Lewis Baker- Could he make it?

Recommended Posts

I think he has the potential to become a great player but why do some people think he is a striker?


When you have torres on your team, who is a player who do not know how to score goals and then comes a player who does he must be a striker.

Any video of his goal?


Unfortunately I could only find this:




Lewis Baker came on as a substitute in MK Dons' 2-1 defeat to Coventry City on Saturday, and he'll have no doubt learned some lessons about the club he has just joined.

1) League One will be a much more physical style of play than Baker is probably used to. He's scored a hatful of goals for the Chelsea U21 side, but he is now playing in a less technical, more physical standard of football, and Baker will probably have to take a hit or two in the next few games he plays in.

2) MK Dons like to play a passing style of football which is more akin to Premier League football, and this style should suit Baker down to the ground.

3) Baker is in a team of passionate players who will voice their opinion if they believe something is wrong, and if he does anything wrong, his teammates will be sure to tell him.

4) MK Dons are big fans of giving youth a chance, so Baker will be fully aware that he has a great opportunity to improve his development, as Dons have worked wonders for the likes of Patrick Bamford and Benik Afobe.

5) Lewis Baker will know that his place in the team isn't guaranteed despite Dele Alli's injury, with Samir Carruthers and Keith Andrews also waiting in the wings to partner Darren Potter in the Dons midfield.


And this match report, which claims he scored a screamer:




Lewis Baker scored a stunning 25-yard goal to give the men from MK1 the lead at half-time, but the Spireites hit back with goals from Gary Roberts and Caolan Lavery either side of a Dean Lewington sending off.

Lewis Baker made his first start in place of Samir Carruthers, while George Williams and Will Grigg came into the starting XI for Carl Baker and Devante Cole.


The official MK Dons site claims to have video highlights of the game but unfortunately you have to register.

Just scored again for MK Dons against Notts County to make it 2-0, apparently assisted by Carl Baker (who scored the first goal) which doesn't make things confusing at all.


I saw on BBC they had two bakers playing for them and that two Bakers had scored! They could at least use initials to help us!

Encouraging words from Karl Robinson:


We're very fortunate to have him playing for us. He excited me every time I see him play. What people don't realise is he's one of the hardest working players I've ever worked with. He works so hard to make the best of his ability. He's got the ability and work ethic to reach the best of his ability.
