Thanks For Supporting EPL Talk

epl-talk-medium-logoIt’s been a good week for EPL Talk. In the past few days, we’ve been mentioned in USA Today, Yahoo Sports, Sports Illustrated, NBC Sports and print newspapers across the United States after we broke the story regarding Fox Soccer Channel in talks to acquire Setanta Sports US.

For us at EPL Talk, it’s another example of what we’ve been doing since 2005 which is covering the experience of watching the Premier League – whether it’s on television, Internet, on mobile devices or, for you lucky b**tards, seeing the matches in person.

  3. Cheers Gaffer, this is definitely one of my must use sites as who else accurately provides me with media information concerning football in the US. You provide a great service.

  4. You broke a story that was being discussed at the forums before you ever posted anything, so don’t pay yourself too hard on the back.
