EPL Talk has been named the best website in the 2009 Soccerlens Awards picking up both the readers’ choice and editor’s choice awards in the Best Competition Site category. Plus EPL Talk came in third place in the Best Football Podcast of 2009 award beating World Football Daily.
“Over the years, EPL Talk has become a football blogging icon – coupled with the podcast, it’s quite possibly one of the best football blogs around,” said Ahmed Bilal, owner of Soccerlens and organizer of the 2009 Soccerlens Awards. “EPL Talk edges out mainstream media sites like the BBC and the Guardian by giving you proper football analysis and wide-lens coverage of the English Premier League.”
In the Best Competition Site category, which featured sites that focused on leagues and cup tournaments, EPL Talk won 65% of the votes.
As for the Best Football Podcast of 2009, The Football Ramble won the readers’ choice award followed by The Guardian’s Football Weekly and then the EPL Talk Podcast, which features daily interviews with some of the biggest names in football including David Conn, Jon Champion, Joe Royle, Jan Molby, Steve McManaman, Robbie Earle, Martin Tyler and many others.
On behalf of EPL Talk, I’d like to thank you — the soccer community — for making EPL Talk number one. And also thanks to the bloggers at EPL Talk who make the articles possible. And thanks to EPL Talk Podcast host Kartik Krishnaiyer for getting the bronze medal in a competitive category.
