Am I the only person who is getting a bit sick of the Champions League press coverage? The match hasn’t even begun yet, but the newspapers continue writing article after article leading up to Wednesday’s match between Manchester United and Chelsea. Sure, I’m looking forward to the match just as much as anyone, but I don’t want it crammed down my throat.
On Saturday and Sunday this weekend, I counted 62 articles being published online on the topic of the Champions League from the following online sites: The Telegraph, The Daily Mail, The Guardian, The Sun, The Independent, The Daily Star, The Times, The Offside, Reuters, Manchester Evening News, The Daily Mirror, The Daily Express and BBC Sport.
Let’s do the talking after the match has ended. Sure, if there’s important news to share prior to the final, do it. But most of the articles I’ve read are retreads of the other ones.
