Fieldy: Well according to Chris Sutton, Nathan Baker is tailor made to fill that role if he keeps developing as he has done. Speaking to the Lincolnshire Echo (required reading in this house) former Villan Sutton praised Baker to the hilt and compared him to a 'young John Terry.'

The ever excellent Steve Wade: Anxiety to the power of ten.

Thought for the day (from mock the week!): all the victims were deaf, dumb and blind, these were senseless killings!
