Let's play a game, shall we?

The Telegraph has a random transfer rumor generator called the Babb.

This is what I got when I put Arsenal in:

"PAULINHO AGREES BLOCKBUSTER DEAL WITH ARSENAL FOR A FEE RUMOURED TO BE £55.4M"

And when I typed Dortmund:

"GERARD PIQUE POISED FOR SHOCK MOVE TO BORUSSIA DORTMUND FOR A FEE RUMOURED TO BE £45.2M"



So give it a go. What's the best transfer rumor you can come up with?

holy shit!

Borussia Dortmund have announced the signing of Gonzalo Castro from Bundesliga rivals Bayer Leverkusen.

Dortmund have triggered the €11 million release clause in Castro's contract to secure the midfielder on a four-year deal.

"We are delighted to have signed Gonzalo Castro -- an experienced, technically skilled midfielder, who can be used in different positions," said Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc.

Castro joined Leverkusen as a 12-year-old in 1999 and has made nearly 300 Bundesliga appearances for the side.

The 27-year-old, who has won five caps for Germany and was also linked to Bayern Munich, is the first signing for Thomas Tuchel, who will replace Jurgen Klopp as Dortmund coach this summer.

On Saturday, Dortmund secured a seventh-placed Bundesliga finish which secures them Europa League qualification due to their appearance in this season's DFB Pokal final.

So today (February 2) is the day that winter transfer window closes. And let's face it, summers transfers are way more fun and worrying.

But anyway, what are your thoughts about this window? Has your club signed someone useful (or useless)? Have they missed out on any special player that you had your eye on? Any news/hopes/dreams about summer transfers? And while we're on the subject, what were the best transfers made by your club? Any shocking ones? Ones that made you weep or cheer or laugh?

There are tissues for tears and champagne for celebration available (silly, I know.)




Something worth reading (and I agree):

How much does the January transfer deadline day matter?

To keep track of things:

The Telegraph's live thread for deadline day.

The Independent's live thread.

The Guardian's live thread.

The BBC's live thread.

Also, if you're bored, let's make this a regular FFA.

And also:



Some other news:

- Bug Eyes (aka Mesut Özil) will be back for the FA Cup match against Brighton!

- Jorge Mendes (ugh) claims that Crispy almost signed for Arsenal but we couldn't his transfer fee because of the construction of the Emirates Stadium.



- Arsenal Ladies have signed Vicky Losada from Barca! She's won the Women's La Liga (Superliga) thrice with them and is a member of the Spanish Women's NT!

- Arsenal are reportedly hoping to get Asier Illarramendi from Real Madrid in the summer.

- They have also supposedly launched a bid for Borussia Dortmund's Kevin Großkreutz. (Utter bullshit, but it would be nice to see BFG and Le Döner-Thrower together again.)

The January transfer window has opened and already there has been plenty of movement. In my attempt to not cry about Stevie I decided to make a post.

feel free to use this post to cry or celebrate any transfer )

There's still a way to go until the window closes (February 2), so be ready for the stream of rumors you will hear.

Some news!

Inter Milan has officially signed Xherdhan Shaqiri!



Also:

Lukas Podolski has revealed Arsene Wenger declined to even say goodbye before he completed his loan move from Arsenal to Inter last week.

Podolski elected to join the Nerazzurri for the rest of the season after becoming disillusioned with a lack of opportunities at the Emirates Stadium this season, having made just 13 appearances in all competitions.

And the Germany international, who scored 19 goals in 60 appearances over two years at Arsenal but never managed to gain the trust of Wenger as a regular starter, has now accused the Frenchman of a lack of respect.

"He said nothing to me," Podolski told the Sun. "He did not call me or say goodbye.

"I don't need flowers or a kiss from him. But it is about respect, about saying goodbye. For me respect is important. Maybe he had other problems with me.

"I did everything for the club I possibly could have. I don't believe I did anything wrong. I did not get drunk in a club.

"I wish all of Arsenal and their amazing fans the very best for this season and I see myself as a Gunner. Nothing from him to me, though, but that is his way."


I don't know what to say but this is The Sun that's reported this so I won't believe it fully.

Also, I was going to do a transfer rumor roundup but I've fallen sick so I hope y'all don't mind waiting.
