    Player watch: Danny Rose

    I think the situation with most of these players is similar - especially Rose and Toby. Clubs with money are less and less keen to land themselves with older players on big wages particularly if they are not out of contract. Tripps and Eriksen are that bit younger and there’s probably more...

    Lewis Cook

    As with every Levy purchase money will be the key here. Well run prem teams like Bournemouth don’t snap your hand off for £30m anymore. They will have seen Villa demanding £40m for Grealish and may well think Cook worth more. We can only hope they have purchases of their own lined up that this...

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread 24th July

    Herc’s fireworks post is interesting - with a clear suggestion the DL is looking a several interconnected ins and outs to get what we want. We’ve all assumed that Martial hinges on Toby going to Utd, but with Blind returning to Ajax they have a obvious hole at left back. Does Danny Rose come...

    Season Ticket Renewal Thread (Read first post)

    Quick question. My members account says I'm number 45,401 on the season ticket list. Does anyone know what that means? Do the 45,400 people in front of me include all the current season ticket holders or am I 45,000 places away from a season ticket? If its the first of those does anyone have any...

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread - POST MORTEM

    When you step back a bit what's astonishing is that for the 6th season in a row our net spend is virtually zero. To achieve that whilst making visible year on year progress is amazing. One of the more interesting snipets of ITK in the last few weeks was a view that this is all due to an...

    Borussia Dortmund Vs Tottenham: Match Thread

    I think last night's selection was all about Potch thinking back a year. At that point we were well placed for a top 4 finish, in the League Cup final and had Fiorentina in the Europa. He opted to play a strong team against the latter and ultimately came-up short in all three competitions. Our...

    Should we prioritise the Premier league?

    If you think about it we are currently in 4 competitions: – The race for the title – The race for top 4 – The Europa League – The FA Cup Given the potential rewards and the likelihood of success we have to prioritise the league. It would be great to win it but given where we are to finish...

    Moussa Dembélé

    Can you do a loan deal with some kind of call back option? Letting him return to Fulham seems ok (if not ideal) provided Harry stays fit but should there be a problem it would be good to have him available.

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread - 1st September 2015 DEADLINE DAY!

    Four thoughts: Our defence is better and we have done a stellar job clearing deadwood. Getting anyone to buy Kaboul was an achievement in itself. Our striking options may be better but we're raw and now need Clinton and especially Son to come off for us. Berahino would have made us stronger...

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread - 31st August 2015 THE CLOCK IS TICKING!

    £20 in the pot. I'm figuring it's some kind of karma. If I'm spending so might Levy.

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread - 21st August 2015

    I just can't envisage a scenario where Levy lets Fazio go to WBA without the Berahino deal agreed. A bit of separation so that Fazio doesn't feel like a make-weight makes sense but the whole thing just feels like pre-scripted game of poker where each side is laying down their agreed cards –...

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread - 13th August 2015

    Surprised more isn't being made of some kind of Berahino / Fazio swap deal. Their interest in Fazio was trailed in the press again today including local Birmingham-based papers who often get good info. This type of deal is hard to make work I know (perhaps why the ITK about lots of crossing t's...

    Poch warns new signing Dele Alli he must calm down

    This is such an annoying story on two fronts. Firstly the Liverpool fan suggests he'd rather be elsewhere when he clearly chose Spurs over Liverpool. Secondly Poch simply say he needs to stay calm and carry on playing the way he has. There's no element of criticism. Really shoddy antiSpurs...

    An open letter to Gareth Bale

    Perfectly put. It would be lovely to think he reads it.
