Proof That Match of The Day Favours Boring Arsenal And Hates Exciting Aston Villa

MATCH of the Day is most football fans’ first chance to see what their team got up earlier in the day. The BBC’s flagship football programmes starts late on a Saturday Night. And most often than not it starts with Arsenal:

 

 

Most popular clubs on Match of the Day (Aug 2013-)

And it finishes with Aston Villa.

 

 

 

Least popular clubs on Match of the Day (Aug 2013-)

Is this fair?

 

 

Total goals scored: first match & last match (Aug 2013-)

MoTD just starts with the bigger teams playing well (Arsenal enjoyed most days as League leaders last season), who often score more goals against the less big teams.

Or are Villa just worth waiting up for, keepign fans glues to the show’s end? Get boring Arsenal out the way first…
