What do the eds make of Jaap Stam basically confirming that ‘Sir’ Alex tapped him up to get him to move to Manutd from PSV after he’d just signed a new contract?
He also goes on to say ‘everyone knows it happens in football’ yet it seems some managers get more stick for it than others.
I’m not trying to excuse Klopp’s behaviour I’m just asking is his behaviour that different to every other manager throughout history? Even the knighted blokes were doing it it would seem.

{Ed025's Note - two wrongs have never made a right bobby, dont try and justify the wrongdoings of klopp mate..


1.) 27 Jan 2019 10:33:40
That’s what I’m saying Ed it’s a hell of a lot more than just 2 wrongs.
Perhaps I am trying to justify Klopp’s actions because I support the team he manages but even you have to admit the bad press he’s had has been grossly unfair when everyone else is doing exactly the same thing and has been since football began.
It seems we slate Klopp for doing what every other manager is doing (talking to players who are interested in talking to him) yet praise Bielsa for sneaking around watching other people’s training sessions without their knowledge.
It just doesn’t seem right to me mate.

{Ed025's Note - it does go on bobby thats for sure, being top of the tree does not help either mate..


2.) 27 Jan 2019 10:58:17
Do you actually care Ed025? I don't. It went on for so long with Coutinho that I just accepted it as much ado over nothing. Did it matter how Coutinho found out Barcelona wanted him?

Either Barcelona inform Liverpool and we inform Coutinho. Or they send an agent after his agent who then tells him. Or Neymar begs him at every I international break. Or their manager meets him for lunch in Blacklool? Which ones are legal? Does it matter how he found out? I used to think it was terrible. Now I just can't see the point in even making it against the rules if I'm honest. What does anyone gain from it?

Everton unsettled Marco Silva at Watford and I'm pretty sure your team followed all the rules when they approached him. Do you think Watford care that Everton went through the correct channels? Did it actually make a blind bit of difference?

{Ed025's Note - we have to have rules MK or chaos ensues, i get what your saying mate but you cant justify cheating..


3.) 27 Jan 2019 11:06:00
Yeah perhaps you’re right mate. Have a good Sunday fella.

{Ed025's Note - you too mate..


4.) 27 Jan 2019 11:23:13
I guess Ed025. I just don't think the rules work. The answer is probably to enforce them better, make more rules to cover all bases, and ban agents from football. That'll never happen though so I guess we'll just have to prepare for Firmino getting tapped up by Coutinho for the next few years 😂.

{Ed025's Note - its far from perfect MK, but the banning of agents would work for me mate..


5.) 27 Jan 2019 11:26:59
I’m pretty sure Everton didn’t go through the correct channels MK. If they had they would’ve asked Watford, they say no and that’s it. End of.
As it was their pursuit of Silva ruined Watford’s season which is exactly what the rules are in place to avoid.
Like you say mate is it really that bad anyway? There’s so many ways to contact people these days it’s impossible to police unless someone complains. Even then it’s got to be difficult to prove.
Jaap Stam tried to cover his tracks by saying Fergie just phoned him to tell him he’s a great player and he’d be great in his team. Like that’s not tapping him up?
I suppose that was my initial point, why does Klopp get such a hammering for it when it’s commonplace throughout football.
I’d imagine at the top level there’s more that do speak to other team’s players than those that don’t. You’re at a significant disadvantage if you don’t.

{Ed025's Note - im proposing giving silva back to watford bobby...that would teach them not to moan.. :)


6.) 27 Jan 2019 11:37:11
I hear that Ed! 🙈 Not working out to well for him is it?
I must admit I had doubts about him after what he did to Watford. Shocking to down tools like that. Especially for a manager, he let the whole team and club down big time.
Where do you see it going from here?

{Ed025's Note - i expect he will be in charge for the rest of the season and then have his position re-evaluated mate..


7.) 27 Jan 2019 11:37:28
Football is like governments. Corrupt to the core. Blind eyes will always be turned for the bigger more important ones and rules will be bent to suite the needs. It’s the world we live in. That’s not me justifying it. Just pointing out that us mere normal people have no power or voice to change anything. We are the puppets.


8.) 27 Jan 2019 11:43:41
Not a fan of Silva Ed?

{Ed025's Note - i like his philosophy smp, but up to now his implementing of it leaves a lot to be desired mate..


