Looks like they're going to acquire Arthur Melo on loan from Juve.

On another note though, I'm watching the 'Welcome to Wrexham' documentary and its at the part where they're talking about money.

So I google Wrexham's highest paid player Paul Mullin. The other players were whining about wages and how he gets paid so much more than them....

Google tells me that he makes 4,000/week, which, for non-league play is probably a lot.

Puts PL wages into a bit more perspective, granted this is an economy of so many different scales its hard to tell. There are probably PL Academy players making more than that.

Ya it's going to be interesting to see the future of the club next few years

Mcelhenney already said if they got close to the championship or maybe even league one they'd need to bring in outside funds

Which I dont generally think should be too much of a problem, where it gets tricky is when the outside funds start outweighing the startup funds and then they start to lose control.

Especially seeing as they were the ones approved for the initial purchase, that could spiral downhill rather fast.

I do love the shameless promotion though.

Wrexham have a huge match coming up against, and you cant make this up, Dorking Wanderers.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dorking_Wanderers_F.C.

Is their logo a coq? It is indeed.

I think in Sunderland 'til I die they were saying the average League One wage was $2000/week. That was a couple years ago, but it's obviously not close to the Premier League!

And this is 2 or 3 Leagues below that.

United could/should have put that one to bed earlier. But hey, I'll happily take 3 wins and 2 clean sheets in a row. Arsenal will be a good test this weekend.

Arsenal have looked very rickety - especially in defence over the past two games.

Rodgers probably heading for the sack after taking a dig at the club's transfer window after the game.

You know what's been great to watch.
The decisive passes out from the two central defenders as opposed to watching Maguire stand stationary with the ball, point in a couple of directions then play the ball back.

Just read about the sale of Garner. Not thrilled about that — and haven’t heard about buyback option either.

Sancho showing that he can be so dangerous is nice to see, hope Southgate is paying attention

I was hoping that Arsenal could sign some midfield help before the transfer deadline.

Arsenal vs Man Utd coming up this weekend. Should be a good test this weekend for both teams.
