I get it from RS's point of view, too many youngsters stagnate in the prem. It's not like we have the gaps in the squad we had two years ago.

At his age it would make sense to stay at Fulham, play more or less every week and develop.

It's a big gamble for him and us - If he came in and played as a genuine backup LWB/LB he might not cut it for us. If he comes in and only gets cup games and waits for injuries he could go backwards.


For those who know both who is more ready for the prem in a fullback/wingback position.... Him or KWP?

If am honest its no big loss in one respect. As soon as he said he didn't want us over Juve. Pointless trying to turn his head again. We need players that want to play for us. But he is a big talent

Not really surprising on Keita. Poch doesn't strike me as the kind of guy who will chase after you again after you've led him on once. Burn him and you're off the board.

Not surprised about KBD but the latest itk had led me to think that was one of the deals back on. Of course something could have changed or I could have been wrong the entire time. Both are equally, if one not more, plausible.

Not a surprise.

Although I think someone could be impersonating Ben, as the spelling is correct.
He's probably actually trying to say Martial.

Anyway...as you say not a surprise. Personally I think, and the ITK is starting to suggest, we've left it too late on getting an attacking player and we'll now rely on people who want to get rid a la Sissoko...but we shall see.

If the league runners-up have "left it too late" to get an attacker this summer then that would be ridiculous. Not criticising you ofc.

We've been here before.....guys its 8 days to go, surely one or two signings only.
Spot on, Foyth and gazza announcements being left for deadline day, maybe Barks. I like the positive vibe around the itks but we've been here before. Hope I'm wrong of course. Need pace from out wide. And starters not kids.

If we don't get pace out wide that isn't an upgrade on GNK/Sissoko then we've missed out significantly on giving us a shot at the title. I presume though that people involved at the club that know much more than me are also aware of this

And there was me happily thinking it was a misspelling of "flashlight".

What a sheltered life I've led.

Tbf anyone with half a brain can see we don't just need 2 cb's and a 3rd choice keeper. I'm not trying to be a miserable git and I appreciate the positive spin from gards and hercs but Poch does not trust Jansen. We were pinging balls in the box Sunday but he left him on the bench until it was pointless bringing him on. I could go on but I'm trying to stick with the spin of itk rather than getting banned. I wait for JJ to come along with what is really happening.
I'm really, really hoping this year will be different and I'm loving the positive ITK today.

However, I have to agree. Bringing in another central defender when we clearly need a forward is classic Spurs.
