Ahhhh. Silence is Golden!

I wonder if we can keep this thread completely clean until there is some NEW ITK??

So, Atlanta Yid's ITK last night, presumably he is referring to Capoue as well?

JJestset implies it's not quite done yet. I for one hope it gets done. This transfer excites me. I hope it means THudd and Parker are on their way out, and then Carroll finds a good loan opportunity somewhere.

Not sure if Livemore could stay after this signing as well.

If Thudd & Parker both leave then surely Carroll stays.

Another fucking cryptic!!!!
Yes and it's quite simple.

New thread = anagram of thread = red hat

Hat = cap; Red = rouge

Cap rouge = Capoue + RG

Capoue we know about, but we're also getting an RG i.e. an Argie i.e. Lamela

Capoue and Lamela - you read it here first (but only because I just made it all up).

Didn't we get ITK suggesting Livermore may stay, being converted to CD?
Regarding Capoue, the direct quotes from Toulouse's chairman give it some real credibility, and his signing would suggest the imminent departures for Parker and Hudd.

bit worried about the ITK we been getting lately, Capoue, some defender, still looking at forwards, bit concerned we might not have enough room in the squad for Clark Carlisle :unsure:

I believe previous ITK info we have received on here has said AVB wants to keep Parker for another season (i assume as cover for Sandro) and wants to keep Livermore and convert him into some sort of ball playing CB, if Capoue comes in I think either Huddlestone or Carroll will be out the door, personally I think it should be Carroll so he can get quality game time (not an odd 10 appearances from the bench) as well as the fact Huddlestone can be a useful weapon to have in the squad :)

It was LLM that said it on Tuesday mate:

"I see you kind people picked up on my comments from the other side. Just to further elaborate. ...​
dawson was opinion based so disregard it for now.​
livermore will be used as a centre back certainly converted to one. I have been banging on about this for ages,he reminds me of ledley when he broke into the first team. Jake can become a cracking centre back but he has to learn quickly. This positional change has been mooted since harry was there.​
Kaboul is still injured his knee swells, it is not severe but 100% he is not. He can train but not everyday (exactly like ledley) its not permanent so do not panic.​
Sandro and kaboul have an outside chance for palace but its a 100-1 shot so whisper it quietly. :)"​

Caulker already gone and Capoue coming in probably means that both Parker and Thudd will be off. I wouldn't bet my house on Bale staying this season.

A bit sad to see so many British players potentially gone, even if it in most cases are for perfectly sound reasons.

By very definition it's not quite done yet. From what I've read elsewhere there are a few payment terms to sort, final agreements to do with the player and also the medical. I'm genuinely hopeful though.

We'll be getting a younger, better(?) model than Parker for what would equate to the same or less in initial outlay and wages over the course of his Spurs career. In effect it will not cost us anything extra - just a swap. He will also have a value at the end of his contract, so it's a win situation there.

It also brings the question as to whether Sandro will be quite ready yet. He can be eased back into the team as opposed to 90 minutes every game.

I'd like to see Hudd and Parker leave - not necessarily because they are poor players per se, but to indicate the start of this bright new dawn.

I agree. I've always liked that we still have a strong English presence in the side. ITK on incomings and outgoings suggest this will no longer be the case.

I suppose if it brings success, then many will argue that it doesn't really matter, and in a way I think that is right. But I've always slagged off the scum for having hardly any English players, it could be that their starting lineup in their first game will have a similar number to ours.
