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?
