Update: Transfer Deadline Day!!
I’ve been there…it kind of is.
UPDATE: It looks like Deuce is on his way to Spurs- I’m totally fine with that. Not as much of a jump “up” as I might have liked, but at least it’s not the mess that is Anfield.
No moves at the County.
Here I am with the day off from work and ready to report all of the transfer deadline day moves that are of interest here at The Tanner Ba’ and…nothing. Alright, maybe not nothing, but pretty damn close so far. Here is the very little bit of news that I can report to you.
- Ross County F.C. have made no moves and the rumor is that they are not planning on making any. That’s fine, I guess. I’m all for financial prudence, maintaining team chemistry, and the general “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” mentality that Derek Adams has pursued as manager. That being said, I won’t be shocked if a couple of out of contract free agents are signed in the next few days.
- Maurice Edu and Charlie Adam to Stoke City are done deals. Once again, stay away from Ryan Shawcross during training. I kin of admire Stoke and their anti-football if only because it drives the likes of Arsene Wenger absolutely batty. Well done, Mr. Pulis!
- Rangers are aggressively trying to sign players ahead of their impending transfer ban- where the hell is the money coming from?! Wasn’t the club dead broke about five minutes ago?
- No news on Clint Dempsey (not going to Villa, folks, calm down) or on Carlos Bocanegra- c’mon boys, get it sorted!
I’ll be back periodically (I hope) with breaking news…
