LUIS LUIS, OH BABY, YOU GOTTA GO?
SO Suarez has been on the radio again. They must love him in the Uruguayan press. Every time he goes back he is available for a chat at all times. His commitment to journalism in his home country is outstanding. But what about his commitment to Liverpool? Not so good by the looks of things……
“Now there are two or three options and the club knows. There are no (other) offers yet but Liverpool FC know exactly what is going on and what I want. A phone call could change everything.”
How about a phone call from me going: “DON’T GO LUIS LAD, YOU’RE DEAD BOSS AND I LOVE WATCHING YOU SCORE LOADS OF GOALS!!!!’?
That probably wasn’t type of phone call he was on about. He probably means the “Real Madrid have made a bid” type. But it is possibly worth a shot. Has anyone trying ringing him? Maybe he is waiting by the phone in Uruguay for some love, and all he’s getting is radio presenters phoning him up for a chat.
Luis isn’t here yet but his agent is. Having talks with with Ian Ayre and Brendan Rodgers which were described by the Liverpool Echo as “positive” and “amicable”. Which I think means that Pere Guardiola (who it appears you legally have to say is Pep’s brother every time he is mentioned) said that Suarez wants to leave, and Ayre and Rodgers said we want him to stay, but no-one threw any pens about. Which is nice. No need for things to turn unpleasant.
It also seems that English clubs aren’t out the question now either, which contradicts the “English Press are making my life a nightmare” reason and points more to the “Liverpool aren’t very good” reason. Which many of us suspected already of course. But I understand if it was tough for him to say, given that we haven’t taken the news of former players moving to better teams very well in recent years. Many fans insist that we’d be OK with it now, if only Suarez was honest about it. But, if true, that is a radical jump from how we’ve reacted in the past, so it’s understandable if Luis didn’t get the memo.
But I do miss a few weeks ago. A simpler time when new players were signing every day and I hadn’t seen the new third kit. Henrikh Mkhitaryan teased us with YouTube clips and goal stats and then pissed off to Dortmund, and then we get the news that ‘The Wallasey Wizard’ Jay Spearing is leaving for Blackburn! Who sanctioned that? And for £1.75 million! He is worth literally pounds more than that!
Sensing my desperation Brendan has been on the official website to ensure us all that Aspas and Alberto, rather than coming as squad players, are actually dead good, and ‘Head of Performance’ Glen Driscoll has been on to tell us all that everyone looks really sharp in training. Like that will help everyone get over losing Speo. You could sign Messi and I’d be fuming about this one. We’re not even giving him a testimonial.
Goodbye sweet prince. We’ll always have, er, that decent game you once had x
