Just when you think that the Beeb is playing it straight with you, they throw you a wicked curveball that throws you off-balance. A friendly reminder that you can’t trust anyone in football.

With shades of TribalFootball and Daily Mail, BBC Sport starts off with a statement that reads:

Manchester United are considering an £8m summer transfer bid for Hearts and Scotland goalkeeper Craig Gordon, BBC Sport understands.

And after a brief mention about Martin O’Neill watching the Hearts-Kilmarnock game and scouting players, it breaks into a re-hashing of old material. No mention of Manchester United’s supposed interested, nor a discussion of whether Manchester United actually need a 4th keeper (you’d expect them to at least mention the possible exit of one of Manchester United’s current goalkeepers if Gordon were to come in).

It seems that after Arsenal signed their new keeper and with Chelsea ruling out big-money / big-name signings, Manchester United are top of everyone’s list for MSU – making shit up.

However, let’s be realistic.

Do United need Gordon?
