Surely Baptiste in for Knightmare.

C'mon Dougie.

Those stats do support theories that Knight is often ineffective.


However, Baptiste (5'11") has, for the most part, been marking midgets who aren't there to head the ball - there's nothing to suggest those stats would have been the same if he'd been up against, say, Halford (6'4"), Blackman (6'2") and Vokes (6'2") instead of the 5'6" fellas he's been marking. Granted, it's not quite so black and white.


For the record I think it's Knight that needs to make way. He doesn't win nearly enough (his record at the other end bears that out), his positioning is often poor and he all too often looks like he's never heard of a ball, let alone had one at his feet.


And, yes, I know, he's not the only problem.
