    That's inevitably going to be made out to be worse than it actually was. Based on that clip anyway.

    not really it looked like that at the time, he knew he handballed it, was decisive for the goal. He's a ****.

    Maybe, but to me this is one of those times when it's like a batsman who edges it but doesn't walk (based on the gif posted in here, I didn't actually see the game). Whilst he undeniably controlled it with his hand, the ball was coming at him by the looks of things. This wasn't a hand of god type incident, unless I'm mistaken.

    I don't know of many footballers that would go to the ref, and admit to that being a handball.

    We've seen so many great players, who are by all accounts great guys off the pitch, do similar and/or worse things. I wouldn't label Scholes, Messi, Henry etc. ****s.

    Although, granted, Suarez is a ****. Just irrelevantly to this, really.

    nah, he moves the hand to the ball, IMHO.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    I think I've just had the most sarcastic post I've made on Exeweb, taken seriously, my head aches.

    Oh someone was whining about not giving yoof a chance. I quoted someone saying the right thing and said yeah, Scott Bennett hasn't been giving a go, despite him being an ever-present, and someone called me up on my comment.


    Exeweb tends to hurt my brain though, so my fault for posting

    That's like the best angle of the incident, and still looks bad.

    Probably more will be made out of it, then what's due but then that's because it's Suarez and he is a habitual offender.

    Yeah, I think yer man (?) there is definitely sincere. Having a pedant's zeal I recognise it in others.

    Retrospective one-game ban for Suarez imo.

    Seriously though, love a good handball goal but how the **** have all of the officials missed that?

    Yeah, it's on the assistant's side too and pretty clear. His reaction initally is a giveaway too.

    They adjudged it to be non-deliberate, so says Brendan Rodgers, who apparently spoke to the fourth official after the game.

    That's the easier excuse to take now for them. Not sure that works either because most of the Handballs are instinctive rather than planned.

    People have been given Reds for moving their arm towards the ball instinctively on the line.
