Pens is an abbreviation for penalties, mate 😃

In the knockout stages of a tournament, if the scoreline is tied after 90 minutes there is an extra-time period of 30 minutes to see if one team can triumph. If the scores are still level, penalties are then used to decide the winner.

Each team gets 5 penalties each - whoever scores the most penalties, wins. Each penalty has to be taken by a different player.

However, on occasion, the ties are still level after the 5 penalties are taken… this then results in a further round of 1 penalty each (sometimes referred to as ‘sudden death penalties’) - to be taken by players who have not yet taken a penalty - and it continues until there is a winner.

Sometimes this results in both goalkeepers taking penalties, occasionally against each other - which is quite a rare event, and usually fun/entertaining to watch.

If the scores are still level after everyone has taken a penalty - it just resets back to the players who originally took the set of 5 penalties - and continues until there is a winner…

 

This video may show / explain it better (a 15-14 win on penalties for Liverpool a couple of years back)…

If it was up to me, if teams were still tied after the 30 minute extra time period, I would turn off the clock and have them play soccer until someone scores. (Team that scores wins the game)

Goodbye, maybe.

What is going on?

Read the whole forum and you can figure it out now.

Do you really how long that would take? I mean even if limited it to threads in recent use it would take a while.

I’ll wait.

Well you’ll be waiting a long, long, time.

I won’t be actively waiting.

I am not surprised.

I’m taking a few classes over the summer, and one of them is this required communications course. Today, the teacher mentioned how a misogynist disagreed with a feminist’s position to “kill all men”. And yet… I feel like any rational human being would disagree with that.

If the feminist meant it literally, I would hope everyone would disagree with it. Blame men for as much as you want, but murdering all of them???

Current Events. No debates! Light political discussion allowed, but if it turns into a debate, take it to the politics thread and include a link here.

no. Sorry, I feel differently about traditions.

Are there any traditions you don’t like or is it just across the board you’re really into traditions.

I’m sure there are a few that I don’t like. But mostly, I am into traditions.
