FIFA Should Throw The Book At Suarez

4:02 pm, Wednesday, June 25th, 2014 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 216 Comments

When Luis Suarez was seen to sneak up on Italian center-back Giorgio Chiellini and bite him on the shoulder yesterday, during the Italy Uruguay group D game in the World Cup- that was the third time in his career that he has bit an opponent.

Giorgio Chiellini bit marks

Giorgio Chiellini shows bite marks yesterday

On November 20th of 2010 it was clear that the then Ajax player had bitten PSV player Otman Bakkal on the shoulder, and for that offense he was initially suspended for two games by his club, and fined an undisclosed amount.

But then the suspension was increased to seven league matches and then a year last April he bit Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic on the arm in a Premier League game, and he received a 10 match ban which went into the start of this season.

Here’s that particular bite on video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GopdzPxE2gk

And then amazingly in the Italy vs Uruguay game while the ball was near the touch-line, he crept up on the Italian defender and bit him on the shoulder, and there is increasing evidence – including bite marks on the Italian’s shoulder – to suggest that’s exactly what the Uruguayan did.

Not only should he have been sent off in the game to even it up at 10 men each, but FIFA have announced they have opened an inquiry into the matter, and are studying all the available evidence.

And don’t forget this was in front of a watching world of millions and millions – and does not reflect well on the game of football – talk about bringing the game into disrepute.

Suarez should be in deep trouble, and another 10 or 15 match ban is not enough and FIFA – if they have the guts – should suspend this player immediately – and maybe not let him play again until next year.

He’s a serial biter.

The penalty needs to be heavy – because obviously the cumulative suspension of 17 games has not fixed his problem of taking a bite out of opposing players.

It’s time for FIFA to show some courage and fortitude and do the right thing – and quickly too.

Comments welcome.

    If its a big book that could hit him in the teeth, that would be awesome.

  • 2 geordie157 // Jun 25, 2014 at 4:09 PM

    A one year global ban will do the job.

  • 3 geordie157 // Jun 25, 2014 at 4:11 PM

    The lack of transfer activity worries me, we should have secured a top striker or a creative midfielder by now. Or at worst someone like Tom ince.

  • 4 G // Jun 25, 2014 at 4:12 PM

    In theory they could ban him for up to 2 years for the offence, the reality is that he will get a ban measured in months, rather than years, as FIFA will bottle it again. They really should make an example and throw the works at him. I suspect it will be a 20 game ban, and a 10 game international ban.

  • 5 Belfast // Jun 25, 2014 at 4:13 PM

    Yes ban him from international football for a long long time.

    Don’t see why his club should be punished though, for something that happened at the world cup.

  • 6 Shot Bru // Jun 25, 2014 at 4:14 PM

    I would pay good money to see Suarez bite Barton next season and the ensuing chaos…

  • 7 roblee7 // Jun 25, 2014 at 4:15 PM

    Would anyone take franky lampard? He’ll probably go to MLS or QPR but just a thought…the kind of signing we, as fans, could do with IMO and on a free ;)

  • 8 yo-yo // Jun 25, 2014 at 4:15 PM

    He had tried to take a chunk out of Chiellini last year. Fangs for the memory Chiellini !

    May be he just likes Italian food.

  • 9 gonufc (Newcastle United Sports Direct Advertising Club) // Jun 25, 2014 at 4:18 PM

    Or even better….Suarez bite Diego Costa… He’s like Barton with Roid rage!

  • 10 Rotonda heights // Jun 25, 2014 at 4:20 PM

    Many things should happen which don’t, sadly!

    Swemag

    Swansea will probably get 20M for Bony, they’ll be fine. Would much rather have their owner and chairman and they have always appointed ”footballing ” managers. That said, Gomis is way too much for anyone to pay for a 29 year old.

    Our club really is sick and rotten from top to bottom.

