The latest pif rumour says it'll be done at the end of Jan..when it doesn't happen by the end of Jan can we ban the PIF discussion for at least the rest of the season?

Rumours like this are always about ever shifting goalposts. If you've been burned 4,5 times it's best not to go back to the same source for 6,7,8

The Premier League has won its High Court case against its former China broadcast partner PPTV and has been awarded $213m (@clmmcrthy with the news). Suspect collecting it will be a far harder job. PL canceled PPTV deal in 2020 after its defaulted on payments.
Current Premier League deal in China worth far less than staggering amount agreed with PPTV (owned by Suning, the electronics retailer which has been mired in a financial crisis for past couple years). Suning owner of Inter Milan shuttered its Chinese team weeks after title win.

No, we are not banning the discussion. Maybe that discussion is useless but so are many other topics in this forum. Maybe we can create a new thread for that specific rumor if and when nothing happens next week.

My point isnt that, as a forum, we should ban the ddiscussion, but rather, we should stop allowing random self-made 'journalists' on twitter to make claims that people fawn over and belieive.

I understand what you are saying and I agree it's hilarious when people believe things for gospel, quite like Facebook posts however it is what makes forums what they are, diverse, opinionated and good healthy discussion.

I think my point is, though, that if it doesnt come off (for the 100th time), Kellosamuel should be disregarded as a source of information for this forum. PIF discussions may or may not still occur, time will tell, but we shouldnt bother listening (or posting) about anything he posts.

How many times is someone allowed to be wrong before we start disregarding them? Pretty sure we can find plenty where gds,cds,sky,di marzio are wrong as well.
Weren't that all claiming rom is staying 100%. Just as an example of how accurate they are.

Yes, but they're following the news of the day, this is someone who has no track record, isnt even verified on twitter, its just some idiot twitter troll that some peolpe just wholeheartedly believe.

Being verified doesn't insure your information as accurate. You can't get a track record till people see how your news turns out.

He may very well be just a troll but see the other "trusted" resources as having a great record either.

I get that, but its just some prick who is making up news. There's no track record, or even basis to go with the crap he makes up.

This'll be like the 5th prediction now that he's made about PIF/Inter that hasnt come true. They all 'conveniently slip'. It's no different to the fucking idiots who believe in QAnon. I'm sure 2023 will be the year the deep state finally goes down and Trump invalidates the election results.

And, tbh, even if stuff was actually leaking, some random guy from Liverpool wouldnt be the one on the inside.


This is some idiot troll making crap up and stringing people along. Anyone who has any time of day for kellosamuel is wasting their life.

I understand what you say @.h. but it's not like kellosamuel is the ONLY source for this. There's been talk elsewhere too and while it isn't probably legit elsewhere either, there is talk still. Like that business-whatever paper. It's not the same as some random guy at Twitter.

But really, IMO there hasn't been too much discussion of the PIF deal that it floods the forum, or even this thread. There is no random Twitter guys making up shit over any other deal, only this PIF. So we can let it run. If Twitter random guys making up shit news about Inter getting sold becomes a problem, here in this forum, we can consider setting up some rules for this.

Transfer rumors are different thing altogether as they have their own subforum here.

Also, I don't get the "troll" part in this kellosamuel thing. Why would he troll? My guess is he honestly believes his source(s) and puts that info out. Trolling doesn't fit into this.

People like to make stuff up and get e-famous, even if only for 15 minutes. How many fake celeb deaths do we see, for example? Or fake transfer rumours in the windows? Hell, my friend sent in 'I saw David Villa in the airport' once completely made up and it made it on the BBC page.

Until some actual reputable sources come out with something about PIF since they bought Newcastle, I have 0 belief in any of these rumours


My issue isnt on the forum impact, etc, its more about people beliving, effectively, conspiracy theories. Like anti-vaxxers, QAnon people, all of that stuff.

If we talk about this correctly here, I don't think there is anyone here believing that stuff. We can still talk about here, specially as this kellosamuel is NOT the only source talking about it. Also some Italian people have mentioned PIF. And the history of PIF being interested in Inter, so it's not like someone made up a story that Elon Musk wants to buy Inter.

I'm not claiming there wasnt real PIF interest in Inter, but this guy publishing specific deadlines is making crap up. He gave a '100% guaranteed' twice in Dec, pushed it to Jan, and now he's going to push it again.
