  • "Echo, why do you do this? Why have a headline "deal sealed", when the story clearly says that the deal hasn't been sealed at all, but that a bid has been accepted. Why invite the obvious criticisms of lazy journalism? Why have such sensationalist headlines, when anyone reading only a couple of sentences further can see that the headline is innacurate? It's not like this is a rare occurance; you are ALWAYS doing it, and it (a) annoys the hell out of your readers, (b) makes you look stupid, (c) makes people doubt your truthfulness, which surely is the kiss of death for any newspaper, and (d) makes no sense when you don't have to capture an audience; the very fact that we are here, on your website, almost ensures we are gong to read the story, whatever he headline.

    It takes only a moment to ensure that the headline matches the story beneath it."

Coutinho deal sealed

LIVERPOOL have had an £8.5m bid accepted for Saints target Philippe Coutinho.

Saints were reportedly prepared to pay £10.2m for the Inter Milan midfielder but their interest cooled when it became clear the player was holding out for a move to Merseyside.

Cash-strapped Inter need to sell the 20-year-old Brazil international in order to sign 24-year-old Brazilian midfielder Paulinho from Corinthians before the transfer window shuts.

The sales of Wesley Sneijder, who has sealed an £8.4m move to Galatasary, and Coutinho would easily fund the €15m move for Paulinho
