      Daniel Sturridge charged with breaching betting rules

      Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge has been charged by the Football Association with misconduct for alleged breaches of its betting rules in January this year.

      It is alleged he breached one rule relating to betting on football, and one which covers providing information relating to football which has been "obtained by virtue of his position" and "is not publicly available".

      A Liverpool spokesman said Sturridge, 29, had co-operated fully "throughout this process" and "stated categorically that he has never gambled on football".

      The England international has been given until 18:00 GMT on Tuesday, 20 November to respond to the charge.

      The Liverpool spokesman added: "As with any issue of this nature, we will allow the process to be concluded in its entirety before making any further comment."

      Sturridge, who joined Liverpool from Chelsea in 2013, spent the second half of last season at West Brom after moving on loan on 29 January.

      He has won 26 caps for England, the last of which came against Lithuania in October 2017.

      An FA statement said the charge against him was "specifically in relation to Rule E8(1)(a)(ii) and Rule E8(1)(b)" which are:

      Rule E8(1)(a) - a participant shall not bet, either directly or indirectly, or instruct, permit, cause or enable any person to bet on - (i) the result, progress, conduct or any other aspect of, or occurrence in or in connection with, a football match or competition; or (ii) any other matter concerning or related to football anywhere in the world, including, for example and without limitation, the transfer of players, employment of managers, team selection or disciplinary matters.

      Rule E8(1)(b) - where a participant provides to any other person any information relating to football which the participant has obtained by virtue of his or her position within the game and which is not publicly available at that time, the participant shall be in breach of this Rule where any of that information is used by that other person for, or in relation to, betting.

      If it is true, he will be banned and can say good bye to a new contract. He needs to clear his name to if he wants to stay here.

      Apparently it’s all about giving people some information that could be used for betting - it’s rumoured to be about player transfers ?

      Does seem out of Character. Unintentional or whatever. Looks like he has been interviewed and the FA think they have sufficient evidence to charge him. Hope it ends well for him.

      Suppose he's being represented by the PFA. We can only hope he gets fair treatment from the FA.

      Obviously being from Birmingham Sturridge is bound to have family and friends in the area. Must be very difficult for any player regarding transfers. I mean you have to arrange accommodation and schooling for your children etc. So there could be numerous situations were so called inside information or betting sensitive information could be communicated innocently.

      If found guilty I would be surprised if they do not ban him after the Draconian ban they threw at Joey Barton last year. It's not good news for LFC because he was proving to be an effective spell for Firmino in a good few games already this season. Fingers crossed they issue a fine rather than a ban.

      Not sure where I stand on this. I can say if it is or is not  in character as I do not know the player personally. Part of me wants to defend D.S, as he is a Liverpool player, but there is another part of me that says "If" this is proven to be true and because of it LFC does indeed refuse to offer him a new contract then the up side is I feel we have kept him at the club too long and now it will force Klopp to look for a quality replacement

      I don't know...if he himself had bet on games he played in or something of the sort, I can see him getting the book thrown at him, but unless they have evidence that he passed along information knowingly that was to be used by someone to scam the bookies, I just don't see how they can charge him with anything....but it is the FA.

      Thing is, these guys talk to their friends and family about their footballing careers, you can't tell me that family members and close friends don't know their comings and goings as soon as the player does. He can't control what someone else does with that information.

      Like someone else said above, FA have a lot of nerve cracking down on this when they allow betting companies to plaster their ads across stadiums and kits all over the league. What a joke.

      Exactly.

      It used to be booze on every player's shirt (and the kiddie's versions until recent times) now its betting.
      Both can be problematical and addictive.

      Its the FA.  Thinks ........ Luis ?

      What evidence do they have the leak about his move was from him? It could have been from West Brom staff. It could have been an estate agent or anything.

      It could all be bollocks but I doubt they would be investigating unless they had fairly solid information and some evidence. If it forces Jürgen's hand into getting an exciting pacy forward in January then there will at least be a silver lining.

