Schalke 04 receive unlikely support from record holders

Everyone may already be aware of the poor form that Schalke 04 are on and how the Gelsenkirchen club are free-falling at a rapid pace that is hard to even imagine, let alone witness in the flesh.

However, the once Bundesliga giant can not seem to buy a win at this moment of time and it is not only the club or the fans that are desperate to see them pick up three points.

Tasmania Berlin claimed the ‘unwanted’ record of being the worst team in the Bundesliga in the 1965/66 season, however they could be about to lose it to Schalke; a record that the fans and club want to desperately keep.

During that season, Tasmania managed to acquire just eight points from a possible 102, scored 15 goals and conceded a huge 108. They managed to earn just one point away from home, whilst their two victories were in Berlin against Karlsruher and Borussia Neunkirchen; the two sides just above them in the table.

Despite that rather poor record, fans are desperate to see it remain as a part of history, with many heading to the club’s old stadium, Olimpico, to support Schalke against Hertha Berlin. Unfortunately, it was a losing effort as the Gelsenkirchen outfit went down 3-0. Casino players who have been on a losing run will know all-too-well how it feels, although many of them have managed to turn things around by checking out the best casino sites available to them.

That defeat meant Schalke would have a record of four draws and 10 defeats in their first 14 Bundesliga games this season, however it would see their winless run stretch to January 2020, when they managed to defeat Borussia Monchengladbach on January 17. That fixture was 30 matches ago, thus putting them within one consecutive defeat away from tying the record with Tasmania who holds it with 31 games without a win.

Hence why so many of the current record-holder’s fans were cheering on the former Bundesliga giants against Hertha Berlin.

Tasmania do have a whole host of other records, though, that look likely to keep them in the history books for many years to come.

The side hold the record for the worst attendance at a Bundesliga game with just 827 people turning up to the game against Borussia Monchengladbach in 1966. That was a huge drop considering 81,500 attended the first match at the Olimpico and 70,000 were at the second game.

Tasmania also hold the lowest number of points total in a season with 8, although the current system would have seen them finish with 10 whilst they still have the fewest win total with two – this could be taken from them, though.

Again, they were the only team in the history of the Bundesliga not to win a single away game, but Schalke could see this record become theirs this season.

They suffered 28 total defeats with 12 of those having happened at home, with 8 happening consecutively; a record matched by Hansa Rostock in 2004/05. The most defeats they have had in a row was 10, which Arminia Bielefeld share with them from their torrid time in 1999/00.

It would also be rather difficult for a side to achieve a worse goal difference than the 15 scored and 108 conceded but could happen.
