John's articles always seem like they have been put together effortlessly even when you know they are down to his meticulous research and encyclopedic knowledge of the club.

When I think of H&V writers over the years I’ve looked for I immediately think of John and Peter Aldridge. Thanks for helping us far flung Villa fans keep the faith. UTV

He reads but doesn't post. I can tell that he's delighted with this thread.

I have to add my voice to this thread, John's articles not only describe in detail historic events that many of us weren't aware of, they're wonderfully written. If the articles were compiled and published in a book, I'd probably zip through it in an afternoon. I take my hat off to you, Mr. Russell.
