Here's your thread for today.

We let you have your fun yesterday but that can't go on forever, we let you off the leash and allowed you to play with your sticklebricks but enough now. There's not long to go and you wouldn't want to miss out on the vinegar strokes end of the transfer window would you?

Remember! This thread is for today's ITK.

Martial would be a dream signing but the only way I can see it happening is if either Dier or Rose goes in the opposite direction, both in terms of affording him and Utd selling him to us

I understand a lot of you are clamouring after martial, but enlighten me please...

He's not set the epl alight in 2 seasons, he plays lwf which is in direct competition with sonny (who has the 3/4th best returns in terms of goals/assists for us last season)... so why the excitement?

Can he play rwf?

Sidenote: is this considered discussing itk?

So is he the 'gamechanger' mentioned by Hercules and Gards then?
I'm fine with it, can only see it involving Rose if true. Even if not now, maybe for first refusal next summer.

No it's discussing the player, there's a thread for that.

So, with latest ITK from late last night, we are assuming the #gamechanger is referring to Martial? I just don't see that having a happy ending but who knows.

Forgive me if I'm wrong but didn't Rob suggest the game changer was Breezer's mystery South American?

Martial would be a dream signing. Has the potential to be one of the best players in the world if used correctly. If we can get a deal done we 100% have to go for it. Our squad would be ridiculous if we got him, Barkley and a right back.

Got to temper the excitement however, we know the drill with Spurs and dream signings, not gonna be easy.

To echo others. Really want this to happen....but just can't see how or why Jose would strengthen us.

Jose does have form for doing deals with rivals though. Sold Mata to Man Utd, bought Matic this summer etc...

If it means Rose goes in the opposite direction...I'd be happy with Rose out....Martial and Sessengon in.

In the same way as Sanchez again kind of came out of the blue, I wouldn't be at all surprised to suddenly sign a player that we hadn't yet considered on here.

For those who missed it and don't check the RO:

Who: Hertyid
When: 18th August
Where: COYS On Martial

"This one has legs"

"Word is Woodward is in discussions while Jose is bigging him up in the press. Good cop bad cop. Martial wants regular football and doesn't have good relationship with Mourinho. Let's see"

Jose has no issue getting rid of players who don't conform to his regime, he doesn't care where they go, he'd send them to the gulags if it was an option.

Convincing Woodward to sell is the bigger issue, but he certainly seems to back his manager.
