    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread DEADLINE DAY!

    Not usually one for negativity or dramatic statements but if it falls the way Breezer has said then it really is utterly outrageous. At the very least if we couldn’t find quality to improve the match day squad, how the hell have we not identified and purchased some potential for the future ...

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread DEADLINE DAY!

    The Journalist I'm going to give a mini round-up of what I know as there is a lot of rubbish being posted by the media and on social media. In June spurs contacted villa. A fee around 25 million was informally discussed and suggested by Villa but NO fee or anything was agreed on. Tottenham were...

    Yes, however he responded to someone that said that, highlighted the very line and said that that wasn’t the reason. That is the root of what we are saying. Anyways, last post on the matter.

    This could effectively fall under we found it difficult to prise him away from Palace ( because unlike someone else, we weren’t willing to pay the necessary price )

    It is a fair assertion. We aren’t in the running NOT because we found it difficult to prise him away, suggesting our sights are set elsewhere

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread 7th August

    Whilst we got some snippets yesterday it was yet another day without major movement. Really would expect a lot more concrete media and ITK to start coming through at this stage if we are going to get 2-3 signings in and the necessary outs

    the UFC thread

    This this and this. TJ is just about the best current fighter in all of MMA. Very technical, game as hell, brilliant all round skill set and goes for the finish every time. Wonderboy level striking but loves to bang. Makes adjustments every fight, great training and fight IQ. Gardbrandt had no...

    His boss at work is very good friends with Harry if I recall correctly

    Player Mateo Kovacic

    Not entirely convinced. Trading one stacked to the gunnels club in terms of personnel, but where you win trophies, for another one doesn’t seem entirely logical for him at this point.

    Player Mateo Kovacic

    Was just thinking that. He’s trying to force their hand. Would be just the thing if it’s too late for the likes of us then he ends up going to somewhere else in Europe for a reasonable fee after our window closes, because the relationship with him and Madrid have turned so sour

    Stanislav Lobotka

    Can’t comment on the rest of his game but definitely the way he can receive the ball with either foot, show close control and have a very tight change of direction is very similar to the way that Modric used to work his way out of tight spots. He has a decent burst of acceleration and seems wiry...

    Yep like him. Not surprised this link has come up again, last thread shouldn’t have been deleted.

    There are a hell of a lot of permutations to still occur between now and the end of the window, I highly doubt the Martial ‘saga’ will end on this particular nugget of info.

    Ante Rebic

    News of his sale is being given a chilli reception by those on there that think he’s mustard. Apparently Frankfurt need the bread though
