This just in: Paddy Power are betting on all of Jim White’s deadline day cliches

MR DEADLINE DAY: Jim White must feel like all his birthdays have come at once

MR DEADLINE DAY: Jim White must feel like all his birthdays have come at once

By Josh Powell | Sports writer

Brace yourselves because transfer deadline day is almost here and that can only mean three things. The Sky Sports hype-machine is in overdrive, Jim White looks like he is about to spontaneously combust and your twitter feed is full of people claiming to have seen Michael Owen in a chippy near Burnley.

Paddy Power are once again betting on Jim White’s first cliché during Sky Sports’ deadline day broadcast before the window closes at 11pm on Thursday night – or should that be ‘before the window slams shut’ – a 7/2 shot in the betting.

Front-running phrases in the market are ‘the clock is ticking’ at 9/4 while other likely clichés to crop up include ‘a Sky Sports Exclusive’, ‘We can now reveal’ and ‘You’ll hear it here first’ which are all at 5/1.

Odds are also available on what colour tie Mr. Deadline Day will wear for the occasion while if that doesn’t float your boat you can also bet on the colour of Natalie Sawyer’s dress.

Elsewhere the bookie is also taking bets on what figure Brian Swanson’s favourite toy “The Totaliser” will finish up with and how long Harry Redknapp’s inevitable car window interview will be.
