Shame, liked the idea but could only take off if all countries went for it and sadly they didn't.
Agreed. Had it become a Europe wide deadline it would have been better for everyone. But, not surprisingly, UEFA bottled it. There is no logical reason for deadline day to be almost a month after most countries' seasons start - other than it gives the very largest clubs the chance to shaft the smaller clubs with big offers for players when it is too late for the smaller clubs to bring in replacements.
