First DivisionEdit

The last-ever First Division before the creation of the Premier League was won by Leeds United, who overhauled Manchester United thanks to the efforts of players like Gordon Strachan, Lee Chapman, David Batty and Gary McAllister. After runners-up Manchester United came newly promoted Sheffield Wednesday, despite suffering the first division's heaviest defeats both home and away.

Defending champions Arsenal slipped to fourth place and never made a serious threat to retain their title. The previous season’s runners-up, Liverpool, slipped to sixth in their first full season under the management of Graeme Souness.

Newly promoted West Ham United were relegated in bottom place, with another newly promoted side – Notts County – following days later. The last day of the season saw Luton Town lose their top-flight status after ten seasons. Twenty seven years later Notts County F.C. would fall out of the Football League and into the Conference, the fifth tier of the English football system. They would also lose their title as the oldest league football team in the world.

Second DivisionEdit

The Second Division title was won by Ipswich Town, John Lyall thus taking the Suffolk club back to the top flight after a six-year absence. Middlesbrough were also automatically promoted as runners-up, but it was play-off winners Blackburn Rovers whose promotion made the biggest headlines. Bankrolled by millionaire chairman Jack Walker and managed by former Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish, Rovers beat Leicester City 1–0 in the play-off final to end a 26-year exile from the top flight.

The relegation places were occupied by Port Vale, Plymouth Argyle and Brighton & Hove Albion – the latter team had been play-off finalists the previous season, but their fortunes had been ruined by financial problems.

Third DivisionEdit

To the surprise of many, new manager Phil Holder guided Brentford to the Third Division title, while Terry Cooper’s Birmingham City occupied runners-up spot and the play-offs were won by Chris Turner’s Peterborough United.

The relegation places were occupied by Shrewsbury Town, Bury, Torquay United and Darlington.

Fourth DivisionEdit

Burnley won the Fourth Division title to join Wolverhampton Wanderers as champions of all four divisions of the Football League. Also promoted were Rotherham United, Mansfield Town and play-off winners Blackpool.

On 25 March 1992, Aldershot were declared bankrupt and obliged to resign from the Football League – their record was expunged. The successor club, Aldershot Town, restored league football to the Hampshire town sixteen years later. Carlisle United eventually finished bottom, but there was no relegation from the Football League in 1991–92 – although Conference champions Colchester United were still promoted, returning to the league after a two-year absence.
