Liverpool will be relieved to get back playing football this weekend after a dramatic seven days at Anfield. Defeat against United was followed by media scrutiny over Luis Suarez’s failure to shake hands that subsequently saw both the player, Kenny Dalglish and the club issue official apologies within 24hrs of the game. It is thought that the sponsors Standard Chartered intervened and told the club of their concerns, but United’s acceptance of the apology appears to have finally put this matter to rest once and for all.
This week at FFC we have seen a mixed bag of blogs that include a new leaf for Luis Suarez; those in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones, while Liverpool face competition for Congolese star.
