    http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/world-cup-2014/luis-suarez-faces-two-year-3757497?rlabs=3 Knowing FIFA though, they're a soft touch and probably wont impose anything near the maximum!

    Maradona v Messi

    I'm a great admirer of Lionel Messi. Not since Maradona have I enjoyed watching someone play as much as I like watching Messi. And in the ensuing period there has been many "great" players.

    My take on spain so far....

    Before I start let me just say I'm "neutral" on spain. As in, I didn't favour them to win the world cup, but at the same time I really wouldn't mind if they did. Obviously this is a very talented team with half the starting 11 knowing each other real well from their club Barcelona. They are...
