Its awards time for the most incompetent teams in the Premier League, from those who cant take throw-ins to others who revel in needless yellow cards
Welcome to the Guardians fifth annual index of ineptitude, a catalogue of calamity, a prospectus of the piss-poor.
As each season draws to a close, the best moments, players and teams of the year are all charted, celebrated and cheered. Which means that what comprises most of the rest of the Premier League experience is missed.
So here is a (not always serious) commemoration of cackhandedness: heres where to cheer goalkeepers who help the opposition, those who cant score from 12 yards, players given cards for removing their shirts, and professionals who cant even throw the ball to a teammate. Lets face it, those moments are just as entertaining as the 30-yard screamers.
Optas statisticians have provided the raw data, weve interpreted them and then handed out points in, if were honest, a more arbitrary than scientific fashion. Still, what emerges is the glorious throbbing vein of inadequacy, incapability and incompetence that runs right through the Premier League and it deserves to be celebrated long and loud.
