'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Congratulations Vital Football !

It is not everyday that you get associated with something that receives public recognition for being a success, but if you are a casual reader, passive member, active contributor, moderator or administrator for any of the Vital Football sites now is the time to feel proud.

The Daily Telegraph has just published an article naming the 25 best football websites and Vital Football is ranked seventh overall and as high as third in the 'communities' section.

This is a major achievement for all connected with Vital Football especially considering the thousands of football websites available on the internet and the rankings of some of the more 'professional` organisations on the list, and more to the point, some of those that did not even make the final cut of twenty-five!

A link to the Telegraph article is below, but before you read it, give yourselves a huge pat on the back for being part of a nationally recognised success story… and whatever you do, do not stop getting involved with your thoughts and comments about our national game. That is what makes Vital Football what it is.

It doesn't matter if you support Pompey or Arsenal, Spurs or Man City, Rotherham or Sheffield Wednesday or whoever - If you follow football there is always something of interest on Vital Football

'For the fans by the fans'. Never was a strap-line so accurately put !

Well done everybody … especially our very own Rug and all the other guys behind the scenes that have made Vital Football what it is today.

I'm personally chuffed to bits with this news.. It took me a long time to decide on an an e-home that I could write for and contribute to and this news just backs up the point that I made the right decision. The Telegraph comment about us not being linked to a major organisation makes it all the more sweeter... We have all seen what can (unfortunately) happen to those sites virtually overnight... Long live Vital Football.. and all those involved in our own little corner 'Vital Pompey' can claim a drink off me if in the Milton Arms before (and probably) after the Everton game on Saturday

as i have posted elsewhere on VP, if you get annoyed with this site try visiting some of the other Pompey sites ; DONT PANIC MR RUG they'll be back. Try the online one managed by the self appointed chairman of all pompey fans where they get talked at via ridiculous inaccurate editorials which conveniently ignore facts, the same self appointed chairman wouldn't challenge the club and deffinetly not Storrie on anything substantive - ever. And to top it off you get no right of reply. You are allowed to worship him though. You could try the news, where the contributors seem to be at permamanet "literary" war with each other and the editor. So when you get aannoyed by a posting, like this one, go try these sites and we'll look forward to seeing you back on VP tomorrow - where your opinion counts..

Well done chaps. Having contributed my nonsense for the last 2+ years, if not as much lately, this is a wonderful fans platform.
