    Welcome to this week's edition of world football blunders of the week, featuring Yoan Gouffran, Millwall's kit man and more.

    Last week's edition was dominated by BBC Match of the Day's shocking organisation in the graphics department. Read on to see the biggest mistakes of this weekend, ranging from Twitter mistakes to glaring misses.

If There Was Ever a Time for a Finish...

    ...that was it.

    Newcastle United drew 0-0 at home to West Ham United on Saturday, ensuring their season remains scoreless amid rumours Yohan Cabaye wants to leave.

    In the 92nd minute, Yoan Gouffran was presented with a golden chance to win it against the Hammers, but failed to convert from just three yards.

    Heartbreak at St. James' Park. 

You're Getting Sacked in the Morning!

    A Spanish inquisition awaits Millwall's kit man as he inexplicably forgot to take the club's kit to Sheffield Wednesday away.

    The home side were able to help, lending their opponents their away kit from last season to ensure the match would go ahead for the fans who'd made the trip.

    One might think it's the sort of thing worth double-checking? After all, he had just one job

Come On, Stoke!

    Meet Crystal Palace, the most generous, pleasant club in the Premier League.

    So generous, in fact, that they do their best to wish the opposing team good luck during games, as was the case this weekend when they traveled to the Britannia Stadium.

    When announcing Stoke's substitutes on Twitter, Palace signed off with a diplomatic "Come on Stoke!"

    It worked, as the Potters won 2-1. 

How...Just How?

    The worst miss of the footballing weekend was, without a doubt, found outside Europe.

    Neil Benjamin of W Connection FC had the chance to break the deadlock against MLS side Houston Dynamo. However, after his teammate pulled off the classic "square the ball" move in FIFA 13, the young Trinidadian did the unthinkable.

    From five yards, just wide of goal, he hit the side netting. Unbelievable.
