...or has the current football transfer window been a bit disappointing?

I was expecting a couple of "superstar" signings considering the amount of clubs with big money backers.. and whats the biggest we get (admittedly so far)? Nicolas Anelka from a 3rd rate Prem team to one of the big four. hardly unpredictable, or a big money signing, although it could prove to be good value.

so have we seen a shift in the transfer market? are these big players no longer coming to England (I see a few bigger names have moved between clubs abroad)? or are hte new club owners keeping tabs on the purse strings at this point in time?
