Am I alone in finding this a bit crass?
disregard, ban request, etc
Might try it on Thursday given our defence is likely to include Aleks Kolarov, Stefan Savic and Kolo Toure.
To answer your question, no, i don't think it's crass.
...but actual blind people probably couldn't give two twelfths of a shit about.
It's more daft than crass. Total blindness (as in the inability to see ANYTHING through either eye) afflicts such a small proportion of blind people to make it all a bit insignificant. He'd be better off wearing glasses that give him partial vision (20% or something).
It made me think about something I hadn't considered before, it probably would have been nice to hear more experiences from an actually blind football fan, but I don't think it's a bad piece.
and I'd much rather read someone talk about being a blind football fan rather than a guy playing make believe for the day.
about how partially-sighted/blind folk are catered for at the Emirates. It was pretty good.
