I'm more of a Brannigans man personally, their beef & mustard is exceptional. I like the thick cut, it reminds me of the crisis my late grandmother used to make back in Cyprus. Compared to those Walkers are anemic.

I have been given spam ratings on this thread for posts which are mildly off topic- you lot are banging on about fucking cheesy snacks and remain unscathed. There's much injustice on thus forum...:hungover:

No Quavers here in Australia, so I'm going to reserve judgement until I see a tweet from Lyall for his thoughts on the matter.

This must be the 100th time we've had "I've heard something but I'm drunk" from an ITK - albeit it was mainly Eatson. Then they don't clarify for a good few hours, "sorry I was so hungover - basically...". Is it some weird kick people get out of knowing that a bunch of strangers online are here waiting on bated breath for word from them?

I'm not meaning to "bash" but it comes across as attention seeking in the extreme. If you've taken the time out of your night of drinking to make a teasing post - why not just actually share the info? Seems like a pointless exercise to me, but whatever floats your boat.

Quavers are the shittest crisp going, fwiw


Quite simply I fell asleep, if you think I'm attention seeking then there is two possible solutions that I can see. One I stop posting, or two you stop reading. I always post everything I hear in as much detail as I can, Always have. If I can't post it as I hear it I either, don't or it gets passed on via other avenues. Comparing me to Neil fucking Eatson though because of one post, when I have been posting stuff on here and before that on COYS for years...... :mad:

As for everyone else(those I don't want to slap across the chops with my quaver flavoured penis) what I was told last night....

Starting to look a lot better regarding the outs. Serious interest in all of them, and less resistance(on most parts) to leave. Told we are looking at an AM and a contingency plan if we can move a couple more.

Says he still hasn't heard anything re Zaha and his opinion is that it is "game playing" and he doesn't believe the interest is serious.

Great info from @Trix, thanks buddy - positive news about a few more moving on, if we can get rid of Chadli for a start that would free us up for Nkoudou and to keep Njie which I would be very happy with.

Based on Trix's info I suspect we won't see anything big in the next week.

Hopefully we'll move on a few (Mason, Chadli, Bentaleb if he hasn't gone already, Carroll maybe) but I'm not sure how that makes a massive difference as to who we sign.

I certainly don't think we'll be making any 20m+ moves at this stage of the window, so I expect to see maybe an N'Kandou sort of signing and that's it.

Cheers @Trix

Definitely seems like the tide changed on outs a day or two ago. Yedlin, Bentaleb, Mason fee agreed today. Looks like the club had a colonic.

AM would be an useful signing to make, we could use another link man for when Eriksen is quiet, although with the N'koudou, Burke and Zaha links does seem like a winger is priority for Poch these days. I think the AM will need to be able to play in the Dembele role also though considering the outs.

Not really sure on the contingency plan comment, doesn't that usually mean resolving something that has gone wrong, maybe Son leaving :nailbiting:

Not meaning to call you "stupid" but that was a pretty stupid thing to post in the last few days of the window. Hopefully A&C is in a charitable mood and you've not pissed @Trix off too much.

Wouldn't it be nice. Someone, somehow with a bit of pedigree. Not quite the untried, one for the future but someone who has actually achieved something. I am not at all suggesting a player that will cost the earth but someone who actually will guide and make a difference.
