Indeed, like you say, many fans get excited about rumours involving their club and generates a lot of interest/discussion.

But have you have integrity, may not want to just make stuff up. Not sure how you;d find out real transfer deals that are bubbling half the time, unless an agent releases something to the press, or someone sees a player chatting to club officials somewhere, but I imagine that doesn;t happen in public places that often these days, to stop it getting out.

I imagine most pro clubs have processes, structure etc to follow with transfter dealings, to keep it out of the media. If it does get out in this era, I imagine its premeditated by one of the clubs involved, or the agents, rather than Joe Bloggs just saw a player chatting to xyz club officials in a hotel bar.
I guess it's about building contacts that are reliable. The old fashioned approach.

Why couldnt he have joined the Athletic writing about AFCB we are in the Premier League now, does the Athletic have a specialist on us or are we too tinpot?
Ahmed Shooble is our specialist.

He's pretty good but when we went down his output naturally dropped. I assume that they put him on something else.

Like you I'd prefer that we had Jacob but I do like Ahmed's stuff.

He wasn't our Athletic guy when we went down it was Peter Rutzler, who buggered off to report on Fulham immediately. We didn't have one for a good while until Shooble got the gig.

Yes of course you are right.

Rutzler promised he'd still be covering AFCB following relegation which amounted to writing articles on why Ake and Ramsdale left.
