This whole Luis Suarez and Patrice Evra saga has left a bitter taste in my mouth.

Like the rest of the club, I have been fully supportive of Luis Suarez ever since the charges were laid on him. But following the events of Saturday with him refusing to shake Evra’s hand before the game, I became very upset. Worse still, only to find out yesterday from Kenny Dalglish that Suarez had said prior to the game he was going to shake Evra’s hand and he did not. The club have every right to be upset with Suarez. He has issued an apology but I think a firmer stance should be taken and the player should know that no one is bigger than the club.

It will be interesting now to see what the club does to Suarez. There have been many calls that Liverpool should sell him after all this drama as it has tainted the clubs name and image across the world. Personally, I do not think we should sell Suarez, simply because he is a very talented player and there are very few people in the world you could bring in to replace him.

Many players have bounced back from such saga’s, just look at Cantona coming back after the kung-fu kick or Cristiano Ronaldo following the World Cup drama with Wayne Rooney. Suarez is big enough a player to come back from this but does he as an individual feel he is capable of fighting through what will come his was over the next couple of months from the media, opposition players and fans? Suarez may simply say, “I do not have to deal with this abuse and I am packing my bags and leaving England.”

Suarez now has to let his football do the talking for the remaining part of the season. He has to play out of his skin and show the Liverpool faithful why they backed him up in the first place. He owes us in my opinion.

What should Liverpool do with Suarez?

    I still cnt see what Suarez did wrong if he dont want to shake hand with Evra is up to him, he does not need to beforced doing something that is not officially part of the game.
    If shaking hands is that serious and is apart of the game then why was it called of in QPR and Chelsea game what happen to Wayne Bridge when he refused to shake John Terry hand.

      Fair point re terry/bridge. But there is a difference in this case as it is to do with racism which a very emotive subject. If Suarez had been innocent then we would have appealed 8 match ban. At the end of the day if someone accused me of something I was innocent of I would appeal till I’m blue in the face. As he was found guilty he should and could of shook evras hand as he told the club he was going to. The fact he didnt proves he is a liar as he lied to the club. Therefore, rightly or wrongly people will also assume he lied about not racially abusing evra. Basically the whole situation has been appallingly handled by the club and KK must take a fair share of responsibility by all but saying it didn’t happen when he was found guilty and his after match comments were cringe worthy nearly as bad as keegans rant re fergie I’d love it etc. I know Kenny has done alot of good for this club in the past and should never be forgotten however in this occassion he has been a PR disaster and embarrassment to this great club if ours. Football supporters at work that support various different teams think Liverpool are a disgrace the way it’s been handled and have lost a lot of goodwill in the football world and think we should sell Suarez even thou he’s a good player and dalglish should resign as we need to distance ourselves from these 2 until it blows over. Wish Dalglish had stayed upstairs and be a living legend than go back in front line and lose credibility.

    Please bear in mind that Evra once accuse Chelsea’s groundman of racism and was later found lying, so we have a compulsive liar accusing another player of the same.

    To sell Suarez just because he refuses to shake the hand of a liar? Some of those chaps at LFC has much less brain cells than i thought?

    Fergie had called for Suarez to be sold for not shaking hands with a liar and a wimp. This coming from a joker who protected a player who kung fu kicked a rival fan, who protects a player that deliberately hacks into the leg of a player and ended his career and in his current squad a player who had sex with his sister in law and a star striker who had sex with a prostitute while his wife is heavily pregnant, just to name a few examples. I can’t recall Fergie were ask to sell those players.

    Please remember that Evra tried to do a Keane (deliberately hacking into a rival player with the hope of ending his career) but as with his usual consistency bungled into his own teammate. Wow talking about a supposedly aggrieved party.

    I think the focus should be on KD, who apart from Suarez, Enrique,Bellamy and to some extent Adams made acomplete mess of our transfers despite being given 100 mill. 20 mill a piece for players such as Downing and Henderson who in most games made us played like 10 or 9 men. Yes, they are missing most of the time. Downing an out and out winger has no goals, no assist, get my point. I would leave out Carroll b’cos his troubles are well documented.

    Tactically, how many times KD had done nothing or leave it too late or got it wrong in the first place when the game was waiting for an inspired change? The MU game is a case in point. Change a side that had beaten them and did nothing untill it’s too late as our team unravel.

    Keep Suarez, Sack KD, that is the way forward.

    • Stevie h says:

      I fully agree with ur comments on KD not being up to the job chan. We need a more dynamic manager to take us up there like mourinho not an aging dinosaur stuck in the 70s with his racist views and outdated tactics.

      100% CHAN
      Tell what is probably going to happen(sadly)
      KKD is going to win one or two cup, which will assure us a europpa league position, we gonna lie 8th in the EPL, with a disastrous performances, but people are going to forget and hail and praise KKD, so he will continue buying surprisingly under par players, who lack the simplest modern techniques, with no on pitch tactics, just playing the same old dull 1930’s plain football, high balls, wing play with players who can’t even DRIBBLE!!!!!
      That’s our story for the next year and a half I’m afraid 🙁

    Luis Suarez didn’t shake evra’s hand (which is his right to choose not to) not because he is a racist, he did so due to his own believe in his innocence, he thought that the punishment was unfair, thus he expressed his feeling of injustice by doing what he did.
    But the press who LOVES Liverpool, took the chance to shoot at the scousers from the pistol of Suarez.
