    What all of us ? You are treated the same as any wum, with sarcasm and derision , if you can't handle don't post it! You got the same kind of reception from Cardiff fans with a thread like this, I mean what has it got to do with them ?

    Wiki is full of the personal opinions of people, so not really something to be taken as gospel, as you have indicated above.

    So using your crap logic, if we started calling it the Welsh Premier League enough, it would not be a falsehood to quote that on wiki....doesn't make it right though. **** it, lets start doing it!

    I'm inclined to to think that the Barclays Premier League is an English League and part of the English Pyramid System. This has some Welsh clubs, with Swansea having been there from almost the beginning. But apart from the few Welsh clubs in the system there is no way for other Welsh teams to enter the system via promotion.

    If a team from Poland joined the German League, we'd all still call it the German League. We wouldn't call it the German and Polish League.

    I think the Barclays Premier League is an English Premier League that allows a few select Welsh Clubs in it. It may also allow Celtic and Rangers one day.

    Just because Swansea are there doesn't suddenly make it non-English. Swansea is just the exception.

    The reason it is called the Barclays Premier League and not the English Premier League is for sponsorship reasons. Barclays want people around the world to link their name with the league. But if you're trying to promote the Premier League in Asia and other regions, where no-one has heard of Barclays, then the fans there will call it the English Premier League, because Barclays is meaningless to them.

    It couldn't be called the English and Welsh Premier League, because Wales has it's own Premier League (it might be called something different).

    I will probably cop a lot of flak for this, but just think about it from the position of someone who's neither English or Welsh? It is clearly an English League system that has a few Welsh teams. And I think the Welsh system has one or two English teams.

    Should Welsh teams be allowed to play in it? Of course they should. Because the Barclays Premier League and English Pyramid System doesn't have any rules that bar teams from outside England. Even a French team could play in it.

    This should be about football, not petty nationalism. Any great league should want the best teams playing in it. And at the moment Swansea are one of those best teams.

    finally a reasonable answer...
    by the way who are the two english teams in the welsh league...
    if CELTIC or rangers want to play in a decent league they should have to start qualifying from the bottom leagues and not just be put into the prem...
    euro football or accrington stanley..
    cant see anything happening soon

    I don't think you understand that all you have to do is make an account and you can edit Wikipedia, I could edit it right now so it was called the Welsh Premier League, so then you would be in the wrong league, right?

    LOL. One teacher edited Wikipedia before handing out homework and then checked how many of his pupils had the wrong answer - most of them.

    But to be fair, your edit wouldn't stay for long, as more senior people are in charge of the different sections, and they would just change it back.
