To be honest I thought at the time that it was a bit of a silly thing to do. 

 

What, him wearing a t-shirt in support of a team-mate who'd been in a contentious, "balance of probabilities" moral situation?

 

Or him spitting at someone?

I just think carra is in an impossible situation here. With everything that's going on around the game with regards racism in the game, he's just put on the spot and any hint of supporting racism will be jumped on. Regardless of if we like the decision of Suarez being found guilty, he was found guilty. And because he's a little cunt, it's easy for everyone to believe he's guilty. I like the fact the players came out in support of him, but I can see the other side. All carragher is doing, as he often does on the subject of football in his bid not to show his red bias, he hits the wrong note. I wish he hadn't said it, but I think it's understandable.

Weird man, you are. The epitome of the kind of knob that fans of other clubs mock us for having as supporters. Strange Scando bloke that pays hundreds for tickets and always talks about ‘bitters’ and ‘chelshit’ whilst trying too hard. If you’re on Twitter I bet you sign off on all your Tweets with a #YNWA at the end. 

 

Couldn't you say the same about me?

And I'm much much further away than Scandinavia.

#YNWA,CT

I don’t think you’re a try-hard, J. If you think you are then I’m afraid you’re not trying hard enough.

Silly is more forgivable than abhorrent.

 

So, he's apologised for the silly thing.

Why is there a suggestion that Carragher was only responding to questions?? He INITIATED the conversation, just watch the video - Suarez was not even a conversation point until Carragher brought him up. --> https://www.skysports.com/football/news/29327/11841683/jamie-carragher-liverpool-made-huge-mistake-with-luis-suarez-t-shirts-after-patrice-evra-racism-row

 

Its national TV; it was very clearly a pre-orchestrated conversation to have and a very convenient way for Carragher to try and paint himself as a "moraliser" given recent exploits. Evra & Carragher, what a rap-sheet they have between themselves, what between spitting, headkicking fans, lobbing coins, being accused of homophobic abuse, grappling team mates on the pitch. Bastions of good moral standards.

Carragher is a xenophobe, his comments and actions towards Rafa and the other Spanish-speaking players at the time and later leaves little doubt about that. Him selling out now to stay on the Sky payroll is just a continuation of this. If it were up to Carra we would have Alan Curbishley, Hodgson or Eddie Howe managing us with a team of 11 British players.

Go back and have a look at what Dalglish was saying at the time. He constantly went out to bat for him. The way we behaved at the time was wrong. Evra is a prick but the siege mentality the club created at the time albeit with good intentions didn't help anybody and probably made the situation worse. 

I’ve got nothing bad to say about Kenny’s reaction. After all it was him who sanctioned the T shirt stunt in the first place, the same incident Carra’s now apologizing. Kenny was the only one at the club showing any dignity and rightfully expressed his support for Suarez.

Our owners on the other hand, showed cowardice in the true meaning of the word.

And after they backed him, he still continued to bite people and agitate for moves every summer. He can fuck off. 

What a shock that he wanted to leave a club that didn't support him properly through that period. I have no sympathy with the biting, but that whole story was a complete stitch-up and the lack of balls we as a club showed then still grates me.

Was right?  What's to say he didn't think completely differently at the time, and has just changed his mind now because he thinks it opportunistic or politically correct, or he wants a Murdoch salary, or he's really an Everton supporter, or whatever.

 

We have no idea what he thought at the time - just what he supposedly thinks now.

 

For instance, at the time, we'd have never thought in a million years that he'd spit at someone.

 

 

 

I'm saying he was right in what he said on Sky, obviously I don't know what he thought at the time.

Very polarised views. I think evra was a piece of shit in a wholly engineered, distateful episode. Racism is racism and we must fight it whenever and wherever we can.

 

In the heat of the moment, goaded by an opponent, anyone can say anything. Iknow I have and Ive regretted it afterwards. It takes a big man to say 'sorry' and despite what people may think, an even bigger man to say sorry on a flagship sports programme.

