new names for the football league
The Football league has announced new names for its three division. The 2004/05 season will see division 1, 2 and 3 changed to "The Championship", "League 1" and "League 2" respectively.
The Chairman of The Football League Sir Brian Mawhinney announced that the changing of from division 1 to The Championship "will place a new enhanced emphasis on it's status as the pinnacle of our competition".
The new names means that this thread should be called *Official* League 1 thread but to save confusion i will leave it at the current name.
I hope the new name will brighten the financial outlook of the clubs and narrow the gap between The Football League and The Premiership.
