Biggest transfer window in football history? Empty Biggest transfer window in football history?

Was the 2013 summer transfer window biggest or greatest, want of a better word, transfer window in football history? All of Bale, Cavani, Falcao and Nerman are in the top 10 highest transfer fees. Ozil is the second most expensive Premier League player of all time, Cavani is the most expensive Ligue 1 transfer of all time followed by Falcao, Nerman is the most expensive player bought from a non European league and of course Bale is the most expensive player of all time. The amount of high profile moves that have are stunning (don't start arguing on what is and what is not a high profile signing)

Man Utd: Fellaini

Man City: Negredo, Navas, Fernandinho, Jovetic

Liverpool: Sakho, Illori, Aspas, Mignolet

Arsenal: Ozil

Chelsea: Willian, Eto'o. Schuerlle

Spurs: Paulinho, Soldado, Capoue, Chadli, Chiriches, Lamela, Eriksen

AC Milan: Kaka, Poli

Juventus: Tevez, Llorente, Ogbonna

Napoli: Higuain, Callejon, Albiol, Reina, Rafael

Inter: Icardi, Belfodil, Campagnaro

Roma: Strootman, Gervinho, Benatia

Lazio: Biglia

Fiorentina: Gomez, Joaquin, Illicic

Bayern: Gotze, Alcantara

BVB: Sokratis, Aubameyang, Mkhitaryan

Wolfsburg: Gustavo

PSG: Cavani, Marquinhos, Digne

Monaco: Falcao, Moutinho, Rodriguez, Carvalho, Abidal, Ismat-Mirin, Romero, Toulalan, Kongdobia

Marseille: Thauvin

Real Madrid: Isco, Illara, Carvajal, Bale

Barca: Neymar

Atletico: Alderweild, Villa, Guilavogui


Bernard and Fernando moved to Shaktar, a lot of EPL clubs made good use of the new TV money (Swansea: Bony, Southampton: Osvaldo, Sunderland: Giacherinni etc) and there may be some other high profile signings I missed.

World Cup year, maybe should have expected this.

No seriously.... especially in the PL.

The massive TV increase and it only just barely broke the record, i expected clubs to spend more if i'm honest.

Obviously there are some isolated incidents but on the whole i expected more.

should of been more, if Woodward wasn't wanking to Fabregas for a month and buying legit targets instead of fantasy ones, we should of done a lot more...2 midfielders, a LB, a winger

and Barca should of done more as well.

Yeah it's been pretty big, Che's point is a big one as well. Certainly the biggest I've seen since I've started watching football. Can't speak for before then.

As for expecting more... Laughing Yeah a couple teams should have done more but on the whole there was A LOT.

Its funny seeing that Wenger is finally forced to spend 50M, even he has to join in to compete for talent Very Happy

This was fuking huge end to the transfer window which already was so packed... all in all the biggest by far in terms of intrigue, amount of players, amount of money, clubs involved, everything.
