    Complete guesswork, the other Crystal Palace.

    Incorrect.

    One club was expelled and actually forcibly disbanded by the FA for financial irregularities and match-fixing; its successor club was formed directly as a result of this expulsion and is a major team currently playing in the Championship.

    The other club is very obscure, spending three seasons in the Second Division from 1898-1901 before going bankrupt in the summer of 1901 on the eve of the 1901/02 season; the team was from a small town on the Wirral peninsula.

    I just looked them up. I would have got the first eventually by virtue of naming Championship sides. The other, never in a million years.

    It's still guesswork but could that be Bradford? I stopped watching football a while ago so I'm not sure if the current Bradford City play in the Championship or not. I've just got a feeling that the city has had something happen like that in the past.
