Crerand: You Wouldn’t Get Fed Up Of Punching Suarez

Paddy Crerand has torn a strip of Luis Suarez following his celebration in front of David Moyes at the weekend. Following repeated embarrassing dives, most notably the hilarious belly flop against Stoke, Moyes correctly labelled Suarez a diver. After scoring in the Merseyside derby, Suarez ran straight over to Moyes and dived in front of him.

Of course, it was Moyes who had the last laugh though, with Suarez scoring a great last minute winner only for it to be incorrectly ruled out for offside.

Crerand was asked about his thoughts on Suarez following his celebration against Everton.

“I thought that was disgusting,” he said. “Can you imagine a Manchester United player doing that? The manager would have gone off his head if one of his own players was doing that. It’s the height of ignorance to do something like that, bad manners, and he’s the type of fella you would expect it from. You wouldn’t get fed up punching him, would you? It’s not a nice thing to say, I shouldn’t say that, but the way he behaves is disgusting. If he’s got a family, I hope he brings them up better than he was brought up. He just be punished for that. I’m not saying you should punch him all night, I was just joking, but he shouldn’t have done that.”

It is also interesting to note that Everton fans were singing our “always the victims, it’s never your fault” and “murderers” chants. If you didn’t watch the game, you will not know this, as no media outlet reported on this. Everton fans have been widely commended for their response to the Hillsborough findings and whilst they have every reason to be angry about Heysel (Everton were denied the opportunity of playing in Europe with their best ever squad thanks to the deaths caused by Liverpool fans at Heysel and Liverpool fans respond by mocking them for it), their fans don’t taunt Liverpool over Hillsborough. It is obviously a tragedy that effected the entire city and Everton fans will have lost family members at friends in the disaster. The fact that they sing the song would suggest, like we said all along, the chant is not about Hillsborough. It’s just a shame that when our fans sing it, every single newspaper reports on it and claims we are mocking the dead, yet when Everton fans sing it, not a single paper mentions it.

    The aggressive scot in paddy crerand is coming out there

    Im dressing up as my mum.
    I have a curly wig, nice frock, i have a pipe, the times, I wont be shaving my beard and I have lipstick on ala Eddie Hitler. In fact I look just like him in drag except with a 10inch hobo beard with grey flecks. Quite the catch wink wink.
    I will be puffing on some dark shag

  4. Red Robin says:

    Classless twat.

    That gutter rodent has a low class, as low as the other twat from Argentina, Tevez. Actually, I fed up to seeing them around. Wanna puke till my stomach empty and puke again. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

  5. samuel - united WE stand says:

    The midfield of giggs, scholes, keane and becks was primarily a flat 4-4-2, they’d have been easily by-passed and dominated by more fluid teams these days. United really shouldn’t be looking to emulate that flat midfield again. The personnel and tactics were different, really should move on.

  6. wayne says:

    Erm Scholes isn’t picked as a box to box he’s in their to control games and for his passing how was his passing percentage?
    In the 2 losses Utd were playing with 10 men because Nani was shit,regardless of formation its up to players to do their job otherwise its obvious the central midfield will get overrun
    Think you need to understand why Scholes is getting picked in the first place before putting the blame squarely on his shoulders
    Why don’t you show everyone his passing percentage in those games then we can all make a proper judgment of his contribution

  7. Bobby Charlton's combover says:

    @Proverb

    Be careful you don’t run into Paddy Crerand or he’ll knock the shite out of you.

  8. mikeyboy says:

    Well , well. Crerand playing up to his home crowd I see.

    No mention of Rat face Neville goading the crowd v Liverpool.

    No mention of ridiculous dives by Nani, Wellbeck, Young and co

    He was very quite when Ronaldo was swan diving all over the place

    Oh, and whilst we’re on the subject of hilarious belly flops, can you tell me the difference between Suarez getting fouled then attempting a pathetic dive v Stoke, and this one by Wayne I want to leave, no I don’t youve given me more money Rooney?

  9. Bobby Charlton's combover says:

    @samuel – agreed – I just wanted to make the point that we used to dominate teams in midfield and in the last season or two we haven’t been doing that.

