    I didn't want to write this on page 329 of the ITK discussion... so:

    There are two ways to tell.

    #1 is obvious, track record. There are people who keep track and this helps some. Though many word things cleverly and get credit for their vagueness (I don't give them credit, but some do).

    #2 is equally important, specific wording. Some ITK's say straightforward information: i.e. Kaka is a done deal, will be arriving for a medical next week. Or even, "Levy iwent to watch Moutinho today, no bid yet." People that write like this have information that can either be right or wrong, no in between. But then there are those who say things like: "My source said we will bring in at least 1 of our 3 main youngster targets, Ronaldouchno, Adams, and one more who's name slips my mind." Whenever they leave an open door to use as an escape, they are clearly full of shit (usually it is after repeating info some other ITK's already stated).

    So I ask you twitterers this: When you see someone leave an open door ITK comment, call them out on it.

    As for the rest, how else can you spot a bullsh*t ITK comment? Discuss...

    Anybody who claims, or has 'ITK' in their name or hides behind a rather vague alias is full of shit.

    Surely it's if they call anything right determines there ITK status

    Sometimes I feel bad when I complain about the ITK's, because [MENTION=5155]spursman18[/MENTION] puts on so much effort on this. I appreciate it, even though I don't believe them, I keep on reading them.

    If this is in reference to Adam Suter, I'm fairly sure that's not what he was doing.
    If not, you're absolutely right. Easton/Eatson (whatever his name is) is clueless.

    If they say we're going to sign Leandro Damiao, I know they're full of shit.

    Suter's full of shit too. Prove me wrong.

    They feed on the drama and the thrill of toying with people and flat-out making shit up. Protecting their Tweets and stuff, constantly backtracking. It's a joke.

    What's rich to me is that they all get offended and pretend to be surprised when people call them out. Neil Eatson has said we were signing Llorente, Falcao, Oscar, Moutinho, and probably 5 others and he's baffled and upset when people say he should probably just shut the **** up.

    The problem is, there's no way to prove anything with these people. Suter's been fairly good with his 'news' so far, and hasn't mentioned anywhere near the amount of players that Eatson/Akqayid did, suggesting that he may be slightly more reliable.
    There's no way to actually know for sure (until they're proven to be WUMs), you just kind of have to go along with it, taking everything with more than a pinch of salt.

    Then what's the point of giving the info? Suter has said repeatedly that Moutinho is ours. Why say it if not for attention if you're not actually sure? It serves no function.

    I have no doubt that a few of these guys have a source or two - and info concerning that source is generally really good, and that they get some correct general information or at least some ITK club rumors. But the guys that go on and on like they have Levy on speed dial and have info on every player and every mood are full of shit. They are the ones that get me fed up. The ones that write something once every few of weeks, or even less I have much more respect for.

    ITKs are like Horoscopes, TalkSport, the Daily Fail - we know they are complte gonads but they are a bit of fun. My horoscope for today says I should "watch out for Grand Pianos falling onto me from 30 storey high buidlings and avoid packs of hungry wolves" - so I am staying indoors just in case!

    How to tell if they're full of sh*t?

    Do they officially work for the football Club?
    If the answer is YES - There may be some truth in what they say.
    If the answer is NO - They're offically full of sh*t I'm afraid. I once remember ITKs tipping David Villa to join us. I also remember Kaka being rumoured to sign for us last minute.

    So I say this:

    If we're all required to take what ITKs (and even tabloid/Daily Mail journalists) say "with a pinch of salt",
    we'd all die of dehydration.....
