What next, Celtic? How 10 battered teams fared after heavy defeats

As Celtic aim to forget that their Camp Nou horror show ever happened, Greg Evans reels off some of the other sides who've suffered humbling humiliations. Heck, at least it wasn't 149-0...

1. Yugoslavia 9-0 Zaire (1974)

Often perceived as the darkest day in African football history, Zaire’s shambolic performance at the 1974 World Cup was personified by this thrashing from Yugoslavia. Heck, it even broke the scoreboard

Their tournament hadn’t started particularly disastrously, with a 2-0 loss against Scotland in a hard-fought opener, but their inexperience on the world stage was exploited in their second match.

Fingers were pointed at Zaire’s Yugoslavian coach Blagoje Vidinic, who had inexplicably dropped star striker Mayanga Maku and made bizarre substitutions throughout the game. The true source of the dismal display seems to have developed from the promise of bonuses, a problem that would blight African teams in future tournaments.

"We had the erroneous belief that we would returning from the World Cup as millionaires," defender Mwepu Ilunga told BBC Sport in 2002. "But we got back home without a penny in our pockets." 

Before the tournament, Zaire president Mobutu Sese Seko had bought each member of the squad a car – but things turned sour after the heavy loss. "He sent his presidential guards to threaten us," Ilunga continued. "They closed the hotel to all journalists and said that if we lost 4-0 to Brazil, none of us would be able to return home."

Incredibly, they only lost 3-0 and returned home.

2. Borussia M'gladbach 12-0 Borussia Dortmund (1978) 

On the final day of the 1977/78 Bundesliga season, Borussia Mönchengladbach had the chance to win the championship if they could beat Cologne’s +10 goal difference.

Astonishingly they managed to score 12 times, but Cologne won the title having scored five against St Pauli. For Dortmund, the repercussions were far more significant – Otto Rehhagel was immediately sacked, goalkeeper Peter Endrulat was sold and all of the players were fined between 2000 and 2500 Deutsche Mark.

Allegations of match-fixing were investigated and eventually thrown out, but the humiliation lingered and the scoreline is still a German record to this day.  

3. Hungary 10-1 El Salvador (1982)

At the 1982 World Cup in Spain, El Salvador were the undisputed weaklings – and their opening match couldn’t have been much more of a disaster.

However, the most memorable moment of the game came when their striker Luis Ramirez Zapata scored a consolation on 64 minutes and launched into fervent celebration. It became an iconic moment of the tournament, and El Salvador respectfully held their own against Belgium (0-1) and Argentina (0-2) in their remaining group games.

The match has become something of a legend in Salvadoran culture and in 2007 the country's FA marked the 20th anniversary of the result with a friendly against Hungary. This time the score finished a much more even 2-2.

4. Manchester United 9-0 Ipswich (1995) 

After three consecutive seasons in the top flight, Ipswich had continuously flirted with relegation, only avoiding the drop by a point the previous campaign. Their fate was eventual sealed in 1994/95, however, with this dismal display at Old Trafford contributing to the Tractor Boys' downfall.

Amazingly, the Suffolk side had beaten United 3-2 at Portman Road earlier in the season, but the then-champions were out for revenge in this game as Andy Cole bagged five of the nine goals in this record Premier League victory. Ipswich finished bottom of the league, while hapless goalkeeper Craig Forrest went on to concede seven more goals at Old Trafford in a West Ham shirt five years later.

5. Newcastle 8-0 Sheffield Wed (1999)

After seven games of the 1999/2000 campaign, neither of these sides had won and propped up the rest at the bottom of the table. Sheffield Wednesday, therefore, would have gone to St James' Park in the hope of getting off the mark against the team they finished one place above the season before.

But that was not to be. Newcastle were 4-0 up at the break thanks to Alan Shearer's first-half hat-trick, and added another four in the second half as the Geordie favourite took his personal tally to five.

The Owls would endure a lifeless season of struggle, and be relegated alongside Watford and Wimbledon. They recorded a 4-0 win over Leicester on the final day, but haven't been seen in the Premier League since.  



