I’m sorry, I can’t view this transfer window as anything but a dismal failure. Because Big GC opted not to launch bids for Gary Dicker, Rod Fanni and David Goodwillie, small time internet weblogs will be forced to recycle the same Max Power memes posted in early August! Good job everybody has forgotten about them now, eh?
Alright, they might not have crude names. But those 3,928 players parachuted from the outermost megabytes of Championship Manager 2016 are surely worth more to Wigan Athletic than a single £18m panic buy at 10.20pm.
Ahh, who cares about signings anyway? Last time I checked, you could win a football match with any old bunch of Sunday League boozers. (Insert reference to a particular Premier League season here. [Oooh, which one is he talking about?])
But now, I’m hungry. Bring on the Sheff… United, that is.

Er, ‘leaner’? This can only mean one thing: Grant Holt has been released. Into the wild, like the stallion that he is. Shaun Dyche, you’re free to call him all you like now. (Warning: some rude words in that video!)

Now you can go back to sleep until the next window opens. — Jim White
