And now... deleted?
Looks like it.

Can't see the logic behind deleting it considering we had a winter scouting thread and it alleviates having to spam other threads (I get the irony i'm doing that with this post).

Think a big proportion of us would welcome a general Spurs transfer/scouting thread where we can discuss these matters in one place but the powers that be/ @Archibald&Crooks appear to think otherwise.

Probably because this section is still open.

It is really strange, I mean I basically check the Nusa thread for any new links and updates, even the ITKs have knowhere to post outside of the windows.

I enjoyed reading, if not particiapting, the scouting thread. Weird how it takes the mods ages to move a thread to the right area but are straight on something that could have benefited the site.

It seems they delete the thread out of spite. Anyway, back to the Nusa thread for all the latest updates I suppose.

But this isn't the thread for that which is posting relevant updates from yourself and others deemed ITK.

Also expect this thread to close as it has post every other transfer window.

Absolutely. This section is still open and it was open though the summer as well. If we're going to do that. then there's no need for threads all over the place.

Except it hasn't (see above). Although it does get locked just before we renew it.

Yes, that's exactly what we do :rolleyes:

And so you know, often times we haven't much time to do everything we'd like so we either prioritise or do stuff when we have the time. And then, because, well, you know, we're human, we just plain forget. Apologies that the service is lacking and we're not being bang on the things you'd like.


Fuck. Me :D

What Lies Beneath said:
Would have to get this one done early if we go for it too many interested parties in Neto which could drive a bidding war and the club don’t entertain that. He’s keen on our project tho the agent might be a bastard to deal with to . Wolves will want north of 60m I love the player but maybe there’s better in the market if we look hard enough . But would be a marquee signing ✍🏿. We have a keen eye on a talent in La liga could be gettable in the summer and we are keeping an eye on him strongly cannot reveal tho yet. Raphina is another we are looking at but right now it’s just an intrest and I don’t think with the fee and age it goes against what we are doing atm .

Ange tho deffo wants a specialist winger who can isolate his defender in attacking transitions and offer abit of stardust comparable with Sonny .


Priority in order for summer right now :

IN
Wing forward
Deep lying midfielder
ST
Gk
LB Cover

OUT
Spence (not favoured)
Forster (need a system keeper)
Sess (not reliable )
Gil (not favoured
Tanguy (not favoured)
Lo celso (contract and injuries)
Pierre (wants to go and contract )
Reg (not favoured)
Rodon (not favoured)
Dier (gone)
Persic (gone)
Werner (if we don’t activate but think we will)
Solomon (might be able to generate funds)

I may have missed 1-2 but that’s how I’m seeing it right now obviously easier said then done but I think that’s the idea .
Hope we have our eye on a La Liga talent that can make the jump and that we're ready to support. Sadly we didn't do so hot on the last one (Gil :(). I wonder if we'll be trying to take advantage of Barca's situation. Liked Raphina when we were linked in the Richarlison window but I'm glad he's the Brazilian we got that season.

Interesting to me that ST seems ahead of LB and GK cover, unless that list is in no particular order. Makes me sad that Solomon has had only such limited time and really was an opportunistic buy.

First of all huge thanks to you, the mods and ITKs for everything you put into this place.

It is a pity we lost the Summer window scouting thread, as from my perspective it allows more freedom for discussion, compared to being shit scared of posting in this ITK thread. The scouting thread opens up insights on new players that we could be looking at, not just the specific names that ITK have mentioned.

Can we make space in the forum for both the wider scouting discussion and this tighter-controlled ITK thread?

Maybe we could have a general scouting thread in here for random (not Twitter random) links and chat?
I think I know someone who would love to run that section to keep it out of your hair... @THFCSPURS19 ! 😁

I think Solomon is a really good player but last season at Fulham and this season with us he seems to spend more time in the physio room than the training ground. Shame but if Spurs can get a decent offer for him I can see the logic in selling him.

Well I hope you've learned your lesson now! Instantaneous and impeccable customer service is all we ask for.

WLB on Neto last night
Update : club are showing keen interest about this deal in the summer and are becoming more encouraged . Have to move early on it when season closes work will start now . But Neto is slowly becoming a no 1 target currently .

In the past 2 windows Williams had options to leave will be difficult to get him out of Spain at this moment. He’s young and settled . I still cannot name the la liga player we like but he’s up there with Neto for no 1 options no one has mentioned him yet .
