You’re talking about historically greatness. Historically Liverpool is still number 1 and Chelsea and City are historically lower table nobodies. Everton, Leeds and Newcastle are historically all bigger than those 2. But today Liverpool with the most history are probably the 5th most attractive English team, maybe 6th.
If Wenger had gone to Newcastle and brought in the best of Europe’s talents, given them 3 PL titles and 7 FA Cups and gave them consistent CL football they’d be considered a huge club today. He’ll always be a huge part of our history and we were lucky to have him.
It’s interesting thinking back though. Because today you accept who the top 6 will be at the start of the season and usually you’ll be right. But back then Leeds and Blackburn could get promoted and win the title in a couple of seasons. Back in the 70s and 80s many English teams won European trophies. Now you know it’ll be between 3 super teams.
Football’s been ruined.
