Liverpool v United

Watched the game and although a 1-1 draw I thought on the balance of play Liverpool probably just about deserved to win, but United did look a bit better when they decided they had to try and get a goal back.

To me looked like Fergie set his team up to play for a draw :shock:

Even after equalising after dominating for the first time in the game United then sat back again and Liverpool nearly sneaked it at the end.

Certainly didn't look like much to choose between the two teams.

Can't believe King kenny didn't throw the big £35 million super star into the fray! :|

Doesn't look too promising does it!

As a Liverpool fan I would say that if he is found guilty he should be fined and banned and made to make a public apology at the very least.

If proven innocent Evra should face a similar penalty.

 

The picture makes it look as though he wants to bite him! :shock:

I think that they should have played this match at Carrington - most of the United team would have felt more at home there. I think that the Champions League on Tuesday, which they must win, picked this team. Right about Suarez and his dives, he reminds me of Ashley Young when he was at Villa, he appeals for a foul everytime he's tackled. However, Liverpool are a one player team and without Suarez, they are toothless.

I think you are being unfair to some very good players, it is after all about the squad rather than the team.Ferguson set his stall out to contain Liverpool with one eye on the next two games. I see nothing wrong with setting a team up for a particular game. Liverpool were the better team.

I agree with your take on Suarez, but disagree with your assertion that he is a one man team, that is rubbish.

Hi Eagle, fair comment. I have no problem with any of the United players idividually (except maybe Fletcher), I just don't think that you can make a case for including them all at the same time, especially in a game of this stature. If this had have been West Brom or Wolves it may have made sense. I guess that I'm desparate to see the well-oiled machine that United can be with a regular first team. Chopping and changeing, except for injuries, disrupts that flow.

The Liverpool striker Luis Suárez has been banned for eight matches and fined £40,000 after being found guilty of misconduct, regarding "using insulting words towards" Patrice Evra of Manchester United.

Liverpool FC Statement:

 

Liverpool Football Club is very surprised and disappointed with the decision of the Football Association Commission to find Luis Suarez guilty of the charges against him.

 

We look forward to the publication of the Commission's Judgment. We will study the detailed reasons of the Commission once they become available, but reserve our right to appeal or take any other course of action we feel appropriate with regards to this situation.

 

We find it extraordinary that Luis can be found guilty on the word of Patrice Evra alone when no-one else on the field of play - including Evra's own Manchester United teammates and all the match officials - heard the alleged conversation between the two players in a crowded Kop goalmouth while a corner kick was about to be taken.

 

The Club takes extremely seriously the fight against all forms of discrimination and has a long and successful track record in work relating to anti-racist activity and social inclusion. We remain committed to this ideal and equality for all, irrespective of a person's background.

 

LFC considers racism in any form to be unacceptable - without compromise. It is our strong held belief, having gone over the facts of the case, that Luis Suarez did not commit any racist act. It is also our opinion that the accusation by this particular player was not credible - certainly no more credible than his prior unfounded accusations.

 

It is key to note that Patrice Evra himself in his written statement in this case said 'I don't think that Luis Suarez is racist'. The FA in their opening remarks accepted that Luis Suarez was not racist.

 

Luis himself is of a mixed race family background as his grandfather was black. He has been personally involved since the 2010 World Cup in a charitable project which uses sport to encourage solidarity amongst people of different backgrounds with the central theme that the colour of a person's skin does not matter; they can all play together as a team.

 

He has played with black players and mixed with their families whilst with the Uruguay national side and was Captain at Ajax Amsterdam of a team with a proud multi-cultural profile, many of whom became good friends.

 

It seems incredible to us that a player of mixed heritage should be accused and found guilty in the way he has based on the evidence presented. We do not recognise the way in which Luis Suarez has been characterised.

 

It appears to us that the FA were determined to bring charges against Luis Suarez, even before interviewing him at the beginning of November. Nothing we have heard in the course of the hearing has changed our view that Luis Suarez is innocent of the charges brought against him and we will provide Luis with whatever support he now needs to clear his name.

 

We would also like to know when the FA intend to charge Patrice Evra with making abusive remarks to an opponent after he admitted himself in his evidence to insulting Luis Suarez in Spanish in the most objectionable of terms. Luis, to his credit, actually told the FA he had not heard the insult.
