I’m so excited we signed Harvey Elliott I forgot for a second we finally signed a decent left back!

The only thing that can ruin my weekend is playing a crap team with a new manager...oh wait

Perm

Fisher was on loan at mk Don's for part of last season and signed as a no2 to nicholls. Must have done ok for them to want him but clearly not ready for championship

I know I’m a positive person but today’s deals have totally blown me away! I could never have envisaged such personnel arriving and even getting Mulgrew to sign for Fleetwood!

I’ m sure every club wants to strengthen during the window but I can’t think of another club in our league who has done as well as us.

Time for a little bet on the top 6 at least.

Summary of other clubs:

Cardiff got Dillon Phillips

Millwall bagged Zohore on loan

Forest loaned Knockheart

Cardiff loaned Harry Wilson (odd fit in my book)

Swansea loaned Palmer (odd same division loan for someone Bristol spent quite a bit on)

Those are the bigger ones, have I missed any?

Some really good signings there. Swansea have also signed a young defender from City, are in talks with free agent Fabio Borini and have sold Joe Rodon to Spurs.

Cardiff have made a couple of very good signings.

Not sure Trybull is better than Johnsons current form, plus Rothwell has been immense so far in midfield. Fckin hell its hard to pick a team right now.

I think us, Forest and Cardiff have been the biggest movers in the transfer window. When you look through Forests squad its just wow. Cardiff, not so much but they have brought in some good players but i dont think they were the right club for Wilson (probably the only one willing to stump up for him).

Something had to give and I always felt it would be Fisher. Hilton is supposed to be the most rated out of our young keepers and Fisher is not really that young anymore.

Very worried by only the one centre back signing.

Didnt want to say but that is my concern also. I have said all along we needed another CB as cover - due to having a very injury-prone backline. Not complaing though, otherwise an exceptional window in my view.

If we don’t sell anyone (Fisher aside) then that’s a pretty Carlsberg window.

Love the fact we’ve gone to Liverpool with our case for Elliott. Shows our growing reputation with young players and the trust that the likes of Koop and Liverpool have in our set up.

Its clear that we are emulating our style of play on theirs - combined with a good start to the season, it is easy to see why we would be a good option for some of their young players.

I read somewhere that they essentially offered us Elliot or Wilson. Guessing finances dictated who we went for, but as you say, great to have that relationship!

Bristol City, Birmingham, ourselves, Cardiff and maybe QPR have had good windows for me. Sheffield Wednesday decent too, and Watford have done well to keep so many of their best players.

Derby and Huddersfield have had particularly strange windows. Not sure on Forest, plenty of quality but also plenty of holding midfielders and far too many bodies. That being said, their last 2 of Knockaert and Hughton are very impressive.

Preston a strange one. Very quiet but plenty of players with only a year on their contract.

Surely we won't be offering Downing a deal now 

I like him but seriously, where the hell would he fit now? I imagine if we didnt get Elliott or a similar loan, we would have taken him back.

Harvey will play. No way Liverpool would have let him come here without some kind of verbal promise that Harvey will get game time, especially as they had no intention of letting him go until TM put up a strong case. Him and Dolan will compete for the right attacking spot. 

The signings today probably spell the end for Davenport and Chapman. 

 

Maybe Evans too?
