The New Premier League Logo

Earlier this week, Premier League published the rebrand of it's logo designed by DesignStudio. Gather round soccer lovers, check out this new logo...

The previous logo had a Lion wearing a crown with its paw on a red soccer ball. The new logo has just a Lion head wearing a crown.

This new design has caused some controversies in the graphic industry already. Some designers think the logo is not as vibrant as the previous design.

The independent soccer league, specifically said there are glitches with the previous logo... PL specifically said the red ball in the logo was tacked, and the wordmark was off. 

So, as a soccer love, as a graphic designer... Which logo would you rather like to see as Premier League's logo?