      This is an absolute pile of horse sh*t if ever i saw it. Multiple individuals would have had prior knowledge of this transfer or loan in advance. If anyone looks guilty here it would be his agent in my opinion.

      If the FA pursue this they will end up opening a can of worms that will be never ending.

       Sturridge is a vastly experienced player. Been around football all his working life. He obviously knows the score on confidential information. Probably a clause in his contract on confidential matters related to his employment with the club. Players probably get guidance notes as well.

      So He must know he has to be very careful when it comes to transfers, loan deals etc. Who would know prior to the deal going thru.

      Difficult period for him, hope it ends well.

      To tell the truth, i have this uneasy feeling that something is brewing and will explode right in our face  before the end of the 1st half of the season. And this happened, When you go toe to toe with an elite club that can practically buy off anything on this earth, you can expect some spanars to be thrown onto your wheels. if you are a threat to them. Conspiracy theory, well  there are  so much happening behind the scene that  it will be shocking to know what are those issues over the years. I would say, lets open up all cans of worms, if they chose to pick on Studge.

      Is studge case a multimillion or 150 mil dollar transfer that they need to make an issue out of it??? Someone must have lost a heavy bet and is still sore about it. It doesn't make sense to pick on studge when there are much bigger fishes out there. We must remain strong as a club and supporters to whether this storm.

      I take this as a compliment, they could see Studge as a vital factor in our title chase.

      To tell the truth, i have this uneasy feeling that something is brewing and will explode right in our face  before the end of the 1st half of the season. And this happened, When you go toe to toe with an elite club that can practically buy off anything on this earth, you can expect some spanars to be thrown onto your wheels. if you are a threat to them. Conspiracy theory, well  there are  so much happening behind the scene that  it will be shocking to know what are those issues over the years. I would say, lets open up all cans of worms, if they chose to pick on Studge.

      Is studge case a multimillion or 150 mil dollar transfer that they need to make an issue out of it??? Someone must have lost a heavy bet and is still sore about it. It doesn't make sense to pick on studge when there are much bigger fishes out there. We must remain strong as a club and supporters to whether this storm.

      I take this as a compliment, they could see Studge as a vital factor in our title chase.
      You don't know how ridiculous your theory is. Everybody knows the legion of doom are behind this.

      I could be the minority here but he knows the rules. Its all a daft situation we could really do without. Deal with it and quickly move on before it can do any damage

      What rules is he supposed to have broken?

      By the sounds of it, someone found out he was moving to West Brom on loan.. the shock.  :roll: Anything more?

      I feel keen to know how they know it is Sturridge that leaked this and not any of the following.

      Another Liverpool player, perhaps even somebody in u23 reserves.
      Jordan Henderson <--- just kidding about that one.
      West Brom staff.
      Sturridge's hair dresser.
      A hacked phone or email (remember the big waste of tax payers money to give celebrities compensation for a similar thing)
      An accidentally miss sent email(the amount of times people get CC'd into things I shouldn't have been)
      The FA themselves.. believe it or not the staff at the FA are infact Humans.... so no excuse there.

      For them to charge Sturridge suggests they have some evidence, now if they don't have any solid evidence then I think Liverpool and Sturridge will have a massive claim against the FA for deformation, sabotage and psychological stress. It is in the FA and the public's interest to know otherwise fans will assume it's a total stitch up and the division between Liverpool fans and FA will be stretched bigger than a string in a wormhole. FA needs to be careful, we could easily put the middle finger up to FA and join this European Super League that is being rumoured and with crap like this it will just push us to leave the PL to escape the FA's shackles.

      Even if they have evidence that he told someone that he was moving to West Brom.. it's hardly a shocker is it.

      I bet a majority of players tell friends and family before they sign. That's one of the obvious tools that the media use to get their  articles. Obviously, a player will tell his spouse/partner about a move as they will need to agree to it (e.g. Sanchez to Liverpool), and what's to stop the spouse/partner from releasing the news?

