Transfer window closed, the major deadline deals
DATE: 01.09.2016 - SOCCERVOICE - NEWSDESK
There could be
moves still happening with other european transfer windows still
open, but for now England is closed
Many clubs had their buying and selling done, but a few managed to
bring in and load off a number of players during a hectical end to a
window system that makes it look "idiotic".
As teams prepared for international games, players are flying around,
leaving their camps and trying to settle new deals and move on to
new clubs all around Europe. This is no good, and tells a story of a
system that is totally out of controll.
Before the window system, clubs could buy and sell as the wanted,
and players were not sitting around in airports waiting for clubs to
buy them. The fact that the window is open even after the season has
started is even worse, so there must be changes made.
Transfers have always been a dilemma in football, but it is part of
the game and will always be, the point is to regulate the movements
in a better way and hopefully make it easier for clubs to have a bit
more controll, at least over players still under contract.
A number of players often hand in transfer requests, and if they are
accepted then ok, but if not, go back to your work and do what you
are supposed to. A number of moves went through and some clubs came
late into the transfer market this summer and made their moves.
Stoke City could have done a number of good signings at the end,
bringing in Wimmer from Tottenham and Martins Indi from Porto. They
have also landed a player named Darren Fletcher, who did well at
West Bromwich and can do the same at Stoke.
Man Utd and Man City are both winners in transfers this summer,
doing the business needed and really looking "ready to go". Chelsea
made a few strange signings and bringing in Danny Drinkwater from
Leicester, for a fantasy fee of £ 35 million, looks strange.
Tottenham will be fine, they sold Walker to Man City, but has late
in the window brought in great quality in Sanchez, Llorente and
Aurier. Interesting to see how Spurs will manage this season,
exciting days coming up.
Liverpool are also winners this summer. Chamberlain is a good
signing, Salah looks the same. Robertson and Solanke are also
exciting new names. Anfield will be a fun place to be during the
