Premier League Extends Transfer Window

Premier League Extends Transfer Window

Wednesday 19 August 2009: The Premier League have released a statement regarding the deadline for the summer transfer window.

The statement reads...

'The Premier League confirms that the summer transfer window will close at 5pm on Tuesday 1st September.'

'The summer transfer window is scheduled to close on the final day of August but, following normal Premier League guidelines, it has been put back because 31st August falls on a Bank Holiday.'


Who will ever forget last seasons eleventh hour Robinho signing? My keyboards F5 button has never been the same since that memorable night.

What is the point of extending it? Why not finish the window on the Friday 28th at 5pm? Clubs have had all summer to sort out their transfers. Another few days just gives the tabloids more time for gossip and speculation. Whatever day is the final day will have the managers frantically ringing round to finalise last minute panic buys. It is like 24th December when us blokes realise it is time to buy the wife something. Get it over with and let's get on with the season!

I doubt that it'll be of any consequence to City as the only transfer that we are linked with at the moment is Lescott and I would either expect this deal to have been completed or be dead in the water before the end of the transfer window.

The extension is to give fergie enough time to check down the back of all of the sofas at the swamp to see if he has enough cash for another Michael Owen type signing.
