Being a Spurs fan, now I begin to worry whether all our new stars will bed-in in time.

Avb showed last season that he will most probably introduce players slowly. Verts didn't start against Newcastle 1st game and we all know what happened with Lloris. Plus holtby.

And you would be right to.

I trust Andre, he was careful, almost too careful bedding players in last year, he'll not do anything silly.

But...but...Coentrao can play LB, LW and DM!
if we quietly tell RM that Bale is signing a new contract but they can have first option on him next year (at >90m) if they sell us or loan us Coentrao now.

Totally forgot about Holtby. We pretty much have a brand new engine...exciting times:wideyed:

Has their been any ITK on Chiriches other than newspapers?
This player looks awesome - may turn out to be our best summer signing. Powerful, fast, can turn defence into attack, scores goals, can tackle, dribble and pass!

Edit: just read the home page story - his agent and national coach say his coming to us

Have I actually fallen asleep, and this is all some kind of cruel dream? Or does it really look like Spurs have/are on the brink of signing two players?!
Potentially, four good players in....and it's still only July?!

Has Levy finally loosened up, and found people he can trust in Andre and Franco?

I'm now scared to go to sleep, just in case this is a dream and sleeping is actually waking up!

No. Enfield made a good point earlier that none of our current ITK can possiblyy have Baldini as a source, and it may take a while until any ITK comes forward as a Baldini source. So if this was mostly his work (which is likely), it makes complete sense that it came out of Italy

Well fuck me.

At the moment it really is looking like 'lessons have been learned'. We got there in the end Daniel, you cheeky scamp.

Think I know why we haven't announced Soldado... it's not the cursed transfer banner, it's because we haven't got a stamp to finalize Chadli yet! It's been days Stoof, where are you?

Anyone care to give me a quick summary of events before I have my 4am poo and go back to bed?
There was ITk saying bale staying, then ITK saying we might sell then sod-all for hours until the Romanians decided to jump in and say we've signed Vlad the Impaler. Of course the Spanish weren't happy in being left-out and they stated we'll be signing Soldado tomorrow.

Thanks (y)

So it seems today is the day. Although I shan't be holding my breath. Excepting when I have my poo of course.

3:12am I don't think this is going to be announced for a couple of hours, cooome oonnnnnn :woot:
Easy JC, have some ice cream and chill, buddy, we got this (y)

I love the TW, so many people get tweaked, excited, depressed, menstrual over every single press report/ITK tidbit, it amuses the crap out of me, I love the banter! At the end of the day, it will be what it will be! Would I love some of the players we get linked to? Of course! I've been a Spurs fan since the day I was born, my whole family is Tottenham, my daughter is Tottenham, and she was born here in the States!

I'm looking forward to seeing Soldado, Bale, Chadli, Pauline all play for us next season. The EPL is going to be broadcast by NBC here for the first time, which is HUGE, and Bale is their poster boy in Time Square, so I really don't see him trotting off to Madrid in the near future. We'll get our shiny new striker, and maybe more. In the meantime I will continue to enjoy the paralysis through analysis that happens in this thread every day. Thanks to y'all for entertaining this old man (y)

Bale -well he is going to Madrid by ITKs, but he will sign a new deal with us by ITKs.
English media playing FM13 by linking with return of Modric & our bid for Suarez with Caulker swapped
Soldado - Signing today from Valencia media
No ITK on Chiriches but his agent, manager, league president everyone says deal is done for Spurs at 6.9m euros.
