British Football League Champions - Alternative History 1889 - 2017

 I took a few hours to do this. But I think it was worth it. 

This is looking at if the Scottish, English, Welsh, and Northern Irish Leagues did not exist, and instead the British League had started in 1889 with Scottish, Welsh, English and Irish (then Northern Irish after Irish independence) sides were allowed to join.

I do not support the Scottish, English, Welsh, and Northern Irish Leagues merging. I am an Aberdeen, and Inverness fan. We would do nothing in a modern day British League system nowadays. Plus Scotland would lose a major way of showing it’s identity to the rest of the world. But I have done this list to decide who would have been British champions in an age where the Scottish and English leagues merged.

I have also added a bit of couner history with the fact that if Northern Ireland has been part of a British League, the Northern Irish teams would have been bigger. Plus I have added an imaginary team called Dublin Irish Celtic United, to represent Republic of Ireland football before independence.

Plus I have taken into account, how much bigger sides from Scotland and Northern Ireland would be with British Premiership TV money.

I've done the same for the Northern Cascadian Football League

2013 - Fintleboggan United

2014 - Fintleboggan United (a great team that one)

2015 - Dinglevenkyback Wanderers

2016 - Humberton AFC

2017 - Gherkinverse Town

Lots of controversy after Gherkinverse Town were bought over by billionaire Eduard Sherbebenzde from the former Soviet state of Gibrovia, especially given he made all his money in dangerous Plandivarium mining.

So the addition of Scottish, Irish and Welsh diddy teams means that Manchester United win the league in a year that they didn't previously win the league.

I say old boy, do you need help?

Aside from the fact that his list of league winners is utterly preposterous, you are yourself committing a fairly huge logical fallacy.

Oh indeed old chap, I have a large fallacy.

But here is my list, northern powerhouse of Rochdale strangles at birth the so called "Old Firm" - Scotland enters a century long period of peace and prosperity with minimal spousal abuse and street assaults until one day in 1979 when the ITV network cancels Charlie Endell Esq and this leads to the destruction of Glasgow via a tactical nuclear strike by the new independent state of Lewis.
