A solid centreback for Manchester city, Qpr and Astonvilla.Though the irishman got more tackles right that he got them wrong, but a tally of 78 yellow cards and 8 red cards a latter joint most in the premier league history, suggests that when it went wrong it's really went wrong for Dunne.He received 9 yellow cards in the 2005/2006 premier league season.He was dismissed early in the first half against Middlesbrough in 2008 where city faced their heaviest loss after being thrashed 8:1.

3.Joey Barton

Joey Barton likes to promote the image of himself as the thinking man’s footballer but his past misdemeanours run contrary to such claims. A once-talented prospect at Manchester City, Barton became embroiled in a series of ugly incidents both on and off the pitch that has cast a shadow over his achievements as a player. At City, Barton first made headlines for putting a cigar out on the eyelid of youth player James Tandy. He then followed that up a few years later by beating up teammate Oliver Dabo following a training ground disagreement. Sent off six times in the Premier League, Barton’s record is notable for the fact that five of those were straight red cards.
