[quote:8e78faa257="memil"]oh, the canaries! been a while since they played top division football.. mid 90s something?
We last had a season in the Prem in 04/05. We are currently top of league 1 (division 3) and still averaging gates of 25,000. Hopefully one day we'll be back in the top flight...[/quote:8e78faa257]
Jim, maybe you can shed some light on this as it was before my time following English football, but what was the original idea behind the Premier League? My instincts tell me nothing but greed (and I know our very own David Dein played a big part in it). Seems like the old first, second, third, and fourth division would work just fine without a need for premier leagues and championships.
When I try to explain to people here that League 1 = division 3 I just get blank stares.
