So after a fantastic weekend of football, where once again one of the most historically important cup competitions had most on the edge of their seats and produced some great action and equally some excellent goals, unfortunately this is all but forgotten by the majority of sports/football journalists.
I find it all incredibly boring that these people believe that football fans would prefer to read about Patrice Evra being booed and one idiot making monkey gestures than the game of football itself. There was a time that the Monday after a cup-tie was spent arguing about who was the better team, or how the referee cheated us, contentious off-side decisions, penalties that were not and penalties that should have been. Alas instead there is no argument worth having, are Liverpool fans allowed to enjoy the victory and lord it over their greatest rival as they should, the answer to that lies within the British media, and indeed certain individual journalist that have what they believe is a far greater story to tell.
The guilt that some of these media types have heaped upon Liverpool players and staff and most of all on Liverpool supporters is in itself distasteful, if for one moment you were to cheer on your side or your heroes, just be careful that you are not doing this because you support racism and purely want to further its cause. Ask yourself this how many young Liverpool supporters, children, youths, teenagers are this very morning being accused of being a racist or supporting racism purely because they want to rib their Manchester United counterparts about the game. The truth is you have to be very careful how you celebrate victory, maybe if Manchester United had won then the media would be lording over a victory for the game.
The whole Luis Suarez saga has become some what of a witch-hunt and an unfair fight, interesting that The F.A. felt that they should protect the England captain from what may have been an embarrassing incident at Queens Park Rangers where those players incensed by John Terry’s behaviour would not want to shake his hand, Terry is also being accused of Racist behaviour and during the game was cheered on loudly by Chelsea supporters, but the press did not feel the need to suggest that Chelsea Football Club had a problem with racism or that their supporters were indeed racists for this shocking behaviour of supporting their captain and team. It will be interesting in a couple of weeks when Liverpool play Manchester Untied at Old Trafford whether the F.A. intervene in the same protective father to innocent child way when Luis Suarez is expected to shake hands with Manchester United players and Patrice Evra, my feeling is they will not and Suarez and Evra will be left out to hang because they are not the England captain.
