From the proposed article you will find out who they are, the champions of England in football in recent years.
This is very interesting information that will allowyou understand what clubs are now the strongest, and which were those earlier.

Since after the Second World War the game is verymuch has changed, English football champions will be considered from the very end. So, the first official leader after the war was "Liverpool" (it was his fifth victory in history). He was followed by the sixth championship of "Arsenal", as well as two debut victories of "Portsmouth", which completed the decade.
The English football champions of the fifties were nottoo diverse. Only in 1951, 1953 and 1955 won the "Tottenham", "Arsenal" and "Chelsea", respectively. In the rest of the years, Manchester United (three championships) and Wolverhampton (also three wins) shared the lead. Interestingly, in 1954, Wolverhampton won their first trophy - and immediately began to show impressive results.
In the sixties, English champions inyears were distributed as follows: "Burnley" in 1960, "Tottenham" in 1961, in 1962 for the first time the winner was "Ipswich". Everton won in 1963, Liverpool won in 1964, Manchester United in 1965. Again Liverpool ended up on the top of the tournament in 1966, again Manchester United in 1967, Manchester City in 1968. "Leeds" won its first championship in 1969.
"Liverpool" has achieved incredible success inseventies, winning the championship four times: in 1973, 1976, 1977 and 1979 (five, if we consider 1980). In addition to this club, at the beginning of the decade the trophy went to Everton and Arsenal. In 1972, for the first time in the championship, the club won the Derby, and in 1978 the trophy for the first time passed into the hands of representatives of the club Nottingham Forest. However, at this tournament did not end - the list of champions of England on football continues.
The eighties marked the end of the FirstDivision of the Football League of England. This was the name of the country's championship all this time. The last champions of England in football by year, in this format of the championship, were diverse, but Liverpool continued to dominate. After the victory in 1980 and the failure in 1981, when the first line of the tournament was occupied by Ipswich, Liverpool became the leader of the championship three times in a row. From 1985 to 1988, the struggle between "Liverpool" and "Everton" was conducted. Clubs took turns taking the title, until the end of this in 1989, did not put Arsenal.
Another three years there was the First Divisionfootball league in England, and during this time, won the "Liverpool", "Arsenal" and "Leeds". And since the 1992/93 season, the winners of the Premier League have already been determined, which remains relevant to this day. The first champion was "MU", which has been waiting for this since 1967. And it was this club that dominated until the end of the decade. Another four times won the championship, "Manchester": in 1994, 1996, 1997 and 1999-m. In 1995, a series of victories was interrupted by "Brackburn", and in 1998 - "Arsenal".
The beginning and end of the zero ones also stayed behind"Manchester", which won the Premier League in 2000, 2001 and 2003 (in 2002 the title was ceded to "Arsenal"), and then three times in a row - from 2007 to 2009. In 2004, the victory was also won by "Arsenal", and then twice in a row won "Chelsea". He got a second wind thanks to financial injections. It was the second and third victories in the history of the club, the first one he won, as far as you remember, in the distant 1955.
In 2010, Chelsea for the fourth time in historywon the Premier League, and in 2011, "Manchester" as close as possible to becoming the champion for the twentieth time. The following year, financial injections helped to win the third victory in the history of the club, "Manchester City", which was the last time triumpher in 1968. In the next two years, two clubs from Manchester have issued one more championship. And "MU" won the championship of England for the twentieth time. In 2015, the victory remained for Chelsea, but England's 2016 football champion is Leicester (head coach Claudio Ranieri), who only recently made his way to the big leagues. It was a real football miracle. Absolutely no star composition from the town with a population of 300 thousand people proved that in our time it is possible to achieve success with the help of a lot of labor.
