Once again the English fans aren't considered

Post  Lever Malone on 2017-08-23, 10:16 am

This is a report in the Daily Star.


Carabao Cup third round draw: When is it?

The Premier League big boys enter and will be looking forward to finding out their opponents.
The draw takes place in Beijing, China on Thursday, August 24.
But it won't be fun for those in the UK as it all gets underway at 4.15am BST.
So you'll have to set a painfully early alarm if you want to find out who your side has drawn.

Carabao Cup third round draw: How can I watch?

Why would you want to get up that early and see the debacle that has been the draw of the previous two rounds?
And this time there won't be any issues that we hear of because it is NOT being televised.
The draw taking place is all part of trying to expand the competition in the Far East.
An EFL Cup spokesman explained: "We understand that not everyone will agree on the timing of this week’s round-three draw, but in staging in this way, it will give the competition both the maximum exposure in the UK, Chinese and Southeast Asian markets.
"This is not only an important factor for the EFL but also our new sponsors Carabao, who, like ourselves, plan to use the growing global appeal of the competition to reach new audiences."

Not even good grammar given they say 'both' then list three markets they are aiming for: "the UK, Chinese and Southeast Asian markets"

Or maybe they did mean 'both' as if they had said they wanted "maximum exposure in all three" of these markets it would have been untrue, given they way they have done it gives LEAST exposure in UK!

Plus I cannot see much of that 'maximum exposure' materialsing in China and Southeast Asia if no one is televising it. Although I assume the Far East companies are, just not UK based media.

Anyway, now we know (if we did not before, and I am sure many of us did) that the game of football, or at least the authorities that run it, are merely craven servants of their sponsors. It is no longer the 'beautiful game' we all love but a commercial racket, that has finally descended into farce Mad

A bit early in the day for a rant but that made me feel better anyway Laughing

A good friend of mine who writes in the Metro (free paper, NOT the shopping centre) wonders who Salako will draw for Norwich in the next round and goes on to speculate "Vitesse Arnhem away maybe!"   Laughing

Being held at a ridiculous time of the morning and not having it televised takes some of the fun out of the draw. When the home team is being drawn we are all thinking 'Us, us' but if it is for the away team we all think 'Not us, not us'.

Mind you after the farce of the 2nd round draw maybe EFL has decided to hold the draw in the Far East so they won't be embarrassed again.
