    You would think they will be practicing these all week.

    Who would be our our first 5? Assuming they on the pitch after 120 mins.

    Another thing MR has to factor in. My order would be

    All about bottle and nerve.

    McNulty
    JCH
    Kelly
    Shipley
    Doyle

    Bayliss
    Rod
    Reid

    Definately not Max...lol

    Not sure on Shipley.

    I think Bayliss, McNumpty and Ponticelli would score for certain. Doyle too I reckon.

    Not sure on Rod or Kelly or indeed, Reid.

    If it is getting close to pens I would make sure Ponticelli was on the field.

    I wont be watching either way, I didn't watch McNulty's either. Just looked at the floor and waited for the noise.

    It will be unbearable. But there's a good chance it end in stalemate.

    Apart from McNulty (As long as he smashes it) unlike carlisle. And JCH at Mansfield rest are unknown quantity.

    McNulty in normal time. We will not need penalty takers after as we will win in normal time end of.

    If it goes to pens, I just hope we can get every one on target.
    There is nothing worse than (and no excuse for) a shot that flies over the bar.
    At least make their GK make a save!

    Burge should take one. As he hasn't got a clue where he's kicking it! Keepers got no chance of guessing.

    Just going off cool headedness and no fear.

    I'm sure Ponticelli has that by the bucket load when putting the ball on the spot. Doyle too.

    Pretty sure I remember Doyle scoring a pen in his 1st spell with us.

    Chances are, it would go out for a throw in.

    Enough of this - said on another thread, stonking 4-1 victory, including a Grimmer screamer and a County player sent off for constant whining (after Doyle accidentally stamps on him)

    Thing is if JCH and Shipley start. No chance in hell they will play 120 mins.

    Jeez really hope it's decided in 120.

    If it goes to extra time I doubt it would get to pens as I think we'd lose. Some of the players' stamina is suspect to say the least IMO.

    Whilst i agree - i wouldn't say Notts is any better - they looked knackered on Saturday...

    I think it will be decided in 90

    They are the much more experienced or older team. As we saw Forte was suffering with cramp. I think we are very fit team personally.

    If it gets that far Burge will save one at a minimum.
    There I've said it !B-)

    Doyle and McNulty are dead certainties. If JCH is on the pitch, he will be too as well as Kelly. They’d be my top 4. Then a toss up between Bayliss, Shipley and a defender for the 5th.

    Pretty much everyone saying

    McNulty, Doyle, Kelly, JCH and Shipley

    Few going for JP and Bayliss.

    Another reason why Biamou will start and JCH will come on as sub.

    Not sure about Kelly - has he any history of taking them at previous clubs? He strikes me as the sort of player that will look to gently place one in the corners rather than put his laces through it ie the sort of old pro who regularly turns out to be the type to miss in these occasions. Can't see how anyone would put him in the penalty pecking order above Ponticelli.

    He's wanted to take one a couple of times during matches this season, if he's on the pitch I bet he will be one of the 5....

    You’d have to let him take it from 35 yards on the volley!

    We understand his strengths and weaknesses maybe.

    If Biamou takes a penalty il have a heart attack.

    Striker should be putting himself forward or at least be confident of scoring a penalty surely?
