    Default Ever seen a team's fortunes change this rapidly?

    While I've been playing my current save I had a check on the Premier Division after a few seasons and noticed something quite odd.

    Season 1



    Season 2



    Season 3



    West Brom finishing in the top 6 in season 1, losing out on the title on goal difference on the final day in season 2 and being relegated in season 3!

    I just wanted to see if anybody else had seen a team's fortunes change that much within a couple of season?

    Also, Everton being relegated seemed rather odd to me.

    Sampdoria pulled off the same trick in the 2010/11 season after finishing 4th the previous year.

    Didn't Villareal do something similar this time around? Qualified for CL last season and relegated this time....

    I always find that in the Premier League (and in other first divisions around Europe), that when you load the league but don't actually play in it, you get some really random things happening like very unlikely teams doing exceptionally well, and some really big teams hopelessly underachieving. Whereas if you actually play in the league (and therefore all matches in the league are simulated at full detail) then things seem to occur far less randomly, but rather more predictably. Bigger teams doing well, lesser teams not massively overachieving, ect.

    They lost in the playoff final in season 2 although they won the league in season 3 so are now back in the Premiership.

    In my most recent save, Everton was relegated, and they've been in the second tier for 3 seasons now. I almost feel bad enough for them to want to take them over.

    In 1937 Manchester City won the league title and were relegated the season after.
