Is it okay to like Lee Bowyer now?

I’m not the man I used to be

Confession: I’m warming to Lee Bowyer. Don’t tell anyone though.

Is there something wrong with me? Bowyer used to be the personification of the worst kind of footballer – thuggish, mouthy, snarling etc.

But he appears to have cleaned up his act and turned into the sort of hard-working, head-down footballer every fan should want his team. Hell, I might even put him in my fantasy team – then he’d suddenly stop scoring, of course; those are the rules.

I think I need a lie down.
