Simon MartinSenior Writer INovember 4, 2016

So over the last few months I've been writing some pretty serious, mildly controversial articles (ahem).

Therefore, I think it's high time that I wrote about something of more interest. For you statisticians out there, I've picked out a few of my favorite English Football records.
