SkySports #UltimateLeague

UltimateLeagueCoventry City sit in 15th position in The #UltimateLeague drawn up by SkySports.

The Sky Blues may currently be in League One but rank 15th in the Ultimate League after enjoying sustained top-flight status between 1967/68 to 2000/01 but are now the biggest underachievers among the top 20, sitting 17th in League One, 46 places below their Ultimate League ranking.

Overall, City are the third biggest underachievers with only Portsmouth (50 places below their average finishing position) and Stockport (49 places below their average.)

Liverpool are English football’s top side, according to the Ultimate League table compiled by Sky Sports putting them ahead of current Premier League leaders Chelsea and the rest of the Top 4; Manchester United, Arsenal & Manchester City.

Positions have been calculated from teams’ average season-ending positions over the last 50 years.

Only teams that have appeared in the top four English leagues for at least 15 seasons since 1964/65 have been included – although any ventures into non-league are also reflected.
