Reserving my inaugural post for this as I think its deserves it.

Brilliant unbiased coverage from the Guardian that puts all the
other tabloid to shame. ( ps : Love your iPhone app too )

Yep agreed it was great coverage throughout- perhaps the sales of The Guardian will go up on Merseyside now as we are a well educated bunch of people !

well done, and props to rushian, vdm, Southern Pansy and the rest of the mods, theyve done an awesome job in trying to tame and filter out.

Probably the only media outlet that didn't jump on each and every scare mongering story to come out of the woodwork - something anyone with half a brain appreciates, so all in all very well covered.

I've got to this thread a bit late but I agree - this is only extra tab I've had open on my browser the past week.  Superb (almost round the clock) coverage with plenty of humour mixed in to all the seriousness.

Yes. At least Barry Glendenning got nowhere near the live coverage. It has to be said that The Guardian have been resolutely anti-Rafa and pro-Roy for the last few seasons...

Everyone was pro Roy, he did a good job at Fulham.

The Guardian have been guilty of being mean or unfair to Rafa but then they do tend to take the piss out of everyone, even Dark Lord Ferg. Which is nice.

Fantastic stuff from the Guardian - up to the minute coverage with an appropriate amount of sensible analysis... also having the humility to admit confusion when the legalese/claim/counter-claim started to stack up. Helped keep us sane/insane.

Well done!

Fully agree, their coverage has been 1st rate.
He wasn't perfect, he made mistakes. But he was genuine. He had the best interests of the club at heart, and gave us a plethora of successful teams that we should have been thankful for.
