For those Tottenham fans who made it back from Switzerland clutching little more than a Toblerone, there's little else to do but smile about Emmanuel Adebayor's woeful penalty miss.

The Togolese "striker" screwed his spot-kick high and wide to help dump Tottenham out of the Europa League, and since his effort crashed into the fence behind the Basel goal, it was given the full treatment on the Internet.

I'm going to save Spurs fans the misery of seeing Adebayor's aberration again, and instead I've come up with 10 more penalties that went horribly wrong.

When finding these shots, I was astounded by the fuss some it takes to put a ball into a net from 12 yards away with just a goalkeeper to beat.

There were all sorts of chips, dinks, blasts, shimmies, slips, trips, falls and fails, so I've dug out 10 of the best for a bit of lighthearted Friday banter.

Let me know what you think of these and feel free to post any of your own that are worthy of consideration.
