So said Pellers today. In other word all the rest were BS. Surprise?
No Vic, no surprise at all. Sometimes i'm sure that a good portion of the rumours actually start in here. Maybe its the way the media work now? Browse fan forums, see who they want or really dont want, then wind up the gullible by using it as a legit story. Then other outlets take it one step further otherwise the first outlet gets the "exclusive insider info". We see things like "close", "flying over" or "snub" and it adds gives credibility apparently.
And as we know, various twitter 'in the know' attention seekers hedge their bets for fear of appearing to know absolutely **** all, thereby rendering them useless. ( not referring to anyone on here )
In fairness, they know full well, football fans go 0-60 in about half a second and take a random rumour as gospel.
Think of all the pointless words and clicks in regards to transfers this window, then balance it against the minimal amount of deals actually done.
Jim White gets singled out on here. All he does is condense a months worth of bull**** into his nail-biting grand finale. He's an odious twat but he'll be throwing bait out there as long as the public keep biting. Lets be honest, football supporters tend to fall for the trick more often than Wylie Coyote from Roadrunner. In our case more in hope than expectation.
