Hatters boss ‘hates’ transfer window
Town chief John Still has blasted the transfer window, writes Mike Simmonds.
In the week that Everton manager Roberto Martinez labelled it a ‘footballing circus’, Still said ahead of the deadline that ends on Monday: “I hate it, hate it, I don’t like it all.
“I think it aids the wealthy. When it comes to a transfer window and you are a big club, they can go and just get a couple (of players) in case.
“Small clubs can’t just take a couple in case, you can’t work like that.
“I’m not a lover of if there’s going to be a transfer window, to have it open when the season’s on, you can’t do that. If they want to have a transfer window, when it’s the first game of the season, that’s it. Open it again at Christmas, a week again at Christmas and that’s it, finish.

“We’ve had these stories (about Gareth Bale, Luis Suarez and Wayne Rooney) bore us to tears.
“To have a transfer window going on when the season is going on, I’m not happy with. When it opens again, I think it should be a few days or a week at the absolute most and you just get on with it.
“Or not (have a transfer window) at all, I’d be happy with that. But it’s not going to happen so I don’t know why I’m talking about it.”
