Interesting facts about the lads

Larsson‘s miss v Wolves was in December 2011. Since then I think only McGeady has missed (v Norwich & Rotherham).

Excluding shoot outs it‘s impressive that we’ve only missed 2 in 9 years. We’ve had plenty too. Be interesting to see what the general average penalty success rate is...
 
Is there any more interesting facts??

He also missed against Burton before we got relegated

The most pathetic penalty attempt ever by a Sunderland player was one taken by Jeff Whitley.
Michael Gray’s was not much better.
Mickey's was definitely the most famous and most memorable.

@Mansfield Mackem I saw your list of all-time penalty scorers. I can't find it though, hoy it up again.
I reckon Gary Rowell was probably the best penalty taker we've had, but the stats listed don't show the success rate.
In more recent times I always felt confident went Borini was taking a penalty.

I’ve just mentioned on another thread and no one commented. We have the record for most penalties scored consecutively in the premier league. From when Larsson missed aginst wolves right before O’Neil became manager I think it was 16/17 cant remember who missed if anyone one but we have the record

Any other interesting facts like this?
.. What was the record before the Premier League started? If it was better then in reality we only have the record since 1992 ..
