I remember a while a ago Liverpool were close to signing Clint Dempsey. What happened there.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool were accused of tapping up Clint Dempsey which is why Mr Werner and Mr Ayre issued apologies to Fulham in order to have them withdraw their complaint to the FA. A transfer was not going to happen after that.}

Thank Ed. Liverpool seem to make a habit of this.

2.) 17 Jun 2016 16:39:33
It's at a stage of embarrassment now. Can we honestly think we can do it and get away with it much longer?

3.) 17 Jun 2016 18:21:31
If you have been doing something and getting away with it for long enough it turns into the norm. Maybe a slap on the wrist is the kick up the hole we need.

{Ed001's Note - thing is we did do so, hence why I got pelters for saying he was set to sign when it didn't go through and he went to Spurs. He was all agreed to join us, but we had gone to him first instead of the club. Idiotic way to work.}

Why not?

Plenty of employment headhunters out there in our ordinary lives, so why is filthy rich football any different?

What's the problem?

Blame the players if anyone, and not the club's.

I don't see how football is any different.

I don't see why Mr Joe Bloggs is any different when his star plumber is lured away for a better wage.

Do we see people moaning then?

No, because they get on with it instead of frigging whingeing!

{Ed001's Note - different employment contracts, they do not require registration to play elsewhere.}

5.) 17 Jun 2016 20:53:05
Just follow the rules of the game and organisations, it shouldn't be hard, especially after being warned. Why do they do it, to avoid the embarrassment of being rejected of the club say yes and they player no?

6.) 17 Jun 2016 22:13:59
I bet the majority of transfers have an element of tapping up its just sometimes it goes more public (like Zeilinski saying that he'd spoken to Klopp in the press) . There are so many ways to contact someone these days you can't tell me that a manager or other club rep never speaks to a player of another team to sound them out before approaching their club. It's totally naive to think that everyone plays by the rules.

7.) 17 Jun 2016 23:09:44
As a recruiter, luring someone away from a job into another job is one thing. But convincing a company to dump a contract, even when it's a one person company, to take up my contract is a) exceptionally unprofessional and b) likely to end in lawsuits surrounding fair business practice.

8.) 18 Jun 2016 02:41:09
I wonder, is this tapping-up behaviour, a long term Liverpool FC habit, or is this about FSG`s transfer policy? As I dimly recalls the FSG (in their early LFC days) said something like: "We won't overpay for any player".

Tapping up players, and also loosing out on preferred targets on small cash principle seems to have become far to common in this club.

It all smells mediocre to me. But then again, it could just be something wrong with my nose.

{Ed001's Note - it was going on long before FSG.}

9.) 18 Jun 2016 08:11:24
Shame we don't tap up some decent player. I would have an issue with it then!

10.) 18 Jun 2016 11:50:31
Ed, do other clubs tap up at all and we're just stupid enough to get caught or what? I just can't believe how easy it would happen, yet other clubs don't do it!

{Ed002's Note - Some clubs do bot the vast majority don't.}

Hey Ed what happened with Emilo Insua.

{Ed001's Note - no idea. Last I saw he was playing in Portugal or Spain.}

1.) 20 Jul 2016 10:41:22
He spent last year at Stutgart as their first choice LB.

Hi Guys and Edds

I'm off on my holidays today and won't be able to check in on any info but I would like to wish you all a merry xmas and a happy new year. Thanks for all your insight and info and awesome reading every day.

Cheers to you all.

{Ed001's Note - have a great holiday mate, I hope you are off to somewhere nice?}

1.) 22 Dec 2015 11:31:08
Hey there's always somewhere to check in on here pal surely I'm away in Lanzarote at the moment checked in everyday pity I'm frigging going back home today tho.

Amazing interview with Klopp. So professional he had me hooked every minute. I'm am inore of the man.
Also amazed at the footballnaut that other clubs have not incorporated this in their training. If this is incorporated at LFC, finally some technical training will purely advance our players skill set cause at the moment our passing is poor.
Happy days
Bring on Tottenham

1.) 10 Oct 2015 01:35:53
I liked the part of the interview when he said, "I don't want Ronaldo or Messi. I want these players, this squad". If I was an LFC player listening to that, I would run through a wall for this guy.

2.) 10 Oct 2015 03:39:20
I think what impressed me most, was obviously his charisma, and his ability to make everyone in the room instantly comfortable and give immediate sense of belief and confidence. I like that he didn't dwell too much on the past, sure he knows how big of a club we are, I doubt there are many in the world of football that doesn't, but was more important for him to talk of the now and the future instead of looking back. I can't remember any manager coming into Liverpool and say we will win the league in 5 seasons, if any previous manager had said that, i think they would have been laughed at, but Jurgen can boast that belief in himself and the players. I have had to pinch myself a few times to believe that he is actually our manager. But he will definitely raise our game and bring success. Every fan and pundit, just seem soo excited and i can't ever remember such a buzz around the club probably since istanbul. I could listen the man talk for hours.

3.) 10 Oct 2015 08:18:02
Instantly gives you the feeling that everything is going to be okay and we're going to move forward and succeed in probably the best things I can say about that interview, also loved how confident he is of a league title in the next 4 years otherwise he's off to Switzerland to manage - could be very special times for us all - to top it off my boy has just been born the day after Klopp has been appointed, great story to tell him hopefully lol

I'm tearing up just thinking Klopp is finally here

1.) 09 Oct 2015 07:25:18
Just passing this on:

Apparently Klopp does "a mean 'Country Road' on karaoke".
So for his first match, how about this version:

Take us home
Jurgen Klopp
To the place, we belong
Top of the league, number 19
Take us home
Jurgen Klopp


Could get the Kop bouncing again.

2.) 09 Oct 2015 08:19:24
My first ever agree with Ron. More proof that it's the start of something good at LFC, the fans are uniting.

3.) 09 Oct 2015 08:47:26
Indeed ron, get the klopp bouncing too.

4.) 09 Oct 2015 09:51:05
Brilliant Ron! I'm singing at work

5.) 09 Oct 2015 12:30:50
I think that would be arsome hearing that on the klopp think everyone should get that going big time



09 Aug 2015 10:48:31
Finally the wait is over can't wait for kick off. Bring it on

Rodgers was proud to be a Red when as manager he was paid good coin to be boss. Other than that he is bang average.
