With the dark winter days now firmly behind us, the 2013/14 football season is heading into the home straight with many exciting finals to be played, a plethora of titles and individual awards to be won and the dreaded painful pangs of relegation to be felt by those unlucky few.

What a season it has been so far. Although the title races in France, Italy and Germany have been disappointingly one-sided, there has been shortage of excitement and surprise elsewhere - not least in the Premier League, of course.

So, with just about two months of the fun remaining, we thought we would take a look at 10 of the things that have shocked us most so far during the current campaign. By this we don't mean results per se, more events, players and general themes...

Without further ado, click above or below to get going and don't forget to leave us your own thoughts and opinions in the comment box provided below.

What do you make of our selections? Which of these things have surprised you the most this season?
