Stewart Downing, ladies and gentlemen.
Yeah, he's shite. Fails to do his job and doesn't even have the common decency to score the odd goal. I read recently his shots on target percentage is garbage. I hope he has a long career for Liverpool.
Speaking of Liverpool, they're really going absolutely the wrong way of dealing with the Luis Suarez case.
I don't think they are.
Suarez doesn't have a case, so their statement as to why they're not appealing is perfect, as it "justifies" them for not making an appeal, yet not admitting that it's because the evidence is against them/they can't prove anything and allows them to object against the ban whilst agreeing with the policy against racism. Don't think they've got much more of a choice really.
You misunderstood me. I meant as in, they're going the wrong way by not apologizing over the incident, originally defending Suarez, and creating fuel for conspiracy theories.
Fuck Suarez. Maybe negro isn't disrespectful where he's from but it is in England and it is to Evra. He could have at least said he didn't realise it'd be disrespectful but he apologises nonetheless for causing offence. But no. Piece of shit.
Well, to be fair, "negro" just means black in Spanish.
Yeah but if I called a black gentleman a black cunt I'm sure he would have a word or two about my contextual use of the word black.
If I'm Suarez, and I think I'm right, which he clearly does, apologizing to the guy who's had me banned for 8 games and has the whole world hating me would be the last thing on my mind.
With regards to my own opinion? Get on with it.
Tim FUCKING Howard
Landon Donovan plays first game
Tim Howard scores
oh I know that but come on. Calling someone black several times during a heated confrontation isn't good.
I'm a Newcastle fan for the night. High fiving Dat Kiwi.
can't wait for Match of the Day. Always nice to see the Manc scum get smashed.
Chant of the night:
Colleen is a slapper, she wears a wonder bra... And when she's shaggin' Rooney she thinks of Demba Ba
United are gonna apologise for the awful performance by offering all home fans free travel from London to the next game.
Wayne Rooney was absolute dogshit today.
Demba Ba is mustard. Only Van Rapist has a better strike rate.
Yeah, Ba is really, really good. Like a much better version of Adebayor. Shame he is leaving for the African Cup of Negros
Deal of the century, selling Carroll for 35 million and bringing in Ba for free?
Him, Cabaye and Tiote have been utterly inspired signings. Davide Santon is impressing me, too.
Unfortunately with Newcastle, there's always the danger that they'll all be sold.
It's certainly been a long time since Newcastle have had a striker of his all-round quality. He just knows where the back of the net is and always looks likely to find it. Going to really miss him while he's at the ACN
the thing is Newcastle will want top dollar now and who will pay it with his "ticking time bomb" knee? He's a beast...his record has been good at every club basically. Just hope his knee doesn't go pop
I want my money back
Yakubu + Ba = £1.5 Million = 27 Premier League goals
Torres + Carroll = £85 Million = 4 Premier League goals
Seriously, how shite are United? SAF should be given another knighthood for having them in 2nd place.
by the way I was looking for you in that pic Elnimio
They're completely lacking any sort of creativity or drive in the middle. Says a lot that their best player tonight is 38 years old.
You boys couldn't have picked a better time to dig out of that form slump.
Cabaye and Ba's goals were fucking lovely. Very unfortunate for Jones.
Holy shit Tim Howard.
Strawberry syrup. Fucking brilliant. This man is a legend already.
The question is do I love him more than Super Mario ? I think I might.
When you call somebody Negro it is not like "black", but nigger
Learn your Spanish Elmo
...Are you kidding me right now?
Maybe in Spain, but not in any Latin American country.
" El Negro" "Negrito", etc. are nicknames used all the fucking time to describe anyone who is dark, They don't even have to be African descendants.
And? Suarez said something like fuck you negro or whatever negro, and that means fuck you nigger. There would not be any racism in spanish if everytime one says negro they're just referrering to the colour black, we do not have two words like in english so everything is in the context
I mean if you don't see the difference between these two:
"Tengo un amigo negro que se llama ______"
"Si no quieres que te dé una paliza, quítate de mi camino, negro"
Then I don't know what to tell you. It's the same word with different context, one meaning the colour black and the other one meaning nigger. Suarez surely used the second one so I don't see what's the problem. They're VERY careful with this shit in the PL, you get a lot of this shit in La Liga and nobody cares, remember Busquets calling Marcelo: MONO, ERES UN MONO.
I know that, but Suarez' argument is that he didn't say "negro" in a derogatory way. The problem is that the Brits are obsessing on the actual use of the word "negro" because of its connotations, without bothering to look into the context.
Negro de mierda is not racist. And this is football. The only place I've ever felt I can be blatantly racist is in the Stadium (or in a friend's house where the maid is black) though I feel really uncomfortable screaming ¡¡¡MALDITO NEGRO HIJUEPUTA!!! Having said that, Suárez is not guilty imho.
pretty much the whole debate revolved around the context
