    We've only beaten six different teams - question for stattos

    So far *cough* we've only beaten six different teams in the league.

    What's the lowest number we've ever recorded?

    I checked a couple:

    1996/7 - We beat 11 (!)
    2005/6 - We beat 7
    I listen to bands that don't even exist yet.

      1997/98 - we beat five teams. Amazingly we did the double over Scunthorpe United, who missed out on a play-off spot by one point.

      I can't believe someone has the time/inclination to actually work this out !! Plus your theory applies to more games.......roughly we've beaten a third of the Premier League.....takes anorak off

      To be fair, this is the fewest number of league games we've played in a season for 103 years.

      Not surprised. We were even worse that season than 96/97. Surely the worst side in our history? Saved from relegation to the Conference only because Doncaster were basically fielding teams full of trialists and youth players.

      ...and Sunday League players who happened to live a few doors down from the "manager" - Hopeless Football League Teams 7: Doncaster Rovers, 1997-98

      Thorpe was just one of 45 players used that season, a high proportion of which tellingly never played League football anywhere other than their stint at Belle Vue. Two such players would arrive in October when fellow mid to late 90s basket cases Brighton came to town; a must win game if Rovers were to hold out any hope of… well, just if we were to hold any hope. Whoever picked the team rang the changes; out went goalkeeper Gary Ingham and two-goal top-scorer Prince Moncrieffe. In for their debuts came new signings David Smith and Rod Thornley. The latter came from North West Counties League Warrington Town, and if his rise was sizable it was nothing compared to that of goalkeeper Dave Smith, whose previous club was Bramhall, of the Stockport Sunday League. (Smith’s rise was of course in no way linked to his happening to live a few doors down from a certain M. Weaver. Not at all. No). The Brighton game would represent Smith and Thornley’s sole afternoon as professional footballers. Rovers lost 3-1, and were reported to the FA for fielding a weakened team.

      Which is why you are my favourite poster on NSC. Accurate and up to date Albion facts, unadorned, and succinctly put. Use that as your next strapline

      I love AZ's posts. So many ITK dicks on here, but he just posts FACT.

      Don’t forget their chairman too. Before the arson.

      Looking at that is a timely reminder that we're not the only club to have more or less come back from the dead! They've certainly had more than their fair share of problems too.
