I am casting my eye back to this exact day, the 31st August 2013, but a year earlier - which just happened to be the Transfer Deadline day of last season.
So we have a lot to get through.
What were the main transfer tales from that day? What big events were happening in Premier League football?
Here is a select pick of big scoops from Transfer Deadline day, the 31st August 2012 …
Let’s start with a non-transfer story, as Atletico Madrid tore Chelsea apart in the UEFA Super Cup. Radamel Falcao bagged a hat-trick in the first-half and made the Chelsea defence look like amateurs in a stunning performance.
Pretty City signings
Manchester City were one of the big movers on Transfer Deadline day bringing in Maicon and Javi Garcia.
But neither signing has been a resounding success.
The club let Maicon go back to Italy with Roma this summer for absolutely nothing, while Garcia has struggled to cement a place in the starting line-up.
Daniel, when I first saw you
Liverpool missed out on Daniel Sturridge - after the player insisted on leaving permanently.
Brendan Rodgers wanted to bring in the Englishman on a season-long loan deal but Sturridge instead stayed at Chelsea.
Eventually the player did go to Anfield in January - and is currently one of the in-form players in the Premier League.
Moutinho Spur-ns the chance
They snapped up Hugo Lloris, to the delight of fans - before Clint Dempsey rolled through their gates and not Liverpool’s for a medical.
But they did also flog Rafael van der Vaart, while missing out on Joao Moutinho in a massive disappointment for Andre Villas Boas.
No such disappointment this year, as AVB has done most his business already. Just Bale to go…
Perhaps the best piece of business a year ago was Aston Villa’s £7 million move for Christian Benteke. The Belgian international has since gone on to become one of the best strikers in the league - and kept Villa in the Premier League last term.
This season remains a blank page, with which he can draw any picture he likes.
