So I actually paid no attention to transfer deadline day, although something about Tottenham being desperate to sign Louis Saha crept through, and a couple of tweets to do with an attempt to sign Kaka. Even when trying to avoid being sent down Harry's got time for wheeling and dealing.
City lose at Goodison to a single goal, with the real story being that a man hancuffed himself to the goalposts late in the first half in protest at his daughter not being hired by Ryanair. A well targeted demonstration that. Mancini says that he underestimated Everton and he didn't prepare the team properly.
United take advantage with two penalties to beat Stoke, with Ben Amos managing a clean sheet on his debut. Pulis seems to have been unhappy with the penalty decisions (aren't managers always?). Chelsea look to be out of the title race and continue to post large losses, although reduced slightly from last year. Problems for FFP? Not if you believe SwissRamble.
West Ham, Cardiff and Southampton all drop points at the top of the Championship, with Birmingham's 4-0 win leaving them closing in, while Crystal Palace sign two Ryman League players - defender Michael Chambers from Dulwich Hamlet and league top scorer Kwesi Appiah from Margate.
In League Two, Southend come off second best in the top of the table clash with Swindon, losing 4-1.
