Liverpool's Carragher Offers Pathetic Defence of Suarez

Is a bite worse than a career ending tackle, Jamie Carragher asks as he attempts to defend Liverpool's decision to stand by their animal, Luis Suarez.

Well, in one sense no, of course. But funnily enough Jamie, tackling is part of the game and whilst some tackles are legal and some are not, footballers go out on to a pitch prepared to tackle and expecting to be tackled. But except in kick around games at kindergarten, footballers really do not anticipate being bitten.

Apparently Suarez is very sorry. Not surprising given he has been ordered to sit on the naughty step and hasn't been allowed any sweets for three days now. We might be ready to accept his remorse if this was the first time, but it isn't.

Let's hope the punishment today is so severe that either Liverpool conclude it is not worth retaining Suarez or the Uruguayan has a tantrum and insists the nasty Brits are bullying him and so he wants to move to Spain.

  1. How truly shocking that, at the end of reading this post, i check the username to find a reference to a RIVAL football team. Your completely unbiased viewpoint is rounded off perfectly with the subtext underlying your last paragraph - "i think he should go and play for another team, in a different league". Not entirely sure what that has to do with the heinous and inexcusable act of one player biting another, but like i said, the username explains it perfectly.

    1. he's a tosser mate ,, just trolls the internet looking for attention ,, what he really needs is a job because he has far too much spare time ,,,
      with regards to suarez ,, to be honest im not a Liverpool fan but from the outside looking in its all a storm in a tea cup , suarez is a typical kid in a mans body ,, he hates to lose and like most kids show their frustration by bitting ,, i have a five yr old who does the same , just ban him for a few games and when he comes back make him wear a gum shield ,, failing that the next time he bites anyone get rodgers to bite him ,, it worked with my kids

    2. No, I have to agree with Hammersfan - Suarez HAS outlstayed his welcome in the EPL and it IS tiome for him to go. How many chances does he need?? He is a cheat, an impossibly poor sportsman and a liar to boot - all these things have been proven. There is NO room in the game for the likes of Luis Suarez and Carra's rebuttal whilst understandable is plain stupid. Adios Muchacho.

  2. This coming from a fan of a club that has signed Ravel Morrison from Man Utd. I guess running around intimidating witnesses with a knife is no worse than biting somebody.

  3. What an idiot of an author.Human force, whether by way of a tackle can kill. the Keane tackle on that City player was a pre meditated attempt to injure a player and rob him of his livelyhood and essentially his career..

    A bite any day!

  7. Go get a life, so you're saying you would rather have him take his frustration out in a rash challenge and possibly end someone's career. I do not agree with what he has done but a rash tackle is worse and of the two a bit (one that has not even left a mark) is better but neither is good.

  9. @ Anon (08:32): West Ham only dream of being Liverpool's rivals. They have no plan, no direction. Let their fans have their anti-football agendas, because whilst they're time-wasting and playing unattractive football whilst arguing to get rid of one of the top players currently playing in the EPL, we'll be continuing our progress towards our eventual goal and leaving them lightyears behind us.

  10. Macmanaman, Westwood and Aguero all guilty of worse offences than Suarez in last 3 or 4 weeks. Suarez will be banned and rightly so, but so should all the others. This blog smacks of "its a mans game nonsense".

    I suggest Hammers fan actually has his leg broken playing a game and then comes back and says that it's fine, better than someone biting me even if I can't actually walk for 6 months. Muppet.

  12. Clearly you didn't read the article. Carragher was talking about brutal over the ball tackling - outlawed and not part of the game which result in injuries which can be career ending. At no time did he condone what Suarez did just the usual overblow Brit reaction to it. As a hammers fan I suggest you look at Andy Carrolls challenge on De Gea recently for guidance.

  13. What a wonderfully unbiased artical, not! Take a reality check. From the statement made by JC he was making a factual comment, unlike your own. Although not refering too it, a certain Roy Keane tackle on Alfie comes to mind from his comments. While what Saurez done can not be condoned in anyway, it's out come does not end a fellow professional's career!

  14. He should be banned for the same amount of time Jermain Defoe was suspended for... And condoning a tackle which illegally harms an individual simply because it's expected is ludicrous. Your ignorance is as obvious in your argument as is your hate. Rename the article: "The Troll's Gone Crazy"

  15. When Jermaine Defoe did the same thing there was not all this who-har, and yet this has been turned into a veritable witch hunt for a player who was (No Chance Now.) in line for the PFA player of the year. So why is this when players of any notable world class natural ability do something wrong the media jump on them to prove to the world that they are not the mercurial artist they have been painted as, and who was it that painted them in this light ...the media themselves. The statement Carragher made was that idiot players who curtain and sometimes end player’s carriers with reckless challenges are dealt with less severely than a petulant attack which is what this is. As for playing for another team where, were the calls for Defoe to go elsewhere, this is just a bias statement. Yes the player did wrong, yes he deserves a bad as he is a role model and his punishment should serve as a warning to children and potential players that this kind of behaviour on a football pitch is not tolerable. There are four matches left of the season (A season that is already over for Liverpool.) so four match bad would not serve as a true punishment, the punishment should carry on to next season however anything over seven matches would be excessive for this wrongdoing however the FA may wish to make a mountain out of this and a martyr out of this talented player.
