Welcome back, N'jie.
This from Ali Z doesn't tally with the info we have received from GF and JJ. Our 1st choice may have been Thomas Lemar, Perreira and Kovacic. One wants to go to a team in Europa (wtf), one is over priced and we've cooled our interest and the latter plays for the greatest club in Europd if not the world!
If we end up with Barkley, this mystery player JJ had been on about and a decent RB I'll be happy. But we need some players that's an absolute must! Coys
@topper, apologies but that post isn't going to make it in here.
Seperating opinion from ITK is beyond this thread and all that will achieve is to take this thread off on a million guessing games. So we'll stick to what he says when he's got his ITK head on.
Is there any player out there that's not overpriced to Levy? If only we had a huge increase in TV money, 80 millions from sales or big new sponsor deals to enable us paying for a player we want...
Looks like a itk war again. Just hope jj and grey fox are the ones that are right. But Ali is normally good. Just hope it was the emotion of the match. But we must be close to something. And I think Barkley is a first choice for poch must be.
A rb is far more pressing in my opinion. Just my tuppence but attacking wise we are doing alright...
Wow just read through this! I didn't realise how much people have a pop about someone passing on info! To the guys who want me to verify my sources, please feel free to ask A&C. Now I remember why I stopped posting on here! #disappointing
Anyone who asks will be told to fuck off and mind their own business. What you or any other ITK tells us behind the scenes goes no further. Ever.
You don't need to justify yourself, if anyone has a pop and we see it, they are out on their ear, we try very hard to look after all sources and not just the ones that post on this site.
Oh and who's been asking you to verify your sources? Was it by PM? If you let me know i'll look into it.
For the benefit of everyone, if someone starts posting info in here it's because they've verified with us. Anyone who posts info without doing that is pretty quickly got rid of.
I think the frustrations on here due to lack of signings is getting to some.......
Let's not force A&C to turn this place into COYS.....he will eventually run out of patience........actually I think he's the most patient person on the planet!
This is a good place and I for one have got great help from members on here. It's not all about the transfer forum, it's actually a very social place
Let's all show appreciation not frustration
Completely Agree - Who would have guessed we are the 12th highest revenue generating club in the world? People are acting like we are piss poor - complete bollocks.
I'm not for overpaying and we've made mistakes previously - but that shouldn't shut our spend down.
Expect us to begin activity soon as per the ITK. We are a few injuries away from a complete disaster in certain positions. Still hopeful on a few decent incomings!
Levy has long specialised in last-minute deals, most of which have not worked out. If he signs a player on Aug 31 he saves two months' salary, since player contracts usually start on July 1. Here are some of the (very) few deals that were done early, in April or May: Bale, Berbatov, Modric. Here are some that were done on or around August 31: Rasiak, F Campbell (loan to replace Berbatov!), Sissoko, Jenas. Even the last-minute signings of good players - van der Vaart, Scott Parker, HM Son (28 Aug) - means they miss pre-season and we have to wait from them to integrate into the squad.
I'm sure that others can think of exceptions, but the usual way of doing business does not do the manager any favours. He's even given last-minute dross or no time to work with the player as the season is already underway.
Shambolic if true. Wonder if he's reacted to some news he's heard about a transfer breaking down possibly?
If levy is looking to get those players I have mentioned in then perhaps it's a delicate balancing act. Not sure how transfers work so I can't really add more to that.
As I said, bringing no players I. Would be a disaster. Getting the players that fit in with our way of playing is key
I don't think the posters who may have said that knew you were 'Gards'. Took me a minute to work that out.
If true, I love hearing ITK but why do people take every bit of info as gospel. As A&C always states a pinch of salt should be applied
If our wage cap is the problem, this is the only way we are going to do business... If we are going to do any business at all. Anyway Ali Z makes a lot of sense on this one.
BiPolar is rampant in here. That's why
I'm not bi polar- I'm just a sexually fluid bear
Not having a go at his info, but I'm sure last year you put a stop to people posting his tweets as he wasn't actually receiving any info anymore. Presumably things have changed because that definitely happened last year
