[VIDEO PICK] Nottingham Forest's miserable season was summed up by American Robbie Findley's miss in its 4-0 loss at Leicester City on Tuesday. The ball came to him two yards out with an open goal in front of him and he managed to sky the ball over the goal.

The flub left Findley in contention for the miss of the season and the defeat knocked Forest out of the FA Cup. The former European Cup winners are also in the relegation zone of England's second level ...

    Typical Findley, what else would one expect when it comes to this guy?? I have said it many times before that he has great speed but just cannot finish, he could not score to save his life even on an open net. Amazing that bob Bradley would play this guy while keeping Hercules Gomez on the bench.

    Yes, I agree that this is miss of the season so far. However whoever wrote the article needs to check some facts; this game was an FA Cup replay and has no influence on league positions. The loss to Southampton at the weekend did that!

    This was NOT the great "miss of the year". Seen many worse. He was not waiting for the ball and it was not on the ground. Findley jumped in the air and was turned slightly trying to flick it back into the net with others coming toward him. Its a natural tendency to hit it up.

    It would be pretty funny if someone was to put together a compendium of Findley's misses during his career, it would be quite the addition to anybody's collection of soccer gaffes.
