Mauricio Pochettino award winning humanitarian and past time Bielsa fan has released a steam of cats from his Mega Store carrier bag.

“Until today, now, no-one is close to arriving in this transfer window. Maybe in 5 minutes something happens. But now, nothing. I’m not concerned. We’re awake about the market. If something’s available in the terms we can take, of course we are going to take it”

So we’re working on nothing. Have no aspirations, no targets and no plans.

Of course the gaffer is not concerned.

Which in the Argentine’s own Beaufort Scale Of Jive Talk equates to a bit of wind up his kilt, but not quite full on ‘Calm’.

To continue the Gwen Guthrie motif, Poch appears to be ignorant to the old ‘No romance without finance’, line.

      Something we’ll never get out of Lloris is a decent goal kick that counts as an assist. Unless it’s for the other team, of course.

    I still don’t know what a Vector image is. Is a picture of an old vauxhall?

    Not sure if you are serious, but… it’s a scaleable graphic drawn by a computer mathematically rather than by pixels – so it can be scaled infinitely.

    • legendary greavesy January 12, 2018 at 7:42 pm

      Painting by numbers rings a bell

    • Sid Trotter January 12, 2018 at 8:56 pm

      So it’s like a Gif that doesn’t move. A Stationary picture that you can cut and paste anywhere – and you can crop it – is that right?

      • Accy January 12, 2018 at 9:04 pm

        It’s like a living, breathing version of a Renoir. But only so many copies of them can exist. Any cutting and pasting incurs a charge of $19.95 to the Canadian government.

    Im slighty confused as I thought Poch said we needed to be signing players early (in Jan) so they are ready for next season or was that some bullshit i read on Newsnow?

    It’s possible we might still sign someone this window ready for summer. Not necessarily signing them for the rest of the season.
