    Mina and Bernard in at Everton, useful. See if they can push the Zouma loan through on time.

    Arsenal were linked with Bernard years ago will be interesting to see him actually play.

    Everton look to have done some decent business at the death. Might take a while to integrate them all into the team but fair play for showing some ambition.

    Andre Gomes on loan now too. I was hoping for another CB

    Mina looked ace in the WC. I quite fancied him as a Toby replacement to play with Sanchez like they do for Columbia, but I guess our HG challenge put pay to that.

    Liverpool clearly 'win' the window. Huge statement. THEY HAVE TO WIN SOMETHING MAJOR etc.

    Chelsea and United look ripe for implosion.

    Newcastle have had the worst window imo.

    Hopefully one more CB in the works.

    I think that late flurry sees The Ev win the window for the summer second year running.

    Zouma is on his way to Goodison too. I think we might even challenge for 6th.

    Tbh I think Silva will probably be amongst the first to be sacked.

    Bernard is an interesting one. There was some talk of him having some shady 3rd party ownership issues, which was why nobody else was snapping him up on a free. I wonder how Everton resolved that.

    Also interested to see what happens to Villa having flagrantly ignored their FFP limitations.

    Fulham poached Bryan away from Villa, even though he apparently signed a contract. Interested to see how he gets on in the PL as he was brilliant for City in the first half of the season.

    Ings and Austin must be the most injury prone forward line in the league.

    @You-can-call-me-kal Nothing I would suspect.

    Fulham have bought a new team this window.

    Not sure if the first post was in relation to the second post, but Fulham got promoted, and therefore can probably afford to spend that much without falling foul of FFP.

    Touch wood.... But seems from first looks we've bought much better this time in terms of what we actually need. Going to still need a forward but still happy with this... For now.

    Mina is a great signing. I thought it was on loan only.

    Apparently 10 deal sheets have gone in, enabling another few hours to complete

    Mina is a purchase. Gomes is a loan.

    Just need to cap this off with Usmanov and Zouma.

    60m buyback clause in the Mina deal, though Barca would also need to free up one of their Jonny foreigner slots.

    Would be an enjoyable journey to a nice problem.

    Mina looked good for Colombia however he was dreadful for his few appearances for Barca apparently. Here is a particular highlight

    I'm reassured somewhat by this background, put together before his move to Barca:

    That's just a slip.

    Did look great for Colombia.

    Well we shall see. We are not a Europa League club, let a lone a CL one so got to pay some of those prices (which given the crazy market are now the norm anyway) and take a risk. What's also important is that much of the dross has been removed.

    Going to take a while for this lot to gel. Practically a new team now; the ones they are joining weren't playing any football for two seasons.

    I'm wary that the players are new to the PL, and we've thought we've had good windows before.

    Think Liverpool, Wolves and Fulham have signed well this window, but let's see how they all gell. Citeh should still win with room to spare.

    Quite. It's going to take some time. Just as long as during the process it isn't players all out of position and passing backwards.

    Nah, just find it strange they have gone that route instead of just a few additions to bolster what they have.
