Derby County’s record low points total from the shambolic 07/08 season is unlikely to be beaten.

The club was in complete disarray for the entire nine months, demonstrating a complete lack of preparation for the season as they served as the division’s whipping boys every week.

The Rams won just one league game all season as the name of their stadium, Pride Park, became more ironic with every passing month.

Accumulating 11 points, it was a Premier League record and is unlikely to be matched or beaten. Take a look at the side who lined up in their final Premier League game (a 4-0 home reverse to Reading in May 2008) and see where they are now.

Goalkeeper: Roy Carroll

Roy Carroll probably couldn’t be blamed if he still had post-traumatic visions of Derby’s nightmarish season of 07/08. The wretched campaign was enough to scar any goalkeeper such was the sheer volume of goals plundered past them on a weekly basis. Carroll remained with the club for their follow-up Championship season, but left for Norwegian outfit Odense BK at the end of the season.

His European travels continued with stints at OFI and Olympiakos before signing for Notts County in 2014.

At 38 years old, he is currently on the books of Irish side Linfield and was part of Northern Ireland’s Euro 2016 squad.

Right-back: Tyrone Mears

Tyrone Mears signed for the club initially on loan after finding opportunities limited at West Ham, before penning a three-year deal in July 2007. Midway through Derby’s disastrous campaign, he was dealt an injury blow, sustaining a stress fracture which ruled him out for three months.

Following relegation, he drew the ire of Derby boss Paul Jewell by flying to France to undergo a trial with Olympique Marseille without permission. After a huge falling-out with the Rams, Mears ended up signing for the French club on loan but only made four appearances.

After spells at Burnley and Bolton, the 33-year-old former Jamaica international is now on the books of Seattle Sounders.

Centre-back: Darren Moore

Another former Jamaican international, Darren Moore couldn’t have looked more out of his depth if he had tried during his brief stint in the top-flight with Derby. The former Bradford and West Brom centre-half had served the club well during their promotion surge, but at 33 his legs were slowing and he was unable to keep with the quick and nimble strikers of the top-flight.

He was let go at the end of a traumatic season, spending the remaining four years of his career at Barnsley and Burton Albion. He spent a while with Wellington Amateurs but returned to old club West Brom, where he took up the post of youth coach.

Centre-back: Lewis Nyatanga

A graduate of the Derby youth system, Lewis Nyatanga was tipped for big things when he broke. Following a succession of loan spells, he returned to Derby towards the end of the 07/08 season. The damage had already been done, with Derby hurtling back into the second division at breakneck speed.

He signed for Bristol City in 2009, but is now on the books of Barnsley.

Left-back: Eddie Lewis

Signed in the summer of 2007 from Leeds United, Eddie Lewis proved to be an unmitigated disaster. He made no impact at Pride Park and his return of zero goals in 24 games was pitiful.

He was sent back to America via LA Galaxy at the end of the season, where he saw out the remaining two years of his career.

Right-wing: Mile Sterjovski

Mile Sterjovski was one of several who were drafted in by Paul Jewell in January 2008 in a bid to steady a sinking ship. The Australian proved ineffective however, and found himself out of the side the following season.

A return to Australia beckoned in 2009, with Perth Glory swooping for his signature. A brief stint in China with Dalian Yifang FC followed before Sterjovski retired in his homeland with Central Coast Mariners.

Centre-midfield: Robbie Savage

Robbie Savage’s time at Derby County is probably most notable for the angry reaction he prompted from his team-mates by his decision to report to training in a new £160,000 Mercedes with his club remaining rooted to the bottom of the table.

Savage endured problems with his team-mates and boss on a regular basis during their brief time together in the Premier League. However, the Welshman outlasted them all and spent the remaining three years of his career at the club, proving himself to be an important player in the Championship.

He is now a familiar face in the media, acting as a pundit for BBC and as a presenter for 606 on BBC Radio 5 Live.

Centre-midfield: David Jones

David Jones had signed for Derby initially on loan during their promotion surge, before penning a permanent deal at the end of the season. He left for Wolves at the end of the season, before signing for Wigan in 2011. He then spent three seasons at Burnley after penning a deal with them in 2013, before making the switch to Sheffield Wednesday this summer.

Left-wing: Hossam Ghaly

A pariah at Spurs after ripping off his jersey and chucking it at the turf after being substituted, Hossam Ghaly probably wasn’t the type of character needed to aid a relegation battle. Derby provided the Egyptian with his escape clause, offering him a loan route form White Hart Lane in January 2008.

He made just 15 appearances for the club, barely imposing himself in any of the games. He has spent the last seven years bouncing between Egyptian clubs and is currently in his third spell with hometown club Al Ahly SC.

Centre-forward: Emanuel Villa

A £2 million signing from Mexican club UAG in January 2008, Emanuel Villa was charged with reigniting Derby’s faltering survival bid. The striker ended up scoring a few goals, but not even Lionel Messi could have cancelled out the porous Derby backline.

He spent a season with the club in the Championship before returning to Mexico via Cruz Azul. At 34 years old, the Argentinian is now on the books of Mexican outfit Queretaro FC.

Centre-forward: Kenny Miller

Kenny Miller was the only person to score a match-winning goal for Derby in the entirety of the 07/08 season, his long-range effort against Newcastle in September granting them their only victory of a sorry season.

At 36 years old, he is still banging goals in - now in his third spell with Rangers in the Scottish Premier League. Since leaving Derby in 2008, he has also played with Bursaspor, Cardiff City and Vancouver Whitecaps FC.
