I'm assuming the question is specifically regarding player transfer rumors.
You 'assume' right Harry "...
who do you trust to be honest, solid and/or reliable, when it come to transfers...
I asked because there seems to be no rhyme or reason [consistency if you prefer] to how we view stories linking us to players.
Me? I've noticed, more so this past few windows, that the company tend to leak info first to a select few... Pearce, Reddy and Joyce for example. They tend to be closest to the club. However I believe they are also used to test the water in return for the odd scoop.
Who do I "trust"? Hmm... well I work on the notion that those three are closest to the club but more importantly, (for me anyhow), having decided that this is the case, I no longer cherry pick what I choose to believe.
For example - one, two or all three of them say we are after player X: I will accept that. We then fail to sign that player: I will accept we missed out.
So, in the absence of a definitive list of who we can "trust" - I thought it may be interesting to see who individuals see as being solid sources.
