I feel for football writers at the moment, having to make up rumours because there's no actual football taking place to write about.

Hopefully when this is all over they can get back to good, old fashioned, professional football journalism.

{Ed001's Note - they don't need to make up rumours, they can write about other things. There are other things than transfers to talk about with sport. Sadly they are just conmen, not journalists.}

Yeah, that was typed with tounge in cheek. Some of the rumours are just pure entertainment, without a hope in hell of being true - and that's just Chelsea.

I remember a few years ago a mate of mine, who's a bit older, told me that he never looks at rumours anymore. Only reads about players when they're pictured signing the contract. I thought that I'd never be like that - I'm getting there.

{Ed001's Note - I have been like it for years to be honest.}

I believe Ed001 has never recovered from Franck Ribery Deadline Day 2007!

{Ed001's Note - I never have liked Ribery, it was before then. That was why I set up the original site in the first place back in 2001.}

Understandable Ed001. My favourite situation was Ben Yedder going on French Sky TV live a few years ago and calling a journalist out for making up transfer rumours!

{Ed001's Note - more players should do it, but most of them haven't a clue what is going on either. I remember speaking to one former Liverpool player and saying to him he must be gutted to be leaving (as he was a Liverpool fan). He had no idea what I was on about, so phoned his agent to ask if it was true and his agent told him to get in the car and drive down to do a medical as the clubs had agreed a deal.}

The old original football rumours site?

Used to get some great 'my brother knows a barber who cuts the hair of someone who's cousin knows the kit man at. ' rumours on there.

{Ed001's Note - exactly the same stories as the websites put out but at least people explained where they got it from so you knew it was nonsense. Now you have them trying to pretend they are in the know to post up their guesswork.}

The most enjoyable part of this site for me are the conversations about what the club needs from a tactical standpoint and who fans, and Ed's, think could fill that need - whether the club are interested or not.

It's when the questions come direct from tabloid or blog rumours that the problems / abuse seem to start.

{Ed001's Note - that's because people love the thought of X superstar joining and hate to be told it is nonsense. They are like a religious cult, they believe because they want to and will just turn on anyone who points out the inconsistencies in the story etc.}
