Transfer Deadline Day Madness – Part 2!By: Rob | August 31st, 2010
So yeah, transfer deadline day, eh? I posted earlier with some of the deals and rumours going around – here are your headlines for what actually happened. Sort of.
Harry Redknapp spent all day telling Sky Sports News it’d be a quiet day for him, and then ten minutes before the deadline, it was revealed he was in for Real Madrid’s Rafael van der Vaart. That deal may or may not have gone through, nothings been confirmed. Redknapp is however, hopeful.
Birmingham had a busy day, signing Alex Hleb, Martin Jiranek and Jean Beausejour, to make them look even stronger than before. Sunderland meanwhile broke their club transfer record to sign World Cup star Asamoah Gyan.
Ryan Babel went on a Helicopter trip South, causing Sky Sports News to go into speculation meltdown, but then he headed back up to Liverpool. Like Mark Mark Schwarzer, Scott Parker and Shay Given, he stayed where he started.
Two years after making transfer deadline day really exciting by signing for Man City, Robinho sulked off to Milan. Liverpool signed Paul Konchesky from Fulham. They missed out on Carton Cole.
I think that’s basically everything.
