-BANG- That was the sound of the summer transfer window closing. This year there’s been a lot of people getting sucked in and out of that window.
Lawrie Sanchez had managed to get rid of lot players in a fairly short period of time. In my eyes he’s gotten rid of some dead wood in the squad but also lost a few good players in the process. He hasn’t really brought in any big names, but still a core of quality and some decent squad players.
