It doesn’t matter whether it’s historical, financial or the amount of trophies won, whatever way you look at it, we were near the top in all those categories, so this must have made us a big club.
Who disagrees with that?
It wasn’t that long ago that Man City were a mid table team, and not before that so were Chelsea and Leicester as well.
So there’s always been different teams winning the league.
There were the big four or five clubs, like there is now which were Liverpool, Arsenal, Everton, Man U and spurs, so it’s almost the same amount as in the PL in recent seasons.
In the seventies and eighties there was only one super team in this country, and that was Liverpool.
They simply dominated football here and in Europe like no other team since.
There were other teams winning the Cup Winners Cup and the EUFA Cup, including us but the biggest European competition was pretty much Liverpool most seasons.
