# 6 – Dimitar Berbatov – Keep calm and pass me the ball

This one is fairly recent. On December 26, 2012, Fulham’s Dimitar Berbatov opened the scoring for his team against Southampton and as soon as he did, he displayed the famed message – “Keep calm and pass me the ball”.

Keep calm and pass HIM the ball!

The match ended 1 – 1 and Berbatov couldn’t score again despite his teammates passing him the ball.

# 5 – James Beattie – Obvious!

In 2003, James Beattie was playing for Southampton and he was one of their leading players. Beattie wanted an England call up and the Three Lions were having problems in their attacking department.

Obvious – Overconfident?

So, Beattie thought that he was the obvious choice and went on to display the message “Obvious” after scoring a goal against Middlesbrough. The then England Manager Sven Goran Eriksson called up Beattie but he didn’t deliver on what he promised. Beattie till date has 5 England appearances and no goals to his name.
