    Who: Trix
    Where: SC
    When: Today

    At the very least this window there will be one CM/DM and one forward player coming in. It is seen as the bare minimum by those involved. Anything mote than that will be a bonus but two more at least is what I'm told, and that is from someone who would know.

    Ali Z was responding to this comment from trix in the Muzzi Ozcan thread.

    Trix: I'm worried what it means to those I thought we were keeping


    Ali Z: "Only one i heard they would entertain bids for was Fazio and that would have to be a very good bid, think it means Carters vickers will go on loan though."

    He also said later on...

    "Believe Kaboul and Chriches will be gone, interest in both, Kaboul is talking to a few clubs."

    Bit of a cryptic from rebrab on SC

    We are interested in a noble man, bright with glory. A male scottish coach could obstruct.

    should mention - etymology and a knowledge of scottish business would help here ;)


    *someone posted

    The name Robert is a Germanic given name, from Old High German Hrodebert "bright with glory"

    And Patrick means Noble Man, so it's Patrick Roberts...

    And that's the second part of the Cryptic. Male = Man. Citylink = Scottish coach company.

    Man City link may obstruct.




    Think the name connected to this info is Patrick Robert, but Man City are in for him (which would tie into the obstruct part of the above post)

    Seems this info (in bold) is tied into what we've come to learn about the Toby deal....

    Sky sports reporting that Southampton will consider legal action against Atletico if Alderweireld does not sign for them. They believe their contract is binding.

    Perhaps this is what JJ was eluding to earlier in the week.

    jasper on patrick roberts: Fulham is an interesting place if we are not talking about the player that shares the same name as our own. Done and dusted to Citeh we thought, well that may not be the case. High possibilities but not a certainty. Obvious who it is if you know who the fuss is about down there and only 18. Same surname as one of our icons.
    sorry if posted

    Who: The Goat
    When: 6th July (received 5th July)
    Where: SC

    The Goat has heard that we are preparing for Toby Alderweireld to come to the training ground on Tuesday.

    This came to The Goat's source before the legal shenanigans broke so we do not know if that will change things.

    ome JJ bits.

    @daveyshambles 9h9 hours ago
    @jetsetyid are we interested in Clasie at all and if not why not?

    ‏@jetsetyid 17m17 minutes ago
    @daveyshambles He wont get us top 4 in England.He's a good player but not what we need.



    @paddyj2 17m17 minutes ago
    @jetsetyid are you excited by our potential signing JJ? Do you think if we secure them, it'll be enough to step up?

    @jetsetyid
    @paddyj2 great team players and all suit Pochs style of football.no top superstars but still quality as we are building a team.

    @jetsetyid Any truth in Ade to Villa?


    The original JJetset ‏@jetsetyid 4s5 seconds ago
    @eeeikill yes there is actually & has been for a while however Adebayor likes living in London too much & getting paid wads still by City


    Yidforlife19 ‏@THFCSPURS19 2m2 minutes ago
    @jetsetyid @eeeikill If he's (Adebayor) somehow still here after the Summer, do you think Poch will completely exclude him from the official PL squad?

    The original JJetset ‏@jetsetyid 2m2 minutes ago
    @THFCSPURS19 @eeeikill not for Twitter but you can join the dots on that one

    Jasper on SO re McCarthy and targets

    McCarthy not happening as far as I am aware. Ade be difficult to Villa for stupendous financial reasons, as well as location. The Benteke inquiry no go. 2 at least will be from Europe, and do not discount another Belgium if a deal can be done. Visa outcome will determine if it is worth pursuing a South American young 20 year old I think but not sure. My opinion shared as always.

    When: June 7th/8th


    So in brief; a summary of the JJ Twitter sesh:

    JJ is the source of the cabbage ITK, and he said we will find out the answer at the close of the window-which looking at it pessimistically probably means that if thy relate to incomings they are long shots.

    Interest in Kramer, but he feels it's unlikely-possibly tying in with the above.

    As it stands, no to Clasie.