    1) Ashley – the very epitomy of nouveau riche. Lots of money but absolutely zero class and more importantly no ambition for the club.

    2) Wonga – today’s reports should have made us have an instant disconnect with them. That won’t happen.

    3) A charlatan, league 1 chancer as a manager who won’t leave no matter how poorly he performs and is deemed unsackable by Ashley.

    4) Best players left / leaving / wanting to leave while people like Saylor are still here.

    5) No one half decent wanting to sign for Pardew (and Ashley’s wages.)

    6) 52000 oblivious to it all.

  • 11 Rotonda heights // Jun 25, 2014 at 4:26 PM

    Belfast

    He’s done it 3 times now. It’s the club’s responsibility as much as anyone else’s.

  • 12 croftus5678 // Jun 25, 2014 at 4:26 PM

    ^^ some scandal that that doesnt involve newcastle.

  • 13 Sliema // Jun 25, 2014 at 4:29 PM

    Belfast

    I agree. It’s really not the club’s fault or indeed the fans of the club.

    A 24-game international ban and as high a fine as they can legally get away with.

  • 14 ToonFromLeeds // Jun 25, 2014 at 4:29 PM

    He should receive a lifetime ban. That’s the 3rd time he’s done it

  • 15 Sliema // Jun 25, 2014 at 4:30 PM

    Today is the day where two footballing greats of the modern era collide.

    It’s Messi v Ameobi

  • 16 toonarmydownsouth // Jun 25, 2014 at 4:33 PM

    Glad to see this time around the heavily Liverpool biased SSN pundits are actually condemning his actions
    The blokes got a screw loose

    Lots of comments about how “oh so a late slide tackle that could break a leg is okay or an elbow is ok but a bite that causes a lot less damage should be a big ban?”
    Well let’s be honest biting someone is just mental, it’s completely cold and pre meditated
    Seriously who thinks next ball in I’m going to bite that bloke!

    Ban him.
    At all levels

    Absolute scum

  • 17 toonarmydownsouth // Jun 25, 2014 at 4:36 PM

    South Coast toon from previous

    16 goals in 37 games where he played a lot as a winger, wouldn’t really say PEA is a flop tbf

  • 18 Our Toon // Jun 25, 2014 at 4:36 PM

    Something needs to be done about the criminal prices clubs pay for British footballers, Jake Livermore has signed for Hull and cost them £8m

    The fans that are saying bullet dodged on Gomis etc, do we have another striker in the team for the 1st game? just over 7 weeks remain to that game and we have NO ONE to play upfront, Cisse is injured.

    Lassoga
    Remy
    Enner Valencia
    Shola
    Gomis
    McCormack

    That is 5 strikers that have rejected us or clubs have rejected bids for, Valencia is the only one who is to pricey now!! Doesn’t fill me with confidence.

  • 19 Blackley and Brownlie // Jun 25, 2014 at 4:41 PM

    I wonder if it’s a crime in Brazil to bite someone?

  • 20 Mister Tuff // Jun 25, 2014 at 4:45 PM

    blackley – you need to get yourself off to Brazil -locate the rodent, that rat faced f***er, and arrest him for assault – citizens arrest.

  • 21 Our Toon // Jun 25, 2014 at 4:47 PM

    On the Suarez debate:

    Liverpool shouldn’t come into this at all? It’s about the player and he should be banned for a minimum of 1 year from ALL football, the fact that he plays for Liverpool is unlucky for them.

    If he isn’t banned from club football then Suarez will profit as will Liverpool, he will be a player that doesn’t have to go on international duty making him a more viable commodity.

    Hypothetically if Suarez put a player in hospital by biting someones ear off and he did it and international level are you telling me that he should only be handed an international ban? This is his 3rd strike enough is enough!!

  • 22 south coast toon // Jun 25, 2014 at 4:55 PM

    toon army down south
    i thought he hadnt played if thats the case seems like alot of our striker targets dont turn out to bad but y cant we sign one

  • 23 lesh // Jun 25, 2014 at 4:59 PM

    Surely an international ban is just that – banned for any game anywhere?

