Most Successful Clubs in England – To be a football club you have to play in competitions, but to be successful you have to win competitions. In this piece, we journey to the birthplace of football for the purpose of analyzing their progress and look for those clubs that have been doing what they were supposed to do- winning the trophies which their founders founded them to win.

Seems like a simple thing to do if the club is in the habit of winning trophies as everything else should follow quite naturally.
Without further ado, we present the Most Successful Clubs in England.
