Other London Clubs

Barnet

Former owner Stan Flashman, a famous ticket tout, stumped up the cash that helped the Bees gain league status in 1991. Now Stan has gone, the money is tight and Barnet have blown the chance to climb into the Second Division this season.
Ground: Underhill

Brentford

Despite being famous for having the only ground in the country (the world?) with a pub on each corner, Brentford have been deprived of glory for many a year. The Bees heyday was the 1940s and many of the club's distinctly aged crowd remember the era well. Still, promotion is on this year, cor lummey.
Ground: Griffin Park

Crystal Palace

One of the country's top yo-yo clubs, Palace find it tricky sticking to any one division, having been up to the Premiership and down again twice in the last five years. Two years ago Palace missed out on promotion to the last kick - an opposition goal - in a play-off final, last season they scored in the final seconds of the final to enter the big boys once more.

This season they are once more struggling despite the services of Juventus duo, Lombardo and Padavano.
Ground: Selhurst Park (Wimbledon are tenants)
Nickname: Eagles

Leyton Orient

Exotic sounding name belies a very nuts and bolts club, recently bought by snooker impresario Barry Hearn. Beached in mid-table, the O's must wait until next season to reap the benefits of Hearn's self-proclaimed organisational genius.
Ground: Brisbane Road
Nickname: O's

Luton Town

Little Luton were forever in the headlines in the 1980s. The Hatters were the first club to install a plastic pitch, the first club to ban away fans, and the first celebrate when they beat mighty Arsenal in the League Cup Final of 1988. They've ripped up the plastic and let in visiting supporters since then, but have slipped down the divisions as well. A return to the First Division looks on for this next season.
Ground: Kenilworth Road
Nickname: Hatters

Millwall

Now being run by evil sounding 'financial administrators', the Lions are paying the heavy price of building a brand, spanking new stadium a couple of years ago on the hope they would reach the Premiership. Instead they reached the second division and now face a bleak future. Ground: The New Den
Nickname: Lions

Queen's Park Rangers

Constantly fighting for breathing space with their powerful neighbours (Chelsea to the west, Tottenham to the northeast) Rangers periodically emerge from the shadows with a brand of pretty football that has admirers, like those from the nearby BBC TV centre, cooing. The Superhoops are now backed by media mogul Chris Wright and his money should see QPR reach the Premiership next season.
Ground: Loftus Road
Nickname: Superhoops; R's

Watford

Watford came to everyone's notice in the 1980s when Elton John's money and Graham Taylor's long ball game combined to send the Hornets from bottom to top divison in half a decade. Both men left the club but two years ago came back and have repeated history to take this most unfashionable of clubs back to the top flight.

Wimbledon

Johnny-come-latelys who have managed to stay in the top flight for a decade, despite existing on crowds of fewer than 10,000 and selling most of their best players in a series of summer sales. This season the Dons have defied yet more odds by sticking with the leaders at the top and reaching the final stages of two cups.
Ground: Selhurst Park
Trademark Chant: Come On You Dons
Nickname: Dons, The Crazy Gang
One word to the wise: Workrate
Insider info: Explain that you've supported the Dons since before they were a league club

Wycombe Wanderers

Already all the euphoria of getting into the league a few years ago has evaporated as the Wanderers stare relegation in the face.
Ground: Adams Park
Nickname: Blues
