Toothsome

I didn’t see the Suarez incident last night, but I did see his accuser in the first half rolling about in apparent agony, claiming to have been elbowed, despite the TV replay showing no contact.

What’s the big deal? Suarez has lumps kicked out of him by guys much bigger than he is with very little protection. A couple of years ago he bit a Chelsea player who was holding his shirt. The guy let go, didn’t he. Whatever happened with Chielinni, my money’s on the play-acting Italian having got what was coming to him.

To put this in perspective, think back to the classic shot of Vinnie Jones grabbing a young Paul Gascoigne by the family jewels and squeezing hard. A worse offence than a quick chew on a cheating pest? Yes,  ma’am. Was Vinnie banned for a couple of months? No, but a few years down the road, Topman made good use of the photo in a window display.

And England? From the little I saw they’re one class centre-back and one instinctive goal-scorer short of being a decent team.

    Well said but he’s done it before so will be judged wrongly on his previous but I totally agree.

    Probably he will, because disciplinary procedures in football have no room for natural justice, nor will they until they are challenged successfully in the civil courts . . . and FIFA prohibits that.
