Why didn't bolaise take it?? I am shocked he didn't want to add to his account. Bruce the fool that he is took off Abraham when he should have taken kodjia off

I’m not angry with Whelan. We should be more prepared. But if he wanted to be a leader he probably should have told one of the set piece specialists to take it instead of trying to be a hero.

If they had wanted it enough, he wouldn’t need to!

Honestly, I wouldn't have backed any of them on the pitch tonight to score that. Still one of the most bizarre things I've seen.

Only player with bottle to take it, other players should be ashamed of themselves

Whelan took the pen as he was the most experienced according to Bruce. Wtf is that?? Absolute garbage !!

In that case, we should have wheeled Deadly out to take it. What an idiot this man is (Bruce not Whelan).

Such a random player to take a last minute penalty, has he ever taken one for Stoke or ROI?

Really considering he just scored and is an attacker Bolaise should've been on it.

In the situation aswell hitting it hard down the middle is usually the smart option aswell as keepers very rarely stay still.

i'd never criticise a player for stepping up to the plate in a situation like that. especially whelan who never takes them anyway.

it was a result of piss poor management which resulted in him having to take one.

To me it looked as if Bolasie wanted it, but then the final discussion was between Whelan and Hutton?? 

Very strange. 

I think Whelan does a good role for the team but I still have absolutely no idea why he took this pen. All around us in the ground we were dumbfounded

What a clearing in the woods I couldn't believe it when he stepped up.

He should of blasted it straight down the middle.  I would have put it in the top corner.

He's shite, we all know that, but he stepped up to take a pen because other players with greater reputations didn't. Grealish is a total bottle job, we can't say the same about Whelan.

Cant be too angry at Whelan, he had the minerals to take the penalty, you score some you miss some.

It happens to the best of players.
