2018-19 Transfer Window will close 17:00 BST 9th August
Vote was put to the 20 PL clubs, 14 voted in favour, 5 against (United, City, Watford, Swansea and Palace) and Burnley abstained
Window is still the same length, 12 weeks so starts earlier
Football League and European Leagues remain the same but could follow suit
Well a World Cup year doesn't really seem the best place to implement this, will give our clubs only 25 days to do business once it's finished and we'll be at a disadvantage with the rest of Europe as it stands.
That said generally speaking as a fan I think it makes sense to close it before the big kick off, removes uncertainty over players (between PL clubs), managers can prepare for the season accordingly and all 20 clubs face the same squad through the first part of the season.

Dave: Saints are no mugs but we're looking good, defended superbly and so dangerous on the counter. If Micky could fecking release the ball earlier we could be a couple more up.
