3. Daily Cannon
Moving up the table to number three is Daily Cannon, a football blog sharing everything Arsenal, from team changes to match reports. Created in 2008 by Lee Hurley (originally under the name LadyArse), he’s now joined by a team of writers, and most importantly Arsenal fans, sharing their thoughts on the players, managers and team gossip. Daily Cannon has also launched its own podcast where Gooners can find out everything that’s going on in the world of Arsenal.
Whether you’re looking for the latest transfer rumours and news or you’re after a bit of debate and banter, head to the Transfer Tavern for all your football conversation needs. With the aim of making the reader feel like they’re chatting about the beautiful game down their local, Transfer Tavern blogs about everything football around the world, from the Premier League to global transfers.
Created by LBC host, former Biteback Publishing Managing Director and passionate West Ham fan, Iain Dale, West Ham Till I Die started back in 2006. Posting a variety of in-depth articles about changes in management, team and the game itself, West Ham Till I Die is supported by a large community of authors and an even bigger network of members. With well-thought out posts about the game and the club, West Ham Till I Die is less like going out for a pint (or two) and more like an oasis of calm in the landscape of football blogs.
A new entry into our rankings is The Republik of Mancunia, created back in 2006 by Scott, the optimistic United fan. Scott started off sharing a few posts about his beloved team before it grew into the popular blog it is today. While Scott aims to rely on statistical evidence for his posts, he openly admits he often writes wearing his red-tinted spectacles! With an active community behind it, The Republik of Mancunia is the best place to go for the latest United news, transfers and match reviews.
Focusing on the top of the table, Football Talk was created to share the latest news on the teams at the top of the Premier League, with everything from transfer rumours to injury updates. With a team of writers covering the ‘Big Four’ – Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool (plus Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City), this isn’t a blog for fans of the lower leagues!
Another new entry into our rankings, JustArsenal.com was started by longstanding Arsenal fan, Pat McLaughlin, sharing news and opinion about Arsenal FC from player updates and transfers to changes in management. Encouraging readers to have ‘polite debate’ about their team, JustArsenal.com is an open forum for all types of Arsenal fan. With a wide range of regular contributors, Pat has opened JustArsenal.com up to its readers, welcoming contributions from the whole community.
9. Off The Post
Launched back in September 2008, Off The Post has grown into one of the most popular non-partisan football blogs that shares the latest news, rumours and humour from the world of football. Off The Post mainly posts about the top teams in the Premier League, covering transfer rumours and match reports, all with a healthy dose of humour along the way.
10. My Old Man Said
Founded by David Michael, My Old Man Said is a blog for Aston Villa supporters, providing the latest news from the team and how the club is run.

The fundamentals of working with bloggers are the same as with traditional journalists at traditional media outlets: respect their schedules; take time to read their material to learn their interests; and only contact them if/when they want to be contacted.
Vuelio’s blog ranking methodology takes into consideration social sharing, topic-related content and post frequency. Profiles of these Football blogs and their authors can be found in the Vuelio Media Database.
