Jose Mourinho voices support for early closure of transfer window

This summer Conte took his eye off the ball and everything at Chelsea is imploding

At least this way, if a player makes such a scene or an offer so big arrives that a club has little alternative but to sell, they can still replace him: if Premier League clubs treat themselves as an island and only end their own window early, they could be left with the worst of all worlds. They struggled to find an opening in the early stages of their match away at Newcastle last week but things got more comfortable once the home side were reduced to ten men.

Both sides kept clean sheets in their opening game with Paul Clement's side managing hold Southampton to a goalless draw at St Mary's and the Swans may find goals hard to come by this weekend with last season's top scorer Fernando Llorente still sidelined and star man Gylfi Sigurdson securing his move to Everton midweek.

I'd even decided not to put Lukaku in my dream team to make it a double blow.

Many managers have spoken out in support of such a change to bring clarity to their preparations.

"For me it is has to be across the leagues".

Hughes said ahead of Stoke's home game with Arsenal on Saturday: "From my point of view".

Japan to install land-based missile defense Aegis Ashore
Japan, which hosts about 50,000 US forces members , has sought support for worldwide efforts to pressure North Korea. Tokyo also wants to increase the number of Aegis destroyers to five, according to the report.

"Ironically, it would put the clubs in a worse situation that you would still lose players if clubs overseas want them and you can't replace them".

Their report claims when club shareholders attend a meeting next month, league officials are expecting over two-thirds of clubs to approve the changes - while Watford is one of the clubs expected to reject. Of course, the club have quality - but I don't personally see them challenging for promotion this season as I listed them as a big club that is set to struggle. "Some teams are losing like 30 percent of their teams". On top of this managers have to deal with constant questions about who's leaving and who's coming in, the implication that buying players is the one true way to solve any problem a team might have.

The particular issue for Liverpool is that Philippe Coutinho is being chased by Barcelona and so had the Premier League transfer window already closed now there would be nothing to stop the Brazilian leaving for Spain, yet the Reds couldn't get a replacement.

Keir Radnedge looks back at the istory of the transfer window as we know it. ESPN FC's Mark Ogden wonders if closing the window early would be a competitive disadvantage for Premier League clubs. "We were quite good previous year on corners and overall I believe that with a bit of work we can get that out of the system", continued Wenger.

New signing Jese Rodriguez has the ideal chance to show his worth against one of the big boys but on the other side of the park Alexandre Lacazette is looking to become the first ever Gunner to score in his first two Premier League games. The risk is minimal.

"That is what we tried to do last year and it's what we are going to try to do this year".
