    There has been a new cryptic from our friend POTL! He has posted the word 'sunflower'?? I know he is full of crap, but what would your guess be on who he is on about?

    Probably "Yellow" again I'd imagine.



    Although, playing the "cryptic" game, maybe we're selling Rafa . . . now how did I come to that conclusion? (answer found below)







































    Solution: "Sunflowers" is the most famous painting by Dutch artist "Van" Gogh (pronounced "Go")


    Dutchman "Van" der Vaart to Go (Gogh) . . . :)

    One of the regions of the world most commonly associated with Sunflowers is Tuscany.

    [​IMG]

    So if he's talking about a player from a Tuscan club. The biggest clubs in the region are...

    Fiorentina - Jojo :eek:16: or Montilivo (pass)
    Siena - Brkic - Doesn't make sense to buy him now.
    Empoli - Great club but most of their players only amount to prospects for us.

    Unless he's talking about a Tuscan player, Chiellini is the only one who comes to mind.

    OR, he could be winding us up, again. He talked in code all last window and the player turned out to be Leandro. No reason to talk in code about him.

    Dutch painting, not selling Dutch but buying Dutch.

    Could it be that striker? What's his name? We had a long thread about him............

    "Sunflowers" = Van Gogh = famous for painting in oil = "he's no oil painting" (famous phrase) = Rooney?

    I think I've cracked it!!!!!

    POTL says: "Sunflower"



    250px-Sunflower_sky_backdrop.jpg






    well from Sunflowers we get.... Sunflower Oil.





    sunfloweroil.jpg







    Now Oil obviously means "Oil of Olay". For the non metro-sexual fellas on here, it means this shit:







    olay_foundation_420.jpg







    Now Olay must link into.... Ole Gunnar Solskjaer







    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.jpg







    Solskjaer is famously (?) from Kristiansund in Norway.







    norway_land_map.jpg






    Norway clearly is an interpretation of somebody saying something like "No Way" using the fine Geordie accent (gibberish).







    image-1-for-cheryl-cole-in-pictures-gallery-298964675.jpg







    Geordie's obviously live in Newcastle & if you've ever had the displeasure of watching this shite (Geordie Shore):







    Geordie-Shore-007.jpg








    You'll know they refer to pulling the opposite sex as "Tashin on"








    geordie-shore-episode-2-17-gary-charlotte-kiss.jpg













    Now "Tashin" blatantly is a link to Moustache









    Moustache-Glasses-2.jpg






    and I don't see any other conclusion than us signing this wantaway, prolific, PL proven striker:

    My money is on the cryptic being:
    - Sunflower being Tournesol in French
    - Tournesol is also a place in France in Saint Remy de Provence
    - Therefore it is obviously Loic Remy
    (or whomever we end up signing - POTL will just spin it so he was right)

    (or Peter Crouch...)

    (or maybe just the same as "Yellow")

    Enough time wasted typing about his sh1t... realistically we wont be buying anyone.

    That's actually quite plausible (if Remy hadn't said he's 100% not moving this window).

    Oh well, at least it's only a week before he's proven to be full of shit again rather than months on end like in the Summer.

    Is it just me or is this window completely different from the one last year? Was it just the last day there was lots of speculation (namely Aguero at the last minute), or was it frenzied for the whole month? I seem to remember there being way more activity than this year. Maybe it's the FFP but no one seems to be buying anyone, not just us.

    To be honest it's probably a forum feature to rename "Huntelaar" to "He who shall not be named"

    POTL is the worst. I remember when ITK was fun and people would at least link us to actual players, now we get crap like blue/yellow and sunflower. If you can't have the common decency to at least make up a rumor, then he/she deserves all the crap thrown their way.

    There's a reason he and other ITKs post cryptic info. Obviously, yellow means Leandro but his post could easily refer to another player that hasnt been mentioned at all and as silly as it sounds the cryptic stuff is used to keep the media away from the players name. If he was to say the players name and we were trying to keep the deal quiet then it could cause some problems. Yes, its ridiculous and we all hate seeing cryptic posts but that's just how I see it.

    A good explanation, if I may say so. I have a simpler explanation - perhaps he's nothing more than an attention-seeking solipsistic twat.

    Exactly. It's not as though the media ever required anyone else's help to make up ridiculous transfer rumours in the past.
