An incident at the end of the F.A.Cup tie between Liverpool and Manchester United has led to a possibility of further censure to Luis Suarez. A complaint that the Uruguayan’s celebrations at Dirk’s Kuyt’s goal, is being taken very seriously, as it may have been seen as provocation to the sensitive, current nature of their fans state of mind and invoked the rules regarding players celebrating with the crowd. Sir Alex Ferguson was distraught at the final whistle in a match that he cannot believe his team lost bearing in mind the chances his team created.
Especially considering the nature of the lucky goals, one of which should have been disallowed because their fragile goalkeeper was not allowed to catch the corner, while the second was “definitely” offside. The charge against Suarez was considered much more critical though as United now look forward to the fact that he can play against them soon and the fear of further damage in their quest for silverware.
Liverpool Football Club have made no comment currently, but this followed a further complaint allegedly by Patrice Evra that United had scored ten goals during the match. Sir Alex Ferguson immediately urged the player to complain officially to the referee. Mr Halsey was accordingly horrified by the allegation but admitted he had not seen them go in, to which Monsieur Evra responded that, o.k then, perhaps six or seven goals was more of an accurate assessment but anyway, they still definitely won the game.
Mr Halsey then asked any of his team mates if they could recall scoring them but although Wayne Rooney claimed four, his statement was a considered inadmissible, not because he didn’t play, but solely because was he was a blue nose before he grew his hair.
Mr Halsey subsequently interviewed Pepe Reina at length who definitely admitted picking the ball out of the net once but could not remember any of the other five or six though the Spaniard appeared nervous and spoke in broken English. Unlike the Liverpool player then, Evra was considered a reliable witness and was probably telling the truth so therefore Liverpool will be thrown out of the F.A.Cup and Reina and Suarez will be banned for the rest of the season.
No further comment was made other than an admission that, yet again, Fergie owes them one.
Happy days to be a red?
