A long time ago, the venerable football magazine “When Saturday Comes” used to keep a directory of fanzines tucked away at the back of its pages every month. It fell from view at some point in the early 1990s, and has been sorely missed. It is with this in mind that we have decided to launch “The Great Twohundredpercent Directory Project”. It’s simple, really. The plan is, with your help, collate together links to as many of the best independent club blogs and sites out there in one place.
There’s no catch. We’re not looking for money, and we’re not even bothered whether you return the link. This is about collecting together a definitive, one-stop shop for independent fan sites so that you know where to go to find about any club, not matter how big or small. If you have one that you’d like us to add, leave it in the comments box or email it to us and we’ll stick it up. The only rules are as follows:
1. We’re not going to link to official club sites. That would kind of defeat the object of the exercise, wouldn’t it?
2. We’re not going to link to any sites that feature racist, sexist or homophobic language. If you indulge in that sort of thing, that’s your right. Don’t expect this site to support you, though. All sites will be reviewed prior to being linked.
3. We will only link to forums and sites that don’t require registration to view them. Again, it’s your right to make them registration only (and, in all honesty, we understand the reasons why forum adminstrators may choose to do this), but this is about accessibility. If your site has a forum which requires registration built into it, that’s fine. We will add it.
We will also be adding sites that we find ourselves, but the best way to find out which are the best independent sites is to ask you guys, so that is what we’re doing. With a bit of luck, we’ll be able to create something which benefits all football supporters.
