Jon Walters (Stoke) v Chelsea: The worst performance ever? (Ft. Woodgate & Palermo)

“Jon’s fine, We look after people at the football club. It wasn’t our day today, it was Chelsea’s day.” – Tony Pulis.

The bare facts make grim reading for Jon Walters: Own goal 45+ 1. Own goal 63. Missed penalty 90.

In the official Fantasy Premier League game, Walters ended the match with minus four points, pretty much an unheard of total for a midfielder.

It was a far cry from when Walters scored a fine brace against Liverpool in a 3-1 win on Boxing Day that had many hailing the Republic of Ireland attacker.

Many have asked in the aftermath of Chelsea’s 4-0 victory at the Britannia, whether it was the worst individual performance in Premier League history.

On 101gg, we like to take a little more global attitude to these debates, so Walters’ 2 own goals and a penalty miss can only be compared to two of the most infamous of all displays.

1. Jonathan Woodgate’s Real Madrid debut. Scored an own goal and was sent off.

2. Martin Palermo missing three (3!) penalties in one game for Argentina against Colombia.

Have we missed any? Did Jon Walters produce the worst display ever? Surely, he should be given credit for stepping up to take a late penalty!
