Oh Tottenham, Tottenham; you had to go and do it. The club are just the definition of bottle jobs, get themselves in a good position, and royally bugger things up when their fans get half excited about something.
The only thing currently going right for the North London side, is their golden boy somehow predicting the future. Other than that, their summer recruits in Vincent Janssen is trying to do his best Memphis Depay impression in the Premier League, whilst Moussa Sissoko might will be on the first bus out in January. So, their exit in the Champions League isn’t actually all that shocking.
However, there are sometimes where eyebrows are raised Carlo Ancelotti style, which leads the world more shocked than the Old Trafford stewards were at the Arsenal game…
Absolutely shocking when you had the likes of Patrick Kluvert, Rivlado and Luis Enrique in the side; not that shocking when you find out Louis van Gaal was at the helm.

Manchester United, 2011/12
Not just the end of United in the CL this season, but also the beginning of the end for Nemanja Vidić's career. A shocking group stage campaign, particularly considering they were in three of the previous four finals.

From the heroes to zeroes in the competition. Winning it the previous season, and managing to scrape their way in, even though they finished outside the top four. And, then crashed and burned out the group stages the following season. Still, they won the Europa League ?.
Just goes to show how truly shit Serie A is. Juve won the league this season by 17 points, but couldn't even get out of their Champions League group. No wonder Poglost found it so easy over in Italy.

Ukrainian side, Chornomorets, dumped the Dutch giants out in 2013. How a side which sounds like something I should have been studying at GCSE biology knocked the big guns out we have no idea.
Olympique de Marseille, 2013/14
Ok, to say this was a shock is unfair. The poor old French side were in a group of death with, Borussia Dortmund, Arsenal and Napoli. But, they didn't manage to pick up a single point in six games. Shocking. And therefore firmly in the list, as they aren't a bad team.

Manchester United, 2015/16
We're not letting LvG get off lightly. This has to be up their with truly one of the Dutchman's finest. In a group which had more donkeys in it than a Donald Trump Advisory Team, the Red Devils should have gone a whole month without wages not getting out their group last season.
Feel a bit better now, Spurs fans? Some shockers over the years, where the big boys have been complacent, and chucked and dumped out the competition quicker than we’d all last in a night with Margot Robbie.
Have a look at Champions League legend, Andriy Shevchenko’s, all-time XI…
GK) Gianluigi Buffon
Selected by just about all legends, nowadays. Image Source: Casw
Only words that come to our heads here, are Tina Turner's 'simply the best'. Image Source: Media Tumblr
Perhaps an element of Andriy's Chelsea days getting the better of him here? A solid centre-back, but to put JT in the ultimate XI, really?! Image Source: Perform
CB) Alessandro Nesta
Can't disagree with this. With 78 caps for Italy, and one World Cup to his name - the centre-back had one hell of a career. Image Source: Klikbola11
LB) Paolo Maldini
To have a player who could play as solidly at left-back and centre-back as Maldini, means the AC Milan bloke deserves a slot in any ultimate XI. Image Source: Lisimg
Perhaps an element of loyalty coming in here again. Don't get us wrong, Kaka could be a world-beater on his day, but only really had two AMAZING seasons. Image Source: Wash Times
CM) Steven Gerrard
Best English centre-midfielder ever. Image Source: Annamichaela
CM) Zinedine Zidane
Best centre-midfield player to grace the beautiful game. Glided around the green more convincingly than Mohammad Ali in a boxing ring. Image Source: Getty Images
LW) Lionel Messi
With a left-foot that's just slightly better than Riyad Mahrez, the Argentine can consider himself lucky to squeeze in. Image Source: Twitter
What a player the Brazilian striker was. But, to pick the ex-Real Madrid man over CR7 seems slightly off. Image Source: Twitter
RF) Wayne Rooney
Ay? Very odd choice. Again, Wazza Roo could be pretty special on his day. But, surely there are some others out there who impress slightly more? Rivaldo, Ronaldinho, to name just two. Image Source: Getty Images
