    The list obviously only accounts for league finishes and doesn't take anything else in to consideration but there aren't any major surprises. MK Dons and AFC Wimbledon probably the two interesting names on that list.

    MK Dons heavily skewed in favour of Wimbledon's successes / league finishes. AFC Wimbledon rank pretty high given their age too. Shows how quickly they've risen.

    Oh ffs I talked to a random Southampton fan in Canada barely 24 hrs ago and the first thing I thought of when he brought up Portsmouth was this ****ing board and skates. I stopped him before he even started.

    This is diabolical. I glance at 2 threads every 2 months.
