    To be fair though, that was at your wife's request.

    Definitely not ITK

    If we tie down the alternative striker position (ideally who can play as AM or striker), current ITK being Batashuayi is done (after debate with A&C - ITK suggests close to being done), then I think Poch will look hard at where to upgrade, but I'd still be surprised if we had 2 more after Batashuayi and maybe a couple of youngsters plus the likes of Carter-Vickers (CB), Ball(DM/CB), Winks (CM), Onomah(AM/CM), Harrison (Striker/no 10), Walker - Peters (FB) and maybe Oduwa (AM) coming through plus of course Pritchard who we have hardly seen.

    Think we are more likely to sell more than we buy, so Fazio (almost certain to go) followed maybe by Chadli (not involved enough for Poch plus Batashuayi able to act as an AM), possibly Carroll (or Mason or Bentaleb but certainly not all 3 and unlikely 2)

    I think the correct terminology for Bats position is some one who can rotate with Harry, not back up for Harry.

    actually yeah that's exactly how I read it.
    Medal in one hand and a spurs contract in the other.

    I expect him to confirm the move as soon as the game ends tbh. Otherwise you have to wonder if the ITK is accurate /credible.

    What do you mean? I fully expect him to take his Marseille top off to reveal a Spurs kit underneath and do a rendition of Chas and Dave's Gertcha in his post match interview.

    What like rushing to the nearest camera, shouting "i'm off to Spurs" down the lens giving the cam the finger and running off down the tunnel? Anything less and the ITK gets cabbaged?

    A bit like when Eto'o nutmegged Sol Campbell and dedicated it to Spurs fans - before his imminent signing?

    I, for one, will be going full Rick Grimes on the entire Spurs Community if the fucker hasn't signed by the time I nibble my croissant on Sunday morning.

    Think everyone to judge from other comments in this thread) thinks the ITK means its all done bar signing the contract (after the French Cup final on Saturday)........are you saying there are any material points left to discuss before lawyers finalise contract and he signs ?

    Obviously anything can go wrong - Mat le Tissier is rumoured to have signed and then asked for the contract to be torn up, but other than that what else is in the way of him becoming a Spurs player ? Willian of course being the other notable caveat emptor !?

    I've altered the wording in that post to say that ITK expects - hope it meets with your approval - but I genuinely thought the wording of the ITK was more positive than that....I live and learn. Nothing is final until OS says it is and the player concerned appears in the first match....

    I think its really positive ITK but nowhere did it say "done" (I try my best not to use that word in ITK). As you say, done is when its signed, sealed and announced and as we all ought to know, "done" is a dangerous word to be throwing around in an electronic age of hissyfitting, minge kicking-in and the putting of heads in ovens :D