 

I dont know whether Jamie was co erced into this or, it was a pre / post match discussion brought up because of recent events with the national team or that FA Cup game where the players walked off over abuse. What is clear is tv expects people to talk and expand on their reasoning. Jamie's been a bit of a dick recently with the spitting episode so was probably being contrite and offering an olive branch at the same time.

 

I can only speak for myself. I didnt think the t shirt thing was a good idea at the time. I love Kenny and wont say a bad word against the man after all he has done for the club and fans.

 

If people want to think Jamie is a cunt and no longer a club legend for what they see as an act of betrayal, that's ok, it's their belief and right to think that.

Carragher had literally one option last night and he took it. Was he to say live on air "Patrice you're a cunt and a liar"? He is that, we know that and I'm sure Carra does too but we need to accept they won that particular battle.

That's the top and bottom of it.

 

If he'd have taken any other line - or tried "No comment" - he would have been branded racist and never would have worked again anywhere. 

 

Ironically, the line he did take, "we supported him because he was one of our own" is much more racist  (by complicity) than saying "we supported him because, as you know, he's innocent, you lying cunt".

What so he tried to force through a move to Arsenal because the club didn't support him ?

I genuinely don't have the energy to get myself worked up about this, and I don't want to don the tinfoil hat but this genuinely does have the whiff of Sky engineering circumstances to shoehorn a big Sky-angle story into the zeitgeist. In a period where racism is a much-debated topic, they've put a rarely-used TV pundit involved in a historic major racism story onto their flagship programme next to a regular analyst who was loosely connected with said story, in full knowledge that said incident would come up which would force Carragher to either apologise / show some sort of contrition, or dead bat the story / defend the club's conduct.

 

Either way, in a massive raft of racism pieces in the media, Sky get a SKY EXCLUSIVE story - one of either "Carragher in Evra racism apology" or "Carragher in fresh Evra racism storm." To be honest I doubt he had much option - his only other alternative would be to refuse to appear and that would bring its own problems - exacerbated by the fact that Carragher himself is on a short leash following the spitting stuff. He's dancing to their tune, so he doesn't get to distance himself from their editorial agenda unilaterally. I don't like it at all but I don't really blame him - this is where he is now that he owes them one following his own rehabilitation after gobgate.

 

More annoyingly though, this is just another example of the UK establishment applauding itself for a job well done by "tackling" complex issues at the most superficial level whilst fundamental inequality exists pretty much everywhere in society. But Sky got Carra to apologise to Evra so well done them, racism is fixed and that.

Evra is vermin. Sadly this utter cunt will continue to get air time in the UK because by not having him in our faces will result in howls of "racism" and the British media will wheel this guy out as a previous "victim", making him an ideal hero in today's current climate blah blah. Fuck him.

?? Have you watched the video? At what point was Carragher asked his views on Suarez before initiating the topic himself?

