    Lads, it's ITK.

    COYS.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Latest ITK (compiled by @JohnnyVivas)

    Foyth - Done, waiting to announce. "Quotes" from player seem to corroborate this.

    Aurier - Positive outcome on WP expected/completed. Visa being final hurdle to signing, expect announcement in next 48 hours.

    Sancho - We want, he wants, City playing hardball. Doubts as to whether or not he'd be a first teamer vs u23 player. Doubts as to whether or we can get this done before 23h00 tomorrow.

    Barkley - Always expected to go to the wire. Is going to the wire. Player injury (various reports on severity thereof) impacting price/desire to sign immediately. We want, he seems to want, ITK confident an agreement will be reached.

    Sessegnon - Player "signed new contract to help his club". We thought it was dead, may be (but not necessarily) "the previously dead deal coming back to life". We seem to want, seems player open to move, ITK not concrete either way, more likely for another window.

    Mystery player - we haven't mentioned his name yet apparently, possibly the "(pacey/wide)-forward" we are all dying for, but I don't advocate a guessing game at all for the sake of the mods, and everyone else reading. Various "expect-something-big" type crumbs falling from different ITKs so a slim chance of some kind of "gamechanger" signing.

    Thanks Stoof - here's to lots of stamps today please. Foyth nice and early followed by Aurier later in day so that we can then concentrate on the other more delicate one's.

    We'll it's certainly been a rollercoaster this window.

    I think people should be a little sympathetic to those that are worrying - we have been here before.

    Having said that, it's not over until the bald man locks up his wheelbarrow and the fact JJ has spoken spoken so close to the end and in a positive light - that gives me some confidence this time it will be different.

    Hoping for some dotted i's and crossed t's today, get the obvious out the way.

    Looking forward to tomorrow's 100+ pages of highs and lows, from Kerslake to King, from Rivaldo to Paulinho.

    We've been here before, let's not wet the bed if our dreams turn to nightmares.

    Am I right in thinking that a Home Office decision is due today on Aurier's visa?

    Latest ITK from Hercules was that we received a decision yesterday, but didn't announce anything. His opinion was that we got the visa, and were completing contracts. I think he expected announcement today.

    Can someone help with a little summary of what to hope for?

    Is the potential:
    • Foyth
    • Aurier
    • Sancho
    • Barkley
    • Sessegnon
    • Mystery player
    ?

    Worrying thing for me if that is the possible list of targets is that there are no attacking players that can come and help the team right now. If the mystery player is also a defender I will totally lose it

    Or an alternative for Barkley if we think that he really is crocked.

    The ITK has all been pretty adamant that the mystery player is a forward player.

    Doesn't mean the signing is happening of course and we might yet have a TW where we strengthened our back line, but stay frugal up front. Depending on the reality of the RB injury or no injury situation.

    I wonder if the revisiting old targets ITK info is actually a move for Zaha...

    Would make sense. Prem proven pacey young forward. Good end product. Palace a shambles.

    Massive thanks to Hercules for bursting on to the scene like a champ, but also the old legends Gards, Grey Fox, Ali Z and JJ etc. Excellent stream for us this window. For their sake, and the admins, lets keep the chat in here kosher for 48 hours, use the other forums where appropriate, dig around for a spare tenner to throw in the pot at 23h00 tomorrow, and hope for the best.

    *Edit formatting at the behest of the Gaffer. I am on a beach off the east coast of Africa and a few rum and cokes in on an iPhone, so WiFi/Screen/Brain space at a premium but hope this is better. Love all you crazy bastards.

    Can you format that list a bit nicer and we'll get @Stoof to add it to the first post, thanks!

    True Stoof, but checking the RO there's only been four entries in the past week. Pretty thin gruel, as Jacob would say, even allowing for the thread posts from DJ - sorry ITK - Herc (little hip hop reference there for the kids) and others in the past few days.

    Which leaves us with 4 to 6 'hot tips' to sign in the next two days which I think is optimistic. Might be an idea to have a 'Meltdown Thread' running alongside this one so people can panic elsewhere.
