Nottingham Forest Striker Lyle Taylor Has 'The Most Disrespectful' Approach To Penalties In World Football

Nottingham Forest Striker Lyle Taylor Has 'The Most Disrespectful' Approach To Penalties In World Football

Nottingham Forest striker Lyle Taylor took the saying "cool, calm and collected" to new levels on Wednesday night when he scored a dramatic last gasp penalty against Coventry.

In the seventh minute of stoppage time at the City Ground, the 30-year-old was brought down in the area deep into injury time and moments later, decided to step up and take the spot-kick.

It's fair to say many would crumble under the pressure but Taylor stepped up confidently to secure his side their first home win in eight games.

And when I say confidently, I mean the most relaxed penalty run-up ever.

He casually walked to the 12 yard line before sending goalkeeper Marko Marosi the wrong way. "The coolest man. The most composed man in the City ground." the commentator says. "How does he take his penalties like that?"

Just take a look at this outrageous technique. Talk about having ice in your veins.

Of course, this isn't the first time Taylor has converted like this in such high pressure situations.

Nottingham Forest’s Lyle Taylor Hits Out At ‘Black Lives Matter’ And Taking A Knee

Last season, when the striker was playing under Lee Bowyer at Charlton Athletic, the 29-year-old played a huge part in a game against Barnsley when his side were handed a last minute penalty after a close encounter at Oakwell.

Barnsley were 2-1 up thanks to goals from Cauley Woodrow and Conor Chaplin but a foul from defender Bambo Diaby on highly rated midfielder Conor Gallagher handed The Addicks a lifeline in the 90th minute.

And that man Taylor converted from the spot in typically calm fashion, despite boos from around the stadium.

After that game, Charlton manager Lee Bowyer admitted that he "didn't fancy" Lyle Taylor to score.

"To be fair, I didn't fancy Lyle to score! When he's walking up to take the penalty I didn't fancy him to score, but obviously he does." he said.

"He's so calm in that situation and he's the person you'd want to be taking the penalty so, thankfully, it went in."

Is this the coolest penalty you've ever seen?
