It’s always nice to see a red-top have to admit to yet another bogus story.

Manchester United youngster Tom Cleverley is the latest celeb to get caught up in a totally inaccurate exclusive, after The Sun claimed that the footballer “begged” some girl for sex in a nightclub.

Alas, for The Sun, it transpires that the horny chap in question wasn’t the famous footballer at all, but rather just a bloke who was pretending to be the United star as he apparently looks like him.

Not so Clever-ley now, eh!

    They should apologise for something else too.

  2. Montesquieu says:

    Other than their existence you mean? All the racist shite they’ve written since the Falkland Wars, or all the lies they have printed throughout their history?

    I feckin’ hate the Sun, I feckin hate when people use it as a ‘source’ when reporting some transfer rumour or news. I feckin hate it, because it has come to be synonymous with all the shite that journalists will print, because pricks like Murdoch will pay them to make things up. I feckin’ hate the sun and I’m not even a Liverpool supporter.

    @Montesquieu You took the words right out of my mouth man, although this blog-article is pointing out a flaw, I have caught the WAATP editors quoting/crediting The Sun in various articles and have communicated to Chris Wright that it discredits anything he writes to say “source: the Sun” in parentheses after it. I love this site but it hurts me whenever they use Britain’s National Tabloid as an official source.

    I bet this apology is hidden miles away at the back of their website
