Liverpool were the busiest of all the Premier League big guns, and their Luis Suarez sale has left everyone wondering whether the club are going to "do a Tottenham" in 2014-15.
The notion is that after reinvesting the £75 million brought in by Suarez's exit, the Reds run the risk of dropping fluidity, but all signs early this season would point to the contrary.
Granted, some arrivals are yet to make their bows, but the likes of Dejan Lovren, Alberto Moreno, Mario Balotelli and Emre Can have hit the ground running at Anfield with varying levels of success.
First off, it was the right time to sell Suarez; that's a given. In the wake of his third biting controversy at this summer's World Cup, £75 million will be treated as a very acceptable sum when taking all into account.
With that figure, most transfer fees were taken care of, the club spending around £115 million altogether, but getting an extremely promising crop as opposed to one superstar.
Balotelli's worth will depend on his discipline, people will inevitably say, but there's no doubt that at £16 million, his signing is potentially devastating upon his return to England.
In time, Divock Origi also promises to provide competition to the likes of him and Daniel Sturridge up front, but a season back on loan at Lille will be good preparation for the battles to come on Merseyside.
Lazar Markovic and Adam Lallana add cover and possible new first-team stars in a variety of attacking/creative regions, while Can can cover at full-back as well as in midfield, with no evident area lacking in recruitment.
It's also promising to see that while not on Chelsea proportions just yet, Liverpool have deep enough youth reserves that they can afford to farm prospects out, numerous of whom hold first-team potential.
Javier Manquillo's two-year loan from Atletico Madrid may not be the most high-profile arrival, but he could also prove to be worth his investment.
On the whole, Brendan Rodgers used initiative and comes out of the window with a superior line-up because of it. Job done.
