There’s a saying in journalism that helps students understand what is newsworthy and what is not.
If a dog bites a man, it is not newsworthy, because it happens all the time.
However, if a man bites a dog, that is certainly newsworthy.
For Manchester City, it used to be a “man bites dog” story if it would beat Manchester United. As proved by its run of dominance, including yesterday’s 3-0 win at Old Trafford, the story is now a dog bites man.
The domination and tenacity that City shows in these games is incredible. The first goal was scored within 42 seconds yesterday. The Blues owned every phase of the game and made United look like a junior league side.
I wrote about the game as the first post on my new WordPress blog, which is called “Beyond the Scoreline.” This blog focuses on the stats I want to talk about from games I have watched. These are the stats that don’t get the most mentions during a broadcast. I love this blog and will keep posting on here, but I want Beyond the Scoreline to go hand in hand with this one.
I would be honored if you would check out the post. Here is the link www.beyondthescoreline.wordpress.com
