Brady courts further controversy with rival comparsion

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.

Brady wrote in her column “Man City ace Raheem Sterling only outdone by Eden Hazard this season…he is reaching towards George Best level. The 23-year-old attacker has hit 10 goals for club and country this season and SunSport columnist Karren Brady reckons only Chelsea’s Belgian wizard can match the City slicker. Harry Kane in the view of England boss Gareth Southgate, is the world’s best striker. But even the Three Lions skipper is being outdone by Raheem Shaquille Sterling, who leaves most teams twisted and turned like an eight-corded rope.

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?

  1. I don’t know what the big deal is. I think she’s entitled to an opinion as much as anyone else.

  2. There is no player today in the First Division ( Premiership) that compares to George Best .
    The only player that came within touching distance was Paul Gascoine . Brady has got cross eyes . Stirling is good – yes – but nowhere near the class of George Best . Even the well remembered and loved Charlie George was a technically better player than Stirling .
    But nobody has come close to George Best . I am old enough and seen enough to have this opinion because I was lucky enough to see BEST ply his trade .

  3. We live in a country of free speech, she is perfectly entitled to have her column in the Sun, don’t mean you have to read it, anyone that upsets Manure fans is fine by me!

  4. Sure can have her opinion ,but I’m Kevin on this one.I,too,saw Bestie play and his skill,ball control and footballing brain are second to none.Sterling? Yes he’s quick but he doesn’t have the attributes that Bestie had.And that’s my opimion.
