Liverpool youngster Suso fined by FA for Enrique Twitter comment

 

Liverpool teenager Suso has been fined £10,000 by the Football Association for a comment posted on Twitter.

The tweet in question was a picture of Reds left-back Jose Enrique getting his teeth whitened with Suso swearing and calling his team-mate "gay".

The 19-year-old later deleted the remark but has been fined and warned about his future conduct.

Suso has broken into the Liverpool first team this season, making 13 appearances so far in the campaign.

The FA's statement read: "The charge, which the player admitted and requested a paper hearing, was that he acted in a way which was improper and/or brought the game into disrepute in that the comment was posted on his Twitter account and included a reference to a person's sexual orientation and/or disability."

I think the FA have finally realised what a cash cow the social media network can be. Got to pay for Wembley somehow.

 

They probably have some knob trawling Twitter looking for something that could "bring the game into disrepute". Of the 100's of tweets made by people in the professional game every week, they are bound to find something. Hell, Ashley Cole and Rio Ferdinand could be worth millions during a season!

 

Also, do the FA not need a complaint from an "injured" party any more to act as judge, jury and executioner any more?

 

Although unlikely and without any knowledge of Enrique's sexuality, I would love it if he told the FA that he actually was gay.

 

Actually, thinking about this a bit more, are they actually calling Enrique a homosexual with their verdict?

What gives them the right to hand out fines for what players say on Twitter?

 

Interesting angle. Don't know, but I wish a footballer would one day lawyer up and get a legal perspective on these lot.

I would imagine it comes within the rules and regulations that they and the clubs agree to adhere to.

It would be interesting, I suspect the FA might be in a bit of difficulty, effectively a professional body trying to censor the views of private individuals. I haven't seen any other professional body eg. the british medical association etc assume it has the right to censor the views of it's membership.

Fair enough but I'm interested in what Gordon Taylor, Lord Ousley, Clarke Carlisle, Dave Whelan, Patrick Barclay and other prominent LFC commentators have to say on the matter. It would be remiss to let a bandwagon roll by without jumping on. Lets hope the PPJ, PFJ and the Society of Gay Black Andalucian Lawyers get in involved and demand we receive a 3,000 point league deduction.

Seems so, but it would be interesting to see if this would hold up in an actual court. Surely no one would take offense to such banter, and if they did it would be kind of ridiculous. Add that to the fact that he removed the tweet after only a few minutes.

 

The fine is quite harsh as well for such an innocent remark, a warning would be enough. Not that he'd be too bothered about it, but it's the labeling thing again like it was with Suarez.

    • Yes, couldn't name John Mclaughlin. 
    • I might be completely off here but I always got the impression Lampard and Terry didn’t really like Mourinho in a similar way Carragher and Gerrard didn’t particularly like Benitez probably because it’s a lot harder to enjoy playing for negative shithouse managers.  The difference between the two situations was that there were plenty of rumours of Carragher and Gerrard not liking him in their playing days and playing a part in getting him out but since they’ve retired they’ve been up his arse. There was never anything like that at Chelsea but you get the feeling since Lampard and Terry retired that neither are or were particularly found of Mourinho and don’t speak to him either.

