    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread - 28th June

    Because that’s not how business works. This isn’t choosing a supplier for the canteen - it’s spending £100m+ on assets which will determine your success for the year ahead. The CEO / Chairman will still be involved at some level, albeit probably at a high level, but not unusual to have board...

    Tottenham Takeover Talk

    MSP were the original buyers - they backed out and 777 stepped in. MSP leant money to Everton way before most people had even heard of 777 Partners.

    Can we take a moment to laugh heartily at Everton?

    Going into administration doesn’t automatically wipe your debts. The administrators job is to find a buyer for the business. Whilst in control they are liable for any new liabilities, and may sell assets to provide cash flow. The banks and financiers aren’t going to agree to walk away with...

    Player Watch: Cristian Romero

    Players will still want to move on regardless. There are and always will be bigger teams than us - the lure of Real Madrid etc will never fade.

    He’s thinking about amortising the transfer fee…. Totally ignoring the fact he’ll have the pay the bloke 4 and a half years wages as a pay off when he sacks him in December.

    Mauricio Pochettino

    A couple more jobs and he’ll end up at West Ham. And he may do very well for them too.

    Just never make the mistake of remembering - or bring up their mistakes. Now that’s a death wish 😁

    Lets all laugh at Newcastle

    I was there to watch this game - the A League team were literally just walking through them towards the end of the game. Could have been a much higher score with some better finishing. I know it was a bunch of kids Newcastle put out - but still, they should have done much better. his A League...

    Off to Australia...

    For all the fanfare about the seagulls …. they appear around the same time at almost every event I’ve ever been to at the MCG and AAMI park across the road. They must be able to smell the chips 🍟 after everybody’s gotten their half time snacks. Evil pricks at times too… thought one was going...

    Yes, it’s on 10Play which is free to air tv.

    Mauricio Pochettino

    Can’t seem him going there given he’s said in record he would never manage them or Arsenal due to his ties to Espanyol and Spurs…

    Off to Australia...

    In terms of club exposure - which is what this is all about, I’m here in Aus and plenty about Spurs and Ange on the tv / news etc leading up to the game. Haven’t seen a single thing about Newcastle yet 🤷🏻‍♂️. Finally relented and am going to get tickets and go along. Looks almost sold out so...

    Off to Australia...

    It’s a big sporting country - made up of a lot of immigrants, who have a big interest in football, and sport in general. Big stadiums, and very little access to high quality live football games means these things get a lot of attention. And generate a lot of money. Given it’s a friendly - they...

    Newcastle are playing two games, not just one. Arsenal Ladies are also out here for a game. And AC Milan are playing Inter Milan out here a week later. It’s not like we are the only ones doing it.

    It’s Melbourne …. It’s late Autumn. Max of about 18° this week so its cold - it’s hardly a week in the sun on the beach. I don’t feel sorry for them but it’s a shit flight, they’ll land sometime today - open training session tonight, play the game tomorrow and then get back on the plane and fly...

    The VAR Thread

    No way they can get rid of it. Change the way it is used for sure - but getting rid of it will cause even more problems. those complaining about match day experience - would you rather not have VAR and then lose a game due to an incorrect offside call, or a penalty not given?

    Same as investment in Infrastructure / sale of the same. How can you declare the profit on the sale if you don’t have to declare the expense.

    Can we take a moment to laugh heartily at Everton?

    other reports say they cannot afford it. MSP leant Everton £150m this season - and they had to bring in 3 other backers, including Moshiri to even fund that. The article I read said the clubs debt had more than doubled since MSP were previously interest just a year ago, and any new owners...
