The Worst Premiership Team Ever

Kev the MackemContributor ISeptember 7, 2016

While listening to Talksport on the radio this morning (better known as Talksh*te), one of the subjects up for discussion was the worst Premiership team of all-time.


Eventually, the team chosen was:



GK: Massimo Taibi (Manchester United)


DF: Titus Bramble (Ipswich/Newcastle United/Wigan Athletic)


DF: Jean-Alain Boumsong (Newcastle United)


DF: Darren Peacock (QPR/Newcastle United/Blackburn Rovers)


DF: Abel Xavier (Everton/Middlesbrough)


MF: Eric Djemba-Djemba (Manchester United/Aston Villa)


MF: Luke Chadwick (Manchester United)


MF: Carlton Palmer (Sheffield Wednesday/Leeds United/Southampton)


FW: Lee Dong-Gook (Middlesbrough)


FW: Thomas Brolin (Leeds United/Crystal Palace)


FW: Diego Forlan (Manchester United)



Now, first of all, don’t shoot the messenger! 


Before the resident Geordies go off on one about all the ex-mags in the lineup, I would say I am just as amazed that no players from my team, Sunderland (the 19-point team, or the 15-point one), made the grade.


I am sure we can all come up with our own worst team, but who would manage it?


Contenders could be Mick McCarthy (15/19 points), Howard Wilkinson (19 points), or maybe Billy Davis. Perhaps Tony Pulis as one for the future?

What do you think?

Where can I comment?
