Trix said: Starting to look a lot better regarding the outs. Serious interest in all of them, and less resistance(on most parts) to leave. Told we are looking at an AM and a contingency plan if we can move a couple more.

Says he still hasn't heard anything re Zaha and his opinion is that it is "game playing" and he doesn't believe the interest is serious.

Go rep him

When: 28th August
Where: SC

The Goat hears that our interest is Isco is very real and that there is interest on his part too. The club should know pretty quickly on this one.

The boy from Forest is also of interest but there are complications regarding a loan back so that's ongoing and we're not the only ones in for him.

Another name that The Goat has been given is Zaha, again, The Goat hears that interest in he player is genuine.

Who: Hertyid
When: 28th August
Where: COYS

I waited all day to hear back from my guy on this. He's currently in Malta, no idea why.
He says it's not bullshit, we have been speaking with his dad all week (?), Madrid want him away at least one year on loan and we have been trying to negotiate a deal with them that gets around his buyout clause for the permanent option next summer (I don't know what this is).
Will come down to the player, apparently Milan (or Inter, I could work out who he meant) also chasing. Player doesn't really want to leave Madrid but game time likely to be limited.

When: 30th August
Where: SC

OK a few bits have landed on The Goat's lap, some not surprising but you get what you get..... so here we go.......

Mason has been told he can leave and won't have as much game time as we want to try the youngsters in the cups.

A deal for a keeper is agreed and fitness stuff is expected to be done this evening

As we all know GKN was supposed to have been done ages ago but we still expect this to happen

Isco. We have people out there and have had for the past week. Poch has spoken to player and family, Levy got the go ahead and its down to the clubs to agree terms. There's also an option closer to home (Zaha) which Levy is dealing with himself. We want both on perm deals not loans.

When: Deadline Day
Where: SC

Trix said: Zero, one or two(on top of those already done). That I am told this morning was the state of play early evening yesterday. Isco doubtful but still possible, Sissokko more likely but there is a difference in price. Player wants out though, so I personally wouldn't rule out a last minute Remy type loan deal(my opinion nothing more). Zaha though my mate thinks is a no go, but that is only from an agent and it's cone from the Palace side.

I read that we are amateurs in the window when in fact our new manager wants to rebuild the whole team with different players to previously what we looked at under MP and as he has been here only 2 months its a change in direction. So we cant or wont exactly go out and buy a whole new team in January! 
His team will revolve around Tanguy who he believes is top class. Add in Harry Sonny Alli Toby Hugo and you have the spine
Slowly things will evolve but i fear not at the pace for a lot of people on here but that is the reality.
Please do not post this anywhere else.
I also can concur with the others when they say that we are now actively looking at bringing in players especially in midfield.
Thank you

We have earmarked 5 key players, not necessarily the biggest names that we want by summer window. Anyone signed now either way would be on that list. They are RB/CB who can play across the back/2 midfielders of which one specialist DM/ Striker, who as well as playing if H rested etc, one who could also play with him, and versatile. Some of JM’s early targets deemed too expensive. But alternatives he is happy with. Aside from the obvious names out there, there is a list of players and their agents; more so we are engaged with the actual agents.

Last I'll say on this, but big players would have asked to leave had Poch stayed. I know people don't like hearing it but it's true. Everything the bought into with Poch his philosophy etc changed in the final year. It would have literally been like starting from scratch

some stuff from dragon1, some itk some opinion probably
I did not know about Fernandez until yest , but it’s def happening (gedson)
we’re in talks with another Portuguese international I can’t say too much but much more experienced than Fernandez and I’m not referring to bf (not silva at milan, not moutinho, not renato sanches)
think Jose is going to totally rebuild us
we are in for eze and he is likely to join
I would say loris , Toby , son , Kane and Alli are immortal and sess and tanganga will be part of the new dawn , everyone else is on trial between now and may
Kwp , Ccv and foyth all will leave on loan or be sold this window as not in squads everyone else needs to perform , it will be one in one out starting with Eriksen out and gelson in this week , this may well take three to four windows , we will take a lot of Mendez players but he will not drive our transfer policy

I've been reluctant to post on the main forum(have behind the scenes)because others have said differently, but I've heard it on three separate occasions now.

JM not keen on GLC and would rather the loan cancelled and the money was spent elsewhere.

BF-STATUS

JM likes and wants him. Problem is Sporting demanding 60m euros, with loan until end of season, and compulsory purchase. If loan until summer, then higher fee. That counts us out as it stands right now. Yanited also having issues with them. Because Sporting have a monetary value they want to receive. Yanited throwing various different players in the equation, but Sporting so far taking the piss on their value of the players offered. For example, it is like us offering them TN, and they say we pay 40m plus TN. Before anyone reads we are offering TN as a sweetener in any deals. WE ARE NOT!!!

I am going to be extremely cautious with what I am about to say. Please do not start guessing games etc, as some have. CE expected to be announced tomorrow. May I add, that with us we drag things out. SB everything agreed fee-wise, and structure not far from being finalised, if it hasn’t already in the past hour or so. KP we are where he wants to come. We want loan with option, and not crazy loan fee Milan want. Willian Josè actually still in the fire, and his club willing to do almost any deal. Striker from Germany our back-up, and it is not Werner. There is another that is back up to all this. The DM is seen as 60/40 against in this window.

DL still wants CL, and with the limited funds trying to make the digits work, and keep the banks happy. JM wants SB & striker done by Wednesday Bale is not happening!

