From Quiz Blame It On Their Reign

Answer: Derby County

Jewell bought 33-year-old Robbie Savage, who was disliked by many Derby fans due to a dive that won a penalty for Leicester against them, gave him a two-year contract and installed him as captain.

Derby finished the season with just 11 points. To add insult to injury, a sex tape featuring Jewell made its way into the press. He resigned in 2008, with Derby 18th in the Championship. Jewell later called 2008 the 'worst year of my life', and said that David Moyes had warned him against taking the job.
