So many vanilla and bland articles from 'football league world' - can we pick and choose a bit more? There's so little genuine substance in so many of those articles and they seem to be everywhere. They're watered down and frankly boring reads, all taken off a template generic writing style it feels. I'd be nice to have quality over quantity.

Grimmer starting to become a bit of a journeyman after high hopes in the early days.  Ainsworth gave him two year contract yet has hardly played.  Been injured?

Sorry, definitely not aimed at discrediting the work you do and have done. You're well aware that what you do has tremendous value and I have complimented and thanked you a lot in the past to exentuate this point. The majority of the context of that point was more frustration based at football league world and not the daily Fulham stuff. However, I think it's fair to have a moderate critical view on the amount of stuff that's started to come up from football league world and believe their quality in pieces lacks significantly enough. At one point they were using Charlie Jones sports as a source which many on this board have agreed seems to be a kid in the beginning of a fledgling career if not life in general such were the basic merits of his writings.

My understanding, although exceptionally limited and it could be wrong, is that a decision still needs to be made with regards to each article as it's not an automated process - if anything I'm encouraging you to save time if that is the case?
