    I thought by that you meant that the Barca players were going out of their way, against his will, to ruffle Arsenal's feathers. I think Cesc has made it clear to them that he wants to be in Barca and since they love the guy they are just doing their part in making it known to the public that only Arsenal are standing in his way. Which is why I say the biggest culprit is Cesc himself IMO.

    Also, what is illegal in Barca players praising Cesc or talking about their desire for him to join them? There is nothing illegal about that as far I know.
    Well frankly IMO, Cesc looked pretty ashamed and uncomfortable during that incident. Of course he wants to go to Barca but he's still currently an Arsenal contracted player and Barcelona should have the maturity to respect that. Cesc has and he's said that depsite wanting to go to Barca, while he's still under contract he's an Arsenal player and wants to win things for the club. Barca should back the **** off.

    Tapping up = attempting to persuade a player contracted to one to team to transfer to another without the knowledge and/or permission of the player's current team.
    Matter of interpretation I guess, and whether you think the fact Cesc wants to go there is important or not. But you can't deny that Barcelona are trying to destabilise the relationship between Cesc and Arsenal, or the meeting between Guardiola and Cesc were Guardiola was just "checking on his Barca players in the Spanish squad" or when there was talk of them trying to get Cesc to evoke the rule where he can buy out the remainder of his contract. It's all illegal.

    Yeah look, Arse didn't break the rules and for my money Barca are.

    That's for FIFA to decide. I think if it's concluded that players on international duty together can't tell one of their team-mates they'd like him to sign for their club it'll undermine tapping up regulations altogether.

    At worst they're bending the rules. It might be technically illegal but it's unenforcable and, frankly, a bit ridiculous. Arsenal, meanwhile, were exploiting inherent weaknesses in them. Both are fine by me. In any case, I certainly don't think Arsenal have any right to whine.

    Ffs I don't give a suit what was said in training camps. Organising interviews specifically for that purpose is entirely different though.

    David James signs for Bristol City. Didn't see that one. Snubbing European football and more money from Sunderland and Celtic to be with his family.

    Yeah, fairly big coup for Brizzle that. Bet he didn't come cheap though.

    Reports indicate that City are prepared to give Inter Robinho in return for Balotelli. Not sure if Inter will be keen to pay his £160k a week wages though.
