    Knew we were in for Martins. Dayum.

    I share poch's lack of enthusiasm for Barkley, but that u-turn he pulled on Chelsea has got him into my good books and would get right behind him if he ended up coming.

    I say save the money, though, and redirect all efforts to get Martins in next summer and work on it from NOW.

    Thanks for all the itk over the years, mate. Totally understand why you're ducking out of the game. Dickheads spoil everything. It's the age of 'anything for likes and retweets'. smh

    Cheers @Grey Fox, as others have said, thanks for your info. It's a shame that our fans are such dickheads.

    Great recap GF. Not sure if it already happened, but did Rob reveal who the insanely difficult cryptic was? GF makes is sound like Martins could have actually been the answer (which I still can't actually understand the logic of how he fit ;) ).

    I don't think you can say we improved our first XI though. Aurier will have to be pretty damn good for that to be true. The squad is definitely stronger.

    Martins would have been sensational. Hope he's still on our list.

    Thanks for everything grey fox, always loved the updates. Hope you'll at least stick around and become part of the asylum

    Unfortunately, I fear Martins may be another one of those players who's window we've missed. I expect him to be far out of price range next summer.

    @Grey Fox Thank you for all your input. Sorry that you have been forced to retire. I do hope that you will maintain contact with SC. Enjoy your retirement.

    So lets sign martins and sessegnon in January and Barkley in the summer

    Sell sissoko nkoudou janssen in the summer and we should have a 0 net spend...

    Then we go balls deep and bring GB home

    These people that make these fake accounts are absolute scum. Would hunt them down for sport. Incredibly infuriating and damaging

    @Grey Fox
    You are legend amongst legends. We will miss you with your insight & knowledge but you must do what's right at the moment if there are ****s about. Hopefully, maybe, you feel you can come back on stream one day with your ITK.

    BUT Spurs Community transfer window will be a MASSIVELY reduced place without your knowledge. Please keep posting as a regular fan because your Football insight is respected by many of us.

    Moving on from this window and such sad info @Rob, @Archibald&Crooks as well as with the greatest respect to @JJetset, @Trix, @Hercules, @dovahkiin, you guys are also legends here and this TRAGEDY, as that is what this is, must be learnt from as you decide how move this fantastic place forward.

    I know there is a thread to discuss the future of ITK & I will endeavour to copy over this post there, but this is the blackest shadow on SC's window.

    God bless @Grey Fox, may you sleep in everlasting ITK peace. I love you.

    thanks for all your info over the years old chap, it's always been appreciated, and a great shame that either someone on here or a viewer has used your nic to build a twitter handle and steal yours and other ITK'ers hard work.

    on the bolded while putting them on ignore, can you not also forwards them to A&C to help stop them helping us lose these valuable sources.

    hope you still contribute to the forum, and good luck

    Our itks are valuable, but does anyone know why the goat doesn't get much use, when most people don't want to expose/track the source. I'd think, in this era of ITK lockdown, that it would be overrun, but doesn't seem the case at all.

    Liverpool were quoted £90m this summer (allegedly) so may already be out of our price range. Hence not getting him.

    Whether you call it from the goat or grey fox, I think the point was there are so few leaks now that any information put out on here is likely to be traceable back to the source.

    @Grey Fox - there are many posters on here who i just ignore no matter what they say. Then there are others who i always read, and search for, for their wisdom and general thoughts. You sir fall into that latter category. You may wish to no longer be an itk but please still ensure you post as a valued member of the community.

    I'm not sure why Gomes was a back up for Martins. They are different players who play in different positions. Makes no sense.

    Part of the reason I feel RO shouldnt automatically go to twitter and the transfer/RO forums should not be viewable to guests. Maybe even restrict access upto a certain number of posts too
