We interrupt our usual schedule of Top Bloopers of the Week on a Monday to profile the top 10 misses of the season so far, mainly because four of the 10 have occurred in the past seven days.
Interestingly many of these misses seem to come in bunches and there are some true shockers below. Please note the misses below are in chronological order.
1. Conor Casey (Colorado Rapids v KC Wizards, July 18, 2010) It's the stuff of dreams, the score is locked at 1-1 and you are up against the keeper in the 90th minute. Once round the keeper its a formality, surely... oh dear.
2. Ola Kamara (Odd Grenland v Stromsgodset, July 25, 2010) Once the Odd Grenland keeper Arsen had parried out, it looked a formality. It wasn't.
3. Rui Miguel (CSKA Sofia v Cliftonville, July 27, 2010) Unlike some of the other shockers below this one had little impact on the two-legged Europa League tie which CSKA won comfortably, but it does beggar belief. Miguel could not have been closer to goal - a true shocker.
4. Antolin Alcaraz (Tottenham v Wigan, August 28, 2010) Alcaraz was rescued moments later as Hugo Rodallega won the match for Wigan but the Paraguay defender should thank the Colombian striker, as Alcaraz was virtually under the bar for this miss.
5. Carlos Tevez (Sunderland v Manchester City, August 29, 2010) Manchester City's only Premier League defeat so far will undoubtedly be remembered for the shocking chip over the bar from Tevez. Features of the video include Yaya Toure's mammoth run and the Argentinean commentators simply saying "nooooo".
6. Marco Perez (Deportivo La Coruna v Real Zaragoza, August 29, 2010) The 19-year-old Colombian may never be presented with an easier chance in his football career. The Depor defence are still probably laughing at this shocker and with the game finishing in a 0-0 stalemate a little more salt was thrown on the wound.
7. Jonas Oliveira (Gremio v Gremio Prudente, October 6, 2010) After rounding the keeper Oliveira really had little excuse for smacking the post. He did though score a hat-trick and provide an assist in the 4-0 victory.
8. Pavel Pogrebnyak (Republic of Ireland v Russia, October 8, 2010) The Stuttgart striker showed his defensive qualities with a real shocker from a searching left wing cross by Zhirkov.
9. Lukas Podolski (Germany v Turkey, October 8, 2010) At international level Podolski is usually deadly, he wasn't on Friday night. The clip is further enhanced by Mesut Oezil's nonplussed reaction and Jogi Loew smacking a ball into the crowd in frustration on the touchline.
10. David Villa (Spain v Lithuania, October 8, 2010) A quite incredible miss from one of the, if not the, top striker in world football. Villa had all the time in the world and a gaping net, quite why he seemed intent on hitting the corner when he had the whole net to aim it is a conundrum.
