I knew I always liked Becky Angus for a reason.  She always makes me laugh.  She also read my mind like a book about most of those, including the build up on the third Brazilian goal.  They never replayed it to the obvious foul just over center the referee was standing right on top of.  Nice to know it's not just Toppserien referee's that swallow their whistles.
. . and in US college football she once told a referee to "grow some f*** balls" and got a yellow card :)

She just keeps getting better.  Wish they had her doing some of the broadcasted World Cup chats.

It's coming home, it's coming home, England coming home...

Oh well, Roy has down the job he has been asked to do ie prepare the future by taking a young team to the tournament so that they can learn.

Suarez? What a Grade A bellend. You can call it a rush of blood once...

Should never pull on a football shirt again. He's not all there  :o

And racist to boot.  50% more goals than anyone in the EPL.  Destroyed England in Brazil.  National hero in Uruguay.  And people want to kick Hope Solo off the U.S. team for getting in a fight with her sister and her 17yr old son.  Off the field.

Classic art and the artist philosophical conundrum.  i.e. if your child is dying do you deny them a life-saving drug because the person who invented it bit someone on the field, or got in a fight with her sister.

Football is the beautiful game.  Love it to death.  Being a canook, I also love ice hockey though, and one of the reasons is this sort of thing gets handled on the ice.  English football used to be like that.  Yeah, those were the days.

World governing body Fifa have imposed a record nine-match ban on Uruguay striker Luis Suarez for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini.

The independent disciplinary committee imposed the suspension after finding the 27-year-old guilty of misconduct.

Suarez has also been banned from all football for four months.

He should be banned for life!

And no-one can argue it is a one of lone spur of the moment rash challenge - he has done it 3 times now!

He deserves to be banned from the game for life.

And this coming from a Liverpool fan. His behaviour is an embarrasment and disgrace - his footballing talent can not excuse that.

To be honest i called for a total ban when i first heard about it and saw it, but i kind of agree with what the lads have just been saying on ITV.

Ian Wright rightly said "It doesn't seem much", and it doesn't, but he's going to miss around 20 games in total for club and country, and there's a possibility he'll never play for Uruguay in a World Cup again, depending on how their qualification goes.

More of a joke for me was the pathetic fine he got, about £62k? Chump change to him. A ban and "help" didn't work the last time so they should have tried hammering him for money, maybe giving it to grass roots football in Uruguay or something.

Lets hope he really does learn this time, but i'm not holding my breath  :-X
