    They did indeed, sir, which is why I specifically stated that was three consecutive league games, rather than competitve games.

    Actually, in that FA Cup Final Chelsea hit the woodwork five times in the first half. Wonder if that's anywhere near a record.

        Rangers got 20 in two games in 1934. 14-2 at home to Blairgowrie in the cup (Jimmy Fleming scored 9), followed up with 6-0 against Dundee in the league.

          ...as I pointed out upthread. (Apart from the Community Shield bit, which I forgot.)

            Arbroath were professional in 1885??!! (and 1885 is pre-league so out of Rogin's range for this question!)

              I always like the side-story to that Arbroath-Bon Accord game:

              On the same day, 18 miles (29 kilometres) away in Dundee, Dundee Harp were also playing in the first round of the Scottish Cup against Aberdeen Rovers. Dundee Harp beat Aberdeen Rovers 35-0. The referee noted 37 goals, but Harp's secretary suggested a miscount must have occurred as he had recorded only 35. The match official, acknowledging it was difficult for him to keep accurate details during such a deluge of goals, accepted the lower tally and wired the official score of 35-0 to the Scottish Football Association headquarters.

                  The Scottish Cup was (and remains) Scotland's top-level tournament, regardless of the time of the game concerned or of Arbroath's own status. The two (non-adulterated) performances that elicited higher scores were not:

                  "In December 2000 Romanian side Carpati Mirsa beat Avintul Dirlos 410 but the result was not ratified as it was not in a professional competition, so Arbroath maintained their record. A similar situation arose in May 2016, when Pelileo Sporting Club beat Indi Native 441 in an Ecuadorian third division match." (Wikipedia)

                  (If Tooting & Mitcham won 41-0 in the FA Cup 3rd round, it would hardly be dismissed as a result owing to the club being semi-professional, would it?)

                    I didn't bring up professionalism. The Ecudorian third division, imo, is a higher level with a much higher qualification requirement than the the early rounds of the 19th century Scottish Cup. By all account Bon Accord were a cricket club who fancied a crack at it. Granted it's a British record. And equalled in Estonia in 2015, in a national competition where the winners qualified for the Europa League.

                    Adema's Madagascar nonsense was clearly a 'fix' but I can't find any record of it being expunged.

                      I don't think it has been, no, but its recognition nonetheless seems to be taken seriously by only a few sources - one of which is (rather annoyingly) Guinness. (Like you, I don't see how it can be included in the records, but there we are.)

                      Professionalism? Well, you kind of mentioned it in your last post! Sure, I used it upthread as a parameter, otherwise we're then looking to include any old pub league score - and I'll bet there have been a goodly number that dwarf Arbroath's or any of the others. Here's one example from 2010 (apologies for source):

                      https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...0-victory.html

                      If you'd rather, we can include all these but I'm not sure I see the point.

                        Professionalism is always a bit nebulous anyway.... cup competitions will include pros, semis-pros and amateurs, many leagues do too. I wouldn't count any old pub league, but the Ecuadorian example is surely a 'senior' national level game though, even if it's not professional. Excluding it smacks of xenophobia. And the Estonian Cup is unquestionably at the same level of seniority/professionalism as the Scottish Cup (which of course only equals the "record")

                          Yes. maybe 'senior' is the way to go with this.

                          I'll admit that I'd forgotten that Estonian Cup score - despite its being only four years ago. (Shame they couldn't squeeze another in and claim the overall record.)
