Tactical for Liverpool. January is the "best" month missing Suarez. Many matches and then he is ready against Tottenham and United in February again

while livepool drop point after point because their only goal scorer is gone, there is no "tactical" advantage

after been out for so long time (he will not be able to play any matches for Liverpool) I don`t think he is in good match shape when he comes back. Good for United that he is back again when we are meeting.

So they're admitting that he is guilty without actually admitting he is guilty. Typical.

Its there fault! They are the ones who basically dropped him in it by saying it meant something differnt in his country after he came out and said he said nothing. They cant then go ahead and say they want to dispute the fact he said nothing can they? It would make them look even more stupid.

this is over with so i will not bother explaining the whole thing.

but a warning for a City fan, MU will try to stop you on or off the pitch, your team is next.

Grow up son, what would United stand to gain from Suarez's ban? Liverpool aren't title contenders and we dont face them until suarez is back. There is no validity to your argument.

Stop embarrassing yourself with your conspiracy theories, it's sad

And still the club keep saying that it was just evras word against suarez but the FA had many cameras and had the help from lip reading experts. so no not just evras word, about 10 other cameras to.

from the report:

- lip reading experts cant find a thing because the the face was obscured during the time the insult was allegedly used repeatedly

SWORDF1SH3836d ago (Edited 3836d ago )

"Mr Suarez's evidence was unreliable in relation to matters of critical importance. It was, in part, inconsistent with the evidence, especially the video footage."

Video footage was used.Maybe not lip reading experts. I got confused with this

"The entire conversation took place in Spanish and linguistic experts Professor Peter Wade and Dr James Scorer helped the panel with the meaning of the phrases."

Also in the report suarez admits calling him negro and to pinching evra yet he claims it was friendly. also suarez gave different versions of what happened at different times, evra was consistant.

Why are people sticking up for him. Modern day football in england shouldnt accept racism even if south america does. If he uses terms like negro then he should play in uruguay
