Times journalist takes 'first person' risk

I plucked this quote from an article about Manchester United's top 50 players in The Times Online late last night:
"One of the rules of writing for The Times is that you avoid referring to yourself in the first person unless you have been on the newspaper for about 20 years, but, for once, I'm going to let my hair down."
You could see why the confessional nature of (some) blogging might not fit with The Times' institutional culure can't you?

I hope the author, Kaveh Solhekol, got away with it.

(More fuel for Rod Liddle's raging fire)
