Morning!

Yesterday the Gareth Bale hokey Cokey started again and it'll probably get a lot worse as the deadline draws closer, so you might want to get your tin hats on.

Life at home took a turn for the worse yesterday when Mrs A&C broke her arm. Last night she asked if i'd help her with the washing up so I tied a sponge to her forehead. Then she had the cheek to put my piling on of four stones down to the contentment of a happy marriage. It's more to do with shagging a bird who works in Greggs

Then, this morning she said to me,"My nipples are as hot today as they were 30 years ago"........I replied,"They ought to be. One's in your coffee the other's in your porridge.".......But she was well chuffed yesterday when I bought her a set of digital scales. She stood on them and whooped "Oooh! Look at skinny old me! 101 pounds!"

Didn't have the heart to tell her it said 'lol'.

I forgot to mention, last week I had to interview three girls for a position in the office,they all got asked the same question: If you found a twenty pound note on the floow,what would you do with it?

1st girl says: I would ask around to see who had dropped it

2nd girl says: I would check if it was missing from petty cash.

3rd girl says: I would see if anyone was looking and keep it myself.

Who got the job?

And finally.......I was out jogging and saw a poor old lady fall unconscious in the street this morning. Well I'm assuming she was poor, she only had 86p in her purse

Today's word of the day is: Imminent

Ah, raiding the A&C back catalogue for more gems. Great way to start the morning. (y) here's hoping for a continuation of the positive vibe.

Mornin'!

Yesterday was quite epic ITK-wise, hoping for more of the same today. The Bale-dar dropped to 65% positivity for a while but is now back up to 90% after the reaction of the other ITK's.

Lamela and bits about Lewis and investment have to be the highlights. Lamela, Coentrao and Chriches (+Hallilovic) and I'll be happy as a pig in shit...and we actually get some football this weekend!! Man-juice explosion imminent.

never in my wildest dreams as a Spurs supporter did I think we'd possibly spend over 100million in a TF window! But looking the ITK from the last few days- it could really happen. Being a Spurs supporter just keeps getting better. I'll be taking out a second mortgage if we don't sell Bale (which I hope) to cover my pledge of one pound to SC coffers for ever million we are clear this window. Now which of you (or many!) will match my pledge to keep this place going? C'mon- you know you don't want A&C to visit yer mum!

I think it might be more cost effective to buy Willan and Lamela now because I think Bale next season will be gone, we could loan Lamela back to Rome for the season to sweeten the deal.

That would likely be close to 70m initial expenditure, and considering we've already spent 60m (if we eventually get Capoue) I just don't see it.

ghosto farmo keeps saying this and everyone else keeps refuting it.. every time I see the name it reminds me of the Simpsons episode where Homer works at the bowling alley and shines his head in the Shine-o Ball-o machine.

GB may go but hasn't yet. Chris Coleman says Bale is not injured but not fit to play tonight for Wales because he is behind in his prep, not surprising given he was injured.

But the ITK suggests we might so I'm just enjoying the thought that it is a possibility for now. Don't burst my bubble! ;)

I don't think that, even if we do accept the information that Lewis and Levy are happy to open their wallets, we can think of a net £130m expenditure.

We've basically broken even in recent years so to me, 'opening the wallet' means a net spend of around 50-60m.

I hope I'm wrong as I'd love to see us spend an absolute boat load to give us a squad that could threaten the top 3. But it just seems so unlikely that I don't see it at the moment.

I think wpd's biatch already said no... but if we got one and kept Bale this will have been such an amazing window.

We are selling a few, we have saved a bit previous seasons and probably won't have much net spend for a couple of years, plus Lewis money, TV money, new sponsorship/commercial deal, the increased income that would come from qualifying for the Champs League and possibility a big fee for Bale next year. If we think this is the season we have to go for it then I do think that such a spend is feasible.

I cant see it personally - especially if GB stays. If he goes then anything is possible i guess but i dont think it would be easy to get either.

Ultimately 1 of them and bale staying would be my preference.

we are probably just trying for both because its likely that at least 1 or both will not happen

Can't see us spending circa £35m and not having him play this season mullers, I'd be very surprised.
Not usually given to hyperbole but I must say this window is starting to look quite remarkable.

I would think it as possible.... Ade+Parker+Hudd = 15M, add another 10M for Willian.

Lamela will be the TV money of 30M....

Modric money + BAE for Coentrao.

Fuck we end up with one striker and CB less. Can we cope? I bet we can.... Bale plays CF, Capoue plays CB.:D
