Fulham - Cutting Out the Bad Guys!

Fulham - Cutting Out the Bad Guys!

In recent days, following on from the De Jong tackle, dirty play has sprung to the fore in our fabulous tabloids.

Newcastle were so out-raged by the tackle they`ve vehemently called for De Yong to be banned whilst other articles have selected clubs which they believe are at the forefront of the aggressive style of football now littering the Premier League.

Our own Danny Murphy, a cultured artist of the game, has spoken out about the situation, in the tabloid media this morning, and is quoted as having remarked,

"The managers are sending the players out so pumped up that there are inevitably going to be problems."

"You can look at the players and blame them. But every team has a captain and a manager who is in charge."

"The pace some players are going into tackles is ridiculous. There are no brains in the players doing that."


Is Danny right? Is the hurly-burly of the Premier League providing cover for those of an erratic nature?

Continuing along the theme of dirty players, Danny is all for retrospective analysis when I to comes to punishing offenders, although retrospective punishment doesn`t relate to just poor tackling with Danny remarking,

"There`s an argument for retrospective punishments."

"Referee`s can`t always get it right. If there was a board of ex-professionals, they would know what was a bad tackle or whether the decision was right or wrong."

"It`s not that difficult and there`s no cost issue these days. Then the people who deserve to get punished will get punished. It`s not just fouls. I think we should punish cheating, simulation, a lot of things. Why not address them on Monday to get it right."


I think Danny is right on both counts, how about you?

Take a bow Danny Murphy. He has captured both the problem and solution in a nutshell - credit to him.

This is the first time i will hear from a british football talk about the issue, the causes, and the solution. But he has done so because he is fed up too. Most british players, ex-players, coaches will shy away from this because the know their INCAPABILITIES.

In Spain, Germany, Italy, Brazil, Argentina, Holland, France these tackles are not tolerated except in Britain. Yes we all know about the skill level but that doesn't mean you substitute it with bad tackles/get in their face (code word)
