PANIC buying is the order of the day as clubs with more money than sense go mental as the clock ticks down to tonight’s deadline.

It has become an annual ritual with Jim White digging out his yellow tie, chairmen digging into their pockets and football associations being the only people in the 21st century who still use fax machines.

Will David De Gea be forced to sulk for months at Old Trafford or will his on-off move to Real Madrid go through even though the Spanish deadline has come and gone?

Will Saido Berahinho and John Stones get the moves the crave? Will Celtic flog Virgil van Dijk and use the money to sign more Scottish talent who’ll never get a game? Will Jim White burst a blood vessel through sheer excitement at someone joining Burnley?

We’ll know the answers to these and all other burning transfer questions throughout the day, so get involved with your bets, theories and transfer-related chat and hope and pray your club doesn’t sign a total donkey for £20million.

    A couple of big deals for Inter Milan to finish the night on as they have brought in Adem Ljajic and Felipe Melo.

    They have also sold Hernanes(to Juventus) but with Jovetic joining them too they could be decent for goals this season!

  2. Nick 1 year ago

    PIAZON JOINS READING(Only on loan but could be a great addition)
    IBARBO TO JOIN WATFORD ON LOAN(Should be sealed tomorrow)
    LAYUN JOINS PORTO(Had him in my fantasy team :@ )

    Few big tranfers that aren’t in the limelight!

  3. Mr. Orange 1 year ago

    I already forgot Piazon. But that was a great player when he was with Vitesse Arnhem.

  4. craigyboy 1 year ago

    West Brom to sign more players on transfer deadline day


    William Hill

    (Small stakes advised)

  5. Donny 1 year ago

    Hey Craig, any reason?

  6. craigyboy 1 year ago

    Nothing more than a speculative bet. If Berahino goes (which I think will need to happen to give this bet a real chance) I wouldn’t be surprised to see West Brom go in for Walters, Adebayor (who West Ham can’t sign now) or Austin.
    Enrique from Liverpool is in talks and Phillips from QPR has been heavily linked.
    Pulis is normally a busy man on transfer deadline day and openly admitted his team needs strengthening.
    Wouldn’t be surprised to see four or possibly five signed by them today.

  7. Dazzler 1 year ago

    £5 on Austin to Spurs @ 33/1

    If wba don’t let Berahinho go(wba saying he won’t be sold), Spurs will need an alternative. Also Adebayor seems to be going out on loan, so they’ll be pretty much no back up for the strikers.

    Austin has a good premier league record and is fairly cheap, which ticks boxes for Levy.

  8. BigB 1 year ago

    Craigyboy, did you chuck some money on De Gea to stay in the end? You must be chuffed that De Gea’s paperwork didn’t get in on time!

  9. craigyboy 1 year ago

    Definitely worth a punt Dazzler at those odds.

    If you think about the deals happening you know Austin will be moving somewhere. Heard he is keen on a move to London as well.

    Would sooner put a fiver on a move to Spurs at 33’s than backing QPR at 7/4.

    West Brom cut to 6/1 and 8/1 elsewehere so the bookies obviously feel it could be busy at the Hawthorns.

  10. craigyboy 1 year ago

    BigB I did. Have just covered at 9/4 for a small profit if it does go through which wouldn’t surprise me with the clubs involved.

    Whenever there is a deal involving another player going the other way and you can get odds of 20/1 plus it’s always worth a small bet especially with an hour or two left…Too many factors involved…Apparently Navas stalled the paperwork because he wasn’t happy with the contract…so nothing to do with De Gea.

  11. Dazzler 1 year ago

    Craigyboy I think you’re right he’ll most likely move, only problem is his wages. He’s on about 80k a week, which has put off a lot of clubs. If Adebayor goes that should make room on Spurs wage bill. Think it’s worth a fiver.

  12. craigyboy 1 year ago

    I agree Dazzler. QPR have apparently come out and said that none of their players are going anywhere. I think they are just trying to hurry up a deal so that they can get a replacement in. Im sure well have an idea whats going to happen in the next 3 or 4 hours.

  13. Dazzler 1 year ago

    Also Euros are coming up and you would say that Austin needs to be at an epl club to get in the squad. Also if Austin and Kane can hit it off, could be England’s starting pair?

  14. Dazzler 1 year ago

    Fingers crossed it’s Spurs then lol

  15. craigyboy 1 year ago

    QPR openly wanted 15m for him…someone will match that today. Austin wont want to stay.

  16. Harry 1 year ago

    Have had a bet on Austin to go to Newcastle. Makes sense considering Mitrovic always being suspended too. More just for interest than anything as there’s no decent football around anywhere tonight

  17. Johnb 1 year ago

    Harry he wants to stay south so I think Palace could sign him

  18. darran20150 1 year ago

    This deadline day it’s worse than coronation Street or EastEnders lies spoofs more lies and spoofs

  19. Mr H 1 year ago

    Sign more Scottish talent that will never get a game??? That’s a bit harsh too be fair. Delias record of giving young talented players a chance in his teams would suggest that if they come in and do the business then they will get in the team just like Armstrong and Mackay Steven. I’d rather we spent money on young Scottish talent and keep the money in our own game than go out and blow millions on fees and wages on duds like Scepovic,Borrigter,Pukki etc from Foreign shores

    You can’t win…buy foreign stars on big fees and wage’s and you’re accused of neglecting Scottish talent but if you start buying the Scottish talent you then get accused of wasting the talent

      Mr H, it’s harsh but if Celtic want to be serious about Champions League they meed to sign better players than Christie.
      He’s decent but won’t get them to the Champions League.
      Anyway off to sunny Greenock for an appointment – check in later.

