Here at 7500 to Holte we're all about keeping you entertained, so today I'd like to introduce a new game: TRACE THE RUMOUR!
We're trying to figure out how far removed from a source we can get until we finally hear a rumour. The more steps there are, the more points you get, and the most points wins! So, step right up over here and draw a card from our deck of rumours. Let's see what you've got there.
Just text the guilty ITK & he is adamant it's done. His source (?) is a friend of a current first teamer who've been texted #AVFC #WhoKnows?— GARETH (@PICKLES_71) October 29, 2015
Oh, that's a good one! Presumably about Rémi Garde coming to Aston Villa. Let's see what we can do. This rumour comes to us from Gareth (1). Gareth heard it from an ITK (2). The ITK got it from a friend (3) who knows a player (4) who got a text, presumably, from the front office (5).
Five points! Not bad for a first try! As thanks for playing our game, you've won a free month's subscription to 7500 to Holte. Please send in other rumours that you think can get a better score. And we'll see you next time on: TRACE THE RUMOUR!
(Note: This doesn't mean the rumour is true, but dear heavens please don't rely on fifth-generation rumours for your Aston Villa news.)
