We cover deadline day... for some reason.

Hello there and welcome. It's the 1st of September, it's Transfer Deadline Day and here we are, on the vague chance that anything will happen at Bolton Wanderers today, with a live blog to cover it.

18:03: For god sake. Just when I thought I was done. Marc Iles is reporting that a potential outgoing from BWFC could yet still be finalised. Here's hoping it's Medo. Any updates will be on

18:02: Right, I'm off to go and play some Metal Gear. Keep it locked on for reaction to a disappointing day and the transfer window in general. Bye!

18:01: I've been Dan Murphy (@Murbroski), thanks to Rob (@Robilaz) and Alastair (@Alastair3141) for their help during the day. I'm just glad I can finally get that blabbering burke off my telly.

18:00: So that's it. The window closes to put an end to an incredibly boring Deadline Day. Bolton were unable to bring in a striker, so it's all on the loan window that open September 8th.

17:55: Five minutes to go...

17:50: Going in to the last 10 minutes now. Thank god this thing is nearly over.

17:45: Phew. At least Wigan won't be signing James Vaughn.

17:40: Some reet moody footballers about today

17:32: Less than half an hour to go and nothing to report, I'm afraid. The loan window it is.

17:18: United confirm Anthony Martial. Must be nice being able to sign a striker.

17:06: Could be worse I suppose.

17:00: We're going into the last hour now, and it doesn't seem like anything will happen. We can but hope.

16:52: My left eye has started to hurt.

16:42: Reet guys, I'm back after a break. I missed owt?

16:41: That's all from me folks, I'm sure you'll agree it's been riveting. Now I hand back to Dan and whatever we are crawling to the barn with

16:21 At least this won't continue until 11:00

16:16 Alexander Flemming's original mould for the development of penicillin sold for almost £5,000. Meanwhile we can't do anything because we don't have any money.

16:04 The Stokes story has been written up, check it out.

15:53 I'm going to plug the LOVPod because I can. It'll remind you of Dan so you don't get home sick, he'll be back soon don't worry.

15:52 We've been linked almost every attacker ever to go north of Hadrian's Wall but this might have some factual basis. Maybe, hopefully, who knows.

15:48 Reports suggest that we have had a loan bid for Celtic's Anthony Stokes rejected. More as this story develops.

15:43 For more on Sordell, you can go here. Read that and come back, we might have signed Benzema in the gap.

15:40 The Tilehurst End were meant to be our brothers in arms and they've gone and signed Vydra on loan. It's starting to sink in that everyone is this league is very good.

15:39 I wonder how David N'Gog is doing.

15:33 My mate once made a kid cry in my secondary school when he told him that Suarez had signed for Bayern on a January deadline day once. Unless Vaz Te is spotted in the local Morrison's I'll talk about that for an hour.

15:21 Marvin Sordell has had his contract cancelled by mutual consent. His name was being thrown around earlier.

15:20 No 'Arry leaning out of his car window this year. This just gets bleaker and bleaker.

15:16 Here it is. It's more entertaining than this.

15:12 His red card is never not funny.

15:07 The lack of movement for youth players may be disappointing to some, including me. I'm a fan of Hayden White and I'm concerned he'll be forgotten in our strong defensive roster.

15:02 And we're off, Iles says that unless Medo leaves in the coming hours, there will be no incoming signings.

15:00 Hello, Dan is off for a power nap and a twix so he can recover from the traumatizing experience that is transfer deadline day. I'm stepping in to fill the void.

14:56: Of course, when I say that it all goes quiet. I'm off for a break so Alastair's going to look after you for a while. See you soon!

14:28: Seems like there might just be a bit of life in this transfer window yet for BWFC.

14:10: Make of this what you will.

14:03: Apparently Medo Kamara is generating interest from Bristol City.

13:48: West Brom thing seems to be false. I have no idea what's going on.

13:44PM: WBA have a young striker called Adil Nabi, but he's joined the Delhi Dynamos on loan. Victor Anichebe anyone?

13:39PM: Seems like it's a striker from West Brom..

13:35PM: Mr Marc Iles says an incoming may be happening. My heart is skipping beats.

13:32PM: Brace...

