    Player watch: Christian Eriksen

    Good move for him and the club. The fact that Poch and Jose continued to play him, Herc's ITK on his professionalism and the players clearly backing him on the pitch suggests that whatever the problem was, those on the inside understood and accepted it. I've always wondered if it was more of a...

    The "He's coming home" Gareth Bale Thread

    Thanks Trix. His salary is a huge ball and chain when it comes to him moving anywhere. At least he has the key even if he is reluctant to use it.

    The "He's coming home" Gareth Bale Thread

    i don't think his motivation is the call up but rather it is being at his best so that he could lead Wales as far as it could get. Perhaps i'm wrong.

    Since you are a doctor, i'll take your word for it but would have thought if it was dyslexia, it would have been "eteP"

    The "He's coming home" Gareth Bale Thread

    I'm not sure its that simple. The vast majority of athletes want to play. They may not be willing to take the financial hit a compromise would require, but there can be cases where the pain is so great, they are willing to compromise, e. g. Eriksen. At the risk of stating the obvious, with...

    Player Watch: Serge Aurier

    Don't get the Serge is the worst crowd. He was bad with moments of quality. He has improved and making fewer of the bone headed plays we were accustomed to. I say keep him to see if the present trend continues. Better recovery runs, staying on his feet and better positioning could make...

    The "He's coming home" Gareth Bale Thread

    Grain of salt on this and the ITK. It is an interesting contrast to Herc's statement yesterday regarding Bale's interest in coming back (ideally). It isn't completely counter to the Trix and Herc info. It is factual and both our ITKers said the deal would be difficult, but agents are known...

    The "He's coming home" Gareth Bale Thread

    As long as we get a back up striker and a top notch DM, this will be a successful window. Bale would be fantastic and would change the fundamentals but that DM position is vital.

    The "He's coming home" Gareth Bale Thread

    The key to this is the details of the deal and whether he can stay healthy. i would love him back but not at any price. What he adds to the team is exceptional. An understanding of the mentality to succeed at the highest levels, capabilities that would create space for the players around...

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread - Rainbow

    Thanks Trix! Thanks Herc! So i go off the grid 10 minutes before Trix's epic post. Come back on line and see that the ITK post has grown by 5 pages and have over two hours to drive before i can sit down and digest the turn of events. Perhaps the biggest piece of news wasn't the negotiation...

    Edinson Cavani

    Cavani would give us much better odds of achieving it and the attacking flexibility with a player like him and Kane on the same team would be substantial. The first of two questions is whether or not Jose could create an attacking plan that would allow Kane and Cavani to play as much as they...

    Maybe if Levy has his bonus for the first and second transfer windows already wrapped, he can proceed to wheel and deal

    Thanks Herc. It's disappointing to hear that the talk about ambition by DL may be hollow. I've been generally quite positive about DL and JL as it seemed they realized the value (both personally and professionally) of turning Spurs from a major team in the EPL to a major team in the world. It...

    There is at least one better pirate name but i think we are a little late to sign him. The Black Pearl himself. Eusebio

    Gabriel Barbosa

    Thanks. I finally watched the clip and came away impressed. It wasn't only the tap ins that were impressive but the follow up goals. He certainly anticipates and move into space where the ball was going ahead of the defenders and his own teammates. His ability to shoot or pass with power...

    Player watch: Christian Eriksen

    I think the problem was his honesty and opening his mouth during the CL final. He would probably still be in the same boat if he hadn't said what he said since he wasn't signing a new contract. However, the quote exacerbated the problem. People now associate his desire to leave with his...
