So here we are again, its not that long ago I was here throughout the Andrey Arshavin saga. Well, thats what it feels like anyway.
You can get all the rumours, confirmation of signings and general deadline day talk right here on The Goon Blog.
The most likely signings are Blaise Matuidi and Marouane Chamakh and the most likely departure is one Philippe Senderos who at one point, had a sealed move to Everton.
The media will be screaming at us to strengthen after Sp*rs have delved into the transfer market yet again and sealed the signing of Kranjar a one time Arsenal target.
Vermaelen has been our only arrival but a class arrival, he has not put a step wrong so far this season. Another arrival like that wouldn’t go amiss. My preference is DM cover for Song who has the ACN in January/February.
Let the madness commence…

00:00am: Rumours about Matuidi have re-emerged and its thought he is worth in the region of 6-8 million. We need another midfielder as cover for Song. There is nothing on Chamakh so far but Wenger returning with a take it or leave it offer to Bordeaux for him would not surprise me.
00:15am: We will see what the morning headlines and press have to offer within the next hour. Meanwhile the Eduardo row is getting stupid now. UEFA are treating him like a naughty schoolboy “There are no exceptional circumstances that would justify a plea for mercy.” Oh please. They will have the cane out or have him up on a murder charge next.
Meanwhile….the Croatian football president has gone starko.
00:45am: Goal.com reports that St. Etienne must lower their valuation of Matuidi for a deal to be done. Hardly reliable though.
01:05am: Commenter going under the name of Dave Walsh has said Chamakh has been sighted in London:
friend of mine who works in a top london hotel spotted Gazidas with chamakh.so hopefully something will happen.
Treat that as you want. As â€˜Daveâ€™ hasnâ€™t returned I wouldnâ€™t take it as gospel!
01:17am: Just so you know, UEFA meet to discuss the fate of Eduardo today. The Daily Mail have stuck up a ludicrous article â€˜naming and shamingâ€™ divers in the English game. No mention of Rooney or Gerrardâ€¦ Fancy that? Cretins.

02:00am: Right, i’m going to get some sleep now whilst its quiet. It may well be a very different story at 7-8am tomorrow morning!

07:53am: I’m back and there is not much new news for us yet I am afraid. I wouldn’t fear though because the less the press pick up on the better for us price wise. Looks like Pompey are going to go barmy today though, will they go for Senderos I wonder?
08:25am: John Cross – The Mirror’s chief sports writer has heard from an agent that the international transfer window is now closed so no deals from outside of the UK can be done. Not sure that is quite correct…
