ESPN Soccernet

The source of all my soccer knowledge, ESPN Soccernet has kept me up to date since I took an interest in the beautiful game. Breaking news, expert opinion and complete statistics from every facet of the sport is on the menu at this soccer portal.

Perhaps the most familiar of sites on the list, Sky Sports is the place to be if you want to catch a big breaking story or a Joey Barton outburst. Transfer Window Watch is just one of the many exclusive round-the-clock pages that run on Sky Sports, making it one of the most popular drop-ins for soccer fans across the United Kingdom and beyond.

For those who prefer a lighter dwelling, Goal.com may be your tonic. Not always the most reliable of news sources, but still providing the necessary gossip and opinion from the continent to keep you quenched.

Well known for its Gossip Column, BBC Sport is a favorite of many, for the expert insights, up-to-date reports, and interactivity. Despite stiff competition from the more corporate fellows at Sky Sports, BBC Sport represents the high street of sports news; easily accessible and wholly reliable.

The Guardian

Perhaps not a first port of call for many, but The Guardian’s validity as a credible source of news should not be underestimated. Excellent writers, trustworthy sources and never ones to publish without verification of what they’re writing.

Whilst other sites are more UK specific, Eurosport, as the name suggests, gives a more continental flavor to its work. Covering soccer from Russia to Romania and Latvia to Liechtenstein, Eurosport is the place to be for all your Euro gossip.

NewsNow is the headquarters for all news, sport and otherwise. With links to stories from all sorts of publications, look no further than NewsNow if you’re searching for a specific angle.

The Independent

Like the Guardian, the Independent offers a range of intelligent, credible writers, top rate stories and interviews and a variety of blogs. If you’re looking for something a little more up-market than your standard gossip columns, look no further than the Indy.

Sports Illustrated

Boasting a collection of the top writers in the game, Sports Illustrated is a reference point for many US fans. The highly respected Grant Wahl is their man on ​the ground, while the likes of Sid Lowe, Rafael Honigstein, and Tim Vickery provide top quality analysis of the world game.

The Mirror

Another whose focus lies with transfer gossip, the Mirror will keep you informed of who your club is chasing, wanting to dispose of or already signed. Don’t expect too much in the way of top drawer writing but that’s not to say you’ll be wasting your time on this soccer hub.
