It's transfer deadline day. Cue hysteria & hype from most of the media & football websites. For those who have both the time & the inclination, the Guardian's running an irreverent & spiky live blog on what does & doesn't transpire before the 11pm deadline (http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2011/jan/31/transfer-window-deadline-day-live ).
So, too, is the Oldham Echo & the quality of their effort can, perhaps, be summed up in the question posed by their hack, Neil Macdonald (http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/liverpool-news/local-news/2011/01/31/transfer-window-deadline-day-live-blog-from-7am-11pm-100252-28078031/ ):
"Will Liverpool hold on to Fernando Torres or sign someone else?"
About the tooth fairy & Santa Claus, I've got some bad news for you, Neil.
