Here's another thread for you to soil, annoy us and ultimately be in receipt of a massive searing pain as Il Grande Bastone works it's way up your bumhole.

I converted Goats cryptic into twenty seven different languages and back into English again, and i still have no fucking clue!

Google English Converter:

"The pain itself is a lot of pain he likes to be clumsy and shuns the pain that no one can pay for. They are the exception to the blinds they are craved for, they do not see, they are at fault for those who abandon their offices, that is the hardships that soothes the soul."

Just curious has anybody solved those cryptic ??‍♂️
The best one I've seen is that the text was in Latin
Latin - Roman
Text - SMS
So SMS from Lazio in Rome.

I'm off to lay in the sun now.

Lorem Ipsum is placeholder text used by designers. It has no intelligible meaning. The translation wasn’t the clue.

SMS works best for the cryptic. I'm also going to do a classic spurs fan and put 2 and 2 together and get eleventy nine...

ITK has been talking about an AM that is more exciting that Maddison. This fits the bill. We know that it would be huge money which means we would have to spend less on a CB, enter Kim Min-Jae.

If we have to go on this tied into Hercs ITK.

sms would be someone most would be happy with. Calhanoglu I think so but after Maddison would be left disappointed. Zaniolo I don’t think so.

herc says can play more forward than CM which doesn’t actually mean The wings.

Trying to find a replacement?
Calhanoglu would be replaced with Mkh and Asmalli already
Zaniolo Roma are looking at Dybala and another forward from Atalanta.

Theres also whispering of Arsenal placing a bid of £43m for SMS which won’t be taken. And if we aren’t playing with Nelson’s. I can see us offering 50-70m based on that and what you could deem Maddison would be available for.

also wouldn’t it be a surprise if our highest transfer this summer is a rotational player?

You would have to define "rotational" - but right now Richarlison is our highest transfer and he would be classified as "rotational".

Bringing in another player capable of being in the XI, but having to compete with another player for minutes, is what Title contenders do. Particularly if you have intentions of competing for multiple trophies.

Yep we've still got this obsession with a first 11 and rotational players thereafter.

We need a quality squad of 22, end of.

Comparing prices in todays market is irrelevant.

Build a squad capable of competing and let the players compete and its the managers headache.

Exactly that, I don’t see why any player is guaranteed to start..imo if you want win things you have to have players playing for their places every game.

Looking back over the transfer ticker and ITK this window I think I have spotted some not very subtle hints about who we are after:

Hercules said that we have a "few good irons in the fire" and that we are after an attacking player that can play anywhere in midfield and attack. We know that Jarrod Bowen was linked to us before joining Spam and over the last couple of days stories about him leaving have started coming out. I think we are after him again....
