A full round-up of the Deadline Day deals

By on September 1, 2012 - 34 views

Perhaps you could say we have been spoilt in recent years with massive moves happening on transfer deadline day. But yesterday lacked that element of silliness or surprise that makes everyone sit up and take notice. The Clint Dempsey move from Fulham to Tottenham Hotspur was the final twist in a busy yet unspectacular final day of the transfer window.

Tottenham were undoubtedly the biggest winners on Deadline Day. With Dempsey and Lloris, they have significantly improved the quality of their squad. Despite missing out on Joao Moutinho and losing Rafael van der Vaart to Hamburg, Villas-Boas will be confident his players can challenge for the top-four.

Liverpool failed to bring anyone in, something that will frustrate boss Brendan Rodgers. Their lowly offer of Clint Dempsey was a clear indication that Rodgers is paying the price for Kenny Dalglish’s overspending. Andy Carroll and Charlie Adam,two of Dalglish’s buys, left the club for West Ham (on loan) and Stoke respectively.

Manchester City finally made their move with the signings of Javi Garcia, Maicon and Scott Sinclair. Of the three, Garcia should make the biggest impact and is a higher quality replacement for the departed Nigel De Jong.

While Chelsea were getting hammered in the Super Cup by Falcao and Atletico Madrid, Michael Essien was packing his bags for Madrid as he joins old boss Jose Mourinho on loan to replace the departing Lassana Diarra.

Arsenal were highly inactive except the departure of Nicklas Bendtner who joined Juventus on loan. That is as close as Arsenal fans got to a new signing and will be disappointed with the failure of Arsene Wenger  to replace Alex Song.

Manchester United had completed all their business a couple of weeks ago and the only one to leave Old Trafford was Dimitar Berbatov who joined Fulham.
