'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Premiership Prevails

If you're following the mainstream media, you surely know the Premiership is the best league in the world. Or at least that's what they're telling us.

I don't want to go into a debate about it and I don't want to state whether it's the most entertaining or the least entertaining major league. One thing is clear, however: only England had four representatives in the group stages of the Champions League and all these clubs finished top of their groups.

I must state again, I do not want to jump on the Premiership-hype bandwagon. But surely you have noticed how well English clubs do in European competitions recently. I mean, Liverpool's triumph, then Arsenal's great march, Middlesbrough's appearance in the UEFA Cup final. I do not wish to investigate the reasons as I'm afraid I'd not be able to find satisfactory answers to my questions but the facts are there to see. No wonder Sir Alex Ferguson thinks a British team will win the Champions League.

'It is fantastic for British football,' said the Boss. 'I think one of the British teams can win and I just hope it is us. I think the team is confident of their ability now.

'They know they can win games and can play and there were a lot of moments last night when I think we played some fantastic stuff.'

I also hope it is us and the point I'm trying to make is that why couldn't we win it? It seems British teams are thoroughly enjoying themselves on the international stage this time (look at the UEFA Cup where Blackburn, Spurs and Newcastle are all set to go through) and we have the extra motivation of the memories of last season. With this kind of drive and with little (or a bit more) luck I really think we can go all the way to Athens.

Winning the Premiership remains the priority though, especially after seeing its representatives marching steadily in Europen competitions. It would be a great glory to win such a league... and there we are, I've just contributed to the hype surrounding the Premiership despite all my best efforts. Sorry, guys, I let you down now.