    • https://www.theguardian.com/football/2020/feb/17/manchester-city-backers-are-not-the-sort-to-take-punishment-lying-down?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other   Manchester City backers are not the sort to take punishment lying down   There is resentment among City fans about their treatment and word is that Abu Dhabi will be fighting back against Uefa     In 2011 Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the emir of Abu Dhabi and president of the United Arab Emirates, received a letter. It came from a group of Emirati intellectuals inspired by the recent wave of pro-democracy protests sweeping through the Middle East and north Africa, and requested a range of modest reforms, including an extension of the voting franchise which at the time encompassed just 2% of the country’s population.   No marching on the streets. No popular unrest. Certainly no disorder of any kind. Just a letter. Nonetheless, with a regime petrified to the point of paranoia by the spectre of political Islamism, the reprisals would be swift and merciless.   Within weeks the arrests had begun, rounding up most of the 160 letter’s signatories, who were designated as “terrorists” plotting to overthrow the regime. Citizenships were revoked. Hefty prison sentences were dished out. In 2014, Abu Dhabi enacted Terrorism Law No 7, reclassifying peaceful opposition as a terrorist act punishable by death, and criminalising a whole range of hazily-defined acts, from “antagonising the state” or “stirring panic among a group of people” to “carrying explosive crackers for a terrorist purpose”.   Now: does this strike you as a group of people that is going to be intimidated by the fine print of Article 56, section (a) of the 2018 edition of Uefa’s Club Licensing and Financial Fair Play Regulations?   Does a regime serially defying a United Nations arms embargo in Libya – according to the UN’s own reports – strike you as the sort that places a high premium on bureaucratic process? Does the family that bought itself the world’s largest super-yacht – a $600m behemoth two-thirds the size of the Titanic and reportedly equipped with its own missile defence system – strike you as the sort to take a swingeing punishment with humility and good grace?   These are just some of the ways of understanding Manchester City’s current dispute with Uefa, one that for all its clear footballing repercussions carries far more sinister overtones. Trawl the City messageboards in the wake of Uefa’s decision to ban the club from the Champions League for two seasons, and it won’t take you long to stumble across the rhetoric of scorched earth: of traitors and revolutionaries, violence and purgation, shady cartels and subhuman scum.   This is the language of existential threat, the register of total warfare, and it is fed by the incendiary invective coming out of the club. One little snippet to emerge is the fact City’s appeals to the court of arbitration for sport have been dubbed “Cas One” and “Cas Two”, as if they were military campaigns, rather than ringbinders being delivered to a courtroom by clerks in TM Lewin suits. Witness, too, the assertion of the club’s lawyer Simon Cliff in the Der Spiegel leaks of 2018 that “Uefa doesn’t respond to anything other than aggression”, that a lawsuit against their auditor could “destroy the entire organisation within weeks”. City talk about their footballing enemies the way Abu Dhabi talks about its real ones.   This, perhaps, was the most persuasive argument against allowing cherished footballing institutions to fall under the control of entire states. It wasn’t the lack of transparency or the potential for financial distortion, grave as those are. But in hindsight it was perhaps inevitable over time clubs would come to resemble state actors in their own right, that sporting problems would impel geopolitical solutions, that the cut and thrust of footballing sabre-rattling would increasingly take on the character of the real thing.   There has always been a slight misconception about the concept popularly known as “sportswashing”, the attempt by autocratic regimes to embed their soft power through sport. It is never purely a PR exercise: there are PR firms for that, and they tend not to go to the trouble of spending £1.5bn on footballers or rebuilding large parts of east Manchester.
        Rather, it helps to think of the sportswash as some vast, pointless infrastructure project: a man-made glacier, a giant bridge to nowhere, a Nando’s visible from space. The objective is to create something so iridescently perfect that it generates its own innate shock and awe, a timeless monument to beauty, wealth and the power to do whatever the hell you want.   And so there is a rich double irony at work here. Firstly, for all the eye-watering sums lavished on the brilliant Guardiola sides, it is instead the years of faltering ascent, the 2012-16 era, for which City are being punished: not the years of £50m full-backs, but your Mangalas and Rodwells and Wilfried Bonys. Secondly, that one of the world’s most meticulously-crafted sporting projects could be undone by simple naivety: an apparent belief the rule of law could be subverted by force of will alone, a failure to build any sort of political or diplomatic contingency against it. While the Qataris at Paris Saint-Germain made it a priority to infiltrate the corridors of power, City find themselves adrift: friendless and alone, with only their money and their hubris to protect them.
        It may yet be enough. The word is City are stockpiling a cache of inflammatory evidence against other clubs, in anticipation of an epic fight. Perhaps, armed with a battery of lawyers and accountants, they will get their ban overturned. Perhaps, as some of the more bellicose voices insist, they will even destroy the apparatus of football as we know it, which definitely feels like a proportionate response to not being allowed to sign Stevan Jovetic. Either way, you sense for City the ends will always justify the means. After all football, like geopolitics, is very much a results business.
