The Terrible Journalism & Tom English Thread


Recommended Posts

BBC have a section on their website just now with a few Memorable Games Between English and Scottish Clubs and have included a few ties where the Scottish club has lost. But no mention of unfancied Aberdeen turfing the UEFA Cup holders, Ipswich, out of the UEFA Cup.

Nothing about the Pars beating West Brom and Everton either.

The person who wrote the article clearly has very limited knowledge of any such ties not involving Celtic and the old, dead Rangers.

I think its possible to make the reference without stumbling excruciatingly over it for 4 paragraphs, throwing in another metaphor half way through just to make it even more disjointed.

You're right though, I dont think it's clever it think it's a well worn cliche played out a million times a day in meme form and on social media.

it's akin to a football crowd's idea of originality - in keeping with Monty Python, like singing "always look on the bright side of life" - to which a commentator invariably remarks on their fantastic humour.

Apparently you can retain "unbeaten" status in the Scottish Premiership even if you get horsed 4-0 by Celtic.

The papers toe the party line when you consider all the other shite they try and brainwash us into believing has been posthumously 'retained' since 2012. I doubt even any of us doddery auld cnuts on here could be taken in by this one.

Is Airdrie beating Man City, Huddersfield and Forest in it?

I dont understand how you get this wrong. Undefeated isnt just something a normal person assumes.

Surely the person writting the headline/article would just look at the table with that one big fat L on it?

Could you narrow it down a bit - would that have been Airdrieonians, Airdrie United, Airdrie FC.....?

Sorry, just been in the Tinpot thread and my brains a bit fried.

@Sergeant Wilson Did Airdrie lose a lot of fans when they 1/ moved from Broomfield (I thought it a lovely ground) and 2/ went bust and then the shenanigins with buying Clydebank?

Yes, bar for the odd wee spike, it's on a downward trend since to mid 90s.

Willing to forgive this as a "but of fun". It's when the BBC (England) Sports page does a full day's (non match-day) live blog based on something like "vote for your favourite goal of the weekend" or "who was the best English right back of 1983", that's what does my nut in....
