“League Two champions Portsmouth were top for just 32 minutes all season. Has any league winner been top for a shorter period?” asks Mark Funnell.
“The Burnley 1959-60 title-winning team were top for all of 68 minutes, according to this post from Game of the People,” writes Rob McEvoy. “This is more than Portsmouth but they won the first division, not the fourth.” What’s more, Burnley’s last game against Manchester City was played after their title rivals’ final games. Wolves ended their season top of the league but didn’t win the title.
