Sam Baldock: Has his bosses backing

The Robins captain has netted three times in four games playing wide on the right, a change from their top scorer's usual central role.

"He's done well, because he can run," he told the Bristol Evening Post. "You have to be able to run in this game and that is what Sam does.

"I looked up at the clock during the Gillingham game and, although it only said nine minutes, Sam Baldock had had more chances in that wide right position than when he came inside.

"When you play down the middle, it is hard to find any space in there. I know it is natural for him, but he has probably scored more goals for me playing wide right or wide left than he has playing centre forward.

"The best way to keep a striker happy is for him to keep scoring. And the best way for him to keep the manager happy is to keep playing wide and to keep scoring."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
