All I'm saying is, either it has happened and we are waiting for an announcement (and who bothers with making a cryptic about when an announcement will happen) OR it hasn't actually happened yet, in which case who can say "it will happen in 7 days, 3 hours and one second of dwarf sex".

goes back to hide in a corner and only posting when either the next (IF) cryptic pops up, or the next piece of ITK comes up. least it allows me to read the info properly to then respond. hopefully the OVER £100m means we will spend nearer the original ITK of £150m(y)

ITK said £100k investment. That means net spend to me. So Poch gets £100k plus sales (subject to wages etc biting into the budget). If Toby is off and a few others we may have £200m to dabble with.

£100k eh? Sounds like Levy’s dream! He will be raiding county level football clubs at that rate.

Goal posts moved already. Check the decimal places Poch. That sneaky Mr Levy used his sharpest pencil so you could barely see it.

Who was the last big player we signed for £100k, Martin Peters?

I agree. You were kindly explaining something simple to a simpleton who clearly doesn’t understand the basics.

Consider your good deed for the day completed.

I can't imagine Kane, Alli and Eriksen will go the world Cup not having their contracts announced. Seemed pretty unanimous that they were done so why not announce the buggers?

Because the Spurs PR team get off on annoying the people on this forum. Why else would they waste time announcing the letter O being put on the new stadium? o_O

Also yada yada about wanting maximum exposure and finalizing paperwork and promo videos and all those other boring things they do that take time.

Just in case we don't sign anyone, the above 3 will be our deadline day "signings".

They probably just want to maximize the positive press from the announcement. I wouldn't be surprised if it comes out at the same time as a stadium announcement, or news about the new kit, or sponsor

We have been told numerous times the two pieces of ITK don’t relate to the same player

Yes, I phrased myself badly. I meant that the same cryptic might be about the players AND when he'll sign. But I'm craptic at cryptics!! :(

hertyid: I don't know the exact terms of the MP/DL agreement around £100m+, so can't speak for whether that is net or gross, and whether it includes contract renegotiations or just transfer spending. But given we should expect £100m in player sales from Toby, Rose, Janssen, Sissoko, Llorente, Dembele etc (assuming they all go, this is not ITk), then you have to think it is £100m net. I also know we are very much in for De Ligt as a Toby replacement and he's not going to be cheap.

So let's assume it's £100m of additional investment, but this may include large pay increases for key players.

It's impossible in the world of ITK to absolutely pinpoint that a transfer will happen (with)in x number of days, so making a cryptic about that seems a waste of time at best.

True, unless it's been signed already and agreement made about when it will be announced!
