With the hot news that some Premier League matches could be played abroad
from 2011to further the league's global appeal, here are some suitably tongue-in
-cheek locations for the 20 current incumbents to call their second home.

Arsenal - Paris

For years people have been saying that Arsene Wenger has been running a
French Embassy at the Gunners so why not pitch up at the Stade de France?

Aston Villa - Rome

Tom Hanks: "What suburb of Rome is Aston Villa from?"

Birmingham - Memphis

Home of the Blues

Blackburn Rovers - Tokyo

Mark Hughes' martial arts brand of football will truly be appreciated in the
homeland of karate.

Bolton - Qatar

Qatar is like a retirement pasture for old Bolton players anyway, so it is a great
way to get them acclimatised.

Chelsea - Moscow

Don't think this one needs spelling out!

Derby County - Auckland

There are apparently four sheep for ever human in New Zealand, so a few lost
Rams won't look out of place.

Everton - Lagos

Seems as good a place as any to start the search for Yakubu!

Fulham - San Francisco

A city that already has its fair share of Cottagers.

Liverpool - Dubai

What better way to woo the investors than playing in their backyard?

Manchester City - Rio de Janeiro

Makes Sven's scouting missions easier.

Manchester United - Calais

Closer than Old Trafford for most United fans.

Middlesbrough - Berlin

A lot of clubs would want to play in the impressive Olympiastadion but it's not
what you know, it's Huth you know.

Newcastle United - Antarctica

Plenty of ready made black-and-white clad fans and a few degrees warmer than
the Geordies are used to.

Portsmouth - Naples

Play up Pompeii...

Reading - Hay-on-Wye

Apparently loads of people go there for reading anyway.

Sunderland - Dublin

Everything else about the club is Irish, including the chairman and manger, so the
home ground might as well be.

Tottenham Hotspur - Dallas

They love Spurs in the Wild West.

West Ham - Marbella

It's the obvious getaway for East End wideboys, innit?

Wigan - Las Vegas

Titus Bramble's Travelling Slapstick Show would be the hottest ticket in town.

On Thursday, the 20 Premier League clubs agreed to look into the possibility of playing an extra round of matches every season - abroad. I'm totally against this decision, and am trying to show that there's a critical mass of fans who don't want their teams going to play an English Premiere League game somewhere outside of England. So I made this poll - and I want to invite people to go and vote and maybe if we get enough votes we can send it to the people in charge. Here's the link:

I am more confident it won't happen now with Sepp Blatter's recent comments.

It's about time someone stood up and said what a stupid idea it is.
