Good morning everyone

The has been no ITK on Martial (except to deny the story) so it's not for this thread.

If we get Sanchez, which seems possible, I'm assuming we're still looking for an RB. With Barkley and a wide forward also on the cards, that's four incomings without factoring in the keeper. So hopefully last week's melancholic Monday will give way to a busy week ahead.

I know it's early on a sunday morning, but posting about a players role in the team, what you think of their skillset or suitabilty for a certain role within the team is stuff which is for the players threads NOT here.

Why this still needs explaining is a mystery which makes the Marie Celeste, Bermuda Triangle, the guy who got abducted by aliens and got anally probed, the identity of Jack the Ripper and what happened to Lord Lucan all pale into insignificance.

Well, maybe not the bum probe........

The ripper was a Spurs can, one of the first unfortunates to be driven to a life ofcrime, and dare I say it sodomy.
Umm wtf?



On the ITK, yesterdays goat info lines up really well with an article in the GUardian online this morning.. BSoDL won;t be happy but the inference is to expect signings as we head into deadline day, irrespective of when Poch wants them in..

The ITK is constantly changing, perhaps as is the market, but what I find puzzling is the info yesterday...
At least one but probably two incoming the next few days and not counting GK.
You'd assume that's Sanchez and Barkley based on other recent ITK and the media reports, however that doesn't tie in with Poch's comments last weekend about KWP not quite being ready to be backup RB yet, he intimated we are still looking.

Unless I'm misreading it, and that ITK is strictly about the coming days, and there may be more to come afterwards.

It does it just means that one of the close transfers isn't a right back YET

I think people read far too much into his comments personally, he may very well think KWPs ready but didn't want to give anything away to Benitez a week before we play them. Why give Benitez a week to pore over any weaknesses in his game when he doesn't have to.

Poch changed his tune on Friday. Says KWP will play if we go for a back 4 and Sissoko will play RWB if we play a 3. Maybe just a confidence booster or he trained well. Also seems Tripps may only be out 3-4 weeks.

Just because an RB isn't imminent doesn't mean we won't try and get one before 1st Sept.

As far as I know there's no Goat info from last night.
@marcolombardSA and @tsollakis I couldn't give a flying fuck about ratings themselves but getting two 'dohs' makes me wonder what i've got wrong here....I wasn't around and if Rob took the reins......Have I fucked up? Did the Goat say anything last night that should go in the Read Only?

No itk on martial ? Then what exactly do you call basil boli's brother in a hotel corridor saying we might sign somone and they might be French ???
It's unverified info so it won't be treated as ITK. And he didn't mention a players name. And we don't know if the agent was Boli's brother, that was just my guess after reading he was an agent. We all love that kind of info and I'm sure it's passed on in good faith, but if you don't know the source......

There was nothing from The Goat yesterday and all Rob said was to take the Martial stuff to the player thread. I think they mean the Grey Fox info, rather than The Goat.

It was completely accidental. If you look at my profile I very rarely give negative ratings. Sorry
