    Bah for Celtic the transfer window was like a night out in Glasgow. Started off looking promising but ended with a last minute Chinese...

    Im surprised at Everton signing Heitinga on the relatively cheap and Spurs getting Krancjar for a knock down 2.5 million. I know he was in the last year of his contract but I still found it surprising

    Hey guys. When exactly does the summer transfer window close? And is it always the same every year, or does it vary?

    I think it's the same each year, and having a complete guess here, the last Friday of September.

    We've sold our best players and have replaced them with shite ones! wall wall wall

    So are there expected to be any more big transfers before then? I mean, we've all heard about the Fabregas drama, the Torres drama, etc. Are there going to be any big names that move?

    Also, I'm starting to get really fed up with Barca's antics. Their courting of Fabregas has been completely off-putting and now Villa has said that he's "surprised Torres hasn't moved to Chelsea yet." That may be a true statement, but why are all the Barca players sticking their noses where they don't belong and stirring up trouble?

    I had been a fan of the club, but this is starting to sway me the other way.

    Spanish football is a law onto itself basically the do what they want when they want and as long as English football isnt dominating UEFA are happy to let them work away. Barca aren't to bad but Real Madrid are a horrible club, they do all their negotiations in the media!

    Manchester City signed Dzeko for 27 mill. He reckons City are the only club he wanted to sign for which may be code for none of the other teams interested put in a bid because 27 mill is a bit crazy. I haven't actually seen him play outside of youtube videos which are designed to make him look good but I hear he is a very good player.

    He's great in Football manager. Therefore he must be good in real life. Cool

    Glad to see City have spent even more money on strikers. Laughing

    Well, this is shaping up to be quite a deadline day.

    I think torres will move and carrol will come in to replace him. Also wouldn't be surprised to see Charlie Adam leave, seeing as how they just signed Andy Reid.

    Also, so happy to see Michael Bradley possibly getting a permanent move to villa. I may be biased, but he is very talented and should shine in England.

    So it looks like Liverpool will be spending near 71 million today. Crazy.

    Also, word is that Spurs have offered Villareal 30 million for Guiseppi Rossi.

    Glad that Liverpool didn't get Adam.

    As for Carroll...35m isn't bad business in itself. I personally think that it's about double what I would think is a fair price (same for Torres too btw). The problem is selling your main goal threat at the last minute on deadline day. Had we done it on 1st Jan, leaving us time to replace him (or even taken the spurs offer of 20m + Keane & Crouch), it would have been fine. As it is, we flog Carroll & attempt to replace him with a pathetic, desperate bid for that tempremental french poof Charles Insomnia who I remember leaving here under a hell of a storm to "go & play for a bigger club".

    Throughout all this, I can't help but think of a talk in I was at with Shay Given recently. He'd taken the decision that he had to leave & was told at the start of January "we're going to sell you to City, but we're not doing it until the end of the window so we're not under pressure to spend any of the money".

    I'd expect nothing less from this clueless bunch of cunts that have our club.

    As for the summer? We're not going to see too much of this 35m invested in the squad. What also concerns me is the goalkeeping situation. We have an ageing Steve Harper, Frazer Forster on loan at Celtic, Tim Krul is ready & Ole Soderberg isn't far off the mark. Forster's been on fire at Celtic & is going to want to be playing in the summer. The sensible thing to do would be to move Harper on, let Krul & Forster battle it out, with Soderberg being backup when needed. What odds on Forster & Krul being sold?

    Incidentally

    35m is outrageous for a player like Carroll. Personally I would've bitten Spurs hand off if they offer 20m and those two proven strikers, in fact I would've accepted a 20m offer and accepted an exchange deal with those two players, both of which I believe are closer to his value.

    Pardew was hopeless at buying strikers at Charlton. He spent millions on dross like Andy Gray and Izale McCloud and brought in loads on loan players, most of whom I've forgotten about.

    We've signed some shitty left full back from Leeds, who Leeds fans hate and the current top goal scorer of League 1, who marked his debut with a goal last night, Bradley Wright-Phillips. We also have Eccleston on loan from Liverpool who also scored on his debut and looks like a decent player. Our side is very unbalanced with a poor defence.

    Crazy window, I thought crazy transfer these days were only done by Man City.

    I scored 24 goals helping my side win promotion back to the Premier League aged just 22.

    Then in my first season in the top flight I had bagged an impressive 15 goals by the end of January. Including a goal against the reigning champions, away at Arsenal and in a home win over Liverpool. My form earned me an England call-up and my debut in an international friendly.

    Am a I 35m striker?...........................

    We shipped out 7 players and loaned in a goalie. But we really needed at least 2 good strikers.

    It was the last real chance for English clubs to splash out though David, I'm not saying it justifies it but they are going to struggle once UEFA brings in their rule about spending beyond your means. I found the Milan chairman a bit rich complaining when his team have brought in Robinho, have Ibrahimovich on loan with a deal for a permanent move in the summer and are constatntly linked to Balloteli. Can he really expect us to believe his team can sign all three inside 12 months and do it within UEFA's new guidlines?

    Crazy window, I thought crazy transfer these days were only done by Man City.

    At the time I thought the deal for Keane & Crouch was bad business. Crouch isn't as good as Carroll (I mean that in terms of different styles of play, Crouch isn't as strong) & Keane is getting past his best. Both probably would have put the wage bill up considerably. That being said though, if they were determined to sell him, it would have been much better for us in terms of squad strength. & that was before Shola broke his cheekbone last night.

    On another note, FIFA's new rules are a farce. Total sham. Clubs will still be able to recieve "gifts" from billionaires, just not "loans". So Abramovich or whoever can still donate 100m to buy the latest player, then take a cut of the profits later & get their money back. It's not going to change a thing IMO. Nice idea, but totally unworkable. Even if they close that loophole, a few advertising deals will still allow the money to flow in.

    I didnt know that about the "gifts", surely thats opening the whole world up to the bull shit that goes on in South Amaerica where clubs pay companies to use players. Like the Tevez and Mascherano craziness when they first came to England.

    Henderson 20 mill- Liverpool
    Jones 17 mill- Manchester United
    De Gea 18.5 mill- Manchester United (hopefully)
    Young 16 mill- Manchester United (looking likely)
    Jenkinson ? - Arsenal

    Looks like Tevez is off as well publicly slating Manchester and England on Argentine television.

    Busy enough start to summer, when does the transfer window officialy open July 1st?

    They gave us 2m for Jenkinson! Laughing

    Great player, which is why we loaned him out to the mighty Eastbourne and only offered him a one year deal. Looked decent in the 8 or so games he played for us in League one. with stupid

    I think he'll be the last piece in the puzzle and they'll get the league this season, or perhaps we'll never see him in a football shirt again. owned

    We've signed Danny Hollands who should be a decent replacement for Jose Semedo, not that any of you lot would know who either player is! Embarassed
