The three of us here at AtléticoFans would just like to wish everyone around the world Merry Christmas, or Happy Holidays if you’re not celebrating today! While we’re at it, why don’t we go ahead and wish you a Happy New Year as well!
2010 was a great year for Atlético Madrid, and will go down as one of the most successful in club history. We added two European titles to the trophy cabinet, and some of our star players showed the world they could do it on the big stage in South Africa’s World Cup.
It’s also been a huge year for us here at AtleticoFans.com. As the calendar switches to the 1st January 2011, we will have been running for five months exactly! In that time, we’ve had almost 80,000 page views, with just under 10,000 different people visiting the site, from 129 different countries! We’ve just passed 250 articles, and there are more than 1,000 user comments scattered across the site.
We’ve developed into the most popular independent Atlético Madrid website in the English-speaking world!
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your opinions, comments and banter that you’ve given over the past few months, and are looking forward to more of the same in 2011!
Martin, Derek and Nick
