There’s been a lot of opinion on the possibility of Arsenal signing Luis Suarez. When I first heard about the £30 million bid, my initial thoughts were that I didn’t want him at Arsenal and one of the reasons was because he is overrated. Added to the fact he is a racist who likes to eat other human beings, it would not be a good fit for us, in my opinion.
But now it seems Arsenal might increase their bid for him and test Liverpool’s resolve.
There is a definite split between Arsenal fans as to whether they want the Liverpool striker at The Emirates. Without trying to sound like Jeremy Clarkson, “some say” he’s exactly what we need – while others say he has no place at our club.
So I thought I would do a very simple poll to gauge supporter opinion – simply, do you want Luis Suarez at Arsenal?
I thought about having more than two answers but there are no other conditions really – if we take him then he will have the same attitude he’s had when he was at Liverpool and Ajax. Throughout his footballing career he hasn’t shown that he is capable of changing. He deliberately hand-balled a goal-bound shot in the World Cup, dives and cheats as well as being extremely outspoken. Whatever you think about Liverpool, they have supported Luis Suarez through his racist displays (even wearing Suarez t-shirts to show support) and through his other misdemeanours. Yet, he has constantly said he wants to leave Liverpool. And if he wasn’t content about saying he wants to “move abroad” because the media are persecuting him, he’s now turned around and said he would actually be open to a move to Arsenal.
You all know what I think about him. He’s a racist, cheat, diver and bites people. I don’t care how talented you are I don’t want to see him in an Arsenal shirt. As Arseblog pointed out, we’ve had players who have had problems before but those players have usually grown up with the club and shown remorse for their actions. We’ve never forked out £35 million plus for a player with a lot of problems.
So Luis Suarez – do you want him at Arsenal?
