13/14 – Southampton (8th)

14/15 – Stoke City (9th)

15/16 – Leicester City (1st)

16/17 – AFC Bournemouth (9th)

Aside from Manchester United who won it in the first season (so it doesnt really count), Leicester City in 15/16 are the only team who won this version as well as winning the acutal championship in the same year.

ps, yeah I stole this idea from /u/HoneysucklePink over at /r/formula1

___

edit: some people seem confused.

Man Utd won in 92/93. They also *in real life* won in 93/94, but on this they can only win the league once. So the next team not to have won the league (Blackburn) took the win. In the 3rd season, Blackburn actually won the league, with Man Utd 2nd. For this though, they both already won the league once, so 3rd place took the win – Nottingham Forest.

…and so on!

    >98/99 – Chelsea

    That team was surprisingly close if memory serves. They were pushing United and Arsenal all the way up until around late March and then had a mini drought right at the end of the season. (Which was basically us fucking them over with a shitty 0-0 during a rescheduled game in April.)

    Zola was in complete beast mode back then but a lot of his talents were overlooked by that treble winning United side. (Which was far enough tbh.)

    They only lost three matches, all of which were by a single goal.

    Problem was, this mini-success went to their heads a little bit and Ken Bates started doing his Peter Risdale impression by spunking money they didn’t have on infinitely more useless players with far less resale values than the ones Leeds had.

    (And remember kids, Abramovich was the only thing stopping them from financially imploding back then. They didn’t have a pot to piss in 2003.)

    Could anyone please explain me how this table works? As far as I understand, we take each top team from every season that had not won EPL earlier. So, for example, if Arsenal came first and Huddersfield followed them, then we write Huddersfield as the champions since Arsenal got that before. Am I right? If no, please explain. If yes… How does Stoke 14/15 comes after Swansea? When did the Welsh win EPL? Now you may say, “They’re not included because they’re not from England you fookin’ cunt” but if they are a member of EPL, why would they be not included?

    Sorry if this is a too dumb question but I honestly didn’t understand how this table works. Or, more like, I didn’t know so many different teams had EPL titles. What am I missing here?

    Great stuff, OP! Who are the best clubs of the PL era that still haven’t won?

    What surprised me was Aston Villa at 03/04. Aston Villa were a team that always had a lot of quality and were not quite foot enough to challenge but a bit better than the rest.

    When I say “rest”.. At the time there was United, Arsenal and Liverpool.

    No City clearly or Chelsea although Chelsea had that better than the rest feel and went on to sign some real quality players but were more a cup team. They were never going to challenge United or Arsenal over a season.

    But what if everyone can be champions once, but the aggregated ranking of the teams must be lowest as possible? So no chronological, but mostly 2nd and 3rd placed teams instead of 7th.
