the oldest football club in the world is currently sitting at the bottom of League Two with two games to go and 2 points behind the 22nd placed team.

Looking at the graph, it's funny how it was always one of the clubs that "counted", to me at least, unlike Wigan or whatever. I thought the reason was they happened to be in the top tier at one point during my formative league-table-reading years from roughty 1989-1993. Could be the other history though, or the Anglo-Italian Cup title from 1995, where they beat a zebra-striped club in the final.
