Offaly v Kerry shouldn't be on that list. Offaly were making incremental progress each year. Not in the same league as the others you have there. Wimbledon v Liverpool is another actually. Wimbledon were a top division team.

I'd only have 1 and 4 in that. If 2 teams make a final having won a series of matches to get there it shouldn't be categorised as 'greatest upset'.
I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.

Aye but still this was The Crazy Gang v The Culture Club in the 80s when the Pool were just about still in their pomp.

Possibly not an upset but an unlikely win all the same, The Wild Things 1991 PGA Championship victory. He was something like 9th reserve and drove through the night to the course and teed up without having played a practice round and duly won by 3 shots..
