Seen this today? http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/foo...ka-Modric.html
Yeah I've seen it, I still reckon he's worth more and I think we should hold out for 35m, he's going to go.......either now or January, I just hope we do the deal soon so we have the time and the money to sign a striker, I want Rossi and I want him now!

Almost?

Erm ... 35 + 23 = ?

Give me a call ... I have a vacancy in my accounting department for a "creative" accountant.

We have one too, if you know of anyone...
Sorry, I was including the reported 9M profit they made on Babel as well.. I should have made reference to it in the post.

At first I thought it could be the original, but then I realised there were no tear stains.

Supporting Spurs is never easy

Yeah, apparently the rumour is that city are signing Sergio Aguero from Atletico Madrid. (£39 million).

What's going on at WHL then, spursbird? No money, or is Harry on holiday at the Costa Del Sol? I saw that they've spent some.. Bongani Khumalo (£1.5m), and Steven Pienaar (£3m from Everton).

As for Modderz, if he wants to go, let him go. Nobody can afford to take over Keane's wages (for what he does), and you're going to keep hold of Bentley for another season.

All United have signed is Anders Lindegaard.. we still need to unload our own "sicknote", Owen Hargreaves.

Supporting spurs is easy, you just need to stop having high expectations.

Apparently we've got no money to splash until we've sold, Levy is a business man he doesn't like going into the red unlike some

Pienaar and his mate were signed in January....

Yeah well, I can't say I blame Levy for not wanting to go into the red. The greedy Glazers and their extended family seem content to bleed the MU bank account ... where's my green and gold scarf?

January? Really? I was thinking it was this transfer window.

Dear oh dear your knowledge of spurs is sadly lacking......did you know for instance that we are about to off load Keane, Hutton and Bentley, snatch Rossi at the last minute from the jaws of Juve, secure Adebayor (yeah I know he's an arse but he's preferable to Pav/Defoe/Crouch), Modders will stay, Sandro will make a miraculous recovery and we will go on to win the Europa League and the premiership title next summer? Glory, glory Tottenham Hotspur....

...and the Spurs go marchin.. wait! it was all a dream.

Of course my knowledge of them is lacking, but it's ok.. I have you to fill me in with the details that I might miss.
