If you look at the guys making $35k, you will have never heard of most of them. I don't think they need to raise the minimum by that much because it's unlikely that these guys will ever play and a limited salary seems to be fitting for a guy that doesn't add much value to the team and could be easily replaced. I would say maybe moving the league minimum to $50-60k seems about right.

The bigger issue is when you look at a guy like Chris Korb for DC United. He's on $49k a year and features regularly. When you have regular starters earning less than $50k and other starters in the league with multimillion dollar contracts that's when it starts to get a bit contentious.

You should really focus on tweets that mean something.

What I found interesting what that he turned down Werder Bremen because England is his first choice. Seems like a more optimal situation than not getting paid or playing any matches for the first few months of the season.

So Juan prefers more $$ than getting consistent playing time elswhere ?? I don't blame the guy.

So he turned down Werder Bremen, one of the biggest clubs in Germany because he wanted to play in England where he really had no chance of playing, having previously had two work permits rejected. And now he decides to go on trial to lowly Wolverhampton, in England, yet zero circumstances have changed and he'll be just as likely to get a work permit denied again. WTF is up with this kid!?!? He might just make a great footballer because the kid doesn't seem very bright at all! That or he has one of the worst agents in history!

This is as perplexing as the Freddy Adu Blackpool trial. Juan had a valid contract with Stoke but couldn't get a work permit. Why go on trial with a team that won't be able to sign him due to the work permit restrictions?

Cycle of bad decisions. This is not the first and this won't be the last bad decision Juan makes. Will continue for years I am going to guess.

I read on ESPN that he bought property in Cypress to gain an EU passport, so there is a change in circumstance. (as far as the work permit is concerned)

If it were so easy to get EU passport via buying a small property, then everyone would do it....why haven't others done the same? Bought a small property in Cypress or elsewhere?

I did a quick google search and the initial housing price has to be $444,000, then the person must deposit $63,500 in a Cypriot bank. Not sure most American soccer players have that type of disposable income lying around to secure an EU passport.
