Leeds did get to the Champions League semi-final not so long ago. They were a top team in much of the 60s and 70s.

Newcastle have not won anything worthwhile since the Fairs Cup in the late 60s.

To be fair, the amount of clubs that 'could' (and whose fans believe they should) be in the top flight is about 50!

If we are talking managers, Mike Neweel and Neil Woods  


Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

Ravel Morrison for players surely? If he had the right attitude he'd go far in the game.

Agree probably could put Peter Sweeney in that category as well

I'd add Conlon to the list as well, him and Sweeney showed how good they could be in that spell when they were playing for a contract, just a shame it didn't last any longer than that!

I'd have to go for Newcastle - always managed to member it up somehow (usually off the pitch) despite such massive, loyal support
Leeds is a good call - should have won so much more under Don Revie

Bristol is a huge under-achieving city - one of the UK's biggest but neither club has achieved anything of any note
