      I dont think any of them know anything really, they make 'educated' guesses and base stories on 1+1 = whatever their narative wants to be.

      Some right whoppers mentioned on here though. Samuel? 

      Another mentioned very rarely if ever gets involved in transfer sh*te which was the title of the question...( Winter)

      I think this 'surprise' signing of van Dijk proves the point that since the summer debacle they are being kept out of the loop now and they were only briefed around 15 minutes or so before VVD announced it himself.

      Definitely a case of lesson learned for LFC.
      That leak cost the club a signing in the summer and has come back to haunt the team all season.

      Probably cost them a bit in terms of a larger transfer fee as well.

      Long may it continue keeping them out of the loop ,sometimes it's best to keep your gob shut & do your  business quietly as we found out the hard way.

      Who said there was a leak? Journalists often go as far as breaking the law to get a scoop. Phone hacking and calling people pretending to be someone else... When there's leaks there should be discipline within the club or to illegally acting journalists. It costs the club.

      I think someone suggested earlier that a table should be made of jourbos and their correct or incorrect predictions to see logically who knows bits and pieces..

      Which journo,
      Who broke the story first,
      Was they correct,
      Was they pissing in the wind ect..

      Used to be a website that monitored papers on transfer stories, all the red tops were single figures up to 12%, the best national was 18%, I believe it was The Times and/or The Guardian.

      If there is data, it can be modelled using WEKA. A free data modelling tool. It can make predictions about future likelihood events from past data. It's got good accuracy if the data is used right.

      Using Ribapuru's post history (past data) we can predict that your next post will be utter sh*te (future likelihood event)

      I'd say that would be highly accurate

      Paul Joyce, Tony Barrett, Melissa Reddy and obviously James Pearce.

      Generally anything they say is going to happen, will happen.

      Time to close this thread. Just follow these three plus James and that's it.
