Transfer Window Challenge

Recommended Posts

The window is closed and the challenge is over so here is the final wrap up. Remember I use fees confirmed by the club except when this isn't available. In those cases I take the figure given by The Independant Newspaper.

Incomming Transfers

We signed four players which, despite Jose saying that he only wanted three new boys, was actually the most popular prediction. Twenty-five people got that spot on but no one got the total spend of £56.4m quite right. Nearest misses were Nerazzuri with £56m and Klamm with £57m. The signings: -

Del Horno (LB) £8m

Diarra (DM) £3m

Essien (CM) £24.4m

Wright-Phillips (WM) £21m

Not suprsingly no one named Diarra as a potential signing but the other three were among the most frequently mentioned names. Essien, with twenty-two had the 3rd highest nominations, Del Horno with seventeen was 5th and SWP with fifteen was 6th. Even so no one predicted that all three would join but thirteen people did get two out of the three.

Outgoing Transfers

The most popular prediction here was five but in the end only four players left The Bridge. Eighteen entrants got that right. As for total sales, both James Devenish and TheItalianStallion went close with £21m but one person, me, actually got the exact amount of £21.6m. (Thank you, I thank you. Just call me Peter Kenyon from now on!) The sales: -

Forssell (ST) £3m

Parker (DM) £6.5m

Kezman (ST) £5.3m

Tiago (CM) £6.8m


Four seems to have been the magic number this summer because there were four of these as well. This was exactly double the the most popular forecast of two but a respectable 13 people did forecast the correct figure. The loan deals: -

Veron (CM)

Smertin (CM)

Morais (CB)

Jarosik (CM)

NB where points are equal the earlier or earliest entry is placed higher.

Honerable mention to Duffer of St Patrick for comming close to defending his title but congrtulations to god. His predictions were three signings, four sales, four out on loan, £55m to be spent and £25m to be brought in plus he named Gerrard, Maxwell and Wright-Phillips as transfer targets. Although only one of these was accurate the rest of his forecasts were either spot on or very, very close. Well played mate, you can now quite rightly claim to know more than the rest of us!
