Is the Football League everything the Premier League should be?Watch this thread
Even in League One, you have 4 teams on 37pts queuing up for a play-off spot. League 2 has 5 teams on 30pts being dragged into a relegation dogfight.
It really is an 'anyone can beat anyone' league. And the gap in quality and money from Premier League to Football League seems to be growing. It's often described as the most difficult league to get out of as it's such a relentless slog. No warm weather training, just cold, gritty, English football.
I always see the Premier League as being 'too European' whereas the football league and lower to be more British.
Blues have turned their season right round though, they were in the **** at the start and a few wins later they could now be promoted.
Must be quite good following a lower league club and not having to put up with a lot of the nonsense you get in Premier League football.
since my team were relegated a few seasons ago I have enjoyed watching the premier league a lot more. unless you support a top 6 side it's a pretty depressing league to be in.
The FL is, of course, full of twists and turns and old fashioned grounds and players. It's the nostalgia factor which keeps it so relevant, really. The standard is so far below the PL, though. I have been to a few Championship matches over the last couple of years and they have been of poor quality - but anybody who goes down from the PL will likely go back up now due to parachute payments.
Taking away all the glitz and glamour, the Premier League seems quite....boring? Imo the top flight would be so much better and more interesting if it was exactly how the Championship is.
Premier League = Soap opera with prima donna drama queens.
I been to nearly as many Football League games as I have been to Aston Villa games this season.
