…through the footballing nation last night.
When it was announced Robbie Savage had broken his leg.
He’s just going to have to face it that other than Blackburn or Wales fans it probably brought at least a smile to everyone who follows football, probably around the world.
Has to be said he was near if not the top of the list of players I’d like to see come out the wrong end of a crunching tackle, hoisted and petard are words that spring to mind.
There are some you’d just like to see go into a Denis Irwin & Brian McClair v David Busst challenge and end up being poor old Busst – you don’t want to see the picture if you’re at all squeamish, Busst certainly wasn’t one though and I wouldn’t want to see Schmeichel chucking up afterwards.
So yes Savage was up there, along with Jens Lehmann, Paul Dickov, Michael Brown…I’m sure I should be able to think of more all scummy individuals of no great loss to the game.
