Footballing excellence in Black Country

Privileged to help the The Express & Star and Shropshire Star launch their 16-page football supplement on Monday. With five teams in the Premier League, the papers have cranked up their football coverage in both print and online. The coverage includes a fans' forum for each club, cross-reffing to further comments online; the key moments of each game accompanied by a chalkboard diagram; a talking point; a new column by Ron Atkinson; some offbeat/fanzine type features and comprehensive stats. Great fun to do and the result looks splendid. Editor of the Express & Star Adrian Faber dropped me and my colleague Mike Brough a note to say: "Supplement looks fantastic! Thanks for everything." No problem. ... we really enjoyed it.
