    Morning all.......So, yesterday if you had a post deleted, or found you couldn't post in the thread, be careful.......you're on my list...........:D

    No time to write much, have to take the women in my life to the train station, they are on the rattler to London at 7am for a days moneyspunking, pop into tesco on the way back with a list of things to get, take the dog for a walk and then get the garden furniture sorted. Failure to comply with the assigned tasks would result in retribution that's just too bitter to contemplate.

    My life is shit.

    But, you all know how this ends

    Well done Daniel Levy

    A few bits....

    MB

    OM are desperate, we know it and they know it. The delay has been because they have interest from other clubs and are hoping to inflate the price. MB though has told them he wants us and has already point blank knocked back the idea of going to two other clubs.

    Asked about Janssen but my buddy hasn't anything on this, reiterated again that he was told early by a good source that MP wanted two more "forwards" this window.

    Been enquiries for a lot of our players already but am told again no players MP wants to keep will be sold, period.

    Thanks @Trix! Maybe, maybe this thread can be an ITK discussion thread today... ;)

    I hope we get Michy, but would love it if we also got Janssen. Top that of with Wanyama as cover for Dier and we have a really successful window.

    I will be disappointed again, won't I? :oops:

    Was that last comment made knowing about @Trix info. above. Or is there something else in the pipeline? Rhetorical question! :whistle:

    Interesting stuff. I can't really see us signing Batman and Janssen but maybe they see Batman as a deeper player and Janssen as the backup to Kane.

    If OM are playing that game though we'll have to wait a while on Batman as I suspect we won't raise our bid.

    Great stuff. Much appreciated for sharing @Trix. I would love MB just purely because he is a different player to kane therefore offers us something different. Janssen is a plus would love him too obviously! Doesn't this need to be done soon or am i wrong regarding OM? (This isn't a direct question to Trix either!)

    Nope that will still happen :)

    This sounds positive, 2 additional forwards are what we need if we are to compete on all fronts. Batman, Janssen and Kane will give us lots of options.

    Stonking info mate (y) Bats and Janssen would be great if Poch can keep them sweet.

    Bats - 1st off the bench, option for 2 up.
    Janssen - Understudy

    Could work, as long as Janssen is happy to play that role (guess age is on his side). Plus one injury and he's getting regular game time. Would be another reason to explain why Poch is keen on increasing the number of subs...

    The info from Trix fits in well with the reports from France of Batshuayi having told West Ham that he's not interested.

    It'll be interesting to see who blinks first. We got Lloris for and absolute criminal fee due to the same circumstances at Lyon.

    Appreciate the info.

    You have to love Levy sometimes. Bet he is in his element. The key is that Batshuayi and Janssen want to join us.

    -OM asking for too much.
    -News about Janssen leaks out.
    -OM now know we have a plan B if they don't drop their price.
    -Levy leaves it to the wire.

    Outcome A- OM drop their pants and we get a cheap Batshuayi.
    B- We get Janssen at a lot lower price.
    C- Although I can't see it, we get both.

    Is that two more forwards on top of Batshuayi or two forwards including Batshuayi?

    The information that continues the narrative that Levy is listening to and supporting Pochs judgements and requests is almost as good as incoming signings to me. Been a long time since we have had that trust, continuity and direction.

    To be fair, there is a:

    D) We leave it a little late, get neither, then tempt Rasiak out of retirement to partner Frazier Campbell.


    I certainly prefer your options though.

    I nearly put option D but was hoping that as OM need the money so soon it rules that one out.

    I hope anyway!

    Trix saying two attackers - for me I'd be happy with two STs

    In behind we already have Lamela. Alli and Eriksen coming off good seasons, Son and whoever stays out of Chadli, N'Jie and Pritchard. Plus Onomah although I prefer him central to wide. In addition to that Kane as a #10 is an option also however I do prefer him as a #9.

    I don't think you will be disappointed. But I will be if we do not sign another playmaker which we need over a third striker:depressed:
