WITH the transfer window set to slam shut this week, and the rumour mill kicking into overdrive this week, the big question is, is the January window good for football?

A number of key deals are often struck during the month, such as Juan Mata moving to Manchester United, but most prefer to wait until the summer to conduct their business.

And what sort of impact does it have on Blackburn Rovers, Burnley and Accrington Stanley?

Is it a good thing that the three only have to survive the one month without losing key players or does it hinder the trio when it comes to bringing in new permanent signings?
