    Well done, Gaffer.

    Like I told you, the website really did some great things during the World Cup. You guys took it to a new level.

    Excellent coverage guys! BTW Chris how difficult would it be to link the Google plus comments into here I think does it (embarrassed to admit I occasionally venture on there)

  4. Smokey Bacon says:

    You’re welcome Gaffer :)

  5. jtm371 says:

    Great job WST is the go to site for all things FOOTBALL :) Thanks again for all the hard work and bring on the EPL!

  6. Mufc77 says:

    I can’t remember the last time I even looked at ESPNs site for football news. It’s Republik of Mancunia for Utd news and WST everything else football related. Keep up the great work gaffer.

  7. Jeff says:

    Well done Christopher and all the staff associated with WST for the impressive numbers achieved during the World Cup. The website did well in not providing plenty to read/comment each day, but also numerous different angles and perspectives on topics that other websites didn’t explore.

    Hopefully it’s full steam ahead towards another hopefully memorable European football season!

    and say thank you to drudge.
