The most disrespectful penalty taker ever? Lyle Taylor scores another penalty for Forest

Nottingham Forest's Lyle Taylor

We told you last month that Nottingham Forest’s Lyle Taylor owns the most ‘disrespectful’ penalty technique in football.

And on Tuesday night, he showed it off once again.

Forest were trailing 1-0 to Bristol City when Taylor was introduced with less than 10 minutes remaining.



And the striker produced an absolute madness in injury-time.

First was his now trademark penalty.

If you haven’t seen Taylor’s penalty technique before, prepare to be wowed.

Taylor likes to walk incredibly slowly towards the ball before side-footing it past the confused goalkeeper.

And that’s what he did when facing Daniel Bentley in the Bristol City goal.

To do that in the 91st-minute is just remarkable.

As you may see in the above video, after a very slow run-up, Taylor then sprints to pick the ball out of the back of the net.

Many may have questioned his desire to get the match restarted quickly after just equalising so late on.

However, it paid off as Taylor popped up with a winner immediately after the restart to earn all three points for Forest.

The Trees are currently on a fantastic run of form since Steve Cooper’s arrival as manager, with five wins and a draw in their last six league games.

After the match, Cooper paid tribute to Taylor and his attitude.

“I have only known Lyle for three or four weeks, but I really like him and he has a big heart,” the former Swansea manager said.

“It said a lot that after netting the penalty he rushed to grab the ball for the restart, even though there was so little time left.

“That is the winning mentality we are trying to instil. Lyle has worked really hard on his game since I joined the club and deserved his moments tonight.

“He does some great work for charity, so there is a lot to like about him. But it was a great team effort tonight and a great example of never giving up.”
