I think that's exactly what they're doing
... maybe with some encouragement by Adidas, although I wouldn't take away from it being our new guys going less conservative, esp. as they are now using super-agents for key transfers (Pepe).
Seen some rival fans trying to claim we’re mortgaging our future and this way of buying players will ruin future transfer windows if we don’t make top 4
They’re just used to Arsenal spending less than relegation clubs. ****ting themselves now the biggest club in the world is waking up and flexing its muscle.
Original source of the “40 million transfer budget” rumour has finally been revealed.....
Anyone knows the (approximate) wages Asano, Amaechi, Thompson and Nwakali were on? I reckon they are on about 20-25k? Based on Bielik's wages. Trying to make an excel overview.
Doubt Amaechi and Thompson were on that. Maybe £15k tops all those.
Amazing what you can do on a £45m budget.....
Benge and the rest of the bellends are now trying to twist the figures to make it look like they were correct. Shameless.
Made a table of our transfer business.
Some of the wages are estimates.
Didn't bother with installments/amortisation.
Incoming Fee (£) Wages (£)
Martinelli 6 20
Tierney 25 75
Saliba 27 40
Ceballos 0 60
Pepe 72 140
Luiz 8 120
Total 138 455
Cech 0 100
Lichtsteiner 0 90
Ramsey 0 110
Welbeck 0 70
Ospina 4 40
Koscielny 4+1 90
Bennacer 4 0
Asano 1 30
Amaechi 2,5 15
Thompson 3 15
Bielik 9,5 20
Jenkinson 2 45
Nwakali 0 15
Iwobi 28+6 50
Total 58+7 690
Net 80 (73) -235
(edit: why doesn't the spacing work?)
Please can somebody reply to these idiots and tell them they know nothing.
Great list which shows how well we have done. But I do think we paid a fee to Real to loan Ceballos.
Yes 4m Euros
What's the fee? Think I read something like £3m on this forum at some point, but haven't really seen it reported anywhere.
Also, looking at the BBC table our amount spent is closer to £160m, so there is a £20m gap with my calculations. What did I miss?
So we have reduced our wage bill by 12m and improved the team nice one.
That’s the key right there...
No we spent total 138m. But of course its installments so you looking on about 50M first payments in this summer budget
Hopefully we'll add some more. Elneny is on £50k and Monreal and Kolasinac on £70k and £120k respectively. So looking at an £120k to £170k if we offload two of those. Mustafi can leave to, he's on £90k. Might potentially double those wages saved to ~£25m.
Superb business. Hopefully we can still get rid of at least one of Elneny and Mustafi which will make it even better.
I'm wondering how does our -235 in wages affect our budget next year? Wasn't there something like 7 million addition maximum to wages per year? So if we now got our wages down, is it better to buy someone in January, so our wage budget does not go down next year? I'm not sure how to explain it well. I mean if we get our wage bill -235k pounds/week, next year we can only add +7 million pounds/year, so that -235 just vanishes? Or is it so?
That limit on wage bill increases has been removed.
