I was interested to read earlier on the Official West Ham website that Martin Allen likens Baldock to Tony Cottee.
Goodness knows how long we have needed a goal scorer for, I thought it would have been Demba Ba but he was on his toes as soon as we got relegated.
Allen though is looking forward to seeing Sam Baldock make a name for himself at West Ham United.
The former Hammers midfielder had the young striker at MK Dons and believed then that he had the ability to go far in the game. Allen, now managing at Notts County, told West Ham TV that Baldock, 22, was reminiscent of a former West Ham United favourite.
“He is cool, calm and a finisher. He is Cottee-like. He is not always involved at the other end of the field but he is razor sharp. He comes alive around the box and he can finish.”
Sounds promising, but only time will tell but I am optimistic over the little guy!
