always embarrassing to watch, how in 2024 after all those embarrassing incidents that have gone before, has the manager of each club not made it crystal clear at the start of the season who the teams designated penalty taker is, and if he isn't on the pitch, who the second and third taker would be, yet it still always happens, teammates fighting over the ball when a pen is given, shows lack of leadership at the top, I'd fine any player who squabbles in a moment like that.

Seems Poch was very angry and they will be out the door if they do it again.

Dele Ali also made the good point that neither of them were trying to get the ball off Palmer when the pen was at 3-3 v United in the 100th minute Grin

I think some foreigners think it's their pen when fouled. Silva took the ball off Jackson and gave it to Madeuke (not that the pen was for the challenge on him).   

But what player on the planet thinks it's his when Palmer had scored 8 from 8 (before tonight's pen). People blaming Poch but it goes without saying, you would think. Palmer on NBC in the US was asked about it and he said Poch talked to the squad afterwards. He was asked whether he was the designated penalty taker and he said 'I am... NOW'.

Palmer was diplomatic in his Sky interview.

When Poch was asked about it he could have done the same and moved to next Q, but he went on about it for 2 or 3 minutes.

I agree its flucking embarrassing watching this carry on.
But with the amount of pens being given these days the player fouled ought to be forced to take the spot kick. Like in NBA basketball.
It may even stop this epidemic of simulation and ref-baiting in the EPL.
Its one thing rolling about screaming blue murder when you are safe in the knowledge that your superstar striker is likely to convert. It would be an entirely different matter if you had to step up yourself and do the business in a tight game.

That can be got round thelatarps, carry the fallen player off and bring him back on after the penalty's been taken. Good idea otherwise.

Nobody's mentioned it, but those same idiot players will be the 1st to complain of racism when supporters taunt them, which they surely will.

It would be more of an incentive to divers if they got to take the pen too (and get a goal bonus).

It's also disrespectful to the opponent considering the scoreline at the time, it's like a group of vultures fighting over a carcass.

Getting paid millions for kicking a ball not enough for these children? I guess that players like Jackson and the other one won't be getting on the score-sheet very often without getting a few pens. Jackson has shown that he's nowhere near good enough for this level, and I strongly suspect that he won't be at Chelsea next season. Haven't seen much of the other one, but neither of them has done anything to enhance their (already scant in Jackson's case) reputation there.

It's bad management,he's with the players every day ,cant he say to them if we get a pen this is who takes it ,what's so difficult? Anyone ignoring my instructions gets dropped.
Shambles of a club ,need a stronger manager .

Alli's point was very fair.

Credit to Gallagher and Silva for showing leadership telling them to come away. They should have learnt their lesson when Sterling took the ball against Leicester and missed

Chelsea are largely stuck with these mugs for a long time. Jackson's reported wages are only about 65k, but who else is going to pay him that? He might leave on loan with Chelsea paying some of his wages, or maybe the Saudis can help out again.
