"Between 2001 and 2016 Barclays enjoyed a great partnership with the Premier League as their title sponsor, and banker. They continued the relationship by agreeing to become the Banking Partner of the Premier League until the end of the 2018/19 season, a deal that has been renewed through to the 2021/22 season."
Hmm. I guess old habits die hard. I've been watching for a long time, back to the days of games on Fox. I still hear the pre/postgame game threesome call it the Barclay's Premier League. But since the Evening Standard now calls it the EPL again, I'll gladly acknowledge your point.
Unless they want to continue the season through all of May and June, I'm not sure what they are going to do about relegation. Some teams still have 11 league games to play, and FA Cup, Champions and Eurpoa League games too. And it sucks for Liverpool not to be able to properly celebrate its first title in 30 years.