9.) 27 Jan 2019 11:50:57
I can’t see them being too happy with the progress this season though after spending all of that money.
I’m your view should your current squad be doing better? Or do you think the players just aren’t as good as you thought?

JK that’s a bit deep for a Sunday morning! 100% correct but a bit much for me in my hungover state! 😂.

{Ed025's Note - not as good as we first thought bobby, and that goes for the manager as well mate..


10.) 27 Jan 2019 12:05:04
Everyone slates Klopp for tapping up bit Fergie was equally as guilty, no mention of that.

Staam is the start of a list of players, just for starters you have Van Nistollroy, he tried to tap up Viera, Tony Adams, joe Cole when he was a youngster.

{Ed025's Note - as i said before drogie..2 wrongs dont make a right mate..


11.) 27 Jan 2019 12:34:12
Klopp took it a few steps too far. I feel though if he hadn't gone to such lengths VVD would be playing elsewhere.

Let's hope he won't do it again.


12.) 27 Jan 2019 12:43:30
I see Valverde is also calling out Guardiola for tapping up De Jong after De Jong himself confirmed he had met Guardiola and he tried to convince him to join City.
That Cafe in Blackpool must be doing a roaring trade!


13.) 27 Jan 2019 12:16:13
Totally agree 25 mate but no one mentions old whiskey nose. that’s my point.

Not a good result yesterday pal. Didn’t see the games, was too busy downing pints of bass in a lovely boxer just outside of cardiff.

{Ed025's Note - everton are driving me to drink drogie mate..


14.) 27 Jan 2019 12:16:49
Ed025, do you miss Allardyce yet? 😂.

{Ed025's Note - yeah MK, like george michael missed andrew ridgely mate..


15.) 27 Jan 2019 12:31:48
Ed025, I think your main issue this season is the lack of a striker. The other 10 players seem OK. But there's no-one making the run into the box or dragging centrebacks around. If you can get a proper striker before the end of January, the season may still be salvageable.

{Ed025's Note - believe me realtofel its not just the lack of a striker mate..


16.) 27 Jan 2019 15:51:44
Tapping up is illegal, end of story. It does not matter if "Everybody does it" (which is false cos NOT everybody does it), it is still illegal. Everybody doing something wrong does not and should NEVER make doing that thing right.


17.) 27 Jan 2019 16:30:38
Bobby B lol. It’s a bit deep for me as well mate. Must have been last nights alcohol talking.


18.) 27 Jan 2019 20:19:18
RedWolf, sitting on that high horse has made you a bit giddy mate. Once again, I will quote Graeme Souness on Sky Sports last season : “There has never been, and never will be, a transfer which does not involve tapping up. ” It seems to me to be a pointless rule, ignored by virtually everyone at the top level, and when someone like Klopp is caught out breaking the rules those with an agenda against him will make a huge fuss while ignoring the transgressions of others like Guardiola. Liverpool have been victims of tapping up as well as perpetrators and I tend not to get worked up either way.

{Ed002's Note - So you be OK if Salah went on strike for 6 months because of it?}


19.) 27 Jan 2019 20:34:55
Ed02, Coutinho did it to us and left us, VVD did it to Southampton and joined us. Life and Liverpool FC goes on and would do if Salah downed tools to get a move. If you can explain to me why the ‘no tapping up’ rule is so important I would be very grateful.

{Ed002's Note - It is completely disruptive to players and clubs.}


 

 

20 Jan 2019 13:16:07
Just watched goals on Sunday and they rightly picked out Salah’s dive and were comparing to the likes of Kane and Vardy and saying it should be eradicated from the game. I absolutely agree with.
However, in the same breath they picked out Ayew holding on to VVD’s waist preventing him challenging for a ball. This they called good play.
What does everyone think? In my book cheating is cheating and if you want to eradicate cheating then it has to be all it’s forms.
You could say Ayew’s is worse as it obviously premeditated and something they’ve worked on in an attempt to con the referee and gain an advantage.

Bobbys Blinders

{Ed002's Note - I am with you about the holding and wrestling - it is wrong. There needs to be an effort to resolve it and they need to get it in to the annual briefing that referees gives each club. Salah needs to get this diving out of the game otherwise we will continue to get the bleating from his agent about him being called a cheat by other players who are, apparently, failing to show him the respect he deserves.}


1.) 20 Jan 2019 14:13:22
Didn't see it so often before (maybe I wasn't looking for it) but this falling over at the slightest touch is now becoming regular in Salah's game. Somebody needs to have a talk with him and tell him to cut it out. Not needed and he has the talent to do without.


