Also I'm baffled at how much business Sheffield Wednesday seem to be doing.

They've not long confirmed Marriott on loan.

They're getting Flint on loan too.

Sheffield Wednesday are buying survival that in the long run will lead to another points deduction unless they stay up and get promoted next season.

I suspect that Chansiri have probably sold the Leppings Lane Stand at Hillsborough to Derby for a fiver who then installed ten new 60w light bulbs, had it revalued as a "potential" Concert Arena now worth £50m, rented it back to the Owls at 50p a month and then split the £50m difference with £25m each hence allowing plenty of wiggle room for new signings while still meeting the EFL Financial requirements.

Benhrama has failed his medical at west ham. That’s a huge sale Brentford miss out on. They must hope he can keep up his good form now.

I'm not so sure, haven't they got all the money from the stadium sale available to them at this moment in time. I thought the reason they got deducted points was because they tried to include the stadium sale in the wrong year to try to escape punishment but it was already too late and didn't count towards FFP measures. I think the stadium sale is now on their books and that's how and why they're able to spend now.

Yeah in short term they have that pot of money they are now spending but in long run pushes up costs that inturn goes into next period. It's unsustainable.

They are now eight points from safety and fourteen points from the Play Offs which they probably figure they can make this season if they put a run together at some point.

If we do manage to sign anyone before the 5pm deadline, will they be eligible to play tomorrow.??

Depends if all the paperwork was done before 12 today
