Standard of their penalties was unbelievable
and then there was one
The first was the same only that Trapp chose a side
Glasner said they didn't train penalties because the players do it for fun anyways.
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
Kamada and Roofe showed no nerves.
i was so worried about Kamada because my god he had an awful game but that pen was ice cold
Hauge was kinda awful for me.
I was shacky by Lenz and Borré lol Borré just so massive.
Wait I thought his dribbling was fantastic during the game. I think the broadcast even mentioned he was stellar
Seriously, there were like 4 penalties where the goalie dove the right way but no chance
I knew Frankfurt were going to win as soon as the commentators called McGregor 'the best penalty saver in the world.'
especially Kamada for Frankfurt, talk about millimetres, hits the inside of the post and goes in the net.
same with Roofe, inside of the post when a miss would have lost the game on the spot
Every single one of Frankfurt's penalties were completely unsaveable imo
Ramsey missing was the most predictable outcome ever.
Sad how true this is man every penalty was absolutely world class but his 😭😭
First penalty was not world class, it was straight down the middle
World class mentality
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.
9 fantastic penalties and then there was that one... holy shit was it bad
Never bring on a player just for the penalties lol
Unless it's Tim Krol I guess
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
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.
Van Gaal disagrees
comes on in the 118th minute
misses a penalty and loses the final
refuses to elaborate
Knew he'd miss as soon as the commentator said he was signed for big moments
Knew he’d miss as soon as he played for Arsenal for a decade
How many times have we seen this go wrong in the past year?
I couldn't remember. I have all those memories blocked off.
His mistake was subbing only one player for the shootouts. Should've been two obviously smh
Roofe came on as well...
The only one you should sub on for penalties is the allmighty God Time Krul
🦑 T E N T A K R U L 🦑
This is more confirmation bias than anything- you remember the times it goes wrong as it’s more notable
Exactly, I remember in last years Europa final, united brought in basically all the subs just for penalties and they all scored.
Everyone scored in that final though, well almost everyone
Some say it’s still going on to this day.
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
make the child a juve fan
You'll need to find an appropriate penance.
Dude's an Arsenal fan, he's suffering enough.
As soon as he came on you knew it’d happen
Just Ramsay things.
Agent Rambo sent in to demoralise the Scots before the World Cup playoff final. What a ledge.
Always knew I liked him
Juve DNA showing through
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.
Absolutely. Didn't look like he wanted to be there
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'
This was also me, in that wording and order
Can you elaborate on that? Genuinely curios.
Barely played a game for rangers has he? Comes on near end, written in the stars
Dude looked kinda shook
It’s just too convenient for him to be the one to miss
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"
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.
I actually agree he didn't look comfortable.
Coming on specifically for pens is a hard thing to do
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.
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
Except Roofe who came on at the same time and banged it. Ramsey just bottled it.
Man, I just love penalty shootouts when my team is not involved.
You've had a really rough year.
lmao trapp won european silverware before psg did
If you wanna win any european trophy, just go to PSG and wait til they get rid of you
Ancelotti: real shit🤨🤨🤨
Tuchel as well
Add in Thiago Silva
Next up Poch
Unless he comes back to Spurs, in which case it's an unstoppable force vs an immovable object
Or juan bernat
"That's right, we're selling you to Juventus" :/
Unrelated but the guy is handsome af too lmao.
~~Average German GK~~ on a second thought nah, I was just thinking about Trapp and Karius
Oli Kahn: Helloooo
And Tim Wiese obviously
his gf is a brazilian top model and she's still the reacher lmao
Check out his fiancee. Izabel Goulart, Brazilian VS model.
Trapp still is somehow the more attractive one.
>Check out his fiancee. Izabel Goulart, Brazilian VS model.
Wow, she's 37 too.
Fuck off that’s his Gf?
He missed the pen right as the pundit was building him up lmao
HE WAS BROUGHT IN FOR THE BIG MOMENTS!
To be fair, he gave the rest of Scottish football one hell of a moment.
Lifetime Celtic legend too tbf.
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.
Afcon, Euros also
World Cup Final penalties confirmed?
Argentia vs portugal, either messi or ronaldo sky it
League cup, the play off yesterday
And the League Cup
My heart cannot take another one
You want Feyenoord or Roma to win so badly?
I reckon they’ll just head home after a 90 min. draw
Pens are fun to watch but only in moderation, this is a bit much
For a neutral its fine...but if your club is through that...fuck no!
