Rebecca Lowe, Robbie Mustoe and Robbie Earle sat down to talk Deadline Day earlier this evening, and discussed everything from Liverpool’s summer of buys to Hull City’s late maneuvers.

The trio make the point that if their new Italian striker can behave and stay focused, then Liverpool may well have won the window.
Though Tottenham Hotspur didn’t make a massive splash at the summer transfer deadline, doing plenty of business last summer, they did remain busy in the offseason. And today they did add sought-after Ligue 1 star Benjamin Stambouli.
Petr Cech is no longer playing first-team football for Chelsea and was granted the opportunity to leave the club. The keeper declined and wanted to remain with The Blues.
With one man on the top of the their list, Everton failed to strike a deal with Manchester United for the transfer of Tom Cleverley, causing much disappointment at Goodison Park (but really, probably not universally amongst its fans).
Reigning Premier League champions Manchester City arguably didn’t have to do much in order to stay in tip-top shape, but they did and are better off for the moves.
West Bromwich Albion is blazing a new trail in European football with the way Alan Irvine manages his club and scouts potential transfers.
Hull City brought on a few top names, getting deals done just as the transfer window was ready to slam close.
With deeps roots to his Spurs days, Harry Redknapp’s dealings brought QPR former Tottenham stud Sandro among other transfer signings.
Though he isn’t prolific goal-scorer or technical player, Danny Welbeck is a striker that brings pace to the game and is a good fit for Arsenal.
Despite the formalities of getting the deal finalized, Radamel Falcao is the newest member of Manchester United, and is a two-footed striker who can give the Old Trafford club a much-needed shot in the arm.
