Although Luis Suarez was initially banned from playing football for four months (following his World Cup bitey nonsense) and Barcelona were initially banned from making any transfers for 14 months (following their breaking of U18 transfer rules), the Uruguayan made his debut for the Catalans on Monday night. Justice my a**e!

The former Liverpool man was only cleared to train with his new club and play in friendlies on only allowed on Thursday by the Court of Arbitration for Sport. Coming on as a sub in Barca’s Gamper Cup clash with Mexican side Club Leon, Suarez (wearing no. 9) didn’t make too much of an impact in his 13 minutes of action, although his side won 6-0.

A front four of Suarez, Messi, Neymar and Iniesta looks rather tasty and arguably matches Real Madrid’s Bale, Benzema, Ronaldo and James quartet. Should be a few decent Clasicos this season then!

    My Clasico prediction: Pepe and Suarez clashing and exploring new depths of pathetic behaviour.

    Shame he couldn’t get counseling for diving too.

    I know he’s a big draw footballer and is there to ply his ‘trade’. but a four month ban by FIFA ‘amended by Barca..and, a transfer ban amended by Barca.. bit convenient innit..

    This clubs well up in it somewhere…
    My moneys on boardroom hypnotism or flat out bribery..
