The 2015-16 summer transfer window closes tomorrow at 6pm on Tuesday September 1.
Instead of the usual 11pm deadline for the closure of the summer transfer window, it has been moved to 6pm which for folks like me, means we won’t be up until the early hours of the morning waiting to see which transfers did get through and didn’t get through with all the stipulations and loopholes that seem to exist that allow players to be confirmed and registered what feels like three weeks after the deadline was supposedly shut.
So, Sky Sports producers won’t get as itchy a set of feet as they might, should they still have their roving reporters out at training grounds, come the deadline at 6pm as they are unlikely to have to deal with as many beered up giggly idiots – or the associated marital aides – when humour stoops to levels of swearing on live television.
Ever a silver lining eh!
I think this has been the busiest transfer window since I’ve been the editor of Vital Norwich and although I love the transfer speculation, I can’t help but look forward to a bit of a rest. For the first time in two months, I’ll be able to put my phone down.
The deadline was moved to September 1st owing to August 31 being a Bank Holiday and League regulations stipulate that the deadline cannot fall on a non working day.
