like a legal loophole that you can do it with how much shit you can’t do during a penalty


Owster4

I can't stop laughing at it. The kick itself looks off to me too.


RauloGonzalez

because when he stopped after the stutter he stopped too long and broke his own momentum. His run up looked wonky this time.


LukaVuk545

This was screaming Ronaldo hat trick-United comeback, and what they do, they let Bruno take it


KILLER_IF

Exactly what I was thinking, like come on.


Spug_Teedman

Yeah dude I spit my coffee out on my couch I couldn’t believe it. Hat trick previously, gets the goal this game, and not trying to sound insensitive but the passing of his son which I see as a motivation for him (CR seems crazy like Michael Jordan to me and would fuel off this goals ultimately give him his biggest high) and watching Bruno get the ball I lost it, then laughed pretty hard


MuchSmith

Looked nervous beforehand


MisterAppelmoesmaker

Felt Ronaldo's eyes prying in his back


courtesyflusher

Probably thinking about Ronaldo’s hard year in 2021, despite the goals he scored in all the competitions


undercover-_-

WHY NOT RONALDO


Anticitizen-Zero

100 goals is enough apparently

DansSpamJavelin

I got a text from my neighbour because their kid heard me yell "AHHH YOU WANKER!" thru the wall


illadelphia16

Sounds like a wanker


rolla_johnson

Why no Ronaldo?


Youngest_boss

Ronaldo actually picked the ball up, was surprised to see Bruno on the Pk spot


kameecoding

they switch when one misses, Bruno missed against villa, then ronaldo took em, then ronaldo missed boro now bruno took it.


ninja_tay

That just puts even more pressure on them both right? Just pick one and let them take them all until they have 2 shit ones in a row or something


grchelp2018

What a stupid rule especially when you have Ronaldo. I'd only take it from him if he misses three in a row.


miamibuckeye

Bruno has been shit all year and low on confidence. Could see that miss coming from miles away


david13guet

I was so relieved when I saw Bruno was going to take it and not Cristiano. I knew the chances of a miss were much higher. Cristiano Ronaldo is not missing a penalty against Arsenal FC lol


andr1y7

Did we have another penalty since Ronaldo's miss vs Boro? Because that's probably the reason.


_Zer0Two

So are united going to change pen takers every time someone misses?


vadapaav

Watch da gea miss penalty soon


LochBodminMothFoot

We watched him miss one last season.


dotConehead

bruno play shit for the past 10 games now. his confidence is all time low. its literally the worse time to take a penalty especially with his style where confidence is the key.


Ifk1995

I swear to god everytime someone goes to take a pen outside of the obvious choice (here Ronaldo) they miss. Saw it coming a mile away.


d1strbd

The last time I saw Fernandes take a pen instead of CR7 was against villa and he smacked it over the bar. Thought he wouldn't fuck this one up but here we are


Bolstex

I really don’t get the thought process behind not letting one of the best penalty takers of all time take penalties.


Brawlers9901

How else is Bruno going to pad his stats


leedler

Well he’s certainly padded one stat, not sure if that’s the one he wanted though lmao


JamminPT

exactly


CalmMaunga

How on earth do you not put Ronaldo on the spot.


[deleted]

[удалено]


creative_i_am_not

Lol that's such a stupid strategy, fucks mentally with the takers


SadNYSportsFan-11209

That’s just stupid af. Ronaldo’s been on fire lately


ChungusDaFungus

what is the point of a Penandes if he cant score penalties


Bindlestiff34

He’s an expert referee harasser.


Youngest_boss

Complaining at the ref and getting booked


Ricky_Berwick

A Penandes grants you 1 free ankle breaking tackle without a red per game.


LeStiqsue

He can twat opposition players without getting booked. Multiple weeks in a row.


LilDiamondtoxic

Man pulled a Rashford


Zakke_

Saka did not


duk-phat

Too soon 😭


Super_Sandro23

Htf is Ronaldo not taking a high pressure penalty like that??


Alloezero

Yea fuck the "rules" of the team. You can't design a player better suited for this.


ProcessMe

Naff pen. Ramsdale's celebration has me wheezing though. Mighta done an adebayor if he'd gone the right way


ssudhars2001

That celebration will always be a mental image for me


Brawlers9901

Holy fucking shit put Ronaldo on pens 0/2 so far this season


fatguyonsteroids

Both off target too.


mojambowhatisthescen

Thank god! But Tavares’ IQ can’t be more than 63 🤦🏽‍♂️


pork_chop_expressss

Every game. It's shocking.


WalterHenderson

Can't say that Benfica/Portuguese fans didn't warn you, when he first started playing very well and everyone was praising him.


NobodyRules

Most Benfica fans were downvoted because he looked like the second coming of Christ, but we've watched him for years. A good stsrt won't fool us. There's also the fact that all big 3 fans agreed he was fucking awful, when that happens you know something is up.


