Baldock, I am not afraid to say quickly became my favourite player when he arrived last summer, and so to hear the possibility that his departure could be a permanent I was shocked to hear that
this may be the case.

The West Ham number 7 quickly became a fans favourite for his will to run in the channels and his tireless effort for the Hammers cause. Add to that the vital goals he scored last season and it would be a real shame to lose him after just one season at the club, especially the thought when we signed him, he would be one for the future and with his huge potential it would be silly to let another team benefit from that just to cash in.
Who will forget Baldock’s second goal against Leicester City where the ball failed to touch the ground from a goal kick where he volleyed home. He was always the man everyone wanted on the field when things weren’t going right, the cheers when he stepped onto the field show that.
Yes I admit a season out on loan, to further educate his footballing mind, which is already strong and to get his goal scoring mentality back, would be a good idea. But with ideas of selling him, I would be firmly against. Baldock is the closest we’ve got to a Cottee like forward, a fox in the box player. He is the kind of player who you just trust to score in the box, and a run in the team I would have thought he would have scored a lot more than he did.

When a fee was agreed for Wilfried Zaha, with Baldock going to other way on loan, I was excited with that deal; Baldock would get experience and confidence banging goals in for the Eagles. Then
come back to the Hammers full of confidence and get his Premier League experience underway full to the brim with confidence.
So Mr Allardyce, do the right thing by West Ham, don’t let his talent leave us, he has many admirers at the Boleyn, I watch from behind the goal in the Bobby Moore end before the game, and it is so clear that he is one of the best finishers at the club, if not the best. So by all means loan him out, but don’t sell him it would be one of the biggest mistakes West Ham could ever make.
Meanwhile, it is widely expected the Hammers will complete the signings of Kieran Richardson and George McCartney in the near future, following the impending arrival of Jussi Jääskeläinen as well as youngster Nathan Mabi-Mavila who will join from Wycombe Wanderers after tweeting he has signed for the club.
Come on you Irons!
