Why couldn't he just apologise and show some remorse or contrition? Jesus Christ, one would hope he learns a valuable lesson from all this, but history suggests otherwise.

This is good news. It draws a line under the incident and ensures there is no longer any reason for the internet to be clogged with "did he or didn't he?" or "is he or isn't he?" arguments. We already know that he will go to Barcelona in a week or two and so even the Liverpool and United fans will be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy the World Cup Final. Ah, the joys of not worrying about Suarez for a week or two.

I would suggest that apologising for biting someone would be the 'least' a person can do, not the best. In my august opinion the 'best' thing a person can do is not bite someone in the first place, that, or donate to an orphanage.

Cue 500 Liverpool fans telling us how a bite is harmless and sliding tackles are the real danger in the game and another 100 explaining to us how this is a conspiracy against Pool.

Off course all those same fans will call him names once he leaves for Barca.

My favourite part is his promise never to bite anyone again. I love that he (or anyone for that matter) has felt compelled to assure people of that. I'm hoping (now that he looks to be going to Barca) Liverpool fans can start seeing the humour in the absurdity of the whole situation.

I really hope he isn't getting paid during the ban.

Alexis Sanchez has joined Arsenal. He didn't want to go to Liverpool. Bright Guy.

If suarez had first apologised to everyone after the game and before the first hearing and the Uruguay FA to have said that the player did wrong instead of accusing every Tom, Dick and Harry of having a vendetta against him and the country then maybe he won't have much to moan about. Personally I think he got off lightly. Do FIFA trump UEFA? Playing devils advocate what if UEFA said Suarez could play in the Chapions League or the Europa, could FIFA stop it?

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
