Telegraph: Vital Football Ranked Seventh

Telegraph: Vital Football Ranked Seventh

UK broadsheet, the Daily Telegraph has studied all of the football internet websites out there in cyberspace and ranked the Vital Network seventh out of 25.


They took into account videos, pictures, news, blogs and gossip and came up with rankings, 1-25.

Far from me to blow the bosses trumpet but Jonathan Fear and Andy C (don't know his surname and feel embarrassed for not knowing) have worked miracles to bring football fans a truly unique experience in football internet sites. Starting from scratch they have built a network many in the sport of football envy and admire.

Little Known Fact

Even Mr Fear has a cross to bear in that his supports Aston Villa while Andy is a staunch Stockport County fan - gawd bless 'em.

The network launched in 2006 and since then Vital has seen off many challenges. It has developed and grown into what you see today, but not without stiff competition. We have seen off the Rivals Network, bought out by SKY a couple of years ago and look what happened. Yup, Rivals is now defunct.

I hope I can say on behalf of JF and AC that Vital will remain independent, a site, for the fans; by the fans.

I feel sort of warm inside. Mind you I would have preferred to be number one but in time, we will.

Just like City 'T' the number 1 slot will come in time.

I am sure that we are on the up as we get more posters and the debates are good, with everyone throwing in their bits.No 1 is something to aim at.

Congrats to the founders for keeping the site growing. Condolences to City for a tough loss on Sunday. You'll bounce back, even without your Togolese Typhoon.

Excellent result folks. Hats off to Vital City, Lincoln, Villa, Spurs and all of the other sites that are there or there about at the top end of the league every month, let's hope some of the "slower" sites like vital manure can pull their fingers out and help Vital climb to number 1

I thought it would be higher.. Oh well, it will be higher if they do another ranking :D

Excellent progress.

great accolade, vital is going from strength to strength

These actually aren't ranked from 1 - 25, they are just the list of the top 25 websites and if you look carefully you see that there are headings which indicate each different type of fotball website. After all how would The Spoiler really reach number 4?
