Standard of their penalties was unbelievable


azifs

and then there was one


Void_Hound

The first was the same only that Trapp chose a side


ViciousNakedMoleRat

Glasner said they didn't train penalties because the players do it for fun anyways.


rScoobySkreep

I can speak from coaching that any group young men left with a round object and goal nearby will, by the laws of nature, begin taking penalties


meophj

Chad


BobaFettAss

Kamada and Roofe showed no nerves.


Gluroo

i was so worried about Kamada because my god he had an awful game but that pen was ice cold


BobaFettAss

Hauge was kinda awful for me. I was shacky by Lenz and Borré lol Borré just so massive.


bigfootbeast

Wait I thought his dribbling was fantastic during the game. I think the broadcast even mentioned he was stellar


Arntown

Seriously, there were like 4 penalties where the goalie dove the right way but no chance


ChickenMoSalah

I knew Frankfurt were going to win as soon as the commentators called McGregor 'the best penalty saver in the world.'


Toothache79

especially Kamada for Frankfurt, talk about millimetres, hits the inside of the post and goes in the net.


HamburgerMachineGun

same with Roofe, inside of the post when a miss would have lost the game on the spot


Blazing_Shade

Every single one of Frankfurt's penalties were completely unsaveable imo


Look_at_that_D0g

Ramsey missing was the most predictable outcome ever.


Funnydad44

Sad how true this is man every penalty was absolutely world class but his 😭😭


JeebaRock

First penalty was not world class, it was straight down the middle


Mortka

World class mentality


Captain_Cudi

Yeah I don't get praising penalties like that. If the keeper guesses wrong but could have got there easily, then that's partly luck on the taker's part. If the keeper guesses right and still can't get a glove to it, then that's a world class penalty.


NobodyRules

9 fantastic penalties and then there was that one... holy shit was it bad


Magnetic_Bull

Never bring on a player just for the penalties lol


Skytho1990

Unless it's Tim Krol I guess


niallw1997

A GK I agree with. Because I think that can toy with the opposition mind too as well as them being a saving specialist. Plus he’s got at least 5 chances usually to save one and justify it. But a player to actually take a pen… fuck that


Child_of_Peace

There's significantly less expectation for a GK compared to a kicker. I feel like this would contribute massively to a GK feeling significantly less pressure and stress compared to the kicker.


acwilan

Van Gaal disagrees


Physical-South-3564

comes on in the 118th minute misses a penalty and loses the final refuses to elaborate leaves


EraticConqueror

Knew he'd miss as soon as the commentator said he was signed for big moments


Tugays_Tabs

Knew he’d miss as soon as he played for Arsenal for a decade


CandidEnigma

How many times have we seen this go wrong in the past year?


xyzTr1LL

I couldn't remember. I have all those memories blocked off.


petalidas

His mistake was subbing only one player for the shootouts. Should've been two obviously smh


haskalldo

Roofe came on as well...


Fireclap

The only one you should sub on for penalties is the allmighty God Time Krul


HUGE_HOG

🦑 T E N T A K R U L 🦑


samgoody2303

This is more confirmation bias than anything- you remember the times it goes wrong as it’s more notable


bluehead18

Exactly, I remember in last years Europa final, united brought in basically all the subs just for penalties and they all scored.


Salmabutnotsalma

Everyone scored in that final though, well almost everyone


GlasgowGunner

Some say it’s still going on to this day.


badonkagonk

Agreed. Worked perfectly fine with Ross Barkley just last weekend. Obviously Chelsea didn’t win, but that’s what that sub was, and he had a fantastic PK. Definitely works out more than it doesn’t.

I'm an arsenal fan. My girlfriend's dad is a Rangers fan. I don't think I'll be allowed round their house anymore

Tell him that an Arsenal player just made himself immortal in Rangers' history.

Hahahaha time to propose, take his daughter and never seen her father ever again mate


CheruB36

make the child a juve fan


AMeanOldDuck

You'll need to find an appropriate penance.


emkael

Dude's an Arsenal fan, he's suffering enough.


fijozico

As soon as he came on you knew it’d happen


SilicoJack

Just Ramsay things.


TurboBeak

Agent Rambo sent in to demoralise the Scots before the World Cup playoff final. What a ledge.


Cookieez__

Celtic legend


TnaG67

Always knew I liked him


AleDelPiero10

Juve DNA showing through


ugallu

I don't know why, but I am 100% certain that every single person watching the game knew that Ramsey was going to miss that.


ILIKEGAMESOK

Absolutely. Didn't look like he wanted to be there


HUGE_HOG

I only switched on to watch the pens and my exact thought process as he stepped up was 'Ramsey plays for Rangers?' 'He's deffo gonna miss'


systemCF

This was also me, in that wording and order


Sesame_Tuna

Absolutely, wasterman


TurboPutin3000

Can you elaborate on that? Genuinely curios.


