Vandalism[edit]

Article has been vandalised, needs to be reverted to the following: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Juan_Mata&diff=490832620&oldid=490827576 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dylan1312 (talkcontribs) 23:22, 7 May 2012 (UTC)

Stats are LEAGUE ONLY!!!!!!!!![edit]

Fellow users,

I don't know if the several infobox edits in this footballer are being made out of ignorance (given that some people that are anonymous are editing for the first time) or just plain vandalism and provocation but, i will only say:

INFOBOX reads VERY CLEARLY: Stats are only those of DOMESTIC LEAGUE!!!!!! That's it, nothing else!!!! Whenever i will see it otherwise, i will revert it, even if i have to do so 1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 times!!!

Thank you very much for listening,

Assist Stats[edit]

Assist stats seem to be in a constant state of flux. Can we please use transfermarkt for this, as their league stats are in line with the OFFICIAL Premier League stats.

"Journalism degree" in Universidad Politécnica de Madrid[edit]

I have searched for the Spanish Wikipedia and there is no indication of Mata's 'Journalism' degree in Universidad Politécnica de Madrid at all. There is only one "deportista de honor" by Universidad Politécnica de Valencia. There is also no indication that he is also reading some economics degree. Also, googling reveals that such a claim can only be seen on English websites. Not a single Spanish-langauge website contains the same claim. Therefore it is presumably a myth. Don't know where the origin is though. I suggest remove the corresponding description. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Anon J (talkcontribs) 02:05, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

Edit request on 27 August 2013[edit]

No association with Technical University of Madrid

I have searched for the Spanish Wikipedia and there is no indication of Mata's 'Journalism' degree in Universidad Politécnica de Madrid at all. There is only one "deportista de honor" by Universidad Politécnica de Valencia. There is also no indication that he is also reading some economics degree. Also, googling reveals that such a claim can only be seen on English websites. Not a single Spanish-langauge website contains the same claim. Therefore it is presumably a myth. In fact a full-time footballer like Mata who is not based in Madrid(he played in Valencia) will probably have no time in doing any degree. Don't know where the origin is though. I suggest remove the corresponding description. Namely, "He attended Universidad Politecnica de Madrid, where he read journalism. He is also currently pursuing a degree in Business and Advertising."

edit re: provisional fee[edit]

I'm having trouble understanding why my edit regarding the provisional fee that's been agreed and reported by a WP:RS has been reverted without much explanation by Mythical Curse (talk · contribs) [1] and Whall2004 (talk · contribs) [2]. Dylan1312 (talk · contribs) also left a message on my talk page accusing me of not providing a source. Can you explain the resistance here? Mosmof (talk) 21:22, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

The issue is that there is no official announcement. The referenced article says "Negotiations ... are at an advanced stage, with the transfer said to be 'almost complete' by sources close to the discussion." This constitutes a rumor. And Wikipedia does not use speculation about future sports deals per WP:NOTCRYSTAL. Hope that helps. —    Bill W.    (Talk)  (Contrib)  — 21:33, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
Fair enough, since it cites an anonymous source, but I'd argue that the provisional fee is *not* speculation. It's something that's happened ahead of a transfer that may or may not happen. Mosmof (talk) 21:43, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
And it looks like it won't matter since all three parties appear to have agreed to a transfer. Mosmof (talk) 21:49, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

N Not done This is incorrect. It has not been widely announced that he has signed for the club today. It has been widely reported that the two clubs have reached an agreement and the player has agreed in principle, but he will not play for Manchester United until he goes to Manchester, passes his physical and puts pen to paper and then there are smiling rich guys standing in front of the camera holding a Nike shirt with Mata's name on it.

Actually, what Struway2 says is incorrect. As soon as either Chelsea or Man Utd have confirmed the deal on their official pages, it can be added to Wikipedia. In addition to this, Mourinho's confirmation of the deal being agreed verifies the sources claiming a deal had been agreed a few days ago. As such, this information should be added to the page.

EDIT:https://twitter.com/ManUtd and https://twitter.com/TransferSources TransferSources get trusted sources, but on the one where they said the medical has been completed, they were watching the offical mufc livestream, which(although I have not heard it with my own ears/seen it with my own eyes) is apparently, approaching the person contract stage,I think maybe just to shut every one up, because it's only a signature away, to do it for them ?

If you admit that the transfer has not yet been completed - "They only have to agree personal terms" - then I don't understand why you are making these kind of requests? The article will not be updated until the transfer has been officially completed and announced. GiantSnowman 16:25, 25 January 2014 (UTC)

Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. It says "subject to the completion of a medical examination and agreement over personal terms." Until the ink's on the contract, he hasn't signed. --Redrose64 (talk) 19:42, 25 January 2014 (UTC)

I want to change Juan Mata from a Chelsea F.C. player to a player playing for Manchester United F.C.

Mata completed his transfer from Chelsea to ManU according to various news sources such as AP, Sky Sports, BBC, Reuters etc.

Please change "Plays for Chelsea F.C" to "Plays for Manchester United F.C" because the transfer has become official. These are source from the Manchester United Website. -

Can't be bothered logging in. The third paragraph of the lede says 'On 15 May 2013, Mata won the UEFA Europa League, joining teammate Fernando Torres to become the first players to have held all four of the Champions League, Europa League, World Cup, and the European Championships simultaneously.'. Can you amend this to read 'On 15 May 2013, Chelsea won the UEFA Europa League; Mata joined teammate Fernando Torres as being the first two players to have held all four of the Champions League, Europa League, World Cup, and the European Championships simultaneously.'

Also the lede should mention somewhere (probably at the end of the 3rd paragraph) that 'On 25 January 2014, Mata joined Manchester United FC for a fee of bla bla bla). Thanks 194.176.105.135 (talk) 08:45, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

I may come across as an arse for saying this, but I really don't see why people should do the work for you just because you "can't be bothered logging in". If anything, it probably took you more work to write this message than to make the edit yourself. Lazy bugger. – PeeJay 02:02, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
