The Times, Sunday Times and Telegraph now seem to require registration to view articles on their sites, with the Times and Sunday Times charging readers outside the UK. The Times/Sunday Times has also moved some of the older articles into an archive which requires separate registration and requires you to pay to access the content. The Independent now charges for access to articles more than a week old.

The four photographers who trained their long lenses on the directors' box for 10 minutes before the teams came out eventually realised they were wasting their time and set their sights on Kevin Blackwell instead as he approached the dug-out.
Ken Bates had spent four days and nights completing his Geneva-based Forward Sports Fund's #10m takeover of Leeds and opted to put his feet up; but the new chairman had spoken to Blackwell on the morning of the match, introducing himself to the manager, sending his regards and arranging to meet for dinner on Wednesday or Thursday.
"I sat the lads down before the game and said, 'Look, we haven't talked about this before, but this is the day we move forward,'" Blackwell said. "This is a brand-new era, we can start to look upwards as a club and I want to take all of you with me."
