Technically this little flick didn’t quite come off the way Neymar intended, but he definitely meant for that ridiculous touch to redirect into Luis Suárez’s path, and holy shit, can you imagine having such otherworldly talent that even when your unbelievably audacious moves don’t work exactly right, they still end up…
Luiz Suarez put Barcelona up early in today’s El Clásico with this slick finish. While the goal itself was quite good, Sergi Roberto’s smart running and perfectly timed layoff with the outside of his foot were even better.
Lionel Messi, who was already the cutest little assassin in soccer history, shared this picture of some pajamas teammate Luis Suárez bought him:
Just thirteen minutes after Álvaro Morata drew things level, Luis Suárez put away a Lionel Messi rebound to restore Barcelona’s 2-1 advantage. Juventus now has 10 minutes plus stoppage time to get a goal, or the Champions League trophy will go to the Nou Camp.
Just look at this shit. This is what Barcelona have been doing all season. Unreal Lionel Messi passes, selfless decisions by Luis Suárez, and calm finishing by Neymar.
Sweet mother of God, Barcelona are a force of nature. It’s currently about an hour into their match against Getafe. Lionel Messi, Luis Suárez, and Neymar have all scored. And those goals make up just five of their six total, each scored with some of the most outrageous skill you’ll see this year or any other.
Today’s La Liga battle at Camp Nou started off strong for the home side as Barcelona easily moved down the pitch—Sergio Busquets had a lot to do with this thanks to finding Messi on a long through ball—with Luis Suárez depositing the ball in the net, all in less than a minute.
Yesterday, Barcelona's Luis Suárez worked over PSG's David Luiz, hitting him with a brutal and embarrassing nutmeg on his way to a goal. Then he did it again. Sensing that her son could use some soothing words to heal his charred, diced, and nutmeg-flavored ego, his mother posted this message of encouragement:
This is the quintessential Luis Suárez goal. Finding himself stranded alone deep into PSG territory, he sees the three defenders between him and the goal and thinks, "Hm, how about I just bang my way through them all and score?"
This is precisely the kind of game Barcelona were hoping to get out of Luis Suárez when bringing him in this summer, and the kind he's been delivering regularly as of late. With his combination of confidence, unceasing work, deadly finishing, and selflessness, he was able to will an unimpressive Barça to a blowout…
It feels a little weird saying this about a known shithead, but we can't help but appreciate how Luis Suárez's hard work on the pitch is finally resulting in the goals his play has deserved. But even in the face of criticism earlier in the season, as Suárez struggled to mesh perfectly with his new Barcelona teammates,…
Much has been made of Barcelona, who, though still dope as hell, are diminished from the time a few years back when they were invincible, and Luis Suárez, who is no longer the best player on his own team, let alone in the league. But Barcelona and Suárez are back in England today against Manchester City in the…
So, this was really sexy.
In the picture above, which captures a scene from Barcelona's 3-1 victory over Atlético Madrid last night, you can see Barcelona's entire season. It shows Luis Suárez, Neymar, and Lionel Messi—the three players whose individual brilliance has kept the team in the hunt for all the major trophies despite the turmoil…
Having the world's fanciest dribbler weave past defenders and flick the ball out to the world's best all-around striker, who then chips a pass to the world's best player, who then pokes it past a defender, then past the keeper is a pretty foolproof strategy, it turns out.
You have to give it to Luis Suárez for at least one thing: the guy is not afraid to be honest, even if it makes him sound like a crazy man defending his own sanity. Judging from some excerpts in Sport from his new autobiography, the book is nowhere near the typical athlete's mid-career hagiography.
Like, c'mon. This shouldn't be legal. Sure, it's only the Catalan Supercup, but Espanyol are a real team and Luis Suárez still had to juke the defender out of his shorts before chipping an outrageous pass onto the head of Gerard Piqué. Here's the vine:
The worst part of Luis Suárez's suspension for the player himself probably hasn't been the jokes about his cannibalistic supervillain image, nor missing out on the early parts of this promising Barcelona season, nor the weekly adulation from tens of thousands of fans he used to receive whenever he stepped on the pitch…
A kid at a soccer camp asked Jamie Carragher, former Liverpool teammate of the bitey Luis Suárez, if Suárez ever sank his teeth into him. Carragher gave no answer except for a laugh. Kid should have followed up.
