For the week ending October 27, here are the ten most visited soccer websites in the UK:
1 Liverpool Football Club, www.liverpoolfc.tv, 5.16% market share
2 Manchester United, www.manutd.com, 4.10%
3 TEAMtalk Football, www.teamtalk.com, 3.67%
4 Arsenal.com, www.arsenal.com, 2.65%
5 Premier League, www.premierleague.com, 2.24%

9 Full Time, full-time.thefa.com, 1.65%
10 Football365.com, www.football365.com, 1.18%
There are some interesting observations from this chart:
- Despite Man United and Arsenal having two of the best websites in the UK, Liverpool’s inferior website is in first place. After all, the chart is based on traffic, not aesthetics.
- The FootyMad message boards are more popular in terms of traffic than clubs such as Leeds and Spurs.
- Where’s Chelsea’s website in this list? Of all of the clubs in “The Big Four,” Chelsea is not even in the top 10.
