Gossip Folks – The Transfer Rumour Mill (Winter 2013 edition) Part I
The start of January sees the start of the Winter transfer window – and with it the speculation and rumour that goes with it. For the last two transfer windows I have kept track of rumours so people can see who really has got their finger on the pulse and who is just making stuff up.
The rules are simple; I’m only looking at transfer stories from “legitimate sources” – so for example The Mirror and the Daily Mail are in because they’re newspapers whereas Tribalfootball and Clubcall are out because they work on a much more gossipy basis. I will consider news from foreign sources with similar caveats – ie it’s got to be a proper news source and not some work of fantasy. I’m going to put them all together into a spreadsheet which I’ll then link on here and update you all about once a week or so.
As we all know this winter is going to be about sales – who Blues are going to lose to ensure that they keep their head above water financially. We’ve already seen a plethora of rumours regarding Jack leaving with Southampton and Liverpool already touted as potential destinations whilst Curtis Davies is supposed to have interested Southampton and Reading.
As always, if you have seen something I haven’t please let me know. I’m especially intrigued to see if the Nikola Zigic transfer window thing crops up again – he’s supposed to have left us in the last three transfer windows and I wouldn’t be surprised if his agent cranks things up a fourth time.
I’m hoping to have the first installment up of the spreadsheet on or around the 7th of this month.
