    Papers being what they are, they will still want to stir up the shit to generate papers sales. True football fans know that football is what we all want to watch So everyone, including players, managers and Suarez and Evra, just get on with it. Football will do the talking eventually and we get to see football for what glues us to the stands and tv year in year out… YNWA.

    Amen to that. And a good job the two clubs can’t meet again this season.

    Why was the fanzine confiscated? What did they print?

  4. Dave Wallace says:

    A little peace and quiet on this subject might do us all a world of good.

    Yes until the two clubs play each other again, or until Suarez does something the papers can grab hold of.

    My point being that the reaction to the handshake (not the original incident) has been ludicrously hysterical and certain news stations need to consider whether their input has helped the need to move on from this. And I’m not saying this to defend Suarez who clearly has acted very foolishly on more than one occasion.

  6. @Maliniok The copies of Red Issue were confiscated for printing a cut out of a Klu Klux Klan mask that had LFC at the top and the words ‘Suraez is innocent’ around the bottom. It was confiscated for inciting racial hatred. Quite how this incites racial hatred is beyond me though, it surely is taking the piss out of racisim…

    I’d agree that Handshakegate has been done to death and there’s nothing left to discuss.

    However, the original incident, and especially the refusal to condemn it by Liverpool FC, still bears greater scrutiny.

    Dalglish has only apologised for his post-Man Utd interview, and not for his support of Suarez’s abhorrent behaviour.
