Fulham - Mountain Out of a Molehill?

Fulham - Mountain Out of a Molehill?

Can you believe all the fuss that`s now being made over the comments Danny Murphy made last week relating to the current crop of bad tackles that have fallen under the media spotlight.

For those who have been living the live of a hermit in recent days might like to know that Danny reckons, and quite rightly in our opinion, that some players get fired up by managers prior to taking to the pitch.

Over the weekend Danny`s comments met with a fair from agreeable response from several current players and managers. Well now the League Managers Association (LMA) have come out and also had a pop at our Danny.

In fact they are so miffed that they`ve issued a statement,

"Two of the three clubs mentioned have yet to receive a red card in the league this season."

"The accomplishments of the managers mentioned should be applauded rather than publicly judged."

"It is inappropriate for individuals to direct criticism at certain managers who are honest, professional and continue to achieve success on the field with their clubs."

"Professional football managers certainly do not incite their players to go out and cause injury to fellow professionals."

"Mistimed tackles by fractions of a second will happen and that will be a potential risk of impact or injury but in no way does it follow that the actions are either deliberate or encouraged."


I can`t help feeling that Danny is being victimized here and that the responses forthcoming are a little over the top.

How about you?

Whether you agree with Murphy or not, the LMA response paints a ridiculous positive view of players and managers. Apparently, all players and managers are 100% pure in thought and deed. I'm surprised they didn't conclude their statement by insisting there IS, in fact, a Santa Claus!

personally I dont have a problem with a word he said and it is refreshing that an active professional have put his opinions up for debate. well donr danny, but it would be nice to hear some support for his views.

describing some of these LEG BREAKING TACKLES as mistimed by a fraction of a second is laughable... excessive force is still a foul, whether you get the ball or not... wake up and read the rule book...
