What is the point of that ? May as well be titled Fab's rehashed waffle of old news everyone knows.

What did he say they're that you did not already know as I heard nothing I have not seen a million times before.

It's just so completely weird to me how many people get taken in by a total fraud . It's like Trump supporters all over again
It's weird to me what you think here is waffle. Transfer stories aren't something that's always going to have new detail every day. He's given some information on where we are at and moved on.

He's answering questions on the twitch, not waffling out of choice on schedule. Also some reports suggest there has been numbers discussed whereas he's said there not even remotely there yet.

He’s basically the new Di Marzio. Managed to get good information a couple of times and is living off that with zero recent credibility.
If I remember correctly, other journalists began to call him out at the end of last summer’s transfer window.
They seem to think he jumps on other’s news right at the end of a saga and his “here we go” stick is a way to deflect from this as it caters to his fanatic followers.

I see Romano as a news aggregator. I assume that he has a few genuine contacts, but most of it is just copying from other sources and passing it on as his own insights. To be fair to him he seems reasonably clever about what he's picking up, filtering out a lot of the BS, so there's still some value to his reporting. Just not nearly as much as he'd have you believe.

The fact that his best buddy seems to be Christian "CFraudBayern" Falk (who managed to produce terrific reports like Xabi Alonso to Gladbach or even some stellar reporting about Bayern's dealings, despite working with Bild's network) also tells you something about Romano's standards and priorities.

Can't spell Mkhitaryan
Good or bad, he's still talked about more than any other reporter.

I don't get why the hate though, if you're not into him, ignore him! It's as easy as that!

I think it's pretty obvious Di Marzio is his boss. He at the very least used to be, and the majority of Romano's "scoops" you'll see on Di Marzio's twitter a few minutes beforehand, before Romano posts and tags him/and other journalists.

Like others have said, Romano is an aggregator, useful for keeping up to do date, but he isn't some Godly ITK.

All this hate because you don't like that he tries to make a living for himself?? He's clearly not making things up, look at his takes on Leicester and PSG transfers. No one batted an eye at those, but when it comes to united just because things don't move as fast as other clubs and he gives the same update sometimes cause there's nothing new he's a bs merchant.

Ohh dear... He has set so only subscribers can watch previous videos. That's the worst kind of twitch people :nono:

Didn’t this guy used to be Di Marzio’s right hand man? When did he suddenly become 10x bigger? I guess speaking English really helps your transfer muppet career.

It's amusing how riled up people get on here about Romano. He becomes a bigger talking point than the transfer rumours :lol:

You are such an angry little sausage.

I think this bloke is a bit of a bluffer but the rage at him just makes the angry few look like weirdos.

He wasnt wrong about Cuisance though. The deal fell through but it was actually in place
Well if contracts were signed then the deal would have been finalized, wouldn't it? And as far as I'm aware medicals indeed not being completed, but actually failed, was later given as the reason for Leeds backing out.
It seems pretty obvious that he copied Bild's reporting and since he was a couple of hours late he just added a couple of steps to the process, since these procedures are in 99% of cases just mere formalities. This time they weren't and he exposed himself.

A contract can be signed with the medical result being a clause. Point being sometimes deals fall through

You mean medical as in " Medicals completed, " as per Romano?
Medical completed doesnt mean all results are in. A similar thing happened with Liverpool and the french player, cant remember his name. Anyway point Im making overall is that none of these people are going to be 100% right all the time because things happen, deals fall apart etc.

There's plenty of people here with an unhealthy obsession with the guy, feeling compelled to find ways to discredit him. It's weird.

Transfer rumours are fun to read. Not sure if watching someone talking about it on twitch would be any fun. Like hearing someone telling you bollocks to your ears eventhough you already knew the thing he's gonna talk about are most likely made up stories.

As opposed to those bending over backwards in bending the truth to defend him? Even making an entire thread on the fraud ?

These tweeters know agents, not club representatives, and agents use them to peddle whatever narrative they need them to for their own benefit. All this stuff should be taken with a massive pinch of salt. For some reason many fans think its all true and actually develop opinions about people/clubs off of the back of it. Bonkers

you can really tell by the way he phrases stuff he knows feckall :lol:
“On next days” that phrase really irritates me!

Sometimes I think he’s just like a palm reader or a clairvoyant. But I do think he has info at times. He must have some contacts or connections.

This exactly. The majority of his information is from agents. Like I said when he mentioned about some random Chelsea youth player going out on loan, the player's agent gave him that info to boost his client's profile a bit and he'll give Romano info on a bigger client of his in the future.

Mark Goldbridge aka Brent…
I’ve only ever seen clips of him, no long segments.

Is he satire? Like is he a character or is that actually him? The fact that I have to ask this doesn’t really bode well.

Goldbridge is massively self aware and plays up to the camera. It works, I find the bloke funny, less so when he's raging about us because he's often playing to the worst part of our fanbase, but watch him talk about non Utd games, he's throughly entertaining.