CAUTION
That is the state of play, but you know us. Don’t blame DL here, as his hands are tied. He is doing everything to make it happen. And this is not come via club’s ‘spin doctors’

1. Llorente JM said no!
2. Benteke JM said no!
3. Can’t remember his name, but striker playing in Portugal-permit issues
4. Mario Balotelli JM was not against. But don’t trust dealing with Italian clubs after recent experiences. The offer was 6 month loan, covering his wages. If happy, talk in summer. His club started to play games, and we had not even engaged, so backed off
5. Willian Josè was offered as loan with option. Certainly NOT obligation! Hence us going cold 
6. KP (Polish striker from Milan). Agreed ALL . Loan with OPTION. Changed last minute to wanting Foyth/Lamela in similar deal.

How on earth we are going to blame DL is beyond me!

We can only do options due to financial balancing. Option has to be in our favour.
We won’t entertain obligation as effects our balance sheet. As Bank commitment would be needed.

summer different matter

Seeing that Frank has gone public that he is staying. We were very confident we could conclude a deal for Giroud, up until last night. We spent 3 days talking and agreed all. This morning Frank himself decided he wanted him to stay, due to their failure to bring in another striker. That was not the understanding we had. Chavs were willing. Frank this morning vetoed that happening.

club would of backed JM with obligation on Willian Josè, but he was not confident to do so. Would of stretched us (obligation) but DL would of done it. So with all this in mind, I call it the way I see it. I was pissed off like any supporter would be with out failure striker front. But after getting clear understanding, from my disclosure in past hour, how could I honestly start bashing our club on this? When the club/DL is at fault, I will call it. If I do, BsodL don’t get on my case that I have an agenda.Eze, verbally agreed for summer. We have first option

LISTEN OUT PLEASE!

we are heavily governed by our banks, and the credit we already drawn down, and have with them. Reality is; we will spend sensibly. We have auditors etc, under agreement watching how we spend every penny. The bank want to protect their asset, which is the stadium. Unless we have an investor to come in, pay off everything, we have to be creative and frugal. I rather that than false hopes. So don’t expect summer to see us rack up 150m in purchases Net spend. We thought we would of had more sponsors:naming rights etc.

I don’t like it, but that is how it is.

dovahkiindovahkiinPrecedeth most urgentlike!   Today at 10:23 AM

rock solid from cabinessence: JM has eye on someone for the summer who we can't get at the mo, but he has signaled his enthusiasm to sign, so back-up striker was only ever going to be a loan with option to buy, just in case they tore the place up. But obligation to buy was not an option. With the Polish striker, DL was prepared to accept obligation, but only if he could put performance conditions in there that he could control, such as number of appearances. Would have been ok, had not Hertha come in with permanent bid. Pretty much the same with all the other options, where clubs were insisting on obligations. Plus the players knew they were only stop-gap till the summer, so weren't exactly bursting at the seams to sign. And before you ask, no idea whatsoever who the summer fella is

dragon1 said:

A few points

1- We are no longer for sale and have not been since the palace home game last March so that is not a current option

2- Joe controls what happens with the club not DL , DL loves running the club he would never sell but its not his call

3- Levy is now under intense pressure from all quarters, Even before the Norwich game Joe thought both the results and performances Jose was delivering in relation to the obscene contract he was given were hugely disapointing, levy defense that Jose is a winner do not look to clever now after the last week , I do not know to many directors who would survive the debacle of having to pay 60 million managerial compensation to two high profile managers whilst overseeing a playing squad with little balance or quality , levy is far from untouchable, Spurs are big business now a 2 billion asset with 500 million turnover, levy future very much rest in the hands of Jose being able to turn around

4- Levy not for the first time was badly hoodwinked by Jose with what a wonderful squad you have etc , Jose predictably now changed his tune, pre Norwich Jose wanted 8 new players in the summer and the guy from Lyon as new DOF , I presume after Norwich and last night Jose will want even more player

and 

if I gave you a list of players that wanted to join and levy messed up the deals you would sob, he did amazing with the stadium to get the nfl , banks and authorities on board but one swallow does not make a summer he has been a dreadful chairman, Poch the messiah covered his shortcomings for 5 years but that ship has sailed.

and

Lewis now watches every games and finds Jose's tactics and football eye bleeding

and (looks more opinion but still interesting.

Dragon1 said:

I never wanted him but after poch threw in the towel after yet another summer of levy shambles ( this years deal f55k ups were coutino and Dybala ) and with scum closing in on Jose levy felt they had to act and Jose duly pulled levy pants down

They need to decide whether to stick or twist after the wham game , unless they are going too back him and bring the Lyon guy in there is no point , Jose did not want a striker in jan as he had a player in mind for the summer , Jose did this at united where they got him everything he wanted and he was still useless

There is no point crying over spilt milk we need to boot Jose and pay him off , we are miles from a cl team right now, we need to bring sess, parrot, cirkin and tanganga through and try and attract some bright talent in the summer and rebuild with a modern young coach, Jose is way way past it

Covid-19

I know there is a thread for that in essence. The strong talk is, they cannot see any league fulfilling their obligation of matches. And the contract of players, which covers holidays, training etc, insurance companies stipulations. And many more factors. It is looking like season cancelled. I heard this through more than three club directors connections.

every single club will take a financial hit, which will have its own consequences. I fear that is very likely. And I would have sincere full sympathy for Liverpool, Leeds, WBA. And the leagues further down.

Agents are not in favour of their players playing 3 games in ten days, with injuries very likely. Remembering that training shouldn’t really be taking place. I do not know if that has been enforced as of yet.

The above is educated opinion concluded from what I heard. So don’t go f’ng shooting me.

PLEASE STOP TAKING MY POSTS AND QUOTING THEM ELSEWHERE IN THIS FORUM!!!

Many thanks
