Any sign of those 'justice for Suarez' t-shirts lads?

if you want to talk about a club with absolutely zero morals




Didn't agree with that at the time. Leave your whataboutery at the door.

Dalglish was misguided and the club as a whole handled that issue very poorly. Henry/Werner had to intervene themselves in the end and force them to draw a line under it and make Dalglish and Suarez apologize after the Old Trafford handshake snub. Personally, I think it was a factor in Dalglish getting the boot after the 2012 FA Cup final.

Whether or not the people within the club genuinely believed Suarez's denials, they should have just put out a statement condemning any kind of racial abuse and publicly supporting Suarez, pending the investigation, gagged the players, and had the PR men and powers that be handle it. Easier said than done, perhaps, with social media, but anything would have been better than the amateur hour that unfolded.

Think how decisively and effectively United dealt with Cantona in 1995. Fair enough, it was a more straightforward, black and white issue, captured for all to see, but Liverpool could have still controlled public statements much better.

Pity City couldn't show a bit more graciousness. May act in some small way as a extra motivator for Liverpool, but I'd expect the rivalry to get stoked up a bit next season anyway.

Motivator? You not think 30 years of not winning it is not enough motivation?

Yep I agree.  I did say though that something like this could act as an extra motivator in a small way.  If I was Klopp I'd use it anyway.

You've missed a great opportunity here to throw in your usual few other well rehearsed jibes.

Think he's already gone through his repertoire - ashamed of nothing etc. Scroll up! Actually, don't bother!

The price of kids football kits is a disgrace.

Just spoken to a Blue who has spent £800 on new kits in the past twelve months.

Heís had Everton home and away, plus Real Madrid, Man City and now Tottenham Hotspur.

Thatís before £10 on a Messi scarf!
