Arsenal sign 'Wee' Alex James from Preston North End
After several disputes with Preston North End's management team over issues like wages and not being allowed to play for Scotland, creative mastermind Alex James decides it's time to find another club. Herbert Chapman is immediately on the case and signs James for £8,750. At the time, the league has a wage cap of £8/week, but Arsenal circumvents the rule by having Selfridges sign James as a "sports demonstrator" for £250/year.
