That explains why rather than turning their backs, the Reds intend to put a collective arm around him and help him try to combat his demons.

Tough week as a Liverpool supporter.

An awful and stupid action by Suarez has created a lot of additional criticism to an otherwise terrific player. The criticism is a little over the top:

Of course there’s been the inevitable shitstorm as a result of it, with every Tom, Dick and Jason having their say (that balloonhead Roberts wasn’t a minute before putting the boot in was he?), and whilst Luis is clearly in the wrong and should be suitably punished for it, a lot of the things I’ve been reading and hearing are just hysterical, reactionary nonsense, and not just from ‘outsiders’ either.

At the end of it, I’m guessing (and hoping!) the Suarez incident only strengthens Liverpool’s supporters.

The kid has demons. Instead of throwing him out, let’s help him out.
