EPL Midseason Window's Top Transfers

The mid season window, is typically heralded by a cataclysmic level of hype that is churned up with its impending arrival, much like the clouds of mud stirred up in the water beneath a paddle steamer as it docks at a jetty. All noise and movement, heralding the arrival typically of some passengers and a few souls who prove useful in the long run.

Often it is the case that passengers do arrive in this opening, purely because of the rampant and depraved desperation that accompanies the transfer window, players that are just there for the ride in the end, which every manager wishes to avoid, at present there are high profile and big money signings who are passengers, and both are associated with the same transfer fee.

Clubs and managers are often having their last or first throw of the dice, so desperation can cloud their judgment and haunt them in hindsight . Generally signings are made in this window if a team needs help, has had injuries or is trying to push for a higher place in a competition or a longer run in a cup.

This seasons EPL window saw what was a fairly standard list of transfer dealings. The canny deal, the crazy deal, the despised deal and the nondescript dazzler. See if you can pick them throughout the following slideshow.
