    A well deserved accolade!

    Saw the article this morning flicking through WSC in WH Smiths. Many congratulations, you deserve it, what with the consistent quality of your site. With so many dreadful football blogs out there, this is truly a haven. Thank you for all your hard work. It is greatly appreciated, and is something to aspire to.

  3. Keith says:

    For some reason, I read that last bit as “wearing a crown & urine”.

    Strange world…

    (Well done).

  4. Fredorrarci says:

    Congratulations, sir. You deserve all the recognition you get.

  5. Very many congratulations – definitely well deserved.

    Thoroughly Deserved Award!
    Well written articles and all the background one could want. I always find your site an interesting and informative place to visit.
    Your “Clubs in Crisis” section fascinates me in particular and makes me thankful that, as a AFC Wimbledon supporter, I DO have a say in the destiny of my own (and I mean that!) club.
    Hope to see an AFC Chester or Kings Lynn rise from the ashes in the future. You can do it!

  7. Lloyd says:

    Well done, Ian. Very much deserved. That, and a mention in the Guardian last week, is some feat!

  8. voxra says:

    Well done, you! Thoroughly deserved.

    Interesting times ahead – will we see a King’s Lynn est 1879, a Chester Whatsit? We’ll probably find out from you – and that’s why you’re so important.

    P.S. Pauline England’s family very much appreciated this: – thank you.

  9. Tom says:

    Congratulations on a fine score-draw with us, sir!

    Seriously, I was delighted to see you get the accolade you deserve. Keep it up.

  10. Jonathan says:

    Hugely merited award for all the effort you put into what is without doubt one of the best football websites around, and I include the mainstream ones in that. Congratulations!

  11. Paul says:

    Thoroughly deserved. Keep up the good work.

  12. Jertzee says:

    As a reader of WSC since the first issue, 200% is the only other football related website or mag that I read on a regular (make that daily) basis.


  13. Alan J says:

    Congrats on your award from WSC from another subscriber.

    The articles on your site are always an excellent read.

    Well done Ian and everyone associated with twohundredpercent – well deserved and thanks again for continuing to allow us AFC Wimbledon to reproduce some of your excellent articles within our matchday programme.

  16. Paul D says:

    Well deserved. An excellent blog and “must read” for anyone interested English football at pretty much any level

  17. Joe says:

    Well done Ian, from a long-time reader / first-time poster. Your articles, unlike many around the football world, are not focused on one league, nation or theme and cover a myriad of topics and the site and its articles are all the richer for it.

    I first found my way to your little corner of t’interweb when I stumbled upon your article “In Praise Of… Matthew Le Tissier”. Being a Saints fan, it was nice to read something other than just the banal, gushing platitudes which are normally written about him. I started perusing the past articles and since then, yours is the first site on my lunchtime roll-call of interet sites.

    Keep up the good work, and many congratulations on a thorougly deserved award.

    As an Antipodean frequenter of the site I thoroughly enjoy the diverse, yet insightful take on a large number of footballing issues that are published.

    It certainly makes a change from the saturation of ‘Top Four’ only stories we seem to get over here in this rugby mad country of ours (NZ).

    The plaudits are well deserved.

    Well done that man.
