Suarez is good, but could be better

Ah Luis Suarez. One minute you’re a striking sensation, the next you couldn’t hit a cows arse with a banjo. You’re such an enigmatic front-man; it’s hard to classify you as good, great or world class. During Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Newcastle United, you possessed the necessary traits that borderline the latter with ease.

But, how long until you show similar capabilities once again? Two Games? Four? Ten? When it comes to strikers, nobody blows as hot or cold as Suarez, which has often proved to be the main critique of the Uruguay international.

Maybe I’m being too harsh of the Reds front-man. Maybe with the media witch hunt, and his continued theatrics coupled with his racist allegations from 12 months ago, the spot light is shining brighter of Suarez than any other player in the Premiership.

Nevertheless, while the former Ajax star can put in a performance similar to that of Sunday’s stalemate with the Magpies, he is more than capable of turning out a below par display in the next, at times putting a Jekyll and Hyde act during a 90 minute encounter, such is his inconsistency.

It’s this hot and cold facet of his game that really hinders the 25-year-old from making substantial strides in his personal quest to make it as one of football’s best players. Suarez certainly possesses the attributes to succeed in the game, his close control, agility and attacking prowess all evident of this.

However, it’s his unpredictability that holds him back. This will not only hinder him individually, but also Liverpool as a whole. With the Uruguayan the only fit striker at present, following an injury to Fabio Borini and Andy Carroll’s loan move to West Ham United, the Reds will be desperate for him to blow hotter rather than cold for an extended period of time rather than revert back into the Suarez of old.
