I love that he has a short memory. In recent matches he's giving up an embarrassing own goal, an awful penalty, and throws caution to the wind when defending. He took a powerful strike from Jones right off the head, and came back just as strong.

Nothing seems to break this kid. He picks up a knock evey match and he still comes back battling. He is still a bit raw but he has improved as much as, if not more than any other player this year. I think he's got a bright future in the center out Villa's defense.

agree wholeheartedly----every game it seems this lad gets a smack ---he aint afraid to put his head where it hurts-- one of the old breed of centre halves--that challenge at knee level against Samba was unbelievable had me wincing!!-- and that block yesterday,-- bet his cheek is sore this morning-reckon with lambo,s guidance he,s going to be immense for us,----definately a Shaun Teale in the making,---

he,s only young and will learn from his mistakes, defenders are prone to dive in --i know i used to believing the blinking ball could be won!!

i must confess ive really like this lad----ever since i seen him tear down the wing and bang over an inch -perfect cross for Fonzie to score against Brighon i think a few years ago,

I've seen plenty of ability and bravery from him this season, being a few errors as well but all defenders make them and he really has being thrown in at the deep end.

Already a decent player and he will only get better.

Great News!!!! Deserved too. I hope to see him as a permanent fixture in the Villa defense. He and Lowton were the most consistent players for our defense this season Baker is the type of gritty defender we need.

I like him - not quite there yet - but not to far off and he's got potential to become one of the best defenders in the EPL

But i love his attitude real grit and determination. He'll put his head were others wouldnt put their boot.

Everyone remembers Baker from couple of major mistakes and own goals this season, but, he has developed greatly and hopefully still does. Determined player who gives 100% from first to the last minute, I like his attitude, this was great news, too.

Yes, except for the fact that you originally referred to him as Jonathan Hogg. Still remember you posting that. All excited about the next big player for Villa, referring to him as a big powerful central defender.......Jonathan Hogg. LOL.

You threw a few of us for a loop confusing a small undersized defensive midfielder with Baker. Shame on you. But we all know........blame it on Stella.
