Well it’s official. Sam Baldock has been shipped off to Bristol City. We hate to see the lad go. During the preseason he was banging ‘em in for fun and things were looking up for Baldock. But a small striker was never going to be in Big Sam’s plans. Allardyce has been longing for another big target up front, hence the feverish attempts to sign Andy Caroll on loan. In our opinion the big man we already have, Carlton Cole, is better than Andy who is all around a useless twat. Needless to say we were happy when it all fell through. But Baldock’s departure is a bit of a disappointment in our eyes as his potential seemed to be on the rise. He came in with a flurry of goals and went out with a flurry as well. Odd business. That said Allardyce has been doing good business in this transfer window so we’ll hold back any outrage or condemnation ‘til we see this all play out.
