Summer is the period of the biggest speculations in transfert market. If you’re a known club, you’ll not be saved. But if you’re a high rated club (and we are) prepare you’re heart: you’ll read all possibilities to be written. Sometimes pure dreams, sometimes bullshites, but more often, all those scoops, crazy informations are absolutely false.
So if you want to live an almost peace summer, you’ve got to be prepared technically and mentally to fight rumours. Here comes the rules. Apply them 90% of times:
1.Choose your media: to select true and false informations, the first step is to choose medias, newspapers, to read. You’ve to ban someones without regret. Use this kind of site: http://www.newsnow.co.uk/h/Sport/Football/Premier+League/Liverpool/All+Sources, and you’ll have work but you’ll find true scoops too. For us, www.liverpoolecho.co.uk is a relieble site. And for my part, i didn’t read no more “daily mail” and “daily post”, “CaughtOffside” too, because of false informations published. Generalists medias are prefering sharing rumours rather than investigate and check the truth. About official site? Informations are real, but its come after all speculations been discussed (and it’s normal).
For exemple: the Gerrard commitment. Almost medias speculated about his departure… during many weeks, without hesitating to lie and create. Finally, Liverpoolecho.uk shared the scoop of his commitment, relayed after by the Official site.
2.Never trust a player’s agent: an agent is not a kind of guy in whom a supporter can be confident. He’s only talking about money, for him and his client. He doesn’t give a damn about hopes of fans, and sometimes misquotes player’s things.
For exemple, in France, i heard the story about Loic Remy’s deal. His agent claimed that a deal has been agreed and that Remy is coming…
If my memory is good, Torres agent annouced him leaving the club…
3.Know your club, your players and the manager: their way of thinking, of speaking, their carrier’s desires, their performances… that’s maybe one of the most exciting thing to do for a fan: try to understand and anticipate as he was a part of the squad. Don’t reflect instead of players, but about the player use to reflect.
Some players doesn’t speak too much with medias. Others are happy in their club and doesn’t care with rumours. Others again love the city they’re living, with their happy family. And someones only believe in themselves, in celibrity, in money.
When Kuyt said that he wants to stay, when you know his love for the club, his loyalty, you can trust him.
When you read that Torres “could be interested with playing in Real Madrid” you know it’s impossible because of his know love for his former club Atletico.
But remember Figo, who left his “loved” club Barcelone to Real Madrid for money.
Their are still rumours about players who have reiterate their commitment: don’t believe anymore these medias.
Someones asked themselves about Masch could leave the club but if they had really Heard him talking about his regrets of not having left the club last summer, that he was learning italian during WC in South africa, they would know that it was logical he will go.
Many times rumours are made by agents, and unprofessional medias which only want to sell on lies.
You’ve got now three weapons for not being a sheep, but I have too be honest: of course my notice is only for novices. Most of you
know what they have to do with speculations and rumours, and when they select, they use those weapons.
We are a club which can still attract and keep key players, of course with money but with sportive challenges. And that’s because we are the biggest english club in trouble that rotten medias are delighted to damage it.
Be passionate fans, breath LFC, live LFC, but make it avoiding trap ! Biggest they are, false they are.
