Case 30: This sentence sucks

10th August 2004

The Offence

In an article on the history of football's European Cup, the Guardian reports:

As early as 1945 Moscow Dynamo had drawn huge crowds on a tour of Britain and on a memorable December night at Molineux in 1954 Wolverhampton Wanderers, the League champions, beat Honved, on whom the Hungarian side that had beaten England 6-3 and 7-1 was based, 3-2 after going 2-0 down.

This sentence sucks.

The Verdict

This sentence sucks. Don't write sentences like it.

The Sentence

It sucks. Didn't we say?

Next case!
