Records are meant to be broken. It is a famous saying, but whoever said it has perhaps never thought about records Worst Records No One Wants To Break.
5. Most Own Goals
An own goal is the bane of any defender’s existence, and the joy of everyone else’s. Liverpool’s Jamie Carragher was a personified own goal. The boyhood Everton fan scored seven against Liverpool in the Premier League, putting him joint-second on the all-time Premier League list behind Richard Dunne.
Everton’s Billy Balmer holds the record with 8 own goals in more than 300 matches; having scored only one goal for the side; a single penalty in 1899.
4. Worst Managerial Records
This might be a nightmare to any manager. Terry O’Connor with Wolves in 2012 had a 0 win in 13 games; scored a 0% winning percentage; it was worse with Paul Jewell in Derby where, in the 2007/08 season he managed 0 wins in 24 games.
3. Most Hated Players
It is the presence of these personalities that makes football such a riveting sport. These players are always making the headlines, and more often than not for the negative reasons. Players like Pepe, Diego Costa, and Cristiano Ronaldo have been making Headline in recent times, and its hard to feel motivated by breaking their records.
2. Conceding Most Goals
Let’s talk about Barcelona. We remember Barcelona’s loss to Bayern Munich 7-0: Champions league semi final biggest loss; a loss to AC Milan 4–0 in 1994: Champions league final biggest loss; Athletico Bilbao 12-1 Barcelona, back in the 1930–31 Season; and a 11-1 loss to Real Madrid as the Copa del Rey biggest Loss.
However, American Samoa’s goalkeeper, Nicky Salapu, set his own record on 11 April 2001 in a qualifying match for the 2002 FIFA World Cup. He conceded 31 goals in a single game.
1. Fastest/ Most Red Cards
In a Swansea vs Darlington game in 2000, Walter Boyd came in as a substitute. But before the kick could be taken, Boyd was involved in a scuffle. Referee Clive Wilkes gave the Swansea man his marching orders; since the play hadn’t been restarted, it was officially 0 seconds, when Boyd was sent off.
In England, Roy McDonough and Steve Walsh lead the race of most Red Cards with 13 reds each. In Spain, it is Xavier Aguado and Pablo Alfaro with 18 top tier reds each. But at the top comes French Football, with Cyril Rool earning 19 Ligue1 reds throughout his career!
