All 92 Clubs In English Football Have Been Ranked From 'Elite' To 'Tinpot'

All 92 teams in English football's four divisions have been ranked from 'Elite' to 'Tinpot'.

Football fans often find themselves locked in a debate as to who supports the "bigger club" and points about history and current positions will be made.


And @noofcontexfm1 has attempted to settle it once and for all by creating a tiermaker grouping the clubs in England across six different categories and no doubt angering fans in the process.

'Elite' sees just two clubs as Liverpool and Manchester United, the two most successful clubs in English football, are in their own league.

Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Everton follow behind in the 'Massive' column, with the likes of Spurs, Aston Villa, Leeds United, Wolves and Leicester City deemed to be no higher than 'Big'.

In the 'average', middle ground is Crystal Palace, Southampton, Fulham, Blackburn, Portsmouth, Sheffield United,Burnley and Watford to name just a few.

Fans of Bournemouth, Brentford Hull City, Preston, Huddersfield, Reading, Swindon Town and Peterborough United will not be happy with their placement in the "small" section, nor will supporters of Bristol Rovers, Doncaster Rovers, Leyton Orient, Notts County, Oldham Athletic, Port Vale and Walsall when they see they've been viewed as "tiny".

But it could be worse, they could have be branded "tinpot" at the very bottom of the pile. The final category features Accrington Stanley (Who are they?!), Barrow, Burton Albion, Macclesfield Town, Salford City, Fleetwood Town, Rochdale and Tranmere Rovers among others.