    No to Cabaye.

    Focus on building a team that functions as Poch wants, with signing players with potential to develop into top bracket players, rather than signing the finished big name player. 2 players we are targeting have 'potential to be a bums off seat player' Edit: @ilikeost has indicated that JJ has said we are looking at leagues other than the PL in this regard.

    There has been lots of interest in Adebayor, mostly from QPR and now Villa- but because of his earnings and wanting to stay in London he is pretty much refusing to leave. JJ hints that Poch will freeze him out if he stays.

    Signing a striker not dependent on RS or Ade leaving

    Definitely expecting to sign DM and a forward.

    Didnt confirm or deny interest in Suarez or McCarthy when they were mentioned.

    Further update:

    Jasper just posted this on SO:

    Those of you concerned about our policy in the transfer market need not worry. The financing is unique and as good as paying for itself by virtue of intricate sponsorships, naming rights and branding based a lot on the franchise models adapted in the USA. We will NOT become a franchise but sponsors etc are queing by tender I think. Corporate facilities will be out of this world. Watch the roof design guys

    Trix on Coys re Adebayor and Lacazette.

    "Tim wants Ade."

    "Financials is one thing, Ade just generally being difficult is another. Might be easier once his stooges have been shifted though. Well if he gets a golden handshake that is. Not out of the question but with everything Ade it's far from straight forward."


    Someone then blamed Ade on Harry to which trix replied with:

    "He's not I am a big supporter of Levy and think he gets far too much grief on the whole, but Ade is down to him imo. Saw the chance of getting a Top drawer striker for very little transfer fee and didn't do the due diligence regarding everything else. I actually think Levy has learned a huge lesson from last season, thoigh, which we are beginning to benefit from this window."

    on lacazette:

    "No chance he is moving this window."

    Walker going nowhere. Pooch (not typo) likes him.

    Trippier will be ahead as Walks not 100%. Surprised if that changes.

    DM sorted. Just a matter of time as with striker. Those are kind of close. 2nd striker may be near end of window. 2nd meaning new signing or loan to buy. McCarthy is too much money with high risk fitness wise. If we went for him would imho mean that others failed. Two oversea deals being worked on, even back up ones. All huge exciting potential. The overseas is the ones I refer to at the beginning.

    Grey Fox

    My source was a bit busy yesterday!, but just had a long conversation with him.

    There is great excitement around the club both on and off the pitch, Poch is happy with signings and targets and our our attempts to get rid of the discontents, real team building exercise going on with existing squad and the targets. Mitchell has a lot to do with this.
    Agents and clubs have been informed about those he wants out, Kaboul, Adebayor and Lennon will be let go at a loss if necessary. At least 3 clubs have enquired about Townsend including Newcastle and 3 Spanish clubs have asked about Soldado, but Poch likes Bobby and would keep if he had to.

    Some youngsters will be loaned out, but not Pritchard.

    I understand that we have three Dms lined up (discussions with all 3 have taken place) I asked about MS and if the Toby purchase has ruined any chance of him and he laughed, adding they have been pissed off with us since Glen , but the money is on the table and if Man United don't act by the weekend we still have a chance.

    We still want a striker and wideman and he hinted one of those might be a late stellar signing, but would need the big fish to get out of the pond.

    As regards the stadium he thinks once we get the go ahead from Haringey naming rights would be announced a few weeks later, hopefully before the end of the year.

    More from what I was just told, is his agents are pro-active and 'if' there was a remote possibility based upon what QPR want the cost would be in region of 9-10m based upon appearances, success, goals scored etc, that is the package it would rise. From a personal point of view I can't see it but that is my own opinion. Lloriente: We have been speaking to his people, but that is typical Daniel not wanting to miss out if we are left empty handed. They may be Plan *** but not Plan A, B or C.

    If Poch had his way Soldado would stay and Ade goes is what I heard. Toby not the DM solution. Chiriches' agents given permission to talk to clubs which they are. Ade won't feature at all, but we knew that.
