For the most part, 2011 was a rather predictable year in terms of major title winners. Manchester United won the English Premier League, Barcelona won La Liga, AC Milan won Serie A, and the UEFA Champions League Final was contested between the eventual title winners in England and Spain.

That's as close to the script as it will probably get in any given year. Nevertheless, 2011 did hold a number of surprises for world football as a whole.

Some teams, who may or not be pictured above, started 2011 in imperious form, looking set to dominate in all their competitions, only to falter spectacularly when it came to trophy-winning time.

Others teams managed to impress us with their improbable league titles, and one team in particular managed to secure its place in history by completing an impressive treble-winning season.

These teams and others are listed ahead as we profile the 10 most unpredictable teams of 2011.
