If Spurs had the highest offer for Lo Celso and Betis really do need the money, then yes.
Well then our bid is the highest bid. The press linking us with others wont make the slightest bit of difference to that, and it certainly won't affect the asking price.

The ITK all seem very optimistic that the bald leopard has changed it's spots, so fingers crossed.
I'm not sure that's the case as there has been money available in the past windows when we haven't signed anyone. There is certainly more money available now, but thats down to our change in circumstance not Levy having searched down the back of his sofa.

The biggest factor is that we are a far more attractive proposition to incoming players. That will be the reason we get our preferred targets where in the recent past we haven't.

Not what I said, and imo I'd stop asking questions or A&C will get his grrrr face on.
Fair enough. I guess things can change we can increase our offer or they can decrease the asking price being the most obvious.

That last paragraph is what it's all about. Cheers, Trix.

This is why people are more optimistic. Levy has done all our facilities got a manager to build it up fro academy now a first team to shine ..... that's the hope but it's the hope that kills you.

Thanks Trix as always.

This quote is one that I hate and cringe seeing...maybe because it’s so true!

Several weeks ago poch made reference to changing the way we work in a presser. He was then asked if that meant more money and he said no. I took that to mean that Levy would need to bite the bullet and buy players earlier instead of playing chicken all the time and waiting until the end of August to get a bargain. Poch is well known for refusing to play players who arent fit enough, so I guess that for poch if a player isn't onboard by the beginning of preseason we might as well not bother. I believe that in part explains our lack of signings. I think that money has always been there but poch wants the players he wants and wants them early.

So essentially, what we are seeing at the moment is the result of us having the finances to go after more expensive players but crucially we are doing so earlier and more aggressively.

It may not work out, buying the top players is far from straight forward as they know that they can expect plenty of offers. But it certainly is promising that we are bidding big for the players that we want.

We certainly are at a crossroads, we need to push on to the next level and now us the time. If we dont take some risks now it may be a long time before we are in a position to do so again!

Bruno is pure class. Watching the final, he's on the ball every attack making things happen. Man Utd getting a good player.
