Luis Suarez says he is the member of Liverpool's SAS strike partnership best suited to a career in the other SAS. The Uruguayan says he would make a better soldier than fellow Reds striker Daniel Sturridge. Suarez, aged 26, thinks that fact that he is older than Sturridge swings things in his favour.
Liverpool: Did Luis Suarez ever want to go to Arsenal? - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Back in the summer, Arsenal were the subject of ridicule following the infamous £40m + £1 offer made for Liverpool's Luis Suarez. Arsenal were clearly under the impression that any bid exceeding the £40m mark would be enough to trigger a release clause in Suarez's contract, and set the transfer wheels in motion.
Liverpool owner John W. Henry has revealed that Arsenal's infamous £40m plus £1 bid for Luis Suarez DID activate the striker's release clause. Henry said the Reds simply refused to accept the deal and gambled that the Gunners wouldn't take the matter to the courts. At the time, the Gunners and Suarez were viewed to [.
Liverpool sent out a very clear message to the teams around them on Saturday as they confidently beat Southampton 3-0 dealing with regular pressure from the away side's attack yet maintaining a clean sheet. Reds fans may wish to distance themselves from the thoughts of an elusive title but the fact is we are four points off the top with ten games to go.
Luis Suarez has no doubt he can achieve his dream of playing Champions League football with Liverpool next season, but the olds on favorite to win Player of the Year in the Premier League does not sound convinced that Brendan Rodgers side can win the title.

"I watched the games on TV this week and when you hear that Champions League music that's motivation in itself.

Liverpool superstar Luis Suarez dreams of playing in the Champions League with Liverpool, casting further doubt on a summer move away from Anfield.

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez says he can fulfil his dreams at the club but he dismissed talk of a title challenge this season. The Uruguayan star thinks the Reds can secure Champions League qualification this season and has indicated that he has put his attempts to engineer a move away from Anfield behind him.
Liverpool were knocked out of the FA Cup on Sunday at the hands of an Arsenal side who perhaps couldn't believe their luck at 90 minutes. Liverpool were arguably the better of the two sides but unfortunately for the Reds there wasn't an end product. Some strange penalty decisions also left Liverpool fans berating Howard Webb.
Liverpool's Luis Suarez is no stranger to criticism but it doesn't usually come from his own grandmother. He has now come under fire from 65-year-old Maria Josefa Reyes, who claims she has been thrown out of the family's luxury home in Uruguay. Suarez bought the home for his mother and grandmother, and has been [.
Sunday's FA Cup match between Arsenal against Liverpool was superb. A classic cup tie with end-to-end goalmouth action resulted in a 2-1 victory for the Gunners, against an in-form Liverpool looking to build on a 5-1 demolition of Arsenal, only a week ago.
However, this game was packed with controversial decisions.
Suarez risks re-opening Evra race row I was charged without proof - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Just when we thought it is finally all over, done and dusted, it appears again, courtesy Luis Suarez. Who else?
The race row that saw all possible twists and turns resulting in Liverpool player getting banned, his image tarnished, but Suarez claims that although biting Branislav Ivanovic was a mistake but he has no regrets over the Patrice Evra race incident, which he described as "all false".
He may not have got on the scoresheet for the third week in a row but is presence is enough to leave space for others and with this piece of skill which left Sascha Riether standing in his armour it's no wonder many believe he's a shoe in for the PFA Player of the Year award.
Per Mertesacker has revealed the Arsenal squad were looking forward to welcoming Liverpool's Luis Suarez into their squad last summer and expected him to fit in well. Describing Suarez as a "cheeky boy", Mertesacker said the squad were "up for it" when they heard the Gunners were trying to sign the Reds' star striker.

Wenger: Arsenal have no regrets over failed Suarez move - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has said that he has no regrets over the club's failure to lure Liverpol striker Luis Suarez to North London last summer.
Wenger, who is preparing for Arsenal's Premier League clash at Liverpool this Saturday, was ratherblaséwhen asked about his thoughts over Suarez, with the 27-year-old set to line up against the Gunners at Anfield,
"No, there are no regrets," Wenger said, via the Guardian,
"You have sometimes regrets when a player played for you, and scores goals or does well somewhere else [but] he was never our player.

The Gunners bid £1 over a non-existent £40m release clause in the Liverpool talisman's contract.
Liverpool walked away from their Anfield fortress on Tuesday night feeling elated after emphatically beating their Merseyside rivals Everton. The game could not have gone much better for Liverpool who confidently put four past the Toffees without much concern of conceding. An opener from captain Steven Gerrard was followed by two from Sturridge and then a final goal from Luis Suarez completed the rout.
I'm sure there were harsh words said out there between Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge despite being 4-0 up last night as Suarez lost the rag after Sturridge went for his hat-trick instead of setting him up for a tap-in.
And he was probably right to lose the rag given Sturridge's missed penalty shortly before however Brendan Rodgers was having none of it and hauled Sturridge off with the player none too happy with the decision!
In one of the most anticipated rematches of the season, Liverpool proved that they belong once more in the discussion of the English Premier League's top four clubs.
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard opened the floodgates and after two brilliant Daniel Sturridge goals in the first half, Luis Suarez completed the 4-0 rout against Everton in a mid-week Liverpool derby at Anfield.

In the review of this past weekend's refereeing decisions in the Premier League, there's only one place to start and thats at Anfield where Luis Suarez was judged to be brought down by Aston Villa keeperBrad Guzan. The score was 2-1 to the away side at the time, so this was no doubt a huge decision for refereeJon Moss to make.
Liverpool managed to salvage a point from their clash with Villa on Saturday after initially looking as though they would be lucky to collect any points at all. The Reds got off to a terrible start with Paul Lambert's side finding the back of the net twice in the first half. A late goal before the half time whistle and a controversial penalty in the second half though allowed Liverpool to level the game up.
The discussion about whether Liverpool should have been awarded a penalty against Aston Villa on Saturday has nothing to do with whether Luis Suarez dived or not, but that's not what mainstream media want to hear. What the focus should be on is whether referee Jon Moss made a correct decision.
With the aid of TV video replays, a luxury that Moss and his match official colleagues did not have, we can see that the referee made the correct call.
With Aston Villa leading 2-1 at Anfield in the second half, Liverpool striker Luis Suarez had a one-on-one opportunity to score against Villa with goalkeeper Brad Guzan rushing out to try to stop the shot, but Suarez went down in the box and the Reds were awarded a penalty kick, which Steven Gerrard calmly slotted into the back of the net.
An excellent banner proclaiming 'Luis Suarez could nutmeg a mermaid' was spotted in the crowd during last night's game between Liverpool and Everton. As well as no doubt raising a smirk from almost everyone who saw it, it also provoked an online squabble between Liverpool fans and Manchester United supporters as to who could lay [.
After a day of bizarre speculation which saw Reds across the world debate over the wisdom of a possible offer for Juan Mata, United and a major force in Spanish football are linked yet again.
However, today United are the part set to receive an offer, rather than the one submitting it, as Real Madrid are reportedly set to present an offer for Wayne Rooney this summer, having decided that the United number 10 is an infinitely easier target to secure than Sergio Aguero.
