Why is it paranoid to suggest that Man City might be tapping up a young talent in Alli subtly and trying to turn his head?

Do you think they are they above this sort of thing? My entire point was, who is it? Does anybody know?
Who cares? What do you propose to do about it anyway even if you find out who it is?

All of our players could potentially have their head turned at any England gathering anyway.

..... could happen in fucking Tesco’s come to think about it. Pep and his entourage could be hiding in the frozen section :D.

And yet, if he did leave to go to Man City you would have numerous people on here saying he has been tapped up because it would be the truth.

Same thing happened with Bale, people pointed out early on that his head has been turned by Madrid and you had people on here denying it right until the last minute, then when it happened, meltdown "Fuck him" "Madrid tapped him up" things that were pretty apparent to many of here before it happened.

Do you honestly believe a man would attempt to tap up Alli in the middle of a crowded tunnel where he knows cameras are watching him?

Pretty sure if he was being tapped up it wouldn't be in front of cameras in the Man City tunnel mate, I'm sure they would contact his agent in private on the phone which is something that most probably happens on a daily basis with all top players.

The fact that you're worrying about a conversation between a random and Dele after a match which could literally be about ANYTHING and you choose to believe it's about that is funny to me.

He literally covered his mouth with his hand when he was talking to him, I believe anything can happen in football these days.

Are people forgetting what Poch wrote in his book about how he was worried Dier was being tapped up in the tunnel after the game against United?

I wouldn't put it above Mourinho or City to do things like this.

I guess Poch is paranoid as well LOL.

Poch thought Dier was literally being tapped up in the tunnel after the game against United mate, does that also make him paranoid?

He also covered his mouth when he was talking to Dele etc.

I am not worried, I admit, it bugged me when I watched it because I feel like Dele is young and capable of being manipulated, however, whatever will be will be, what I hate however is that this sort of shit happens in football and it's one of the reasons I hate clubs like City and Chelsea and I do want it to stop because it is taking the enjoyment out of the game.

Just because you take the belief that everything in this league is clean and uncorruptable doesn't mean that it's true, just like I could be completely wrong about my perspective, do you never question anything? Even your own opinions?

Yeah but Mourinho himself, not a random...If Pep was seen having a conversation with him which looked a bit dodgy I'd probably show a bit more understanding but these conversations between rival staff members/players and our players go on all the time behind closed doors, it doesn't mean every conversation they are trying to tap them up ffs. Have you not seen when players talk they always cover their mouth when they speak to each other, it's nothing new.

I don't understand why you'd worry over something like that, players get encouraged all the time, if they want to leave they'll leave, if they want to stay they'll stay. Bar Walker and most probably Rose in the summer our players will continue to be here at Spurs, that says more about the situation then your overly paranoid thoughts.

Just because there is corruption in today's world it doesn't mean you literally have to question everything that looks untoward in your view, ultimately I don't see the point of being paranoid over something you have no control over anyway, chill out lol.

Dier was talking to Mourinho, not a complete randomer.

There are more people making a fuss on here about me asking who it was talking to him than me actually being bothered about it lol.

All I asked was who it was, like I said, it was bugging me simply for the fact I was wondering why he was talking to him in the tunnel, it was a simple question that has been met by overeaction from people who seem to care a ridiculous amount the second anybody mentions possible corruption or tapping up etc.

I would say, why can't people just accept others have differing opinions, if you disagree that's fine but no need to make a huge deal about it.

Also, on your initial point, I would argue that it would look far too suspicious if a manager was talking to a player in the tunnel, I think it would be borderline idiotic for a manager to do so because it does look suspicious, hence why Poch was worried about Dier.

I am not overly paranoid, either, whatever will be will be, it just irritates me that this sort of shit happens in football.

Well you didn't really say that did you, you said it looks 'weird' and you don't like the look of it which tells me you think that a conversation between two pro's is abnormal yet we see it going on all the time literally in every match. You obviously see something that makes you scared, thankfully the majority of others don't. This is not called making a fuss and over reacting, it's an reaction of your initial overreaction to such a minor thing.

Yeah I can definitely see Pep instructing one of his team to BLATANTLY tap up Dele in front of a camera, because that's not anymore idiotic at all is it :ROFLMAO:

I don't get the point about accepting a differing opinion, are you aware of how forums work?

I literally can't think of anyone else on this forum who would get worked up so much over two people having a conversation and pointing it to a conspiracy and alleged tapping up of one of our players, honestly man up ;) lol

I literally just asked who the bloke was, go back to my original post, I thought he might be someone from our staff originally.

lol it doesn't "make me scared" I couldn't give a toss if Dele stayed or left, that goes for anybody in our squad, if they don't want to be here then that's their choice, plenty will come and go, I just don't like tapping up, not saying that's what is happening here, I am simply saying I think it is a bad part of the game.

My follow up posts stated it looks weird because it does, that's my opinion, like it or leave it, that's your choice.

You can call me idiotic and throw all the other shit you wish to fling towards me, makes absolutley no difference, frankly it's just boring now, if people don't like my posts they can either ignore them or accept them, I am open to a different opinion, I accept you disagree with me and that's fine, let's just leave it at that because I can't be bothered with the back and forth.

Yes, I am aware of how a forum works, hence why I am saying, if you disagree with me, that's fine, I accept you have a different opinion, I am asking that you accept I have a differing one and leave it at that, I don't understand why people have to continue on about it, if you disagree just state that's the case and move on like I am doing right now.

lol man up, come on now :ROFLMAO:.
