It is the Premier League, not the Premiership ...

Why do so many of you still call the Premier League the Premiership?

Its not, its as simple as that, and hasn't been since 2001.

if a product changes its name and then the majority keep using the original name it suggests they got it wrong surely..


bit like us playing in red with a beer mat badge and the public, supporters and many in the media continuing to call us the bluebirds..?

maybe the FA need a chat with Vinnies mum.

Premiership has fewer characters than Premier League.
Easier to type, for us lazy gits. :old:

Edmund: Have you ever been to Wales, Baldrick?
Baldrick: No, but I've often thought that I'd like to.
Edmund: Well don't. It's a ghastly place. Huge gangs of tough, sinewy men roam the valleys terrifying people with their close-harmony singing
