A lot of weird things happen at British soccer matches: punch outs, dropping trou and men acting like hooligans — and that's not only in the stands but on the pitch. Now Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has given more bad behavior for soccer fans to chew on. Suarez's apparent bite on Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic has been called "embarrassing" and many believe the talented Uruguayan is now in the "last chance saloon" as a Reds player. In plain English — that means banned from English soccer forever. The controversial forward has once more attracted headlines for all the wrong reasons after appearing to bite Ivanovic midway through the second half of Liverpool's 2-2 draw with Chelsea, an incident the FA say they are to review. Isn't it supposed to be having Liverpool with some fava beans and a nice Chianti? Suarez — widely considered one of the top players in the world —is no stranger to cannibalistic tendencies.  He was given a seven-match ban for biting another player in 2010. To make matters worse for Chelsea, the 26-year-old scored a late goal to ensure that Liverpool escaped with a 2-2 draw against the Champions League contenders. In addition to threatening to undermine what has been a promising season for Liverpool, Suarez makes his case to win the PFA Footballer of the Year, for which he is nominated, even more difficult with his history of bizarre behavior.
