Fulham have conceded 29 goals off individual errors this season. Here’s a look at all of them.

Everyone knows Fulham have the worst defence in the Premier League. They’ve conceded 72 goals in 32 games and have let in at least two goals in their last 12 league matches. But the true extent of their awfulness hasn’t been investigated in-depth.

After inspiration from football.london reporter Ryan O’Donovan, here is a comprehensive list of all the goals the Whites have conceded through glaring, individual errors this season.

It isn’t pretty — the numbers work out to 29 goals conceded through inexplicable defensive lapses. In addition, it must be noted that these are subjective tallies and all are invited to make their own list. The errors listed were limited to the most egregious switch-offs, and in a season filled with a plethora of mistakes, it was no easy feat to compile the final count.
