Its not a super stunning window, but a window in a longtime that has addressed areas we actually needed looking at and being delivered. We didnt get that razmatzz signing(but we did tried) , most including myself hopefull of a pacey defence unlocking attacker, though we have a proper plan b upfront with llorente, also he adds quality on top of it just being a plan b. A fit barkely would have been great, added extra compeition and also offeres a different style and option of play depending on the game / need etc.. hopefully jan now, and looking back its been a decent window actually, thenncomparing with a few other london clubs we looking even that much better, silent and stealth like till the end as always but potentially very prudent and fruitful :)

Understand Poch and the coaching staff very disappointed at his lack of form and return for pre season with Walker gone they were expecting more ..hence the move for Aurier.

That's a bit harsh, as he got injured in pre season. Unless he turned up for pre season out of shape I suppose.

Still seems a bit odd that Poch took until then to realise we needed someone better for the wing back role.

We're in with the IT crowd
We go where the IT crowd go
We're in with the It crowd
and we know what the IT know.

You have to be old to know the reference and tune of this song, :LOL:



Thanks again to you all and for the staunch work from the mods et al who kept this site running up to speed.
Thanks Mama!

I reckon Poch and his team are right

Agree. And he's still injured in theory, hence the withdrawal from the England squad. Whether he is good enough in general is another thing totally.

I personally don't believe that.

I can't believe Poch, who showed very little interest in giving opportunity to Trips prior to the Walker fallout last season, all of a sudden having these huge expectations of him.

Walker was always going to be replaced.

Firstly sorry for the delay, I've been a bit busy with work since Friday.

Walker and Rose

Both had their heads turned by England players from other clubs, Dier as well. Walker didn't have a bust up with Poch as such, but made it clear in January if we didn't win something this year he wanted out and genuinely wanted to go north. Rose is not the brightest tool in the box and has really pissed off Levy and Poch especially the timing of his paper interview, which they felt hindered some of their potential signings. Considering Poch has improved him as a player, he signed a new deal last autumn and has been injured for months he has not done himself any favours. I expect him to be sold by next summer. Don't believe the bollocks about him being applauded by the other players it was the opposite especially Kane and Loris.

Ducks in a row

Probably a stupid phrase to use, what I meant by it was that we had been working on our main targets and alternatives for a long time and only contracts and rubber stamping needed to be done. Batshuayi was an example that I was told to be stum about and told about Llorente on Thursday night. We also tried for Martins with Gomes as the back up, unfortunately both didn't materialise for various reasons. Apart from those two i.e. quick WF we did what was planned for.

General

I think we have improved both the first 11 and the squad and still made a profit, which I am led to believe we will use in January to go back for Sessignon and Barkley. Re Barkley my contact was a bit meh about him all summer apart from the fact we had some interest at the beginning of the window, hence I didn't post on him much. My opinion is that he is wanted by some of the players more than Poch.

Lastly

A big thank you to all of the mods and especially A&C and Rob. There are some great posters on here, but unfortunately there are also some real knobheads and for that reason I am going to retire as an ITK. It has all become too stressful and with idiots putting stuff out on fake twitter it puts my contact in a dodgy position. With things being tighten up at the club any info going out to the wider world can be traced back to just a few people. You still have some great ITKs , but please give them a break next window otherwise I can see no ITK in the future.
As for you knobheads I am going on a cull and putting all offenders on my ignore list.

That is a genuine shame. You've provided some great information over the years and, although not necessarily unique amongst in the ITKs in being able to write, spell and type, I did appreciate how you communicated as well as what you communicated.

Enjoy your retirement (although, if you do decide to change your mind or even temporarily transform yourself into a more caprine animal going forward, we'll welcome you and your information as always).

Cheers and all the best.

Thanks for all your info GF. It's a pity a few wankers spoil it for everyone else but I do understand your decision and, like those above have said, hope you'll stick around the mad house! (y)