    Let’s hope so and it should be so so that Liverpool, which owns his contract, must take some responsibility for his failure to modify his behaviour. In any event, he’s still a Liverpool player when he’s on international duty.

    A full season, international ban is fitting.

    But, the scouse gits’d probably get on their ‘why always us’, always the victims, the wronged, perches – again with a new (another!) campaign –

    Justice for the Uruguay 9

    Fifa must act decisively and the Liverpool fans, disown Suarez instead of defending him.

  • 24 toonarmydownsouth // Jun 25, 2014 at 5:09 PM

    South Coast toon
    I think out of those games he’s started around 21
    Have no idea why Dortmund would want to sell tbh, only thing I can really think is maybe he wants a more central role rather than as a wide man and hasn’t perhaps impressed enough to fill Lewondowski’s boots

    Either way he’d be a simply amazing signing, the lad has it all imho, goals, ability, quick feet, ariel strength and is a proper athlete think he made the top 10 fastest footballers list last season
    All the attributes we desperately need!

  • 25 toonarmydownsouth // Jun 25, 2014 at 5:17 PM

    Lol
    Suarez’s lawyer (who happens to be a member of the Uruguay FA!) is claiming it’s a conspiracy theory against Suarez!
    How does that work exactly?
    Did Chiellini put his shoulder in Suarez’s mouth when he spotted him catching his breath?
    Same with Ivanovic and Bakkal?

    The defence there preparing is “If Georgio can show bite marks then Suarez can present his black eye, the marks should be in admissible”
    Hmmm did it occur that Suarez wouldn’t have a f**king great shiner if he didn’t sink his teeth into the lad?
    Man the f**k up you t*rt Suarez and admit you’ve f**ked up and once again let down your team

  • 26 Rotonda heights // Jun 25, 2014 at 5:20 PM

    I know Ash seemingly has no interest any more but it would be so easy to get people back onside

    1) He got rid of JFK – a good start
    2) Now get rid of Wonga
    3) Get rid of Pardew and his cronies
    4) Appoint an up and coming modern manager and coaches
    5) Give them 50M to spend

  • 27 Average_Contents // Jun 25, 2014 at 5:23 PM

    Do you know the worst bit of all this? He thinks he’s done nothing wrong and it’s a minor incident! Fcuking creature!

    Tbh though gus “monkey boy” Poyet summed it up when on ITV’s world cup coverage by saying his handball at the 2010 world cup wasn’t cheating it was just how the Uruguayans play so maybe it’s in his DNA to cheat, dive, fall as if shot when someone brushes him and bite although I believe the biting is subliminally in his consciousness to gain an advantage at all costs as proved by his rolling around as if he was the victim after he bit the player!

    A total football ban and the maximum fine alkowed is definitely in order this time the horror! Will fifa have the balls though?

    Probably not as their just as bad!

  • 28 santonthenewmaldini // Jun 25, 2014 at 5:24 PM

    The second that Wonga statement came out about them cheating people Newcastle should have instantly came out saying that we would no longer be associating ourselves with that “brand” they were quick to tell Sky Sports that we were not interested in a striker not so fast with this scandal!!!

    There is no way Pardew will turn anything around at Newcastle and for there to be any chance they would have to give him some real quality players who can change games.
    Because all your going to get from Pardew is more of the same disjointed under motivated negative containment counter attack rubbish.
    You would need to replace with similar ilk to who pulled Pardew out of the clarts previous like, Remy, Ba, Cabaye etc but that looks increasingly unlikely because no one wants to come here!

  • 72 Belfast // Jun 25, 2014 at 7:21 PM

    Wow, hopefully that will be the strike force

    For the love of God Belfast…Don’t give any to Welshie…can you imagine?

