    Welcome hornet fans to another thriling transfer deadline day and as we count down to that moment when the window SLAMS shut, I'll be bringing YOU every piece of hornet-related transfer news the moment it's available.

    We'll be using the very latest vidiprinter technology* to bring you the very latest transfer news with live updates from our imaginary virtual reporters stationed at the Vic, London Colney, Udinese's Tuttifrutti stadium, the Moon under the Water and outside Uncle Ron's House.

    Back after these messages.

    (Paaa-paaa-paaaa etc then 8 mins of adverts - mainly for gambling)

    How much do you want for this desk, and why do you need to sell by 11pm ?

    Oi! You're interrupting important transfer news! As I was saying...CONFIRMED - DEFENDER ARRIVES!!

    Defender Frankie Abbot has been recalled from Lower Amesbury Academicals in Wiltshire.

    He will be returning on the green line bus. His mum didn't like him being away for so long. Not with his chest.

    Abbot told our reporter "Awwww mum!"

    Marc Jurado has signed for español from man utd. Our reporter at Old Trafford is unable to confirm whether he's any relative of our jurado. But quite possibly there's some link somewhere. Could be. Stay tuned.

    More after the break...

    No reporters stationed at the Esso garage? Shoddy.

    Ryan Porteous Speaks Frankly About Tensions!

    Ryan is a fishing inspector in Scotland somewhere. He says that part of his daily job is "keeping an eye on the tension of wires for the gear out the back,"

    OK it's a different Ryan Porteous, but almost certainly some sort of relative.

    Our reporter at the Forth of Firth, Phil Fifth, caught up with Ryan as his boat docked. He says he's Watford through and through and is hoping for a top half finish this year.

    Under 21's down 3-1 at home to Peterborough with 12 minutes to go, turned it around and won 4-3! First win of the season!

    I heard Peterborough took 6 of their players off after 75 minutes just to even it up. Looks like it should have been only 5 of them after all.

    Welcome back to the transfer hotdesk which is buzzing with transfer news, just waiting to be confirmed.

    I'm hearing exclusively that some are saying there is likely to be NO further transfers either in or out, which would be a disappointment but at the same time, we're ruling NOTHING out. There could be multi-million pound signings both in AND out before the window slams sĥit...sorry I mean shut...and you'll hear about them first here at Clive's super transfer deadline day hotdesk.

    Crossing over now to ourfriends at BetKremlin for the latest odds.

    So what are the odds for any further transfer incomings, Ted?

    Well after this morning's dramatic news about Abbot coming back from Wiltshire, things have calmed down just a little and we've been able to catch our breath! We're now offering odds of 1000 to 1 on any further transfers in or out. Don't forget to have a bet!

    Thanks Ted, we'll be back with more desperate puff and pretend excitement after tbe break.

    Stay tuned sports fans. We've managed to get an exclusive interview with a former pie seller at the Vic to get his thoughts on transfer deadline day.

    Former Watford pie seller Sidney Kate joins us at Clive's Transfer Deadline Day blog to answer a few questions about transfer windows, signing players and also his time at Vicarage Road and future plans.

    Here’s how the discussion went:

    How does transfer deadline day now compare to when you started out pie selling?

    “I started off in charge of selling just cans of pop and so my first few years it was low-key. Players got signed, players left. Sometimes permanent, sometimes on loan. It was a completely different dynamic. These days it’s just as manic as ever with people chasing pies. Nothing I see and hear now surprises me.”

    I am currently stood outside a football stadium in the dark and we have an intriguing situation that has football fans on the edge of their seats. There's a transfer deal in the works that could go either way, with numerous factors at play.

    Reports have emerged that a top-tier club is in advanced negotiations to sign a highly sought-after player. While the details of the deal have been kept under wraps, it's clear that both parties are interested. The player in question is undoubtedly a talent worth pursuing, and the club's fans are buzzing with excitement. However, let's not jump to conclusions just yet. In the world of football transfers, nothing is set in stone until the ink is on the contract. The negotiations could hit a snag, as they often do, over issues such as transfer fees, contract terms, or even personal preferences. It's a precarious situation that can go either way.

    The player's current club, keen on maximizing their return, is holding out for the best possible deal. This could involve intricate negotiations that may prolong the process and the clock is ticking down for the window to slam shut. Moreover, the player's own desires and ambitions play a significant role. While the lure of a bigger club and potentially higher wages is appealing, the decision ultimately rests with the player. Factors like playing time, personal connections, and the promise of trophies can all influence the final outcome.

    Transfer Deadline Day continues to be a day of surprises, intrigue, and remarkable twists in the world of football. In the unpredictable world of football transfers, anything could happen! Stay tuned for further updates as we follow these developments closely, providing you with the most insightful coverage available.

    Didn’t stay tuned, but I bet he/she thinks it’s ridiculous that all pie sales had to be concluded by 11pm on 31st.

    It turns out that the transfer deadline is actually tomorrow at 11pm (yes I know it's February 1st, I don't know why they haven't just done it at the end of the month).

    But anyway, there's both today and tomorrow for us to still not sign anyone else.

    Yes. This is now confirmed. February has been a long term admirer of Deadline Day, and January is not going to stand in the way. More to follow. But not much more.
