Sam Baldock

Squad Number: 7
Position: Striker
Born: 15th Mar 1989 (Bedford)
Signed: 26th Aug 2011 (£2,000,000)
Contract: 4 years + 1 year option
Previous Club: MK Dons

KUMB Awards: None.

'Little Sam' was signed by 'Big Sam' from League One MK Dons on the back of a tremendous start to the 2011/12 campaign, in which he scored six goals in his club's opening six games of the season including a hat-trick against Chesterfield, a match watched by Allardyce.

The first ever player to come through MK Dons' youth system, Baldock looked like joining Peterborough in a £1.2million switch earlier in the summer after the fee was accepted. However he rejected the move in order to remain at Stadium:MK.

But just a matter of weeks later he was snapped up by Sam Allardyce, who paid £2million + clauses to land the youngster despite interest from fellow Championship clubs Southampton and Reading.

2011/12 Match Notes & Ratings

2-1 v Hull City (h) 28th April 2012
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Cole, 52)
Apart from nearly catching out the Ďkeeper he failed to get into the match.

2-4 v Reading (h) 31st March 2012
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Taylor)
Ran around a lot to little effect.

1-1 v Doncaster Rovers (h) 10th March 2012
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Vaz Te, 25)
Looked like a fish out of water playing deep and didnít get close enough to Cole late on.

1-1 v Doncaster Rovers (h) 10th March 2012
by Daniel Prescott

(Replaced Vaz Te, 25)
Came on for the injured Vaz Te and was another played forced into an unfavourable position.

1-1 v Watford (h) 7th March 2012
by Daniel Prescott

(Replaced Maynard, 62)
Much the same as Maynard, although he at least looked a little livelier. Squandered the one good chance he had when put through by fellow sub Vaz Te.

0-0 v Crystal Palace (h) 25th February 2012
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Maynard, 73)
Added much-needed movement and pace to the attack and on another day might have had a couple.

2-1 v Nottingham Forest (h) 21st January 2012
by James May

Put in a tireless shift but received very little service from the midfield. Had one good chance well saved and had to play out of position on the left in the second half, which doesnít suit his game.

1-2 v Derby County (a) 31st December 2011
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Faubert, 68) No impression on the match. Another who looked rusty.

3-1 v Derby County (h) 26th November 2011
by Gordon Thrower

Was looking good until his untimely injury. Fingers crossed itís not too serious.

2-1 v Coventry City (a) 19th November 2011
by Gordon Thrower

Not in the game much in the first half which, either by instruction or on his own initiative, he spent playing almost alongside McCartney. Improved a bit when playing up front.

2-0 v Hull City (a) 5th November 2011
by Gordon Thrower

Took the goal well but one instance in the second half where he chased back fully 70 yards to hold up a break until McCartney got back to clear summed up his game today.

4-0 v Blackpool (h) 15th October 2011
by Gordon Thrower

Man of the match. Not just for his goals, well-taken though they were, but also for his general workrate. Did a lot of off the ball running and we noted him making a couple of good tackles on the edge of our box.

2-2 v Crystal Palace (a) 1st October 2011
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Cole, 68) Just beginning to find his feet at this level. Some lively runs as we played a little more to his strengths in the last quarter of the game than we have seen in other matches since his arrival.

0-1 v Ipswich Town (h) 27th September 2011
by Gordon Thrower

When he was supposed to be up front he failed to get close enough to profit from those balls that Cole won on the air. When moved back into midfield he disappeared completely.
