With an enthralling weekend of football rounded off once again, week by week we draw ever closer to the reopening of the transfer window. For some managers, the window is meaningless; going to the dentist is a bigger priority. Especially if you're Tito Vilanova, whose Barcelona side currently sit at the top of La Liga, nine points clear of second-placed Atletico Madrid with their clasico rivals Real Madrid a massive 13 points adrift.
However, for the likes of Arsene Wenger, Jurgen Klopp and Rafa Benitez, they know that it's an important month, and with several of the biggest clubs in Europe struggling for form, it could be the biggest January transfer window yet in terms of expenditure.
Chelsea will be desperate to strengthen their squad after their disappointing 1-0 defeat to Corinthians in the Club World Cup Final, while Arsenal's League Cup defeat to Bradford highlighted the need for change at the Emirates Stadium.
If you're not a fan of a large club, be prepared for disappointment, because I'm predicting some big deals in January, and one including a 26-year-old Colombian international who used to play for River Plate and Porto. Please note: This is in no particular order.
Good, we're ready to begin. Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines...
