Clickbait

Post by Orange Box »

First thing on a summer morning I open NewsNow website to see which 25 players we should be signing. Today I open a tag which states there are two huge injuries concerning our trip to Soton. :oops: I trembled with expectant fear as I opened the tab to reveal …

Ayling and Firpo.

F*cking clickbait caught me again. One day I’ll learn.

Most of the headlines are garbage - even from the better sites. I regularly read Leeds Live. But their headlines are intentionally misleading. They do this all the time:

"Kalimuendo latest as Leeds offer contract to striker"

The two are not linked. It might be an update about Kalimuendo, but Joe Gelhardt is offered a new contract. I've learned to read - and ignore - them now.

I'll never learn. Opened a topic on a forum entitled 'Clickbait' expecting to find a decent, detailed post about pros and cons on the emotive subject of clickbait. What did i get ? Someone moaning about full backs ffs. Will i ever learn.

Does drive me mad when you see all the players we are supposedly signing. I got remotely excited earlier on when it was reported we were looking at a player who reminds us of the Brazilian Ronaldo. When I clicked the tab who came up?....... Che Adams!
Just read Ollie Watkins may be available, thet would be a good signing me thinks.
