Suarez: Keep or Sell?

  1. 1. Suarez: Keep or Sell?

    • Keep him; he is nuts but he is world class and we do not sell world class players.
    • Sell him; he is world class but too much of a nuisance to our club. Time to cash in.
    • Not sure if we should sell him or keep him.

I think he'd do well but I can understand what people are saying. Suarez isn't the quickest, that's not what his game is about. But he is a better player than anything Arsenal have currently, that's why it's so important we keep him out of their grasping hands.

You think negro is an insulting word? (What are you, some kind of racist?)

 

The entire population of South America - plus the FA's hired language experts - disagree with you.

 

Read the report. The FA twisted the language experts' opinions so that they would only accept a friendly or conciliatory use of the word: the FA decided that they would call anything else racist. Bollocks, of course. There are a million shades of meaning between "friendly or conciliatory" and "insulting". Suarez has consistently described the following exchange

- Evra (in English) "Don't touch me, South American!"

- Suarez (in Spanish) "Porque, negro?"

 

If we accept that Suarez's reference to ethnic origin was not in a friendly or conciliatory manner - and is therefore racist, in the FA's terms - then surely Evra is at least as guilty of racism.

 

I don’t doubt your passion- but you are wrong across the board.

 

Negro can be used in a racial context.

 

It is you who failed to read the report. You asked for “one word of credible evidence”, you got one, confirmed by Luis himself ( and, helpfully by Kenny and Comolli).

 

You are right that most words have context- I wonder what the context was in a heated derby against our most hated enemies after Evra had just told him “that his sister was a cunt”?

 

Suarez was guilty of making reference to colour in his language- guilty by his own admission.

 

Should Evra also have been charged? Certainly. Was our handling of the case the biggest cock-up in the history of the Club? Yes. Should Ayre have resigned in shame? Yes.

 

This article is a pretty good summary:

I don't think Suarez would be that great in Arsenal's set up either.

 

Brilliant for Nacional, brilliant for Groningen, brilliant for Ajax, brilliant for Liverpool, brilliant for Uruguay, not that great for Arsenal. Can't see it somehow.

Comolli has an axe to grind. If this is Arsenal bringing in the reinforcements then they are getting desperate.

Comolli got himself a cut of every transfer that he set up for whatever club he 'worked for'. A crook with absolutely no talent in the field of talent spotting - Suarez can play? You don't say? A Houllier sounding, similar spec' wearing twat who we are well rid of.

 

Did I mention that he's a French, and therefore a boy lover? Well, he's French.

Andy Hunter in the Guardian saying Suarez missed Stevie's do last night. I've hot to be honest, I can forgive him wanting to leave and all the other business, he is a footballer after all, a world class one at that. Nothing surprises me in that sense. However if he has fucked off Steven Gerrard's testimonial dinner, a man who's backed him up through all his troubles at the club and a modern day legend in football, and an event which was aiming to raise funds for charity, then that's pretty low. That disappoints me the most in all this if I'm honest, unless there's a logical and fair explanation behind it then I think that's disgusting behaviour and disrespectful beyond belief.

The same bloke also tweeted that Arsenal had told Ornstein that AFC were working hard on other deals as alternatives, but they wouldn't say who.

 

I'm beginning to think that once Arsenal discovered there was no release clause, and were told he wouldn't be sold to them, with a bit of input from Guardiola, Cross' s article in the Mirror and Ornstein's BBC tweets were the last throw of the dice as they tried to stir up the fans at Gerrard's testimonial. When the fans didn't take the bait that was that.

Someone on here did post that Arsenal were trying every rick in the book.

Has that come to an end now?

No idea. I think all they've got left is him handing in a transfer request. But the club appear to be adamant they won't sell to anyone they see as a rival. I think selling abroad is still a possibility.

Arsenal make Everton look like amateurs in the ' bidding for players without really planning to sign them ' stakes.

 

It seems to be familiar to us now. Most clubs even; players are just greedy fucks.

With Suarez not turning up to Gerrard's charity dinner, unless there's a valid excuse, I think he just wants to get out. He seemed pretty fine at the end of last season. Now he seems to want out at all costs. His attitude stinks at the moment. If that's how he's going to be all next season, we might as well fuck him off. Unless he bucks his ideas up, what's the point.
