A small group of clubs can claim to have the best 'pedigree' in England's top league, but who are they? Football fans take great pride in their favoured club's history - the origin stories, legendary players who graced their pitch and, of course, the trophies they've won. Another badge of honour for many fans is when a club has never been relegated from the top division, since it serves as a reminder of the club's perceived pedigree. Considering the fact that many clubs in England have been in existence and competing for over a century, a long stretch of uninterrupted participation in the top flight is certainly an achievement.
