Morning fruitcakes​
Todays's the day! Zipadeh DooDaah Zipadeh Day Tottnum Hotspur sign Soldado I say.​
Yep, today is the day. Hallelujah! Finally some good news to offset the angst.​
How do I know all this? Well, i'm told the first thing Daniel Levy does every morning is check this thread for ITK and to see how his bastard sons are doing. He won't let us down. Today is Deal Done Day!​
SO GET IN THERE!!!!​
PLEASE READ AND ALLOW TO SINK IN: We've given everyone their head on the Bale subject for a couple of days in this thread becuase it would have been pretty much futile to have done anything else. I think by now you've all had your say and it's now a case of waiting to see. There's nothing new being added and nothing new being said. Onions and Circles. So regardless, I think now is the time to direct the Bale stuff toward the player thread and leave this free for any ITK on other matters. So please can we now have all bale stuff in the players thread.​
Short & Sweet today​
Onions.​
Todays word of the day is: getintherebaby!​
PS: If it isn't announced today Levy is a **** and his bastard sons can take that and poke it up their arses.​

All the talk last night was looking like it will be announced today, so lets hope we announce this and bale isn't going to Real.

Regarding sigurdsson. Just because there is interest doesn't mean we want to sell him. If only I could think of an example where this is happening.....

To travel back in time is great just wished you travelled a couple of months more to the time before "the Baledepressiontime".

Mmm good offer, big profit in 12 month, not often Levy lets that get away.

Questions regarding Siggy and Barnett. Are we only getting rid of him because of who his agent is? I like Siggy. :(

And are we getting rid of all the players he has at out our club just because of him?

Ekotto, Huddlestone, Naughton, Parker, Dempsey, Livermore, Adebayor- just a quick list of players we should have sold before Caulker, not to mention Siggy... I don't get it and I REALLY hope we don't sell him

Morning all, I woke up in a bad mood because of your 115 pages of negative drivel... All
be it drivel that i tended to agree with given I'm a pessimist and a Spurs fan (pretty much one and the same tbh). HOWEVER, today's a new day-we will sign Soldado, we are Tottenham Hotspur and the future is Lilywhite with or without the now unmentionable (at least in this thread) Welsh wonder. Whatever happens I'll still be at the lane singing and supporting whoevers playing for us whether it is Simon Dawkins, a world superstar or bloody Kyle Naughton... One or two players dont make a club, we do. So COYS and getintherebaby! bring me some positive ITK and a Valencian soldier.

Couple of weeks before the season starts and it all seems rather chaotic, with half the squad seemingly up for sale. Slightly worrying.

If DL can't trust him, or the relationship has broken down completely on both sides I can see it happening. I like Siggy but if we could get close to 15m for him id be tempted to go for it.

I really hope we don't sell Gylfie just because we are annoyed at the agent.
I said that in yesterday's thread as a joke... calling him a 'sniveling rat bastard' was the clue, seems it was missed by some.

I don't understand the logic in selling Caulker without having a replacement signed and sealed first but AVB clearly doesn't rate him so probably for the best he moved on

Siggy was just coming into his own at the end of the season. Be sad to see him go.

It seems like maybe we were certain about Chirches, but that boat has sailed now.. eh
Who's gonna play with Dawson against Monaco? Can't see us rushing Kaboul back again, too risky

Perhaps we will get a new CB today aswell

Gylfi is already a talented player and I think he's a real asset. Caulker had potential but the money we got was more than we have ever paid for a CB.

Not been able to keep up with any other thread apart from the ITK one this week, so thats good to hear that Soldado may be announced today. Really could do with drawing a line under that one, squaring it off and concentrating fully on the other stuff that is happening.
