We (by which I mean those who remain next season), will be part of the EFL - The English Football League, as part of a rebrand. HOW EXCITING.

What does it entail? A change of name and some snazzy new matchball's and graphics no less. The punters will be flying through the doors to pay £39 at Sheffield Wednesday and £21 to sit in our away end (if we remain, lol), in this exciting new competition.

What a load of crap.

too close to EDL for my liking, coincidence? I think not
Have it on good authority that EDL is the defenders equivalent of the Goalkeepers Union. Sort of like the Stonemasons from the Simpsons, but with Zat Knight and Steve McNulty.

I'm sure this is exactly what the FL were hoping for. Within 45 minutes, the topic has changed from the re-branding to the how big an influence the French were during the disco movement.

Excellent stuff.

"The EFL name will be accompanied by a stunning new visual identity featuring a dynamic circular arrangement of 72 balls in three swathes of 24, representing each of the League’s member clubs and the respective divisions they play in"

Fuck off, I could have come up with that on paint within five minutes. I hate the term 'BPL' as it is. At least have the divisions EFL 1, EFL 2, EFL 3 and a brand spanking new EFL 4 including the 'National League' with a 3 up 3 down system.

Adding the conference would be more than a mere rebranding though as I'm sure the people that run the Conference want it to have its own identity.

They'll want to try better next time then.

Because the 'National League' clearly isn't sticking ;)

Makes no real difference does it. Someone asks what league your team is in and you say League Two. Football League or now English Football League is very rarely said.

Even Sky go with FL72

Thing is, I'm sure that's what people said when they introduced Championship/League One/League Two, and probably when they introduced the Premier League and changed the 3 divisions below. Majority of people will be using "EFL" in 5-6 years time, people get completely overpowered by branding and don't even realise it.
