Definitely Got Nothing to do with chess III

Oh, man … Gordon Taylor. Or rather, GORDON TAYLOR OBE, as his name appeared in my inbox when he emailed me once. Sensationally dim, wantonly self-interested, wildly over-remunerated and frequently morally compromised, Gordon functions as an auto-satire on all the worst things people think about football. 

Any resemblance to chessers, living or dead, is purely coincidental. Obviously.

For that was Marina Hyde*, writing about the Chief Executive of the Professional Footballers Association. In our game it goes without saying that critiques of prominent figures, no matter how deserved, go without saying.

But has Gordon got his own coat of arms?
