Trix's info comes across as 3 in, >3 out with Sess being one of the 3 and 2 of Fernandes, Lo Celso, Coutinho and Dybala joining him.

Thank you.

Interesting that BF is the least likely. Presumably this is because he is the player the club want least, it surely can’t be because this looks like being the hardest deal to conclude.
Exactly my first thought, surely BF is the easiest as we have heard terms agreed etc so it would just be fee

Thanks Trix

Can you lock the thread until one of the ITK want to post some news?
Would that not then make this thread the itk read only thread? Which already exists.
Whilst the spam, guessing, lineups etc are not required, why would you not enjoy the itk related excitement and chat that this thread can provide?

The mods work their nuts off to keep this place enjoyable, it just helps if the members use a bit of noddle before getting too carried away with themselves.

Agreed. You'd have to be a bit of a miserable bastard to be unhappy with that.

N'Dombele
(Clarke)
Sessesgnon
Coutinho or GLC
Dybala or Fernandes.

That's a great window right there.

Up to 3 in, 3 or more out... Spurs Spending News it is for the next 36 hours!

And here’s me about to go out for the day with little or no chance to keep track of it all...

Not sure of AY is an acceptable source and not sure if this was posted last night

With regards to GLC

I passed on in good faith that this is one of the transfers that will happen. In my opinion I still think this is the player the manager wants and I believe the manager will get the player he wants. I think that this is Betis holding out to the last minute to get every last penny out of Spurs. DL is a master of a deal how ever much it pisses me off. I want him to pony up the cash and get it done so we can have the players in camp before the season starts

Great news from Trix. Eriksen has been incredible for us but trading him for two of those quality players has to be an upgrade for us.

We may be weaker in any given 90 minutes but gotta be stronger over a whole season.

2 of the 4 would be amazing, BF being the least likely is good too, cuz he's probably the one I was least keen on.

Missed out on all the fun overnight, hope I get a chance to bust the tissues out today!

So as of a brief conversation this morning with two days to go we are pushing for 3 in with even more to go. Sea looks set and it's a 2 from 4 scenario with the others with BF looking least likely as things stand. As I keep saying though within an hour everything can change.

If Levy pulls this off he's a genius, because we are talking about real marquee signings, not just tenuous links to drive their prices up eksewhere.
Thanks Trix. I do wonder if this was Levy’s plan all along, that players of this calibre would come available or it’s literally just fell in his lap through the way he deals up until the last second.

2 from 4 will be great for the club although personally I think the initial reaction to BF will be disappointment due to the other players being discussed.

I've deleted more than enough posts this morning that blatantly ignore the OP. At some point (soon) I'll get bored of that and start deleting the people who ignore it.

This is going to be a wild ride. I don't want you to miss it, you don't want to miss it.
Like an amateur, I managed to schedule a knee op for tomorrow, so will miss much of the deadline day build up and then spend the climactic few hours in a morphine/codeine haze. Visiting this page tomorrow afternoon in that state is going to be a wild ride and then some! :confused::ROFLMAO:

Top ITK this morning. Shaping up to be a classic Spurs deadline day one way or the other.

I hope for Robs sake that we can get a few of these deals over the line. The donations would have been relatively low in the last couple of windows.

Said this late a couple of nights ago, but it makes absolute sense from a negotiating tactic for Betis to take it right to the end, when we have a deadline and they do not ( extra 3 weeks ).

Of course there’s a chance it could not work out for them if other possible players come into the fold for us, but from a theoretical negotiating point of view why would you not drive the other party to the edge when you have the additional comfort that they do not have and believe that your player is the one that they want most.

I'm being greedy. Can't decide which 2 of the 4 I'd prefer. They're all decent

Amateur? more like seasoned transfer window pro......Morphine/codeine haze is the best way to get through a deadline day with Spurs


Good luck btw..

Bascially adding to the Spam here but I didn't realise there was a read only until after my post and secondly although I do enjoy the general banter held within this thread sometimes it can be quite overwhelming when 7 people post almost word for word the exact same opinion in a row, that was my main grievance and reason for the request. Would also reduce the amount of admin needed on the site ;)

£50 in the kitty if we pull off the 2 out of 4 in any combination. Big thanks to all the ITKs and Mods for such a great thread.

I think this is really interesting.
Dybala and Coutinho are far more splashy high profile signings but I have been wondering if GLC may still be the most important?

GLC plus either Dybala or Coutinho would be perfect for the XI imo

Dybala and Coutinho would be crazy for the club and profile tho. Obvs wouldnt be disappointed if they were wandering round the pitch Saturday!
