Agreed James....I thought Evans was excellent today
Didn't cry. Just pointed out that James is as fair and balanced as the FA.
On Welbeck, he seems to be over thinking things. A player is looking for a goal and as a result is starting to play for the perfect goal. It feels like he over dribbles every time he touches the ball.
He seems to be working through the first real funk of his career. Not perfect yet, improvement is clear as day. He seems confident right now and physically strong.
It's also great to finally have a proper and natural rb in the starting team.
Welbeck had some sublime touches on the ball today. Yes he over dribbles from time to time, but what he is doing to other defenders is opening up space for others..
Please tell me he was messing? I need to see this.
didn't like to see Evra doing this

Interviewer (Geoff Shreeves): As you know the football won't dominate the headlines tomorrow. What is your reaction to Luis Suarez refusing to shake Patrice Evra's hand and did you have an inkling he was going to do that?
Dalglish: (pulls a face and shakes his head) I never knew he never shook his hand.
GS: Refused to shake his hand.
KD: I'll take your word for it but I don't know, I wasn't there so I never saw it. We're not there for the handshakes - that's contrary to what I was told.
GS: But now that I have told you that he did do it, Kenny, your reaction to that?
KD: We'll ask him, and then we'll take it from there.
GS: Do you think you have to take a serious look at his refusal to shake his hand, and the way it subsequently set the tone for elements of what happened here today?
KD: I think you're very severe and think you're bang out of order to blame Luis Suarez for anything that happened here today, right? I think predominantly the people - both sets of fans behaved really well. They had a bit of banter between each other. No problem. Right, how many bookings were there? End of story.
GS: Kenny, I'm not talking about the fans.
KD: (appears to want to leave and someone off camera told him to stay I'm guessing) I'll leave whenever when I want.
GS: No, no, no. I said Kenny, I wasn't talking about the fans I wasn't asking.....to stay here
KD: How many bookings were there?
GS: I'm not talking about the players ....a couple of bookings, Kenny.
KD: A Manchester United Liverpool game, that's not a bad tally
GS: Yes but Kenny, you also know there was controversey in the tunnel. The police were called, the stewards were called before and after the game because of the tension during the game and a lot of that was down to the fact that they didn't shake hands.
KD: You know something else? See, when we had the game, the FA Cup tie, right? Because there wasn't a 24 hour news channel in the build up to the game, nothing like this happened.
GS: So are you blaming the news channel?
GS: What are you saying?
KD: I'm just saying, it was a bit tight trying to get through there. I don't know what happened there because I was here, right? So if you want to know what happened in there ask someone else who was there, 'cause I wasn't. Ok?
GS: Kenny, thanks for talking to us.
KD: No problem.
Armdrag check the first 30+ seconds
Yeah, just watched it on Sky. The bolded bit where he was stumbling and stuttering around trying to divert it away from Suarez was funny.
I love that man so ********ing much.
"Luiz suarez contribution on the game so far was not shaking hands.. racist fool.. he can shake my ass next time he sees me.."
Liverpool " football club" have been shown to the world what a bunch of utter utter ********ing ********** they are, of course we have know this for years.
always the victim's, its never your fault!
Evra is the victim in this. Stop trying to make it about him.
why ? it was in front of the United fans, He has every right to do it.
What, Emmanuel Eboue?
He really said that?
No, I'm just checking now... some guy put it up on another board from twitter. But looking at that acc it doesn't look like it's real, so
some ******** on RWAK
I can top that NM, RAWK is endless fun on days like this;
I didn't follow the whole thing very closely but is there any dispute about what Suarez actually said? I thought the dispute was about intent.
Are you talking about if sane rational people disputed what was said?
Or tenuous grip on reality Liverpool fans thoughts it is disputable what Suarez said / did.
For the former none, for the latter, an impressive number.
My understanding is that Suarez used a term that may not be considered racist in his own culture. However, as any reasonable person knows, it is the person to whom the term is directed who determines if something is racist.
