"What doesn't kill us makes us stronger! Take the ban, have a Christmas break, and make headlines with your feet in Feb. Clearing your name will only drag out the negative headlines - best let it pass and know you have the support of the club and the fans."

"I'll be totally honest, if he said the word ne**o then even if he did not mean it in a racial manner (which I think he probably didn't) he is asking for trouble, as Ferguson and Evra are not going to pass up this opportunity. The ban is obviously far too much but, again, I feel we are the victims of the FA supposedly 'taking a stance' after what happened with Blatter and FIFA."

"It is utterly shocking the way the FA have reacted to this, it seems more like a witch hunt against Luis than an investigation regarding an accusation of a racist comment. Evra has done this before, surely real justice will be served and it will be Evra who gets the fine and ban"

"Seems cheats & cry babies like Ferdinand & Evra like to dish it out but cannot take it when it rebounds. players (certain players) now have a license to target & provoke other players into retaliating then make up stories to get other players into trouble. I'm seriously disgusted the war political correctness has went mad. Is there no law against provocation? F.A. Stinks"

"English F.A. is not, repeat not, an impartial organization. suggest protest after protest at Lancaster Gate to let people know what a failure this organization is. I would not be surprised if Kenny resigns in disgust at this. John Terry and Luis Suarez We love you to bits. Evra & Ferdinand are two hate filled Bigots using reverse discrimination against white players."

" Once again we see that sometimes you throw civility to the winds in dealings with fellow men. We've accepted injustices too much in this club all in the name of being civil. Why for instance, was there no protest against the Spearing red card? We just can't continue to roll over and hope that somebody will appreciate. I hope the management will go beyond words this time. We deserve RESPECT."

"Disgraceful by the F.A (Fergie Association). In real life the case of one persons word against another would never stand up in court. When are the F.A going to ban Evra then for his racist slur on Suarez!! It stinks plus i bet you the F.A will stand up and defend Jihn Terry to. "

"The sentence is absolutely absurd (period). In my opinion he should have got a one / two match ban and a huge warning for the future (for the cultural barrier thingy). But Luis didn't help himself either with the Fulham middle finger and other earlier events. I hope that this experience will help him to contain himself more on the pitch. Non the less, Luis YNWA! "

"I personaly dont think Luis is a racist in my opinion. As our statement claims Luis is from a mixed race family and has alot of dark skined friends, he has a nice uruguan skin tone himself so why would he be racist? Its a terrible decision from the FA, HES NOT A RACIST, 8 MATCH BAN IS WRONG!!! Best player in the world right now & he gets this??"

"MarkSc, The abuse that Suarez has had to endure, both physical & verbal has in fact been criminal itself, could he not bring a case against Fulham F.C.? His vulgar gesture was only his reaction to 'UNBEARABLE Verbal Abuse'. just like what he was enduring against Evra. He's only Human, bet I could provoke you if I tried hard enough or vice versa. Think about it?"

"I hope LFC will use every means/avenues at its disposal to appeal. The LFC statement is quite compelling and if it had not been used at the hearing should be in appeal. It appears the FA ruling is based on he said/he said, without any substantive evidence. It should have given the benefit of the doubt/warning. Luis, plz appeal. LFC fans, tonight's YNWA should be dedicated to Suarez. We are behind."

"Evra knows exactly what he's done and his boss has backed him because they knew this would happen. Evra is mentally weak and cannot handle the abuse that goes on in the football arena. Suarez has abused him but by putting his colour in to the equation - HE'S A RACIST! Absolute tosh! The FA have been waiting for something like this, but have got it so wrong. "

"They've charged him with misconduct, well misconduct goes on all the time so they now need to administer the same punishment on all offenders! Although the punishment of 8 matches is ridiculous, 3 matches and a behavioural program is sufficient."
