A quick statto post (and quiz)

I was wondering how our drought of 42 seasons without winning a title compares with other clubs.
By my reckoning, since we last won our division, an astonishing 98 different clubs have finished top of one of the top five divisions (75 clubs if you just count the top four divisions).

However, there are 12 league (i.e. Premier League and EFL) clubs who have not won their division since before 1979/80... how many can you name?  

(Note that "won their division" means whatever league the club was playing in, not necessarily one of the top five).

I don’t know many but I have a feeling Rochdale have never won anything at all. I remember when they got promoted a few years ago it was their first promotion in 50 or so years

We are spoilt let's be honest 😂

All joking aside not many fans of EFL teams can say they've been the the old and new Wembley, millennium stadium and olympic stadium for play off finals

Spot on - Rochdale are one of three who have never won a title.

Yep, their last title was the Lancashire Combination in 1968!

Only 2/5.
Villa won the league in 1980-81
Everton won the league in 1984-85 and 1986-87
West Ham won division 2 in 1980-81

Rochdale, as mentioned above, have never won anything.
And Tottenham's last title was in their double-winning season of 1960-61.

Sheffield Wednesday? They are one of those teams that never seem to finish higher than 5th!
