Longest Gap between Top Division Appearances Can't Post or Reply Privately

The failure of Leeds to make the play-off finals yesterday, allowed reporters to remind us that itís now 16 years since they last appeared in the PL.

This got me thinking, what is the biggest gap between a footballs clubs appearances in the top division?

Huddersfield Town had a gap of 46 years between top-flight appearances. Has there been a bigger gap?

What about the longest stint in the top-flight for clubs that have only had one-stint?

Thinking Coventry City: 34 years

They've had 2 stints in the top flight, separated by 2 in the 2nd tier from 1913-15.

Arsenal have never been relegated .... they were renamed upon their return to the top flight, from their former Woolwich Arsenal.

Bury have now gone 90 seasons since they last played in the top tier.



The feeling of utter devastation when you pick up your mug and realise you already finished your tea.
