Following Liverpool’s decision not to appeal Luis Suarez’s 8 match-ban earlier today, I did a check on which games the Uraguyan forward will miss and 7 of them occur during January in which we face a hectic schedule of fixtures.
We play 5 Premier League games, the Carling Cup semi-final legs and an FA Cup game versus Oldham Athletic on Friday.
It turns out that Luis, who didn’t get a fair hearing by the FA, will be available to face Spurs at home on February 6th.
Alot of games, but at least our innocent forward will be back next month.
It remains to be seen if he will given leave to return home on compassionate leave for a few weeks to escape the media attention or not.
You were hard done by Luis but the best thing is to just take it on the chin and move on.
