Minor topic I know, but watching the league one highlights I just saw another example of a player having a penalty saved and then scoring the rebound as he is closest to the ball than all the defenders forced to stay outside the box. If the pen hit the post / bar, the taker can't touch it until another outfield player has. I think it's time to extend that to when the keeper saves it, as it always seems an unfair advantage in the second phase of play that the person who missed the penalty is already six yards closer than the defenders. It should always just be a race between the players stood on the 18 yard line.
Not a big issue, I concede, but it always seems something to me that should be changed and would be easy to do, only requiring a slight tweak of an already existing rule.
Phew, that was tough to explain. Not sure it was worth it either. Still, I've put it out there.

I'd go the other way and allow the taker to play the rebound off the woodwork. It's a penalty afterall, for foul play.

Opinions, opinions...

Yeah, fair call. I think establishing it's a secondary advantage and allowing him to score off the woodwork as well would make more sense than having him being able to touch it one way and not the other. I normally side with attacking players so I don't mind your rule change at all.
I think I still just edge towards the idea that the punishment for the foul is the penalty and maybe yellow / red card; and that once the penalty is missed the advantage is over and it should be equal opportunity for both sides to get to the rebound.
But I think either of our suggestions are slightly better than the current system.
