The close season is traditionally a time where clubs jettison their weak players, replacing them with footballers with the skill to take the club one step further, whether that be to qualify or European competition or avoid another year's relegation struggle. With that in mind I thought it would be interesting to see which clubs decided a wholesale change would be preferable to keeping faith with the players who toiled their way through the 2011/2012 season.

It's back, baby. Whilst the rumblings of the transfer window continue to, errr, rumble, it is very good to have some on pitch action to ruminate over again. Even if the result on the opening day wasn't quite what we wanted, frankly I'm still happier than Andre Santos on half a gram of MDMA. That said, as I alluded in the opening sentence, the spectre of the transfer window still dominates conversation and that's a symptom of our ducks not quite being lined up yet.
