The Good Parenting Premier League Lowlights
This week, we look at the future generation of football fans, Luis Suarez shows the skills from his acting class and Kenny Dalglish goes blind (for a few second).
Everton Fans (especially that little bottle throwing bastard)
It’s a local derby, yes but the few Everton fans behind the corners should be ashamed of themselves. It happens week in week out all over the country, I’m not sure I get why fans berate and abuse any player who takes a corner. The good old ‘wanker’ signal comes out, the two fingers and the verbals inevitably join it. A couple of Everton fans took it even further by throwing objects at Bellamy and Suarez as they took corners.
The worst appears to be a kid who threw a bottle at Bellamy, the little fucker missed so takes a look around, picks up another bottle and has another go. Out of bottles, he then decides to throw some verbal abuse. Sterling parenting with that one.
Another question that this has raised is what are the stewards meant to be doing exactly? They can surely see this, so why aren’t they grabbing him and his parents and throwing them out? If nothing happens to those throwing bottles, coins, whatever then why would they stop?
After this incident, Suarez is the victim of another idiotic fan, this time a coin is thrown rather than a bottle. The atmosphere at football matches seem to bring out the worst in some people. Hopefully Everton can take a look at footage and ban these idiots.
It wasn’t just Everton fans acting the idiot either, Blackburn fans showed themselves up to. It’s probably not a popular opinion but I find it distasteful to campaign for a football manager to lose his job in the way Blackburn have. Banners? Marches? Give me a break. You’ll say it’s the only way but how about spending the energy on supporting your team instead? Having the crowd behind you can do wonders for a team.
I think we all know by now just how far Luis Suarez will go to win and he displayed that very well against Everton. Jack Rodwell made a brilliant tackle in which he barely touched the Uruguayan cheat. Suarez goes down feigning injury in a bid to get Rodwell in trouble. Mission accomplished.
I’m unaware if this would have been a penalty had Newcastle not scored but Berra is clearly holding Steven Taylor, stopping him getting to the incoming cross. This type of foul goes unnoticed almost every time but the bottom line is that it’s cheating.
It’s incredible how managers react to decisions for their team. Managers would have you believe they just want consistency, they just want the right decisions – for everyone. When it goes against them, it’s a disgrace and it’s the only thing they want to talk about. When it goes for them, well, the likes of Dalglish are insulted that they have to talk about them. Talk about hypocritical.
It’s clearly the wrong decision and I don’t believe for one second that Dalglish doesn’t know it but he decides to play the tried and tested ‘Wenger manoeuvre’. Obviously, Kenny’s vision goes funny when a decision goes in their favour because he certainly saw those decisions that went against Liverpool in earlier weeks.
I’d have so much more respect for managers if they just owned up and said it how it was. Liverpool may have gone on to win, but they were helped hugely by a game-ruining decision from the referee.
