The domestic transfer window is now officially open and I can just hear the shudders of fear surround that announcement.
Let’s be honest, though we love to see our club linked with new players like any other set of fans, we’ve probably got to approach things with caution more than others.
Hopefully, though, Victor Orta, Andrea Radrizzani and Paul Heckingbottom will sort things out in a manner that makes us happy.
Whilst we wait to see what occurs, then, let’s have a look at Phil Hay’s tweet about the opening and the reaction from our fans:

Probably waiting for the international window to open so they can bring in stars from second tier teams across Europe. Albania, Estonia, Greece, Timbuktu ..etc

You can understand the slight reservations and anxiety around this announcement.
Obviously, a lot of is it sarcasm but, at the same time, with us there’s just as much chance we’ll make some duff signings as class ones.
Let’s hope more of the latter prevail this time around.
