Quirky Website that has lost a bit of sparkle

Advantages: Some great stories, some very funny writers
Disadvantages: It used to be better
Football365 is a popular football based website mixing up a good deal of news and chat, it is irreverent and at times utterly entertaining.
How does it look:
Its a decent looking website with photos lots of columns and enough space for advertising to please the accounts people. It looks good with the Green 365 moniker at the top of the screen, sections for gossip, news and then the mailbag which for me is the best and worst part of the site.
Whats on it:
There are regular columns by their journalists on issues of the day, unfortunately as with a lot of other things on the site these are mainly aimed at the big 4 football teams and anyone below that or abroad has to make do with the occasional funny or cutting comment.
There are sections for reviews of the news and for all of the football headlines of the day, although unlike Goal.com these are almost always aimed at UK based teams. Also unlike Teamtalk the stories are short and mainly cover Premier League.
There is also a twice daily mailbag where people write in to talk about issues in football, this can be interesting and hilarious and can have some really interesting debates, however what I hate about it is that the same old writers constantly get printed to bicker over trivial issues, and most of the posts are trash about Man United, Chelsea, Arsenal or Liverpool. It is frustrating for fans of smaller clubs or even fairly large clubs who are doing well. You could find your club had a great weekend but the mailbag is caught up with Liverpool and Man United fans arguing over whether Gary Nevilles goatie beard is the worst ever.
It means that for serious footy news I go to Goal.com or Teamtalk and if I want serious articles i'll read the Guardian or FourFourTwo online which are much more thorough.
The website is irreverent and worth a look but I do look at it much less than I used to and I find more often than not that the mailbox and the coverage of football is a bit too slanted to be a daily read.
