There is no more frightening sight for a goalkeeper than Carlton Cole bearing down on you. And Burnley goalkeeper Lee Grant experienced just this in an FA Cup 5th Round tie in February 2011. Cole broke the Burnley offside trap and raced towards the goal, savvily navigating his way past Grant before slotting confidently into the empty net. Textbook. West Ham went on to win 5-1 only to be unceremoniously dumped out by Stoke in the next round.
