The league's official name is constantly changing. First it was the FA Carling Premiership.

In 2001 it became the Barclaycard Premiership.

In 2004 it became the Barclays Premiership.

And in 2007 it became the Barclays Premier League.

So technically Blackburn have only won it under the old incarnation..

Always amazes me how many lazy journalists and pundits still refer to it as the Premiership.

So my take is that Liverpool have never won the Premiership, then.

Not just them, but any guy you meet in a pub or work with as well.

It winds me up more than it should.
