Watch Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez’s remarkable miss Wednesday for Manchester United

Has it gotten to the point where “Javier Hernandez” and “unbelievable miss” is a bit redundant?

OK, maybe that’s going a little too far. Still, we have seen so much of this lately, mostly when the man who goes by “Chicharito” has been in a Mexico jersey. His poor performance on opportunities near goal, once a Chicharito calling card, is a big reason Mexico is in a tough spot.

El Tri will start that critical home-and-away playoff against New Zealand next week, with a World Cup berth on the line.

Of course, Chicharito will not be around for this one; He wasn’t called in, which would have been just this side of unimaginable a year ago. At any rate, here is the miss everyone is talking about Wednesday for Manchester United against Real Sociedad, a match that ended in a scoreless draw:

    Yes, he should have kept it down and knocked it home, but it was still a moving ball. Having played the game my entire life I’ll tell you that it’s not as easy as it looks and while he should pocket that about 80 of 100 times, RVP’s spot kick is a much easier chance and should be criticized at a much greater rate.

    You guys remember when everyone was wishing for an American version of Chicharito?

    Mind the gap

    Has it gotten to the point where “Steve Davis” and “stupid, irrelevant space-filling article” is a bit redundant?
