The C*nt List
The C*nt List
Welcome to Footy Accums official C*nt List! Below you will find a comprehensive list of all the football teams who have let our bets down in the past. Avoid adding all the following teams to your bets as they are the biggest frauds going and will always leave you fuming on a Saturday afternoon:
1. Las Palmas
Date Added: 06/02/17
Our £10-£1000 was onto Bet 7 and was accumulating cash very quickly. The seventh bet wasn’t an easy pick with it being a Monday night and only a handful of games to choose from. We opted to for Las Palmas to score against a struggling Granada side. It looked a banker, Granada had kept just one clean sheet at home all season whilst Las Palmas had been scoring goals for fun and with the likes of Kevin-Prince Boateng and Jese in the squad they looked certs to score. Jese was making his debut for the club having signed on loan from PSG in an attempt to get his dwindling career back on track. He was presented with a perfect opportunity to score on his debut and make us and all our followers happy when he stole in at the back post and the ball found him in acres of space. All he had to do was tap it in, but instead he decided to channel his inner Conor Sammon and miss from little more than 4 yards out. No wonder he’s gone from playing at Real Madrid to Las Palmas!

2. Sheffield United
Date Added: 21/01/17 v Gillingham (H)
We stopped backing Sheffield United for a long time, given their chequered history in our bets. However, the Blades were on a roll, winning 10 out of 11 at Bramall Lane and sitting top of League One so we thought it was time to give them another chance. But they decided f*ck us over once more, forgetting how to defend and allowing a Gillingham team who had just lost to lowly Oldham to earn a 2-2 draw. The Blades will forever be bottlers in our eyes, never again!
Date Added: 21/01/17 v Newport County (H)
After searching for a banker bet for our £10-£1000 challenge we settled on backing Newport NOT to keep a clean sheet away at Barnet. This surely had to come in with Newport shipping goals for fun and Barnet having the lethal John Akinde at their disposal. But this was the day that Barnet decided to forget their shooting boots, wasting a ridiculous amount of chances. One of their attempts was so bad that the ball ended up in the car park behind the stand rather than in the onion bag. To see just how sh*t Barnet were in front of goal in this game, see below:
4. Derby County
Date Added: 31/12/16 v Wigan Athletic (H)
Our £10-£1000 challenge was on a roll, we had won 22 bets in a row and had earned over £200 profit. Then came bet 23. After searching for a banker we decided on backing Derby County to score against lowly Wigan Athletic. Everything pointed to this one being a winner, the Ram’s had scored in five consecutive home matches whilst Wigan had just shipped three against a frankly woeful Rotherham United side. But we forgot two key things.
A. Harry Redknapp’s missus is a better striker than Darren Bent
B. Derby are bottlers.
They ended up drawing the game 0-0 and spoiled everyones New Year.
