I mean the below speaks for itself, surely they deserve to be in the Top 6 category now?
They moved the goalposts when some of the traditional top 4 teams started finishing outside the top 4, but even then it became the big 6, not the top 6 to get around the fact that some of us weren't even finishing in the top 6 in some seasons.
What do you think makes Spurs a bigger club than Leicester? They've only won a couple of FA and League Cups since the world was in black and white.It's not really the top 6 though is it, it's the 'big' 6
Arsenal and Spurs are still bigger clubs than Leicester unfortunately. Leicester are undoubtedly better than Arsenal though, debate to be had about Spurs
Probably moved it for us because we were/are yoyo-ing in and out of top 4 but we're a big name so have to be included in conversations.
Like everything nowadays, it's about revenue. Spurs' revenue is about the 4th highest in the league. If you look at this chart, you'll see the big 6 are pretty obvious, and it has nothing to do with trophy count.
Yes but they're on for a 5th season in a row of finishing ahead of you in the league, with 3 of those seasons resulting in UCL football for them and EL football for Arsenal
it became a 'big' 6 when two of the 'top' 4 regularly stopped finishing in the top 4It's not like it's an exclusive club that only a select few clubs have ever been in, so they absolutely deserve to be in the reckoning. I get that City need to be in the top 4/6/whatever since they're annoyingly good after getting sugardaddied, but Spurs haven't won anything and people just sort of accept that they're entitled to a spot. If Spurs are in, so are Leicester.
When did it become the top 6 anyway? As far as I recall Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and us used to be the so-called 'Big Four' before City got unlimited money.
At the end of the day the idea of there being a fixed number of clubs at the top of the hierarchy is dumb.
This, and global popularity ties in to how much money a club earns.