  20. Bob H 1 year ago

    reports of a bloke wearing a headband (possibly Gareth Bale) walking past St Mirren park earlier!! …probably a local female going for cigs and bru

  21. yup 1 year ago

    Come on arsenal
    benzema. ?

  22. Jordan 1 year ago

    First time I can honestly admit I’m embarrassed to be a United fan. How long have these two supposed biggest clubs in the world had to get this deal done? Yet it collapses because they leave it last minute trying to save a few pounds/euros? Absolute shambles. If his head wasn’t in the right place to play for us before, he’ll be needing a quack until January now. BWIN are yet to settle my bet still. Probably not the best bookmaker to place it with haha

    • maccathered 1 year ago

      united are not the biggest clubs in the world fans just think they are.

  23. rensen 1 year ago

    De Gea deal is definetly off.

  24. rensen 1 year ago

    Real Madrid say they did everything they could to sign Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea, after missing the deadline by two minutes.

    The 24-year-old’s £29m deal and that of Keylor Navas going the other way fell through with Real saying United took eight hours to reply to contracts.

  25. Gunner 1 year ago

    Real could have got the deal done if they wanted too. Think they got cold feet and it makes sense to rather sign De Gea on a free next year. They had a poll and the fans said they’d rather have Navas for now anyways

  26. Mr H 1 year ago

    No arguments three Mr F….Delia described it perfectly. Celtic are a Champions League sized club with a Europa League squad. Christie is just another example of Celtics transfer policy these days. They value the potential profit just as much as potential talent which is great for the balance sheet but it also affects the teamsheet and I think the dwindling crowds reflect this. When Martin Oniel was the manager my season ticket was £550 per season which was a lot but watching Larsson,Lambert,Lennon,Sutton,Thompson,Hartson,Petrov,Mjallby,Balde every week was worth every penny. Would I pay that money too watch them now? Probably not. But that’s the financial environment we are in now without the extra revenue the old firm fixtures and extra numbers on the turnstiles creates. It will be that way until Rangers return and then there is a need too strengthen the squad. No disrespect too the like is Aberdeen and Hearts amongst others but they won’t win the league . They can compete over 90 mins but they can’t do it over the distance. The squad size with strength in depth and financial gulf are just too wide. Celtic are spending within their means because they don’t need too spend the big fees on the Hartsons,Suttons and Lennons of the world too be dominant in Scotland. Until Rangers return too a level both financially and technically Celtic won’t change the signing policy and that in turn will affect the European performances so it will continue too be Europa League standard players at Celtic.

    That takes us too your question the other day about the financial factor limiting potential champions league winners….money doesn’t guarantee success but it gives you a better chance than those with less money

  27. HullShaker 1 year ago

    See Austin’s just tweeted suggesting he’ll be staying at QPR.

    West Ham done dome decent business today IMO.

  28. rensen 1 year ago

    6PM uk deadline.

      Mr Fixit 1 year ago

      rensen, midnight in Scotland. Rangers could still get De Gea and Celtic might land Berahino if no one else does. Hearts favourites for Berbatov but that might go to 11.59pm before he agrees to £5k a week and a bedsit in Gorgie.

  29. rensen 1 year ago

    Edison Cavani in London reports of Arsenal have had an offer accepted pending a medical.

  30. rensen 1 year ago

    Tyler Blackett will do well for Celtic.Very strong central defender with pace something that celtic needed in that position.

  31. Nick 1 year ago

    Ibarbo’s signed for Watford on loan, looks like everybody’s going to be using Watford on Fifa 16!

  32. rensen 1 year ago

    BBC2 5.15PM Deadline news until the end at 6pm.

  33. Nick 1 year ago

    Henry’s reaction to the Martial signing haha

  34. Jordan 1 year ago

    Hope he’s good in goal! :)

  35. Jordan 1 year ago

    Is it me or is Jim White unable to talk at a normal tone without shattering eardrums?

  36. Wato 1 year ago

    Jordan I don’t tend to notice him much with her sitting beside him 😉

  37. Jordan 1 year ago

    Wato he’s hard to ignore. Had to turn the tv down and couldn’t hear anyone else when they spoke :)

  38. Jordan 1 year ago

    I said I’d be surprised if Stabaeks Adama Diomande didn’t make a big move by the end of the window. Hull City have a goalscorer there!

    • Nick 1 year ago

      Akpom, Hernandez and Diomande.
      There’s definitely going to be goals there!

  39. darran20150 1 year ago

    Jordan non whites a rangers fan you see

  40. nathan ufton 1 year ago

    I know its a bit late to post my thoughts on deadline day transfers and transfers in general but nobody seems to of picked up on a really simple dealbreaker for players.
    When a player gets a taste of the premiership and the champagne lifestyle it brings, if they’ve had a taste of playing for a London club, then they’ve also had a taste of the VIP treatment they always get in the London nightclubs, for a 20 something year old lad ( not always single ) with a big wad of cash on his hip, all those pretty girls and they’d rather play for a QPR or Crystal Palace than a Newcastle or WBA, footballers brains tend to be in their underpants.
    To quote the much loved and missed Robin Williams : ” The problem with men is that they have a brain and a penis and only enough blood to operate one of them at a time “.

      nathan, if that was right all the top guys would be playing for Celtic or Rangers.
      It’s a bit of a leap to be honest. Some will attracted by the bright lights but not as many as in the past as it’s much more professional now.

  41. PumaDrifter 1 year ago

    Haris Vuckic from Rangers to Wigan. Step down for him :(

  42. Johnb 1 year ago

    Only a rumour but Faissal El Bakhtaoui to Hibs in the last hour of the window

      Johnb, haven’t seen that but you’ve signed striker Henri Anier on loan from Dundee Utd.
