The transfer window, yet again, has managed to become a breeding ground for lies, more lies and damned lies.
Step up the Scottish Express Sport, who ‘broke’ the news a short while ago that Vinicius Souza is about to sign for PSV.

Fast forward half an hour, and we’re told otherwise by a Dutch football journo who is clearly more knowledgeable than anyone in the Scottish fitba world in this particular field.
Even geïnformeerd naar verhaal over Vincius Souza en PSV. Agenten van de Braziliaan ontkennen desgevraagd allebei (in het Spaans en Engels) een Schots verhaal dat hij bij PSV gaat voetballen. De beslissing over zijn toekomst is wel nabij en valt waarschijnlijk al deze week.— Rik Elfrink (@RikElfrink) July 6, 2022
Translation: Informed about the story about Vincius Souza and PSV. When asked, agents of the Brazilian both deny (in Spanish and English) a Scottish story that he will play football at PSV. The decision about his future is near and probably already this week.
So. GIGPOD have only went and jumped the gun and made ourselves look (even more) stupid thanks to this guesswork by the wonderful Scottish Express.

Thankfully we never spent all summer convincing ourselves he was signing and marking out about it.
Looking forward to the end of it already. Can see weeks of more tiresome crap like this.
Who’d be a football fan in the modern era?!
