The Only Drinking Game You Need This Transfer Deadline Day


So the transfer window is almost closed, and there are more than a couple of clubs making some pretty questionable purchases, otherwise known as panic buys.

Few things rank higher in the calendar of a football fan than Transfer Deadline Day, and Sky Sports News do it better than anyone else.

Jim White, that yellow tie and the breaking news bar are what we spend all summer looking forward to, and this season is no different.

The title race might be looking pretty much dead in the water (because let’s face it, Manchester City will have it tied up by Christmas at this rate), but the transfer window has a bit of mileage left in it yet.

With that in mind, we have come up with the only drinking game you need to be playing as you sit back, relax, and wait for those deals to roll in.
