In yesterday's The Sun newspaper (English tabloid) there was a report about Arsenal seeking action on Chelsea's illegal approach for Ashley cole, now I know it isn't the first time that this has happened.

So what do fellow XT'ers think about this situation of Poaching or "Tapping up"?

I think this sort of sneaky dealing happens all the time. Thats how deals are made.

There has been too much whining over the past couple of weeks by Wenger and Fergie. Mourinho just stays cool and does what he's supposed to do.

Kenyon's been doing it for years while he was at Man United and now at Chelsea. It's about time he's been caught for it.

Other than contacting the agent or management team of a player to see if he would be interested in a move to your team, there should be no contact between a player and a club before the 2 clubs have discussed a move.

Unfortunately, there are some clubs who have made it policy to unsettle players and work deals with them without the players club being involved until after the player has agreed to leave and the club can do nothing to prevent it. :depress: Sad, but true.

Many deals were made from this. Buying club want a better confirmation from the player before the offers. That RVN deal... think it was fergie.

Strange... why did Kenyon and Mourinho need to appear in person... they have their own 'agents' to do that. and where is Acole's agent?

Ashley's agent found out about it like everyone else did - in the bloody papers! If he knew about he has to contact Arsenal first before any talks between Cole and Chelsea can go ahead.

The interesting thing is that fans never mind it when THEIR club is the one poaching players – but when it's their players that are being poached by other clubs, it becomes an outrage. :lala: :D

Aren't we fans just horrible? :embarass:
