Soccerlens 2007 Awards – mCalcio Runner-Up in ‘Editor’s Choice’ category

Soccerlens 2007 Awards - Best Serie A BlogFor those of you who haven’t been following, this month saw the launch of the first official Soccerlens 2007 Awards, rewarding the best soccer blogs on the internet. For each category, the choice was narrowed down to 6 candidates, with being nominated for ‘Best Serie A Blog’.

After one week of voting, time for results. I can’t really say that we almost made it, because… well that would be untrue. The Readers’ Choice poll ended up ranking mCalcio in 4th position, shortly behind Italy Offside (which in my opinion deserved the win) and way behind vote winners Italian Soccer Serie A (authored by our friend Anna Italia).  I guess that’s what happens when you got a lot of friends voting for you… repeatedly :P but in any case, congratulations to Anna for all her hard work. Her enthusiasm certainly shows in each one of her posts, and that’s the main thing.

Soccerlens 2007 Awards - Best Serie A Blog Poll ResultsOn the upside, mCalcio did rank 2nd in the Editor’s Choice category (and no, before you ask, I did not have anything to do with the voting), right behind Italy Offside who got the recognition it deserved. The work of Martha this past year has been absolutely incredible, and it is with great sadness that I learned she would be quitting her blogging tasks this month, due to lack of time. The good news is that, for the moment, she is being replaced by Chris from the Roma Offside, which by the way won the award for ‘Best Blogger’. Those of you who have read Chris’s work before, you know you’re going to get entertainment. Yes he’s a Romanista and entirely biased towards the club of Trigoria but hey, nobody’s perfect…

Anyways, I’d like to thank all of you who voted for me, as well as all those who keep reading my footy ramblings day after day, week after week. You are keeping mCalcio alive! :)

So CHEERS for a great 2007, and here’s to an even better 2008!! :mrgreen: Drinks are on me, courtesy of Carlsberg. Salute!!

Cheers everyone!

      I resent that. If I’m perfect, that’s the only reason.

      Wait, that made no sense.

    2. That’s okay Chris, we love you anyway…

      Tough luck Marco! I voted for you, but I guess it wasn’t enough. :P

      I wonder how the first ranked site got so many votes though (38%???). Looking at it, it doesn’t seem all that, I would have expected Offside Italy to take the win hands down (with their large community and all).

      Next year maybe! :mrgreen:

      Congrats Marco, that’s still a pretty good result for a young blog like yours!! Keep up the awesome work! :cool:

      Shame Marco. Congrats for the nomination though, and the runner-up position!!

      Bravo pour la nomination! Keep up the good work, Forza Juve! ;)
