Chris Baird is a midfielder and defender formerly of Fulham. He was originally with the Whites for 6 years after a move in 2007 before departing in 2013 on a free transfer to Reading. He had played anywhere across the back four over his time at Craven Cottage, and was occasionally utilised in central midfield as a holding midfielder. He was signed in the summer transfer window of 2007 by Lawrie Sanchez. In and out of the side during his time at the club, Chris had only scored twice in his first 100 league appearances; rather bizarrely both of these came in the space of six minutes away at Stoke City. These two stunning goals earned the uncharacteristic nickname of "Bairdinho" amongst the Fulham faithful. Two back-to-back goals in the league with uncanny similarity in the 2012-13 season followed to take his tally up to 4. He was amongst several players released in summer 2013, but returned to the club for a second short spell on loan from Derby County at the tail end of 2015-16.
