– A superbly in-depth tactical analysis site focusing on Arsenal.
– Another Arsenal tactical blog, which is wonderfully presented and has an excellent crop of writers.
– A Villa blog chock full of content. Particularly good at news, and for keeping up to date with Villa players domestically and internationally.

– Written by a (disgustingly young) Gooner, CoA has a whole range of Arsenal-related stuff.
– A regularly-updated site with consistently good content and long, absorbing articles.
– Detailed and wonderfully diverse, the Equaliser covers football from all continents and tries to look at how football affects the culture it is in.
– A well-written blog that covers football in all kinds of forms, both on the pitch and off it.
– Vast amount of content from all over the world, written by an array of good writers.
– Putting aside their rather unhealthy obsession with left-footed things, LLF is a wonderful site with some high-quality articles. Check out their series on Lovely Left Footers, too.

– A specialist site for Sunderland fans. I recommend the Roker Rhymes section. And yes, it’s poetry about Sunderland.
– A Brazilian football blog well known for its detail and depth.

– News, opinions and discussion on Aston Villa.
– An amusing and occasionally surreal take on football across Europe.
– A well laid-out blog covering Arsenal’s youth prospects and tracking them both domestically and internationally.
