Then they're fucking stupid!

How many times has A&C stated in his ITK threads "treat all info with a dose of salt" ??

How many times has Trix told us "the club is working hard, but it's impossible to say how it'll unfold"?

How many times has JJ come on here & told us "look, things change all the time, even when the player is in Levy's office" (think Willian).

Sure, put a bit of faith in what's said, but to believe it as 100% fact, in a landscape that is constantly changing, is downright bloody stupid.

Anyone who takes ITK as gospel, is setting themselves up to be disappointed, as well as constantly filling thread after thread with bullshit protestations about how shit Levy/THFC are at getting players in.
Not directed at you Coopsie but your posts raises the age old question again, if one doesn't believe in ITK, why does one read it?

Just so I can get in a panic and throw all my toys out the pram and blame all and sundry at the club for being ................. add your own words here:)

For something to chat about?

Or, perhaps, as a 'guide' to help us know what player, or type of player we're targeting?

One can believe something without accepting it as gospel buddy. Like I intimated in my post, even JJ & Trix etc are aware that things can change very quickly in the seedy world of transfers, just as they are aware that their info is far from set in stone (y)

So if people are using it for whatever reason them why complain about it? If someone is using it, then it has a value, to use it and complain about it is double standards which says more about the individual than it does about the ITK provider they are complaining about.

That's the thing, though. I haven't complained about anyone, I merely stated that it's downright stupid (perhaps shortsighted is a better term?) to take any ITK as gospel.

As I said in my original post, A&C is constantly reminding (begging) people to apply salt to all ITK posts . Just as Trix, JJ & other ITK's have repeatedly reminded us that, although good info at the time, in the transfer world, things can & do change very quickly (again, think of Willian).

That was all I said. There was no mysterious undertone, or sly dig. The post I originally posted, was in response to someone who had got rather irate because the ITK info hadn't come to fruition.

£33m, likely well over £100k per week for a player from the French league, who wouldn't even be the main striker here, it's the right call walking away to be fair. Bit of a strange one for Chelsea but I guess they are hoping for Drogba mk2.
