FSF Awards 2014: Blogger of the Year

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

The Football Supporters’ Federation Awards in association with William Hill have been announced, have your say and vote here. Over the course of the next fortnight, we’ll be taking a look at each category individually. First up, it’s Blogger of the Year…

Voting is open now – to cast your votes, visit: www.fsf.org.uk/awards

Blogger of the Year

  • Arseblog (Andrew Mangan) – Arseblog has essentially become a by-word for quality, club-specific content. The daily columns are always well written and thought-provoking, and the podcast has proved so successful that it’s now twice-weekly. 
  • Beesotted (Various) – The site goes from strength to strength, and the breadth and depth of their coverage continues to impress. Their video blogs on matchdays in particular give a real insight into the thoughts of a dedicated fanbase, and what it means to follow their club.
  • Copa 90 – The success of their video blogs is plain for all the see, as they close in on 1 million YouTube subscribers. Covering derby days across Europe and documenting football in an intelligent way has earned them respect among their legions of fans. 
  • Premier League Owl (Seb Stafford-Bloor)  – Seb’s output is prolific, and doesn’t just cover team-selection, player performance and statistics, but also takes in commentary on wider issues in the game, beyond the 90 minutes on the pitch. There’s always something worth reading here. 
  • The Real FA Cup (Damon Threadgold/Simon Barnett) – On the other end of the scale from the Premier League, Damon and his team of bloggers cover the less salubrious but ever interesting world of the FA Cup qualifying rounds with aplomb, providing great insight into the games and characters further down the pyramid. 
  • Ian King (Two Hundred Percent) – A previous winner of the FSF’s Blogger of the Year award, his longevity is as impressive as his continued quality. Covering some of the game’s otherwise overlooked issues, Two Hundred Percent continues to be a regular on many fans’ browsers.

Voting is open now – to cast your votes, visit: www.fsf.org.uk/awards

Voting will close at midday on Monday 24th November, with the winners announced at our awards dinner on Monday 1st December at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London.
