Gregg Evans in The Athletic.

Gregg Evans knows nothing.  He is just standing on the line for a tap in and then some people will say he knows stuff because what he said this morning.

I don't like the Birmingham Mail and all their clickbait articles and annoying website, but Gregg Evans has probably broke more Villa stories than any other journalist aside from John Percy.

I disagree.  He now has said that 'Aston Villa will listen to offers for Birkir Bjarnason and Lovre Kalinic '  

Real in the know stuff.  Would never have thought that, right out of the blue that one.

Where? No tweet and nothing on The Athletic itself.

There's a live transfer Q&A bit on the Athletic here: https://theathletic.com/1121497/?redirected=1

The Gregg Evans Villa relevant bit below...

Quote

Good morning. Here's a brief outline of Aston Villa's transfer plans in the remaining hours of window.
So, as many of you who follow me on Twitter would have seen late last night - Douglas Luiz, the Brazilian midfielder is close to completing his £15m move from Manchester City.
He's been in his homeland for the past week but is now on the way to the UK and will link up with his team-mates either later today or tomorrow.
The striker search is also picking up pace. Villa had been checking out a French forward but I'll provide some more details on that later if there's any progression.
One player who will not be moving to the Midlands, though, is Galatasaray goal-getter Mbaye Diagne. Ignore the links. They're not true.
As for Saïd Benrahma, the Brentford attacker, there could be some movement later in the day. If Villa get a breakthrough, I'll let you know.
Elsewhere, Scott Hogan is closing in on a loan move to Stoke City as I reported yesterday.
Villa will listen to offers for Birkir Bjarnason, the Icelandic midfielder, too.
And I'd expect goalkeeper Lovre Kalinic to secure a move away before close of play tomorrow. Villa can't keep four goalkeepers happy until January, that's for sure!

Not everything he says or any other football journalist says has to be ground breaking 'ITK' news.

Nice one, found it now. 

Seems like a perfectly reasonable update. Why people get their panties in a twist about this I do not know.

Because its a bit cheeky putting it behind a pay wall when there is nothing new.

It's fantastic content. There's load of 'new' stuff in there. 

The Athletic aren't aiming for your click bait audience. It's £30 for a years subscription right now, which seems perfectly reasonable in the current market. Their labour isn't free.

Are you Gregg Evans or related to him.  Genuine question?

Why? Because I like The Athletic as a publication and have expressed that? Because some people here don't like Gregg Evans and I have offered up a fairly balanced response to them using facts? 

Ok.

I'm using the free trial at the moment, content seems very good, tempted by the first year at £30, not too sure about after that when it goes up to £50 p/a though, got a while to try before I buy though!

I just don't get why you would pay money for that. You will find their content on newsnow or a football forum 5 minutes after it's posted anyway. If you are going to pay for good journalism at least use it on something with a bit of substance 😁

Ok. 

Sounds like post-purchase rationalisation to me.
