Pointless Transfer Rumours
I hate this time of year. There's no actual Premiership football to watch and all you get is a bunch of tedious transfer rumours, not so cunningly placed in the press by agents and representatives of players and managers alike.
Henry to Barca. Every left footed midfielder to Spurs (Pedersen, Figo, Schneider, etc, etc, etc). Villa to Man Utd or Liverpool or someone. The list goes on and on and it's utterly pointless.
Newspapers are so desperate to fill their ever-expanding sports sections that they print every rumour as if it was fact and try to give the impression that they have an inside track into the deals before they happen.
Someone should do yer actual proper scientific study on how many transfer rumours printed over the summer actually turned out to be true. My money is on less than 5%.