  10. Red Robin says:

    Wrong smiley :d

    :vomit-smiley-020:

    Tonight game. It would be the icing on the cake if we could beat them again tonight. It will crush them bone to dust. I’m expecting youths at our back four (Vermijl, Evans, Keane, Buttner). Nani-Scholes-Ando-Powell in midfield. Welbeck and Chico to punch them upfront.

  11. Red Robin says:

    Oh I’m crap with smilies. Damn.

  12. Proverb says:

    I’m dressing up as a farmer for Halloween, I’m soo cool. blush!

    mikeyboy
    With jonjo Shlevey and Suarez you dirty bin dippers have got the players you deserve. With your division one style manager and your murdering fans I cant see Liverpool getting champions league football in the next 5 years. The difference is whatever trips/dives done by our players they were done in the flow of the game, suarez dives as soon as Gerrard puts it in row Z

  14. WeAreUnited says:

    @Proverb

    it will interesting to see which line-up sir is puttign on, if those are the players not travelling.

    Though it’s not that hard to pick. Some surprises for me.

    BTW. You put Scholesy two times. so is he there or not? I suppose not. So my line-up is this.

    I think SAF kinda wiill play it safe, by putting Cleverley on. Even though he played in the last-game. A few tweaks from me.

    Lindegaard
    Rafael Keane Evans Buttner
    Fletcher
    Cleverley Anderson
    Nani Chicha Welbeck

  15. samuel - united WE stand says:

    Bobby – true. I think united are just lacking that complete central midfielders. The midfielders united currently have are good at one thing. Cleverley is a short passer, only time will tell if he’ll be a dominant player and offer more defensive shift. Anderson has the ability to be a dominant player but he’s been ridden with injuries. He’s shown improvement but he needs more game time. Giggs is a winger converted centrally but he hasn’t got the legs anymore which has resulted in below par showings from him, scholes can still ping passes and is still a class act but in a game which teams possess energetic players, he gets overwhelmed, carrick is mainly an efficient player, he does his job well but he isn’t energetic enough to dominate. My general point is, we need to see an evolution of the central midfield. Some are past their best, some have a point or two to prove and need a chance and united have mainly young players there. I don’t think we have an effective complete central midfield yet, i think fergie is looking at the younger players to step up in that role in order to solve it (and i hope they do) but i’ll tell you right now, the goals united are conceding goals and looking vulnerable due to a lack of concentration and defensive discipline/responsibility all around the team. We need to work harder and be compact, more desire and fight has to be shown to nullify the opposition. Look, the premier/champions league is filled with classy player will find a way to unlock you regardless of how solid a team you are and perhaps sometimes, we should acknowledge the quality shown by an opposition but the defensive lapses around the team needs to be eradicated, because even if you have a strong midfield, without the effort of the entire team, you can still be by-passed.

  17. Bobby Charlton's combover says:

    @samuel – well put, we have no complete central midfielders. They’re either past their best or not the complete article. Of the ones we have Anderson is the most complete but injuries are really stunting his
    development so he’s nearly always a bit rusty when he’s playing or he’s not playing because he’s injured.
    Tom is doing ok but only ok. A bit overwhelmed at times. I know Pogba is history but in him I saw a tough, energetic and skilful player. It looks like he’s doing ok at Juventus too.

  18. Proverb says:

    Me bad at @wayne, one of my sources provided me with that sets of squads, one which is not traveling and the other that does…
    But seems he made a mistake there, its crazy cause i cannot point from which squad he’s supposed to not be named :D

  19. Proverb says:

    @Bobby Charlton’s Combover

    Seeing as you didn’t put a smiley
    Are you having a dig? ;)

  20. Marq says:

    If you’d read calmly, you will see that I did not blame Scholes of anything. I merely pointed out that there is a weakness when players start to close him down and run at him, which many teams are doing now. Defence is a team thing. Having Messi and Ronaldo in your team won’t stop the opposition from scoring.