Y0RKC1TY

Barely played a game for rangers has he? Comes on near end, written in the stars


_LilDuck

Dude looked kinda shook


flexicution3

It’s just too convenient for him to be the one to miss


neededtowrite

But you also had that feeling for mbappe, it's not even on a bottler. You just get that "oh God he's going to fucking miss, he's going to miss"


rthunderbird1997

Yep, absolutely. I remember watching that penalty against Switzerland and saying to my friends that he was missing because he just didn't look sure and you could definitely tell.


Robhowardreg

I actually agree he didn't look comfortable. Coming on specifically for pens is a hard thing to do


Doncallan

He looked so uncontrollably nervous. Probably all in my head but I could feel the expectation of him being the big name signing coming in to make big things happen. A lot of pressure I'd say.


T_elic

Literally said to my dad "he just came on in the 118th minute, he's going to miss". My amateur psychologist theory is that playing only a couple minutes before a highly stressful thing like a penalty means your dopamine from working out hasn't been able to kick all of the cortisol out of your system, so you're maybe a lot more anxious then people who already played a fair part of the match


GozoGun

Except Roofe who came on at the same time and banged it. Ramsey just bottled it.


petrelli37

Man, I just love penalty shootouts when my team is not involved.


neededtowrite

You've had a really rough year.


toomanycookies123

lmao trapp won european silverware before psg did


183672467

If you wanna win any european trophy, just go to PSG and wait til they get rid of you

Unrelated but the guy is handsome af too lmao.

Thirst Trapp.


ValiantThor24

Perfect


Differ_cr

~~Average German GK~~ on a second thought nah, I was just thinking about Trapp and Karius


Sharaghe

Oli Kahn: Helloooo


schwaiger1

And Tim Wiese obviously


itsablackhole

his gf is a brazilian top model and she's still the reacher lmao


yimanya

Check out his fiancee. Izabel Goulart, Brazilian VS model.


Pupperinho

Trapp still is somehow the more attractive one.


bihari_baller

>Check out his fiancee. Izabel Goulart, Brazilian VS model. Wow, she's 37 too.


tom6195

Fuck off that’s his Gf?


Raigoku

He missed the pen right as the pundit was building him up lmao


TheLittleGinge

HE WAS BROUGHT IN FOR THE BIG MOMENTS!


tian447

To be fair, he gave the rest of Scottish football one hell of a moment.


unwildimpala

Lifetime Celtic legend too tbf.


Correct_Echidna9581

why is every final ending in penalties i swear the copa del rey, fa cup, and now this cup. wouldnt be surprised if the uecl goes to penalties as well.


Lpurchase

Afcon, Euros also


secretlyadog

World Cup Final penalties confirmed?


greencardrobber

Pls no

You want Feyenoord or Roma to win so badly?


Dronkne

I reckon they’ll just head home after a 90 min. draw


Dramatic-Magician825

Pens are fun to watch but only in moderation, this is a bit much


faggjuu

For a neutral its fine...but if your club is through that...fuck no!


Psyfuzz

I keep missing my bedtime


bvb_Shaggy

Jimbeardy

11th in the Bundesliga goes to the champions league. Massive


Blazing_Shade

i mean who needs to try in the league when you can just walk Europa including Barca, West Ham, Real Betis, and Rangers /s


acwilan

I think they didn't had a W in their last 10 league games or something


bvb_Shaggy

Thats also the exact moment when Frankfurt realized they could simply win the EL


FFIXwasthebestFF

People are joking but I think at some point they really were like “yeah, guess we are all in on EL now”. I love it.


acwilan

Piece o cake, innit?


RushPan93

So probably the lowest positioned team that's made it to the CL because of an EL win?


d0m1n4t0r

You just knew the player with the most ridiculous wages would have the absolute worst penalty of them all.


sanders801

Left Frankfurt for PSG to win league titles and left PSG to win Europa league - Trapp masterclass


xtoonator

That comment reminds about the crazy amount of keeper PSG had since the takeover. Gigio, Navas, Sirigu, Trapp, Areola, Rico, Buffon, Douchez …


keithohara

Trapp what a hero


Legendary888

That save in the last 2-3min of the 2nd ET was insane


fluter_

Absolute clutch to have kostic and borre as the last 2 shot takers


Phezh

To be fair, Borre misses like half of the ones he takes 😅


dizziycs

Kostic aswell, he was 2 out of 4 if im correct


kubick123

We lost a league because he missed some penalties. ... The odd thing is that when is a important match, he scores anyway. Can't even explain.


Dramatic-Magician825

Trapp has always been class, so happy to see him succeeding


GreatSpaniard

Borre Frankfurt legend


jesaub

Everywhere a fellow colombian scores, I see a GreatSpaniard comment. Saludos compa!

Beating Barcelona, West Ham, and Real Betis on the way. Very impressive, they didn’t take the easy route.

TheBrownMamba8

Insane run by them. Absolutely deserved.


violenceandvomit

We peaked in Barcelona and fizzled out in Sevilla. Perfect run and just carried it over the finish line.


iftair

Losing to the champions at the last second ain't a bad feat after all. Congrats to Eintracht Frankfurt and their fans.


