Don’t talk to me about transfers, you have no idea how many transfers we’ve seen over the last few weeks (although, to be fair, you probably do if you’ve seen the transfer history).
Have some stats. Since last Tuesday night:
- There have been 34 transfers
- A total of £767,936,000 has changed hands
- Two transfers have broken the £100m mark
Managers are improving and reinforcing their squads all over the place.
New boys Border Wanderers have stated their intent by offloading T_Kehrer to OPK for a cool £100m and starting their recruitment process with a robust £55m acquisition of B_Pavard from Farsley Celtic (this transfer is still outstanding – I’ll process it tonight). Farsley have also offloaded another young talent, J_Kimmich, for a handy £50m. I’m going to run out of adjectives to describe money soon.
Farsley have also been busy splashing the cash, spending a combined £125m on three CSKA Tulse Hill players and two youth prospects.
Opulent Knack have been coining it in, with £40m from Clapton Crusaders for K_Davies but most notably a huge £135m from Tulse Hill Superior for the defensive services of the Ginger Wizard, Alexi Lalas.
Can we get to a billion in a calendar week? There’s still a few hours still to go…
Bit of an aggressive opening paragraph there, sorry about that.
