Suarez Bites But Can Liverpool Fight? Legal Analysis of LFC’s Options

Suarez Bites But Can Liverpool Fight? Legal Analysis of LFC’s Options

Introduction Let’s make one thing clear - I am not defending Luis Suarez. He inexplicably decided to sink his teeth into an opponent for the third time and deserves to be banned. However, we must ask ourselves is the severity of the ban warranted and why is it that Liverpool Football Club is the party that suffers the most? In this article I will analyse the Disciplinary Committee’s decision and explore possible remedies available to Liverpool. What is his punishment? Suarez …

Now's Not the Time to Worry About Suarez

Now's Not the Time to Worry About Suarez

Luis Suarez. Husband. Father. Football genius. It was always going to be one of those windows. There was always going to be speculation. When you have a player a good as Luis, gossip never sleeps. The reality is, nobody, barring a close inner circle truly knows the details. But in transfer windows, reality, quite literally, goes out of the window (excuse the pun). All rumour, conjecture, supposed knowledge; it all has to be taken with a pinch of salt. The …
Clause? What Clause? The Luis Suarez Story

Clause? What Clause? The Luis Suarez Story

In this article I will analyse the complicated world of football contracts, in particular focusing on release clauses, buy-out clauses and the difference between the two. Less than a year ago Liverpool fans were subjected to one the most farcical transfer sagas in recent years. Like football’s equivalent of the Stark’s, Marca issued their monotonous warning again and again.  “Madrid, is coming” and Suarez will be leaving soon. Instead we received news of a bid from notorious penny-pincher Arsenezer Scrooge …
Liverpool Perspective: England vs Uruguay

Liverpool Perspective: England vs Uruguay

England will be looking to bounce back against Uruguay after ‘The Three Lions’ slumped to a 2-1 defeat to Italy on Saturday night. England’s second group game will commence at 8PM inside the Arena Corinthians, São Paulo. The last time these two sides met was at Anfield in 2006 whilst the new Wembley Stadium was being constructed - England won that friendly 2-1 but the overall record isn’t great with Uruguay beating England on four occasions, compared to just three …

"Soz Abar Us..." | A Liverpool Supporters View

One day, a loving father told his son a story. A story about the Redmen and their mighty exploits, one that captured the imagination like tales from Herodotus and Thucydides and captured the imagination like the sight of a brutal Roman army. I wasn’t born in Crosby or Huyton. I was born in Edinburgh in a different country. But such was the tale told by my father I felt a connection that I hadn’t felt with any other side, even …
Liverpool Perspective: England Vs Italy Preview

Liverpool Perspective: England Vs Italy Preview

The time is nearly upon us. At 11pm on Saturday night Steven Gerrard will lead Roy Hodgson’s England side out of the tunnel at the Arena Amazonia for their opening Group D game against Italy. The last time these two sides met in an international tournament the game ended 0-0 with Italy winning on penalties. It will all be different this time though right? I mean there could be as many as 6 Liverpool players starting, however ,with Roy in …
Transfers, Transfers, Everywhere!

Transfers, Transfers, Everywhere!

Or so everybody with a Twitter account will have you believe. The difficulty, as we know, is getting the right deals done. It's fair to say, however, that Liverpool have moved relatively quickly in the transfer market and have secured two very different types of players.  One in Emre Can who fits the profile of FSG and Brendan Rodgers. The other is Rickie Lambert, who quite frankly does not. I say that because ever since Fenway Sports Group bought Liverpool …
Simon Mignolet - Is he still good enough? A comparison to rivals

Simon Mignolet - Is he still good enough? A comparison to rivals

Earlier in the season, following Liverpool's 2-1 defeat at Manchester City, I wrote an article looking at Simon Mignolet's first season up to that point as the Reds' first choice goalkeeper following his summer move from Sunderland. At the time he had just made himself public enemy number one to a group of fans (oh how there have been many in that position this season), and questions were being asked. Since that article was published, have his performances improved? Have …