Acrobatic_Bread_385

As a rangers fan i cant tell if this helps or hurts


_SSJeffo_

Borre got balls of steel


ninjapenguin12

Never ever sub in a player for pens 9/10 it backfires. But congrats to Frankfurt my god there fans are going on a bender


Aenjeprekemaluci

Unless its Tim Krul. Then it works


Tall-Mastodon-69

Well yeah, keepers are a different story. Edit : Of course you guys had to remind me of the Kepa disaster, THAT NEVER HAPPENED IN MY MIND OKAY???


BigFrigginHero

flair checks out


Adrian5156

Lol everyone always says this but nobody actually has provided any data to back this up. We literally only remember the ones who miss and then we propagate this narrative which could be complete nonsense. For instance Barkley and Tsimikas both smashed in their pens the other day.


Tvp9

They need just look at this game lol where Roofe, Lenz, and Hrustic all 3 smashed their penalties all 3 were subbed in extra time with penalties in mind.


wake-and-work

Seville was screwed either way


hellyesiguess

r/soccer in a nutshell: half the comments are about Ramsey


SebRev99

Historic achievement by Frankfurt, a very genuine football club that next season will play Champions League football alongside other 4 german clubs r/soccer: Let’s talk about the former PL player


sahneeis

best day of my life


AMeanOldDuck

Shocking pen to lose the game on


thefantom21

FRANKFURT IS MASSIVE Incredibly deserved, funny how they were written off even before the final, after knocking out Betis, Barca, and West Ham. Also, so happy for Trapp, incredible keeper. Good way to shove it up the twitter clowns who kept disrespecting him with that Barca game. HE WON A EUROPEAN CUP BEFORE PSG DID AHAHAHAHA. Game's not gone.


SWSIMTReverseFinn

It had to be Ramsey


AspirationalChoker

Absolutely gutted we didn’t win it at the end with the Kent chance etc and no corner call but Frankfurt deserve it their penalties were all brilliant and Ramsay sold us down the river with his attempt. Fair play Frankfurt at least we lost to another deserving club.


vandyk

Great words, penalties are pure luck, i feel for ya.


fom_alhaut

Honestly it could have gone both ways. Pens is a coin toss. You can be damn proud. What a final


AspirationalChoker

All good mate you guys must be bouncing off the walls right now what a tournament run. I’ll probably be bitter over this till the day I die haha but that’s football when you love teams like ours, all the best.


fom_alhaut

The city is going nuts. I just got home. Honestly you remember the bad times and you remember the good times. That‘s the life of a fan

feldheimerinc

Transfermarkt: current market value at 900k £. This is going to be corrected asap.


Paulpaps

Cos he plays in Scotland where the entire league prize money is less than what the bottom premiership team gets. Our game is ran by fucking furniture with faces that haven't any idea what they're doing. They announce 100 million pound TV deals, then you realise its over 5 years and think "are you even trying". Then it's sky that buy the rights and all they do is get basic information wrong constantly and move games around to fill gaps in their schedule. Our league really isn't that bad, it's just a comedy league at times because we like it that way. Gives it some character. I'm just hoping caley Thistle win these playoffs and get promoted back to the top flight, but it needs to be expanded anyways, we need it to make the league more interesting but they won't do it because they HAVE to have 4 old firm games a year and increasing the league would change that. Every other big league plays twice, but we have 3 or 4 times because apparently we only have 2 teams...most fans would take a 14-16 team league, but the people in charge have been there for years and do nothing and act like they're doing a good job.


Gary_Glitter_

stupid sexy Trapp


NobodyRules

Only top notch penalties so far... Ramsey: "hold my beer"


Kavor

At the hotel, still tearing up. This means the world to us. And btw: Huge respect to the Rangers. What a support, didn't take their silver medals off and overall an absolute class team and club. Hats off to you, I wish you all the best.

COMANDANTE BORRE !!!!!!


EmSoLow

Get fucked Hütter. Congratulations to Rangers for making it this far and of course congratulations to Frankfurt for winning the Europa league. A brilliant moment for German football


TheEmperorsWrath

All the hype for Aaron Ramsey just for him to miss the decisive penalty and knock Rangers out is real chef's kiss


nonviolentAssassin

Trapp with that final save and saved penalty MVP


Stephane_Bonnes

How do you do, fellow Frankfurters?


TheCatInTheHatThings

JAAAAAA!


xKnuTx

how did ramsey end up at rangers in the first place ? that seems like such a strange transfer


TheCatInTheHatThings

When you’re about five years into the FM save and the transfers start getting freaky!


CarefulConsequence2

Thought Frankfurt could've finished it in regular time. That abysmal fall from the German defender to lead up to the Rangers goal must've been so odious for Frankfurt backers. Luckily, they got the goal back straight away. This game for me was mainly if Rangers could capitalize on Frankfurt's mistakes. They were making a lot of them. Either way, I'm happy for Frankfurt. Congrats.


Ket_Cz

Oh Aaron
