As Mike Phelan was being interviewed after the match, I took a proper look at the hoarding behind his head and was astounded.
I think we all know that the BBC’s policy on advertising has slipped a little in the past few years, but just how blatant is it on MoTD.
I looked closely at the screen (pic as you can see on the left) and realised there were none other than 7 different brands/companies being plugged. And that’s not forgetting the BBC Sport logo.
OK, so football is a different animal anyway because of the hoardings on the side of the pitch and on-shirt sponsorship, but the post-match interview is completely separate from that part of the game, isn’t it?
I get annoyed with the constant plugging of their own programmes in between other shows, but this is a step too far, surely.