A young painter, indulging a vein of pleasantry, sketched a kind of conversation piece, representing a bear, an owl, http://www.michaelkorsoutletonlinest.com a monkey, and an ass; and Michael Kors handbags outlet online store to render it more striking, humorous, kate spade store online and moral, distinguished every figure by Kate Spade Bags some emblem of human life. Bruin michael kors watches was exhibited in the garb and attitude of an old, toothless, drunken soldier; the owl perched upon the handle of a coffee-pot, with spectacle on nose, seemed to contemplate a newspaper; and the ass, ornamented with a huge tie-wig (which, however, could not conceal his long ears), sat for his picture to the monkey, who appeared with the implements of painting. This whimsical group afforded some mirth, and met with general approbation, until some mischievous wag hinted that the whole �� was a lampoon upon the friends of the performer; an insinuation which was no sooner circulated than those very people who applauded it before began to be alarmed, and even to fancy themselves signified by the several figures of the piece.
Among Coach Outlet Store Online others, a worthy personage in years, who had served in the army with reputation, being incensed at the Supposed outrage, repaired to http://www.thebagsstyle.com the lodging of the painter, and new balance finding him at home, ��Hark ye, http://www.outletchristianlouboutin13.com Mr. Monkey,�� said he, ��I have Christian Louboutin Shoes Outlet a good mind to convince you, michael kors outlet online store sale us that though the bear has lost Moncler Coats his teeth, he retains his paws, Michael Kors handbags outlet cheap and that he is not so Moncler Outlet Store drunk but he can perceive your http://www.shopkatespadebags.com impertinence.�� ��Sblood! sir, that toothless jaw michael kors satchel bags outlets is a d �� ned scandalous louis vuitton libel �� but don��t yon imagine true religion brand jeans me so chopfallen as not to Kate Spade Outlet Online be able to chew the cud new balance factory outlet of resentment.�� Here he was interrupted gucci bag by the arrival of a learned Michael Kors bags on sale physician, who, advancing to the culprit cheap Michael Kors bags online with fury in his aspect, exclaimed, Michael Kors outlet sale ��Suppose the augmentation of the ass��s free run 2 ears should prove the diminution of Michael Kors store the baboon��s �� nay, seek not new balance outlet to prevaricate, for, by the beard Louis Vuitton of Aesculapius! there is not one louis vuitton outlet hair in this periwig that will Michael Kors outlet online not stand up in judgment to cheap Michael Kors watches convict thee of personal abuse. Do kate spade outlet but observe, captain, how this pitiful http://www.michaelkorshandbags-2014.com little fellow has copied the very michael kors hamilton satchel curls-the colour, indeed, is different, but Michael Kors outlet then the form and foretop are Michael Kors handbags outlet clearance quite similar.�� While he thus remonstrated michaelkors in a strain of vociferation, a cheap nba jerseys venerable senator entered, and waddling up michael kors rose gold watch to the delinquent, ��Jackanapes!�� cried he, michael kors hamiton ��I will now let thee see Louis vuitton outlet I can read something else than katespade.com a newspaper, and that without the Nike Shoes On Sale help of spectacles: here is your Louis Vuitton Sale own note of hand, sirrah, for wholesale michael kors money, which if I had not louis vuitton handbags advanced, you yourself would have resembled christian louboutin outlet online an owl, in not daring to true religion outlet online show your face by day, you Kate Spade ungrateful slanderous knave!��
In vain the astonished michael kors bags wholesale painter declared that he had no Michael Kors gold purse intention to give offence, or to http://www.themercyseller.com characterise particular persons: they affirmed the Cheap Moncler Jackets resemblance was too palpable to be kate spade outlet overlooked; they taxed him with insolence, wholesale nba jerseys malice, and ingratitude; and their clamours Michael Kors outlet purses being overheard by the public, the nba jerseys online sale captain was a bear, the doctor find cheap michael kors bag an ass, and the senator an Louis Vuitton Outlet owl, to his dying day.
