'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The Final Manager Link List... !

Just for prosperity really... the final who do we want and manager links list with all but the right reports crossed out!

Hope the coverage has been ok folks, we wanted to update and list the links and obviously discuss the different managers we could go for/were linked to but wanted also to avoid the EXCLUSIVE when we know it isn't and the 'sources' + announcements that mislead.

It doesn't always chase the 'hits' the same but it is how we like to roll on Vital, honest and straight up!

Green Villan

The Fear
It is a laugh ain't it, especially the annual Robbie Keane link lol
Green Villan
Yep, the transfer gossip lists will start heating up very soon.
Pride of Lions
I think we should start claiming exclusive even when it isn't mate, and I do enjoy the idea of saying that Lambert's press conference will be held tomorrow at 3.33am FACT because it gives us numerous follow ups where we change the time whilst believing that we are making people think we actually know what we're on about. Far more fun that I'm sure lol
mike_field
well, the blogs all do it mike, they even announce non managers and have excluisives on martinez that we'd been talking about for weeks! lol
