    I'll be gutted if that's the last we see of Baldock. I was recently reminded on twitter of his absolute golazo against QPR which contained as much skill, speed and sheer tekkers as any other goal scored last year. I genuinely think he's easily good enough for the Premier League.

      No one knows. If Baldock was truly ready then he would of got on at Chelsea when 2 down.

      Total mystery.

      Cant rely on him unfortunately , even if he gets back in the team the next thing is just round the corner.

      Its harsh but need to get rid and replace with much better quality
      So he's been a long serving member of the club and his goals helped us get promoted. He was injured in the summer, signed a new contract, got himself fit again after several months, scored in the u23s as part of his comeback, been on the bench multiple times in last few weeks.
      Yet unfortunately for SB, Hughton has a fully fit squad , doesn't like to play 4-4-2 this season, hasn't suffered from any injuries / suspensions and thus has relied on Hemed/Murray as his two striking options in games. and/or Kayal to replace Gross as the no.10.

      He said this about Baldock about his limited appearances on Dec 23.
      "At the moment it's almost as difficult to pick the subs as the team.
      "That's because we have got a lot of bodies fit and available and that's the way you would want it. So it's purely tactical."

      yet the answer inexplicably is - "we can't rely on him" (really ?) or "he's not ready" (Hughton picks players on the bench who aren't ready ??) or "get rid" (because he'll be replaced by er, whom ?) or even more wild, speculative guesses (we all love a wild rumour don't we) but the answer can't be the most obvious one. - Hughton's tactics.

      Has anybody at the CH press conferences actually tried ASKING him what the score is with selecting Baldock for the bench then never playing him?

      People have these impressions in their heads and they just cannot shake them...

      Against Huddersfield he made a sub at HT, one at 63, one at 73.

      Spurs, 62, 72, 78.

      Liverpool double sub at 70, last at 77.

      Burnley 63, 75, 83

      Newcastle 62

      I could go on but I can't be arsed.


      Granted but all like for like ie replace March or Knockaert with Iziquierdo Hemd for Murray Brown for Gross etc no variation to change the tactics or approach to the game to try to win it. Not saying it would work bu he could try Kayal in and push Propper further forward for Gross for the last 20 mins or keep a wide man on and push Iziquierdo up alongside the main striker.ina 4-4-2 set up. When chasing a goal at least try something.

      More to the point why did CH wait for an injury before making any subs when Bournemouth already had three subs on and half our team looked absolutely knackered?
      If ever you find the answer to that, please let the rest of us know!

      we will see what impact he has this season but for me. No sentiment in football. Better / more reliable quality needed

      ....it will be interesting won’t it...if we sign this ‘elusive’ striker..will SB go (on loan?) ....or will we terminate Browns loan deal early (I take it that’s possible)....either way the way things are SB’s involvement seems limited
