It’s Deadline Day, which means Jim White will be brushing up on his hyperbole in order to get us all excited about helicopters that may or may not contain Chris Brunt.
It also means that nothing in the media can be taken at face value as a “Sky source” has just spotted “Wilfried Zaha” at Pease Pottage services.
