The fan who called for Liverpool to release Luis Suarez to Arsenal has started a fresh petition on Change.Org demanding action over Daniel Agger's tackle on Jack Wilshere during the international friendly between England and Denmark.

Agger, who plays for Liverpool at domestic level, clattered into Wilshere in the first half, and the knock caused a hairline fracture in the Arsenal midfielder's left foot.

The official line, as reported by (h/t Jason Pettigrove of Bleacher Report), is that Wilshere will miss six weeks of football as a result of the injury.

The petition brands the unfortunate challenge as part of a master plan by Liverpool owner John W. Henry to destabilise the Gunners:

In the past few days it has been well-known that Liverpool FC have been on a campaign to destroy Arsenal and we, the fans of Arsenal, believe Daniel Agger was instructed by Liverpool's owner John Henry to target Jack Wilshere during the match.

As far as conspiracy theories go, it's pretty elaborate. But assuming that Liverpool will hand over their top striker in Suarez for free, along with £4.5 million in compensation, then there's no reason to think that they won't also be happy with the proposals for Agger to serve a six-game ban.
