Suarez Banned For Ten Games – Misses Newcastle Game


Luis Suarez has been banned for 10 games by the FA this afternoon – for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic on Sunday afternoon, in front of a worldwide TV audience.

Suarez bites Ivanovic

Luis Suarez – yummy yummy

That seems to us a reasonable sentence for a guy who bit a PSV player in  2010 while he was at Ajax, and he got a seven match ban for that, so a stiffer penalty this time seems in order.

And of course it means he misses the game against Newcastle United on Saturday – which is good news for us because he is a great player – and he will also miss the first six games of next season.

This is what the FA Statement said:

“Luis Suarez has been suspended for a total of ten matches after an Independent Regulatory Commission today ruled on a charge of violent conduct.”

“A three-person Independent Regulatory Commission today upheld The FA’s claim that a suspension of three matches was clearly insufficient, and the player will serve a further seven first-team matches in addition to the standard three. The suspension begins with immediate effect.” (good)

“This follows an incident with Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic in Sunday’s fixture at Anfield.” “The Liverpool forward had accepted a charge of violent conduct but had denied The FA’s claim that the standard three-match sanction was insufficient for the offence.”

“The incident was not seen by the match officials and has therefore been retrospectively reviewed – click here for a video explanation of ‘not seen incidents’.”

“Suarez has until midday on Friday 26 April to appeal the additional suspension, above the standard three matches.”

The Liverpool Managing Director Ian Ayre said the club were shocked at the severity of the ban:

“Both the club and player are shocked and disappointed at the severity of today’s Independent Regulatory Commission decision,” “We await the written reasons tomorrow before making any further comment.”

The sentence seems to us to be appropriate, and why would Liverpool appeal the ban, if Suarez has already done this stuff before and received a seven match ban for it in November, 2010 – he obviously didn’t learn his lesson.

What do you think?

    I love how Liverpool can be shocked at a 10 game ban he should’ve actually have been arrested for GBH.

    I don’t understand how he wasn’t taken into custody?!

    Match of the Day host Gary Lineker said on Twitter: “Very strong punishment. Vital now that FA are consistently strong on all issues eg racism, abusing refs etc. Also this ridiculous, if the ref saw it they can’t punish retrospectively nonsense, has to be addressed!”

    Not often I agree with Gaz

    Take your Ritalin and breathe… 😛

    10 games is fair enough, I think it’s insane how in the 2 1/2 years he has been at Liverpool he’ll have been suspended for 19 games! Fantastic player but a total liability and one that I will not be sad to see leave the PL.

    ——————————————————————————-

    If they are shocked then they are the only one’s in world football, Liverpool are supporting this vile piece of scum and destroying their global reputation in doing so

    Guys, you’re being a bit unfair. I mean, he did say he was sorry and who would we be to doubt him?

    I mean just look at his lil face! Actually, having looked at his face, double the ban.

    Jose Enrique said we wouldn’t consistently challenge with the current transfer policy.

    This season he has been proven right, last season he wasn’t but won a medal.

    I don’t know how ours and his situation is different?!

    I don’t condone it but most geniuses are flawed.

    Not just in footballing terms but in all walks of life.

    Take me for example, there is no doubting my genius but I can’t even write a sentence without insulting someone!

    Isn’t that right yo yo you Pardew lover.

    I say that given this is the 2nd time he has bitten a player during a match, that when he next plays he does so wearing a muzzle.

    @14, when you receive a dog bite, you get a tetanus jab. When you receive a human bite, you require up to 7 jabs, depending on the severity of the bite. A human mouth is generally less hygenic than a human anus (Even a mackem one!)

    just seen the supposed kit for next season, it looks nice. many people seem opposed to having wonga on the front but visually it looks good

    is it just me who has no objections to wonga? its a legitimate company, all interest is laid out at the start, if you cant pay it back, dont borrow the money…

    Beattie…Blog Piranha, I can live with that 🙂

    To answer your initial question, not angry, especially not today. Just ticking along as usual, nipping away as I go. Snap snap, splish splosh (or whatever noise a Piranha may make).

    For me I wouldn’t care if we were sponsored by tampax as long as we were getting big somes of money.

    Something smells funny with the wonga deal. It’s not the kind of money we should be getting by a shirt sponsor and that to me is why it’s hard to accept and seems a bit odd.

    Regardless of how you feel about the Pay Day lenders, you have to admit to a certain sense of irony, when you see a football shirt, belonging to a team owned by a billionaire, with a logo on the front that reads wonga.

    If every Newcastle fan took out a loan from wonga we’d have enough to but out Ashley and turn the club into a fan owned team like Barca.

    Them we’d win the League and pay back the loan without having to sell our tv.

    I don’t particularly like Suarez, in fact i positively dislike him. However, the length of this ban is ridiculous. 10 games for biting?

    Biting is crazy, weird, and pretty disgusting. It is not however serious assault, racism, or career threatening.

    How he can get a 10 game ban for this, and Terry get’s a 4 match ban, seems ridiculous! Not to mention the fact that McManaman got nothing.

    This is a media witch hunt, and as much as I dislike Suarex for being a racist and a cheat. I don’t want to see the day where the media run the F.A disciplinary procedure.

    @Beattie,

    That statment was basically “they are spending horrendous money on players transfer fees and wages (like my own), so I want out.”
