    I quite like tryingto discipher these cryptic clues, so here's my guess for the latest one.


    Quote:

    I once saw Joe Dolce sing, early doors.

    Joe Dolce is an American singer born in Ohio and his most famous song is the humorous Italian based song "Shuddappa your face".
    This seems pretty easy to me. American singer + Italian based song = Rossi.
    I don't get the early doors part, could be just that he reckons it's a close thing.

    Alternatively it could be what Cudicini is telling Luka to do!!!!!

    The telling clue is actually the lyrics of the song.

    'Allo

    Ready?
    Uno
    Duo
    Tre

    When I was a boy
    Just abouth the eightth-a grade

    Mama used to say: "Don't stay out-a late
    With the bad-a boys
    Always shoot-a pool

    Giuseppe going to flunk-a school!"
    Boy
    It make-a me sick
    All the t'ing I gotta do

    I can't-a get-a no kicks
    Always got to follow rules

    Boy
    It make-a me sick
    Just to make-a lousy bucks

    Got to feel-a like a fool

    And-a mama used to say all-a time:
    What's-a matter you? Hey! Gotta no respect

    What-a you t'ink you do? Why you look-a so sad?
    It's-a not so bad
    It's-a nice-a place

    Ah

    Big accordion solo!
    Ah ! Play dat again! Really nice
    Really nice!
    Soon-a come-a day
    Gonna be a big-a star
    [ Lyrics from: ]
    Den I make-a T.V. shows and-a movies

    Get-a myself a new car
    But still I be myself

    I don't want-a to change a t'ing

    Still a-dance and a-sing

    [ t'ing about-a mama
    She used to say:

    Most of the papers are pointing to Rossi joining Juve and I can't remember a single one pointing to him joining Spurs. Of course if Rossi does go to Juve, the ITKs can simply brush it off as "We were close" or something like that. Remember they never actually revealed how far into the deal we are (if we are in it in the first place).

    It's cryptic ITK, so probably not even slightly.

    I got it.


    Joe Dolce was born in Ohio. The majority of people from Ohio have German ancestry (28.9% to be exact) making them German American. Babe Ruth was German American. His nickname was "Bambino". Bambino means "little boy" in Italian. It is also a nickname for the Fiat 500. 500, Five Hundred, is a card game devised in America. The game is an extension of Euchre which also incorporates the basic principles of Bridge. Bill Gates is known to play Bridge. Bill Gates was born in Seattle. So was Grunge. Grunge musicians wear plaid, which is similar to tartan. Kilts are made with tartan patterns. Kilts are associated with Scotland.


    We're signing Charlie Ada... oh....

    Its the same old from Tottenham isnt it. I would not be even slightly suprised if we end up with the same strike force(if you can call them a force!) as last season.

    Can we confine this 'ITK' to the realms of WUM now? His attempt at trying to save face is laughable!!

    Of course it was... We didn't go for Rossi and he didn't want to appear wrong so he pulled Mata out of his ass. That being said, I still will believe this guy. I'm starting to refresh the ITK thread like every 5 minutes, really frustrated we haven't done anything yet.

    Let's see...

    Awful cryptics? Blue and yellow? => Crap
    Something big is happening? Good week? Good Friday? Things will start rolling once the lads come back from SA? => Nothing happened.
    Various ITK sounding confident on Vucinic? => Went to Juve.
    Rossi? => Looks like we didn't even put a bid in.
    Real Madrid? Canales? => Canales just went to Valencia FFS.

    It's not that I don't want to believe them...
