Grealish prepped to travel down today. Clubs are closer now so as long as no last minute swerves we should be good to go. Terms with the player and agent all agreed, and have been for ages.

One today one tomorrow I'm told is the play, but the way this window has been don't count anything out including Martial.

Excellent! ITK to start the day. Thank you.
Excited to see progress being made on fresh faces to add something new and increase competition. And JG has all the potential to be very very good!

Why would you say that? You've just gone and opened a massive can of worms Trix.
This place is gonna go off, with the slightest hint of Martial coming.

Thanks for update. As things are I would say Martial is the most likely one (and always had a sneaky feeling we would get him, it's the only way Levy can save face in this window), as this is the most progressed. We must definetely have already discussed basic terms and agreed in principle with him (if he visited us twice), he wants to leave Utd, and we have Toby as leverage.
All other names we were linked to, are very far......

Nice to see some movement from the club, hopefully this is the start of a late flurry of activity. Thanks for sharing Trix.

So, if Jack signs today and Martial is potentially in the works as a 3rd signing, the mystery 2nd signing tomorrow would likely be a defender, assuming Toby's out... Either that or a versatile CDM/CM like Sander "Clegane" Berge

If that's how it plays out, I'd call it a pretty smashing success considering the pessimistic narrative throughout the window. Bolster much needed CM and Attacker positions, and increase depth to the point of it being a strength - apart from several questions about our backline if anything goes amiss. Though all in all, much better than most might've guessed this week

Would be super interesting to learn who the other options were besides JG - plus the answers to still-unresolved crypics!

Is he sitting at the end of his bed Waiting for his grandad to pick him up? Then travel down the M40 at 34mph in the middle lane. Life doesn’t get any better than this, unless they find a Little Chef en route.

Great ITK - Thanks Trix!

Hoping we get Grealish and nothing goes wrongs, gives that bit of cover. Would be very excited to get Martial, always really thought he’d be a great addition just thought a CM was more important and who knows now we may get all 3! I don’t know how I have remained optimistic but don’t let me down little bald man or I may even start doubting Santa!

I’m reading Trix’s latest itk as confirmation of it being a Toby/Martial swap deal or no deal which is excellent news. If this doesn’t happen, does it then effect the type of player we go for as mystery player #2?

Hoping the second tomorrow from Trixs info is a proper passing midfielder who can make our team tick, that’s what we are crying out for.

Martial would be immense and would be outstanding if it happened.

Had a punt on Grealish so from a personal perspective this is good news: my 407 children get new shoes.

On a more speculative note, the Martial point is the real touch paper to emblaze our febrile imaginations. Less than 34 hours to go and it sounds like anything can happen. This place now steps up to match Arkham Asylum in the loony stakes

At this stage - Grealish signing will be very welcome. Still seeing any other as a bonus. Don't want to get too excited as all Trix said is not to rule anything out.

Well that’s a nice way to start the morning off. Thanks trix. Sounds realistic too. Just so hope we can land martial as well. What a boost that would give everyone going into Saturday and he’s had a pretty season with Utd. Up until the last couple of weeks ;)

Just gonna sit back now and wait for another itk with negative stuff to send us back on the downward spiral. Gotta love a transfer window. Haven’t you....... haven’t you?

Are we certain there is a mystery #2?
