Which do you see as the world's toughest media to deal with that puts the most pressure on coaches,teams,players etc.

I´d vote for the idiotic Spanish media. And if not toughest then certainly the whackiest and most biased towards their teams. The shit AS/Marca write about Real and EMD/Sport write about Barca is just crazy.

Id like to see another media outlet that has managed to oust a top teams management.

The Italian media probably, the amount of TV time allotted for analysis of the minutest detail, why a coached made a substitution, why the referee gave a particular decision, general transfer rumors, putting pressure on coaches and players, it's just staggering.

Definitely not the Indian media, they just don't care.

the romanian media is exploring the faults of football and theres more conspiracy talk on TV than actual football news. The fact that every little news and every comment is being depicted and analyzed might seem crazy but they find out some foul stuff again and again. The pressure of the media makes the authorities work more and its a good thing as the corruption in football in Romania is getting ironed out.

Same happened in Serbia, some reporters found out a big part of the truth behind Serbian football, exposed countless people, clubs, involved mafiosi etc they even arrested the former Red Star chairman and his goons and in the end..it all went quiet again, after a stormy few weeks he got released and is actually on his way back to corruption.

The media in New York City is only rivaled by the English. New York puts huge pressure on teams that are historically shit even.

Russian media is very underrated when it comes to pressure. Just ask Hiddink, one day he's a national hero and the next he's being accused of not caring for the NT ( 1-0 win over Lichtenstein).

The sheer size of the Russian media is crazy and even the teams with no fans (FK Moskva) get a packed news conference after every game.

English media is what all coaches in Italy wish for, they talk about the game for 1 day and then move on, the teams are not out under stupid pressure and the coaches dont have to deal with BS that has been twisted from the media on a daily basis.

In Italy they must find a 'scandal' to talk about for the whole week. The sports show on a Sunday night go on for about 2hours+ but there will be more football shown on Match of the day in a 1hour programme.

I think either the Spanish or Brazilian. The Spanish media, especially Marca, seem to release news before Real do, and they have consistently affected how things have occured at the club. I think the Brazilian media is mega tough on the national team, and a lot of players can't handle the pressure.

The english media seem to be more interested in players private lives
