'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Was Ferguson Right?

As it turned out, our plea for football to steal the show at Old Trafford yesterday, didn`t quite materialise.

Once again, the media world were given ammunition by the ongoing spat between Luiz Suarez and Patrice Evra.

From the moment the teams line dup to shake hands you just got this foreboding feeling that it wasn`t going to go off smoothly.

As Suarez approached Evra, Evra offered his hand but Suarez skipped past to shake the hand of the next-in-line De Gea.

After the hard-earned victory, it was an incensed Sir Alex Ferguson that faced the media, remarking,

"Suarez is a disgrace to Liverpool Football Club."

"That player should not be allowed to play for Liverpool again. The history that club has got and he does that today."

"It could have caused a riot. I was really disappointed in that guy. For a club with their history, I`d get rid of him, I really would."

"Liverpool have a player banned for eight matches and they`ve tried to blame Patrice Evra. It`s him (Suarez) they should be bloody blaming. He could have cost them a European place."

"I had a chat with Patrice this morning and he said 'I`m going to shake his hand. I have nothing to be ashamed of. I`m going to keep my dignity.` I couldn`t believe it when Suarez refused to shake his hand."


Now I`ve nothing but admiration for the gaffer but his outburst troubles me on several counts.

1 - Was Rio right to subsequently refuse to shake Suarez`s hand? Do two wrongs make a right!

2 - Down at Stamford Bridge last weekend, didn`t Rio intimate he`d not shake John Terry`s hand, but, and this is the crux of the matter, although we may detest Terry, he is at the moment an innocent man!

3 - Surely such a dramatic outburst should only come from a club with a whiter than snow past, or have we forget about the indiscretions of Giggs, Rooney and Rio?

Sorry Alex, you`d have been better served keeping a golden silence and giving Suarez the cold shoulder, after all he`s not worth it is he?

Always a danger in being interviewed straight after a powder keg of a game......Hope it all blows over and football can take centre stage once again....The good thing is the two teams will not have to play against each other again this season....On a final note, i agree with Darren Fletcher, save the handshakes till after the game.

I agree quietman, interviews should be delayed for at least 30 minutes to allow things to cool down. One thing that people have forgotten is that the FA have ordained that players shall line up and shake hands. Why then wasn't Suarez at least cautioned by the referee for not obeying the rules?. Surely if this directive from the FA is mandatory then he should face repurcussions. If the rule is optional for the players then what is the point of everyone lining up? If it is optional then leave the handshakes till the end as indeed Darren Fletcher suggested.
