As some have pointed out Suarez is a horrible, spiteful player on the pitch, which is probably why I remember him more for the Evra incident than anything else he may have done with his career.
If he were to come we wouldn't be getting the L'pool player of 2013/14, we'd be getting a player in his 36th year.
Clearly it would indicate that we are riding a completely different wave where transfers are concerned than we were only 5 months ago.
Personally I'd much prefer if our manager and backroom team would demonstrate their coaching capabilities by making our good/great players (including the international Watkins) into even better players, rather than going down the oven ready, perhaps overcooked route in Suarez.

Suarez may be a good idea short term. Sign him in January and let him go end of season. Loan Archer out to a Championship side so he comes back stronger for next season. Suarez has said he wants to play for Corinthians in Brazil and their league starts in May. He keeps fit and makes an impact from the bench and we get a boost to the squad. Minimal cost in my opinion, but I wouldn't want to sign him to a longer contract or in the summer. It's now or never for me.

It wasn't that many moons ago that Steve Bruce was trying to get Jack Colback from Newcastle. Now we're signing players like Coutinho and Digne and linked with Suarez. Exciting times if you ask me.

This may just be a PR masterstroke, of course.

We're just getting the idea out there that on top of Coutinho and Digne, we could attract a player like Suarez... Every paper will mention it, it will be all over social media and suddenly the idea of playing for Aston Villa seems a little attractive to players all over the world. If we're good enough for Coutinho and Suarez...

I don't think he would be a good signing, and I don't really want to have him at our club. But the suggestion that he might come, even in the summer, could be much more significant than him playing for us would ever be.

Suarez is knocking on the door of 36, though, being able to attract a player that age doesn't really say much.

Plus he's a nasty racist piece of shit. No thanks.

Fair comment.  You wont have the Sky reports sniggering 'lets be realistic' anymore, that's for sure.

I don't want him, but he was 34 in Jan.  He wont be knocking on the door of 36 for almost 2 whiole seasons from now.

He's not as world class as he was but he's still up there.
Awesome.that we're linked with players of this footballing quality now as opposed to Jordan Bowery.

That sounds as convincing my dad swearing there was nothing wrong with describing something as 'n****r brown', which was as common as saying bottle green or navy blue in the 70s. The only thing he missed out is 'they' are the first ones to laugh when you call them chalky.

John Terry had said and done worse and there was lots of opposition to him coming to Villa. He was instrumental in us getting promoted and being in the position we are now and I think most people look on his time here as positive and his behaviour was exemplary. I'm not condoning anything Suarez said of course not but his explanation about it being more of a language thing at least holds some credibility. If we sign Suarez and he bangs in a few vital goals for us I'm pretty sure his past indiscrepancies will become less of an issue. Things are moving fast and our owners are clearly fed up of long termism and want to get the ball rolling. This is the big push for the top and they have decided to back Gerrard to get us there.
