Let's not get overboard...

Haha yeah...

But to put it into context: if you asked any Liverpool fans about Suarez they just talk about his goals and how good he was, not his racism charge, not him biting people, not him sticking his finger up to Fulham fans, not him diving, not him being a bit of a cunt when he wanted to be. Or Man United fans about Cantona...

I know this is Liverpool and United we are talking about but again I'd have taken Suarez here despite the baggage because hes brilliant and I'm sure back in the days we would have been very happy to get Cantona too.

Costa top player, best CF we've had in years, plays on edge yes but end of the day who could we replace him with? There aren't very many high level strikers out there these days.

Everything anybody needs to know about Costa ^^

Ehm yes he can.

Using this to once again post the footballing brain that is His Highness Didi Hamann's pronouncements back in August : "Costa is overrated. He had a couple of good years for Atlético Madrid, but his

Okay lets bring back Torres and sell Costa and go back to the good old days of having a little bitch upfront who was pretty much useless in games where they got a bit more physical or gritty. The one solution to solve this.

Or find a striker like Lewandowski, Suarez, Aguero...etc who is NOT AFRAID and also doesn't act like a complete cunt every match? no middle ground though as usual.

Its all well and good our own supporters saying Costa lovers have no morals but they must remember all the shit he takes as well. Just look at last season at all the players trying it on with him trying to be big in front of their mates. Just like any pub,club or bar in any city,

Heres another time someone wanted to keep his shirt for a souvenir.

That lead to this. He takes much more than he gives out.

People getting all morally superior about Diego, must have hated Droy, Doug Rougvie, Webb, all wind up merchants. Osgood was great at running his studs down defenders calves.

Ron Harris makes Costa look like an angel, so a certain poster here must hate the Chelsea legends.

Surely it's all about context. It's a completely different game now. What was normal back then is no longer acceptable. It's also a completely different global culture.

Yes, because those are the ONLY two available options. It is unimaginable that there exists a good striker who is able to compete physically but doesn't needlessly punch people in the face, right?!

Who says its totally unacceptable ? Have you watched any games in South America, Africa, Eastern Europe ?

Yes in an ideal world, all that stuff would be eradicated, but corporate media as you know Chou need the soap opera, they need the bad guy -and invariably as always its Chelsea. It will always be there Ronaldo got Rooney sent off, the other Diego got Beckham sent off in World cups and it goes on every week. Its not like he has murdered Palestinian kids, he's given another multi millionaire a slap after intense provocation. People will always cheat, and I am not going to get on some media driven bandwagon to condemn him. If we all did the logical conclusion would be to drive him and the best manager we ever had out of Stamford Bridge. :)

He never punches anyone in the face, as Keown and Savage said its always an open hand, and only then under intense provocation. TV hasnt shown the way Koscielny was having digs beforehand. Gabriel and Koschielny tried to wind him up and paid the price.

exactly.

DD was as physical as anyone can get. but he did not go about punching/scratching/slapping people. (he did slap vidic once though. :lol:). but still, there is much more to "physically imposing" than actually hitting people.

..and is on record as saying he wished he punched him full in the face :D

he seriously should have. atleast that would have made it look like a proper red.

anyways, costa needs to tone it down a couple of levels. media scrutiny will be even more on him. refs and linesman will be even more aware of him and would be looking for the slightest reason to send him off.

ps - considering the arsenal game, i dont think costa did anything wrong except for the swipe at kos. that was a red if the ref had seen and the FA will ban him.

I was just about to pull out the Chopper example, my dad was down the Bridge in the 60s and said Costa would have been mocked for being such a pussy by those standards!
