Palace’s average league position since 1959

After a discussion on another thread about Palace’s place in the football pyramid, and in particular a comment from El Aguila, I thought I’d work out what our average league position works out at. I chose to start from 1958/59 to the present day as that year was when the North and South leagues were abolished and we just had four national leagues of 92 teams as we do today.

I will reveal the answer later in the thread, but before I do, I will place up a poll to see off the top of your heads, where you think our average position in the 92 football pyramid since 1958 works out as.

The range will start from 15 and end at 54. Guessing no one with any knowledge of football never mind Palace would think we’d rank higher than 15th or lower than the third tier.

Think we're about 19th in the all time Premier league table, so I've gone for 25th since the 50s

Bumped up a lot this decade, but I can’t see it being better than 30th.

Well I think we've been in the top flight for 20 out of those 62 seasons (excluding this season) if that helps.

So I'm going to plump for 29, sorry, don't know how to participate in polls on the Tapatalk phone app.

It's higher than Brighton that's for sure. (28)

We've not been outside the top two flights for most of this period, so it's gotta be fairly high. 33

Rough maths says a couple of years at 70+ in Div 4, around 7 or 8 in the 50-60 range in Div 3. Offset by 20 years of 22 or lower

38th

...and I think 9 seasons in the promotion / play off places in the second tier. So that's effectively half of the total number of seasons at say 28th or higher. Hope this helps!
