    What club has gone up the most levels in the last few years?

    Also what are some big Nationwide rivalries?

    One impressive achievement recently was Brighton winning two successive championships (Div3 00/01 and Div2 01/02) before being 9only just) relegated last season. Revatively recently Watford (97/98 and 98/99) and Man City (98/99 and 99/00) have had successive promotions from 2nd to Prem. One team recently to go up through all 4 divisions was Fulham in the 90s but it took them a good 7 or 8 years I think to get from 3rd to Prem (not too sure!)

    As for rivalries, the big one for me is my club Sheff Utd against our neighbours W****day. This is massive, and beating them 3-1 last season was a major buzz.
    Other big rivalries are Norwich v. Ipswich, Bristol Rovers and City, Millwall and West Ham, Preston and Blackpool, Stoke City and Port Vale (the other Stoke club), Cardiff and Swansea, Brighton and Crystal Palace, Watford and Luton, Nottingham Forest and Notts County (despite being hardly ever in same div), N. Forest v. Derby County, plus obviously all the London clubs between eachother.

    Those all the ones I can think of at the moment, but I'm sure theres loads more.