2.) 20 Jan 2019 14:44:35
I mite be wrong but I thought eds1 had said that klopp had had a talk with salah about diving. Apologies if I’ve got this wrong!

{Ed001's Note - I think it was Ed002 that said about it, though he is correct about it, I don't remember discussing it. Klopp has had words with him and I am sure there will be more had if he continues.}


3.) 20 Jan 2019 16:31:49
The annoying thing is, if he stayed on his feet, he’d have a decent chance of actually getting on the ball fairly and working the keeper! Last thing he needs is to get a reputation or he won’t be awarded decisions when they are genuine. Remember suarez should have been given multiple penalties in his second full season, but unfortunately had already tarnished himself with all the refs with his self destruct antics prior.

{Ed002's Note - After the second Chelsea game last season where Salah had been booked for diving Klopp had made it clear in his post match press conference and to the player it is unacceptable - and issues had been raised previously about a "star jump" in a prior game against Chelsea and more than one dive in a game about Crystal Palace. It has been asked that Liverpool request referees to give Salah protection from being accused of diving - obviously they cannot do that. The worry must be that his reputation can end up costing Liverpool if valid fouls are not given.}


4.) 20 Jan 2019 17:08:37
Interesting thanks eds.


5.) 20 Jan 2019 17:25:16
Agreed ed2. It’s annoying that some of the best players in the world feel they need to do it, when in reality if they didn’t, most defenders can’t get anywhere near them! Not deflecting anything from salah as he’s a culprit, but the biggest example is neymar, every game without fail. The sooner VAR comes in the better. It might slow the game down, but will eventually eradicate the cheating chappie.


6.) 20 Jan 2019 19:11:10
Valid fouls not given, like the one where salho kicked him in the back of the leg?

For me a dive is when there is no contact. Was watching newcastle highlights and seen perez get pulled from behind in the box but he carries on to then miss his chance on goal. This has happened to salah too. We all know had they gone to ground the ref would have called a pen.

For me the rule makers and implemeneters have to take an approach where they are promoting the behavious they want to see from players. So in those situations a player keeps his feet but get his effort saved, pull it back and call a pen too. Give the defender a yellow card etc etc. Give VAR instant access to replays of incidents in the box. this might be a bit radical, but perhaps for sakho and sah you give the pen for sakho's challenge cos he clearly kicks him in the bag of the leg, and why does a player need to fall over for it be a foul? And then maybe you giv a warning or even a yellow to salah for "milking it".


7.) 20 Jan 2019 20:04:31
What gets me is they seem to pick on certain players to accuse of diving yet over look others, same game yesterday zaha goes down not touched and no mention of it anywhere. In the fa cup Fulham player jumps up falls over no contact yet even with VAR still get a pen, no mention of the dive, arsenal midfielder in the game before they played Liverpool dives gets told to get up by the ref not booked, no mention of the dive, hazard yesterday goes down screaming in the box when aubameyang cleanly wins the ball no mention of him going down to easy. If they want cheating stopped highlight it all and not selective players only. And salah was clearly kicked by sakho goes down embarrassingly like he did against newcastle where he was also pulled both incidents wouldn't cause him to fall as he did though, but how often do you hear commentators say when they do stay up if he was to go down there it would be a pen, refs not giving fouls to players who stay on there feet helps encourage players to go down also. Rose getting booked for a dive today clear foul on him the other week same ref player dives tells him to get up no punishment what so ever. Start giving players retrospective yellow cards for diving, you could ban them but when a player gets yellow card on the pitch for diving it seems a bit much to ban another because the ref never took action or didn't see it. and the same for all the holding and it may be a start to cleaning up the game. Pogba pen yesterday to me was a dive but them incidents like kane's superman dives where he leaves his foot in on the keeper may be a bit trickier to solve as it's down to a person's intepretation of the incident but a lot are so easy to see and deal with.


8.) 21 Jan 2019 00:53:23
Simulation has gone on for decades at every club. I don't see how it can be truely regulated as some legitimate fouls look like the player is being dramatic and some serial divers are very well-practiced at making them look realistic. I don't see how VAR will be the solution when, even on slo-mo replay, its so hard to distinguish between a true foul and a simulation.
Of Salahs last 4 penalties/ claims, i would suggest 3 were legitimate fouls and one was a dive but im sure others would have completely differing opinions (particularly those at rival clubs or those who’s teams he won a penalty against) .


