An impressive body of work there TS - just in research alone - while also framing it as eloquently as interestingly as you do.

I thoroughly enjoyed each and every one Tim, thank you. I particularly enjoyed the pieces describing our title victories in the 30's. I learnt so much from them and could finally get a real sense of feeling from the stories that my Grandfather shared with me. Thanks again.

Excellent work, Tim. The amount of time and effort you put into these articles is impressive. OT: City pay 25m for Milner while Real Madrid pay 23m combined for both Ozil & Khedira. One player did nothing at the wc while the other 2 impressed the world. And people wonder why Wenger doesn't buy English (tho he's always trying--witness his failed attempt for Jagielka).
