Nothing gets a fan’s pulse racing quite like a salacious transfer rumour. It doesn’t matter how old you are, and how many times you’ve been hurt before, there’s something about seeing a top, top player linked with your club that seduces your common sense.

There was no Google to gather research on exotic names. And there were no ITK (In The Know) sources to ratify the rumours. What you saw was what you got. You were at the mercy of headline writers who would routinely pull on your heartstrings.
