TRANSFER Balls: Eurosport has a question about Liverpool’s loverly Luis Suarez:

Do Arsenal really want a player with a rap sheet as long as Luis Suarez’s? Let’s take a look.

That look features 6 of Suarez’s most heinous acts.

6. Uses his hand to stop a certain goal against Uruguay in the World Cup

5. Handballs a goal against Mansfield in the FA Cup

4. Bites a player in Holland

3. Bites the arm of Chelsea’s Ivanovic

2 Uses racist language against Manchester United’s Patrice Evra

1. Suarez refusing to shake Evra’s hand – “It really does get no lower than that.”

Not shaking a man’s hand is worse than racially abusing him. Got that?

Of course, given Suarez’s media profile being filmed shaking his hand is preferable to be filmed not shaking it. The history books will paint Evra as something of an enlightened hero…
