Well, the transfer window is closed, so let's move on to other, more substantial, things.

First, some reviews on the job Chris Hughton and Mike Ashley did this summer, from Mike Jones of Talk of the Tyne, toonsy, and Ed. Paul Bestall of EPL Talk gives us some thoughts on Deadline Day.

Scott Wilson of The Northern Echo chronicles Hatem Ben Arfa's journey to Newcastle. Actual quote from HBA: "I considered stopping playing football." I cannot shake the idea that if he ends up making 25 appearances, making the deal a purchase, that he could do this same song and dance with us if one of the Big 4 were to come calling. Make no mistake, I'm glad he's on board, but I'll probably always have a paranoia about him holding the team hostage.

Sol Campbell played 45 minutes for the reserve squad yesterday, and The Daily Mail was there to take pictures. This won't do anything to silence those who would criticize his physique. Ben Collins of Sky Sports noted that Campbell has been stepping up his fitness regimen. Campbell is quoted as saying that he'll play 60-70 minutes in the next reserve squad match, which should take place during the international break.

Speaking of internationals, Andy Carroll will not be representing the U-21 squad at the Euro 2012 qualifiers because of an ankle injury. Shola Ameobi will not be representing Scotland...because he's not eligible to do so. Silly Craig Levein.
