I copy and pasted from the previous thread and just updated it. Takes around a couple of minutes if done that way.

Raging, thank you for your efforts, personally I find your drivel interesting, the facts and the rumours and the conjecture in the posts of others following your statements all good for a Tiger's fan.

One man's drivel etc etc...

I echo Johnthegriff's sentiments here...in spite of Noddy's 'best' attempts to demean the work of RB, I would personally like to thank him for the effort and work in putting this all together under one heading and thus allowing Tigers funs the opportunity to keep up to date with the latest transfers/rumours. :smt041
