The crazy goalmouth scramble between Sheffield United and Norwich in the 1996-97 season.

It was in October 1996 that the Blades' moment in history was assured - with a comical goalmouth scramble in a First Division game against Norwich City at the Norfolk sides's Carrow Road stadium.

The woodwork, farcial finishing, goal line clearances and City goalkeeper Bryan Gunn all came to Norwich's rescue as the Blades beseiged the goal in a fifteen second comedy of errors.

The ball pings around the goalmouth as players from both sides watch helplessly as it zips back and forth - without ever finding its way into the back of the net.

The Blades, under the guardianship of Howard Kendall, ended up drawing the otherwise uneventful game on October 30 1-1 - with the point contributing towards the Bramall Lane side contesting the end of season play-offs.

But it was just a chapter in many years of play-off misery, the Blades losing the Wembley final against Crystal Palace.

So was this the worst miss of all time? Or are there others from the annals of history that are worse? Let us know!
