Morning all.​
Here's your weekend thread.​
Yesterday's thread was a bit 'bollocksey' really. It ended up being taken over by wishlisting, guesses over who we might try to sign next, player abilities and formation chat. Most of that shit belongs in the players threads, but we suffered it because of your fragile mental states.​
But now it's time to get this thread back on track. So no wishlists, no we need a player who can do this or that and no formation chat. Just the ITK please. I have the keys.​
Today's word of the day: Announcements​

You're up early A&C. Did the missus kick you out of bed?

Did Grey Fox ever say who 'the other one' was or was that what caused the wishlisting?

Bollocksey announcements? Was not a positive day. I like the word tetchiness.

First !!! Boom!
Boom... Is that the sound of a ban stick hitting your ass! This is not the bbc comments section.

Gutted about yesterday but every faith in Baldini. We seem more organised in our approach this year and think we have others identified. Willian only became a viable option when he was made available so in that respect do we go back to plan A or just wishful thinking.

Announcements eh?!
Well, thats Willian to Chelsea and Bale to Madrid in my book. Urgh...
Hoping for more positive news, but yesterday was crap.

Anyway, morning all, fingers and toes and all other body parts crossed.

Well said A & C. Let's move on and get this thread back on track. Keep up the good work ITKers.
Some people need to realise it's not DONE till it's on the OS.

My Birthday and was all set earlier this week for Willian being announced but looks like it'll be at Chelsea and Bale announced at RM too. Great start to a birthday!

On a serious note, let's hope we get Lamela done ASAP before anyone else wants to mock us and take him from under our noses!

JJ has said RM haven't offered what we've asked. Until they do I don't believe the one who's name cannot be spoken will be going anywhere. DL ain't nobodies bitch certainly not after getting screwed over in the past.

Please can we just get Lamela sorted and announced, it'll be the only thing to help me get over the way Willian fucked us over. Lamela is the better player and just what we need. Going to the lane tomorrow, east upper block G, there ready to cheer our boys on for 90 minutes. COYS.

Interesting comment with regards to Eriksen, "he's ours to say no to". Would have thought for the money he would potentially cost based on being in the last year of his contract, he's exactly the sort of player we would take a punt on.
Personally I rate him, could potentially become that number 10 we are looking for.. Probably not for a hell of a lot more than what we paid for Chadli either.

The ITK in a previous window was that AVB didn't rate Eriksen, and that it was Sherwood who was pushing him.

I don't think we need another CM like Eriksen. He's not as good as Dembele and I don't think there's much in it between him and Siggy.

We really need a creative left inside forward, as close to Willian in style as possible.