9.) 21 Jan 2019 09:51:24
Spot on, Pt84 and Faithworks. A dive is a lunge forward WITHOUT contact and people need to stop redefining it to suit their agendas. For the record, Salah is going down way too easily (or flopping) after contact and he needs to stop that and not leave himself and the team, penalized in the future for fouls or penalties not given. The penalties vs Newcastle was a penalty IMO, cos it was reveiwed after the game and confirmed even tho he went down easily. The Arsenal and BHA penalties where stone wall as well so again, correct decisions. Vs Palace, he flopped at the first contact which was not enuff to make him go down so that has to stop.

Now like Faithinworks and Pt, I think the media want to pick on who they want to pick on and protect others. Before Salah came to LFC, players like Vardy, Hazard and Zaha have been diving and winning fouls for nothing. I don't remember this type of outrage from the media and the authorities. Also, Diver Alli, Lamela and Harry Klaim were serial divers all last season BUT their hypocrite manager blatantly defended them in the media these same pundits were not outraged about that. Same thing in that Palace game. Zaha blatantly dived with NO contact from Milner BUT there was complete radio silence from the same people who are outraged by Salah going down easily AFTER CONTACT. If you're going to eradicate diving then call it out at every turn and not pick and choose who you want to protect or bring down.

I also agree with Faithinworks, that refs should incentivize those players who stay on their feet by awarding the foul after the advantage is gone. Say if a player gets challenged in the box BUT stays on his feet and misses the chance, the play should be brought back and the penalty MUST be awarded. Such a rule already exists in football BUT it is NEVER enforced as much as it should. That will help clean this up a fair bit, IMO.


10.) 21 Jan 2019 15:26:33
My original post wasn’t supposed to turn this in to a Salah bashing although it is frustrating to see a player go to ground so easily.
He is by no means the only culprit here though just watch Harry Kane and Vardy to see it’s wormed it’s way in to all clubs, players and nationalities. Kane for me is the worst culprit in the Premier League.

My post was more to point out that diving isn’t the only way players cheat but seems to have the worst response. As I said you get a team training their players to grab, block, trip at set pieces and it’s deemed clever play.

There was another instance today when Otamendi stepped across a Huddersfield player to clearly block him from tracking Fernandinho’s run giving Fernandinho an unmarked header. Again the commentator says it’s clever from Otamendi. He made no attempt to go for the ball and clearly just stepped across the defender to impede him tracking Fernandinho. That’s just as much cheating as diving as far as I’m concerned but is viewed completely differently. Why?

I've long since left Liverpool, but what I wouldn't give to be a travelling supporter in the away end at the end of another solid win and see the Jurgenmeister giving it the fist pump to the Liverpool fans. I know a number on here do travel away. how good does that feel?


 

 

14 Dec 2018 20:09:42
With all the Alisson love at the moment I thought I’d post an observation that you really don’t hear people talk about with keepers and that is pace. He has genuine pace and brilliant acceleration from a standing start.
It not only helps when he’s sweeping up behind the defence but it helps him move his feet quickly to make saves and in particular helps him close the angle quickly on one on ones and forces the striker to rush.
Just wondering if anyone else had noticed it because I really don’t think I’ve ever really considered it being a major asset for a keeper before.

{Ed025's Note - i see a bit of a man crush developing there MK, playing devils advocate i think hes a very good keeper who is having an amazing run of good luck, he has saved shots with his leg, stomach, arse, and inner thigh in the last few weeks mate and i know thats spreading yourself well but most of the time they still end up in the back of the net, that sort of luck does not last forever and i just hope you stand by him when it turns..

Next season will see a cape added to the keeper top for sure.

11.) 15 Dec 2018 10:14:27
It's standard operating procedure, Ed025. After we bought him and at the start of the season he was supposedly not as good as Pickford, De Gea, Courtois, Kepa and Oblak and others. Now that he is being called "the best goalkeeper in the World" by many, he is being considered "just very lucky". And there are still people criticizing him and there undoubtedly will be even if he has clean sheets for the rest of the season. Basically, "and the beat goes on". 😉.

{Ed025's Note - i cant knock the start he has had ArAy, they say you make your own luck in this game mate so good luck to him..


