I noticed that there are only American sports here,  so thought I'd start a thread about one of  the world's most popular football /soccer leagues. :)

I think he or she was trying not to confuse people as American's call football "soccer" and what we call American football they call "football".

Anyway, I think we (Newcastle United) will be back next year, under Benitez. Pity in some ways - the Championship is much less stressful!

I was only messing. Its just funny any sport that's not started in US and popular world wide they call a different name.

Don't understand how you got relegated anyway. Maybe it's for the parachute payments. Tens of Millions for relegation.

It's to big of an English club to be second teir for to long. If there doing well ni the championship the attendance will go up, along with cash flow. Depends if its invested back into the team, else you'lll be known as a yo yo team

It's not premier league, but we're premier off the park.  Anyway, good old Bermondseys finest on a 2 game win streak! League one shaping up to be the tightest of the 4. I predict Millwall to make it to the top 2 if we get back fully on track. NOLU!

Millwall in the premier league would be a good day out.  Probably kick off most games, especially with the teams like Chelsea ,Tottenham, Swansea Stoke   etc. Can't see them doing what Blackpool did a few seasons ago. Back to back promotion to the PL. Would be good though if they did and I don't even support them, just think its funny some of the stuff the fans do.

I would love it, but I can't see it, we're a shadow of the late 80's early 90's team. Lots of people forget Teddy Sheringham spent most of his career at the Den too! Yeah, we've no shame, we'll attack segregation lines and toe to toe the filth wherever possible, you don't even see the OB at the Den much, not in the stands anyway. Last time I was at Chelsea we pumped them out the league cup 1996, it was lovely!

@PTFC Teddy sheringham was a legend. Didn't release myself he played for Millwall. I rember him coming to Man U after leaving Tottenham. Also when he played for England.  Sheringham and shearer aka SaS probably one of the best England striker partnership I have seen.

Yeah, 1983-91, scored 93 goals in 220 appearances, when we got relegated in 91, sold him to Forest, and then he went on to Spurs. He was our record scorer for years until the current gaffer Neil Harris overtook his record. One of the best finishers I've ever seen, and amazing with Shearer.

Shearer was immense. Could slam the ball in the net from a variety of distances/angles, and his heading skills were amazing too. I am a Newcastle fan, but he was a fantastic player.

On to the Champions League, how amazing was the City result against Barcelona? Pep is gradually getting the best out of his players! I like City, were nothing for years, and their fans aren't as big headed as other 'monied' clubs.

What irks me most is you get paid LOTS more for finishing in the bottom of the premiership or in the top end of the championship,compaired to winning the Scottish premiership.I know more people around the globe are more interested in the English premiership but the gulf in money is HUGE!!

Ps I love the English premiership also but I just find the distribution of money far too great in difference.

Peace 

Bliss....

It's all to do with money. TV rights (Sky BT)  which makes every single prem team filthy rich in comparison. There are only two Scottish teams really known around the world whereas the EPL I think only Real Madrid and Barca are more famous than the top 5-6 teams. 

They look at the stars playing in the league, the competitiveness and fixture whereas Dundee v Inverness on a Friday night isn't going to cut it.

Dont get me wrong I'm Scottish and completely agree but what we need to do is focus on the youth academies and bringing through talent that way. Hibs used to be successful at it, Falkirk are brilliant, Rangers have one of the best facilities in the world (don't get me started on the lack of well anyone of note) We're never going to command massive TV right but that is the way forward. Llook at Ajax, Porto etc. 

 

i'll irk you some more. The bottom three teams who are relegated from the EPL receive umbrella payments when they drop down. So they will still earn initially what they would if they were still in the premiership. WOW!

The Championship is the wealthiest non-top flight football division in the world and the seventh richest division in Europe. - Wiki, but I already knew that. ;)

Just look at Newcastle (forget about the weekend they've been spectacular). They obviously don't deserve to be down there but they are owned by satan. They have arguably one of the best/most successful managers in world football and 50000+ attendances, premiership class players . Aston villa have won the European cup for goodness sake.. albeit a long time ago. They're so many teams with the financial clout it makes Scottish football look like the amateurs. The money is astronomical
