I never thought I'd agree with Gough but he's right here, this needs cutting in the bud I just feel were in too deep now.
This is spiralling out of control now, when a simple apology if he's been misunderstood but no offence was meant would of ended it and got the ban reduced on appeal.
It is an unholy mess but Luis Suarez and Liverpool Football Club have nothing at all to apologise for.
You're allowing these empty vessels to panic you - a bit like the Irish caller who has apparently been shamed into renouncing his faith. Don't fall for it. I know it's very unpleasant to hear their nonsense but even now it's clear from what they're spouting - particularly Gough - that the seeds of doubt are starting to be sown due to the intensity of the solidarity behind Luis.
They - mainly Gough - are nowhere near as strident as they were just 24 hours earlier. He [Gough] is now questioning the wisdom of the FA not releasing the full details behind their decision. The more shite they spout the more they're merely digging a deeper hole for themselves. By the time the truth reveals itself to the majority [who have jumped so eagerly onto the self righteous racist bandwagon] and the veil of ignorance gradually disperses to reveal the decision as the utter sham it so manifestly is, their primary objective will be to find the best way of backtracking on the drivel they've been spouting.
Though we haven't actually heard the facts of the matter those of us who were there to see Evra's feigning injury and subsequent snarling his aggression to Suarez prior to any verbal interchange - and have had the Uruguyan colloquialism explained to us - have now been able to grasp what has happened.
In stark contrast, the Durham/Gough stance - and that of all those slandering/libelling an innocent man - uses as its pivot the fact that the panel found Suarez guilty of racist connotations within his retort to Evra ergo he actually must be guilty [some say racist] ergo he should be condemned by every Liverpudlian ergo he and the club should apologise.
As we are now aware those panel findings are based on literal English translation rather than actual meaning and on the fact Evra's ridiculous over-reaction must have represented conclusive evidence of intended racial offence by Suarez as distinct from the innocuous perhaps slightly patronising questioning it actually was. As such the entire basis for the decision by the panel lacks any justification whatsoever. Hence the strident rebuttal by LFC.
Ultimately, the charge will have to be dropped - either by court order or willingly - or at the very least significantly abated to shed any racist connotation. And at that juncture so many posturing self righteous hypocrites within the media - not least these two morons - will be revealed for what they are - namely no better than the vigilante lynch mob who lap up their drivel.
