Lampard and penalties

September 12, 2012

Apparently Frank Lampard scored a late penalty today to give England an equaliser against Ukraine. After that goal I came across the statistics from all his penalties on a CFC site. It’s interesting to see that Lampard has only missed one of 25 pens when placed in the middle or to the keeper’s left hand side.

No wonder that today’s penalty was a powerful shot close to the middle of the goal. The CFC site also provides detailed information on all the penalties Lampard has taken for Chelsea. I will come back to this table after I analysed it if I find some interesting patterns.

There are so much statistics, general theories and analyses on penalty strategies out there, and I believe I will come back with some own thoughts/analyses/models for penalty strategies in later posts.
