"The great fallacy is that the game is first and last about winning. It's nothing of the kind. The game is about glory. It is about doing things in style, with a flourish, about going out to beat the other lot, not waiting for them to die of boredom."

So, who is going to be our first big signing of the nuno era?

Agaliarept - 13 Jul 2021 13:05:14 (#2 of 777)

Phil Jones.

Hello, shiny new thread. Hope renewed here.

Nice one, Billy. As for new signings I don't have a scooby. If Vince was around we might get some inside news, but he seems to have gone AWOL recently.

Cheers for the new shiny thread Billy. It is sounding like the Japanese CB could be one of our first incomings. I think all the talk of Damsgard, and Kounde are just fantasy speculation, even if that's how he intends to spend any money we may be getting for Harry, I don't see them wanting to come to WHL (or whatever it will be named). I do think getting rid of ALL the deadwood at the back and replacing with much better quality is absolute central to our future. Talk of selling Rondon seems crazy to me and is hopefully just lazy journalism.

Phil Jones? Seriously?

BBBilly - 13 Jul 2021 20:11:52 (#8 of 777)

I think that was an attempt at humour, as if we haven't suffered enough.

slimpickins - 14 Jul 2021 08:19:45 (#9 of 777)

Aww, had my hopes up for a moment there.

First press conference for Nuno -

Agaliarept - 16 Jul 2021 17:21:16 (#12 of 777)

Phil Jones? Seriously?

Post #3 should& #39;ve indicated my wishful thinking ;)

slimpickins - 16 Jul 2021 16:33:11 (#13 of 777)

You can have him, we might even through in a free Martial.

I like the new thread title, it's acronym 'JtT' has the nostalgia that's essential for all teams in the form of a homage to a dying message board format.

or something.

Any older supporter of a mind to avoid developing dementia, should have avoided Talksport radio this evening. Earlier, trollish Andy Goldstein discussing things with 'Tottenham fan' Jamie O' Hara. At present Jason Cundy discussing Spurs and Harry Kane with some of the dopiest people I've heard in a while. None of it was good for my brain cells which I could sense leaping off the top of my skull.

- this evening

+ this decade, century, (etc)

1MELSM - 17 Jul 2021 11:53:44 (#16 of 777)

The honourable gentleman has a point.

MadamGeorge - 20 Jul 2021 12:27:07 (#17 of 777)

BBC reckons we are about to sign a loan deal for a new keeper. Doesn't say if this will be a back up or a replacement for Lloris.

DBD333 - 20 Jul 2021 13:28:49 (#18 of 777)

The Graun had that story yesterday including a line about him being expected to challenge Lloris for his place.

popstar7 - 20 Jul 2021 13:42:56 (#19 of 777)

Lots of reports we’re bringing in 20-year-old left winger, Bryan Gil, from Sevilla. Eric Lamela plus €25m going in the other direction.

1MELSM - 20 Jul 2021 14:56:41 (#20 of 777)

Good to see players back training, joined yesterday by Sonny who isn't playing in something like the Olympics this time round. He enjoyed and added to the exuberance of others in what looked like intense sessions.

Saturday's match with Orient to be added to with a friendly against Colchester tomorrow evening.
