Manchester United's £59.7 million man Angel di Maria summed up his side's struggles against League Two minnows Cambridge United last night, with a shot so woeful he managed to clear the main stand behind the goal at the Abbey Stadium.
Di Maria sized up a strike around 30 yards from goal after the ball took a kind bounce at his feet in the first half of the FA Cup fourth-round tie, but could only send the pink ball clear out of the stadium with an effort so poor it would result in some serious stick on a Sunday afternoon, let alone the United dressing room.
Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal likely wasn't amused though, after a hugely disappointing afternoon which saw his expensive-assembled squad fail to break down a plucky Cambridge side assembled without a single transfer fee changing hands.
Oh dear Di Maria!
Now in Di Maria's defence he's used to playing in bigger stadiums which would save the embarrassment of a shot leaving the stadium altogether, but it's an excuse that just won't wash when you consider we're talking about the most expensive man in British football history.
The 26-year-old earns in the region of £280,000-a-week to do the business for the Red Devils, which means he simply has to be better in the final third to justify that extraordinary salary.
U's have a field day with dreadful strike
Cambridge United's own Twitter account did a wonderfully-deadpan job of ridiculing that effort, simply stating the facts in a social media post which deserved more attention during their live text commentary.
U's fans also chimed in with a verse of: 'what a waste of money' soon after, on the evidence of a video nasty alone for the Argentine superstar it is very difficult to disagree.
