    I've no issue with anyone posting what they like re transfers and possible outdoings, but then I don't tend to believe things til they happen, especially in the realms of the internet and media.

    Fwiw I like reading about rumours of players and any potential transfers concerning us.

    However, if you imply something is definite by saying something like "promise this is all the truth" and "I'll become a Wednesday supporter if it doesn't happen" then you should expect a bit of flak.

    Thats my take on the whole thing - Im still unsure if its a deliberate wind up because he knows we wall want it to be true or if he had been given information that was bullsh*t.
    I know if it was me I would have hedged a bit and said something like I've heard Fletcher might be coming and he was due a medical, rather than such a definite statement. After all transfers can still go wrong after the last minute (McBurnie) or when the player doesnt sign.
    In any case if you offer to support Wednesday if you are wrong you must expect a fair amount of stick if it turns out that you were indeed wrong

    May not be a wind up but where ever the information came from it was never close to being legitimate.

    The problem is , we have a core of posters who do not know the definition of the word patience , they are desperate for positive news & hang on every thread, no doubt checking every ten minutes for updates , then if the outcome is not to their liking , it does not go down well . People share their information for what ever reasons , some for debate , some to be helpful & others just for the wind up , thats how it is , I personally think when people are posting transfer news , we all love a bit of speculation but I always treat it with interest but also caution & wait & see what develops but like I said before , some people are bordering on desperate for news & soon get shirty if nothing develops

    If you take anything that someone you don’t know says on the internet as gospel it’s you that’s daft not them.

    There’s a website where you can see that though so it’s not controversial Whitey’s World of Wankery. .

    Well ladies and gentleman just been down to Sheffield for my season ticket

    Apologise to everyone I cannot explain how embarrassed I am after telling you what I was told

    When asking the source what’s happened he’s not saying cannot say anymore

    So god knows what’s happened

    Come on the blue and white wizards

    There’s nothing to be embarrassed for in my opinion.

    You’ve been given information from a reliable source and have helpfully posted that information on this forum. It’s not your fault if the information was inaccurate or that the move hasn’t yet materialised.

    Thank you for sharing nonetheless.
