OK in a normal circumstance when we have got a manager that we trust and a team that can fight on some kind of an equal footing then I'd agree that time isn't the biggest factor. But the situation that the club is in we really shouldn't be dragging our arses while we are giving players (both ours and potential transfers) the impression we dont have a bloody clue WTF we are doing! Would you go play for some club that dont know what their next step will be or rather play for a strong club that know exactly where they aim to be at the end of the season?

We dont have the strongest reputation for attracting GOOD players as it is but our best windows in the last few years have been when we have acted quickly and knew who our targets were before the window opened. But as we dont have a sporting director or the manager that has any sort of idea what our current players are like so won't have an idea of where he needs to strengthen or who he needs to get shot of. As well as our current best players being tempted by our stronger rivals for varying reasons it all shows what a mess we are in. This isn't the sort of problem that gets sorted in 1 window. It takes planning and a team working together from top to bottom to sort it. Not Romans normal quick fix by chopping off the head and growing another.

So we cant afford to be all chilled and relaxed just hoping that the club 'dont usually botch up' because they have, often. And we are already behind our rivals so the more we ummm and ahhh the further we fall back.

I'm normally very optimistic and the one saying it will all be OK. But gotta admit I'm worried right now.

Fairly certain that as the manager has very little say in who we sign it won't make a blind bit of difference if he's in place or not. They'll be making contact with players and agents as we speak. They certainly won't announce anything until the manager is in place. Anyway maybe your right I just think there's so much panic goes on between here and Twitter. Just have more important things personally to concern myself with than worrying every day that goes by about what's going on at the club. It'll be interesting no matter what

That Alfredo Whathisface asking for patience in his latest Tweet about Sarri:lol: Dont worry mate, it's only been just short of a month since the final whistle blew at Wembley, we have signed fucking nobody and the managerial situation is a fucking mess.

But but but but season only ended a few weeks ago? Still plenty of time :ph34r:

Signing Sarri is complicated because all of this. It is occured just 2 weeks ago, along with a holiday in mind, so if it's happening this week, I think it is still sensibly acceptable if you think about it. Well, we know how hard-ass de Laurentiis was to negotiate with.

Careful there mate. Calm rational thinking is frowned upon

But they don't need to rush except that bed wetters on social media are crying for them to do something. And in fairness they don't usually botch up. Think they've been more good than bad . Relax, if you think about it very little has been done by other teams. All happen soon

Simon Phillips on twitter quoted mediaset that a potential price of 11m Euros which would include Raul Albiol is in the works. Apparently Sarri asked for this player and his release clause is 6m Euro which puts the fee at 5m Euro.

I used Potential and Apparently to underline this is a twitter rumour.

 

I don't really care for Albiol but if Sarri says he wants him 6m is a laughably small sum in todays market for a piece he requests. 

 

This is a new rumour ive never heard, id expect the final deal to be something along these lines. A player + Sarri release for a fee.

The funny thing is similar things were said before the start of Jose last season. No much happening.. People told to calm and someone joked we'd end up going down or near the bottom.... Then lo and behold we did up in near the bottom for a bit. Since then do think hmmm maybe the panic is for a reason... And other times not. More to do with we're slow in the window and this time we ain't got as much time to mess things up. Hopefully.. This time all smooth 

Once this is sorted that is

It's one thing to be concerned and show it in a constructive manner (like your doing), it's another when the club starts getting slagged off in ways i'd expect to see on Spurs forums.

I wouldn't be against this. Albiol is far from a world beater but the likelihood is that if Luiz leaves and Azpilicueta reverts back to full back, we probably need an extra centre back. We are still well stacked at the back with Rudiger, Christensen and Cahill too, and we need to be spending good money in other areas of the pitch so I'd rather be spending £5-6m on a squad signing then £30-40m like Savic would probably end up being. 

The other thing to consider is that if Sarri comes in, our style will change massively and as a result will take some time for adjustment. Having somebody come in who has worked with him and can be trusted for the short term makes sense. Especially as he demands his defenders play the ball out of pressure, having a player already drilled in this way will hopefully help the rest of the defence to adapt quicker.
