Arsene Wenger Press Conference - 18/02/2014

We have a love/hate relationship with deadline day, but at least Jim White is hilarious.

Thanks to Sky Sports and their ridiculous coverage, transfer Deadline Day is basically the same as Christmas or Easter – except it's much more cult-like.

Jim White gets fuelled with something and then goes all day telling us that the 'clock is ticking' and ' TWITTER IS IN MELTDOWN' about Stevie May's move from Sheffield Wednesday to Preston. 

While White and his 'disciples' tell you the BREAKING NEWS, we all know the only reason anyone ever watches the Deadline Day coverage is for the fans and their bizarre antics.

Who doesn't want to see grown men in sweat pants hang around waiting for their new signing to turn up, or for loads of rowdy teenagers to use a erm.. marital aid to attack a presenter with. 


So with Deadline Day now in full swing, here are five things guaranteed to happen today.

1. Jim White will talk loads of rubbish

Sky Sports made him the face of Deadline Day and he doesn't half say some nonsense, but everyone seems to love it. You can even bet on what the first thing he'll say will be, or his most used phrase – this is the world we live in now... 

We can't wait to see what comes out of left-field or what Sky sources will be telling him! 

2. Someone will go rogue

After Peter Odemwinge decided to turn drive to Dundee   Queens Park Rangers in his bare feet for no reason back in 2013, we've been hoping someone else will do it! 

3. Someone will mess up their paperwork

Hey, football clubs, you've had months to sign all the players you want for the new season and yet like a teenager revising for their GCSE's, you've left it to the last minute! However, somehow you managed to get something sorted and you agree to pay LOADS for a mediocre players. But then, SHOCK, you don't get the paperwork sorted, it happens to everyone, every year – even Real Madrid! 

4. Fans will turn up at clubs and be annoying

We get it, you're excited your club has signed someone... but shouldn't you be at school? And hey, middle-aged balding bloke sweating quite a lot, shouldn't you be at work? I mean look at this lot we spotted last year... 

5. Arsenal fans will get mad

Trust me Arsenal fans, I understand your pain and I'm just as confused as you are as to why Arsene Wenger doesn't sign loads of players all the time and just get rid of anyone who played rubbish at the weekend. It really is baffling! Let's be honest, you're probably not going to sign Edinson Cavani, but if you do, you'll go mental!
