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.
