Suarez is a disgrace. How much more of this Cheating so and so must we endure before the FA ban him for good. Only one person worse than him today and that was Andre Mariner, a completely biased performance. All of it gives you a bad taste in your mouth........bloody shocking.

No doubting it was handball but I'd like to think it was merely an instinctive reaction – Suarez’s reaction certainly seemed to show he expected it to be disallowed based on the way he frustratingly smashed the ball home and then looked round at the referee. Although clearly a Liverpool fan I think the officials need to take the majority of the blame on this occasion. According to Brendan Rodgers they actually saw it by deemed it wasn't deliberate.

A fair comment The Bagman. I agree the officials should take most of the blame, although what I objected to most was Suarez kissing his hand in front of the Mansfield supporters, very uncalled for. As a Swansea fan I know Brendan Rodgers well and he defends his players to the hilt. He says he asked the Linesman if he saw a handball and the Linesman said yes but thought it was not deliberate. Andre Mariner apparently saw nothing. I have looked at the incident several times and it was a clear movement to control the ball by Suarez. No question it was deliberate. How Alan Hansen in his column today can say it clearly wasn't deliberate is beyond me, but then he obviously has a bias towards Liverpool, pity Suarez didn't take a leaf out of Robbie Fowler's book in trying to get a penalty reversed all those years back. But maybe those days have gone sadly.

Sadly I think you're right regarding honesty in the game - although Klose honourably did something similar after using his hand to score for Lazio recently. There's just too much riding on games to turn down luck when it is afforded to you. The amount of players and managers who have come out and said they wouldn't have admitted it or they would have reprimanded their own player if he'd tried to get it chalked off, speaks volumes for me. It's mainly rival fans blowing it out of proportion and seeing it as another stick to beat Suarez with. Reaction has been way over the top.

As it always is regarding clubs with a grand stature in world football, every little action is scrutinised whilst others who do the same get away with it without a media tirade. In defence of Suarez he always kisses his arm or ring don't think he was looking to antagonise or rub it in. Just thought I'd see if there was any early pre-match build up seeing as Sturridge seems to be getting in on it early with all the tedious big club talk. No doubt vitalliverpool will show more humility as credit where its due the pre-match build up/write up/preview or whatever you want to call it tends be well-informed, in depth and a surprisingly impartial read (though always hopeful as expected on the predicted scoreline :P).
