With Queens Park Rangers languishing at the bottom of the table, and Tony Fernandes' dreams of world domination currently at a stand still, the question that has been posed is: "Is this the worst start to a Premier League season, ever?"
Judging by the plethora of talent in the R's squad earning just four points, with no wins, and only a splattering of draws, the obvious answer is yes. Rangers really are up a certain creek, and Mark Hughes seems to have lost his paddle.
Already a third of a way through the season, Rangers could well be in trouble if things don't turn around, and fast. But what other poor EPL starts to a season have there been since the league's inception in 1992?
And do any of them compare to the not-so-Super Hoops?
Here are 15 that could well challenge QPR for that unwanted record. And some of their final league positions could even help Mark Hughes sleep a little easier in his bed.
