We saw with regret that in the Sunderland's match, Suarez was booed by the home fans. Many of us would have known that since the day English FA announced their verdict, Suarez would faced the animosities at every away stadiums in England. He is a convicted racist. A rare precedent in any court of any type in the world. While Suarez showed little concerned of such tantrum from the crowd and carried on playing with zest, as a human being one must wonder how long could he endure those bitching from the opposition fans.
What we regret most is that while we prefer to think the racist issue is solely between Suarez vs Evra and Liverpool vs Manchester United, other teams has no business to interfere in this issue. Sunderland was out or order to boo Suarez, same goes to Brighton. We don't have a beef with any of you, so stay out.
Let's discuss from Suarez point of view. He must be mystified with the hard reception he received every where in England. This is a bad environment for any player. That's why when the news of a certain French club was eyeing for his signature, no one can stop Suarez from reacting. Why must he stay in England, in a land who has been bitter towards him? The only way forward is to get out.
Now, what do we do as the loyal LFC fans? We can't certainly do what Glen Johnson have done. To discuss and argue the handshake between him and Evra is actually, in my humble opinion is not wrong at all. Glen was showing what a true team mate should be. Loyal and massive massively loyal. The bond, the camaraderie presented by Glen, should be the mirror to every LFC players in time as hard as this. Who cares about the criticism. They have the rights to critic but for us, Glen has the right to stand by his buddy. For that, we the Liverpool FC fans are standing side by side with Glen in showing his loyalty towards Suarez because Suarez certainly needs all the support he could get when England seems to be a lousy place for him at the moment.
Dear Luis Suarez (regardless of you are reading this blog or not) you must stay strong. Bear in mind, you're not alone in facing the headwinds. You're not walking alone. So don't walk away from us. All you need to do is score against Everton.
