As it can sometimes be such a pain trying to find out up-to-date information, especially in English, about all the football going on around South America, I figured I would draw up a list of the best blogs, or at least the ones where I find all the information I need.
- Brazilian Football – a good overview of Brazilian football and the national team, with lots of news
- Pitaco do Gringo’s Brazilian football site – best site for Brazilian transfer gossip
- Football at the Maracana – the holy bible if you are visiting Rio, listing every game that will be played at Maracana stadium
- Globo Esporte – this isn’t really a blog and it is in Portuguese but once you learn that Classificacao is the league table and jogos are fixtures it’s the best place to get juiced up on Brazilian football stats
- Argentine Soccer – again not strictly a blog but the best place to quickly get Argentine results, fixtures and tables
- Tim Vickery Column – Tim Vickery’s masterful blog on South American football
- South America page on Goal – Goal have some good news on South American football though it is heavily focused on South American players playing in Europe
