Where have all the good wall charts gone?
Look, I think I get digital stuff, I’ve worked in mobile and digital marketing for a long time. I like it, there’s a lot of things that have been improved on and made easier by the web.
World Cup wall charts are not one of them.
As I’ve said elsewhere, despite a late in life conversion to rugby, I love the World Cup. I love everything about it, even the sense of believe that grows in every Englishman at this point in the tournament only to be dashed later on etc etc.
And one of the things that I love the most is a wall chart. Not just any old cut out of the newspaper wall chart but a proper one on nice paper where you can record scores and track progress. It’s one of those things, like a bar or a piece of music, it’s hard to describe but you instinctively know it’s right when you hear it or see it.
I’ve really struggled to find one this year, I hope they don’t disappear into the digital age, the World Cup would be a poorer place without them.
PS if anyone has found a great wall chart for this World Cup please let me know.