13:28PM: So, with four and a half hours left and Bolton still apparently trying to bring in a striker, here's who we've been linked with: Ricardo Vaz Te, James Wilson, James Vaughn, Yann Kermogant, Nick Powell, Giorgios Samaras and 'Someone from West Brom'. I doubt any of them are true, but it's nice to hear rumblings at least.

13:12PM: If you'd like to ask a question, then please fire away @Murbroski

13:11PM: No, but then yes. The freed wages from Ream's departure went on Pisano, Silva and Casado. The transfer fee we got for Ream went on bills and running the club. We have no cash in the slightest.

13:09PM: I just nearly fell asleep but I've been saved as we finally have some gossip. Medo Kamara, remember him? Well, he's once again been linked with a move back to his former club FK Partizan. Also, Bolton are one of the many clubs being linked with a loan move for Bournemouth's Yann Kermogant. It will never happen, but it'd be a great signing.

12:43PM: After signing some no mark from Nantes, Chelsea are now signing Reading's Michael Hector. What on Earth is going on?!

12:20PM: And speaking of former BWFC targets, Leicester City's Liam Moore has signed for Bristol City on loan.

12:19PM: Rumours suggesting that Huddersfield Town are about to release Adam Hamill.

12:17PM: Seems as if West Ham United are being the busiest team today. They've signed Nickicia Jelevic, Alex Song and Victor Moses. With rumours that they're still interested in Michail Antonio too.


12:09PM: You all reet? Dan back here, thanks to Rob for covering me whilst I ventured into Leigh. It's really good to be back. Really.

12:02PM: Is this really the level of rumour sourcing we've sunk to?

11:44AM: My Twitter feed is full of people saying 'Why haven't we bought a striker?' and 'Please just buy someone Bolton!' Well, if you're one of those people, then this is why we haven't and probably won't. We're massively broke, and we're up for sale. For more info, go and read this.

11:23AM: Wow. How can Reading afford this?!

11:20AM: Nicky Maynard. Is currently a free agent. No comment.

11:18AM: Just seen someone suggest we try and sign Jon Walters... When will people realise what is realistic and what is pure fantasy?

11:15AM: This says it all...

10:33AM: But seriously, £5m for Jacob Butterfield. Jacob bloody Butterfield. What is the world coming to?

10:28AM: Rob standing in on deadline day updates here. So what rumours do we have today.. Sordell? Hooper? Unlikely. But our friend Marc Iles has revealed Wanderers aren't ruling out any deals today, so hold onto your hats ladies and gents...

10:20AM: As it seems i'll be talking more about former Whites players than potential new ones today. Wolves are apparently trying to sign Joe Mason from Cardiff.

10:11AM: As well as Gary Hooper, Kyle Lafferty and Elliott Bennett seem unwanted at Norwich City. Would you take them?

10:07AM: Seems that Matej Vydra is going to Reading on loan for the year, kinda weird since Watford only brought him to the club permanently in the summer. Reading apparently paying a loan fee of £2m. Sigh. They brought Lucas Pazion from Chelsea in on loan yesterday too.

9:51AM: One time Whites target, Bournemouth goalkeeper Lee Camp, is set for a move to Huddersfield.

9:39AM: Sheffield Wednesday are being linked with every striker under the sun: Rhodes, Vydra, Hooper, Kermogant, Campbell. Madness.

9:36AM: Derby are actually, genuinely paying £5m for Jacob Butterfield. What on Earth are they doing?!

9:34AM: Since nothings going on, why don't you tweet me @murbroski or comment below telling me if you're happy with our summer dealings or not?

9:29AM: Now a whisper of MK Dons being in for Jay Spearing. However, it just all seems like people on twitter throwing endless shit at the wall.

9:21AM: Gary Hooper is still yet to join a club on loan you know...

9:18AM: It's what, 16 minutes into the live blog? I'm regretting already because you just know we're not signing anyone.

9:12AM: The first BWFC rumour of the day concerns Barnsley's Conor Hourihane, who we're apparently after in a swap deal with Conor Wilkinson.

9:10AM: In other news, Derby County are apparently playing ludicrous money for Huddersfield Town's Jacob Butterfield. A price of £4m!

9:05AM: How about the De Gea thing last night eh? If Manchester United have  purposely fucked over Madrid, then it is the single best example of public shithousing in football ever.

9:02 AM: Good morning everyone, it's Dan here, and I'lll be with you until I get bored or someone else wants to take over!
