The highest-scoring team ever would’ve won you half price pizza all season. Unbelievable!
There are few things better than pizza and football and that’s why we’re bringing back Score Twice Half Price! Whether your team is fighting off relegation, pushing for the title, or busy nicking a surprise victory against the league’s high flyers, you could be enjoying 50% off pizza!
I wonder what Kammy would make of that…
To celebrate this offer, we’ve picked out some of the most ridiculous stats from the world of football. Be sure to bring these up with your mates when you’re enjoying half price pizza later!
1. The Worst Season Ever – AFC Aldermaston in 2010.
Between May 2009 and April 2010, AFC Aldermaston – known as the Atom Men due to their ground’s proximity to the nearby Atomic Weapons Research Facility – failed to earn a single point from 40 forlorn fixtures. Unable to pay players due to financial issues, the desperate side lost every match they played that season, conceding more than 150 goals in the process. The woeful run finally ended when they scraped a 1-1 draw with Warminster Town.
2. The Longest Premier League Goal Drought – Danny Simpson (207 Games)
Current Leicester City defender Danny Simpson owns the unwelcome record of most appearances in the Premier League without scoring a single goal, having played in 207 games so far without breaking his duck! Mind you, he does have a Premier League winners medal to his name, which is more than can be said for some of the world’s best players who have graced the Premier League…
Sorry LFC fans.
3. The Farthest Away Trip of Them All – Zenit St Petersburg vs. SKA-Khabarovsk (10,906 miles)
The big away day against your local rivals is often the first fixture fans look for at the beginning the season. But the biggest away day, in terms of literal miles, comes in the Russian Premier League. A one-way trip for away fans spans 5,453 miles by road or a 10 hr 15-minute flight that would cost upwards of £2,000 each way, making this the ultimate test of each club’s fan credentials!
4. Most Goals Scored in a Season (England) – Peterborough United, 134 goals, 1960-61
For our final titbit of football trivia, we are focusing on the team that would’ve delivered more half priced pizza than any other, the 1960-61 Peterborough United side that netted an incredible 134 league goals in a league-winning season. They averaged enough goals to supply their fans with 50% off pizza in every single match that season, a feat not even the greatest sides of the modern era can compete with.
