Buongiorno everyone. We actually had some ITK yesterday. Ish. Some players were told they were staying, some were told they were leaving. Meh.

The wife was complaining hesterday because she forgot her sister's birthday. "I used to have the memory of an elephant," she said. "What's happened?"

"Your body's taken over the responsibility," I replied.

The first two pieces of ITK came from Pottle..........
POTL said:
All players have been told in individual meetings in Barbados if they are to be kept/loaned/available for transfer.
And.........
POTL on AVB - He's not going.
Interesting, but whowesigning?
Then JJ.......
JJetset said:
SP 'may' leave btw.......

Asked if QPR bound....

QPR are the obvious one just not sure he wants to go down a division
Interesting, but whowesigning?

So overall, a bit of an uninspiring day.

I'm hoping at least some of you know Billy Joel's 1983 hit 'An Innocent Man'......Here's A&C's take on it

A GULLIBLE MAN

Some people stay far away from SC
If there's a chance of reading ITK
They see a post in the Read Only
Smile and click on it anyway
Some people believe everything that they read
Then get angry for having been a fool
They don't sprinkle their salt on anything
So nobody tells them a lie

We know you're only protecting yourself
We know you think we'll sign somebody else
Someone from Barca
Or even Brazil
Cos you just want the thrill
You've been denying you could ever feel

I'm not above posting anything
To restore your faith if I can
Some people crack and abuse ITK
Before they ever get to know the truth
I'm only willing to hear you cry
Because I am an gullible man
I aaaaaaaaaam a gullible man
Oh yes I am

Some people say they will never believe
Another promise they read on this site
Because they only remember too well
They heard somebody tell them before

Some people sleep all alone every night
Instead of taking an iPad to bed
Some people find that it's easier to hate
Than to wait for info anymore

I know you don't want to hear what they say
I know you're gonna keep turning away
But I've been there and if I can survive
We can help SC thrive
I'm not above reading rumours again
I'm not above ITK for a while
If I don't like it then i'll understand

Some people run from rumours every night
Some people figure one day it'll be right
Although they post info when they choose
The accused is an gullible man
I aaaaaaaaaaam a gullible man
Oh yes I am
A gullible man, oh yes I aaaaaam
woah-oh-oh-oh

Our last donation drive covered us for almost a month, thankee kindly. But SC is an around the year gig.

Have you donated to SC? We'll be holding people up by the ankles and shaking them periodically through the day. Nows the time to pay for the unchecked spam yesterday. I love it when a plan comes together.

Laters.

Cheers a&c.

So are we waiting to get rid of players before we buy. Where's baldini, has he signed yet? Or is everyone on holiday?

Hi all.
Had a bad SPURS dream last night. Man U bought Ronaldo and RM used the money to buy BALE at a sum we could not refused & we bought G.BARRY & NANI :cry: Actually, its not a dream but a nightmare!!!

Hoping for better news...

POTL suggests an overhaul of the squad. Shouldn't that include actually bringing new players in?? What is the Grand Plan?

How do you come to that conclusion ? POTL is just saying those that are not required on the journey have been told. That happens at every club at the end of every season. Nothing out of the ordinary at all.

Information suggests that he is already back

...no doubt working on a plan to sell BAE to Madrid and make them think the paperworks says BALE :sneaky:

Actually Levy being on holiday was refuted.
Squad overhaul eh... Well yes players do need to leave first before we can bring in, that has started at least.

Sure, but would be nice to have an early signing. Some of our best recent ones - Modric, Berbatov, Vertonghen - have been done in the close- rather than transfer season, and City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool are already active in the market, it seems. I highly appreciate the way our club is run, but I do feel that slow starts largely due to our way of delaying transfers have cost us more than it has gained us financially in recent seasons.

I just saw a headline saying we're in for Barry.
Not one I'd be looking at note really.

That info saying the Parker may be sold is like music to my ears.
Show some respect. He was out best player in redknapps last season in a team that included Modric, VdV, Bale and an inform Ade, then spent 6 months of this season injured.

I agree with you that Parker was good in HR's last season 100%. Although I do believe his role was a lot simpler playing with Modric and VDV.

But last year was bloody embarrassing in my opinion and we can easily upgrade on him. Doesn't suit the way AVB plays at all.

Sorry if that pisses you off.
