Years since relegation 08:01 - May 16 with 738 viewsJesusJack

The bit of trivia that has popped up both on here and in the pub regarding the last time we were relegated got me thinking how lucky we've actually been over the last decade and a half. It got me wondering how we have compared to others since our last relegation in 2001.

So out of boredom, curiosity and pure anorak syndrome, I've gone through all relegations back to 1992 (which picked up 95% of relegations) then done an individual club check on the remaining teams.

Apologies for any errors. I tried to do some double checks on any that looked suspicious or surprising. Any corrections are welcome.
Also, apologies for the format. Excel doesn't translate well here.

One that took my notice was this was Burton's first relegation since 1977.

Final note, this only includes relegation from the EPL/EFL unless otherwise stated. Teams may have been relegated from the conference since the year listed.

In descending order of years since last relegation (Not including 2018);

Very interesting read that. Amazing to see some of these clubs. Oldham have had 21 seasons.in league 1, that is bonkers.as they were one of the PL originals.

It really struck me when I realised that this is the first relegation that my 18 year old son will remember. That’s quite the run that we went on...

Morecambe haven’t been relegated in 98 years???

The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.

As far as I can tell. They have finished in the bottom 2 in the past but were re-elected.

Up until a few seasons ago, Gainsborough had never been promoted or relegated in their entire history going back to the 19th century, only moved leagues by being elected in or out.

The big difference is the last time we were regulated we had crooks like Mike Lewis in charge.

Great OP JJ, some intriguing stats. But I think you need a woman in your life....or was it a woman that drove you to it?

I'll be happily married in September so she hasn't driven me to anything just yet.

I do need to start getting on with my work instead of procrastinating by compiling football statistics.

Rochdale had spent decades in div4 until they were promoted a few years back.
