ITV.com IA: Man City filed under Man Utd (and anything under Johnstones Paint Trophy)

March 26, 2009 4 Comments

<Update>ITVfootball's Twitter account (good one to follow: @itvfootball) messaged me to reveal that "The stories are from a feed which are clearly dropping in the wrong place. It's an issue we're working on to fix".</update>

I'm not sure who does the information architecture at ITV.com.

Man City filed under Man U

itv-com-logoBut I am sure that this story (among others): 'Man City handed Hamburg Test' should not have this URL:

http://www.itv.com/Sport/Football/News/UEFACup/Generalnews/ManchesterUnited1ZenitStPetersburg2/Man-City-handed-Hamburg-test-505002467.html

as it means ITV has filed Man City stories in a folder called 'Manchester United 1 Zenit StPetersburg 2'.

And World Cup filed under Johnstones Paint Trophy (northern semi)

And this story (among others): 'Joint 2018 World Cup bid a risk' should not have this URL:

http://www.itv.com/Sport/Football/News/Generalnews/ManualStories/JohnstonesPaintnorthernsemi/Joint-2018-World-Cup-bid-a-risk-276599659.html

Surely the World Cup is more important than the Johnstones Paint northern semi?
