Didn't watch the game last night but saw the footage of Carragher with Evra talking about the infamous T shirt incident. Good that somebody has finally come out and acknowledged what a massive cock up it was.
Still bizarre to look back at now, I think that if that would have been Shelvey or Charlie Adam abusing Evra the club wouldn't have taken the stance that it did. To me now it looks pretty obvious that we were just bending over backwards to accommodate an exceptional talent during a period of mediocrity. We knew how good he was and we let him get away with murder, the biting incident was another example.
Backed Suarez to the hilt at the time myself & bought into all of the spin & character assassinations of Evra, which is a bit embarrassing looking back now. Even more so I think John Terry was involved in a similar incident around the same time & I vaguely remember vilifying him for it while at the same time supporting & making countless excuses for Suarez.
Just shows how tribal it can get at times
