You might have missed it, but the rags have been thrashed 1:4 by Dortmund. The biased BBC? not a word about it and yet they had our 1:0 loss to BM headlined for days.
In fairness, Sky have reported fully on it.

Oooo. Now the BBC have a small section entitled Mourinho not worried by Dortmund defeat.
And that's it.

What a surprise.

Well below "the fold" as they used to say in the newspaper business. Well and truly buried and, as you say, couched in terms of Maureen setting the agenda rather than highlighting the scale of the defeat. City's loss was one of the three secondary stories immediately under the headline article......

In typical fashion he got his excuses in early and well before kick off.....

"They are a team that has played five matches and a team that has five matches in their legs," he added. "They started training a couple of weeks before us and they didn’t have so many players like we did in the Copa America and the Euros.

“So basically they only have two or three players out, they have the whole team working together for about a month and I repeat they have played five matches."

Nothing changes.
