The lack of intent to move forward has spread from the pitch through the entire club

That's another one off the books. How small a squad are we planning to run with?

Deadline night, and no-one can get on or post.

We can't even have a meltdown when for once one might be justified.

Booooo!

I know there's still a couple of hours to go, but with noises from in the club sounding as pessimistic as last year my patience has snapped. I've tried to stay patient and relatively balanced, but as the days have gone on, the impending disappointment that's been clearly obvious all summer has finally engulfed me.

Frankly I'm thoroughly, thoroughly embarrassed by my club tonight. You can make whatever excuses you want about Pulis's scouting, the takeover and having to ship out deadwood, however we have been thoroughly amateurish throughout this whole summer. From the farcical Berahino stance when it's quite clear he won't deliver anything until he walks away for nothing in June, to the desperate switching between any target that would listen today, only to completely faff everything up by failing to get bids signed off or done in time. We have come across as a small time club playing at being in the big leagues, and unfortunately I think this year there will be no more papering over the cracks.

We have known our squad's shortcomings for 12 months, after the car crash that was last summer, and the similarly epic non-event that was January we should have had targets lined up, contact made and a concise plan for this summer. Regardless of the takeover's intentions, we know what guaranteed income we'd have and we should have already long signed off our spending budgets so that any takeover income would only supplement it. Instead we've lumbered through a comatosed summer of inactivity and which has ended with a Watford cast off and someone we rejected 3 months ago on last minute free transfer.

We're the only club in the PL in the West Midlands, with the largest ever influx of TV money and we've still been outdone by our neighbours. This should have been our chance to put some clear daylight between us and them and make sure it'll be years until they can come near us again, however I think we may well be swapping places with at least one of them come May.

Looking around the rest of the PL, I'm struggling to see another club that's had a worse summer than us, and 3 with worse squads. We've been thoroughly outperformed by Crystal Palace, Watford, Swansea and even fucking Bournemouth... The same fucking Bournemouth and Swansea that have almost dropped out of the football league and been wound up for bankruptcy since we first went up with Megson! The same Crystal Palace that only came up a couple of years ago after almost going bust, and the same fucking Watford that have been in administration TWICE since we last got promoted.

I hope I regret this post, I hope the club pulls something out of the bag in the next couple of hours because right now I'm damn close to ramming my season ticket up Williams' Lai and Peace's collective sphincters and fucking off to watch Stourbridge every week!

To be accepted by the FA?
Seem to remember as long as the buying club could prove intent to sign the player it was ok.
So could the medical wait till after 23:00 for example ?
Onions.
