When I started supporting football, superiority in mist divisions was to be found in the north with the classic teams, but with most London and southern teams receiving some form of major investment its turning the other way. I had a funny feeling we might be next and if the Eisner deal gets a yes then I look foward to a fun future.
I had no idea you were that old DML, ive read all about the founding years of the football league and the original northern powerhouses of Accrington, Aston Villa, Blackburn Rovers, Bolton Wanderers, Burnley, Derby County, Everton, Notts County, Preston North End, Stoke, West Bromwich Albion and Wolverhampton Wanderers. A time when top flight organised football only existing in the north of the country. It wasn't until 1931 when a southern club (Arsenal) one the league.
