TTU Awards 2009/2010: Best website
As newcomers to the blogging game, the excellent range of online materials pertaining to football has been amazingly useful in helping us learn more and to take our first fledgling footsteps. We shall be conducting a more detailed review of the offerings out there in the coming weeks but as far as these awards are concerned, our contributors have identified two sites that are of a particularly impressive nature.
Matt Rowson’s BHaPPY is as exemplary a club blog as you will find and we return again and again to his Watford match summaries as well as his End of Term Report, an analysis in stages of the Hornets’ players’ campaigns. I’m also already relishing the prospect of the site’s pre-season look ahead; last summer’s run through was terrific.
Equally as corking is a site where the sheer amount of hard graft put in is evident. Two Hundred Percent provides superb coverage of the game at all levels and is a natural port of call for any analysis of football finances, errant chairmen and the evil of Richard Scudamore.
Honourable mentions to a host of sites including Black & White & Read All Over (disqualified from serious consideration for this award due to insider interest), the mammoth but virally inflicted SmogBlog (where are you now?), Donny portal Viva Rovers and a trio of awe-inducing American offerings: the geopolitically savvy Pitch Invasion, sumptuously designed Run of Play and statto’s heaven Zonal Marking. And then of course, there’s WSC– provider of the continued gold standard.
