Surely we can't spend all this money without someone big (Eriksen) being off
Who in their right mind would want to leave us atm? Looking from the outside as a non fan, we are fucking awesome.... take the oil money away and we would of won the prem once in the last 5 years. We do shit properly. This is our time!!

Bit of a reach. Good soldier. There was a famous last stand at the Alamo. Close to olmo. Or maybe it's just the late night drinks talking.

Max Kruse from Fenerbahce

With the goodbye soldier part of Mad Max quote being his teammate Soldado (who has put in a word for us)
Although doubting this myself, as only just joined Fenerbahce

Cheers Hercs and great positivity on GLC ...........



..I think we would have good track with GLC, Ndombele and GLC have same agent Pini Zahavi, DL's on speed dial1 with him atm im sure :)
We know Daniel isn't a huge fan of agents, but apparently will deal with them if they actually do a decent job not just holding on for a cut, Pini maybe a big part in pushing these players towards the club hence why levy is ok with the agents fees?

Having slept on the cryptic I've got a new explanation for the middle part of the clue:

Dee has said = Diaz

well, ain't we a pair, Raggedy Man - Raggedy man can refer to Voodoo. Voodoo is the main religion in Haiti which is on the same island as the Dominican Republic. Mariano Diaz has played for the Dominican Republic.

Annoyed, he tossed it = Mad Rid

Great news from Hercules about GLC. If we're close it sounds like it will get done. It's going to be a very good window if we end up with Ndombele, GLC, Sessegnon , an upgrade at right back and a couple of youngsters.

Lots of Italians emigrated to Argentina early last century, lots of Italian names there (ie Pochettino)

I think Poch meant that some fan favourites would be moved, and that would be painful to some of us.
Yeah I get that but the quality of players we are being linked with will soften the blow. It’s not like Berba leaving and being replaced by a kid on loan.

"Dee has said well, ain't we a pair, Raggedy Man. Annoyed, he tossed it."
Dani Olmo and Dani Ceballos
Rushing out this morning, but I'm now convinced that you're right on Dani Olmo.

For starters, if you contract 'Dee has said' to 'Dee's said', you get DZ (i.e. Dinamo Zagreb).

Also, if you rearrange seven of the letters in Dani Olmo, you get 'in a mood' (i.e. annoyed).

What I can't do yet is work out what to do with the extra 'l' or 'he tossed it', but we're definitely getting close...

With this big uptick of rumors in the last few days it’s starting to look much more like the “painful rebuild” that Pochettino continually referenced. Though it won’t be that painful if we get our current targets!

My guess is if these rumors aren’t Pooh poohed we’ll soon start hearing rumors about the surprising outs JJ referenced early in the summer. Not even about money, but squad places too.
I think you are right, it is the outgoings that will be painful and I think he meant that across the board, painful to us to him and to players who may not want to go. We may be surprised at a couple of them.

Dunno about the source of these D.Olmo rumours.

As for cryptic stuff, I have done cryptic crosswords for almost fifty years, this latest one is very oblique as usual

All I can get from it is the bit about 'tossed it' and I am coming up 'let it go' = Athletico (not frozen)
But then I'm probably thinking too deep.

Logically this goes without saying so think about it before losing your shit.

Would be extremely pleased with Ndombele, Lo Celso, Sess Twins and possibly a New RB. That's all we need for now, assuming CE and Toby stay. If Toby leaves we will need a new CB but that's it.

Don't think its very smart to bring in 6/7 new players in one window, rather 3/4 over 2 windows so they have time to bed into the squad properly. This excludes youth prospects.

I'm fine with us not signing a 3rd choice goalkeeper, a CB (if toby is seeing out his contract) and a backup ST. Main issue for me now is RB, especially if trippier is going. CAM and a backup for whoever plays there is also very important.

5 transfers (plus jack clarke and steven sessegnon back on loan) doesnt sound too unreasonable, does it?
