thought i posted on this thread already but according to a former physio at the club (who i used at his own clinic) he has the same knee issue as Ledley.
Not shitting on your info, but it would seem fudging strange for a physio to blabber on about a former patient. Even if he wasn't actually treating him, it would be info that he was privy to because of his line of work, no?

it turns out physios talk about their patients, especially the high profile ones. Hes a reputable sports physio (rugby and football) who now runs his own clinic and volunteered the info when i mentioned my footballing affinity so i just passed it along. Is it any more/less reliable than the 'ITK' that appears on this site every day? I dont know....

Agree with you there. Why is it any less likely than coaches or directors leaking transfer news to ITKs which then gets posted on here and treated as gospel? Surely that's just as unprofessional. In fact even more so if the people leaking information are paid employees of the club.

I'm, not doubting you, it's just that giving out information like that would mean a loss of licence over here if the authorities were made aware of it. Just seemed a pretty baffling thing to do.

I'm only saying that the physio seems weird. I'm sorry if I can't word it in a way that you are able to understand. English isn't my first language.

So what he means is... He's not doubting you (the poster) that the information was passed on in good faith and is as far as you know, true... But for a physio to do that that, it would be very odd.

Nope. Time will tell but I won't be pinning my hopes on it. Levy needs to spend some serious money on players or we will never win a proper trophy.

Didn't Levy spend serious money on the likes of Sissoko, Soldado, N'jie, N'Koudou, Aurier, Janssen, Bentley etc etc etc ?

My point? Well, spending millions doesn't necessarily equate to solving the issues so many of us talk about.

I'd say 3/4 of our highest priced buys of the last 3 windows look like our best... Lucas, Sanchez & Aurier may have finally turned the corner.

Lucas & Sanchez, yes/possibly, but that's still only 2 out of how many multi-million pound purchases?

I get your point, @dtxspurs , just as I believe you get/got mine.

People constantly call for us (Levy) to spunk countless millions on shiny new toys but, even if that happens, surely our porn history in that department shows it's not necessarily going to equate to success?

Sanchez turning a corner u wot?
Remember prior to Alderweireld's injury last season, then the run of games Sanchez had alongside Vertonghen, many on here were proclaiming Sanchez as a liability, or reckless etc, despite the lad never getting anything near consistent game time.

I think that's perhaps where the "turned a corner" thing comes from?

Brilliant :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:.. I'm not even going to edit that. If you're on your phone, do you 'type' your posts, or do you use the 'swipe' technique?

I 'swipe' and thought I'd swiped 'own'. Turns out I hadn't :X3:
I swipe type on my phone all the time and can't for the life of me even get it to type porn (had to type manually as coincidentally it put own...)

What have you been doing to get that as a first choice option...:whistle:

Have you selected 'block offensive words' in your keyboard settings? If you have, un-select it & you'll get some glorious typos.

My initial swipe error had nothing at all to do with my work WhatsApp group chat & multiple references to interracial midget porn, honest.