      It happens all the time. No way is Sturridge the first and only.

      The fact that they seem to have accepted that Sturridge did not place bets, but that someone had 'inside' information is just ridiculous.

      Good piece in the Mail today by Martin Samuel pointing out the Bookies get inside information from time to time but if a punter gets a wif they shout foul. They are happy to promote a market that punters base their bets on next to no information. Having knowledge of a sport or a sports related issue is not illegal.

      Obviously the FA would say it's not their job to protect bookies, they are trying to prevent players from exploiting inside info that is not generally available, not to the bookies or the general public.

      Could claim that the Bookies accept that as a risk when the open such a market in the first place. Obviously can't have a free for all in relation to inside info but in this case, unless Sturridge has wilfully and deliberately set out to profit or help others profit, he has no case to answer.

      Bookies shouldn't offer markets on sh*te like transfers if they don't like to lose out.

      They're quick enough to profit on all the bogus transfer rumours that cause punters to place bets.

      That scenario would put Sturridge in the frame at least. He knows the score and has been a pro long enough to know the rules. Doubt it's going to come down to checking his phone records or anything. Not going to give Plod a ring are they. Looks like a case of loose talk. Some throw away remark that somebody has picked up on second or third hand, took a punt, spread the word and the Bookies have spotted a betting pattern and have alerted the FA.

      Under those circumstances I don't think a ban of any kind is justified...but the FA won't let justice get in the way of their agenda.

      In any case I blame the bleedin' Tories.

      Then again what sort of control do the FA expect players to have. Her indoors has to arrange stuff if they are moving. His relatives, probably still live in the Birmingham area. They might have let the cat out the bag or maybe someone heard a me'ow, and before yer can say stuff the Tories, the money is going on a West Brom loan deal.

      Did hear they were offering 66/1 against him going to West Brom....poor old Bookies eh....

      But what are the rules?

      You can't tell me that players are supposed to keep a vow of silence? Sworn secrecy?

      There are numerous people who will know about the movement of a player, and many of those will be close family. It simply has to happen. Can you imagine the situation with a player's wife/partner. "Where were you last night?", "Oh, I've just signed for Barcelona. We're moving to Spain. We have a new house in a quiet town. I sold ours. The children have a new school. I couldn't tell you before, but it's been confirmed today so...".

      It's ludicrous. Look at transfer day with players openly driving into Club car parks for medicals. It's hardly secret stuff.

      Unless his Cousin comes along and says Danny told me to put money on him leaving he has no case to answer. The FA cannot dictate what conversations family members have. If a player says he fancies scoring today and then does on that basis he could be in trouble if one of his family puts a few quid on him.

      erm yes they are, its called a f**king NDA, when there is a possible transfer occurring the player should not go blabbing to all his mates about it, its the same in almost all employment contracts concerning confidential information.

      It took the feckin' FA best part of 2 months to decide not to charge Firmino over allegations that he racially abused Mason Holgate, the Everton defender.

      How long will they deliberate over this latest attempt to do Sturridge. They need to get to the bottom of this quickly as speculation is rife. Get it done sharpish. Just wonder how much representation he's getting from yer man Taylor over at the PFA.

      Daniel Sturridge: England forward given more time over alleged betting breaches

      Liverpool forward Daniel Sturridge has been granted more time to respond to a Football Association charge over alleged breaches of betting rules.

      The 29-year-old now has until 11 February to respond after being charged in November.

      It is alleged Sturridge breached one rule relating to betting on football, and one which covers providing information relating to football.

      A Liverpool spokesman said he had "co-operated fully" throughout the process.

      The club added that the England international "stated categorically that he has never gambled on football".

      Sturridge, who joined Liverpool from Chelsea in 2013, spent the second half of last season at West Brom after moving on loan on 29 January.

      He has won 26 caps for England, the last of which came against Lithuania in October 2017.

      https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/46432190


      Wonder why he's been given more time?