Liverpool fans may agree with their captain when you look at the stats. Jurgen Klopp’s side have had more goals disallowed by VAR than any other Premier League team in the 2020-21 season so far. The poll shows just 28% of Liverpool fans believe VAR is being applied consistently, as do 31% of Manchester United fans, compared to 39% of Arsenal and Chelsea fans. And just a quarter of Liverpool fans feel VAR has made football more exciting.  The FA Cup third-round tie between Brighton and Crystal Palace on 8 January 2018 was the first domestic game to use VAR, and it was subsequently used in one Carabao Cup semi-final and the Carabao Cup final between Arsenal and Manchester City. The Premier League introduced the technology for the 2019-20 season. In July of this year, Fifa took full control of VAR from the sport’s lawmakers, the International Football Association Board (Ifab). Since then, there has been an increase in referees using pitch-side monitors for goals, red cards and penalty decisions. VAR continues to rule on factual decisions and advise on matters of subjectivity. Premier League fans still to be convinced Scottish football authorities have discussed introducing VAR, but the technology has not yet been used in professional league football there. VAR was introduced in the German Bundesliga and Italy’s Serie A in 2017 and Spain’s top flight La Liga and the French Ligue 1 in 2018. As with those European leagues, changes have been made in England to try to adapt and improve the system. But the poll showed more than half (51%) of Premier League fans feel VAR is applied inconsistently. However, Premier League chief executive Richard Masters said earlier this year that VAR was delivering on the “principal reason” for its introduction in improving the accuracy of decision-making. “In key match incidents we are up to 94% accuracy with officials, 97% with their assistants, so we are seeing an impact on results and a positive impact on the league table,” he said. What they say about VAR Former Manchester United defender and Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville: “[Referees] look like they have been programmed like robots. They are briefed like mad, they are programmed to the nth degree, they are frightened to death.” Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho: “We’re going in a direction that’s really bad for the beautiful game, the game that everybody fell in love with.” Former Tottenham and Newcastle midfielder and Match of the Day pundit Jermaine Jenas: “The players and managers have been unbelievable in mentally getting over these hurdles that VAR has thrown at them. It’s supposed to help the game, and it’s making it far worse.” Savanta ComRes interviewed 5,476 UK adults aged 18+ online between 20 and 24 November 2020, 2,100 of whom qualified as football fans for the purpose of our survey according to Savanta-gathered data on football fans and their demographic profile. Data were weighted to be demographically representative of UK adults 18+ by age, gender, region and social grade. Savanta ComRes is a member of the British Polling Council and abides by its rules. The full poll is published here       “I’d rather play without it.” “Ruining the game.” “I don’t know the rules any more.” The video assistant referee (VAR) was brought in to improve football. But Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson, Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish and Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne have all spoken out about controversial decisions made by VAR recently. And it seems football fans are also less than convinced by VAR in its second full season in use in English football. In a poll for BBC Sport, only a third of football fans across the UK said they believe VAR has made football better. The poll of 2,100 fans, carried out by Savanta ComRes, shows that while 30% of fans think it has improved the game, 44% of fans actually think it hasmade football worse. While most fans are now given the option of seeing VAR decisions on screen – whether in the stadium on watching on TV – almost half of fans said they believe the introduction of VAR has made football less exciting. The poll also shows: 36% of supporters aged 18-34 believe VAR has made football better, compared with 29% of fans aged 55 and over. 59% of fans aged 55 and over said VAR is making football worse. Arsenal fans (44%) are more likely to believe that VAR has made football better, while 37% of Chelsea fans, 34% of Liverpool fans and 32% of Manchester United fans felt it had improved the game. Younger fans are split on whether VAR is being applied consistently (35%) or inconsistently (33%) by referees. Controversial VAR decisions West Ham v Aston Villa, 30 November – Villa manager Dean Smith said VAR “frustrates everyone but there’s nothing we can do about it” after Ollie Watkins’ late strike was ruled out for offside because of the position of his arm  Manchester United v West Brom, 21 November – “I’m very disappointed with the decisions from the referee,” said Baggies manager Slaven Bilic after referee David Coote reversed a penalty decision, ruling Bruno Fernandes had touched the ball in a challenge on Conor Gallagher Crystal Palace v Leeds United, 7 November – Patrick Bamford said VAR is “ruining football” after his equaliser for Leeds is ruled out because his outstretched, pointing arm is offside Everton v Liverpool, 17 October – Reds manager Jurgen Klopp said he “doesn’t understand these decisions” after VAR fails to review a challenge from Jordan Pickford that injured Virgil van Dijk, while Jordan Henderson’s late goal was ruled out for offside against Sadio Mane
    • 'She was less impressed a few days when we went to pick her mate up from the bus stop. Her mate's name is Rihanna, and it was pissing down that day. So you can probably guess the rest. That's right, she gets in the car and I go "Hi Rihanna, it's lashing down out there. Did you not bring an umbrella-ella-ella-eh-eh-eh"   Rihanna laughed a little awkwardly while Adrianna sat there and fumed. I have no regrets.'     And nor should you have, it's what any self-respecting dad would do.
