    The Summer Transfer Window POST MORTEM THREAD

    I actually feel that the club has let down the supporters massively this summer in more ways than one. The new stadium should have been an opportunity to further the relationship with the fans, but the massive ticket price increases and introduction of premium tickets within the single-tier...

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread DEADLINE DAY!

    I'm not at all questioning that Herc has been told that they have, but it seems remarkably convenient that Poch and Toby have reconciled on transfer deadline day of all days. I hope that they have, but I remain sceptical.

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread DEADLINE DAY!

    I can't imagine this transfer window has done wonders for ticket sales for the Fulham game, or indeed shirt sales of the new kits. Talk of Levy out and ENIC out is madness, but when the club don't invest in the team it's natural to not want to put your own money back into the club. The new...

    Marcelo Brozovic

    If the release clause is genuine, this is looking like our best (possibly only) chance of bringing in someone before the deadline. That's making the massive assumption that we'd trigger the clause.

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread DEADLINE DAY!

    Surely we're now at the stage where we're only considering players with release clauses that we can trigger, or loan deals that can be agreed relatively quickly? Either way, it appears we're entering panic buy territory.

    Player watch: Danny Rose

    This doesn't make sense unless we've either got a young left back I'm not aware of that we believe is ready to be promoted (and no KWP is not a left back), or we have a homegrown left back lined up. My worry now is that we'll take Luke Shaw as part of the Toby deal, and not Martial.

    I'm still fairly confident we'll sign Grealish. I just hope we don't waste too much time on it and miss out on other, more important potential deals (yeah, I know that's not how transfers work, but in my primitive mind it is). Personally, I hope we've already approached United with an offer...

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread 7th August

    Has igi ever provided any ITK other than 'announcement incoming ITK' before? Without discussing his source directly, it's reasonable to assume that what he's posted might just be someone's opinion, isn't it? Or am I just clutching at more straws than a masturbating scarecrow?

    Bloody typical that the only time we've had interest in Sissoko is when we actually sort of need him. Don't get me wrong, I'd still sell him, but we were already looking very light in CM.

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread 5th August

    Yeah this just doesn't make sense. Martial is pretty much the best player we've been linked to this window aside from Bale. I don't buy the financial argument either, as we've consistently been told his wages are actually quite low (circa 65k a week) and that we're now competitive in this area...

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread 5th August

    Shame we're not looking at a Croatian midfielder instead of forward. The only forward I'd want from Croatia is Perisic and there's no way we're paying a big fee for a 29 year old, so Rebic is the most likely. Personally I'm not at all convinced by him.

    Wilfried Zaha

    Whilst we're talking of lazy narratives, I don't get the argument that Liverpool have massively overspent to bring in players this window. Allison at £68m is definitely pricey but the Fabinho and Keita deals really don't look out of place in this market, and if anything they've got Shaqiri on...

    Was the deadline not supposed to be today? Apologies if it's been posted and I've missed it, can be hard to keep up in here!

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread 2nd August

    I'm not sure I see the Goat's ITK as positively as others do. To me it suggests we've stepped away from the negotiating table (or been ushered away) because we're not prepared to pay the asking price. I wonder how long Palace's stance will be the same regarding meeting that price too - because...

    Wilfried Zaha

    I've agreed with your general point, but at the same time there is absolutely no way that Son is beating Zaha in a sprint over any distance in my opinion. I think Moura possibly could, but Zaha's skill and power is on a different level to both Son and Moura. I think Zaha could have a similar...

    Wilfried Zaha

    I think it'd be all over the media if we'd had a bid accepted. And if we haven't had a bid accepted by now or at least entered into a dialogue with Palace, I just can't see this happening. Martial seems to have gone from the long shot to the most likely forward signing, purely because we have...

    Player watch: Danny Rose

    This could be absolutely nothing at all, but if we're all getting swept up in the hysteria then I wonder if Rose has once again spoken up about our transfer policy. Can't imagine he's too happy about it given his misgivings when we actually were signing players!

    Wilfried Zaha

    As I mentioned, I know ITKs pass on information in good faith, but that doesn't necessarily mean all of the information that they receive is accurate. In this case, it seems likely that it wasn't or that something has changed since the information was received. I'd sooner hear ITK than not hear...

    Wilfried Zaha

    It's looking increasingly likely that this information was not reliable - not knocking those that passed it on - but there's too much evidence that suggests this isn't the case. If we'd had a bid accepted and agreed personal terms with Zaha, there is absolutely no way he would have participated...

    Jack Grealish

    It's pretty clear that Levy's tactics have failed us on this occasion. The only positive I can see is that it surely means we'll have to push a little harder to bring in other, possibly more high profile, targets.
