Leighton Baines. he seems like a decent bloke, doesn’t he? He’s an excellent left back, he looks pretty cool, he seems nice in interviews and he applauds the fans when he goes to take a corner. Oh, and he’s taken a guitar to Brazil with him. Full marks all round then, and that’s why here at From the Rookery End, we’re fully behind the “Love Leighton” campaign being run by our friends over at XFM. Our very own Mike will be sporting one of the t-shirts (modelled by reverend and the Makers above) in Sao Paulo, as we look to spread the Love Leighton word so keep your eyes peeled at the England games this summer and let us know if you spot him or one of the t-shirts (surely set to be the must have fashion accessory of the summer) in Brazil.
On a more serious note, Leighton Baines is the subject of Mike’s latest piece for Goal.com (no longer online – sorry!) Let us know what you think!
