Arsenal Christmas or Birthday Gifts

Hi. I'm Tony Coleby. I updated this thing at last. Congratulations Tottenham, you did it. It took you a generation but you did it.
Methodology. I totalled all the major honours so that means no Community Shields, Super Cups or any of that one match and you've won rubbish. Competitions with at least say, 8 teams in you know?

So what does that mean for this chart? Well, up until now I've had Liverpool above Manchester United in first place due to the higher total (41-39 as of the end of 2016-17). This is with no weighting (I'll do another all time English football club table that way some time soon). United's two trophies in this season saw them tie Liverpool in total (proper) honours with 41 apiece.

Now, we should use the league as a decider. I was in mind to use Champions League titles to do that as they are in my opinion harder to win (ask Arsenal). But as we are talking about the competition in which all of these clubs will play each other, I think I'm justified in doing that.

Everton's ranking above Spurs here is simply because they have 9 titles to Tottenham's 2. They have a long way to go to actually 'eclipse' their North London rivals in the history books.
