He’s done it again.
Now I confess to missing this in real time. Being off Twitter is, overall, a wonderful experience, but I do sometimes miss the breaking news element of it all. Especially when it comes to Bolton Wanderers news.
What I don’t miss, however, is the likes of our mate Alan Nixon, of the Sun.
This was today’s gem:

Swiftly debunked my the BEN’s own Marc Iles:
Big meeting today and - as you'd expect - some peeved players at one stage. Session was ended early but there is no talk of refusing to train for the rest of the week, as I understand it. Happy for anyone to correct me. #bwfc— Marc Iles (@MarcIles) July 29, 2019
I know who I would trust.
So why does Nixon insist on peddling this garbage? I’m sure some would argue that the very nature of his employer makes it his go-to default standard. Maybe he likes the attention?
What we do know is that at times like this there will be a million twitter scaremongerers - and don’t even get me started on Facebook.
All we know right now is that right now we don’t know a single thing.
That will likely change tomorrow. Until then, I wouldn’t go giving the fud any attention.
