ManUtdTalk was nominated for the Best Club Fansite award. We asked them to talk about the awards, how 2010 had turned out for ManUtdTalk, future plans and of course, who they would vote for in the awards. Here’s the interview:
1) You’ve been nominated for Best Club Fansite, chosen by both fans and industry experts, how does it feel?
It feels great and an honour, especially when we are one of the only two United websites being shortlisted, we have worked really hard on the site the last few years so this is a great boost for us all.
2) What kind of year has 2010 been for ManUtdTalk?
2010 has been a good year for us, activity , content and website awareness has increased, long may it continue.
3) What do you think has been the key factor in your success?
We have a great team of die hard fans who work on the site, it becomes a passion which I think reflects in the content and feel of our community, we have sensible and moderate staff, active participation and interactions with members by staff, and a smaller but closer community of regular members.
4) If you were casting a vote for your any of your fellow nominees, who would it be?
I would have to say The Republik Of Mancunia.
5) What’s next for ManUtdTalk?
ManUtdtalk is an on-going development, I’m never satisfied and am always looking to improve the experience for members as well as develop new features.
I can’t say too much but we have some exciting things going on behind the scenes which we hope to roll out in time for the 2011/2012 season, watch this space as they say.
6) Have you seen the Castrol Football Rankings? What do you think about them, and who do you think is the best footballer in the world at the moment?
Easy to use, insightful and probably most accurate by the methodology described. Best player at the moment has to be Messi for me.
You can vote for ManUtdTalk in the following category:
