    Football transfer windows

    Is it time to rethink the transfer windows?
    Perhaps return to just one, or more importantly to me, reduce their size and close the summer one as soon as the Community Shield game has kicked off.

    What do you think, and this isn't club specific
    Forever trying.

    I'm okay with two windows but this one should close the moment the league your team are in start their season. The start of the season gets messed around far too much by late transfers.

    One window that is open from the day the season finishes to the day that is starts again - no other window

    Don't have one, make them serve out their contracts with players becoming available on the day the contract expires. Managers susesed for making poor decisions and players know they have to stay.

    Sounds like a sensible option.

    But clubs argue that they may need to enter the market if a player gets a serious injury and is out for the rest of the season. I seem to remember they did try the 1 window way, but it did create a few problems.
    Personally I do think end of season to start of season is the best way, but I doubt 1 window will ever return.

    So the club buys a new player in August and that player finds someone in the team like his wife more than him.

    Are you going to make him wait a year to leave?

    Scrap the window totally and allow players to move when they want, however put in a league rule that players can't play for more than 2 teams in a single season, but keeping the "cup tied" rule in.

    Could be worth looking at putting in a limit for number of players a single club can have (not just first team) to stop larger clubs signing up loads of players and farming them out on loan.
    Hit a little white ball round a field into a small hole. Repeat.

    Re: Football transfer windows

    With leagues running at different times all around the world, you're dreaming to expect one window a season that has dates that coincide with the beginning and end of one particular league.

    Re: Football transfer windows

    I know it would never happen but I quite like the idea of making players stay until the end of their contract, as a Saints fan with the ongoing VvD saga this sounds very appealing

    He is a classic example of a greedy player who was perfectly happy to sign an improved long term contract only a year ago then want to rip it up as soon as a bigger club starts sniffing around. One report today suggests Saints are happy to make him sit on the bench for the next 5 years but zero chance of that happening.
