I Love Transfer Day Deadline Insanity

Daley_Blind_6013

Christmas in September. The EPL transfer window closes at the end of the day and with it brings a slew of rumors, negotiations, hopes, dreams, and tears. Or if you’re an Arsenal fan… it just reaffirms your anger towards stagnation. 

Here are my thoughts on the final day of the transfer window:

I think Manchester United made some great moves on the last day. Everyone will look at the Falcao deal is their major signing but I think signing Daley Blind from Ajax fills a major need for the club. Their defensive unit with Evans, Jones, Blackett and defensive mids has been a joke. Blind can fill in a defensive mid position, center back, or outside back and immediately make them better on the pitch. Offloading Hernandez was another positive move for a player who wouldn’t see much time considering the team’s lack of competitions this season. Bring back a healthy Luke Shaw, with Di Maria, Rooney, and Falcao and United are now back in the hunt. As a Liverpool supporter this makes me want to vomit. 

Arsenal signing Danny Welbeck is a decent signing. I think they are overpaying for him and he has been average for Manchester United. However losing Giroud puts Arsenal in a situation of dire need as Sonogo doesn’t look to be able to carry the load of both domestic and European competition. Its a little surprising that Man U would let a decent player go to a Premier League Rival. 

Actually like what Hull City is doing on the market. At only 24 years old, Abel Hernandez could be a big reason they are able to avoid relegation as he really came into his own last season with Palermo finding the net 14 times in 28 appearances. Combine that signing with Mohamed Diamme in the midfield, they are certainly adding strength and depth to a squad that is already competitive. Towards the end of the window they also solidified a season long loan of Gaston Ramirez and Hatem Ben Arfa. Hull City could definitely be a team to be reckoned with after the international break.
