Are we in the lowest league position


Recommended Posts

That league table from our last time in Div 4 - exactly half of the 24 teams have spent time in non league, or are still non league or no longer exist in their original form.  A scary thought.  5 of us have spent several, or many, seasons in the Prem.

Back in 1888 -  the Leagues very first season 

Our first game against Derby at home we lost 6-3 

We lost the next 2 at home to  Burnley 4-3 and then at Preston 3-1 

So 3 games in we were bottom of the entire Football League 

Admittedly only 12 teams in the League and no relegation 

But bottom we were

Bit like saying the person coming last of eight runners in the Olympic 100m sprint was the slowest sprinter rather than the eighth fastest sprinter in the world.

Every team in England at that time could’ve applied to be one of those first 12 teams. They didn’t.

Would accept top 12 in top league now.

There are also loads of teams lower than us and shitter than us.

Still our lowest position though.

Not that it matters at the moment.

This is as good a thread for this as any...regarding the possibility of the National League season being cancelled (and I hope it isn't for football's sake), it would remove the possibility of relegation from Div 2.  I'm not suggesting we are in danger of finishing in the bottom 2, but its going to change the landscape for a lot of teams if there's no danger of losing EFL status.  And if the worst happens and IE's reign goes disastrously, he's just giving us a disappointing season and delaying our renaissance rather than risking our very future.  If we lose our next couple, that thought will allow me to breathe a bit easier.
