So The Football League is being re-branded as the English Football League (EFL).

Don't like it myself; sounds a bit too much like the EDL. And The Football League had worked ok as a name for quite a while I thought....

Having said that I like the logo.

I liked the way it was THE Football League, much like it is THE Football Association. The original. Certainly no longer the best, but certainly the original.

Bit of a shame really.

If it ain't broke, don't tamper. Dislike the name for the same reason you outline James. Big :thumbdown: from me.

Shameless attempt at rebranding to bring the name in line with the EPL, as it's known internationally.

Don't mind the logo actually, but hate the abbreviation and name.

Awful name, and they're sticking with Championship, League 1 and League 2, the most confusing names. People sometimes refer to us being in the first division which is just ridiculous. We are currently in the third division!
