Ex-England boss’ directional sense on par with his tactics

During last night’s Uefa Cup tie between Hamburg and Aston Villa, Craig Gardner fired a decent chance to get Villa back in the game over the crossbar. Here’s what Five co-commentator Graham Taylor had to say on the matter:

“Yes, it’s only just over the bar, but over the bar is wide, isn’t it?”

We know that “isn’t it?” was supposed to be rhetorical, Graham, but no actually over the bar isn’t wide.
