Happy Thursday, Spursland!
There is no trip to Eastern Europe this Thursday so we instead have to fixate on other things, like the impending transfer window. I, for one, can't stand the January window, which makes zero sense. Why would I think the summer window is good fun only to loathe the upcoming one?
I get grumpy this time of year because I don't see the sun and it makes me hate things that should be amusing. To remedy this I am considering making a picture of Son the background image on all my electronic devices just to remind that good things are possible in weather and the transfer window.
If anybody else has ways to be a little more cheerful on a daily basis, please let me know. Winter is coming, and I'd like to not depress you all everyday.
And now for the "news":

I really don't wish him any ill will, but I'd like to move him early in the window so that we can give playing time to Onomah and Pritchard, when he returns, without stressing about how we need to maintain some transfer value for Townsend. I think most clubs in for him know what they would pay and two decent games in Cup competition shouldn't change that.
