  • Hey Ralf, even though i know you’re a manc I do appreciate and welcome your comments on here. I'm not sure about the Tourette's diagnosis as I'm not a doctor or mental health professional, but I thought this condition was symptomatic of not being able to stop acting out, either verbally or physically, while Suarez seems to go long periods of time with any kind of outburst, and while they are of course bias, it seems most of his team mates have nothing but good things to say about the lad.

    I'm not sure a message board is the best place to try and work out his condition, but I'd guess it’s more an inability to control outbursts during extreme emotional times. Not a great thing for a footballer who is constantly being wound up by defenders every week, so whether with us or elsewhere he needs to learn how to keep a lid on things.

    But that is my point, while I do think he deserves to be punished for yesterday, and it seems the FA are charging him with violent conduct and may go beyond the normal 3 match ban, which I don't have an issue with, what he really needs is some kind of counseling and or treatment. Maybe he's the Latin Gazza, who let’s be honest we all feel a little sorry for now, and wish someone had stepped in earlier to help him out.
