John Madejski's WalletStranded a penalty kick is either scored or missed/saved and players cannot follow up to score to stop encroachment into the penalty area - in relation to the above - makes sense.
^^^ that is sh*t
Would have absolutely screwed reading last season too! I reckon we'd have actually missed out on the playoffs
Yep agreed - thought it was meant as just an the end of the game i.e penalty kick is last action but appears to be suggested for all kicks.
Part of the idea seems to be if an attacking player encroaches, penalty is automatically given as missed - no retake. If defender encroaches and pen missed then retaken. If that can be policed properly then fair enough - if all competitions use the officials behind the goal then the linesman can be responsible for checking for encroachment.
