Final January Transfer Window Thread

Final January Transfer Window Thread

And so, the end is near... I'll stop there I think. Over 700 comments in two threads but sadly still no new signings.

This is the final January 2008 transfer window thread. I'll leave it up a few days after the window closes for shock reactions to the last minutes signings we'll make (cough cough).

There has to be at least one player arrive to make at least one rumour true surely?!

Routledge has signed...1.25 million on 18 month contract. This could be a real bargain. Seems like a smart move from MON to me

I have an idea...we all pretend the next transfer window opens on 30th Aug and closes on the 31st Aug, thus saving us loads of frustrated panic and debate.

Ha, there you go, within a minute or so of putting this thread up! Good signing, especially for the price. Still only 23. Nice young foundations being built at Villa.

I think this is a no brainer 1.25 on an 18 month contract.... That's good business if he fulfills his potentual he will be amazing for that money. 2 years agohe was be lorded as a wonder kid. but just remember winger ae notoriously bad at settleing in, remember young and the stick was starting to get about being a waste of money. Only this wont be a waste of money he and MON have nothing to loose.

Routledge is in effect a free transfer and should fill a gap if Young,Gabby are out so a great deal. Looks like Chimbonda aint coming as he starts for Spurs tonite.
