Pat Baldwin: Guiding the youngsters

The pair, 19 and 21, have made nine appearances between them in the back four alongside the experienced former Southend and Bristol Rovers defender so far this season.

And 30-year-old Baldwin, who is looking to move into coaching in the future, says he likes to talk to the pair throughout matches and believes it helps take the pressure off the homegrown duo.

"You have to try and help them and talk them through it, as a young pro that's what you need," he told Press Association Sport.

"Certainly when I first started out I appreciated it, you can find older pros who are selfish and concentrate on their own game and that is fair enough - but I do like to try and improve them as they improve me.

"It is something I've enjoyed doing as well, especially I am going into the coaching side of things.

"It gives the young lads confidence and takes a little bit of the pressure off to have someone next to them talking to them. I hope it does benefit them."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
