West Ham Vice-Chairman Karren Brady has courted further controversy this morning in her Sun football column by comparing rival Premier League footballers to the great George Best.
With his displays so far this season for Manchester City and England, only Chelsea’s Eden Hazard is an attacking match.
Claret and Hugh view:
Many West Ham supporters have long believed that the Baroness’s Sun football diary is a conflict of interest and this is yet another example of praising an opposition player who helped thrash the Hammers 4-0 just last week at the London Stadium. To compare the late, great George Best to a current rival player is also a dangerous game in the world of football and is guaranteed to upset the majority of Manchester United supporters. I suppose at least she wasn’t comparing a rival team current player to the likes of West Ham greats Bobby Moore, Billy Bonds, Sir Trevor Brooking, Martin Peters or Geoff Hurst but nothing seems to scared in her football diary. Her previous columns have upset West Ham supporters, rival clubs, chairmen and players alike.
We ask in today’s Claret and Hugh poll whether the West Ham Vice Chairman should give up her tabloid column in the Sun?
