We came, we saw, we drank too much, probably. Wednesday night saw the inaugural Not One Hundred Percent Awards for football bloggers at Hoxton Hall in London, and Twohundredpercent was, as you might expect, represented. In between canapés, more free booze than could possibly helpful and persuading Clive Tyldesley to sign an original Dotmund piece of artwork (long story), there was the serious business of prizes to hand out. We were already aware that we had been given the Socrates award for “an independent blogger or podcaster for an outstanding contribution to their chosen medium”, but this didn’t mean that my acceptance speech didn’t amount to more than a few mumbled words.
So, I’ll take the opportunity to say thanks here to the guys from Socrates for thinking of us, and also to congratulate the other winners on their well-deserved awards. It is a reflection of the quality of football writing in this country that there were unfortunately not enough awards for all of the sites that were represented. Should you wish to see a (slightly out of focus) picture of our award itself, you can do that by clicking here. More details on Socrates, in the meantime, are available here, more about NOPA is available here, and a full list of the winners is as follows:
