I was talking to an Arsenal fan on Saturday who just kept repeating 'we always knew the season started after the first 3 games' like every other club is going to hand back their points to even out their awful start.

Weird little club. Will be bottom half of the table for them this year.

Wild Eddie boy.

There was a thread on twitter recently by an ex NHL player trying to explain that athletes (in this case hockey players) don't make as much money as you see reported (due to state taxes, agent fees, escrow etc.) let's just say the common folk on twitter didn't spare any tissues for somebody who's signed a 5 yr/$30 million deal.

Not saying it's right or wrong, but compared to some other sports, £500K a week for someone like that (or 400k/week for KDB, let's say for a more established superstar) is actually reasonable. 500K/week converts to about $34MUSD/year. There are baseball players (!!) that make more than that, and basketball players make WAY more than that. Given football's international reach, you could actually make the argument that footballers are UNDERpaid compared to some of their counterparts.

It's just that americans don't ever say "Tom Brady is being paid $800k/week." They say he is being paid $40M/year.

That's fair. 

Some of the wages in Basketball are crazy.

Haaland to City looks to be completed (for the most part)

They are saying his salary won't go beyond what KDB is on.

It was always said we wouldn't go higher than KDB who is on (allegedly) 400K/week.

Oh, and I have a vaguely bad feeling about this. He's either going to make us destroy everything in our path, or he's going to be hurt a lot and be completely inconsistent. No middle ground.
