If your team had a goal difference of -180, you might want to think about shoring up your defence. That’s exactly what England’s worst ever team has done. Longford AFC, who sit comfortably bottom of the Gloucestershire Northern Senior League Division Two, have lost all 19 of their games so far this season, and that -190 goal difference is one of the reasons why.
Things might be about to change though, as they have pulled off a bit of a transfer coup by signing Stuart Pearce.
Phsycho retired 14 years ago, and is now 53. But he is possibly England’s best ever left back and won 78 caps. Trust us, he will not make Longford any worse!
The bad news for Pearce is that apparently he will still have to pay his £5 per week subs. No special treatment at Longford apparently.
But will they let him take the penalties?
