A More Splendid Life
A New Series for a New Year
I’ve written a lot on this blog about the woeful state of most newspaper soccer coverage, particularly in North America, but I’ve generally treated it as a fact of life like the rising of the sun and the running of the deer. This practice is, ironically, a glaring example of bad football journalism. Mea culpa. Thankfully it’s a new year, which is as good a time as any to test this widely-held assumption by critiquing the soccer coverage in Canadian and American newspapers, one-by-one.
