Why on sky rumours other fans don't know much about Everton's history we have never played football outside the top tier that is a huge accomplishment that's why evertonians are born not manufactured.

Thats wrong. We have played in the 2nd division.

Arsenal have only ever played top flight but we've played more top flight games than any other club.

That's also incorrect arsenal were in the second division finishing 5th in 1915 but that was enough for them to be promoted and since then they have been ever present I'm sure I have read somewhere that it was to do with the war that led to there promotion but I can't clearly recall it at the min.

I think the stat is Arsenal are the longest serving in England’s top flight and we are second longest
That’s what I recall reading a long while ago, around the time it was under threat from Mike Walker.

True, relegated 1913. No English team has been in the top flight for their entire history.

I was under the impression that Arsenal were elected into the top flight and have stayed there ever since therefore never dropping out whils Everton have spent the most seasons in top flight due to having a longer history as founder members of the football league.

In a nutshell both clubs hold records for differing stats.

I think the war plays a part in our history too.
I believe we were the last champions of England when we packed away the sport for the duration of the war.

Im Sure I read that as we presided over the title, we have been champions for 18 years? Obviously only winning the top flight 9 times.

I should probably Google my claim before posting but sod it. You can correct me.

I think it was both wars. we seem to even have Hitler and the Nazis trying to stop us!

That's right Degsy. I had a little look. Hopefully we can win one in peace time ;)
