I admit it, this is one of the most pointless threads ever started. But I'm bored at work as I'm sure a lot of you are - just waiting to hear who ID has pulled out of the proverbial hat. So... vote - when will we announce our deadline day signing(s)?

Extra points for correctly guessing the exact time and name of said player.

I hate to say this, but I don't think we will be signing anyone.

unfortunately, and i would loved to be proved wrong. But i don't think we are going to sign anyone today

davematt think you could be true and if you are not true it is not going to be any half big names. It is dissapointing after seeing Inamoto etc go to WBA for so cheap but we have to stop moaning and get on with what we have at our club

I think we will sign one or two new players at about 6pm.

It is vital we get at least 3 in before the deadline, but unfortunately it is looking more and more unlikely.

I'm praying for a central midfielder, Petit perhaps? But may just have to settle for Bothroyd up front

Brian Potter

I'd have liked to have had one in the bag by now. It's unlikely that we'll unveil 3 or 4 together, later.

Not being pessimistic. I would love us to sign some players, but it seems that we have run out of time. I just hope ID can keep us in touch with the rest come January, then we could maybe spend some serious money.

Brian Potter
31-08-2004, 11:51 AM
Couldn't we get them on loan and tie the rest up in January (excuse my ignorance of how it all works)?

Bunsen Honeydew

I suspect, if we sign no one else, we will 'anounce' the signing of the bloke who's on trial (Fernandez?). I've been walking around all day with one eyebrow raised, but it doesn't seem to be doing any good, and I'm getting quite tired now!

Can't believe 60% of people recon we're nay going to sign anyone! I predict announcement at 4.32 of Fernandez, Ventola and Sorando deals.

I would imagine, not unnaturally, that for the last couple of days everyone has been sworn to secrecy and some wheeling 'n dealing has been going on behind closed doors.

I think 3 signings will be announced, one of whom will be a jaw-dropper, between 6pm - midnight.

If no players sign will there be a revolt?

I think maybe Sorondo and that's it, around 5pm announced on official website.

Of course he doesn't know anymore than the rest of us. I would hazard a guess that the vague replies he has been giving are nothing more than attempts to increase his standing in the BBS 'hierarchy' of those 'In the Know'.

(or he may have just been replying to the 'Man Utd News' comment)

If it is a late deal tonight (or a 'late, late late deal' as ID might say) then it's conceivable it won't be made public until tomorrow morning.

I reckon we have pretty much signed 3 players, all to be revealed after 5pm. Unfortunately this is just a guess, no inside info.

What a sad life you must have. Thinking about when an announcement will be made. It won't happen, so don't hold your breath. Dowie's already said what a frustrating time it's been in the transfer market - hence we won't get anybody.

What I mean is that the club are going to need up to midnight to get deals through as they are still negotiating at the moment and there is a fair way to go

If they were cash purchases, they only needed to be at the FA by 3.30pm - doesn't mean we need to annouce it to the world at that time.

We may be trying to tie up some loan signings also, and may want to announce all the days signings in one go.

Pure speculation, but a possibility.

no - but as someone said above, I guess they are either freebies or loan signings as we have missed cash deadline, so that would maybe rule out Clement?

Fair enough. Sounds like the usual last minute panic then.

By the way, do you know Piper from HOL ? He seems to be their man in the know and if you are ours, I wondered if you knew each other...

Well, judging by CG's record, this probably kills the what's the deadline problem too? Midnight seems obvious to me. I should probably get on with the day now... (Hey, it's 8am where I am, so I've got an excuse!)

Oh, so 3.30 definately is the cash one? Wouldn't stop us from doing a loan-with-view to purchase though, right?

31-08-2004, 03:05 PM
Cash deals arn't 15.30,

Rooney hasn't signed for Man Utd yet, but there still talking!

Sky sports said 12 tonight!

31-08-2004, 03:12 PM
At least thats something.

Oxford Eagle
31-08-2004, 03:13 PM
surely, with these deals you can structure a purchase so that if you miss the deadline it is a loan until the end of the season and then a purchase? So the 3:30 wont matter?

GloverUK
31-08-2004, 03:15 PM
It said on 5 Live that any signings had to be done by 3.30 pm to be valid, but loan signings had to be completed by midnight. As we have seen nothing, i guess there are noe.:grrr: :veryangry :bash:

Surely Sarondo, Ventola would have to be completed by 5pm as they are cross-border? Can't wait for the 'eyebrow raiser'!

Lets just hope Palace know exactly whats going on with the deadlines, I dont have a frigging clue.

lordanton
31-08-2004, 03:59 PM
I'm guessing, Manu Petit, Sorondo and Ventola are coming then. Manu on a free, the other on one year loans. Maybe Kily, whos deal to Espanyol fell through is one of the loanees. Unfortunately this is just a guess.

What?
31-08-2004, 04:05 PM
If your guesses were true that would be awsome.

joshua
31-08-2004, 04:17 PM
remember if petit was on the cards, or any unattached player for that matter, it doesnt have to be done today, so id guess if we sign him it will be later in the week, while dowie concentrates on any players we`r in for that are at clubs, which need to be compleated today.

I thought Premiership sides could not sign or loan any player, uncontracted or contracted, once the window shuts.

Worried that Dowie will not sign his contract as a result and the world will end in May 2005 after the Charlton game.

If Dowie goes as a result of not getting financial backing by his chairman, it's a one way ticket back to the dark ages. :( :sob: :veryangry

on a positive note, if we were to sign a few players surely we would only have time to release all this information in one go? Rather than individual statements etc at differing times of the day, even more so if some of the negotiations are still being thrashed out.
