Still no new players to bolster the squad. Some fans have become a little nervous, tetchy…. frustrated. So I thought I’d compare our dealing with the rest of the Premier League, in the hope of finding out if other teams have also been inactive in trading (data is from Sky Sports).
Good news! 3 other clubs have yet to make a signing, Aston Villa, Blackburn Rovers and Tottenham Hotspur. Leading the way is Sunderland with five new faces at the Stadium of Light.
But… as many have pointed out, comparing in’s and out’s is a tad pointless as you have to take into context the existing squad sizes. So another little fact finding mission and here are the totals for the squad sizes. Totals include players on loan, but not if a player is being loaned out e.g. If we loaned Almond out our squad size would be 1 less.
Just to make the blog pretty here’s a nice little graph.
erm….. right thats’s not made me feel much better. Time for another beer.
EDIT : Not good, Blackpool have 20 not 21 as Sky still have McPhee counted.
