Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Arsenal

Arsenal were one of the founder members of the FA Premier League in the 1992-93 season, having finished the previous season in fourth place. In their first Premier League season, Arsenal ended up in tenth place, 28 points behind eventual champions Manchester United. However, they have since gone on to become one of the most successful clubs of the Premier League era, including going unbeaten for the whole of their title-winning 2003-04 season.

The visual clue here comes from the fact that Arsenal's nickname is "The Gunners", and they incorporate a large gun on their badge.
2. Chelsea

Chelsea were one of the founder members of the FA Premier League in the 1992-93 season, having come fourteenth the previous season. In their first Premier League season, Chelsea ended up in eleventh, one place behind Arsenal and 28 points behind the champions Manchester United. However, since then they have gone on to be one of the most successful clubs of the Premier League era.

The visual clue here comes from the fact that the Royal Hospital Chelsea, home of the famous scarlet-coated Chelsea Pensioners, is close to the club's home of Stamford Bridge, and the club provides free tickets for the Hospital's in-pensioners to attend home games.
3. Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace were one of the founder members of the FA Premier League in the 1992-93 season, having completed the previous season in tenth. In their first Premier League season, however, Crystal Palace ended in eighteenth place, becoming one of the first three clubs to be relegated out of the Premier League. Over the course of the Premier League's first thirteen seasons, Crystal Palace were promoted and relegated to and from the top flight a further three times, not lasting more than a season in the Premier League.

The visual clue here comes from the club's nickname, "The Eagles", which they incorporate on their badge, along with a representation of the building that gives the club its name. For a decade from 2010, the club also displayed a bald eagle as their mascot at every home game.
4. Queens Park Rangers

Queens Park Rangers (QPR) were one of the founder members of the FA Premier League in the 1992-93 season, having finished 11th in the previous season. In their first Premier League season they finished in fifth place, the highest ranked London club that season. The first few seasons in the Premier League were reasonably successful, as the club followed up its fifth-place in the first Premier League season with two successive top-ten finishes. However, the 1995-96 season saw the club relegated from the top flight for the first time since 1983. QPR remained out of the Premier League for fifteen years until they won promotion in 2011. They lasted in the top flight for two seasons before suffering relegation again in 2013. They won another promotion in 2014, but this time lasted just a single season before suffering relegation again.

The visual clue comes from the club's name, Queen's Park Rangers, which comes from Christchurch Rangers, one of the two clubs that in 1886 merged to form QPR.
5. Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur were one of the founder members of the FA Premier League in the 1992-93 season, having finished the previous season in fifteenth place. In their first Premier League season, Tottenham ended up eighth, 25 points behind eventual champions Manchester United. During the first decade of the Premier League, the club's fortunes fluctuated, finishing as high as seventh and as low as fourteenth. Subsequent to this, the club had greater success in the league with regular top ten finishes from 2009 onwards, culminating in a third-place finish behind Arsenal and champions Leicester City in 2016.

The visual clue comes from the cockerel that the club has on its badge, which derives from the name "Hotspur", taken from the nickname of Sir Henry Percy; Percy was so-named from his vigorous use of his spurs when riding, akin to fighting cocks using the spurs on the backs of their legs.
6. Wimbledon

Wimbledon were one of the founder members of the FA Premier League in the 1992-93 season, having finished the previous season in thirteenth place. In their first Premier League season, Wimbledon finished in twelfth place, 30 points behind eventual champions Manchester United. Wimbledon were a club at a significant disadvantage during the Premier League era compared to their rivals, as the 1992-93 season was their first spent ground-sharing with Crystal Palace, as their Plough Lane ground was not of good enough quality for the new league. Despite this, Wimbledon maintained their Premier League status until 2000, when they were relegated for the first time since 1986. Relegation proved to be a financial disaster for the club, and in 2003 the Football League gave permission for the club's new owner to move it to Milton Keynes, located 70 miles from London. Wimbledon's existence officially ended in June 2004 when the club was renamed as Milton Keynes Dons. At the same time, a group of Wimbledon fans formed a new club, AFC Wimbledon. In 2012, the two clubs played each other for the first time in an FA Cup tie.

