    Manager watch: Jose Mourinho

    Exactly this. Mourinho is looking for his leader in centre mid and at the back. All his best teams have had it and all the best prem teams have it, Keane, Toure, Lampard, Kompany, Terry, Adams etc. They are the ones that make the difference and set the tone. We are lacking that, but I think...

    Player Watch: Giovani Lo Celso

    I didn't see it that way. He just seemed pissed at the journos to me and was giving the comment re his job to wind up the journo. Just like the answer to the Lamella question. Onions. I may well be wrong and just saw what fits my mood (which is pretty good as Mrs Messy tells me she's got the horn!)

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread - 29th July 2019

    And this seems to be quite a widely held view, which seems a bit odd to me. ITK has been very very consistent in who our targets are and are still confident in signing them. If you read all the ITK on here (search by name - it will chill you out a bit!) none of them have said any of the 3...

    Player Watch: Giovani Lo Celso

    Understand what you are saying, but if you are refrring to Pochs comments in the post Real match interview, he really didnt seem to me to be upset with anyone apart from the journos. He was really just toying with them after the opening question repeated the same transfer related questions. Take...

    Player Watch: Giovani Lo Celso

    Its worth having a look at the full interview video. He seemed to me to be getting the hump with the journos asking the same transfer questions repeatedly and then replies to the final question that they need to ask the club about the current status (which is right because he isn't doing the...

    Transfer Pledges June-August 2019

    Lo Celso - £20 New Eriksen contract - £10 Toby stays - £10 Sess - £10 All of the above to make it a transfer window beyond what we could have possibly expected - round up to £100 + Bale - £50 (consider it an emotional hedge - I'm a Spurs fan so I need something to bring a bit of misery with the...

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread - 28th June 2019

    Long time lurker, occasional poster, supporter of amazing causes. I've donated to Vics page and sending best wishes and thoughts to you @Mr Pink. The bigger the love, the bigger the hurt and that is ultimately all that gets you through it. £50 to Rob's coffers when @Stoof's Ndombele stamp arrives

    Player watch: Christian Eriksen

    Would love to see us in for Ruben Neves at Wolves. Widely rumoured to be targeted by Scousers, but has the passing and dead ball skills we lose if Eriksen goes, amazing work rate and stronger than Eriksen defensively. Be very strong in a midfield 3 alongside Winks and Ndombele /Sissoko

    Match Ratings Ratings vs Barcelona

    Just back from the game. Completely agree with all of this. We improved a lot when Diet came on. May be coincidence, but he shored us up in the centre and kept possession much better than Wanyama, who was poor. Pamela was the absolute standout for us and Kane looked back to his best. Lovely...

    Nope, I was at the game and Sanchez looked shit there as well! He had an absolute shocker.

    The Summer Transfer Window POST MORTEM THREAD

    Get the frustration and the questions are fair and valid, but i wonder if this isnt going to get jumped on by the media and used to fuel an already unhelpful and divisive (and arguably incorrect) narrative that the club is falling in disarray, which Poch doesn't agree with at least publically...

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread DEADLINE DAY!

    If Toby and Poch are all good, then this is better than any new central defender we could have signed as a replacement. I really only feel like we would be short a Dembele replacement (he can be nursed through the season) and a back up for Harry! Definite missed opportunity this window, but not...

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread 8th August

    Got to agree with this. For sure there are 2 or 3 possible additions that could have materially strengthen the team/ squad. However, and this is from Poch himself "either a player gives you something specific you're lacking, or you're better off not signing anyone" I don't think anyone...

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread - 1st September 2015 DEADLINE DAY!

    In that case, in the interests of blind optimism, I'll stump up £50 per in today, doubled if one of them is Javier Martinez. Great work A&C and the mods/ ITKs from a long time lurker...
