Well, not really fuck all, tbf. Thirteen league titles [inc three Prems], thirteen FA Cups, a couple of League Cups... but no Barometer. They've never really looked like winning it either, which is their real failure, despite reaching the final. I quite like watching them on telly sometimes but they do always seem a bit lightweight for the ultimate tests.
Well alright, let me rephrase that. Over a similar timescale to that which we've been out of the Prem, they've consistently failed to meet their own targets.
agreed, though their targets are very lofty.
over all-time, they've been hugely more successful than 89 of the other 91 league clubs.
in recent years they've 'only' been better than i suppose 88 of the 91 others.
this line peddled by some of their fans that this makes them 'long suffering' or 'loyal to the point of [.]' or whatever doesn't even register with me, it's just toddlerish babybabble.
