    Fraud based on what? I'm not a believer anyway, but I fail to see what that tweet is highlighting.

    Wish we could have a list of things he's gotten completely wrong. He's great for Italy but just erratic outside of it.

    Don't think He's that bad, still my go to transfer update source.

    The nerve of some people, calling him a fraud but following Stephen Howson and Indy Kaila for transfer news.

    He is alright. Things change.

    I think only the Bruno one in terms of United was completely off, but then again, the Portuguese are playing and fooling everyone

    Guys don't blame Di Marzio. He said deals are 'a step away' but we all 'know' Woodward and Judge keep losing their footing and falling down the stairs.....:cool:

    I said this in the Twitter transfers thread

    To be fair, has Di Marzio been wrong though (correct me if I’m wrong)? he did say we were waiting on Dybala’s answer (didn’t say Dybala said yes), and the other targets, we don’t really know what’s going on, the transfer window is still open, so there might be some truth to what he’s saying.. even though again, I think we’re done with our signings.

    Why is the caf against him now? Am I missing something?

    He hasn’t actually got anything right this summer, other than reporting what everyone else was reporting. He’s not broken anything new (to us), that’s actually turned out to be true. Been as reliable as that reddit dude.

    Need to stop looking at reporters' credibility in the binary. It's naive to treat them as gods for getting some reports right and is also wrong to treat him as non-credible for one or two inaccurate reports. In this particular case he was fed bad info by a good source. As far as journalism goes it's to his credit that he had those sources

    The guy is good for Italy as that's obviously where his main sources lie, but other countries can be dodgy.

    I think he's hit and miss. Clearly just gassing on Maguire, Fernandes and Llorente. He did break the Dybala story though.

    He either ran out of money or someone hacked him.

    Was right about Maguire, right about Dybala. Looks as though he jumped the gun with Bruno, but I see no reason to disbelieve him when he says we made contact. Fraud though. :houllier:

    Since when was any agent in Portugal a good source? Since when would it be believable that we would be in for Llorente? It's all guesswork from his team, trying to return to former glory.

    Transfer muppets frustration has no logic. They think these journalists control the market.

    He's not declined. He's the same as he always was.

    Any single journalist can only have a finite number of contacts: agents, marketing men, players, coaches, etc.

    In order to get scoops, the journalist needs to remain on friendly terms with their contacts, but that takes time to cultivate and maintain. There are only so many brunches you can go to in a given week.

    Di Marzio clearly has some very good contacts in Italy. I doubt that's changed. But like every other reporter in the world, he bullshits when he needs to, and he follows the herd when he misses out.

    The guy had a string of good luck a few years ago when lots of big transfers happened in his sphere. Now the big transfers are happening outside of his network. I wouldn't be too hard on the guy, just as I wasn't too fulsome when he was getting it right.

    Been absolutely shocking this summer

    He was downgraded to tier 3 on reddit weeks ago, he’s started to report speculation rather than hard news.

    He also previously said Fernandes was on his way to City in May.

    City were never even interested and forced the Portuguese press to release a statement to that effect.

    He's just a mouthpiece for agents who want particular stories out there. His Llorente to United story was especially amusing.

    No one is going to have a 100% record whilst being the first to break stories.

    So he has one or two wrong. Who gives a shit, he's still more reliable than most.

    Well it's not his fault agents have been throwing him red herrings. Where do you think Di Marzio gets his information from?

    After being burnt a little this summer, no doubt he'll re stock and make some changes before he gives out information.

    What an amazing summer from Di Marizo.

    City set to sign Bruno in May. Nope
    United close to signing Bruno. Nope
    United to sign Dybala. Nope
    United in for Llorente. Nope
    United in for Mandzukic yesterday. Nope
    United in for Inaki. Nope
    Was not close to being the first one to report Lukaku to Inter yesterday either.

    What a summer.
