I love Benjani to death but why was he taking the injury time penalty against West Ham?

Yep, we were poor in the match overall and we probably did not deserve to win, but when we were given an injury time chance to win the 3 points why was Benjani taking the spot kick?

He might have been the top goalscorer in the premier league at the start of the weekend but can too many people honestly say they were confident he would convert when he stepped up – I sure as hell knew that I was not. Sulley Muntari looked like he was going to be the man to take it, until it was ‘decided’ that Benjani would.

Surely who is going to take penalties should be decided before a game is played? It did not look as though it had been, as if it had then it was not Benjani and they went against the agreed plan.

I am not looking to point fingers, as I am a huge fan of his, but come on fellas we all know he should not have stepped up – how much damage could this now do to his confidence?

This is now 4 points that we have lost due to missed penalties, had we scored both we would have comfortable been in the top 4?
