Nice quiz, thank you

You’re missing MK Dons or Milton Keynes Dons

I don't think they are. MK Dons is a renamed Wimbledon, who were in the Premier League. The new Wimbledon have never appeared in the top flight.

Actually @Ant1927 is correct. MK Dons, whilst a continuation of the old Wimbledon, are considered to be an entirely new club founded in 2004.

Really enjoyed that quiz. I did find it tough to recall clubs that are no longer in the league. I think it needs to be updated. Brentford made it to EPL in 2021.

I agree with Eamo,that Brentford are now in the Premier League and was in the Premier League when this was last updated.

I missed Maidstone Utd. They are a funny case for this quiz. They were technically in the football league for the 1992/93 season but never played a game. The club folded on 17th August 1992 without playing a match for that season. I suppose it probably does count, but only just!

Awesome quiz

I think it's debatable on whether to have AFC Wimbledon or MK Dons as a continuation of Wimbledon, but surely not both? Maybe colour in those cells and Maidstone to show they're a bit dubious? Great quiz though.
