    Invincibles - has a team ever gone a whole season unbeaten and not won their league?

    Will happen tomorrow if Manchester C wimmin win or draw at Arsenal.

    Liverpool have lost once in the League and are unlikely to be champions.

    Yes, most notably Benfica, Perugia and galatasaray

    "Perugia went undefeated all season in 1978-79 and still finished second in Serie A to Milan," writes Dan Seppings, among myriad others. "They drew 19 games out of 30 that season. The conclusion? Serie A was very boring for a number of years." What they'd give for excitement like that now, though, eh?

    This dubious achievement can also be claimed by four other teams in major European leagues. In 1951 Spartak Sofia finished a point behind CDNV Sofia, despite winning 14 and drawing eight of their 22-game programme. Benfica were the next unfortunates, losing out on goal difference to Porto in 1977-78. After Perugia's antics of 1978-79 in Italy Galatasaray were next to experience this singular type of frustration, trailing Besiktas on goal difference in 1985-86 after a 36-game unbeaten streak. And only last year Red Star Belgrade finished a whopping five points behind their rivals Partizan Belgrade after 33 games of mellow fruitlessness.

    Hearts were well on the way to it, having the league wrapped up by September.

    Oh, wait................

    If they hadn’t lost that game they’d have surpassed the Gunners achievement in terms of racking up wins undefeated and winning the league. Finest ever in the modern era, probably any era. Same goes for City.
    That accolade remains with the Arsenal right now though and rightly so. Invincibility doesn’t come easy.

    I'm waiting for the day a team goes unbeaten by drawing every game and get relegated

    Hearts are desperate to be famous.

    Sounds like a target for them to aim for.

    Probably us given the number of draws we’ve had over the past few years.
