like the title says, have you ever won the league with a mid table team and how long did it take?
it doesnt just have to be england it can be in spain germany, italy etc....
I have built many sides that became eventual champions. I've never been so successful to take a non-league side to such heights but my greatest was with Swansea City.
It took me 15 seasons to eventually win the league. I had a strict off-field policy by always trying to improve there before on the pitch so the club was up there with the United's and City's and turned a huge profit as they built a 60,000 stadium (which i was gutted about not being named after me!) My great regret though was leaving as soon as I won the league.
my fastest to this day is back in FM 07 with ipswich, promoted to premier league first season, i think 5th or 4th in first season in premier league, won in 2nd. since then it has taken a longer time to build up. dont remember anything faster than that if u dont consider big teams obviously.
