The deadline for voting in the sixth-annual World Soccer Talk Awards is tomorrow, and time is running out to vote for the best of the 2013/14 Premier League season featuring the best-of-the-best soccer podcasts, blogs, footballers, websites, forums and more.
So far, many of the categories have been extremely competitive. And there’s still time to make a difference in the final numbers by casting your vote.
In the Best Premier League Forum category, last year‘s second place forum The Oatcake is being left in the dust this year by Everton’s Grand Old Team. Everton are ahead of Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and other club forums thus far.
Last year, the Caught Offside blog won the Best Blog, but so far this year they’ve slipped to seventh place while Dirty Tackle is in the lead.
Meanwhile in the Club Podcast category, last year’s winner Followtonians are currently in fourth place while fellow Merseysiders The Anfield Wrap are leading the pack.
These are just a few of the categories where you can make a difference.
Voting closes on Sunday, May 25 at 11:59pm ET.
Be sure to vote in all of the following categories:
