Occam's Razor applies here - we've just not been good enough to win the league since 1990. We've come close a few times, but now we're improving and I would be surprised if we don't challenge for the title for the next few seasons at least.Unfortunately your pet theory doesn’t hold up in the face of the facts. Since the start of the premier league we have had the 3rd highest number of penalties and the 4th highest number of wins. Good stats here https://www.premierleague.com/stats/top/clubs/att_pen_goal?se=-1
If there was a conspiracy to stop us winning the league you would expect those numbers to be very different particularly the number of penalties. Maybe, just maybe, we haven’t been good enough.
