    As long as he posts a picture of himself with his arm around Mork the Pitsmoor Owl, Yeah ? and changes his moniker to ' De- dah loyal' then he should be forgiven.

    Also I agree about the fake outrage even if the lad's just made it up.

    I think the "outrage" is because he made it out to be a certainty that we were signing someone who most barnsley fans would like us to sign, rather than saying "my mate ses.. ."

    If he's done it in good faith though ? - I can't remember him on any wind ups or anything before. Anyway, there's time yet.

    Also if anyone wants facts then an internet BBS is probably not the place to look.

    Feel sorry for the lad if the stick I get is anything to go by.

    Summer 2016 I posted I think we’ll sign Lloyd Isgrove late in the window. We tried and tried. Hecky wanted him, Lloyd wanted to come and in the end the Saints manager pulled it to use him the the JPT.

    People are still bringing it up as recent as this week just because they don’t agree with my style of posting.

    People who post ‘ITK’ info on this site have a little to gain and a lot to lose. I could just keep this between my family and friends but I don’t. I choose to put it on here because we’re all Barnsley fans and we all feel the frustration or excitement regarding club transfer activity.

    My goal is not to attention seek. My goal is to deliver accurate information and try to create somewhat of a buzz on here. All information I get is secondary. I’m going to get things wrong, not because I’m lying or I’ve made it up. But because things in football change quickly.

    We had the Austrian lad in the club last week. A fee agreed with the club and he’s been offered a deal. I wasn’t going to announce the name but the stick I got for saying signing Kieffer Moore was ‘exciting times’ I had to shake off somehow. I felt the best way was to hopefully create a buzz regarding the Austrian.

    By the way I still feel Kieffer Moore is an exciting signing.

    Back to posting info on here...You get something right and all people want to know is who’s next, when the next one, what positions, who’s telling you this? You get something wrong and people bring it up for months on end completely ignoring the numerous solid bits of info provided in the past. I’m fully expecting stick if the Austrian doesn’t sign and bizarrely I’m expecting stick if Kieffer Moore flops. I did say he was exciting after all.

    Anyway go easy on Barnsley Loyal. My personal feeling is he’s caught word of something and gone for the glory. Hopefully he’ll be right eventually but I get the feeling it will be based more on a gamble that legitimate info.

    Good post this Chris. The majority are grateful for your info, me included. I personally sometimes get a little frustrated when people dangle the carrot in regards to signings but in all honesty its probably just jelousy that another fan knows something that I dont.

    If BarnsleyLoyal is who I think he is, then he works for the media team at Shaw Lane. There are a couple of ex barnsley employees at shaw lane who know Hecky and still keep intouch with him so the info he gives could actually have some substance.

    You described it as fake outrage so you clearly understand it’s a joke referring to the jokey “I’ll support Wednesday” comment. Christ some folk on here are sensitive.

    To be fair it’s still only Thursday. Obviously the abuse is mental, but a bit of a weird thing to make up as being absolutely nailed on. Especially the ‘had medical today’. Only Thursday though, still time..

    According to the OP the medical was supposed to have been on Tuesday and Fletcher was supposed to be arriving yesterday. He deserves the pillock but then so do many others with their predictions - Hecky off to Sunderland, Hecky off to Forest, etc. One thread this week said Hecky wouldn't be here on Saturday. They post gossip as fact. If there isn't any gossip they make it up. Why can't they just wait till the club announces something instead of all the attention-seeking me me me rumours dressed as facts.

    Can't see real anger or bitterness against him, a slice of disappointment maybe.
    However, now he's gone elsewhere he needs to know what he is..... :D

    Theres Media news,

    Alternative media,

    Consumer generated content,

    Exaggerated and false information,

    Opinions,

    Then theres BULLSHITTERS who do things irrationally.

    It seems strange that people get so wound up about this subject. In my opinion rumours should be treated as exactly that. Think some folk should just wait for official announcements if it's that upsetting when a transfer doesn't come to fruition. Although that could be even more distressing in certain instances (McBurnie anyone?).

    Who's to say Barnsley fc have'nt used this leak to flush out whoever's been leaking information from inside. Conspiracy Theory.
