Being a supporter from abroad for whom there is no point in buying a season ticket, I can only pick some games per season and every West Ham match which I go to in the London Stadium must be selected carefully. Flights have to be booked in time (sometimes with Laudamotion, one of the airlines […]

Pep Guardiola has one job at Manchester City. Win the Champions League. The Premier League wins are nice, the cups are nice, but everyone and their mother knows the club’s main ambition is to conquer Europe. Pep has now gone three years at City, and six years without Messi, without winning the Champions League. That’s […]

SERGIO AGUERO had a spectacular 2018-19 season, scoring 21 goals as Manchester City edged to the Premier League title. But that doesn’t mean he’s exempt from our annual miss of the season poll… Sergio Aguero somehow slotted wide early in Man City’s 6-0 win over Chelsea The Argentine star spurned a glorious chance in the game against Chelsea – and joins seven others in contention for the wooden spoon of all awards. Take a look at all eight misses and have your say in our poll at the bottom of the article. MAMADOU SAKHO CRYSTAL PALACE v Newcastle, Sep 22 WITH the game poised at 0-0, Sakho had a guilt-edged chance to bag all three points for the hosts. Andros Townsend delivered a millimetre perfect cross, with the ex-Liverpool man nodding wide from just a couple of yards out. Sakho collapsed to the ground, clutching his face – looking as though he hoped the ground would swallow him whole. MATT RITCHIE Burnley vs NEWCASTLE, Nov 26 HAVING already laid on an assist in a nervy 2-1 win, you can forgive Ritchie for his miss. But somehow managing to miss from two yards out is not to be forgotten – after charging in at the far post with the goal gaping. Ritchie blasted the ball wide, but fortunately for Ritchie, boss Rafa Benitez later revealed he is now able to laugh at the miss… FERNANDO LLORENTE TOTTENHAM vs Watford, Jan 30 WELL, he’s hardly been prolific for Spurs, but this miss was different league. Ben Foster had saved his initially shot smartly – but the ball rebounded straight o the Llorente. Incredibly, the Spaniard booted it a foot over the bar using his knee. Tekkers. He did redeem himself though as he and Son Heung-min scored in the final ten minutes to come from behind to win 2-1. Mamadou Sakho could scarcely believe he missed from two yards out Llorente somehow kneed the ball over the bar from a yard out against Watford JAMES McARTHUR CRYSTAL PALACE vs West Ham, Feb 9 TRAILING 1-0 at home, McArthur looked certain to level up the game. After doing the hard part and sending the goalkeeper for a hot dog with a sublime dummy, McArthur managed to hit the post with his lofted effort from all of two yards. Wilfried Zaha spared his blushes 20 minutes later when he secured the all-important equaliser at Selhurst Park. SERGIO AGUERO MAN CITY vs Chelsea, Feb 10 ULTIMATELY, it mattered not as Man City ran riot in a 6-0 drubbing of Chelsea. But moments before scoring a sensational 25-yard screamer, Aguero gave us his contender for miss of the century. With City 1-0 up against Chelsea, the ball was fired across the box into the path of the Argentine superstar. With the goal at his mercy, Aguero somehow managed to slot the ball wide – with Pep Guardiola left flat on his backside with his head in his hands. GLENN MURRAY Leicester vs BRIGHTON, Feb 26 IN a game Brighton desperately needed to win, with relegation a looming threat, Murray fluffed a chance to steal a point in the 2-1 defeat. With the goal gaping, the goal-hungry forward smashed his shot over the bar with the score 1-0 to Leicester. The Foxes then doubled their lead before Davy Propper halved the deficit to no avail, as Murray claimed he had to “hold his hands up” for the loss. [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN FOOTBALL” posts_category=”10″ posts_number=”12″ query_type=”popular” /] SEAN MORRISON CARDIFF vs Liverpool, April 21 WITH the relegated Bluebirds just 1-0 down, Morrison fluffed his lines as he wide from inches out with the goal wide open. Morrison got underneath the ball as it skewed off its head and miles wide after escaping the marking of Sadio Mane. To make things worse, he conceded a penalty just moments later and Cardiff lost 2-0. SHANE LONG SOUTHAMPTON vs Bournemouth, April 27 IN a thrilling south coast derby draw, with the two teams sharing six goals, Long missed one of the best chances of his career. With the score level at 1-1, Long hit the post from just yards out after his initial shot was saved by Artur Boruc. The silver lining for Long – who’d days earlier scored the fastest goal in Prem history – was that Saints secured their top-flight status with the draw.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has escaped a touchline ban for the Champions League final against Liverpool. Pochettino has been punished by UEFA for Spurs’ semi-final first leg against Ajax kicking off late, but his one-match sanction has been suspended for a year. Mauricio Pochettino will be aiming to win his first piece of silverware as Tottenham boss on June 1 Managers of both clubs are held responsible if a Champions League game does not get under way on time, regardless of the circumstances, and it is the club’s second instance of the offence this season. The first indiscretion earns a warning, as Ajax boss Erik Ten Hag has received, and a repeat offence earns a one-match touchline ban, which is always suspended. It would have been a bitter blow for Pochettino not to have been in the dugout for the club’s biggest-ever game, against their Premier League rivals in Madrid on June 1. Pochettino’s outburst at Mike Dean at Turf Moor back in February earned him a two-game ban [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN FOOTBALL” posts_category=”221″ posts_number=”8″ query_type=”popular” /] The Argentinian has taken Spurs further in Europe than any other man before and his presence on the touchline is a big factor for his team. He has already served a two-match Premier League ban after he accosted referee Mike Dean at the end of his side’s defeat at Burnley in February. Spurs have also been fined £17,519 for the incident and received a separate £4,381 fine for a fan invading the pitch in their quarter-final against Manchester City.
