The window is closing...

Slightly earlier than the midnight deadline I know but unless anything out of the ordinary happens over the next half an hour it looks to a decidedly anti-climatic deadline day for both City and the Premiership as a whole with not too many noteworthy signings.

In fact, trying to cobble together a post to look at an 'All transfer window XI' side was proving largely uninspiring as it resembled West Ham's attempt to shore up a defence, a couple of rookie midfielders and strikers less prolific than our very own.

So, rumours of Mido, John, Konchesky, Etherington et al appear to have amounted to nothing with only Michael Ball as a beat the deadline signing. Looking at the players that have moved, there isn't a great deal that would have significantly upgraded our side - and those that may have done seem to be priced out of reach by transfer fee and/or likely wages.

Disappointing that we didn't ultimatey land a striker, and somewhat frustrating that rumours of Andrew Cole looking for a move out of Portsmouth already due to a lack of games. How a fully fit Cole would improve the side that we are turning out at the moment eh?
