They think it's all over... and they would be correct in that assumption.

Next week, Manchester Rovers fans will be celebrating, as not only have they won this season's premier football league, but they have won the English football. After 123 years and countless thousands of matches, the winners of the entire football league will finally be decided once and for all, and the Rovers have won it with a week to spare!

It's been an exciting century and a quarter. When Billy "Ball" Ball set up the 123-year format league in 1888, there were many detractors who said he'd never survive to see the winner. And they were right.

There have been wins, losses and even a few draws, but nobody can say that the scores haven't been exciting. There have been 2-1 wins, 3-1 losses, even 4-4 draws, although on average most games have been 0-0 unless a goal has been scored before the final whistle.

The final match of the final season will be played next Sunday morning at 4am between London City and Birmingham New Street. The final set of matches have been staggered all over the weekend to allow fans to enjoy their last weekend of footballing action, or "the ball" as they like to call the popular sport.

Many fans have said they will miss football, but others whose team failed to win will be selling their scarves and replica kits on Monday morning.

But for those sports fans who will never ever get to see an English football match again, a new national tiddlywinks league will be set up as a replacement in August.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
