Once again at It’ll Be Off we pump furiously at the organ of truth, until nothing but fact is ejaculated on to your screen. From the official site:
To set the record straight, Chris Baguley has not gone anywhere.
Well, to be slightly more accurate he did go somewhere, because knowing he was suspended for the Nantwich Town FA Cup replay game last Wednesday, he took a last minute holiday abroad last week.
He had the good grace to come in on Saturday to apologise to Karl Marginson for missing training, but wasn’t available in time for the team photo, which seems to have sent the rumour mill into overdrive. Chris has assured the manager that he wants to stay and regain his place in the team.
Karl said: “Players always get frustrated when they’re not playing for whatever reason. Chris had several offers in the close season but we’re all delighted that he decided to stay at FC United and I think he’s made the right choice.”
Karl added: “It’s a nightmare getting everyone together for the team photo and several people weren’t able to be there, but there’s nothing sinister about anyone who’s missing.”
So this is a one-off rumour squashing news item, otherwise we’ll never get anything else done.
Reports are suggesting that Chris Baguley isn’t off to Leigh, or anyone else, after all. In an interview with FCUM.tv that’s due to go online tomorrow, Margy is said to explain exactly what is going on.
And the thoroughly whet your appetite, here’s a clip of a Baguley special, against (I think) Wakefield.
Chris Baguley has left FC United and joined Leigh Genesis.
