Shame of Liverpool player who encourages Evra abuse

Patrice Evra has made his debut for West Ham this afternoon as the Hammers take on an in-form Liverpool. His every touch so far jeered and booed by  Merseyside supporters.

His crime was being the victim of racist abuse by former Liverpool player, Luis Suarez in 2011.

The Uruguay international was given an eight-match ban by the Football Association after being found guilty of misconduct for using insulting words to Patrice Evra which included a reference to the player’s colour.

At the time Liverpool’s players disgracefully displayed their support for Suarez by releasing a statement and wearing T-shirts depicting an image of Suarez and his name and number seven

If this poor general behaviour from Northern fans wasn’t bad enough, former Liverpool defender John Arne Riise encouraged the abuse before kick-off. Riise told supporters to give a certain player an afternoon he will not forget.

  1. If only that Anautovic strike had gone in ! ,,, it’s the same old story . If , but ,if only .
    There are signs of getting better even if they seem pretty obscure at the moment .
    It should be obvious that we have Been missing a consistent team . We were down and tried to go for it ,,,, hats off .
    It also reminds us of just how much we are missing AC . Our game plan without the big man is flawed . We now have ten more games to secure survival ….. but beating Liverpool was always a tall order given our squad quality . Quality Summer Sighnings are imperative.
    We will stay in the Premiership,, of that I have no doubt ,,, but we need to improve big time. I remain confident that West Ham will make good sighnings in the summer .

  2. And , you so called “ Real West Ham Fans “ we were no better at Upton Park . We always lacked that quality to improve and progress ., forever fighting relegation with the odd big Win . No matter the Manager or the Team there was always the consistant failure to be one of the Big Boys . So shut the **** UP and support your Club . Your March against the Club is ill advised and Anti West Ham imo .

  3. Intriguing Sean. Masuaku spits at or towards an opponent and Mr Moyes is the first, quickest and most repeated voice to condemn that behaviour as despicable.

    Liverpool fans, not all, although a significant number, abused Evra throughout the game. On the subject of this behaviour Mr Moyes loses his voice! Funny that – is he Mr Henry’s chum and apologist?

    If this ‘veiled racism’ is not despicable Mr Moyes, what is it exactly? Find your voice and your moral compass Mr Moyes and speak out against todays despicable behaviour of the Liverpool footballing mafia.

    Mr Moyes, your silence in this matter of thinly veiled racism would be nothing short of despicable.

  4. Ruffellite, you talk absolute cobblers. We get the fact that you dislike Moyes but you cannot hold the condemnation of spitting at a fellow footballer against him. You constantly hint at racism with absolutely no proof or even decent grounds for your suspicions. You seem to work on the hope that if you throw enough **** (or talk enough in your case), some will stick.