Christian reader, http://www.louisvuitton-newlv.com I beseech thee, in the bowels http://www.michaelkorshandbagsoutlet-store.com of the Lord, remember this example michael kors outlet store online sale ��while thou art employed in the Michael Kors handbags wholesale perusal of the following sheets; and http://www.chevrecakes.com seek not to appropriate to thyself michaelkors that which equally belongs to five Louis Vuitton Outlet Store hundred different people. If thou shouldst Michael Kors outlet stores meet with a character that reflects cheap Michael Kors handbags sale thee in some ungracious particular, keep cheap Michael Kors handbags thy own counsel; consider that one wholesales michael kors bags online feature makes not a face, and kate spade bags that though thou art, perhaps, distinguished wholesale nba jerseys by a bottle nose, twenty of shopping michael kors watches thy neighbours may be in the Louis Vuitton Bags same predicament.��Of all kinds of satire, Michael Kors shoes online there is none so entertaining and http://www.shopmoncleroutlet.com universally improving, as that which is http://www.katespadeplaza.com introduced, as it were occasionally, in Louis Vuitton Bags the course of an interesting story, Coach Outlet Store which brings every incident home to LV outlet life, and by representing familiar scenes nike free run in an uncommon and amusing point michael kors shoulder bags of view, invests them with all cheap new balance shoes the graces of novelty, while nature High Heel Shoes is appealed to in every particular. barbour.com The reader gratifies his curiosity in authentic michael kors handbags pursuing the adventures of a person Michael Kors wallets in whose favour he is prepossessed; Michael Kors he espouses his cause, he sympathises Louis Vuitton Handbags outlet with him in his distress, his Louis Vuitton Outlet indignation is heated against the authors Cheap Moncler Jackets of his calamity: the humane passions cheap Michael Kors bags usa are inflamed; the contrast between dejected Kate Spade Handbags virtue and insulting vice appears with Christian Louboutin Outlet Store greater aggravation, and every impression having cheap nike shoes a double force on the imagination, Michael Kors purse outlet the memory retains the circumstance, and Michael Kors handbags sale the heart improves by the example. Cheap Louis Vuitton Bags The attention is not tired with Michael Kors store a bare catalogue of characters, but Cheap Louis Vuitton agreeably diverted with all the variety http://www.christainloubutinshoesstore.com of invention; and the vicissitudes of Nike Free 3.0 life appear in their peculiar circumstances, Coach Outlet Online opening an ample field for wit http://www.michaelkorshandbagswhole-sale.com and humour.
Romance, no doubt, owes its christian louboutin outlet origin to ignorance, vanity, and superstition. Christian Louboutin online store In the dark ages of the michael kors outlet online World, when a man had rendered http://www.michaelkorssatchelbagsoutlets.com himself famous for wisdom or valour, Michael Kors outlet clearance his family and adherents availed themselves http://www.truereligionjeanst.com of his superior qualities, magnified his Louis Vuitton Handbags virtues, and represented his character and Cheap Moncler Jackets person as sacred and supernatural. The nike air max vulgar easily swallowed the bait, implored Louis Vuitton Outlet Handbags his protection, and yielded the tribute michal kors purse outlet of homage and praise, even to Kate Spade Bags adoration; his exploits were handed down http://www.michaelkorsoutletonlinest.com to posterity with a thousand exaggerations; Michael Kors outlet online sale they were repeated as incitements to true religion factory outlet virtue; divine honours were paid, and Michael Kors clearance sale altars erected to his memory, for Christian Louboutin shoes the encouragement of those who attempted Louis Vuitton Outlet to imitate his example; and hence http://www.moncleroutletonlineinc.com arose the heathen mythology, which is Michael Kors Handbags no other than a collection of gucci purses extravagant romances. As learning advanced, and Michael Kors sunglasses genius received cultivation, these stories were gucci bags embellished with the graces of poetry, http://www.guccioutletpurse.com that they might the better recommend Michael Kors online outlet themselves to the attention; they were louis vuitton store sung in public, at festivals, for owner michael kors black Friday the instruction and delight of the http://www.chevrecakes.com audience; and rehearsed before battle, as true religion jeans incentives to deeds of glory. Thus Christian Louboutin Shoes tragedy and the epic muse were Kate Spade Bags born, and, in the progress of kate spade outlet online taste, arrived at perfection. It is Kate Spade Online Sale no wonder that the ancients could Louis Vuitton not relish a fable in prose, michael kors outlet after they had seen so many christian louboutin shoes remarkable events celebrated in verse by Michael Kors watches for women their best poets; we therefore find Louis Vuitton Outlet Store no romance among them during the kate spade bags era of their excellence, unless the nike free run 2 Cyropaedia of Xenophon may be so michael kor shoes outlet online.com called; and it was not till barbour factory outlet store arts and sciences began to revive High Heels after the irruption of the barbarians Louis Vuitton into Europe, that anything of this gucci handbags kind appeared. But when the minds gucci handbag of men were debauched by the Louis Vuitton imposition of priestcraft to the most cheap michael kors handbags hot sales absurd pitch of credulity, the authors Michael Kors bags