Okey D'oh!
VIDEO: Bill O'Herlihy falls for fake statistic, quotes it live on air
Poor Billo believed that David Moyes had scouted 39,432 players before signing Fellaini and Mata.

THOSE OF YOU watching RTÉ’s Champions League coverage last night may have been a bit miffed when veteran presenter Bill O’Herlihy reeled off a peculiar statistic about Manchester United manager David Moyes.

On Tuesday, The Guardian‘s Daniel Harris had jokingly written in daily transfer gossip column ‘The Rumour Mill‘ that:


However, Billo (or his researcher) obviously took it to be true and put the quote to Eamonn Dunphy and Kenny Cunnigham.

This morning, Harris tweeted: “Wrote that Moyes spent 10 months watching 39,432 players a total of 5,097,301 times. Someone on telly believed me.”

Oh dear.
