An update on yesterday’s Chris Baird rumours
So that`s the end of that then.
Whether you were excited about the rumours regarding the pursuit of free-agent, versatile defender Chris Baird or not, it would seem speculation was wide of the mark.
Initially, I thought the move whiffed a bit of desperation, when it was announced Baird played at full-back. Bringing in a player as cover for our starting full-backs- when our starting central defenders are stinking up the joint- didn`t make much sense. But after learning that Baird preferred to play in the heart of the back line, I thought maybe Dougie was planning a clandestine manoeuvre to bring Baird in to replace Zat Knight.
Whatever my thoughts, your thoughts or anyone`s thoughts regarding Chris Baird were, Bolton Wanderers will not be moving for the versatile defender.
So they say, anyway…
