The 15 ‘real winners’ of the summer transfer window
The dust has finally settled on the transfer window and it’s now time for teams to reflect on their summer business from the last couple of months. For fans of sides like Liverpool, it’s not going to make pretty viewing, but rivals Manchester United will look at Robin Van Persie’s hat-trick on Sunday and think job well done. Some managers may have needed the last couple of days simply to calm down from events on the 31st, indeed both Mark Hughes and Andre Villas-Boas had their hands full at QPR and Tottenham in trying to secure last minute deals for their clubs.
Those who competed in the transfer market this summer will certainly be hoping that they’ve done enough to make their team competitive in the coming months. There’s nothing worse than leaving your side undercooked for the challenge ahead and January all of a sudden looks a long time away for those who are struggling. Some sides will certainly be pleased with what they’ve achieved this summer though and with this in mind, we take a look at the 15 winners of the transfer window.