The visual clue here comes from the presence in Wimbledon of the All-England Lawn Tennis Club, the venue for the annual Wimbledon Championship.
7. West Ham United

West Ham United were one of the first teams to gain promotion to the Premier League after it was established, having finished second in the 1992-93 First Division. The club's first season in the Premier League, 1993-94, saw them finish thirteenth, after which there was slow progress that saw three successive top ten finishes, which included a fifth-place finish in 1999, but also flirtations with relegation, which eventually came in 2003. West Ham spent two seasons in the second tier before winning promotion in 2005. The club spent six successive seasons in the Premier League before a second relegation came in 2011. This lasted a single season before gaining promotion again in 2012.

The visual clue comes from the club's badge of a pair of crossed shipbuilding hammers; this does not derive from the club's name, West Ham, but from its genesis as the works team of the Thames Ironworks shipbuilding company in Canning Town. Although the team is known by others as "The Hammers", the nickname that tends to be used by the club and its fans is "The Irons", also stemming from Thames Ironworks.
8. Charlton Athletic

Charlton Athletic's first season in the Premier League came following their promotion in 1997-98. However, the club only remained in the top flight for only a single season, finishing eighteenth and being relegated. However, they returned to the Premier League for a second time after just a single season away, and were able to consolidate themselves as a mid-table side, not finishing lower than fourteenth, and with a pair of top ten finishes over the course of seven seasons. But, in 2006-07, the club ended the season in nineteenth place and suffered their second relegation out of the Premier League. Since their relegation, Charlton have assumed the mantle of "yo-yo" club, suffering five promotions and relegations, between the second and third tiers, over the next 15 years.

The visual clue relates to Charlton's stadium, The Valley; the club had been forced to leave the stadium in 1985, returning following a major local and fans campaign in 1991. One of the fans' best known chants relates to The Valley, and is sung to the tune of "Mull of Kintyre" by Wings.
9. Fulham

Fulham first gained promotion to the Premier League in the 2000-01 season, their first in the top flight since 1968. The club was immediately able to consolidate their position in the Premier League, cementing a place as a solid mid-table side, with only two seasons where they were in serious danger of relegation, most notably in 2007-08, when survival was assured with just fifteen minutes of the final game of the season remaining. Fulham retained a place in the Premier League until the 2013-14 season, when they finished nineteenth to suffer relegation back to the Football League. The club spent four years out of the top flight before securing promotion back to the Premier League in 2018. However, they have since suffered successive promotions and relegations since then, with relegation in 2019, promotion in 2020, and relegation in 2021.

The visual clue stems from the name of the club's stadium, Craven Cottage, so named for the a royal hunting lodge that was on the site; part of the ground is the so-called "cottage" in the north-east corner, which contains both the changing rooms and clubhouse. Fulham's nickname, "The Cottagers", also stems from the name of their stadium.
10. Brentford

Brentford became the 50th Premier League club, and the tenth from London, when they gained promotion following the 2020-21 season. Getting into the Premier League for the 2021-22 season made it their first in the top flight since 1947. During the period of more than seventy years outside the top flight, Brentford were as low as the fourth tier of English football on a number of occasions, most recently as late as 2009. However, since then the club has had a steady and meteoric rise, culminating in success in the 2021 Championship play-off final which gave them their place in the Premier League.

The visual clue stems from the club's nickname of "The Bees" - this came about through a misunderstanding in the 1890s, when a group of student fans from the local Borough Road College shouted "Buck up B's", the college's chant, in support of their friend who played for the club. This was reported by newspapers as "Buck up Bees", with the nickname sticking. In 2017, the club unveiled a new badge that incorporated a bee for the first time.
