The recent England test matches against Zimbabwe seem to have done
their bit to push cricket to the top of our sports websites table.
However, after CricInfo it is nearly all football. There are the
football-dominated general sports sites - Sportal.com and Sports.com -
followed by two of the larger straight football sites in PlanetFootball
and Teamtalk. Arsenal FC is the only Premier League website to make the
top ten while the PA and Trinity Mirror venture SportingLife is the only
representative from the world of traditional publishing.
