I'm trying to work it out myself. All I can add is that Eriksen needs to be signed before the squad for the second half of the season is submitted, not by the transfer deadline.
Not necessarily.

For that PL Press Release I cited was "(Updated 13 October 13:20)

Why would they have needed to update it so long after the deadline for the submission of the squad lists?

Yeah. We signed Zanka outside the transfer window as he was a free agent. This was completed on the 9th but the squad didn't need to be submitted until the 10th. So signed a free agent outside the window as you are allowed to do but prior the the finalisation of the 25 man squad. If signed after the squad confirmation then it would have been too late.

I assume that the squad co formation and transfer window are aligned
Thank you.

If you're correct, then it means we could still theoretically sign Eriksen after 31st January, assuming we still had an unallocated squad place available. Which was only what I was wondering about in the first place (post #1,172)

Are you being deliberately misunderstanding now.

Let's try one more time.

You cannot sign anyone (ANYONE) after the squad list has been submitted, empty space or not. That was on the 10th September for the summer window.

We do not know when the next squad (final) squad list has to be submitted. We cannot sign ANYONE after that*


*except in extenuating circumstances as previous caveated.

It's possible that in Sept the squad submission date was after the transfer window closed, where in January it's in alignment...

Anyway, quite frankly I would rather it be the 31st of Jan, as then we'd get an answer as to whether he's joining or not sooner! I wouldn't want this dragging until March...

Only if we can submit the updated squad list after that date.....I assume we can but I don't know the date the new list must be submitted

I'm not "deliberately misunderstanding" anyone.

On reflection, I think we're talking about three related, but essentially separate things.

1. The transfer window. As the term indicates, this is the period during which contract transfers between clubs must be transacted;
2. Submission of squad lists. Again self-explanatory - the PL needs to know that clubs don't have too many players, or ones in the wrong category etc. And since contract details sometimes need to be finalised even after the window is closed (eg work permits coming through late), the list cannot be submitted immediately on 01 September (or 01 February), so a week or two is allowed;
3. The signing of a Free Agent. I think this may be done even after the above two, so long as there is still a suitable, unallocated place available. At which point the PL will update their records accordingly.

In positing the above, I'm not claiming it's correct (it may not be), but neither is it irrational. Nor am I suggesting it in order to have a pop at anyone, or score points.

You've been told 4 times that your thoughts are wrong.

for example....In 2019/20 the window closed on 31st of Jan with the submission date being 5th Feb

I’d imagine the squad list submission date is deliberately a week or so after the transfer deadline just to give clubs and the PL time to do the admin. Rather prosaic but there’d be uproar if players signed within the deadline regularly failed to get into the submitted squads for admin reasons. There may be players who get released or loaned out to countries with different transfer windows, free agents like Zanka who clubs will prefer to finalise paperwork outside the pressure of the window and maybe others signed at the end of the window who’ll need a few days for international clearance.

I would have thought CE would be raring to go now and not wait until the end of the month for a club, then have to get match fit etc. IMHO it would be in his best interests to sign for us today or tomorrow so we can get him down to Jersey Road and continue his reintroduction into PL football.

A few games in the B Team at the BCS would be a nice little earner.

Clubs will only be able to alter the squad during transfer windows, but the FA have said that there can be room for negotiation in exceptional circumstances. ie all goalkeepers injured.

He's quoted as saying he hasn't spoken with CE.....that comes as a surprise, he should be ringing him every morning to say how valued he would be!

That’s what he’s told the media, doesn’t mean it’s true. He’s not going to come out and say he has and that we’re trying to sign him.
He could have gone for the old chestnut I only speak about our players.

I'd be very disappointed if he lied in answer to a direct question.

He’s done that many times in regards to injuries and COVID, a manager will always say what’s best for the club, rather than invite further speculation, and he’s right to do that.
He's certainly been vague and used "should", "could be", "expect", etc. but, as far as I'm aware, he's never lied in response to a direct question, so have you examples?

Don’t have exact quotes but he’s always hidden injuries from media and opposition. Last one I remember was day before United game was postponed in the press conference he said everyone was fit, even though there were already rumours about that Alvaro had tested positive, which of course ended up being true.

To be fair, what you’ve said here is different to what you said previously, which is that it had to be by the end of the transfer window.

It seems everyone is actually saying the same thing here, in that it seems likely that he could sign after the 31st of Jan, as long as it’s before the squad submission deadline, which is usually a few days after the end of the transfer window.

No need to throw insults at people, when from your posts you’re also clearly not entirely clear about what can / can’t happen.

Clip they just showed on SSN was about as waffly as it's possible to get.

Pundits then said that 10 clubs interested, 5 being from PL

I would have hoped that Thomas had spoken to him....this is the exact sort of signing where the Head Coach (who knows him) putting in a phone call can make all the difference. There is a personal connection between the two so why not use that?

Fabrizio Romano now posting about the Brentford-Eriksen link. This is gettin' surreal
Fabrizio is very reliable. Adding this to Frank not wanting to give much away in his interview would add up to one result.

Up till now I have not let myself truly believe it'll happen. Now, I think it really might!

Given there’s been no update here since the ‘korma’ status I wouldn’t get too excited just yet

I agree with you but maybe he has options ?

He may be reliable but he didn't tweet anything other than Thomas' direct quote from the Man U press conference.
