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.

With Ken Bates using his Chairman's View column in the programme to bemoan Leeds's recent inconsistency, Kevin Blackwell's position might conceivably have been in jeopardy had they lost here. Instead the home manager was left basking in the kudos engendered by Rob Hulse's first-half hat-trick and some exhilarating left-wing play from Eddie Lewis as Leeds emphasised their promotion credentials.
The only shame was that Bates's insistence on raising ticket prices dictated that it was watched by a mere 18,353, Elland Road's lowest league crowd for 16 years, which was arguably one of the reasons why Blackwell body-swerved the post-match press conference.
"I understand it's difficult for some fans and it was a filthy night," said Sam Ellis, Blackwell's assistant. "But I'd sooner give credit to those that do come."
