Why do these has beens write/discuss in the media such drivel?

Liverpool legend Steve Nicol has backed Manchester United to sign English duo James Maddison and Declan Rice - but not until next summer.

Leicester star Maddison and West Ham midfielder Rice have both been linked with January moves to Old Trafford.

United are in need of reinforcements following their worst start to a season for 30 years. Nicol believes Maddison and Rice will still see United as a significant step up from their current clubs.

Why would Rice or Maddison leave their successfully developing clubs, for a club one that's in decline and years past their best? Man Utd are living on their name and past glories.

The amount of speculation is a joke, maybe we are becoming far more interesting that most of the other premiere teams? or is the media just crap😂

It does not bother me (and probably many others)? It is merely an observation at how pathetic the sports media has become and how these pathetic pundits get jobs banging on about the same thing. If we did not post comments there would be no forum?

How do we now that with the consistent bombardment of inane rubbish does not affect the players stability? Most probably brush it off, but if you are continually being told how wonderful you are, it could eventually sway your opinion of yourself. These are you young footballers and can be fickle, the pressure these days on them to succeed is very high, so never say never.

Who? 

...there are numerous threads of which pundits such as Danny Murphy. Jenas, Carragher and even Sutton insisting that certain LCFC players deserve to be playing at a bigger club!!!

We either ignore there biased opinions or lock ourselves in dark rooms waiting for the phone to ring!!!!.

Somebody is asked "How can Man Utd be improved".

Somebody replies "By signing two of the highest rated midfielders playing for clubs outside of the traditional big 6 clubs"  

Nothing to see here!

Nicol, Sutton etc. have realised that the money is running out & have to start working for a living.

Sod that, why work when you can get paid very well for talking bollox. Something that the majority of pundits are good at.

I would love to be paid very well for talking bollox but unfortunately I am not an ex professional footballer so I'll stick to talking bollox at the game & on message boards in the pub for nowt.

Never understood why people get so angry over rumours. Just don't read them or pay attention. They're never true anyway.

In answer to your question it’s because someone’s has paid them to give their opinion ....... why does it bother you (and so many) so much?   These articles won’t change anything 

 

It Irks me because some people dont see what is going on here. It can often be the work of an Agent to help unsettle players. Yes the writers get paid to write them but agents also pay them to write an article that could helkp get their player moved on. Similar to the 'cash for questions' scenerio that goes on in the political world.

Yeah, don't worry yourself over stuff like this, right. Life will seem less of a struggle, yeah. Ipso facto, less stress received.

It's a bit like when Mrs. Merton asked Debbie McGee what it was that first attracted her to multi-millionaire Paul Daniels.

What I find frustrating is these type of comments are lapped up by plastics and tabloid readers. I've already had comments along the lines of '.... I see that Maddison is off to Man Utd then'. I can't be bothered to engage mostly but it does get annoying.

You know you're a legend when you've got an anorak with your initials on.
