TEAMtalk has scoured the net to put together a list of independent football blogs and websites we recommend you add to your bookmarks.

Here on TEAMtalk you can find all the latest news, regular blogs, popular Your Say boards, quizzes, polls, Podcasts and plenty more.

You may also be a fan of our sister sites Sky Sports, Football365 and Sporting Life, but sometimes you might want to read more partisan views about your club or visit a specific tactics or finances site, for example.

With that in mind, here is a list of websites we reckon you should check out.
