Congratulations to liverpool on signing the most overrated striker in the world.

Now we're seeing really silly money here. 27m for Torres is a massive gamble. Think of Diego Forlan or Fernando Morientes. Success in Spain doesn't necessarily equate to success in England, and vice-versa.

16.5m for Bent is ridiculous but he's a proven Premiership scorer...how will he do in Europe, though, and with competition from Berbatov and Keane?

The da Silva transfer to Arsenal has seemed to slip through the cracks. It's an interesting signing definitely, but Arsenal have been remarkably quiet on the transfer front...although they often are.

Me? I'm still holding out for Francis bloody Jeffers, which says it all about how far Ipswich have fallen, really.

If you're going to spend 27 million on a striker then it should be on a great striker, not a good one. Torres falls into the latter category. a good player yes, but he's never scored more than 20 goals in a season, very little champions league football, if at all, coming to a league he's never played in before that many of his compatriots have failed in with that kind of price tag over his head. All i'm saying is that Liverpool fans should not expect fireworks from their fancy new signing.

It is however a step in the right direction for them. He's a big big name signing and he has far more talent than the likes of bellamy, kuyt and crouch.

Arsenal spending all their thierry henry transfer money on this da silva guy is arguably an even bigger gamble than torres. we know wenger knows how to spot a player when he see's one but he had better hope and pray that this one comes off.

If United land tevez then the rest of the league might as well give up...

and now it looks like cesc fabregas is on his way out of arsenal too.

i might cheer for manchester united primarily, but i have loads of respect for arsenal, especially their manager. i hate what i'm seeing happen to them this summer.

i know yertle won't like this, but i say they should sell theo walcott. i just don't believe he's ever gonna turn out for some reason... don't ask why.

I think Walcott's incredibly gifted, and I'd see what's going to happen to him this season.

And seriously some of these transfer fees are ridiculous. Chopra for 5m? Baird for 3m? Man City paying 8m for that Italian, who ok scored 14 goals in Serie A last season, but when has that ever been a guarantee of Premiership success (see Mutu or Veron or Shevchenko etc.) I'm not saying it's not going to pay off, but there's some massive gambles clubs are taking - the biggest being Liverpool and Torres.

It has definitely been stupid money this season...it seems the premier league has inflated prices due to the extra tv money and the dodgy billionaire takeover club.
