Tapping up

Recommended Posts

The are quite strict rules about clubs tapping up, approaching, players from another club held under contract to play for another club. The rules are:

 

"if a club wants to procure the services of a player registered with another club, they must speak directly with that club and not to the player or his representatives. The player and his representatives will only be brought in for discussions with the potential purchasing club once the two clubs have agreed a fee."

 

It seems that Manchester United have been using the England dressing room as a recruitment center. Seems the rules need to be added to to also include players acting on their clubs instruction.

Pointless. People will talk and deals get done and discussed constantly. You can't control communication and it's impossible to police properly. I'm sure we've done it plenty.

You can't stop players talking about their clubs and how good or bad they are.

Oh fair enough. Thought it was just speculation. But as others have said you can't stop players talking to their mates about stuff.

Pep does it at the end of every game with us.   Newspapers, News Now 24 and Sky Sources do it for the Clubs and their Agents.  It is how it is.

The Maguire transfer had so much newspaper assistance I'm surprised they didn't ask for 10% of the fee after enabling daily dialogue between Solskjaer, Utd board, Maguire and his team. Now it's Chilwell. Chelsea aren't allowed to approach an under contract player yet via the press he knows they want him,he knows the length of contract on offer and the potential salary. Then there's the England dressing room angle. 

If it's going to happen let's get it done and ovr with, no repeat of Drinkwater leaving so late that we f***ed up the replacement and went half a season a man short (not that Silva really became a regular).

Yeah Tapping up is an issue. We had Madison tapping up one of our youth players who we wanted to keep and convinced him that leaving us and going to play for Rangers is his best option.

 

Unless he's a double agent and we actually did want him to leave?

I’m sure everyone done it to their mates at youth and Saturday/Sunday level, it’s the same in the pro game. If you know a decent player you try get em to join.

It's impossible to stop word getting to a player that a certain club is interested. I would bet most players are only a couple of phone calls

away from someone in every single dressing room in Europe.

If this is just noise to annoy and distract than lcdc should use a 3rd party source to spread false gossip to counter it. Something like 'LCFC rumored to complain about man utd illegal tapping up and notifies the Premier League and FA to investigate!' Its just muck spreading and we shouldn't stand for it. While we're at it lets throw some crap out there about Chillwell about to snub london clubs because there all big headed plonkers.

You've got to be extremely naive to think it doesn't happen basically constantly in football.

Pretty sure this doesn’t happen as would not be fair on lower teams. Surprised so many think clubs would resort to such unethical methods.

I imagine they have banter about it but I’d like to think the players have at least some integrity and report it if they see what they believe is a serious attempt. The FA should come down on then like a ton of bricks but because I haven’t seen any reports I bet they don’t do anything. Someone must have tipped them off about it before.
