Re: World Cup 2014

I did?


A club is virtually always going to publicly back its players. Utd did it with Cantona, Arsenal with Adams etc etc. Examples of clubs ditching players due to disciplinary issues or off...

Re: World Cup 2014

I dont think that had anything to do with it. The release clause was written into the contract extension he signed last year, and that was good business on Liverpools behalf. Barca of course knew...

Re: World Cup 2014

My view was always that he was a fantastic footballer but a terrible sportsman.

Re: World Cup 2014

Lots of precident on that front. Cantona at
Utd, Adams at Arsenal and so on. Of course those two went on to win the league a few times after criminal rather than footy offences, so maybe not a...

Re: World Cup 2014

Probably a factor one way or the other. Its of course possible that the previous apology was more a reflection of the actions of the liverpool management and what we see now is the true character... ...

Re: World Cup 2014

To be fair, with the Ivanovic bite he apologized immediately and didn't try to blame anyone else. That's why this time is so very disappointing for me, its a retrograde step.

Re: World Cup 2014

He has kids of his own, Im sure hes used to it (or something like it, Dora the explorer perhaps based on his kids ages and my own experience!). I dont know how far into his head an outsider can get,...

Re: World Cup 2014

I don't think he knew or cared where he was kicking. It was a red mist situation.

Suarez is being disciplined for the biting, another red mist situation. . Had he kicked a man like that he would...

Re: World Cup 2014

You dont think if that wild kick had connected with the getafe players head it wouldnt have done serious harm?

Im not defending Suarez, he can be a dirty bastard and will do whatever he can to win...

Re: World Cup 2014

Do I need to waste my time gathering half a dozen you tube clips of Keane losing it and trying to maime other players, or can we just take that as read?

Re: World Cup 2014

That wasnt Brenda. He never defended Suarez over the Ivanovic bite, although he felt the 10 game ban was long compared to other biting punishments in the past. I expect hes seething at being put in...

Sure, in a 50:50, but thats not always the case.

Re: World Cup 2014

How is it any different to going to work and risking having your leg broken?

Frankly if my livelyhood depended on being able to run about and kick a ball Id much rather be bitten by Suarez than...

Re: World Cup 2014

Off the pitch he seems fine, and by all accounts hes a model professional in terms of lifestyle and training and attitude. Hes a devoted family man and all that. On the pitch though its a different...

Re: World Cup 2014

How is a lifetime ban justified? I can think of half a dozen players who have done far more dangerous things on a pitch in the way of career threatening brutal assaults on other players either in...

Re: World Cup 2014

The most disappointing thing for me is the shameless attempts to defend him by people who must know that it was just wrong however you look at it.

How can anyone in a position of authority do...

Re: World Cup 2014

I think Suarez is burned out for this year, the disappointing end of Liverpools season will take a toll and for the last month or so he has not been the same player he was in January.

At least,...

Re: World Cup 2014

I see no reason why Spain cant deal with the conditions. But picking a winner is a bit of a mugs game.


Could go either way for Engerland, if the young players gel and they get out of the group...
