Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas said his players deserved to feel "ashamed" after Sunday's 6-0 thrashing by Manchester City.
It was Spurs' heaviest league defeat since December 1996 - they simply had no answer for their opponents.
But it wasn't the first time a team have been left feeling ashamed after a 90-minute football match.
The five thrashings below might not be the biggest of the Premier League era, but we believe they are the most shameful.
5. Tottenham 9-1 Wigan Athletic | November 2009
At half-time, Tottenham were 1-0 up against Wigan Athletic. By full-time they had conceded one, but scored another eight goals in return, to complete a 9-1 thrashing of the humiliated Latics.
The Wigan players were so embarrassed that they offered to refund all 400 supporters who had made the trip down to White Hart Lane on that fateful November afternoon in 2009.
Jermain Defoe scored five in the rout.
4. Newcastle United 5-0 Manchester United | October 1996
Newcastle United recorded one of their most famous victories in October 1996, when they thrashed Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United side 5-0 at St James' Park.
The Magpies scored some wonderful goals that afternoon; but none of them were more memorable than Phillipe Albert's cheeky chip over the stranded Peter Schmeichel from outside the box, which rubbed salt into the Red Devils' wounds.
3. Middlesbrough 8-1 Manchester City | May 2008
Okay, so this wasn't the star-studded Manchester City side of the present day, but the Citizens still had the likes of Stephen Ireland, Martin Petrov, Elano and Didi Hamann when they were thrashed 8-1 by, of all teams, Middlesbrough in May 2008.
Premier League flop Afonso Alves grabbed a hat-trick against Sven-Goran Eriksson's side, who were already on the beach.
2. Manchester United 8-2 Arsenal | August 2011
The lowest point of Arsene Wenger's Arsenal tenure came in August 2011, when his side were beaten 8-2 by rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford.
The Gunners turned up with a depleted side - which did, however, include Robin van Persie and Theo Walcott - and were made to pay by Wayne Rooney, who helped himself to a hat-trick, and co.
Sir Alex Ferguson admitted that he felt sorry for Wenger that afternoon - and even reached the point where he hopes the goals would stop going in to spare the Frenchman from further embarrassment.
1. Manchester United 1-6 Manchester City | October 2011
Just two months after thrashing Arsenal, Manchester United were thrashed themselves at Old Trafford - 6-1 by local rivals Manchester City.
City had already taken a 3-0 lead by the time Darren Fletcher scored to give United some hope. However, Roberto Mancini's men scored three goals in quick succession during the closing stages of the Manchester derby to compound the Red Devils' misery.
This was a result which sent shockwaves through the football world. A power-shift appeared to have taken place.
