Social networking sites are becoming unbearable with the constant stream of rumours about foreign players from not only local journalists but so claimed ‘in the know’ reporters from all corners of the world.
These reporters (especially the Kuwaiti ones) constantly promise news but nearly always fail to actually deliver it, and end up apologising every night. Even I, a sometimes gullible guy, have realised that these ‘in the know’ people clearly know nothing and just spout constant rubbish.
Seeing people not only actually believing them but then asking them for more information is becoming, frankly, quite annoying. But even more annoying is the people who start stupid, ridiculous rumours like ‘Arry to Forest, Maradona to Forest and Michael Owen to Forest. In many ways I can’t wait until we have a new manager, a full squad capable of pushing for promotion in coming seasons and the transfer window closes.
As soon as August ends, every fan across England will breathe a sigh of relief at not having to see these ludicrous rumours anymore. Newpapers all over the country are full of rumours from their ‘sources’ to the point where they even often dedicate a page of utter trash to these rumours – and, shock horror, the odd true story.
Over the years, I have learnt never to take a transfer rumour seriously until it actually happens and that the majority of the ‘in the know’ people are actually just annoying individuals messing others around.
In conclusion, social networking has increased the amount of rubbish spread across the country and in Forest’s case, thanks to all these Kuwait reporters, across the globe.
