That’s it from us Arsenal are done, no movement. Onwards and upwards, see you at Anfield. COYG!
Wanted to keep you all updated but absolutely nothing today, nada. Surprised and disappointed. For me we needed 2/3, but 1 at very least.
BREAKING: Michael Essien has officially signed a season-long loan with Real Madrid. Arsenal and Everton were interested -W.
TRANSFER WINDOW CLOSED
Under 3 minutes…
Essien to Real Madrid year-long loan agreed. Only problem is terms. RM want CFC to pay part of wages; CFC unwilling.
Michael Owen says he won’t join a club tonight. Owen can sign for a side at any time because he’s a free agent
Not sure about that one, but it’s nice to dream!

Can we all just take a moment to celebrate a Premier League without Joey Barton?
QPR sign Stephane Mbia from Marseille on two-year deal
Looks like Moutinho is staying at Porto. Unlucky spuds.
Marseille sign Joey Barton from QPR on a season-long loan
Looks like N’zonzi is off to Stoke, with Wilson Palacios leaving. Tom Huddlestone heavily linked with a move to Fulham as part of Dempsey deal, 20 minutes to go.
So who’s looking forward to January then?
Supporting Arsenal on deadline day is like your at a nightclub where everyone’s making out and your stood in the corner scratching your nuts.
Fulham had also hoped to bring in Wilson Palacios from Stoke City but may not get done in time now.
Blackpool have signed Nathan Delfouneso on a season long loan from Villa.
Huddlestone set to leave Spurs tonight.
Lee Clark has got to be the most boring man in the world. #FACT
I felt we all need some humour… If we don’t laugh we’ll cry!

West Ham close to signing Chelsea’s Yossi Benayoun on loan
#MUFC have confirmed to me they WILL NOT sign anymore players tonight. Cabaye deal has broke down.
Fee for Dempsey is £6m and he signs a three-year deal.
Less than 1 hour to go!
What the transfer deadline gives you is a clear indication of which are the badly run football clubs!!!
Comment via Jean: M’Vila to QPR Another good one gone. Who else are we going to miss out as we are too busy trying to save money.
Sky Sources: Clint Dempsey agrees terms with Tottenham
If Essien did ever Cum Arsenal I wud be the happiest man In the world my role Model. Love him
West Ham and Chelsea have now reached an agreement to sign Yossi Benayoun on a season long loan deal
Dempsey having medical at Spurs.
Am not having John obi playing in front of Essien That’s a bloody joke
Hearing rumours that Michael Dawson might be needing an estate agent in the morning. More when we have it…
BREAKING: West Brom swoop for Dynamo Kiev left-back Goran Popov, who joins on a season-long loan.
Man City have signed Matija Nastasic from Fiorentina.
In other news Chelsea are still losing… yay!
Sorry I just needed a moment to digest that, It didn’t go down to well!
Looks like Dempsey is a spud.
Reports that Clint Dempsey is at Spurs Lodge!
We’re hearing that Real Madrid could be a likely destination for our deadline day target Michael Essien. That shows his class, still rated by many.
Christian Benteke has signed for Aston Villa.
Chelsea score, some geezer… Not important.
Anyone understand Russian? Apparently it says Arshavin is staying… http://www.championat.com/football/news-1295821-arshavin-ne-pokinet-arsenal-vo-vremja-letnego-transfernogo-okna.html
Incoming transfer news imminent at The Hawthorns
We understand Joe Cole will not be leaving Liverpool.
Sky Sources: Fulham agree deal with Club Brugge for midfielder Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe. He’s passed a medical & is discussing personal terms
60th minute and Chelsea are 4-0 down. Miranda with the goal, wasn’t he a Pro Evo master league standard player?
Liverpool Sign Bent!
Just under 2 hours to go…
I have been told Liverpool have no money – and there will be no additions to the Liverpool squad tonight, unless anything amazing happens
Is a last minute bid for Dempsey on the cards… I bloody hope so!
There’s no doubt that Fulham would accept £7 million for Clint Dempsey… 23 goals last season, £7m is a steal!
Sky Sources: Liverpool’s bid for Clint Dempsey was £4m & club refuse to offer higher. Aston Villa bid £5m plus £2m add-ons
It could be a bit of an anti-climax for all tonight… What I am saying? It’s transfer deadline day, something mad is bound to happen!
Feeling sorry for Petr Cech. Shambolic, godawful display by Chelsea, who’re playing a friendly against a team that wants to win a trophy.
Falcao Hat-Trick. No doubt the best number 9 in the world! Chelsea 3-0 down before half-time!
BBC Sport reporting no incoming transfer at Liverpool tonight, looks as though Dempsey deal is off!
Don’t want to be grumpy but shit biscuits! We are lighter than Victoria Beckham up front.
It’s official, I am back in Germany! Looking forward to great years with HSV!
Some great work from this Arsenal fan earlier today, hijacking the Spurs party outside the Lodge!
It’s looking extremely unlikely that we will gain any additions tonight… 2 hrs 45 to go!
That embarrassing moment when the CL winners are 2-0 down to the Europa league wins! #Fail
Arsene actually had the chance to buy Falcao for £2M when he was at Boca Juniors. But he had no work permit, so we pulled out. *Sigh*…
Everton have completed the signing of Bryan Oviedo on 4-year deal from FC Copenhagan…
Falcao!! Stunning goal, snap him up Arsene! 2-0
Sturridge turned down Liverpool – not Chelsea. Liverpool wanted a one year loan while Sturridge wanted permanent switch. He’s not happy.
My understanding is that Arsenal were offered Essien – and not the other way round. They politely declined but was never on today’s agenda.
At least Chelsea are losing!
Hearing from a inside source that Arsenal had a bid accepted for Cabeye for £8m plus Ramsey. Ramsey didn’t want to leave and deal called off
Any thoughts or our inactivity?
Looks as though our day is done Gooners.

How do you feel about the potential loan signing of Michael Essien?
TSJoke: Arsenal will sign ‘A Profit’ by 11pm!
Again, Arsenal news is quiet, Essien is the biggest chance of a signing. He is NOT in the Chelsea Super Cup squad and has NOT travelled! Could be movement!
It’s starting to hot up now, we can’t work out why Fulham have rejected the bid, time for some digging!

By action we mean some Arsenal fans are going to get seriously rowdy outside the Emirates if we don’t sign anyone!
We are confident of some action tonight…
