Aston Villa : the first club entitled to be called a 'Superclub'.
For more than 20 years before 1915 the club dominated world football after the club's former chairman, William McGregor, had founded the world's first football league.
In 1981, the club had still won more domestic honours than any other English club. In 1982, the club won the European Cup and throughout the 1990s was a leading club in the top-flight of English football.
It still is.
