FANS believe Paul Merson’s appearance on Sky Sports News has summed up transfer deadline day.
The Arsenal legend appeared live on TV on Thursday ahead of the 11pm deadline.
However, following a quiet window in the Premier League, he was instead asked about Lewis Hamilton and F1.
He responded: “You would, if they were the dominant one but they’re not the dominant one.
“I’d say it’s a bit like Man United. A bit like playing for Man United. You know, if Man United come for you, one of the biggest clubs in world football, not doing great now but how do you turn them down?
“They’re one of the greatest teams and that’s probably one of the things with Ferrari. It’s the name. Everybody wants a Ferrari don’t they?”
Viewers were left scratching their heads, though, with one writing on social media: “Deadline is dead and you can tell.”
Another added: “Paul Merson is not serious, he has no clue about F1.”
A third fan also joked: “I’m not saying it’s quiet but Paul Merson is currently on Sky Sports News discussing the Lewis Hamilton news.”
The quiet nature of the January transfer window in England has continued into deadline day following a lack of major deals.
In the Premier League, just two signings were completed on Thursday morning.