    My point is just that Scholes should only play games that are close to dead rubber, to save the legs of others for more important games. The likes of Cleverley & Anderson need all the game time. If Scholes is starting ahead of them in most games, as with the case with Anderson, something is terribly wrong. We need to move forward, and it is not about finding a player who is better than Scholes to replace him, because there aren’t any at the moment. It is about trusting others, and we have been 3 years late with that. If we do not trust Anderson, and yet we don’t get another player in, what are we up to?

  21. Marq says:

    On the Torres dive

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2225617/Clattenburg-admits-wishes-hed-NOT-sent-Torres-ref-stands-accused-calling-Chelsea-star-Mikel-monkey.html

    Look at the second picture. That is one nasty trip by Evans huh. My 3 year old cousin would definitely have gone down with that kind of contact.

  22. Costas says:

    I’d rather see Scholes start tonight too. Sunday’s game showed the way forward as far as our midfield is concerned and energy is extremely vital. So hopefully it will be the same front 6 starting against Arsenal. As for tonight, I could care less about going through. Just avoid any injuries and give the likes of Ando and Fletch more match practice. With the Arsenal game 60 hours away, I am hoping Evans won’t start.

  23. Bobby Charlton's combover says:

    @Proverb I’m not having a dig. I rate Pogba as a player. Unfortunately his attitude towards us left a little to be desired.

  24. Bobby Charlton's combover says:

    So apparently the ref called him a ‘monkey’ even though he didn’t hear it being right beside him but Ramires who wasn’t that close and who has an intermediate level of English did. I don’t believe it for a second that the ref would think that let alone say it. Not for a second.

  25. ji sung says:

    Paddy Crerand is a huge legend! Whad a man he is! Dear me…

    On another note, just want to give some credit where its due. Michael carrick was involved in 2 really important moments on Sundays game. His pass to van persie who then put through young on goal and carricks great ball forward into Robin for our third. Well played lad. More of that please. He’s an important player for us!

    Good luck to the lads tonight. I’d go with this team…Johnstone, vermijl, wootton, evans, buttner, nani, fletcher, anderson, lingard, Macheda and Welbeck. Come on LADS!!!!! Let’s do these rent boy twats again!

  26. akanemo says:

    hello friends could some one link me any of the live streaming links
    ?

  27. ji sung says:

    At costas – “I could care less about going through”
    Your a cunt! The league cup is an important competition in my eyes and a important comp for MUFC. Its a competition where young players can make their mark and force their way into SAF’s plans. MUFC has and will always be about youth. It is the way forward so tonights game is an important one imo. Lots will disagree but…

  28. Marq says:

    @Bobby

    It makes more sense that what Clattenburg said was “Shut Up, Mikel”, rather than “Shut Up, Monkey”

    The funny thing about Chelsea’s claims are that they claim Clattenburg called Mata a “Spanish Twat” but, he didn’t hear it. They claim Clattenburg called Mikel a monkey, but Mikel didn’t hear it. So who heard what? Sounds all fabricated to me.

  29. akanemo says:

    any links at all please?

  30. mikeyboy says:

    Goat petticoat:

    that’s the best you can do? say that Rooney’s dive was in the flow of the game?
    Ahahahahahah !

    Sorry excuse for a fan. Especially the murderers line.

    i’ve no time for people like you who continue that kind of talk, it’s just as much of an insult to Man Utd fans as it is Liverpool fans , and perpetuates the whole Munich/Hillsborough thing . ANYBODY making jokes/songs/jibes about either is sub human in my book

    This is about football. Get a life

  31. utd_fc says:

    dunno what the big deal with that celebration was. i hate suarez but that was pretty cheeky and i had a good laugh at that, as did Moyes.

  32. MU4eva says:

    Surprised Paddy wasn’t pulled up by someone for that bit about his family.
    A bit too aggressive if you ask me, I totally cringed when I heard it and couldn’t believe what I was watching. I don’t want anyone talking crap like that in my club and attacking anyones kids, family life or whatever like that no matter who they are… confessing to not having seen it just added to the whole disaster.
    Suarez might be shady, but Paddy just went and screwed things up pretty bad saying something worse than a mock dive. Such a shame.
