Chris Baird will be one of the stars of the Premiership in years to come, mark my words.
I have seen enough of the lad to suggest that perhaps he would perform better at center half but as Sanchez insists on playing him right back, this is the position where he will flourish in a season or two.
Baird a tough, combative defender has become the new scapegoat since Zat Knight left the club and unfairly so in my opinion. Remember he is still relatively young and is new to the Premiership.
Baird has made one or two mistakes this season but still has performed exceptionally.
So instead of bitching about how site you think Baird is, why not back the player and then when he is Fulhams player of the season next year, you can say to your mates down in the pub, ' I told you he would be brilliant...'
And hey, who knows, maybe if he had a bit of decent cover from the right winger he might perform better.
