    I’m not peddling crap, I’m sharing what both Sky, the Chronicle and the Telegraph have all said.

    I hope you’re right, but this would be a pretty awful blog if I believed a fan’s opinion over three fairly credible news outlets.

  3. FFS – stop rehashing these stories, it’s someone new everyday, it’s obvious no ones what’s going on.

    These “credible” agencies have space to fill !!!

    I’m sure if I walked around St James in a suit and tie I would be linked with the job.

    These round-up pieces are all of today’s news in one place for those coming back from work who don’t want to scroll through every article.

    Not rehashing stuff for the sake of it, but can’t really ignore Sky’s Bruce claims in an article that rounds up all of the top stories of the day.
