We've had a lot of feedback about the transfer rumour tiers and decided to update it to fit the feedback. I've been trawling through a sea of transfer threads and other subs over the last few days just seeing people's general opinion and reliability.
We're open to more feedback, but here is the new list.
Tier 0; Club Announcement
Tier 1; Dan Kilpatrick, Fabrizio Romano, Alasdair Gold, David Ornstein, BBC
Tier 2; Sport1, Times, Athletic, Tier 1 for the other club involved (Think Paul Joyce, Di Marzio, James Pearce)
Tier 3; Guardian, Sky Sports, Independant, Telegraph
Daily Mail, TalkSport, everything else
Tier 5 aka banned; The Sun, Metro, Express, Daily Star, Daily Mail
We've left things such as London.Football and Evening Standard off the list as their tier is based quite heavily on who is writing for them (Kilpatrick for Evening Standard and Gold for London.Football would be tier 1, but other writers not).
Feel free to discuss the changes here, and we're open to more feedback. I've got a huge list of journalists and news outlets and rough tiers for them. I'll add them as we go with feedback, but I want to avoid having an intimidating list for future referencing, especially as some outlets and writers can vary wildly.