wholesale of romance arose, and losing sight free run 2 of probability, filled their performances with http://www.ownermichaelkorsblackfriday.com the most monstrous hyperboles. If they Michael Kors watches for men could not equal the ancient poets new balance sale in point of genius. they were http://www.highheelshoesstore.com resolved to excel them in fiction, christian louboutin online and apply to the wonder, rather Moncler Coats than the judgment, of their readers. michael kors hamilton tote Accordingly, they brought necromancy to their michael kors handbags outlet store aid, and instead of supporting the http://www.myfashiontruereglion.com character of their heroes by dignity new balance shoes outlet of sentiment and practice, distinguished them Michael Kors outlet store by their bodily strength, activity, and cheap michael kors handbags extravagance of behaviour. Although nothing could Michael Kors handbags outlet sale be more ludicrous and unnatural than Michael Kors sunglasses the figures they drew, they did kate spade outlet not want patrons and admirers; and Michael Kors watch sale the world actually began to be cheap new balance infected with the spirit of knight-errantry, Michael Kors shoes outlet when Cervantes, by an inimitable piece Michael Kors green purse of ridicule, reformed the taste of true religion outlet mankind, representing chivalry in the right Louis Vuitton point of view, and converting romance barbour outlet to purposes far more useful and nike free run entertaining, by making it assume the Louis Vuitton Sunglasses sock, and point out the follies Moncler Outlet Online of ordinary life.
The same method has michael kors watches on sale been practised by other Spanish and Louis Vuitton Outlet French authors, and by none more Louis vuitton outlet successfully than by Monsieur Le Sage, Michael Kors outlet handbags who, in his Adventures of Gil michael kors outlet online sale store Blas, has described the knavery and Michael Kors sandals foibles of life, with infinite humour newbalance.com and sagacity. The following sheets I http://www.katespadestoreonline.com have modelled on his plan, taking http://www.christianlouboutinoutlet14.com me liberty, however, to differ from Kate Spade Outlet him in the execution, where I Nike Outlet thought his particular situations were uncommon, ture religion sale extravagant, or peculiar to the country Michael Kors purses in which the scene is laid. Louis Vuitton purses The disgraces of Gil Blas are, official true religion for the most part, such as christian louboutin outlet rather excite mirth than compassion; he michael kors outlet himself laughs at them; and his kate spade bags transitions from distress to happiness, or discount Michael Kors purses at least ease, are so sudden, michael kors outlet that neither the reader has time Michael Kors outlet stores to pity him, nor himself to Michael Kors outlet store be acquainted with affliction. This conduct, http://www.louisvuittonsunglassess.net in my opinion, not only deviates Christian Louboutin from probability, but prevents that generous Moncler Outlet Online indignation, which ought to animate the Louis Vuitton Handbags reader against the sordid and vicious http://www.truereligionoutletrst.com disposition of the world. I have cheap Michael Kors wallets attempted to represent modest merit struggling Moncler Outlet with every difficulty to which a Louis Vuitton Outlet friendless orphan is exposed, from his christian louboutin outlet own want of experience, as well truereligion.com as from the selfishness, envy, malice, kate spade new york and base indifference of mankind. To http://www.thebestcoachstore2013.com secure a favourable prepossession, I have michaelkors allowed him the advantages of birth Louis Vuitton and education, which in the series kate spade online sale of his misfortunes will, I hope, true religion outlet store engage the ingenuous more warmly in Louis Vuitton Outlet Online his behalf; and though I foresee, michael kors tote that some people will be offended Kate Spade New York at the mean scenes in which Kate Spade New York he is involved, I persuade myself Nike Free that the judicious will not only michael kors bags perceive the necessity of describing those http://www.cheaplouisvuitton-bagso.net situations to which he must of mk bags outlet course be confined, in his low Moncler Outlet Store estate, but also find entertainment in cheap Michael Kors purses viewing those parts of life, where Christian Louboutin Outlet the humours and passions are undisguised Michael Kors Black Friday Sale by affectation, ceremony, or education; and barbour outlet store the whimsical peculiarities of disposition appear Michael Kors handbags outlet stores as nature has implanted them. But cheap Michael Kors outlet I believe I need not trouble http://www.michaelkorsoutletonlinestoresaleus.com myself in vindicating a practice authorized Christian Louboutin shoes online by the best writers in this Nike LunarEclipse way, some of whom I have kate spade bags already named
