Arsenal Kyiv - Fake History

Dear all,

Which clubs have been most guilty of investing their histories?

History is now considered as one of the main factors in justifying a club's "big club" status. How often have you heard clubs chanting about glorious pasts? "If you know the history" etc...

*The Arsenal Kyiv club are one such example, and this issue has been explored in great detail here on futbolgrad website. Search "futbolgrad" and "arsenal kyiv" to get article.

Well the case study of Arsenal Kyiv (link attached) tells of club who have identified itself by using a tenuous link to previous club. This has provided it with a sense of a past, a way of strengthening in some ways the legitimacy of the club as an institution, a part of community.

From that, how important are then histories for being a legitimate member of the football community?

Who have fabricated their past to improve their standing/reputation, if any?

Which clubs have been most guilty of investing their histories?