    Isn’t it a bit odd that the person who seems to go on about Swansea non-stop on a Newcastle blog is now telling people not to think / worry about Swansea? Give us half a chance and we’d be delighted not to.

    You lot were always a tin pot club until about six years ago tbh

  • 104 Ibizatoon // Jun 25, 2014 at 8:16 PM

    Welsh…You can support who you like, I would imagine it should be a case of supporting one team and having an affinity for the other, but who am I to judge?

    My point was more that it seems odd that you wont stop mentioning them and then tell everyone here to not worry about Swansea and to stick to Newcastle. Is it that you actually want to be ignored?

    Belfast…You don’t? Back to the drawing board then, in the meantime I’ll go back to my original guess…dropped several times on the head as a child.

  • 105 Belfast // Jun 25, 2014 at 8:17 PM

    Always nice to see a tin pot club reach the premiership though

  • 106 Belfast // Jun 25, 2014 at 8:20 PM

    That’s all I’m saying, I’m not having a go

    Belfast…I see no good reason why the two reasons can’t be used simultaneously. Together they start to explain your posts a little.

    Ideally we could come up with a few more reasons. Have you ever been bitten by Suarez, we could work an emotional torment angle perhaps?

    If we are looking to sign players in this transfer window, Then by Cabella taking no part in this WC gives us a lot better chance than him participating.

  • 140 Big Pappa Cissé // Jun 25, 2014 at 9:36 PM

    We should try and get Lucas Digne on loan from PSG . Debuchy on the right and him on the left would be great.

  • 143 jazzyp // Jun 25, 2014 at 9:45 PM

    If we were to be looking at loan signings next season, Then would definitely go for Kurt Zouma. Would be a cracking player to have at the back. And hopefully give Good and Streete another year to make the grade to the first team.
    I can’t quite fathom why no one has snapped Loic remy up yet. Taylor made and proven over the last two seasons in the Pl.

    Re: Suarez – I think they need to hammer him until he actually admits he did something!

    He’s still denying it! As well as trying to cheat his way out of trouble and get another player sent off for something he did!

    When he admits it then offer him lots of help (NOT FINANCIAL HOWEVER! He can pay for it!) because it’s such a bizaare reflex.

    He’s presumably now embarrassed and will eventually realise that now he’s done it a world cup he will be forever remembered and possibly defined by his biting.

    He’s such an awful sportsperson that despite the obvious talking which needs to be done I feel little sympathy.

  • 202 expatmag // Jun 26, 2014 at 2:09 AM

    Gonuf

    Nice sentiments but we know two things.

    1..FIFA punishment will be nowhere near enough. Suarez must now be considered a health risk on the field and all players confronting him in the future will be wary of his disorder which could work to hus advantage. He shoukd receive a permanent worldwide ban now.

    2..He is clearly uneducated coming from an under priveledged background and the fact he fails to understand hus wrongdoing yet again clearly displays a further risk factor.

    3..I dont see how Liverpool can continue ro support him, let alone employ him and I would be amazed if they were able to even sell him now.

    4. His reputation is now fully on the world stage. Even non football nations like Greenland are taking the mick in their national press and I would imagine the only country supporting him now is Uruguay. If they had any decency, which I doubt, they would ban him with immediate effect.

    5..He is a despicable character and after this latest episode, I would hope all the organisations that awarded him best EPL player last season request him to return all awarded trophies and his name removed from all records.

    6. He is a pariah of football, probably the sporting equivalent of Al queda or the taliban. He is a cheat, a sneak and most if all, a health risk to opposing players and should be removed from the game permanently…at all levels

  • 203 lesh // Jun 26, 2014 at 4:23 AM

    I’d imagine that Sissoko and Debuchy’s performances will have Ashley rubbing his hands and salivating at the prospect of the many millions to be made when they’re sold.

