Liverpool, Derby, Man Utd: Every Football League club ranked by their stadium

Clubs ranked by their stadium

England’s Football League is as much a part of the British furniture as the Queen herself.

From the Premier League right down to League 2 and even beyond, each and every fan in the country has a special connection to a football club for one reason or another.

Be it your hometown club, your grandparents team or just the club you were most drawn to at a young age, we all hold at least one very close to our hearts.

Now, obviously (and rightly) we all believe ours to be the best so how could one possibly go about ranking each and every one of the 92 clubs in any sort of way?

Well, one fan on Twitter has given it a go using just a single metric as his system – the club’s stadium.

Starting from the bottom with ‘Tinpot’ and working all the way up to elite, the fan has given his best effort at ranking the clubs. It has, unsurprisingly, caused some controversy.

No one likes to be called the worst of the wort so it is no surprise that the fans of the following clubs are perhaps the most vocal in the comments section of the tweet.

While ‘not bad’ is, in and of itself, not bad, it’s still a category nobody wants to see their beloved home stadium in.

Time for the apparent cream of the crop.

Aston Villa
Bradford City
Charlton Athletic
Luton Town
Carlisle United
Manchester United

Sheffield Wednesday

So there you have it – a definitive, although certainly controversial ranking of every club in the football league based purely off of their home stadium.
