    Anybody who has a username named after Lil’Bow Wow is hard to believe. If you had a username that was properly British, like Mr. Smith, I would be far more inclined to believe you.

    This is quite clearly a lie, but I'm going to cling to it like a crucifix.

    Were you at an Esso garage by any chance?

    Now I don't claim to be 'ITK' (unlike some around here) but one of my cousins recently escaped its owner's aquarium and took up residence in Doucoure's back garden. Unbeknownst to Watford's 'midfield maestro' my cousin overhead a few very interesting conversations. The main points I can confirm for now:
    • Doucoure speaks French on the phone most of the time.
    • He's had offers from PSG, Everton, West Ham, Liverpool and more surprisingly, Charlton.
    • His garden is ill-equipped to support the lifestyle of a young monotreme.
    • Abdoulaye is holding out in the hope of an offer from the club he supported as a boy: Hibernian.
    Again, I can only relay what my source told me, I am by no means ITK. Oh and make of it what you will obviously.
     
  6. His 14 hours a day snooze would certainly not be sustainable with some giant kicking his balls around the place - and the probable lack of crustaceans would play a big part too. And if he's a Queensland platypus, he probably doesn't appreciate having a cold cloaca...

    Heard the exact same thing reported on Spanish radio so could be some truth in it...

    Leave this joke for Lizard. That's the only thing he contributes to this forum. Please don't take that away from him. #saveourlizard

    PSG's signing of Paredes is now confirmed.

    Though I'm surprised to see that they're also still being heavily linked today with Gueye - and Gueye has suspiciously been left out of Everton's entire squad for their match tonight vs Huddersfield.

    Should Everton sell Gueye, any chance that they chuck a load of that cash at us for Doucoure, we accept, and Doucs is happy to go rejoin Sssnake?!

    £26m accepted for Gueye.

    Wonder if Ssssnake will go for Doucoure?

    Everton premium is 2x normal asking price, so that'll be £100,000,000 please Marco

    Really wouldn't suprise me if this happens and he's a toffee by the end of the day tomorrow.

    If PSG buy Gueye and Paredes I guess that is the end of Doucoure’s dream move for the foreseeable future.

    I think they come in for him for £40m if Gueye moves. And we will reject it out of hand.

    It will almost certainly be a ‘Sky Sources’ type piece of news on the yellow ticker tape on SSN but no way does he go there IMO.

    It may be word what he said to you face to face, but any info without the Esso seal of authenticity is worthless.

    Is he/the club still faking his injury?

    Yes. Expect to see him on a whistle stop tour of top club car parks tomorrow, with his agent as he flutters his eyelashes for a last minute move to one of the under pressure bosses of underperforming, sleeping giants,

    The performances with the stand ins continue to show how massively above their level he is. We are lucky to have him.

    Does no-one find it even a little coincidental that he sat out nearly all of the last transfer window whilst encouraging a transfer in the french press and claiming 'injury'....and now the same is happening in the January window?

    I suppose it depends if you think the club made up his appendicitis and subsequent operation in the summer.

    No, not really. He was playing in this transfer window until he was injured against Palace in a clash. He was standing with his leg planted, someone tripped Townsend and his full weight went onto Doucoure's knee, causing it to buckle. He then limped through the rest of the game, constantly trying to stretch out that leg as though something was wrong. He hasn't played since and Gracia says he's got a knee injury. Case closed.

    And with our medical record a minor knock has probably turned into a full blown ligament tear!

    We never seem to rush anyone who has been injured back...

    In the summer... right now I'd rather keep him and sell Pereyra

    The person who "broke" that story is Darren Lewis from The Mirror who is generally hopeless.

    The way the original story reads is Sarri has suddenly realised he needs midfielders after last night's result and Doucouré was left out of our squad so must be on the move... 2+2=5
