    So let's get this straight:-

    Zaha - Signed £100k+ plus new deal (at fricking Crystal Palace) :dead:
    Sessegnon - We 'won the race' but he chose to sign a new contract at his boyhood club :dead:
    Foyth - Deal looked on, then off to PSG, not looking great :(
    Pereira - First choice RB backup, didn't do due diligence on ownership issues :dead:
    Keita Balde - Followed since Jan, now off elsewhere :dead:
    Barkley - Absolute saga :sleep:
    Gazzaniga - Supposedly on, looks cheap and pony, yet still not over the line :rolleyes:

    Going well Spurs (y)

    Well this brings into play the English backup and i'm hoping we can get King in over no one. I know he's no Keita but I think he's solid and he'd do a squad job for us, he gives us pace as well which I think we're lacking. There's also the Poch improvement factor too.

    After missing out on multiple targets i'd definitely take Barkley, King and Toljan/Cancelo now. Although slightly weaker at RB it still leaves the squad stronger overall I think especially if Lamela turns out to be OK in a month or two.

    Starting to lose faith now. Even Andre gray looks like going Watford. We really are gonna end up running out of options. Need a few players in two weeks. Will try and keep the faith.

    That's a shame. I think Balde would have really given us something different. But there we are; it was good while it lasted. That flurry of ITK activity last night served to distract us, I feel, from the really crucial piece of information that was slipped-in almost imperceptibly; the news that the Perreira transfer had collapsed. That, for me, is the biggest disappointment. We're about to start the campaign without a first-choice right back, despite our manager publically stating the need for a replacement, despite his publically stating that KWP isn't yet ready, despite knowing right at the beginning of the window that Walker was always going to be sold, despite scouting 3 potential replacements that are relatively inexpensive and accessible, despite raising around £80 million in sales, despite the lure of Champions League football and one of the best young managers around. We've sold the world's most expensive defender, and have currently "replaced" him with an academy player. For a club with aspirations of winning the league, that's pretty shit, and I can't understand how any true supporter would be cool with that. Hopefully, the Club will rectify that situation by the 1st of September. I can't see how failure to sign a new right back is even remotely defendable. (Who am I kidding, of course it will be defended). Sadly, it looks like the Goats's and Ali Z's ITK about "targets not being delivered with some consistency" is starting to look frighteningly accurate. Let's hope things change, and Levy provides Poch with the squad improvements he's called for.

    Sounds like a big blow going off JJ's tone. Seems like a player who would've definitely improved depth and given us a pacy option. Shame

    Just bored of this rhetoric.
    Poch has just said fans to expect 3 or 4 signings. I trust the man , so going to be patient. Only player I really want this window is Barkley. Let's see if we can do that.
