    Atletico reported them the other week for tapping up Greizmann.

    There’s no evidence to suggest that we’ve done that with any of their players. Quite the contrary, Ajax seem quite happy to deal with us, suggesting that we’ve approached our deals with them correctly, plus they’ve made a shitload of money from the deals.

    Their business model is based on nurturing then selling top talent, so it’s not like they’re reluctant in any deal done with them.

    happy for the money, I'd expect.

    We all know it goes on everywhere but Barca cultivated this image of Mes Un Que Club when in fact they are the same, or worse, than any other superclub. Cruyff said in 2015 about them: “Money is secondary. Before anything else there should be principles, values. Barça has lost them.” They lost the values because they didn't have any money. Now they act just the same as anyone else.

    Still, Barca doing to Liverpool what Liverpool have done to Southampton is amusing and shows their (LFC's) place in the food chain.

    Incredibly naive mate.
    Virtually every deal involves tapping up to some extent, whether directly or through third parties.
    I just find it hilarious that Barca and Madrid are seen as these giant bastards, yet every deal we do is whiter than white.

    Spot on, it's a food chain, and every club is a part of it.

    Barca are by far the worst for public tapping, we shouldn't be anywhere near compared to them.

    I agree that getting their players to talk about their targets is a bit shitty.
    I think this is separate to tapping up though, it's just putting pressure on the selling club, tapping up to me is just getting the players head turned.

    Reminds me of when we sold Kyle Walker - it was fine because we had Trippier.

    Or when we sold Carrick, it was fine because we had Tom Huddelstone....

    No Salah, No Coutinho and they’ve put Firminho on the bench o_O

    Come on Burnley, decent chance for points here

    I’m not suggesting we don’t, just that, with the example you posted, there’s no evidence to suggest it happened. To date, every deal with Ajax has been amicable, no angst, reports of wrongdoing or anything to suggest we’ve been underhanded. The repeat business suggests that everything has been done above board. That isn’t naivety speaking, just plain suggestion based on available evidence.

    Let's hope Coutinho going knocks them for six.
