    The "He's coming home" Gareth Bale Thread

    Barnett got Bale an £85m transfer to his dream club, and £600k a week on his second contract that still has another 2.5 years left to run. He’s the opposite of a shit agent. Plus, Bale has all the cards. He wants to play, he takes a pay cut. His choice. He wants the money? It’s his, he’s...

    Edinson Cavani

    I think 1.5 plus an optional 1 if he makes enough appearances is perfectly fine, he’s an experienced player that can play with or instead of Kane. No different to Llorente who was 32 and was with us for 2 years. Hell, there’s even rumours of him coming back! Obviously he’d have to agree to that...

    Player watch: Christian Eriksen

    The guy had the opportunity to win the CL 6 months ago but stunk the place out when we needed him most. No one showered themselves in glory that night but for a guy that thought he was going to be a galactico he should have done better. That’s when the chapter on him closed for me

    Yep, said at the time it was a case of him switching off for a second, reacting late, trying to get back into position, wrong footed and then done by a very good first touch and finish. Show's how important concentration is, switch off for a split second at this level and you get punished. Not...

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread - The Wheels on the Bus

    You can like and respect someone yet still feel they are bad for your career. Wanting to leave because you don’t think you can progress is different to acting sly.

    Player watch: Danny Rose

    He now has a habit of clearing the ball straight to the opposition. Like he can’t kick the thing. Puts us under immediate pressure. A few of them do at the moment. If there’s no option on, put it out of play, defending 101 Times definitely up for Danny, great servant but no room for sentiments...

    Injured isn’t he? Not expected to return for another month or two

    Player Watch: Tanguy Ndombele

    Pretty sure they are given fitness schedules by the club. Think I heard it on the Peter Crouch podcast. These are multi-million pound assets (hate that term but it is what it is) and would be negligent of the club not to have some element of control over their bodies during the summer

    Player Watch: Tanguy Ndombele

    Was there not a bit about his attitude towards fitness in his younger days, that he had to work harder than others because his natural physical state was of a heavier set? I recall a piece about his mental strength breaking into the Amiens team, maybe that's slipped. Big move, big money can see...

    Of course, but he's not a magic bullet that will fix all our problems. I said it would be a good start but we've been burnt before with optimism so i'll remain reserved until there is actual progression squad-wide. Prob won't bring him in though so will in all likelihood be a moot point

    KK would be a statement, and I am not for a second suggesting I would be unhappy with that - but him transforming us like VVD I find a stretch right now simply because of the two fullbacks pool have vs ours as well as their incredibly hard working but technical CM. Needs to be a collective...

    If it was a choice, we have Sanchez as the long term

    Player watch: Toby Alderweireld

    Think that will be down to Jan's happiness in the new LB / LCB role - if he accepts that is his position under Jose, he may get a couple years . Do need an alternative option with pace though, someone who can match/keep up with speedy wingers. If it weren't for his goal, I imagine he'd be having...

    We weren’t great general performance but they worked hard and got a result. Excellent defensively on set pieces too. Credit to Wolves, they were very good. great weekend of results
