'If It's Football, It's Vital'

DEADLINE DAY NONSENSE!!

Yep, the title deserved capital letters & an exclamation mark, it is, afterall, the countdown to the day that so many people look forward to, DEADLINE DAY!!! We do look forward to it, right? Will we get any surprises? Will we stick or twist? I know which one I want us to do, but will our club feel the same way?

There's going to be LOTS of rumours, rubbish, and downright ridiculous stuff mooted around, but surely you/we all know by now that we should have that barrel load of salt available? Either way, I've decided to submit this early, due to the fact that it'll be LOTS of info coming in from today onwards. I'm going 'balls deep' into this one, so buckle up & get ready for a LONG read :-)

Here's where we're at right now, and more will be added as it comes in. I fully hope that this will get a massive amount of responses, as we pick every last splinter out of every snippet of information.

YEVHEN KONOPLYANKA - Rumours are all over Europe that suggest we've entered the race in an attempt to hijack Liverpoo's bid. Here's a link to one story - http://fcdnipro.com/news/konopljanka-vedet-peregovory-s-tottenxemom-813.html

@AddictedtoSpurs: Konoplyanka's Agent : 'I had yesterday a long important talk with a President of an English Club (Not LFC). My Player could move there too'

And here's (Spurs supporting) Greg Stobart (of Goal.com) adding fuel to the fire - ‏@gstobart -
Sounds like #THFC have definitely shown an interest in #LFC target Konoplyanka. Not sure as to extent of discussions yet.

Whilst this is an article that 'suggests' our manager likes the player - http://www.goal.com/en-gb/news/2892/transfer-zone/2014/01/30/4580638/tottenham-eye-late-move-for-liverpool-target-konoplyanka?ICID=HP_BN_3

And Ben Smith (one of The BBC's main football journalists) was questioned by a Liverpoo supporter on twitter.

Daniel4Lfc. ‏@Danielfils
@BenSmithBBC Are spurs also interested in konoplyanka and have they made a bid??

Ben Smith ‏@BenSmithBBC
@Danielfils Yes Spurs are in for Yevhen Konoplyanka. De ja vu for Liverpool

And here's a clip of him giving our current Right-Back a lesson (and actually outpacing him :-0 ) -http://www.express.co.uk/sport/football/456740/VIDEO-Watch-Liverpool-target-Yevhen-Konoplyanka-terrorise-Spurs-star-Kyle-Walker

And here's an excellent clip from ScoutNation - http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=zBSGaakkUsc

Will we actually get him? Is there REALLY a late interest being showed by us? Buggered if I know, but I somehow doubt it, and I reckon the Ukranians are just using us to get Liverpoo to meet his release clause (I don't know what that is)

Then, maybe not related to the Konopplyanka story, but JJetset was questioned on twitter..

Mr e ‏@harj_jhutie
@jetsetyid are we gunna do anything in the transfer market mate?

The original JJetset ‏@jetsetyid
@harj_jhutie Maybe ....

DIMITAR BERBATOV - Greg Stobart ‏@gstobart
@smileberg I think Berbatov will come back once Fulham have signed Mitroglou

@wayneveysey: Levy wants Berbatov. Sherwood not so sure. Fulham want Holtby & Mitroglu. Will only allow Berba to leave if Mitroglu agreed. Story to come.

Chris Miller ‏@WindyCOYS
The Times are reporting that Berbatov will move to Spurs until the end of the season, with Holtby going on loan to Fulham. #THFC #Spurs

http://metro.co.uk/2014/01/30/tottenham-make-1million-offer-to-re-sign-fulham-striker-dimitar-berbatov-4283368/

LEWIS HOLTBY - Greg Stobart ‏@gstobart
Lewis Holtby waving goodbye to the few Tottenham supporters still here after another embarrassing defeat.

Apparently he also threw his shirt into the crowd? Hopefully it's a 6 month loan swap for Holtby. Surely that makes sense for ALL parties?

ITK from 'RyanTegan' and 'Gards'... http://i.imgur.com/UnBWmsH.png & http://i.imgur.com/N2jgRqN.png

And here too (about Konoplyanka).. Gards ‏@Gards44 Protected Tweets
@SibsTHFC there talking nonsense no football knowledge and we have tracked this guy for over a year!

Jay (ryantegan) ‏@ryantegan
working on 2 in and 2 out. But probably too late for the ins. would be typical. 'We tried but...'

Jay (ryantegan) ‏@ryantegan
Capoue may not move on a permanent. Could be a LOAN if things are left too late

That's about it for now. I could keep going because 'info' is coming through in a constant stream right now. You all know the drill by now, if you don't like it, don't comment on it. If you think it's bullpoop, it probably is bullpoop, but it could also be true, who knows? All I do know for sure, is that this is NOT an article about Levy. This is NOT an article about ENIC. This is NOT an article about Joe Lewis. Therefore, if you wish to go on a 's**t-slinging quest' about any of those topics, please feel free to submit an article & have a chat with yourself. This is all about transfer related Nonsense, not your own personal vendetta Nonsense. Here's to our Deadline Day build up :-) COYS
