It seems more penalty kicks have been blocked this season than in prior years. The result is many fantasy points have been lost for managers whose players have missed penalty kicks. Conversely,
some fantasy managers have gained points from goal keepers who have blocked the shots. In that regard, I have a question. But first a disclaimer: I am worse than AVB and admit I never played competitive soccer. American football, basketball and baseball yes--but not real football. With that understood, why don't more players kick the ball straight and high into the net? It seems that nearly all of the time, goal keepers dive low and to their left or right.
This Yank would like to be enlightened. Ta!
