    To be fair the Scouse Internet Army would be all over that shit. If there's ever an Evra article in the Daily Mail the top comments are always misspelled odes to the toothy racist.

    Anyway, Sid's wrong isn't he? Negrito is the one that's used as mate, not negro. Not that it particularly matter's when the words that preceded it are "I kicked you because you are a" and "I don't speak to".

    I wouldn't be surprised if Sid Lowe's well aware of his 'error', mate. Obviously, no-one from Liverpool FC/FSG has realised that Suarez's public image is beyond repair, despite puff pieces like this latest one.

    The Independent has an 'exclusive' interview too:

    This is all so bloody transparent from Liverpool.

    I doubt if he deliberately did it, the human mind is incredible for selecting pieces of 'evidence' that suits what it wants to believe. If I recall correctly, Sid liked Suarez from a long time back.

    Whilst we're on Liverpool's approach, I still can't believe United didn't feck Liverpool out of it for effectively accusing Evra of lying/blatantly leaking ridiculously selective and misleading parts of the report to try to soften the blow

    The more they talk about it, the more it will hurt their club. It already damaged their Kenny legend.

    Just let them talk more, so they won't be focused on real football terms.

    Eboue.

    There's nowhere else you can go with this. The rest of the world knows how things are. The rest of the world also knows that Suarez wasn't punished for racism (even though he could have been).

    Liverpool fans are the only ones who have to stay in denial while they chant 'there's only one lying bastard' at Evra when they know full well their club forcefully spread lies about Evra as it went into PR meltdown.

    Suarez is repeatedly showing himself up as a lying scumbag.

    By denying to Sid Lowe that he called Evra negro, when he admitted as much in the case shows he can't even keep track of his own lies now.

    How Sid Lowe fell for it is anyone's guess. Maybe because of his Spanish football focus, he didn't follow the case properly or bother with the report.

    It's an odd article that. Some good parts too it, but the bit about the racism issue comes across like it's from Liverpool's PR department. Seems to be similar articles out there today as well.

    Obviously a group interview trying to improve PR at the start of the season. Maybe the papers are so happy for the opportunity they're not trying to make things too hard for him.

    Well, Sid Lowe has a hard-on for anything South American, doesn't he? It's hardly surprising.

    He's also a Liverpool, if I'm not mistaken. He's usually very good, but this latest piece on Suarez is awful. To be so casually dismissive of the use of that word, smacks of lazy writing. Yes it can be used like 'mate' in South America (I'm married into a S.A. family,) but only if you are indeed mates with that person (and I don't think anyone is making that case for Evra and Suarez.)

    I got tired of hearing all these arguments about nuance and decided to do some field research myself. I had a Colombian student who was black and I asked her the following:

    "If someone who wasn't your friend addressed you with the term 'negra,' or 'negrita', how would you feel?"

    She said that she would indeed be insulted by such usage.

    Two mistakes? Someone should pull out a compilation of his past incidents. He seemed to have one every other week up til he hit red hot form.

    We can still talk about how a grown man resorted to biting an opponent on the football pitch, twice.

    You can never escape that.

    He's in the form of his life, people are slowly forgetting some of his lower moments and he brings up racially abusing Evra again? He is a moron of the highest level.

    This. You'd think he'd be keener than anyone to put all this behind him.
