'Mediawatch' on the OS

Whats the point - all old news anyway. Looks like someone needs to have something to do - wonder who that might be?

The Boleyn Insider strikes again.

Clueless, classless. Has Sullivan's paws all over it.

Judging by the endorsement of The S*n I'd imagine this is Karren Brady's doing.

I'm disgusted that the club would do anything to promote that rag considering various lies & hacks that they've printed about West Ham & England players in the past, that's without mentioning the whole Hillsborough situation.

They post all their nonsense to Facebook every 5 minutes.

They just did a 'on this day' post that had Tomkins debut and Ashton scoring. Good times.

The board don't care about such moral dilemmas as long as they're furthering their own business interests at the time. Of course there are exceptions to this rule... such as using club money to make donations to the Tory Party, they're quite happy to do that.

Both Tottenham and Liverpool have a Media Watch which includes transfer targets and players who are unhappy and who they should sign etc.

Here's Arsenal's linking then with Butland: http://www.arsenal.com/media-watch

Absolute non issue and another pointless thing for people to wind themselves up with :asleep:

Apparently it's come over from American sports like the NFL who do this things regularly. It's a bit weird, but as others have said other clubs do it too so it's not just us.

To be honest it's the kind of thing I'd expect from a fan site, but not the official site.

Man U have been doing this for years. Not sure I agree with it as an official thing, but we're far from the only team doing it.

Not looked at this before. Today's piece links to three stories. Two of which originated on the club's own website...
