All-time Premier League table: after 28 seasons, where YOUR club sits

Recommended Posts

Not bad considering we've probably not even been in the Premier League for half of it's existence.

I make this our 14th season, so yeah exactly half. 

 

Edit: just seen that was in the original post.

14 seasons. 

 

14th place. 

 

Been quite dull whenever we've been in the division. Not sure what we add to it.

Opened it up and an error in the first write up, saying Swindon were in the PL in 92/93. Makes me not want to read the rest 😄.

We're pretty much either top half or relegated. We don't spend years flitting between 12th and 16th.

Though interesting, these are basically just tables of who has spent the most seasons in the league really. More interesting to understand performance is the points per game one, which has us at 12th, leapfrogging Southampton and West Ham.

156 more points than Notts Forest and Derby combined.

 

The likes of Wigan and Charlton are above them.

I think this list is definitive proof that Burnley are now a bigger club than Forest

Except you could potentially have a club winning the Premier League in their first season and then jump to the top of the all time table.

Well yes, obviously that could happen. But also that would point to a very good Premier League performance, so I struggle to understand the point you're trying to make.

So Forest who bang on about European Cups, have spent a grand total of 5 of the last 28 seasons in the top flight. The same as Bournemouth, hull and next season Sheff Utd. 
Derby who claim to be of equal size or bigger than us, have spent 75% of seasons since the PL began outside the top division, the same As Watford, QPR and Birmingham.

Its hard to argue of the last 30 years we are by far the biggest club in the East Midlands and second only to Villa in the midlands.

If you need any more evidence in that time we have picked up two league cups and a PL title.

On a side note I’d love to finish 23 points above Leeds next season and move above them.

They are remarkably high for a team who have spent 16 seasons outside the division and shows how hard they fell.

Massively disagree, why should a team benefit on a table like this through not being in the division?

We were shit for about 10 years where as some clubs plodded along nicely, others like Ipswich, Reading and Forest had one or two good seasons, but then went back down. They shouldn’t be looked at as better for that.

The fact is you need to be in The Premier League to earn the points.

Of course it would but gives a false indication of Premier League success over 28 seasons. If, for example, Brentford get promoted and next season win the PL with the best points per game ratio, should they be recorded above ManU as the all time most successful team?
