    Wilmar Barrios

    Exactly. And rated Paulinho more specifically. Who now, let's all remember, played in El Clasico for Barcelona this past season. Not exactly a downgrade. Paulinho wasn't good for us, but I maintain that he was, and is, a bit of an anomaly as a player that came to us at the wrong time (I wrote...

    I recommend GTFO (for your own safety)

    Before Herc's latest piece of ITK, I would be in agreement with you, but I think part of his point is to not consider signings within the previous formations we're used to. Between Winks/Dier/Wanyama we aren't without a CM, especially if we're not playing 2-3 classic CMs in a new formation. Not...

    Player Wilfried Zaha

    Based on historical dealings I think it's possible that 1) Zaha is option B to Martial 2) Zaha is smokescreen to apply pressure on Utd 3) Option 1+2 are both true BUT regardless of whatever speculation may be true or not true, I am surprised, again based on historical dealings, that this is...

    I believe the new one is 'Lectiones sunt didicit'

    Player Mateo Kovacic

    Not sure why you guys are getting so wound up over the quality difference between these two. They’re both accepted as top level young players with high ceilings and generally similar statistically, especially when you account for the difference in league quality — surely we’d be lucky to have...

    Love this place but man the fat needs to be trimmed. I think we’ve more than satisfied the requirement for this window of the following cliches: 1. “Sounds like our budget will be _____. This means we are getting ______, _______, and ________. That’s disappointing/encouraging.” 2. “Thanks ITK...

    Player Christian Pulisic

    I’ve probably watched every international match he’s played and whether he has a higher ceiling than Martial or Malcom I don’t know—but I can tell you he’s more than capable of carrying a team on his back when he needs to and making something out of nothing. He has ridiculous vision for an 18...

    While it’s not impossible, it’s highly improbable De Ligt will be worth less in two months than he is now. And as an agent, if you sold now you’re not using MONTHS of auction time. Edit: example—Dortmund aren’t going to take a lower price on Pulisic because some new hot winger performed well...

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread 28th May

    After James Rodriguez, you’d have to be completely mindless as an agent to deal before a WC now. Honestly it’s not that hard to do the math: July 15 = end of WC August 9 = end of transfer window Time in between = WHEN EVERYTHING HAPPENS It’s the same cycle every year except this year we get a...
