Ornstein is still dead solid reliable because he's not going to be making up crap. That said, he also may no longer have quite the authoritative inside scoop that he previously had. I've long thought his source was Gazidis. Since Ivan left, Ornstein has seemed to hedge a bit in his public comments about Arsenal, maybe being a little less sure or less confident in his sources. So Ornstein may no longer be the "club mouthpiece" that he was. But you can still be sure that he's not bullshitting.
