Thread renewed

Right now real life means I haven't the time to keep an eye on things that I usually have i'm like that Chameleon that Boy George used to bang on about, I come and go, I come and go........

The upshot of that is that when I do arrive I'll have zero patience with the fuckwitted. This means that.....I won't have much time for people making posts banging on about the merits of Eriksen/Mason etc etc. These inveriably take the thread miles off topic because people just won't let it fucking go, fill the thread and take it completely away from purpose.

You've other venues to bang on about our players abilities. These have been and still are threads that are open and thriving in Spurs Chat. Use them or you'll lose your access. Fair and final warning and in fact i'll go further............

Start a thread moaning about losing your access and i'll ban you from the entire site. PM me moaning about it and i'll ban you from the entire site. Enough now, we're getting Darwinian. You want to fuck around? Lets have it.

Likewise, if you start off boillocks about how "Bolasie/Carrick would be a good signing" or somesuch. This is the ITK discussion thread. Not the advertise your idiocy thread and enough is enough now, i'm not going to keep moaning about this every window because its the same people time after time.

Read the rules, don't read the rules, meh, your decision. But break them and you're out. I'm done worrying about it.

*World record early date for an A&C transfer window hissy. Well played.

Apologies to A+C for the Bolasie stuff last night, I had had a few, back to my rational self again, that stuff won't happen again
A few or a 30 rack? Big difference:p;)

Is it not worth reopening the Summer Transfer Wish List thread, as there is actually nowhere for us to just generally shoot the breeze about who's out there and who'd we'd like without them actually being linked anymore. Even the thread in here about "who could improve us who's out there" was locked. Surely we should be able to just hypothesise and shit somewhere ? It's a bit constraining only being able to discuss player officially linked and there's virtually fuck all else to talk about in Spurs chat now.

No, its not. We've done it before, it didn't work then and it wont work now. I won't go into the reasons because i've done so many times and at the end of the day it isn't up for debate.

Generally shooting the breeze is something we've never frowned upon in any of the existing player threads, in fact it goes on in them all the time. A specific thread for it isn't needed, you have plenty already. Just not this one.

And to counterbalance my rant

I've always* been pretty relaxed about what goes on in here when ITK is quiet. The limits are pretty well known and i'll only really spit my dummy out when the merits of players we already have start getting discussed. Or wishlisting. There's no need for it in here. Ever. But when there's ITK around, it baffles me why we get the above when there's actually the stuff this thread was created for to bang on about.

There aren't actually that many rules in here, its just that they get enforced a lot more than any other thread on SC and I do know that sometimes we'll briefly go off topic about all sorts of crazy shit which makes this thread a right laugh at times but i'm sorry, how good Mason is being persistently posted in here just ain't funny.

And as we keep on saying, as hard as we try, we do know that we'll never ever have a system in place that keeps everyone happy.

*Well maybe not always but have mellowed into it over the years :p