SphinxIIIII

It happened for us too, started very well in pre season and as time went by his IQ just got lower and lower. What a shit player and horrible teammate.


shikavelli

I’ve never seen a player consistently make the wrong decision every single time


Lathow

Benfica fans were right?


[deleted]

They were.


MitroVanWilder

No shit


average_user21

Yes.


NobodyRules

To think that we were downvoted because he looked like a football player initially, fun 3 weeks. Guess what? A dumb and bad player won't suddenly become good in a few months, shocking really that the fans that watched him play for years pretty much agreed he was awful.


imadreamgirl

athleticism can cover for a lot of deficiencies, but yeah he was certainly priced that low for a couple of obvious reasons lol


Caruso08

I think he still shows moments on the counter where he looks quite sharp, he looks more like a winger than a fullback. His defending is shocking, down to basic fundamentals my 10-year-old nephew knows better.


Stannis-I-Baratheon

Get holding in I’m shitting myself


_longtimelistener

Also, can be please stop shooting every time he's near United box?


PakiIronman

Man straight up did a nazi salute


Def1ance

Incredible, what has happened to him man.. his confidence is at an all time low. He would never miss.


Gigas69

He has cost United 4 points by missing 2 penalties this season . wdym he would never miss


Def1ance

Yup this season, not the two past seasons it was like a guaranteed goal for him


NotHere2Insult

Ronaldo should 100% be taking penalties. What the fuck is wrong with Manchester United. Disgrace.


Spitzee

Just beautiful, no one i would rather watch miss a pen against my team


Kunalkotkar

Still baffles my mind how you got Ronaldo in your team and not give him the penalty... And I'm a Barca fan.


kameecoding

ok then...


analbeard

Unless Ronaldo didn't want to take it, which I highly doubt because the man is so good at dealing with mental pressure, letting Fernandes take it ahead of him is a crime. This is a huge 3 points and Fernandes is really weak mentally, especially in recent times when he's played shite. Ronaldo all day long regardless of 'record'.


Ghostface-22

It’s 2-1 put Ronaldo on it


Yenxiro

Why didn’t ronaldo take?


kameecoding

they switch after they miss. ronaldo missed against 'boro


Psychomantis200

Maybe he's not in the best of the moods considering the fact that a pen has much more mental pressure? Or Bruno just wanted to take it this time.


dotConehead

bruno mentality is much worse tho. he hasnt has a single good game since forever now.


Tr0nCatKTA

I dont think Ronaldo of all players is worried about mental pressure


Accomplished-Good664

Serves him right for the tosser run up style.


stratrookie

I feel sorry for ronaldo

Lmao what is that run up.. and then missing like that.

SprayAndPay69

Penalty that sealed our chance for top 4… Ronaldo is in team for reason


MrKnIVXX

Ramsdale’s reaction is everything


Godfather0O

Why not ronaldo tf


minivillain

Lol


sanne2

I was hoping that he would miss when they didnt give the pen to Ronaldo, United is a fucking mess


Chapea12

Ronaldo never giving up a pen again


fahad_k91

You give it to ronaldo easy and simple


dbrasco_

This is armchair manager at its finest but I don’t understand why Bruno takes penalties when Ronaldo is out there. If Portugal are playing the World Cup Ronaldo is taking it. Why is it different at club? Edit: I saw Ragnick’s answer and now I’m a sad for both of them.


Kneepi

Premier Leagues most overrated player


Mmicko8

Should 've let Ronaldo take it


shameless_autotune

Hahahahahahahaha what a fucking twat!!! Hahahaah


LeBronzeVlac

Second time taking a pen from Ronaldo, what the fuck is Bruno smoking?


muntxx

Why the fuck is Bruno taking penalties? You literally have a Ronaldo in the team who has been memed cause he scores so many penalties


Unluckysod

What a knob. Ramsdales reaction is the best thing I've ever seen


emre23

Man loves a good shithousing


Santa_Klaus_101

When it's a big-moment penalty and you have Ronaldo in your team...


The-Egyptian_king

Why didnt Ronaldo take it?


ItsJigsore

poor rat boy


Ok_Imagination_3627

Known for his penalty taking on his Wikipedia page loooool


CanLlorenteCarForMe

WHY NOT RONALDO

CanLlorenteCarForMe

I know a thing or two because I have seen a thing or two.


Hot-Protection4548

Everyone in football knows if Ronaldo is in your team, he should be taking penalties


ZaDoruphin

You fucking idiot Ronaldo is going to kill him in the dressing room


5_percent_discocunt

Absolutely beautiful to see someone do the bunny hop and completely miss the target. Couldn’t be happier, what a prick.


jorgelongo2

Ramsdale celebrating like crazy lol
