Yes there is. The player threads. Say for example we've been linked to Mahrez and there's a thread for him, you could easily post in there that you'd prefer it if we signed someone else who hasn't been linked and the discussion will evolve from there. So not only is the idea that there's nowhere for wishlisting incorrect, there are actually a lot of threads where you can do just that :D
Where are the player threads located mate, would it happen to be in the section where you've banned a load of people? :sour:

I think we need a place to discuss stuff like that though. We went over it after the summer window as well, if im not mistaken. We’re missing a thread where we can discuss this type of stuff. Player threads are strictly for that player whose been linked in genuine media outlets. ITK threads is strictly for ITK. We dont have a general spurs transfer discussion thread and i think that would go a long way in cleaning up the Transfer section and save Rob and A&C alot of headaches with the ITK thread.
I've already explained that you aren't missing out at all. But it seems to be falling on deaf ears so for that reason, I'm out.

PS: The headaches part has been resolved, the ITK forums ran VERY smoothly this time around.

I think it was probably the most requested thing after the summer window closed when Rob asked for ideas.

I found it a little odd that it wasn’t part of the transfer section this time out. Don’t think it’d be that hard to just lift this thread and drop it in a different sub forum for a month.
Because it doesn't work. We've tried it.

It doesn't work, people get confused as to what goes where, Its then gets talked about in both threads, ITK gets posted in one thread and not the other and in the other thread and not the correct thread and it all becomes a huge mess and its more work too.

This has also been said multiple times. It does NOT work.

Yeah I'm just saying, people can't moan about a thread discussing a wishlist if the half the forum isn't accessible for naughty people like me ;)
Ah. I seeeeeee now what your gripe is.

Sorry to be so abrupt, but I couldn't be more indifferent to the plight of the banned :D

Because there is an entire section of the forum opened up specifically to discuss possible in's and out's. No point in having the same stuff discussed in multiple places when the transfer section is hard enough to police.

In fact I don't see why anyone would need this thread to be left open unless it's because they have lost access to the transfer window section, and if that's the case remember it's their own fault they have nowhere to discuss what's going on.
Hi Trix. The daily Itk thread is heavily policed and a thread is needed like this one where general player wishes are discussed... I tried getting A&C to have it there in that part of the forum. It would have solved the countless bans or threats of bans on that thread or the individual player threads.

One thread like this where we discuss the merits of player X even if we had itk or not on him.

Anyhow this one is open again but sadly come 1 June it disappears :(

And get accused of derailing the thread. This seems a good place for everyone to post their squad building ideas in one place. Not for one moment saying it should be open during the transfer window.
Winnered and then saw your last sentence:cautious:.

Definitely let one of Vorm and Gaza go and bring in a a younger keeper that could fit under nation trained.

I’d sell Rose, Sissoko and probably, even though I’m a fan, Lamela.

Bring in Malcom, Sessegnon, Maddison, and a central mid to take the reigns from Dembele and I’d be a happy bunny.

No it isn't. I've just said (again) that there are threads where you can do this.

Give me a number please. Any number, as long as its the number of the times I have to say it and it sinks in so I know how far I have to go :D

Essentially I think a backup to Eriksen is most needed for squad purposes. A young player ready to play but can also be happy as a squad player. James Maddison seems favourite for this role.

I like our wing backs to have pace so would like KWP promoted to being one of our first two choice ring wing backs. This means I'd sell Trippier.

Unsure whether Sessegnon's future will be as an attacking mid or left wing back. So for now would keep Davies but bring in Sess to develop his defensive game but play a lot of his games in the attacking mid position.

I'd keep our centre backs the same as i believe we have a great mix of experienced and young centre backs.

Central midfield is the position I feel we need a first team player the most. No idea if realistic but what I have read about Kovacic suggests he could be what we are looking for.

In goal we should just release Vorm and either promote an academy keeper or buy a young English keeper.

Striker is the toughest position. Kane is obviously first choice. We have tried 2 out and out strikers and neither have worked out. City couldn't get performaces from Bony and Chelsea from Batshuayi. So I think an inside forward type is best. Do we just stick with Son for that role? Possibly Richarlison?

So the end squad would be:

GK: Lloris, Gazza, Academy player
RWB: Aurier, KWP
LWB: Rose,Davies
CB: Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Foyth, Sanchez
DM: Dier, Wanyama
CM: Winks, Kovacic, Dembele, Onomah
AM: Maddison, Alli, Eriksen, Sessegnon,Lamela, Moura
Strikers: Kane,Son

Buy: Kovacic, Maddison, Sessegnon
Sell: Trippier, Sissoko, N'Koudou, Llorente, Janssen, Vorm

I think people are talking more about the hypothetical wishlists and the chance to discuss trasnfers overall in general.

So in the Mahrez thread we can discuss Mahrez on the condition there is a credible source. But if we want to discuss ins and outs as a whole and not based purely on who we are linked to there is no thread in January to do so.
