There's nothing 'bloody unlucky' about failing to hit the target from a penalty.
He didn't miss the target though did he - he hit the post and the inside at that and it was top corner and the keeper didn't sniff it...

If that rebounds into the net which it does more often than not everyone says what a penalty

Yes he did miss the target. If the 'keeper didn't save it and it wasn't a goal then he missed, regardless of it being close or not.

I thought Ethan was the best player on the pitch and a real leader at the heart of defence.

So often those penalties which hit the inside of the post find their way over the line and it was so close to being a really fantastic penalty. He seems to have a really good head on his shoulders so I'm sure he'll bounce back quickly.

The target is between the posts : he missed the target. But it doesn't mean he's not a very good player : anyone can miss a penalty. More to the point for City fans : when is this bloody tribunal???? !!!!!!!. Sort it out, Taggy & Perryman !!
