Strongest Premier League

Just wondered about your ideal Prem line up. Which clubs would make up the perfect one? Maybe based on clubs you remember being big growing up as a kid (Oxford were big with Saunders, Houghton etc but now young fans would not even consider Oxford as a big club).

In no particular order I would have

 

Man Utd

Man City

Arsenal

Liverpool

Everton

Chelsea

Sheffield Wednesday

Derby County

West Ham Utd

Aston Villa

Leeds

Newcastle

QPR

Oldham

Norwich

Sheffield United

Nottingham Forest (sorry!)

Coventry City

Southampton

Watford

All clubs I remember being in and around it during the times I was growing up.

Amazing to think what's happened to Coventry and even Luton Town who used to be up there.

Oldham under Joe Royle were superb.

Portsmouth were better in the PL. As were Ipswich under Burley, as were Sunderland under Reid, as were Middlesbrough under Robson and McClaren, as were Charlton under Curbishley, as were Bolton under Allardyce, .......

You can't have them all! ;)

Like I said, it might be teams that stick in your mind from growing up as well as for other reasons.

v difficult to get such a system to be fair as the density of league clubs is so uneven. Allocating 2 spots to E Anglia who only basically have 2 teams (unless you stretch the borders to Cambridge and even Peterborough) looks odd as against 4 for the NW where you are excluding a large number of others Blackburn, Bolton etc

 

Any road, no Corinthian Casuals - so I'm out;)

London could quite easily have another three or four ,more teams but wanted fair geographical spread,

Bit harsh on Leicester and a few Lancashire and Midland cities, but going for big markets and keeping rivalries in tact bar Sheffield.

Watford & Oldham... Sorry not having them.

 

Well now you got Watford and Bournemouth..

I'd sooner have Oldham, they were good in the Joe Royle era.

We've no divine right, but surely Derby and Leeds, Wolves and Villa, Newcastle and Wednesday, even F****t would be an improvement on some of the clubs currently occupying the lower half of England's top division.

Oldham were good but was always going to be short lived.. Similar to Bournemouth.