    Will he sell though? After all, he fought hard to keep Cabaye but had no choice but to concede defeat and let him go to PSG after he’d converted their offer from Euros to Sterling.

    Speaking of Wonga, here’s an unemotional article on our sponsor’s latest customer care activity.

    http://metro.co.uk/2014/06/25/newcastle-uniteds-season-has-already-gone-wonga-after-sponsor-is-fined-4775926/

  • 205 toonarmydownsouth // Jun 26, 2014 at 4:37 AM

    Why is everybody in the Uruguay camp making out the bite didn’t happen and it’s all come from the British media?

    That was the first thing they started on about!
    Sounds to me like Suarez was hoping he’d get a bigger negative reaction from the press after beating England gifting him a route out if Anfield, it didn’t happen
    Next minute he’s biting someone and blaming the media, problem is he hasn’t seemed to realise it’s the world media calling for a ban, not just the British

  • 206 gonufc (Newcastle United Sports Direct Advertising Club) // Jun 26, 2014 at 4:46 AM

    @expat – Fifa are so completely untrustworthy and opaque that anything could happen.

    I really do think that any interest Real Madrid or Barcelona supposedly had in him has gone now- those two clubs have a very strong, if completely fickle, set of principles- or at least that’s how they see themselves. Just like how Barcelona fans and staff kept saying that they could never have “someone like” Mourinho as a manager after the Vilanova eye poke.

    No sympathy or care can be given if he, and the rest of the Uruguayan team and press, keep denying anything happened. When he does admit it he needs to look at what he shamefully did straight after it as well- the grabbing his face and rolling around in faux agony. It was utterly pathetic and needs punishment in itself.

  • 207 Santon03 // Jun 26, 2014 at 5:54 AM

    That’s why suarez has big teeth, it’s ashame that Chiellini’s elbow didn’t connect that time.

  • 212 expatmag // Jun 26, 2014 at 6:28 AM

    Suarez stated in his interview that Chellini elbowed him in the eye. He has refuted claims he actally bit Chellini.

    In that, why was he shown holding his teeth immediately after the incident?

    He can try and deflect things as much as possible but the evidence against him is obvious and he is being condemned worldwide and rightly so.

    I cant see how he could possibly come back from this now. Even some Liverpool supporters on forums are admitting he has totally tarnished the club and needs to be sold.

    However, if he gets a substantial workd wide ban, noone will touch him.

    I feel sorry fir Liverpool, their supporters and most of all, their nanager.

  • 213 Santon03 // Jun 26, 2014 at 6:39 AM

    He’s just checking his precious limited edition teeth are ok lol.

    It just shows that some people are so stupid still trying to deny and getaway something that clearly captured by video evidence. Chiellini elbowed him after he was biten, it was Chiellini who was retaliating not suarez.

  • 214 Shot Bru // Jun 26, 2014 at 6:48 AM

    At the end of the day Suarez is one of the best players in the world which means he will be hot property…he scores stax of goals and is a matchwinner…If Suarez played for us I wouldn’t want him to be sold either…just like the majority of Liverpool fans and their manager will want him to stay…

    Clubs have no scruples in signing players no matter what crimes they have committed in the past…just look at Barton, King, Ranger, Mutu, Hughes, Rossi etc…

    Geez we bought Barton after he committed much worse crimes than Suarez ever has…and Barton was accepted into our club by our fans with open arms…

    Far out…modern day footballers are soft pre madonnas and need to quit their diving and rolling around antics…

    Fair comment

    However, Suarez is a repeat offender 3 times over on the field whilst most if those you mentioned had off field misdemeanours.

    Suarez shows no sign of remorse or culpability in his actions and isnt intelligent enough to realise he has actually committed an assault 3 times over, which coukd have been punished with police charges had they been done off the field.

    Yes. He is a great player but he is also a cheating sneaky dispicable character with no morals.

    FIFA have the opportunity now to set precedents on this culture in the world game by punishing him severly, if they have the courage
