As I said earlier today, only titles (and awards) count in football. You may disagree (especially if your team wears red, pretends to play in pretty triangles and don’t like to win if one of their painted nails gets chipped), but that is how the world works.
Which kind of puts us in a difficult spot – earlier this week Soccerlens was nominated for several awards, including best EPL Blog, best EPL Blogger (yours truly), best EPL Podcast, best EPL Podcast Pundit (Iain Spragg) and best EPL Podcast Presenter (Adrian Clarke).
