    The press is extremely important to get the real story, ask questions, investigate etc. Otherwise your information is canned statements only telling you what they want you to hear.

    Investigate, real story? Once they can't go further they fill with imagination. I can see the frustration of a lot of managers/footballers

    They have way too much power than they should have imo.
    Press in general, not just football

    This, the fact that they can and do just make things up is ridiculous. Even supposed reputable sources such as the BBC either straight out lie or fail to check accuracy of things they report, time and time again. They even brag about how they "create" the news.

    When they can do this, without any comebacks, with real news stories, then it's no wonder such a trivial thing such as sports reporting, especially transfer related, can be 100% made up stuff.
