World Soccer Talk Celebrates 8 Years Of Soccer Coverage

happy birthday World Soccer Talk Celebrates 8 Years Of Soccer Coverage

This month, World Soccer Talk marks 8 years of continuous soccer coverage. We launched World Soccer Talk (then known as EPL Talk) in November, 2005. So much has changed since then in the world of soccer, including the popularity of the sport in the country where we live — the United States of America.

In the past 8 years, we’ve published:

• 18,621 posts

And here’s to many more!

We’re looking forward to what the rest of 2013 has in store for us, as well as 2014, which will be the third World Cup we’ll be covering. We’re hoping to have one of our team members on the ground in Brazil bringing you reports of what the experience is like.

Plus we have plenty of other exciting news and developments to share soon particularly around the World Cup. Watch for more details coming soon!

Thank you for your support and loyalty during these 8 years!

    One of the best all round football sites on the web. I’ve watched a few other web sites go backwards over the last 12 months but WST seems to be getting better each season with its football coverage. It’s now my first choice for general football information over the likes of ESPN.

    Christopher Harris, one thing is missing from this website is “recap” just for top four teams, this web will be even better with recap.

    Peter Quinn, is doing some good articles, just if he decide to write recap.

    Happy birthday WORLDSOCCERTALK.
