Bobby Duncan

Just read that the lad has signed for Fiorentina after the stuff in the papers last week about the club bullying him.

Is he a big loss? Not sure how highly he is rated?

I wouldn’t quite call it the stress and bullied card as it seems there was some bullying going on there but you’re right agents play too many games

How would you know what ‘seems’ to have taken place?

By the agents quotes

Not to mention how he handled moves for Berahino etc. He’s been sacked off by Duncan as well.

Well I was going by the quotes and if that was true, which you pointed out it isn’t, then that would have been bad form. Like I said in my original comment agents do play a lot of games and in this case they did

The way I see it Liverpool were asking Duncan to stick to the contract he originally signed. I can’t see how’s that’s bulling the lad. They didn’t want to give him a new contact? Perhaps they wanted him to prove he deserved a new one. LFC held him against his will? Again they just wanted him to stick to his original contract while he continued to develop in the youth team.

To Duncan and his agent it’s bullying, to LFC it’s asking the lad to do his job. Like previous posts mention you don’t always get your own way at work. In football the player has more power than most ordinary employees.

It is bullying if LFC pressurised him to accept an existing deal even though it is obvious he's worth more.

At the end of the day Duncan signed a contract that he didn't want to honour. He then went public about how not wanting to honour a contract because,he wasn't getting playing time at an elite football club at 18, was giving him mental health problems. So much so that he couldn't leave his room and only use social media whilst managing to force his was to his third club in two years.

Seems a top lad.

Irrespective of any other comments, TOOR, I strongly suspect that you have a point, taking into consideration the circumstances, and that mental health issues, if indeed he had any, evidence of seekiing psychiatric help, either from the club or elsewhere prior to his agent going live - or tonto - would have underlined his claim.

The fact of the matter is, he's gone, and I strongly suspect he will never come back. No matter what way the issue was looked at, by Reds fans or others, the public claim made by his agent on his behalf damaged him below the waterline, damage which I suspect he will take a long time to recover, if ever.

Moving from a club that actually gives chances to youth and plays an attacking system to one in a country where you don't speak the language is probably the most damaging for him.

If honouring a contract is bullying the world is in trouble.

If straight talking (even if we did tell him he wouldn't get a new contract) tgen the world is in trouble.

People need to realise that this is an adult, alebit a young adult, old enough to go to war as the saying goes. If he doesn't want to honour contracts of hop and move as he sees fit then he's going to have problems
