What about John Terry! All his life he will be remembered for his slip & miss! He'll have to win the Champions league or World Cup to get out of it! The way he sometimes avoids playing for England (v Croatia,etc) though makes the latter impossible!
I'm sure that when he realises that failure has brought him a million bedroom house and sports cars galore, not to mention the barrow fulls of cash and fans thinking he's a god.........I'm sure he won't notice his dissapoinment quite as much!!!!
