So who do you think is the most successful club in the championship?

Success is based on winning trophies in the history of the respective clubs

I called BB's top four but in a different order

Funny enough when i communicate with opposition fans especially the younger generation they forget the history Leeds had in the 60's/70's, some of them can't even remember that we won the last First Division as it was prior to it becoming the Premiership.

I remember one gormless Hull fan thinking they had more history than the mighty whites :shock:

Even some of our less knowledgeable fans chant to the Huddersfield fans 'You've never won F**k all'

Erm! Huddersfield won three consecutitive First Division titles in the 1920's

Well you’ve a few former Div1 and more recently PL Champions in the current Championship at the moment:

Leeds, Forest, Derby, Preston, Derby, Blackburn, Sheffield Wed and Huddersfield (West Brom might have also won it many years ago)

As for a top 4, I’d go:
1. Forest (I just don’t think you can ignore 2 European Cups)
2. Leeds
3. Sheffield We’d
4. Blackburn (largely because of their PL success)

That is my top four Cat

Ben has it in a different order due to allocating points to the trophies won

I would grade a European Fairs Cup above the League Cup

Haven't watched the video clip yet, so didn't know what order he had them in, but there's only really 4 or 5 you could reasonably put up there.

Anyone with a
1. Luton
2. Barnsley
3. Wigan
4. Reading

sort of order is either a misguided Hatter or has been on the pop :!: :lol:

Oh yes, I had forgotten that :oops:

….and didn't Luton win the League (Milk/Littlewoods/Rumbelows) Cup back with David Pleat in the mid-late 80's
