Hearing Pjanic is already in the UK, looking at a deal to join us. He's being advised by a former Villa striker and and a former striker of ours. 

 

 

You could say it's Pjanic on the streets of London, he's with Dublin, Dundee and looking to join our side.

Cheers for the update, Grizz.

Could life ever be sane again? I wonder to myself.

Isn’t he out of contract at the end of this season? I doubt he’ll be back if he goes to Hearts.

Why the fuck would he go there  . Dear me


To be fair, he’s not set the lower leagues in England on fire during his loans. 
 

Been reading he’s been looking good in training since around March for us. He’s looked improved and stronger in pre-seaon. Deservedly made the bench on Saturday.

 

I’m sure I’ve read he’s out of contract next summer. Unless he signs a new one before we loan him, he’ll be off anyway.

Senile old fuck. What relevance has this got to do with supporters or anything?

 

Awaiting for the replies from some of our highly esteemed posters saying FSG are taking a % of the fee or some other bollocks.

Last time Paddy was this upset was when the Owl got fucked off from here…

 

I was with Paddy all the way till he tweeted “I can honestly”

@paddybarclay
I can honestly say that no tweet I’ve ever done has spawned such a massively ignorant response as the one about the confidentiality clause in the Harry Wilson transfer. To be fair, I expected it.

Twitter Journos I just don't get it, set out to say something you know will get the usual rabid response either because it's contraversional or just dumb as shit and somehow seem morally outraged when it happens. Oh I left bread for the birds and the bastards ate it, I expect different behaviour.

I'm sure Liverpool won't mind removing the confidentiality clause Paddy, so long as you personally foot all the legal bills and accept the subsequent damages claims from Fulham, Wilson and his agent. In your stellar journalistic career, I'm sure you've saved a bob or two.

An interesting read. Hopefully Spurs don’t cave.

My concern is Spurs historically do tend to cave at the end of windows.

 

Berbatov signed for the mancs on 1st September.

 

Modric signed for Madrid on 27th August.

 

Bale signed for Madrid on 1st September.

He's out of contract but has the option of another year. A series of underwhelming loans and never being a regular for Wales have probably put paid to any half decent transfer fee the club probably wanted. 

 

Bit pointless him signing an extension from his perspective to be probably loaned again.

Seems counterproductive but what they shouldn't do, if they sell him late, is panic and try to spend the money in a rush.

It’s pretty fucking funny if he has been shafted by Levy over that extra week of holiday but I reckon that’s just self preservation. Surely even Kane isn’t that stupid. The best thing about this is it’s as damaging to Spurs as it is Kane. Levy might come away with his reputation as a shrewd negotiator but which top player will want to take his word for shit now? It’s all a wonderful shower of shit. It’s just unfortunate it will all end with City signing a world class player.

Just now, Bad Red Bull said:

Apparently, it's either one of Adama Traore, Ismaila Sarr or Jared Bowen as our next signing.

Source?

My preference:

1. Adama

2. Bowen

3. Sarr

I accessed in on Twitter and it let me read the whole thing. However, I'm the same for the paywall on here. Weird.

 

Anyhoo, a summary was...

  • Kane believes he had gentleman's agreement to leave this summer if Spurs didn't qualify for the CL or won a trophy.
  • Man City's bid is more c.£125m than £100m.
  • Negotiations between City & Spurs have been ongoing for around a year.
  • Levy isn't negotiating any further and is refusing City's calls.
  • City expected to make one final push before deadline day.
  • Kane had an agreement with Levy to return late to training. Levy never told Espirito. Once it kicked off, Kane actually got himself back from holiday early.

It certainly reads like Kane's sources have leaked the story. It reads him in a very positive light. I just hope Levy sticks to his guns now.
