Here's your thread for today.

Today we'll see if the casualties you suffered yesterday sees a reduction in the spammy off topicness.

If not, we're happy to continue the cull. Very darwinian.

JJ has said in their respective threads the following:

Barkley: Still likely

Aurier: ongoing

Sessegnon: looking good.

Martial: very doubtful.

I'm going to say it again.

If someone makes an off topic post it's not an open invitation to add to it. It's not a post you HAVE to respond to. You need to engage your noggins because if you lose your access, don't blame me, blame the perp who originally spammed the thread and yourself for not thinking.

Leave the author of the off topicness to his fate, you wouldn't rush to the wall if they were in front of a firing squad, would you?

That's it. I won't bore you with warnings etc etc for the rest of the day.

Promise.

All sounding very good, I'm guessing RS is the wide forward we're after in place of martial? Massive difference in where they currently are at in terms of level, but poch will love the versatility of being able to bring RS at either LB or wide forward.

JJ confirming what Graham Roberts said last night, does this mean Roberts is now officially ITK? ;)

All sounding good. Although I can't help being left feeling that if we bring in Dave, Serge, Sess and Ross we've bought good players but haven't really addressed the actual weaknesses that needed addressing. ie we still have no one with pace who can go past people, and we're still one Kane injury away from being completely screwed.

Thanks again to JJ, I wonder if the #gamechanger is something he is aware of! Exciting times though, I love th fact that we are, yet again, targeting young players with great potential like Sanchez, Foyth and Sessegnon.

Is that the first solid ITK comment we have had on Aurier? Lots of positive stuff happening, let's hope we can get them completed.

The Ryan Sessegnon transfer fascinates me. Primarily because he clearly seems very gifted and the prospect of what Pochettino could mound him into is exciting. However, I'm equally intrigued at where he ends up as there seems to be synergies with Bale insofar as left wing back seems obvious but he clearly has an eye for goal based on some of his performances for Fulham last season.

Game changer is obviously Martial and obviously never going to happen.

You should be careful where you sling your 'obviouslys' because you could end up looking like a complete mug :D

Not that you'd stand out in here :playful:
Was thinking just that. JJ is very cautious to not look like a mug on those types. After balde changed so quick I expect he will wait till the last moment if it can happen.

JJ comments

If we can get Sessegnon, Aurier, Barkley (and Foyth) in addition to Sanchez this would have to be the most impressive window we've had. Quite brilliant really, whilst hopefully only losing Walker. The squad will look brilliant for 3-4-2-1 and still very strong in the 4-2-3-1.

Fingers crossed we can get it done, and keep an eye out for any opportunistic developments on the attacker front (likely sacrificing Janssen if so).

IF we do bring the 3 mentioned in, I think Levy and co will have earned our trust when calling for patience in future. I'd certainly retract some of my 'stick or twist' rants on ambition from the quiet period...
