      And yep. I do work alongside journalists, value local football journalism and its attempts to survive.
      My agenda , if thats what it is , is to support them whether at the Argus or the Northern Echo or the Eastern Daily Press or the Lancashire Telegraph because they do a valuable service sometimes holding clubs to account, reporting responsibly, and trying to stand up their reporting with sources from the Albion or elsewhere (players, agents, contacts abroad/in other papers) .
      Most coverage of the transfer window especially is very thin stuff indeed. Rumours, lies, agent led guff recycled here and there, just outright fakery on mad Twitter accounts, some very dubious online football sites and by poor guys on national desks having to fill acres of space writing endless transfer rumour blogs and stories from dawn until dusk. Local paper journalism isn't like that.

      I'm not deluded , the 2 full time journalists at the Argus who report on the Albion, filling 2-3 pages of the Argus every day with stories and interviews aren't likely to be breaking transfer stories when Albion scout the world for targets, although they have their moments. And Albion under Barber, Bloom keep everything pretty locked down.

      But to say that the club lies to them, they print it without even thinking about it and or they wouldn't know something about the ins/outs/details of a big transfer story that they've now written about 6 or 7 times on in the last week then yep i'm inclined to post an alternative point of view on here in defence of em.

      All the best to Connor Goldson. I hope he plays first team football and is a success.

      Will miss his smiling face warming up as a sub (but never getting to come on!).

      You said he was economical with the truth. Ie: I read that to mean he was lying
      Being economical with the truth is not the same as lying.

      Agreed. That's in contrast to your earlier comments.

      But to say that the club lies to them
      Again, I didn't.

      Its a euphemism for lying or being misleading. Either way you're implying that Argus reporters, if thats what a club source is doing, are incapable of spotting that and just print what they're told.

      But he wouldn't be able to develop into such a player if not playing regularly so what are you supposed to do?
      In a way, our good luck with injuries and suspensions last season worked against Connor. It wouldn’t have been unreasonable to expect either Duffy or Dunk to pick up a couple of bans or injuries that gave him a chance. Sod’s Law will no doubt dictate that Balogun gets the sort of game time next season that Goldson didn’t. Let’s hope he does as well as CG would, no doubt, have done.

      Good luck Conner and thank you

      Any Rangers fans come to see what we think we'll you have got an absolute bargain I have no doubt he will prove to be the best defender north of the boarder and I for one will look forward to watching his progress
