Eras work when talking about a club in isolation but you can't compare them from club to club. because the general mandates (same manager, core team, similar style, a certain trajectory) can last two seasons for one club or eight for another. and that becomes a bit unfair.
A team that dominates for 5 years is better than a team that does so for 3.

Not all title wins are equal though.

Take City in 2017-19 for example. 100 and 98 points in consecutive seasons. For me that’s the most impressive, dominant side I’ve seen in English football. The professionalism to drop so few points in an era where you have 6-7 very good sides, and vastly more quality in the lower half than there was 10 years ago, is incredible.

I’d rate what they did in those 2 seasons above a team winning 3 in a row getting 80-odd points a season.

Agree to disagree on that. I think it is harder to keep a group of players motivated to win for 3+ seasons. Lots of players and managers burn out.

Comparison of Premier League sides to go 38 games unbeaten. That Chelsea side had an unbelievable defensive record.

My reasons for putting Liverpool top is obviously tongue slightly in cheek, but I actually do expect them to go on and be regarded as the best ever PL side. I can’t see anyone stopping them in the next couple of seasons at least. It’s up to them to fulfill on that promise
Why are you trolling?
