Haven’t heard anything on Giroud and I am inclined to believe a certain man leaked this to force Milan’s hand (goes on all the time). That’s opinion not ITK. Based on the fact Chelsea have refused to deal with Levy in the past and why on earth would they strengthen us (a top 4 rival)?!

Wow! Signed Gedson, Steven and now likely KP and made GLC permanent transfer... And our Daniel has given up on 4th.

He's definitely backing JM
Levy always tends to back managers when they're in the shit but never when they're on top. 'Arry got Palacios, Keane, Defoe and Chimbonda in a January when we were up to our neck in shit, only to receive Nelson and Saha on loan when we were supposedly safe in 4th.

Same way Poch got fuck all when we could've pushed for a title, yet Jose gets multiple players when we're in danger of missing 4th. This phenomenon goes way back: we also spent a shedload pushing for top 4 in Jol's last season.

I know there are loads of caveats and complications, but Levy definitely seems far more willing to open the cheque book when we're chasing financial targets (top 4) than actual trophies.

Thanks Trix! Could be a big day with SB too, fingers crossed
Oh we won’t announce piatek till next Monday after everyone has had a go at leaking the pics and everything else lol.

but great news and promising too. Didn’t we have itk saying jose wanted all signings in by Wednesday? I’m hoping that’s coz he will throw them in against city if so. No pressure boys lol. Hopefully will lift the team and we get a reaction now With some new faces as well.

Knowing Levy? You mean the chairman who’s just bought 3 players with more to come which is more than any other club this window?

Not only that - its looks like JM may get the players within the deadline he outlined (according to ITK - players wanted in by Wednesday)
