This web site is created and maintained by Mike Landers. All brickbats and bouquets should be aimed in his direction.

The layout, design and graphics were created by Caroline Hodson, and her advice and ideas make Fire on Ice appear far better than this incompetent could.

Technical support, advice, constructive criticism and (occasionally unwarranted) abuse was provided by Alan Coo.

Most of the statistical information was provided by Andy Costigan. The rest from The Internet Hockey Database,, Graham Wilkinson, Damian Webber and Grant Charman - if in doubt, I've used the official stats provided in various programmes and yearbooks and these are collated by the Storm's official statistician, Jim Sanderson.

The rest of the statistical information has been provided by reports on the UKH mailing list from Buzz Bee, Neil Hughes, Ros Coldrey-Mobbs, Pete Walch and Huw Button. I am also very grateful to Mark Jones, Brian Storey and Paolo Ianieri for providing additional information.

Photographs are mainly scanned in from yearbooks and programmes, and were taken by Andy Yates of the Manchester Evening News.

The world is not Disneyland. I don't see why my opinions should be dumbed down into a homogenous, anger-free zone just because some kid can work the computer better than his parents. Therefore, on this site there is language not suitable for minors.

If anyone feels offended or that their kids should not be reading some of the articles on this site, then don't read it. Not my problem. They shouldn't be reading it and this disclaimer is fair warning. You know where the off button is.

Where I have used images that I have not created, then I have provided a link and the images remain the copyright of their respective creators.

The articles and reports are written for the enjoyment and amusement of ice hockey fans, specifically those of the Manchester Storm. Therefore, some fans of other teams may feel slighted or offended by some of the opinions expressed. If you have cause to feel this way then click here to email me. Don't bother raising the issue on an email list or in a newsgroup, as I will simply not rise to it and respond to any complaints privately.
