Plenty of people will tell you football isn't all about scoring goals, and that is certainly true for some players.

John Obi Mikel is one of those, he grabbed his first goal in English football after seven years of trying yesterday for Chelsea against Fulham.

It was one of those 'I was there moments' for Chelsea fans at Stamford Bridge.

The Nigerian isn't the only one though and here we take a look at some players who have been just as goal-shy down the years.

Feel free to comment if you feel that I've missed anyone out of this top five list.
