I know not every lower league signing is going to be another Dele Alli, but this itk about a couple of young signings is quite exciting. It shows we have a definitive plan to build for the long term, not just a quick fix. Heading into our new stadium with a squad shaped and moulded over time, into a genuine team that fully understands what is required by the manager.
Lookman (Charlton LWF) was strongly linked, but then apparently Chelsea were front runners. That all went quiet though, so maybe still there to be signed up.
Rico Henry (Walsall LB) was also linked, but again it appears to have all gone quiet.
James Maddison (Coventry CM/AM) and Jermaine Alexander (Peterborough CM) have been linked this last week or so.
ITK has generally been vague, just that we're looking at a couple of young players, no suggestions who though.

Based on recent experience of paying huge money for overrated foreign players and our most recent success with young hunger players...I'm delighted with the ITK re looking at more young players.

We are the best side in the top flight currently when it comes to progressing youngsters through to the1st team. We are a very attractive proposition and should attract the best young talent in the country.

I don't think it's England focused. Wimmer and Njie are exciting lower profile signings from the continent, as was Dier.

I just think we're paying more heed to physical attributes - Wimmer being strong and with a bit of pace (cf Chiriches and Fazio), Njie being quick and aggressive (cf Lamela and Chadli, who while good players, took a while to settle)

a little off topic I know but
I get that the adds thing is going off what we search but I keep getting adds for Muslim singles and today Ukrainian singles and women who never say no all of witch I find amusing as 1 I am not and 2 I am not and 3 I have never been on a dating site but yesterday I was getting adds for gay cruises.

Now as amusing as that sounds and I'm laughing as I type this I am a tad confused as I can't get on even a rowing boat on a still lake with out puking my guts up so I'm never looking at cruises and although I pride myself on being very live and let live I have never been to my knowledge or memory gay or visited a gay site ?

does this mean I have a bizarre search history witch confuses your add supplier or does it mean I am a closet homosexual who sleep searches international women to cover up my impending gay not sea sickness closetness ??

The ads you see are a combination of targetted ads based on your search history as well as other users on the site.

@Houdini and @bomberH have a lot to answer for :p

Bespoke advertising, old chap. My ads feature cures for erectile dysfunction and pre-varnished sheds. There's a joke in there about needing to erect wood but I can't be bothered to make it.

We get ads from other users' search history? I did not know this.

In that case I apologise to everyone for my littl'un's behaviour. He was supposed to type 'squinting thespian widgets' for research for homework.

Heh not to that level but if it identifies this site has a lot of users who go to football website, we'll see a lot of football ads (which is why we get the Chelsea/Arsenal ones occasionally)

I only looked at the dating sites... I didn't actually meet anyone..although someone who looks a lot like me might have done!

As for the gay cruises, ha! who would want to spend £975.00 on one of those just to cruise around Florida wearing speedos while being up & down all day and bending over the rail spitting out the last thing you swallowed.. Not me, I'm into dismantling grenades and mountaineering, real macho shit & stuff.
