    Premier League officially postponed until 17th of June

    I genuinely don’t care what happens anymore. It will start up when it starts up. Haven’t missed football in the slightest

    Furloughing staff

    My issue with the scheme are how companies that don’t necessarily need it, still use it and I feel we are one. Plenty of clubs finding ways round not having to furlough. I get it’s business, but it’s taxpayer money that we have to find at a later date. There’s enough cash around the club and...

    Players will have their own expenses and financial commitments I am sure, so foregoing their whole salary is a bit much - but there is certainly scope for them to be offering as much financial support as they can. We hope the current discussions between the Premier League, PFA and LMA will...

    Manager watch: Jose Mourinho

    I thought Jose was a good appointment as he was a winner, and moreso, showed ambition by levy My concern is, we have no clear identity, we don’t seem to be trying to deploy and structure or any gameplan. Our season is pretty much dead now so hopefully this means we’ll start trying a new method...

    Manager watch: Jose Mourinho

    I think if we went toe to toe with RB last night, with our current squad situation we’d get slaughtered. They are a very good team, were very good in the press and in transition, I think we’d have been picked off. Rode our luck a bit, Lloris made some big stops but we are a misfit of a squad...

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread - The Pinball Wizard on DEADLINE DAY!

    Well I can only imagine we are possibly going through a sale, and any potential buyer doesn’t want large transfer debts before purchase. Otherwise ‘the bank watching us’ and ‘we are not skint’ is completely contradictory in terms of player acquisitions Exceptions being players of the Dybala /...

    In fairness it didn’t. We never addressed our pressing issues before

    Yeah, we knew he had failed 2/3 years ago, so point still stands.

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread - The Pinball Wizard on DEADLINE DAY!

    Easy. It goes back longer than this window. We’ve not had a suitable alternative to Kane and so run him into the ground - and sorry for all his lovers, Llorente was not a suitable alternative - chipped in with a couple goals but was never deemed good enough to allow Kane a rest. The...

    Player Watch - Steven Bergwijn

    Lucas, and to a lesser extent Dele and Son are all players that thrive on instinct. Given time to think and their decision making becomes slow and ponderous. Similarly their movement is also poor hence why we don’t do much pass/move/pass intricacies in the final third. Footballing intelligence...

    No issue with the former, it’s the latter that’s done it for me

    The "He's not the Messiah, he’s a very naughty boy" 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...
