With the excitement of Friday's deadline day now well and truly behind us, it's finally time to let the football do the talking.
That is until January of course, when the window opens for the rather less eventful winter transfer period.
Generally this time is used by clubs to fill slots in the team that need urgent replacing. It's uncommon to see too many "Hollywood moves", instead trending more towards slightly more down to earth signings that come to a club amongst far less press coverage.
This article will effectively pre-empt the players that United will want (or perhaps even need) to sign in the January window if they are to bring back their 20th League title to Old Trafford.
It is, of course, very early days to thinking about something that is still a fair few months away. But it's always good and usually imperative to plan ahead in football.
If it wasn't for Fergie taking an early interest in this time of the year, United may never have been able to sign Nemanja Vidic or Patrice Evra, who have both been stalwart servants of the club since their arrival in the January of 2006.
So who could be on there way to Old Trafford this time around?
