Transfer Centre bugs, inaccuracies, feature requests, etc
Use this thread to report any bugs or inaccuracies in the Transfer Centre, or to request new data or features.
Keep in mind that we have a clear definition of the term transfer, to avoid any confusion and inaccuracy. Essentially we do not list youth intakes/releases. We say that an 'arrival' is a player who either:
- Signed directly for Arsenal's first team,
- or signed for youth/reserves, but with transfer or nominal fee,
- or signed for free, but after the age of 16
Therefore you will not see academy products like Jack Wilshere in the Transfer Centre, as he joined the club at a very young age with no transfer fee attached. We also have a simple rule for outgoing players. A 'departure' is simply a player who:
- Left the club whilst holding a professional contract
All other players are regarded as 'own products', and won't be displayed in the Transfer Centre until leaving the club (if holding a pro contract when doing so).
Known bugs and issues:
- Historic squads aren't taking returning players into account. For example: Flamini is listed as being in the first team squad in 2010, even though he left in 2008 and came back in 2013.
