Paul McShane will never want to change the Wikipedia page that says he plays for Barcelona
He’s finally found a stage befitting of his talent…
When an individual’s Wikipedia page is tampered with – and it’s a fairly common occurrence – normally it is to the detriment of the person involved, usually to poke fun at them or to criticise them for something that happened in recent history.
If Paul McShane had his way, he’d probably never change the Republic of Ireland national football team page on Wikipedia as it exists at the time of writing, as it lists his club as Barcelona and not Hull City as most people would assume.
Some people forget that McShane started out with Manchester United so the prospect of him moving to Barcelona wouldn’t have seemed so outlandish when he was a young lad, but we can’t see him troubling Dani Alves for the right back spot anytime soon.
Fictitiously or not, it still looks nice to have your name associated with Barcelona all the same and because the page will be corrected sooner rather than later, Paul can always look back at the screen grab above and dream about what might have been.
