Football fans generally get outraged far too much and I am not really outraged at this. BUT it was really disappointing to read the excellent WSC magazine this month doing a feature on utility men… there, at the top, was a picture of Chris Baird!
Hurray, I thought, a bit of credit for the man who beat Juventus from the middle of the pitch, who held Spurs scoreless at WHL at centre back, and who was generally about as good a utility man as you might find.
But the article didn’t mention Baird. No, Blackpool’s Chris Basham was the man under discussion. That is him next to Bairdinho. FFS.
