EPL's a separate entity under a different governing body, there's no links between the two in any sense. It's the second tier as you said, and the gap in quality between them is big.

Two have tried (Knights, Racers) and failed. Simplest answer is that there's no facility in the city fit for a professional team since the Docklands Arena was demolished. I expect there'll be a team and facility in place for the 2015/16 season though.
