Salut! Sunderland has been nominated in the “Best EPL Club Blog” section of EPL Talk’s annual awards. If you think someone has a point, give a helping hand to our chances of winning by clicking ON THIS LINK …
There are sensitive folk out there in the football blogosphere. We need only mention another team to get an avalanche – ok, a trickle – of putdowns.
But it is all, or mostly, in good fun and the fact is that Salut! Sunderland‘s deliberate policy is to attract supporters of other clubs while remaining 100 per cent partisan. As a result, we receive massive input from people who do not follow Sunderland but have a point of view. And in reality, Gooners and Baggies have made some lively contributions to the issues discussed here,
So it is especially heartening to receive recognition from non-Sunderland sources. Look down the sidebars and you see that FHM lists us as a “website we quite like” and that When Saturday Comes gave us special mention in its virtual awards as a “balanced, articulate” site.
Now comes news from EPL Talk that we have been nominated as Best EPL Club Blog in its own annual awards.
This is what Christopher Harris, from EPL Talk, had to say:
I’m writing to congratulate you on being nominated for a 2010-11 EPL Award in the following category: Best EPL Club Blog.
The third annual EPL Awards recognises the best of the 2010-11 Premier League season. EPL Talk has taken a close look at the Premier League season and we’ve picked out the best footballers, managers, podcasts, blogs, radio shows, online games and more for readers to vote for.
Voting is open and closes on Sunday, May 22nd (the final day of the Premier League season). To help you get the word out to your community to vote for you, I’ve attached a banner ad that encourages people to vote. Feel free to point them to the complete list of all of the categories for the EPL Awards, including the one that you’re nominated in, at http://www.epltalk.com/2011-epl-awards
Salut! Sunderland realises it may well go no further, but it feels like recognition, an honour in itself, and we are immensely grateful to the supporters of those other clubs who come here in numbers, participate wittily or incisively in the debates we launch … and, of course, provide compelling answers in the “Who are You?” questionnaire that appears, more or less without fail, before every game.
Thanks for your support or interest. Vote for Salut! Sunderland if you think we’ve earned it.
