    This is probably worth a thread by itself, but the Naylor-bashing fraternity surely need to have a look at themselves after a pretty undistinguished transfer window. As far as I can see, Mr Naylor has been spot on with every rumour he has dismissed, and when he has stood behind a story (Ryan) he's been right again.

    It seems that some on here would prefer him to throw out a series of wild punts in the style of certain national writers whose success rates range from poor to those of a blind darts player. Unlike AN, those scribblers are all willing to put their reputations on the line for exclusives, because their reputations are worth zero and another flier that ends up way wide of the mark can't possibly damage them any further.

    Let's remember that an 'exclusive' can be many things. 'A story that nobody else wanted' is one well-known definition. But in August and January it's mainly a story that is complete nonsense and that nobody else would write.

    When I started writing for Gulls Eye, I chose Not Andy Naylor as my byline to indicate that I was not to be taken seriously. If the real Andy Naylor writes that a transfer is happening, my default position would be to believe it, and vice versa.
    My default mode is read rumor, get a bit excited, wait an hour check in with AN on twitter and either get excited or dismiss.
    Standing in the park, I was wondering why a frisbee looks larger the closer it gets...then it hit me

      Looks good from the YouTube clips, plus the Leicester goal was superb. Sign him up!

      But is it just handful slagging off Naylor, their/his noise and repetitive posts giving the appearance of more folk?

      From the youtube footage we may well have a player, if the signing goes through, with the potential to excite as much as Vicente did. Exciting times. Now for a Striker or two!!
      It's not the size of the Cannon, it's the power of the shot.

      My issues with AN are nothing to do with his only writing about stuff he is at least 90% sure on and everything to do with his attitude towards fans. He so clearly enjoys having a dig at fans because they speculate (it really is what fans everywhere do and indeed should do) it can be no surprise when they have a go back.
