Would this work or are they past it now ?
"Errrrr lads I'm getting the crew back together for one last job"
Relegation to non league?
They aren't fast enough to be past anything
Would work well in charity matches alongside other retired ex city players.
Nah, McShufty is past it being injured for most of last season, but Carl Baker I'd have back as an attacking midfielder due to MR's preference of a 4-2-3-1, plus he played 45 times scored 9 last season.
I'd have Baker back. Passion and plenty of ability for league 2. Pace is not so much required as skill down there.
Baker yes, McSheffrey no.
McSheffrey on the bench, a goal scoring substitute, start him in the cup games etc..
Baker - Yes. Sign him up.
I'd take Baker as we need a set piece man.
Ive a feeling Richard Wood could be next.
* edit..Rotherham want to retain Richard Wood.

I'd take Baker. Good squad player to have that can play every spot of the attacking 3 in a 4-2-3-1.
NO! Experience down the middle, youth on the flanks!
Oggy's still here, stick him in goal.
Check yourself son. Oggy has retired
I'd have Baker back no problem. Mcsheffrey is well overdue retirement though.
Baker yes the other one No
Same. I think Baker has still got something to offer. I think McSheffrey was a good player for us before but probably past it now..
Franck Moussa anyone?

Baker would be a 200% improvement on Lameiras mind you even at my age I would be a 20% improvement and probably about as fast
All aboard the ex skyblues train
Choo choo !
Sheffers relied on pace. That is normally the first thing to go. So no thanks. I would be happy enough for Baker to join if he didn't want much. He could still do well in Division 4. But we don't want to end up with too many older players. So not too bothered either way.
No. Whilst I welcome the odd veteran to add some experience and guile, I think it's time we built a team for the long term, players that will form the backbone of the side for a number of years, the way Burton have and the way Swansea did some years ago.
Somebody mentioned to me again this morning that Baker is a genuine possibility.
Not sure where the rumor came from*, but I've now heard it from 2 sources.
*probably from here
Baker is a genuine possibility.
Just to make it 3
doesn't he have another year on his contract at pompy ?
If pompey release baker I could see us going in for him he has unfinished business with us

This would only work if we injected a bit of extra pace into the middle of that midfield by also resigning McAllister and Dennis Wise.
Baker yes, he never had pace, he would fit in nicely. Still fit, has a passion for playing and for our club.
I'd sooner hunt down Andrei Kanchelskis.
yeah i would be happy with baker back. lets see what happens
Is Carl Baker day back if we get him???
