Get's my Goat
« on: July 22, 2021, 10:14:44 AM »
WHY is it now called EFL EPL????? It's the Football League and the Premiership. There are Welsh teams in there too. So annoying. Do they think we don't know we are British????

I am English first English second and English last.
It is an English League in England with English clubs, the Welsh are guests. British has nothing to do with it. 
Also it is not Premiership that is Rugby it is Premier League.
The E in EPL and EFL stands for English because it is an English League.
The Welsh and Scots have their Leagues we have our English League.
British has nothing to do with the English league in the same way it has nothing to do with the other leagues.
We are an English League and let’s hope it stays that way, as it goes all the way down the English football pyramid.

This Goat of yours is it an escaped Goat or Scapegoat.

You are certainly no more English than me, or many on here. However, we never had the need to state it was English, because that was a given. It's like it's been made an International recognition.

As for the Goat, it's penned next to the sheep which can get confusing at night.

So glad to hear you're English, but whether you like it or not Mr Woolly, you are also British. If you don't believe me look at the cover of your passport. :54:

How many Weetabix did you have this morning?

The English League states it is English in the same way the other Leagues state their nationality’s what is wrong with that.
There is no British football team unless you include the Olympics and their all English, because the others don’t want to play on our side so what does that tell you, they are the enemy within the Trojan Horse.
So please do not mention British and football in same sentence.
I have a British passport but I am English, British means I could be anybody, and I am not I am English. The Cross of St George goes threw me like a stick of Rock, it is not even a United Kingdom.
I was born in England live in England work in England die in England and will be buried in a bone yard in England..

St George was born in Turkey to Greek parents!!!! Not very English Mr Woolly.
You say don't mention British and football and yet we have the British Lions in Rugby, so why not have the same in football?
However much you don't like it, you come under the umbrella of being British.
I take it you have researched your family tree and there is no other nationality is in your bloodline. Whether we like it or not we are all a mix of nationalities.
You never go abroad for holidays because you are so English you don't like foreign ways? Is that because they don't serve Chelsea supporters fried with chips and Heinz Tomato Ketchup??? lol You do make me laugh Mr Woolly. 064.gif 064.gif 064.gif 064.gif 064.gif 064.gif

As I am the oldest person on the planet I do not need a history lesson. I was a Crusader, preach to the Welsh and Scots but not to me. Never try and put words in my mouth. Rugby is not what we are talking about. It is English Football.
My favourite holiday destination is Sardinia, I have been all over the world during my employment, and I have made love to all their women and drunk their beer.
My eating habits are between myself and my stomach. I looked up my family tree and found out I was the Sap.
There were two trees next to each other in a forest, and the first tree said to the second tree, “ you are the son of a Beech”, and the second tree replied “ and you are the son of a Birch “
As for making you laugh, I always wanted to be a stand up comedian but I just couldn’t stand up.
Keep me English to my dying day

Exactly.

All the re-branding does not change what it should be and should have remained.
I do understand that the prem is not really the same management but division one had so much more resonance and authority than the PR fest that is the prem.

That is your funeral. Whatever floats your boat, but it is an English Football League that is the point.

Agreed - and all the better for it.  Rebranding has a lot to answer for.   And the EPL, EFL etc - how many 'E' players play in it?

As I haven't got a clue what this thread is about, I feel perfectly placed to make a definitive professional statement....As a read historian, Custer didn't fight the Germans for nothing, and another thing - In the battle of Waterloo, we fought that old enemy the Vietnamese until we were victorious......

my only dislike is the "championship"...  I always call it the SECOND division. (also third and fourth division).

It’s a global ‘product’, and ultimately it is an English league. Wales have their own league from which they can qualify for Europe etc. Cardiff, Swansea, Newport and Wrexham are simply guests. Similarly Berwick play in the Scottish league as guests, meaning the Scottish league is also technically a ‘British’ league…..
