Another week, another Thursday – which means it’s time to sharpen your pencils, warm-up your keyboards or whatever rituals you perform before start composing a blog article. Last week’s topic was about the contribution of the new teams to the season gone and again we’re going to take a look back at 2010. The question today:

In the final “Thursday Thoughts” of the off-season, some fool posed the question:
“Which blog article or articles have you written that you were most pleased with writing and why?”
