Thanks to Google Analytics, I was able to take a look back at 2009 and see what stories were the most read this past year at Inside Minnesota Soccer. I emphasize that these were the most read which one could argue meant they were the most popular. I would argue instead they may have been the most newsworthy but not necessarily your favorite stories. I’m going to try to dig up the most interesting stories from 2009 and let you vote on those. However, for now, here are those top 10 stories. Gee, do you think the USL v NASL/TOA story dominated IMS coverage this year?
Anyway, its been a privilege to bring you all these stories and more this very first calendar year of Inside Minnesota Soccer’s existence, bringing you soccer news from Minnesota and beyond. It has been a ride this year, hasn’t it?