I keep missing my bedtime
Drink milk and eat a cookie bro
Because everyone plays not to lose.... hope our CL Final doesn't end up the same way lol
11th in the Bundesliga goes to the champions league.
i mean who needs to try in the league when you can just walk Europa including Barca, West Ham, Real Betis, and Rangers /s
I think they didn't had a W in their last 10 league games or something
Thats also the exact moment when Frankfurt realized they could simply win the EL
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.
Piece o cake, innit?
So probably the lowest positioned team that's made it to the CL because of an EL win?
You just knew the player with the most ridiculous wages would have the absolute worst penalty of them all.
Left Frankfurt for PSG to win league titles and left PSG to win Europa league - Trapp masterclass
That comment reminds about the crazy amount of keeper PSG had since the takeover.
Gigio, Navas, Sirigu, Trapp, Areola, Rico, Buffon, Douchez …
Trapp what a hero
That save in the last 2-3min of the 2nd ET was insane
Absolute clutch to have kostic and borre as the last 2 shot takers
To be fair, Borre misses like half of the ones he takes 😅
Kostic aswell, he was 2 out of 4 if im correct
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.
Trapp has always been class, so happy to see him succeeding
Borre Frankfurt legend
Everywhere a fellow colombian scores, I see a GreatSpaniard comment.
unironically this. he'll be a ingrained face of this el run, not just because of the final.
That goal against Barca
Borré, Frankfurt legend
DA IST DAS DING!
Jetzt wird aus dem scheiß Pokal gesoffen
Eintracht hat es verdient, nicht nur des Finale wegens, sondern wegen ihrer gesamten Europa League Saison! Die besten Gegner haben sie rausgehauen. Wahnsinn und die spielen in der CL.
Using “wegen/ wegens” the old way, love it.
Trapp won his team the trophy and prevented a celebrity from dying tomorrow. Legend
FIRST GERMAN TEAM SINCE US IN 25 YEARS TO WIN THE EUROPA LEAGUE LETS GO FRANKFURT 🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅
Beating Barcelona, West Ham, and Real Betis on the way. Very impressive, they didn’t take the easy route.
3-0 up on Camp Nou until min 85 is no small feat
and did it undefeated.
Motherfuckers didn't sell anything to drink. They closed the stands at the beginning of the match....then they turned off water in the restrooms....... hurensöhne. It was way over 30C
Insane run by them. Absolutely deserved.
We peaked in Barcelona and fizzled out in Sevilla. Perfect run and just carried it over the finish line.
Losing to the champions at the last second ain't a bad feat after all. Congrats to Eintracht Frankfurt and their fans.
As a rangers fan i cant tell if this helps or hurts
Borre got balls of steel
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
Unless its Tim Krul. Then it works
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???
flair checks out
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.
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.
Seville was screwed either way
r/soccer in a nutshell: half the comments are about Ramsey
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
best day of my life
Shocking pen to lose the game on
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.
It had to be Ramsey
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.
Great words, penalties are pure luck, i feel for ya.
Honestly it could have gone both ways. Pens is a coin toss. You can be damn proud. What a final
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.
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
There's still the Jubilee to look forward to, lads
If she makes it.
Ramsey didn't score so she should be fine
Ramsey not scoring his penalty was a humanitarian act
something stupid like 8 a year
Calvin Bassey motm despite the result, what a performance
Transfermarkt: current market value at 900k £. This is going to be corrected asap.
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.
stupid sexy Trapp
Only top notch penalties so far...
Ramsey: "hold my beer"
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 !!!!!!
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
All the hype for Aaron Ramsey just for him to miss the decisive penalty and knock Rangers out is real chef's kiss
Trapp with that final save and saved penalty MVP
How do you do, fellow Frankfurters?
how did ramsey end up at rangers in the first place ? that seems like such a strange transfer
When you’re about five years into the FM save and the transfers start getting freaky!
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.
I blame Boris.
They'll be dancing in the streets of Eintracht tonight
They‘ll be so sad in the streets of Rangers tonight
Can't say the same for Rangers City
The city Rangers on the other hand will be disappointed
The famous city of Eintracht
Right next to two other large German cities, Werder and Hertha.
I wonder how the citizens of Borussia feel about this final?
Reckon I should take a trip to AC one of these days.
The streets of _Football Club_ will not sleep tonight
