    So, in the end the playoff ended up being between Aarau and Neuchatel Xamax (now managed by Henchoz but he is going to Sion next season)...Aarau won the first leg, in Neuchatel 4-0...so obviously Neuchatel won the return leg in Aarau 4-0...it went to penalties and they saved themselves by winning the shoot-out.

    Saint-Etienne still have the French record (ten) and were out of Liguria 1 as recently as 2004.
    If only - you could have a league encompassing Nice, Genoa, Marseille, Samp, Monaco, among others.

    Shamrock Rovers were briefly in the League of Ireland First Division in 2005, and of course Juventus were forcibly relegated in the same period.

    And in historical terms, Germany had a notable example of this. Nuernberg were the most successful club in the pre-Bundesliga era with 8 titles. They were included in the new national Division on its formation, and won it to add a ninth crown in 1968. And then got relegated the following season! They have never really recovered from that, mostly being a second tier club since then, though they were back in the top flight when Bayern surpassed them for crowns in 1987.

    Norway had this for a number of seasons between the 1970s and 1990s, which marks the decline of Fredrikstad to the rise of Rosenborg. Specfically '73, which was the first time Fredrikstad (9 time champions) had been relegated, non-continuously to '95 when Rosenborg surpassed them for titles. Fredrikstad dropped to the 3rd tier for the first time in 1992 whilst still ahead 9-7 on crowns. They did subsequently make it back to the top flight around a decade ago, and won a cup and were also runners-up once (to a champion other than Rosenborg), but have since declined again and are now back two Divisions down the structure.

    I think Ruch Chorzow are the club with the record number of titles in Poland but they are in the third flight

    Arguably Romania, but that rather depends on which club you think is the "true" Steaua

    Are there any other leagues in Europe where the club with the record number of titles are not in the top flight?

    With four matches to go in the top flight, there are currently only five points between third place (the first of two Europa League qualification spots) and ninth (relegation playoff)

    That's if they can stick to 2nd, Aarau are right behind them...

    Excellent news. Am I right in thinking that Lausanne now face the 9th placed Super League team for the last place in the top flight?

    Pleased to report that the mighty Servette FC is back in the top division, after 3-1 win against second placed Lausanne Sports in front of rather decent 20000 people...
