    Top stats- thanks for this. What happened to Galindo? I remember he was a tall rangy player from Bolivia and he went out on loan- is he doing well? Does anyone know? Even his wikipedia page is very short on info…

    • http://www.arsenalreport.com Joss Bennett

      He’s on loan at Salamanca in Spain, I believe. He’s been injured, though and hasn’t played meaning work-permit issues are even less likely to be sorted soon…

    • http://www.arsenalreport.com Ix Techau

      Last thing I saw he broke his ankle while on loan at Salamanca. I think he’s back to fitness though, I’m sure you can find tons of Galindo info over at Young Guns – easily one of the best Arsenal sites out there. =)

    A little correction regarding the transfer of Vermaelen.

    Great job running this great site!

  • Mosabexo

    Great work .. thanks guys

    Re: top expensive players list , should Andrei Arshavin be the first one?

    Because his transfer fee was between £15m – 18m , there is no confirmed data about 15m

    a simple suggestion that it’d be better to put also players wages, thanks again

  • AFCfan

    Thank you for this. Obviously the data compilation is amazing. Just a suggestion. When specifically using the data to discuss records (like top 5 highest transfer amount) it might be nice to add in inflation. Especially with transfers form the 90’s. I understand thats not easy but would help provide some clarity. Just an idea. Thanks.

    Top stuff. Totally absorbing. Have always wanted to to know how the profits on player sales are taxed – are they taxed as a capital gain or as a trading profit. Either way it is misleading to assume the club has the entire proceeds of a sale to reinvest.

      I actually have a good answer here: because in order to keep statistics on our current players, I need to insert them into the database. But when I do, they’re automatically inserted into the Transfer Centre, as this page is powered by our player database.I could probably remove all incoming loans as well from this page, I just didn’t predict a loan, and therefore didn’t code a ‘loaned’ option into the player profiles.

  • Lee

    Mate well done but you need to sort out the bracketing by each year totals. You seem to have some figures in brackets where a profit was made in some years.

    • http://www.arsenalreport.com Ix Techau

      What year are you referring to?

      • Greg M Cross

        The confusion is that typically a profit is a number with no bracketing such as 25,000,000 whereas a loss would be represented as (25,000,000) instead of using a ‘-‘ sign.

        • http://www.arsenalreport.com/ Ix Techau

          All figures are in parenthesis, and the negative ones have a minus symbol in front of them. That’s just how our code displays the calculation.

        Didn’t we get Wishere from the Luton Town youth team?

        • http://www.arsenalreport.com/ Ix Techau

          Currently changing how our database treats youth players, as it’s not really displaying correctly. Players “signing” at the age of nine shouldn’t really be in the arrival column, as we wouldn’t regard them as a “transfer” (more like a youth intake).

          I think the ideal way of displaying players is to not list internal promotions as signings, and maybe have a separate list for youth promotion for every year. That way we can avoid listing Wilshere as an arrival in 2001 for example, as he was just one of many youth intakes that year, he just happened to make it through the ranks.

          Our new system wouldn’t show Wilshere as a transfer in 2001, but instead show him in a third list underneath the arrivals for youth intakes. That way people can still search to see when he arrived at the club here in the Transfer Centre, but he wouldn’t be treated as a transfer.

    Any chance of information on wages/salaries? Doing some research for an article and that would be invaluable information. That being said, from what I’ve seen that information is almost unattainable haha.

    • http://www.minimanager.co/ Ix Techau

      Unfortunately it’s impossible to find out wages without access to club documentation. We can, however, probably find out contract length, which means we could display years left on contract and such.

    Wenger said Gervinho was 8,000,000£

    • http://www.arsenalreport.com/ Ix Techau

      I know, but Lille confirmed at the time of transfer that we paid €13,000,000 for him, which, at the time, was £10,560,000. Wenger says a lot of things, in this case he probably said a low number to make the deal sound better than it was. In this case we’re trusting Lille more than Wenger, seeing as most French (and Spanish) clubs are required to reveal transfer fees.

  • arsenalguy

    Nacho should say “2013-” and under “dealings” I believe Malaga should be written there since our net spending with them is now around -20m.

    Some of these figures are wrong, based on contemporary reports (Guardian, Times, Evening Standard). Upson’s inital fee was £1.2 million. Arshavin’s inital fee was £12m. Pennant was signed in January 1999, so he should be in the 1998-99 season.
