The only thing making me think it's not a marquee signing is the fact the ITK said "most" of us would be happy about it. I think if they were referring to a marquee signing, the word "most" wouldn't be used as surely it would lift everyone's spirits and there wouldn't really be anyone displeased about it. Hopefully I'm wrong though as i feel a big signing would really do our confidence some good going into this tricky season at Wembley
JJ doesn't need to write anymore
A couple of emojis and we write 12 pages discussing what he meant
Is that really the only thing making you think it's not a marquee signing?
I think people are setting themselves up for disappointment if they think we'll be making any marquee signings.
i wouldn't read too much into him saying 'most'. Grey Fox has been on here for years. He knows that its very unlikely that everyone would be happy even if we were to get a marquee signing.
Exactly. In today's market there's even less chance. We're never spending the £50m minimum required, and we're never spending the 150k a week.
It'll be either one of the right backs we've been linked with or a young relatively well known prospect. Don't think we're close or given up on Barkley, and that's where most of our transfer funds are aimed at.
A man can dream, okay!?
It's a bit like Jesus, isn't it?
And lo, Levy spoke unto the JJ and commandeth he tell the people the transfer truth. And the JJ obeyed and inscribed the truth upon the tablet of emojis. And the people were happy but knew not why
Since I read the Scottish accent post, I have been trying not to do the same but it's impossible now. Happy we're (probably) getting someone that most on here should be happy with
I think he could photocopy his arse and post it on the internet and people would be discussing it .
"I wonder if he plays for Krakow FC...?"
Some of you are fucking tragic
JJ Must sit back and laugh at this! The second meltdown and still no signings, but excitement growing again.
Whose tragic and can I have her number?
Presumably, ohwhenthespurs' tragic. You'll have to ask him/her for the number.
JJ gave this a winner
Is simeone someone to consider in this hush hush context or no?
I propose that we stop using words in this thread and just use emojis. My guess at the incoming player based on the likely reaction of SC is
You never know, but we've been talking non stop for the last 24 hours on him lol
