LUIS SUAREZ – WHAT COULD HAPPEN TO THE LIVERPOOL STRIKER?

By CHRISTOPHER DAVIES

IS BITING AN OPPONENT IN THE LAWS OF THE GAME?
Not specifically. Thankfully it is so rare the International Football Association Board, FIFA’s law-making body, have not seen fit to include biting in Law 12 (fouls and misconduct) but it would come under violent conduct and if a referee saw a player bite an opponent it would be a red card offence

TIM RICH of The Independent on heroin and incest...interviewing the wrong Kanoute...and a fabulous lunch in the occupied territories


Have you ever worked in a profession other than football?

NEIL HARMAN on chatting with Sir Matt...Contemplation Point...and wonderful Fox pies


Have you ever worked in a profession other than football?
If you count marking up the newspapers for delivery as a 14-year-old in Leigh-on-Sea and then doing shifts before and after school behind the counter in the same local newsagents, I suppose that's my only other profession.

FWA Q&A: RORY SMITH

RORY SMITH of The Times on being mistaken for a drugs trafficker in Chile...why Ian Herbert grew a beard in 17 minutes...and Joycey’s two-foot long loaf

Have you ever worked in a profession other than journalism?
Regulars at several pubs in west Yorkshire will bear witness to the fact that I’m a better barman than a journalist. I was a Christmas card salesman for a while, too – in an office, not door-to-door, like some sort of festive tinker – but the best job I ever had was with a landscape gardener. My boss was a raging alcoholic. We’d do ...
