Relegate Liverpool!

I'm not sure where I stand on the Suarez affair. Initially, I thought he should be kicked out of English football if it was proven that he had used the N word repeatedly towards Evra, but the more I learn about how the Spanish version is used in Uruguay, the more I understand how the term may have been used without malice. If this is true, then the player may not deserve the hefty 8 match ban.

However, there can be no excuses for Liverpool FC. They had a responsibility to "educate" Suarez in the first place, but never mind that, the wearing of the Suarez t-shirts tonight is an absolute disgrace. I said Dalglish was on dodgy ground when he offered "100% support" before the judgement was given; to wear the shirt tonight and require the rest of the team to make a statement of solidarity is utterly and completely unacceptable.

The FA are running their "Kick Racism Out of Football" campaign and Liverpool FC, as things stand, has put itself on the side of the racists. Appeal the decision by all means, but to wear those Suarez shirts tonight says that they put their player and parochial concerns over the greater good of the game, and of society at large.

Tell me, what happens now if three white Liverpool supporting yobs kick and knife to death a black teenager over the Christmas break? Would Dalglish wear his Suarez shirt as witnesses explain how the assailants yelled "Kill the N*****!" or "That's for Suarez"?

The arrogance of Liverpool FC must not be tolerated. The FA should show how serious they are about kicking racism out of football by kicking Liverpool out of the Premiership!

Liverpool and their supporters have shown stunning levels of self absorbtion in the past so this is no surprise. From singing "who's that lying in the runway, who's that dying in the snow" at a Spirit Of Shankley event on the anniversary of Munich to this. I hate them passionately because of that, and so should every supporter of every other club in the whole damned world.

LOL Too busy a night, it will slip down the boards far too quickly. But I am serious, the wearing of the shirts tonight was disgraceful.

Can you tell me which club you SUPPORT as your wisdom is something I wish I could reach, maybe I should drop Liverpool and SUPPORT yours. Not sure where you did you get the relationship between two players shouting at one another and a murder,maybe I missed that at school, but of course we are not all so clever as you.

QPR claw back a 2 goal deficit only to blow it, at home to the mighty Sunderland. Something tells me the mighty HF's keyboard is at work as I type........

Dalglish is a moron.

The self-absorption that was previously referred to is spot on - why do they all feel the need to write YNWA after every post? Hammers don't write IFBB (I'm forever blowing bubbles) Palace don't write GAO (Glad All Over) Millwall don't write...well they can't write, but you get the picture.

To surmise, Liverpool fans please walk together rather than alone........off of a cliff.

Thanks

As I predicted, dropped down the Newsnow board too quickly. Plus it is a busy time in Liverpool - all those Christmas presents to steal!
