Man City - The Times Get It Right

Google language translator


Out of all the tabloid and broadsheets available in the UK, when it comes to paper rumours regarding potential new Manchester City players, The Times, on average gets it right more than any other.

With the January transfer window only days away, here is a list of British papers that have proved themselves accurate when it comes to Eastlands player ins and outs.

The list covers the last couple of years paper rumour talk.

I think we can discount the mirror stat, from the look of it they have tagged on City's name to every player mentioned, as a result they are bound to get it right sometimes.

The story goes there was always a mole/fifth columnist at City who fed negativity to Das Daily Mail. Could be the Times has somebody talking to them. Been a lot of divisive stories knocking about again this season. Need to root out the bad eggs.
