"Alan Oliver, who's written this article and they do get more right than they get wrong" :colo:

 

David Craig, 13:05PM 2008 :doh: :lol:

 

It is a fact that David Craig gets most of his leads and info from Oliver. So he's going to say that.

 

Look at the Ince story on The Comical website. Oliver looks at wikipedia, writes some guff, coupla of hours later SSN break it as exclusive.

I saw that but refused to believe my own eyesight as surely no self respecting jounalist would refer to wikipedia as a source in print

 

Hang on a minute, I said self respecting

:celb: he certainly does...

Alan Oliver is the chief sports writer for the Evening Chronicle, based in Newcastle Upon Tyne. He has written reports on Newcastle United since the 1980s.

 

He wrote an unofficial book about Kevin Keegan's time as manager of the club entitled Geordie Messiah [1].

 

Reports from sources within the North East have revealed that rumours of Mr Oliver being a highly respected member member of Her Majestys Press are wid eof the mark

Do you think if we edited various people on wikipedia to tell of their friendships with Dennis Wise, it'd appear on the back page tomorow?

 

;D

 

It depends on how quick wiki are.

 

I remember when Shepherd's rein was coming to an end and Oliver was making a prick of himself writing even more ridiculous stories than he does now (some in reaction to criticism on the NUFC sites), his wiki page was longer and was changed quite a few times. 

 

He found out and went ape s***.

 

:celb:

 

 

 

David Craig was able to 'break' the Keegan is sacked story on SSN because Oliver told him.

I know, it's just unbelievable.  Wikipedia isn't even considered worthy of starting a rumour on here, to see it quoted on the back page of an actual newspaper is a farce.

It's changed from my first visit.... now there's an even more hilarious element to it in the references section....

"This article about a non-fiction writer"  mackems.gif

 

Lee Ryder won't be happy with what pops up on wiki:

 

"was an American porn star who performed in gay pornography films from 1981 to 1986.

 

With his bad-boy good looks and slim body, Lee Ryder became one of the first gay porn superstar during a period when the pornography industry was making its transition from film to video in the early 1980s."
