If you can get the post I'll stick it in the RO, although off the top of my head I can't remember what Jasper's track record is like.
He's Danish I believe. Works in football. Gets some decent info but a bit erratic. Decent bloke though.

Maybe there's clamp down at HQ and General Levy has the stormtroopers lurking around every corner waiting to pounce at the slightest bum squeek pertaining to to ITK!!!!!
Harry left and so I doubt as much is being leaked.

Paulinho 'will' happen, paraphrase

Edit, there's a litte argument with a user called mentiar in the paulinho thread, which came in the main transfer thread. Quite hard to follow SO with all the fighting right now
It's a nightmare. They've adopted a 'one thread to rule them all' approach, so every post on every player is now somewhere in the 120+page thread. I'm comforted by last night's 'exclusive' in the Torygraph, which seems very confident:

Paulinho is likely to link up with countryman Sandro, when fit, and Moussa Dembele in a reshaped midfield which could allow Villas-Boas to move towards his more favoured 4-3-3 formation.
Paulinho’s arrival might enable Spurs to finally sell Tom Huddlestone, and it could also lead to the departure of Scott Parker.

I'm sure a Jasper has made the RO before, is that the Jasper, or just a random Jasper?

If there was a 'how the mighty are fallen' thread, I'd put this in: Ryan Babel has joined the Turkish First Division club Erstligisten Kasimpasa. Doesn't seem that long ago since we were linked with him. He's only 26, not like he's at the end of his career.

Morning troops.

Jasper's news seems good. That fact that several papers have picked up on this, and ran with the story is good news too, I think. Unless their sources are the ITK threads...

Darvos' legs have gone and his poor use of the ball makes him unsuited to our new style. I really don't think he justifies his wages any more

In the absence of Sandro, a trio of Paulinho, Dembele and Holtby (say) is amply strong enough defensively.
I'm not sure. In a midfield 3 all of them could chip in on the defensive side I suppose, but you still need an anchor IMO. Dembele would be wasted in the anchor role.

why would babel go in a thread entitled 'how the mighty are have fallen' ?

more like, "another shite ex-liverpool player drops through the leagues".... Mighty crap maybe...

Agree completely. I really hope we get a good backup for sandro this window. Losing him really fucked us last season.

It looks like there is some stuff going down anyway so I'm sure he'll be fine ;)

G'waan Baldini get them Brasilians signed up!
I have to be honest, I just wanted to get a breakfast cereal related joke in somewhere as his username is Kelloggs! :LOL:

Morning all. Great start daughter decided to stub her toe at 7 so been sitting at the hospital whilst she has her toenail removed. Happy weekend!!!

Anyway surely Brazil are not going to let any player leave the squad for a medical until after the confederation has finished? Therefore we wouldn't be announcing anything till July?

keep all future weekends free - get her feet cut off to avoid more wasted time.

medicals can be done on location if needs be.

I did suggest that to the surgeon..... He made a valid point that if he did I would prob end up having to push her or carry her around forever. I think selling them is the way forward.

Yeah but this is a spurs transfer saga. You know the Brazil coaching squad wouldnt allow it. Far too easy.
