Who honestly knows, but surely the chance of a 2 yr deal is more appealing than what he is currently on with us.

Nothing would surprise me at this stage, Magilton could be back in Charge yet.
Just because a guy replaces his name with some official sounding title shouldn't make it any more believable. Most of this stuff is purely for likes/retweets/subscribers in order to make money. If true this is only going to come from either IFA or Vinnie himself. VP doesn't seem plausible as (a) we have a big European game and (b) there is no contract to be had from Peak6, they're leaving. More likely some Rovers fan - aren't they all - trying to disrupt us.

I don't think that account is set up with monetary gain in mind, especially since it's something as niche as an LOI rumours account. Seems to have legitimately good sources and I've heard some people suggest that it might be a player(possibly retired) behind it although you're absolutely spot on with the assertion that it's a rovers fan and he doesn't hide his bias one single bit despite being "All Things LOI".

In saying all that, out of all the things that he's tweeted, I just can't see any truth in it whatsoever.

Cammy Smith has mutually agreed to terminate his contract to return to the UK for personal reasons.

Wouldnt it be great to offload Zahibo and get him back to us, only across the water so not too far from home for him. Imagine him and Stanton together.

Not sure how much money you think is in tweets and podcasting oldfogey! Aidan Fitzmaurice in the Indo has it now so amazingly enough there’s something to this. Suppose now it depends on who approached who and who else is in for it.

He’s been pretty accurate with this predictions to be fair .

VP is out of a job in 5 months so I’m sure he wants to keep his options open. There is no suggestion anywhere that it’s a done deal or that he’d have to leave straight away .

Maybe Aidan Fitzmaurice based his story on a Twitter rumour account. A paper never refuses ink when it comes to football rumours.

But equally will any decent journalist base his professional reputation on a nameless faceless twitter post?

All a journalist has to say is that they have sources. I'm not saying it's the case here, but they have a very easy get out.

Could his source be the operator of the Twitter account who is not nameless to him, but he doesn't know is running the account? All speculation, like VP wanting the u21 job.

IMO, VP would be mad not to be looking at other options after this season if his contract is running out and no sign of renewal.

And will the journalist ever be deemed credible if this same source is making rubbish up..

While this particular story was free, a lot of the Indo articles are pay walled. It's important that their journalists are seen as a **source of information, and are on point with breaking news stories and rumours. (**I left credible out as I couldn't spell it)

Just like players on short term contracts, natural for interest in our staff , and for them to be interested in discussions until / unless they’re tied down .

Can’t see this happening . It looks like a full time position and It would look strange in his CV to leave us so quickly .
Tiny bit of truth I suspect ( IFA interested in considering him maybe ) but an example of pointless online speculation that not news until it’s confirmed
