Video: Puncheon controversy after penalty miss

Basingstoke Gazette: Jason Puncheon Jason Puncheon

Jason Puncheon has found himself in a spat with Neil Warnock after his horror penalty miss for Crystal Palace at the weekend.

Puncheon, on loan at Palace from Saints, ballooned a spot kick over the bar in the defeat against Tottenham.

So far off target was the penalty that pundits and fans have even been discussing whether it was the worst penalty ever taken.

To make matters worse Puncheon had engaged in some banter on Twitter recently offering another footballer advice on how to take penalties.

Warnock appeared and made comments about the penalty which prompted Puncheon to take to Twitter to blast the man who signed him on loan from Saints for QPR two years ago. He has since deleted those posts.

Here is the penalty...

But Puncheon isn't the only one to suffer a bad miss. How about this classic from Pat Nevin...

Surely Puncheon has some way to go to beat this belter...

Harry Kewell used to be really good...

This one is still orbiting the moon...

Jay Rodriguez has been brilliant for Saints. He was for Burnley too. But he did have an unfortunate slip at the wrong time

Who could forget Diana Ross of course...

Will Smith is just as bad...

Back to the pros now and this is pretty bad...

Just don't try and be clever...

That's the one that came immediately to my mind.

Punch's was bad but far from the worst.

Watered penalty spot or not, Beck's penalty against Portugal in the Euros at the Estádio de Luz was a hell of a lot worse.

For advice on how to take a penalty ask ex- Saint Dave Peach. A master blaster, I don't think he EVER missed one! IMO the best left back never to play for England. How much would he be worth today?
