Clubs With Maximum Relegations in England

In football, the worst thing that can happen to a club is relegation. Unfortunately, in England, some clubs have faced too many relegations

The most basic aim of any football club is to win something. Be it the league, knockout cup or continental cup; the goal is to bring a trophy home. However, clubs that are not capable of winning anything have a different goal, i.e., to finish high in the league. In short, be it a small club or a big club, nobody wants to face relegation.
