Bloody hell. That's a goal every 0.6mins!! Makes you wonder if there was even another team on the pitch?

In his younger days, Jimmy Hill was a steward at The Shay football ground.

Which was the same day as Dundee Harp beat a side 35-0, and as a reporter rushed to tell folk about the record score line he was in disbelief that it had already been bettered by another game 20 miles away

Not even close :) From ShaymenOnline (a reputable source!!):

Today's opponents Rochdale hail from what some football historians consider to be the earliest established hotbed of football in the world, with records of "foot-ball" clubs from across Lancashire throughout the 1840s, including in Rochdale itself. But the oldest club? Of course it depends what you mean by that. There was a club based in Edinburgh in the early 1800s that is known from surviving rules to have played an early form of football long before Sheffield or Notts County. Cambridge University can lay claim to the be the earliest club still in existence, but Sheffield FC (1857) is the oldest club not tied to a works or a school. Notts County (also 1857) is the oldest Football League club. Civil Service FC can lay claim to be the only one of the FA's 18 founding members (1863) still to exist.

Edit to add - a quick check of Wikipedia suggests there's a new claim for the crown of oldest club - Guy's Hospital in 1843.

Was listening to a radio quiz a few weeks ago and the answer was Nottingham Forest (oldest club in the football league) . Didn't sound right to me however you tried to word the question

Glad you wasn't  in our zoom quiz, it was bad enough with just 1 person not accepting the answer

Man U get a quick mention as well

 

when we are slandered, we answer kindly. We have become the scum of the earth, the garbage of the world—right up to this moment.

That could be open to interpretation. What you see as scum may be different to what someone else see as scum. To a Celtic supporter maybe Rangers are considered to be "scum".

I do not dispute that locally we all consider "scum" to mean Man Utd, but pub quiz specialists may dispute the "fact".:)
