Deadline day is crazy! Lots of teams have needs, and this is the last day to fill them. Teams need wingers, defensive midfielders, inverted fullbacks, false 9's, trequartistas, deep-lying playmakers, target strikers and many more types of soccer players.
One team, though, just needs something to get leaves off their field. Barton Rovers FC have filled a major squad need on deadline day by going to the store and buying a rake.

This is what savvy management looks like. They identified a need, and then went out and filled it. That rake could very well be the key to their success for the rest of the season. We'll have our eyes on them.
