    it's not robben is it lads. He says it's a big one and now he wants it said in German and we've all heard how robben could be leaving the club and we know how close we were to signing him last time. I had a think and i cant think of who else it would be and although he isnt german he plays for bayern so maybe?

    Were we close to signing him? Really? Realistically, did we ever really look like signing him?

    It can't be Robben. But I don't have a clue who else?

    Right guys shoot me down if im totally wrong but the source doesnt suggest the player is German or even plays in Germany

    he asks for THE in german which is die!! at a long long shot it could be a player with the initials DM as THE and M are in caps

    soooooo... Diego Milito???

    could be horribly wrong :07:

    I can't wait to see how he tries to backtrack after this rumor gets shot down.

    the ITK must be an total idiot to think we would even have a slight chance in getting gomez + him wanting to move.

    Im laughing and falling out of my chair! Why dont we try for david villa instead. More chances.

    He hasnt said anything about getting him, he's just said we've "found" him. So the club are the idiots in your post then.

    Is the top scorer in the Bundesliga that hard to find?

    There's no way he would sign for Spurs.

    .....And I'm having a hard time believing an intelligent man like Levy would think there's a chance he would.

    I dont quite understand. He has said anything about getting him?

    But we found our man in gomez? As in the club is looking at gomez? Or type of gomez?
    Cuz if we would even consider thinking about trying to make any bid for gomez. Levy would look like an idiot.

    Or I am I not understanding something here? We found him doesnt mean we want him? o_O

    I meant to say he hasnt said anything about getting him.......

    it seems the club has "found" or has become "interested" in going after him, which would be 1 year too late after the season he just had.

    way too late.
    But hoeneß wouldnt even sell him last year after his bad season on the bench because he knew he is a 20+ goal scorer.

    If you want to buy gomez right now it would cost around 50-60million euro€.(if not more to get the player away) Im not saying hes worth 50-60 million euro but the fact that bayern paid 30 million for him. they wouldnt sell him without at least 20 million profit to the next club because bayern has the money. To be fair I dont even think they would sell him for 60 million because they konw they paid 30 million + 5 million addons.

    Bayern paid 30million for him and they would want at least 20-30 million profit for the next transfer IF they were to sell him because he is their total top scorer + he will be the number 1 striker for germany for the next 10 years.

    If he was a bench player for bayern(for 2 seasons) and bayern had another number 1 striker then Im sure bayern would sell him for 35 million €.

    I dont know if the ITK is not trustworthy or if levy hasnt followed football the last year if the itk is right.

    Sorry but unless I'm having a massive fail in reading comprehension he at least implied that we are after "TheMan". Why would he pass something as irrelevant as 'interest' as ITK?

    Let the hedging begin....

    All I wanted to clear up is that the Goat is not an idiot and a credible ITK, his info is passed on from someone at the club so they must be in the clouds about trying to go after Gomez if he is indeed the player the info ties into.

    but you cannot compare gomez the best striker of the german national team and someone who has scored 28 goals in 35 games for bayern last season and someone who scored almost every season over 20 goals for stuttgart and where bayern paid 30 million to stuttgart to VDV someone real madrid wanted to get rid of as soon as possible because they bought özil and khedira ,mourinhos desired players.

    Its like we would try to make a bid for Rooney.

    This bid on gomez would be on the same level as a bid to rooney.

    if the rumour is true then levy would have had some indication a deal was possible otherwise he wouldnt bother. As you say he isnt a silly man.

    The point still remains, if his info is correct Levy is an idiot.

    I know he isn't so I'm more willing to give him the benefit of the doubt over a random guy who has "connections" in THFC.

    mate trust me on this 100% there is no deal possible.

    Just to say how impossible the deal is....

    If man city would come in with a 60 million bid for gomez to bayern.

    Bayern would laugh it off.

    Hope you know how impossible it is.

    Then get him to elaborate on his statement. If he isn't a WUM then he can clarify without giving up his "source".

    Cant really force the guy to follow up on the info, as he said he isnt really in a position to name names as far as his cryptic clue goes.

    lol considering it was titled "bits and bobs" its a bit of a bold one really. Must surely mean somebody else? I mean no way unless he's truly not happy but i can never see being true.
