disappointing from SI

Recommended Posts

I don't generally notice the press/social media items in game, but this one stood out to me. Moneybags Chelsea? What an absolutely idiotic press item. I know that players occasionally encourage another player to join their club, but to reference the money involved? I don't think any player would be classless enough to do that. In private sure, not in some public statement. Absolutely preposterous. I know it's just a small little flavor item, but sheesh!

To be fair the press release doesn't say the player has said that. The title isn't a quote.

Fair enough, but then they don't have any direct quote from Christensen. They're implying that he's included money in his comments. I suppose rags like The Sun do this all the time, I gujuess that's what SI are trying to represent? 

Even still, it's just not something you'd see. That a player is publicly encouraging a move is plenty enough of a blurb/story on its own. No need to add some nonsense about money which a player would never say publicly,

That's not how I read it at all - this is pretty realistic when there is a transfer rumour, press will always guess-timate the money involved

Press always does that, irl and in game they can always say something like "x manager is angry with y manager" when you said something so neutral that has nothimg to do with hate, thats how press is nowadays

As noted, this is not a quote but a headline. Exactly the sort of headline you would see in a red top. And a fair one at that, since Chelsea are rich. You are reading what this is in totally the wrong way.
