With Cardiff joining Swansea in the Prem, should Football follow Cricket's example?

It's a bloody Welsh revolution! Not since the days of Owen Glendower - rugby apart - have the Leek Lovers had so much to baaa about!

How ironic that, in the year that Thatcher dies, the new Wales - refashioned by Maggie's savage economic policies - should be enjoying such success.

But the football authorities are still dragging their heels in an appalling way. Ten per cent of the Prem next season will be Welsh, so surely the name EPL is no longer acceptable and the product should be rebranded the E&WPL.

And if the Welsh teams do well, maybe the logo should be changed too with that lion replaced by a lovable sheep!

  2. I've never seen anyone drift from one political extreme to the other like you.

    One minute you hate Asians. The next minute you're denouncing Thatcher and claiming we should rebrand the EPL.

    Make your mind up, man!!

  6. If you want to be really pedantic it's not the EPL, the proper title is "The Barclays Premier League"

  7. The correct spelling is Owain Glyndwr.
    Wales was annexed to England in 1536 by the Acts of Union,during the reign of King Henry VIII of England,who came from the Welsh Tudor dynasty.The intention was to create a single state and a single legal jurisdiction.
    In 1909/10 season several teams from Wales were invited to join the English Southern League,Wrexham,Swansea,Newport,Ton Pentre,Merthyr Tydfil,Riverside and Cardiff,later to be joined by Bangor,Barry Town,Caernarfon Town,Newtown and Rhyl in the pyramid system.
    So your somewhat racist comments on Welsh clubs in the English football league system are out of order.

    1. So you are saying there should be no recognition of Welsh participation in the title of the competition? I'm arguing for it!

      By the way, thanks for the History lesson. You should have been a lecturer when I sat my History degree.

  10. Is the author aware that "EPL" is simply an acronym used by journalists too stupid to work out that "PL" means Premier League? It is not, and never has been, called the English Premier League. Do your homework.

    1. Is Scott Mackay aware that the Premiership is branded the EPL abroad? I live in Romania and the EPL is everywhere!
