"Bayern Munich would not have been relegated in 2013/14 even if every shot on Neuer's goal went in"

I think this is true...

There wasn't a higher attendance at Wembley than the 1988 Sherpa Van Trophy final between that game and the stadium being knocked down.

Someone may be able to verify that or prove it wrong.

You can get relegated from the Premier League (only works if you are Indian and sell chicken for a living).

Paul Andrew Stewart (born 7 October 1964) is an English former professional footballer who played top division football for Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and Burnley and was capped three times at senior level for England in the early 1990s, also winning the FA Cup with Tottenham Hotspur. Unbelievable but true!

Jimmy Adamson was never given a full England cap but Wilcox, Stewart and Ripley did. Unbelievable but true!

The fastest red card in history was for Lee Todd after 2 seconds. He was sent off for foul language after exclaiming " F*** me that was loud" straight after the referee had blown, to kick the game off.

Burnley never topped the Div 1 table till they won their last game in 1960.
Burnley went 30 games undefeated in one season to win it in 1920/1
