But aren’t pretty much all records broken eventually ?
 

In theory yes.

But it took 116 years for our FA Cup Final score just to be matched.  Still remains unbeaten, now standing at 118 years.

 

 

EDIT:
I'd also add, it must surely be more likely that some team or other could be worse than that over a single one off game.  Being worse than us over a full 38 game season, week in, week out, would be more unlikely, perhaps?

Most likely it will eventually be beaten because of a points deduction     Sadly

history tells us that that will not necessarily be true.  it has happened and we still hold the record

Not necessarily. The rules have been changed after that game specifically to stop things like that happening again. 

if I remember correctly, didn’t our goalkeeper get injured with no substitutions or something?

Watford lost by that margin cos they were a bit mediocre with a relatively easy (some would say forest-esque) run to the final, coming up against a ridiculously clinical Man City. 

normally, the two teams that make it all the way to the final should be relatively evenly matched. You’d need something to happen like a player sent off in the first 10 minutes to create a situation like ours again.

I think we had 3 goalies play that day, 2 outfield players.  The main one was already injured but refused to give way.  Pretty much caused our own downfall

And Bloomer missed the game through injury.

Defo had a hand in it. Puppet master from afar.

Keogh did often have the appearance of a man who had just experienced the disorientating effects of time travel.

So maybe he can't be absolved from blame for the 1903 debacle just yet.
