    Football League of shame

    Post by RRC on Thu 08 Feb 2018, 9:14 pm

    The Rams have the 4th best disciplinary record in the Football League over the last
    15 seasons with one sending off every 17.5 games. Our most recent sending off
    came with Bradley Johnson's two yellow cards at Elland Road in January 2017.

    Only Crewe Alexandra (21.1), Liverpool (18) and Exeter (17.7) have done better.

    No prizes for guessing the club with the worst record (one every 8.5 games) for
    playing dirty. The reputation of their players and fans is famed far beyond their lair.

    No, it's not Leeds, though the dirties are working on it with one every 5.0 matches
    so far this season.

    Also in the red zone are Luton (8.6), Accrington Stanley and Huddersfield
    Town (both 8.8), and MK Dons (9.0).

    So far this season, Chesterfield are the worst offenders with one every 4.4 games.

    I wonder where the red dogs feature in that list.
