Who has been scoring all our pre season goals? That would be Baldock. Who has most scope for improvement amongst our clutch of strikers? That would be Baldock. Who is the most lightweight physically? That, of course, would be Baldock too.
Allardyce, as we know, operates on the basis of "If you're big enough, you're good enough" and given his determination to play 4-5-1 / 4-3-3, there was never going to be a berth for a little striker to lead the line. The big question is, why on earth Allardyce ever signed him in the first place?
No complaints from me about selling him. There's not exactly a queue of clubs in for him, suggesting he is not "all that" and we have too many strikers already, even before we sign Carroll, or Tevez or who ever else the spin machine nominates this week!
