Here we go........
You know the rules.
I'm looking forward to the ITK on Isco and then eventually signing Snodgrass
@dovahkiin wheeeeereee arrreee youuuu...?
Oh boy here we go again!
Christmas came early!
Bring it on guys!
Can see this being a fairly depressing place to be in January tbh. Just hope results pick up to counter balance the probable lack of activity.
No sensible person will be expecting much transfer activity.
This thread does lack those sensible people at time though.
Oh god, here we go again. It's like watching the most horrific, yet somehow beautiful car crash in the world. I'm not expecting much action from us at January at all tbh though.
Our best bit of business could be getting rid of our biggest bit of business
My guess is if we sign anyone it'll be a Dele Alli style youngster with a loan straight back to his current club.
Correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure the last time we did anything significant to improve the first team in January was when we were bang in trouble in 2008/09 and signed Defoe, Keane, Palacios and Cudicini?
We've been quiet in January since and I see no reason to expect anything different this season.
I've just come out of my final session at ITK anonymous and all is right with the world.
Early days yet to pass judgement, but our summer signings don't inspire confidence Vincent Janssen, Moussa Sissoko and Pau Lopez. As yet we've seen nothing that improved our squad. Our transfer team seem tomwork on the basis of if we buy enough players one of them is bound to be a success.
It's the first day so how about everyone makes a little box with a slot in it and every time we look in the ITK section we drop a little coin in it, doesn't have to be much 1p, 5p or 10p, after all you are bound to swear. and on February 1st it'll make a nice donation to the fund without much pain at all.
Hope this post is acceptable A&C if not by all means delete.
Last time I did that I ended up on embarrassing bodies and was known as mr gojangles.
It was the only coin slot I could find
So the transfer thread has been open nearly 10 mins already, WHERE'S THE ITK!!!
Let's buy all the players. ALL OF THEM.
Fuck. The window closes last day of January doesn't it? I may have opened this a month earlier than intended
I think we only need the one player, it just needs to be a special one that can bring something extra to our attack. The trouble is, there are only a handful of players with the quality to be able to do that, and most of them won't be available to us. Isco is the dream, but I think Coric may be the realistic possibility.
Little optimistic aren't you.....
