Who's been champion?

Postby Red Snapper » Mon Mar 12, 2018 7:46 pm

I recently got in a minor facebook spat with a spud who claimed his club were one of the most successful league sides since football began (obviously he didn't mean Premier league). I posted the following and haven't heard from him since!

Summary 1889-2017 (118 championships)

20 Manchester United
18 Liverpool
13 Arsenal
9 Everton
7 Aston Villa
6 Sunderland, Chelsea
4 Newcastle United, The Wednesday/Sheffield Wednesday, Manchester City
3 Huddersfield Town, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Leeds United, Blackburn Rovers
2 Preston North End, Portsmouth, Burnley, Tottenham Hotspur, Derby County
1 Sheffield United, West Bromwich Albion, Ipswich Town, Nottingham Forest.
Leicester City

I was surprised that only 24 clubs have won the league in 118 seasons.

If you look at the 21 Clubs who are below the top three only Man City, Chelsea and possibly Spurs could win the Premiership in the foreseeable future and of those three City and Chelsea are where they are today thanks to the Arabs and Russians.

Also the four clubs top of the list account for over half of the total so maybe it's not such a surprise that there have only been 24 winners!
