    People, people, just a couple of things.

    1. Liverpool are not the most successful club in English football history, where football is from, Manchester United FC now are as they have the most officially recognised trophies. As a side note, they also have the most top flight league titles, most FA cups and are the only team to do the treble.

    2. Rangers being words most successful club is kind of a fake comment!! Technically its true, but no one in World football pays any attention to it or holds it with real value but Rangers fans. I mean from about 100 years Rangers have 53, Celtic have 40+ and Aberdeen have about 6 titles. What does that tell you? In fact, even in the SPL, no team BUT Celtic or Rangers has won it since Sir Alex Ferguson was there in 1985/6 with Abderdeen. Says it all. If they were the most successful in the world then surely they’d have won at least 1 European cup by now, yet they haven’t and don’t get anywhere near it, not even out the group stage, that’s IF they actually qualify, those two teams. They are only significant in Scotland, which is widely regarded as a weak league. Sorry but that’s the way it is. Yet year upon year, its a given one of them or both will get silverware.

    the Scottish league wasn’t always like that and like it or not rangers have won the most trophies,one of witch was a European trophy and to say they never pass the group stage is wrong, Celtic twice and rangers once and Celtic wher not only the first British team but non Latin team to win the European cup and with all local players, a first and a last

    I think it’s fair to say that without these teams the so called “big teams” which are being suggested wouldn’t even be where they are now. Oh and daviebhoy, I would possibly contemplate your theory on Sheffield more if you could correctly use the words, “where” and “defiantly” in context of your statement.

    All in all it’s a very good list.

    @daviebhoy – What planet are you on? TSV 1860 München (the football club), as the name suggests, were formed on 17 May 1860 not in 1848.

    Sheffield FC (aka The Club) are the oldest football team in the world, with Hallam FC recognised as the second.

    The first team to pay one of their players was actually The Wednesday. JJ Lang was hired by a Wednesday director in the 1870s. His job involved no duties but coincidently he started playing for the club.

    @ Daviebhoy. Get your facts right, son. 1860 Munchen may have been founded in 1848, but they didn’t play football until 1899.

    Sheffield FC is the world’s oldest football club – end of.

    I don’t know why there is so much negativity, I think the list that you’ve compiled is a very good effort. A lot of good reasoning behind each choice. I understand why you have included teams like Darwen FC, because they did something which was revolutionary.

    It’s definitely not an easy list to narrow down to just 20 teams as I understand why others would want to see teams like Rangers, Celtic and Linfield included as they’ve each had incredible success but I’m happy with your selections. Maybe missing an Eastern European team, maybe someone like Honved or FC Start,

    I can’t believe idiots on here think villa, Blackburn and Tottenham were the first to win the double. It was the mighty lillywhites PNE who will always be the best club in the Nothwest and Preston the best city. Elswick should be in this list withGRimsargh as the most successful clubs ever in summer

    The list is a thought provoking one. It’s a pity it provoked the numpties who support the Ugly Sisters (Rangers and Celtic) to embarrass themselves

    I agree for most of them but I would have added, Arsenal, River Plate, Bayer Munich and Celtic.
