In a world of my own.
Fellow Posters,

Got to say I thought he was excellent saturday. I cant help but think if he wasnt the managers son he would get a lot more praise.

I thought he held the ball up so well, showed some really intelligent touches to bring others in and did the dirty job upfront on his own well.

I am not sure he is going to score that many on his own but I think with a number of players all weighing in with goals he could be a good shorter term solution.

I think we should agree to call him something different, something neutral to take away the negative connotations of sharing a surname with the manager. I'm suggesting - off the top of my head- Blair Harrold.

Blair is a bit Scottish though, as is Harrold. How about Tes Cort? A throw back to other players with relations in the game with the added bonus of sounding like a popular 80's jazz mag.

to be fair he set up Granty with a great pass nice ball that if you hit right is going in i think Blair's job is to bring the 2 forard players behind him into the game hence he doesnt shoot or run at goal to often if thats his job then he does it very well

I reckon he'd be a lot better recieved if we labelled him, say, Eddy Freastwood or Bea Larnard.

Blair's surname alway's reminds me of a certain Scottish Teatime treat.


Described on their own website as "A genuine Scottish Icon". Sounds like Blair to me.

I give you Blair Tunnock.

He should probably be named after the bloke who sponsors him. From what i've heard they have very similar traits on the football pitch.

Failing that Blair Bramble.
