Transfer window: 24 hours to go

  • After today's moves, I don't know what else we'll see coming in tomorrow. I think we could still move for another striker - with left back and goalkeeper outside options. Hughes was typically non-commital in his post match interviews. But did seem to leave open the possibility of a deal or two tomorrow (see comments below).
  • The most likely deal to happen is the sale of Vedran Corluka to Spurs. Hughes made his strongest comments yet concerning the likelihood of the deal, and even that he wanted it to go through. "Those things need to be resolved and come to a conclusion. At the end of the day, we are still trying to build the club, trying to bring good players to the club who will make us better." Posters on bluemoon say Charlie threw his shirt into the fans and waved goodbye at the end. But after the events of three weeks ago, I won't believe anything until it's official.
  • I've done some looking for info on Glauber Berti, and have found almost nothing. He made 19, 20 and 12 starts in his three years at FC Nurnberg. Having joined on only a one year deal, I'm not sure how integral a role he will play. Would be nice to see him at Brighton though.
  • Someone who will be playing in Germany this year is Thiago Neves. The money we gave them for Kompany has been used against us - his move is now official.
