Bloomfield FACT (via Wiki):

“Bloomfield Road hosted its 1,000th Football League game on 10 September 1960, with a visit by Lancashire neighbours Bolton Wanderers. The game was the first to be televised in England. It was broadcast on ITV, billed as The Big Game, and three cameras were sited at the back of the Spion Kop. Coverage was scheduled for the last five minutes of the first half and the whole of the second. The Trotters won by a single goal.”

    Why have you gone back tp this format woth photos?

  2. Ollie says:

    @ Sam – Don’t worry. As I said before, for photo essays – where the order is important – we will use a more traditional clickthrough gallery. The same with Top 10s, where the order of photos does matter somewhat.

    But for pics of matches and training sessions etc. we will use the new thumbnail format.

    Cheers, Ollie
