Best Premier League Blogs, Websites and Books Named in EPL Awards

We eat, live and breathe online coverage of the Premier League throughout the season, so it’s no surprise that the 2011 EPL Awards for the best blogs, online newspapers, tweeters and online games were some of the most competitive categories in the award competition.

Congratulations to Dirty Tackle, the irreverent blog for winning both the Best EPL Blogger Reader’s Choice award as well as Funniest Football Site category (Reader’s Choice). Also hats off need to go to ArseBlog for winning the Best EPL Twitterer Reader’s Choice Award by just one vote after defeating Rio Ferdinand. On top of that, ArseBlog won awards for Best EPL Club Blog (Reader’s Choice and Editor’s Choice).
