BBC Disrespect Newcastle United – Again!

10 years ago

Have a glance at the BBC Sport website, or rather don’t!

I wouldn’t want you to give them extra clicks, just take my word.

As we speak they have a small section showing the Premier League ‘Top Scorers’ which is reproduced below.

Top Scorers

1.  26 R.Van Persie (Arsenal)

2. 20 W.Rooney (Man Utd.)

3. 16 S.Aguero (Man City)

It left me scratching my head and I had to go and double check this season’s stats and sure enough Demba Ba has scored 16 goals, all in the Premier League.

Obviously they will be just itching to drop us from any snapshot of the league table if we drop below their beloved Liverpool but how does it work when the public broadcaster can distort what they put up on a website which basically you and me have helped pay for?

Surely if anything it should be Demba Ba up there alone in third if they were only going to pick one, he has one of the very best goals to chances ratio in the Premier League while Aguero plays for a mercenary team that for most of the season have created chances for fun.
