Why Suarez Must Get An Eight Match Ban – At Least

Liverpool striker Suarez disgraced himself and his club Liverpool yesterday,  when he participated in cannibal tendencies by trying to take a bite out of Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic.


Suarez bites Ivanovic – incredible

So something like an eight or nine game ban would seem logical,  if only that he received a seven match ban when he did the same thing to PSV’s midfielder Otman Bakkal back in November of 2010.

So surely it has to be more than seven games  – because he obviously hasn’t learned his lesson – not yet anyway.

And even though Suarez made a statement which said he had called Ivanovic and said the Chelsea defender had accepted his apology – but that turns out to be not true, and the Chelsea defender is still angry about what happened.

The Liverpool fans are not happy with Suarez one little bit, but it seems the club will resist the urge to transfer him this summer – even though he remains very high maintenance.

Liverpool Managing Director  Ayre said the club have given him a £250K fine, which is only 1/8 of the fine Mike Tyson got ($3M – around £2M)) when he bit Evander Holyfield in the boxing ring back in 1997 – and also lost his boxing license.

So that fine is simply chicken-feed but the FA will also likely issue a fine as well as a ban.

This is what Ayre said yesterday:

“We’ve spoken to him, and we’ll work with Luis – Brendan particularly – on this side of his character in his game. This is more about getting him back on the right track and it’s largely down to Brendan now to work with him on that side of his character,”

“Luis has shown a lot of contrition, he feels he let a lot of people down. We’ll wait and see if there’s any further action from the football authorities.”

Luis Suarez should get a massive fine from the FA and at least an eight match ban, let’s not pussyfoot around here.

He’s earned it well – by his despicable behavior, which brings the game of football into disrepute.

    he should get more than 8, 14 for me, he has done this before and got 7, double it, simple, also the amount of controversy that he has created has merited a double figure ban

    Good grief Ed, you’re really miffed over that disgraceful episode. As said, Suarez has previous including racism and feigning injury etc and I’d like to think that the FA will consider that in its deliberations.

    And Suarez has been nominted as PFA Player of the Year? That just beggars belief!

    Surely even pardew can inspire this team to beat an average liverpool team without their only world class player (Gerrard not what he was). Then again…

    Can see the FA taking their time over this one. They’ll probably wait ’till after he plays against us.

    He will probably get a 10 match ban or so. Which means apart from Sturridge and Carroll they have no other strikers. so they will hang onto Carroll.

    The guy is a thug. He has been and always will be. Theres no place for this in the english game. People like Suarez are ruining the little integrity the english game has left.

    Although with the ball at his feet he is a magician, and it pains me to say it, this man is nothing more than a cheat with no respect for the game that he milks for an exuberant lifestyle. Ask Ghana, ask Chelsea if they miss out on the champions league by a point his year, should he be allowed to make his living this way? By cheating? And the FA? What will they do? Conveniently, sweet FA. Whilst not trying to accuse the FA of bias, it’s unlikely a coincidence that we always get the harshest punishments (and I kind of remember the FA having our pants down when Michael Owen was injured – big time rape!! If he hasn’t played for MONTHS it’s a bit disrespectful to then put him in an international squad, only to get re-injured, and refuse to pay any compensation). Simply, Liverpool have, and likely will always get away with murder in the eyes of the FA.

    When I witnessed Suarez’s antics, this came immediately to mind – http://youtu.be/U8BWBn26bX0 – THAT BOY NEEDS THERAPY.

    Seriously though; most people, when provoked, will punch the other guy. Biting is a bizarrely infantile reaction, which surely points straight towards some sort of deep-rooted issue that needs to be addressed.

    I doubt he’ll get that much of a ban. There’s no way the FA will impose anything worse than they did for the whole racial debacle; I imagine he’ll get suspended through to the end of the season and that’ll be that.

    He should be banned for life. Every week he misbehaves, in Holland he did the same with Bakkal. He is a fantastic player, but his attitude is a disgrace. Footballers are so important for children and they look up at them, they should be an example for kids. Thank God my little boy (4 years) does only know Newcastle and KV Mechelen (my team in my home country Belgium) 😉 players. And yes he is also a NUFC fan, his favourite players are Cissé and Krul…

    To be honest, calling for a lifetime ban is rather harsh. Suarez may be an odious oik with unresolved childhood issues but he doesn’t even register on the scale compared to some ‘professionals’ in the game. Lee Hughes and Marlon King come immediately to mind; those are the sorts of players who should be banned for life.

    That said, Suarez shouldn’t be allowed to play – or collect wages – until he has attended some sort of rehabilitation program with a degree of success. It’ll probably mean nothing in the long-term, but at least it puts out a message that there are retributions for actions on the field.

    He was well aware of what he had done he turned to walk away then feigned injury by suddenly developing a limp & I am sure his apology was only made after he was ordered to.Wonder if his mates will wear shirts supporting him this time.if he does play at SJP I wonder what reception the boys will give him,
