    Come on, I know you all want it. Let's gather all the flim flam ITK in one thread. :p
    Starting out with our favorite - Trix!

    Who: Trix
    When: Pinch and a Punch, first of the month
    Where: SC


    Good morning and a happy new year to all.

    We are not actively looking to move anyone(first team regulars) on this window. It's widely known that a couple of players are not fully content with life at Spurs for one reason or another, that said they are all very much still pulling in the same direction as things stand. That is why barring what we consider to be vastly OTT offers allowing us to overall squad strengthen, nothing at all will be entertained. If that should happen and we do sell, we will buy!

    As far as incomings are concerned, I'm still hearing Barkley is not likely to happen(for reasons I have already posted) although we are still keen on him as a player. CP not willing to let Zaha go now so would take one of those OTT bids mentioned earlier to get them talking(not likely unless someone goes). Richarliason is another we have been watching very closely, but he is splitting opinion somewhat, and we'd like to see a bit more of him before throwing our eggs into this basket. Of our "made public" targets the one I could see happening this window one way or another is Sess. We have courted him now for two years, and he is keen, but he knows/we know/his dad knows that him playing games for Fulham has been far more beneficial to the lad than moving to us at a previous time. Think this could well be a Dele type deal with him coming in the Summer personally. Anyone hoping for an out of the blue ready made superstar coming from the continent to propel us to new heights is going to be very disappointed.

    So all in all we want players in but we won't be buying just to get our numbers up barring injury or stupid offers for players that are not seen as "long term must keeps" it will be quiet. That doesn't mean though we won't be trying, it just means it is unlikely because January is very difficult. We have a list of players we think could improve us but just because they are not available now, it doesn't mean we will get someone that is, just to bulk the squad. We will wait!!

    Oh I also asked about loanee's returning and he said as far as he was aware, we had no plans to recall anyone.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I have just received some snippets information. Poch wants RB badly, against any ‘wait until summer Ross’. He has waited until January, and reason he did not go chavs. If we are saying same again he WILL sign for chavs now.

    Goons favourites for Zaha in summer, if we don’t firm up agreement with Parish for then. He will not desert them in January, unless Palace pushes him; which they won’t. We roostered up in the summer when we had our chance. He has a clause to be allowed to talk to top clubs of fee is in excess of ******million. He would decide what he wants to do. His gang feel we did not treat talks with the respect and seriousness, as would be expected, and if the other lot came in he would likely go there.

    RS, we have verbal agreement in place for summer. We want to deal now, and take him, with his brother staying until summer. Fulham want him (RS) to stay and push for possible play-offs. We want him (if we agree) to train 60-70% of the time with us if we agree such deals. Sess has already met Poch in summer, more than once.

    Danny Rose feeling loved, and made up. Not a certainty he will go. May change if we fall off out of Top 4. Dier is ambitious, and do not be so confident we would not ‘consider’ if very good offer came in. Regarding Toby, it is not really about the money, as indications were in summer his team had all but agreed our offer. He wants to win trophies, and not wait 2 years to realise that. New stadium means nothing.

    We have first option on Kluivert of Ajax, and couple more players interest us in Holland, with another also at Ajax.

    We have 400% not bid for Malcom, and personally, from the vibes I am hearing, he is not our first choice. Poch has good relationships with peeps of Mahrez, and they have been pushing him in our direction. Doubt we will deal at fees it is believed Leicester would want.

    Trippier won’t go in January, but possible in summer. KWP wants a loan, Poch wants him to stay, learn and fight. He believes he is not getting fair chances, and one of best trainers, always impressing. We have hinted we want to revisit his recent contract with a new one. He wants to wait and see.

    Marcus very happy, but may want a loan. Poch does not believe it would do him good. He has 2 years after this, with option on another year. Poch speaks to him a lot, and Marcus is bulking up, and desperate to convince to even earn a bench place. You can understand his enthusiasm, and impatience a bit. He would not be human otherwise. He is very ambitious, and convinced in his own ability, without being roostery.

    GKN will go on loan, or sold. VJ is done here. Sissoko going nowhere. He has impressed everybody with his turn around.

    Back Poch is my advice!

    Who: Hercules
    When: 2nd January 2018
    Where: Spurs Community


    Want to add, something I just realised I did not put in my post. I am sure, and believe that is where Poch is going with ‘get deals agreed quick...’

    We WILL be spending big, not in the regions of Emirates Marketing Project and chavs. We have eyes on some key big targets, if they can be done. Again; whilst I 99.99% do not believe this one will happen. RM are talking to us about Bale, and Modric wants to come back. I highly doubt either will happen, but more RM pushing, especially Bale.

    We want to make a statement to ALL on moving into our stadium, along with sponsors etc. And on that note, we are prrry covered with big parties tendering their offers, along with a certain shirt sponsor. NFL especially is prepared to throw money at us, beyond 2 games, which in turn has got US sponsors falling over themselves. Asian market wants to join sponsorships as well.

    Poch wants to be on par with scoucers in the forward alternative department, and a priority of his. I personally doubt Toby will be sold in summer, unless a crazy bid from a certain popular club is received. If-big if! He is sold, we will bring someone in from overseas, as UK market has inflated market for average players, much less ones we would want, like Mawson.

    Please folks, stop using with no knowledge our financial restrictions, due to new stadium. COYS

    So two ITKs that basically say absolutely nothing (we won't buy/sell, but if we do we will buy/sell) , and at the same time totally contradicts one another. They really are in the know.

    Yes, but some good insights on Rose, Toby, and Marcus, if true, as well as potential cash inflows from sponsorships.

    I tend to look at it as a bit of fun, and something to instigate a bit of discussion. Nothing more.

    That's a bit shallow ... for me it means contract negotiations are going on with lots of shredding of paper and revolving doors .

    I think the nature of the games and how quickly it changes due to so many moving parts means even if you are in ITK things change and make you look a liar.

    My mates brother is Mark Nobles agent and we get loads of inside football stuff but there are always last minute changes.

    Whilst I feel tinkled that RB fell through, as we will not deal until summer, for reasons will not share. Rest assured that there is a player all but tied up in similar position, that is likely to cost a good few bob, for summer transfer.

    I am told that if we had a choice, everyone would opt for this player. No hints as do not want it to go viral. We are very keen on someone from Watford. No hard guesses there, but summer. Let’s wait before we start shooting our Daniel.

    ----

    Who is RB? I fudging hate name abbreviations with a passion.

    Edit - Ross Barkley, of course. :p

    Rob Brydon. Just a shame that perpetual lack of Ronnie Corbett impressions about the training ground looks set to continue. ITK.

    I sort of miss some of the old ITK stuff. I remember a post on here about someone in touch with the Feyenord tea lady, who was ITK and who said Marc Von Bommel was about to sign for us. Now THAT was quality ITK! Utter nonsense of course, but just what one wants to amuse oneself during a slow afternoon's "work." :rolleyes:

    I fear that the revelations couple of years back where one of the ITKs came out and said it was all just a wind up and how he stitched his stories together made us doubt everyone and thereby killed some of the hilarious ITK attempts we used to see. Alas....

    There's some more "ITK" from Hertiyid, but it's just a re-hash of what's been in the media over the past few days, so I refuse to post it. :p