12.) 15 Dec 2018 11:20:46
I appreciate your candor Ed25, gritted/ grinding teeth notwithstanding. As for Allison, I don't believe it is just luck, as some define it to be. Luck can be defined as "when preparation meets opportunity". I see this in Allison. The guy is supper-concentrated for all 95 mins. He can have near nothing to do all game long like vs Napoli and STILL pull out a season-saving stop like vs Everton or Napoli. That is not luck. That is a guy who works hard on his craft, doesn't talk to the media and now to some extent, is getting into opposition teams' head.

I also agree that the more you play, the luckier you get BUT in this case, the harder you work, the luckier you get. Why? Cos if you are always at the ready, you will see things before they happen and snuff it out. or as they say in the NFL, "The field becomes smaller as you work harder and prepare intensively". Allison is the best GK right now in the PL. In Europe? We shall see.

{Ed025's Note - its not all luck red wolf the guy has made 2 world class blocks but luck does have a part to play, if the ball hits his thigh and goes in against gomes in the derby and then VVD,s miss kick goes over the bar then you lose, in the same way that his save in the napoli game knocks you out, luck certainly has a part to play in all games but its not totally down to that mate..

I think it was MK Scouser that said they should just let people do what they want. Tapping up in some form will go on in the majority of transfers especially the big ones let’s just stop making such a big deal of it.
The fact is that the rules (whatever they are) are unenforceable in most cases as the ‘tapping up’ is too difficult to prove. There are so many ways in which people can communicate now I just don’t see the point in trying to pretend it doesn’t happen.

Behave yourselves. 2 players asking a friend and former teammate to join them at their new club cannot be considered tapping up. That’s just ridiculous.
They should just have holding cells with no windows to keep players and managers in when not playing or training so they can’t ‘tap up’ their mates who play for other clubs.
Seriously are they not allowed to talk to their friends now? They should definitely ban international football if that’s the case. Imagine all of the ‘tapping up’ that goes on there!
Absolutely ridiculous.

Nice one mate. I’d say you are the bottle job. City lost 3 out of 4 games in December. We draw 2 and this is how you react?
You seriously need to consider watching another sport if you expect to be cheering a win every week.
Posts like this make me so mad. Just at a time when our team needs us you get people like this giving up and castigating the players.
Joke.

Ed25 I don’t think Klopp did castigate him. He just said he’s human so was probably influenced by the offside goal we scored in the first half and didn’t want to give us anything in the second half.
It’s a bit over sensitive of the ref if he took offence to that don’t you think? Plus it was Kevin Friend who is an incompetent buffoon at the best of times anyway.

{Ed025's Note - but bobby in the end you have to show respect to the man with the whistle mate, you might not like some of his calls and i get that, but they are already on trial by TV which scrutinizes every facet and dont need over exuberant dick heads like klopp rubbing salt in the wounds, no wonder they make mistakes, its hardly helping with their confidence now is it?..

Nice one Ed cheers.
I think Hendo’s got better and better in the holding role and last night was outstanding. His anticipation of where to be to stop counter attacks is second to none and we don’t have another player that can do what he does in that regard.
It makes me fume when people say he only passes sideways, they fail to understand his role in the team. When there’s no pass forward on, a lateral pass can open up gaps and that’s his job, to stop counter attacks and keep the ball moving to open up spaces.
As the holding midfielder you simply can’t attempt risky passes as much as you can playing further up the pitch as if you lose it you’re in big trouble.
He’s not perfect but he’s an integral part of our team when it’s functioning at its best.

Typical Spurs fan Hearno crawling out from under your rock when you get a decent result.
On what planet did Bayern dominate Liverpool? We created chances but didn’t take them. That’s it. Bayern played like I’d expect Brighton or Huddersfield to play at Anfield. No attacking at all and when they tried they couldn’t get through us with a midfielder at CB.
I’d say you’re embarrassing Spurs fans all over the country but most are actually like you. Facebook is full of them after a win but they disappear pretty quickly after a loss. Don’t worry mate you’ll go all spursy before long and undo any good work you’ve done so far just like you always do.
Then you can get back under your rock and wait for the next pundit to mention Spurs and League Title in the same sentence so the cycle can repeat itself.

KK I’ve never know being rested to prevent a broken leg. Mee followed through on him and broke his leg, he was just unlucky.
They did the same thing numerous times that game but on that occasion his foot was planted and Mee’s full body weight went through him.
I’d hardly call getting injured from that being injury prone or a sign of needing a rest.
