    Iain O'Brien only infamous for using his crotch to defend a cricket ball.
    Nah you're good mate - on reflection you can't go around taking a dump in Mark Lawrenson's bag without being infamous

    A related nomination for Micky Gooding, for pissing in Emlyn Hughes tea when he was his manager at Wolves

    I just don't think spending more time playing up to the fans of your old team, than actually doing your job for your current team - and then justifying yourself by stating in an interview that your old team's fans "mean much more" to you than your current team's, is any way for a self respecting professional to conduct himself.

    Aye. It was pretty much the final straw before he left for you. In fairness, there were sections of the Wigan crowd that treated him unfairly, and he didn't have the best relationship with Jewell, by all accounts. But quite publicly belittling the consumers of your product isn't really acceptable behaviour from any public-ish figure.

    Will second Stan Collymore for publicly beating his then girlfriend & John Fashnu for disowning his own brother because Justin (RIP) happened to be gay.

    Thank you. Can't believe they hadn't been seconded already. A bigger pair of ****s is pretty hard to find.

    Surprised that nobody has seconded Balotelli. He's perhaps not the most awful person out of all those nominated, but the fact that when I hear his name I immediately think of his various indiscretions rather than his footballing prowess suggests to me that he is probably deserving of the infamous tag.

    Yeah Andy. He's infamous for taking bad commentary to the next level.
