Baros is up for the fight
Milan Baros - who I think linked up pretty well with Jermain Defoe considering they had only trained together once prior to the game at the weekend - is continuing to say the right things.
Baros knows that with Defoe, Dave Nugent - when fit, Kanu and Utaka for competition it will not be easy for him to be a regular starter, but whilst he admits that he does not expect to start every game he is not here to sit on the bench either so he is prepared to fight for his place as he told pravo, which I assume is a Czech paper: 'I have played just two games. I know all my new teammates but we are not attuned so far. That will come soon.
'We are not at our full strength yet - players are still at the Africa Cup of Nations.
'Competition will be large, but they have not bought me to make me sit on the bench. I have never been afraid of competition.
'I know it will not be easy. I don't expect to play in every single game'.
As said Baros continues to say the right things, and as also said I think that his partnership with Defoe looked promising enough at the weekend - yep it needs more work but that will come the more they train, and play together.
Harry Redknapp has plenty of options at his disposal, so this is a headache for him, but what a fantastic headache to have eh fellas! What fantastic striking options we have, when for so long we were very limited...
