This signing will please whoever it was that demanded we sign somebody with a beard.

BBC report it as being our 5th signing after finishing 10th in division 1 last season.

Baldwin has had a pretty decent career but the comments on the division 1 forum from Bristol Rovers fans and those from Ross County aren't very positive. I suppose we can forgive for playing for Posh, he was younger then and knew not what he was doing.

Ash Taylor type reviews?
These signings can go either way, fingers crossed the positive way in Baldwin's case.

I watch a fair bit of Scottish football on the tv and have watched him quite a few times.
He wears his heart on his sleeve, puts his self on the line and is an old fashioned defender , not quick but not placeless, has a long throw and kicks it in the stand rather than piss about on the ball if under pressure.
A no nonsense defender in the monthe style but classier.

A good signing imo
Sometimes you just need someone who can get rid if required too and he will fit right in if we get a target man who he can launch it up to if needed.

He could well become a cult hero as long as people aren’t expecting saliba or van dyke.
A bit like rod mcdonald in his style of play

I think the last player we signed from Ross County was John Buchanan, that was when they were still in the Highland League. What a player he was, probably my favourite Cobbler ever.

I hope he's back-up. To think we paid money for him

Why do people always jump to conclusions before they even see someone play  Angry

I'll put it out there Jack Baldwin in a very good signing. He can play all across the back-line and in midfield.

If Brady is happy to pay a fee for someone, he's earned our trust & support, to get behind him

What is the point of slagging someone off whom you probably never even seen...

Get behind em ffs!

Whoever we sign, this season is going to be a real battle, so we need everyone on board.

Exactly why are we all so obsessed with what other fans say about a player that has left there club... Remember Pompey fans telling us how bad Ricky Holmes was ??

Our lots track record in recruitment earns them the benefit of the doubt, they’re not wrong that often.

If you play Baldwin in midfield, you must have serious issues.

Few comments above that ring true, a fairly limited defender who throws himself into every challenge (in his first season I think he received a booking in one in two games). His long throws tended to lead to nothing, but caused some excitement nonetheless.

However the bloke is a stand up fella, who has done numerous things off the field that see's him fought of fondly.

Somewhat surprised to see him go, but with us signing the lad Wright from Stockport, this will be covering that outlay.

Good luck for the season ahead!

I didn't say he would play in midfield but could cover if needed. There again his Wiki could be wrong where it states he can play there, or has played there earlier in his career.

Good luck to you also for the coming season.

Never knew Ross County and the Stags were related. Clearly are. Thanks for your information.

I thought last season the game plan was to piss about on the ball rather than just leather it.

The Staggies, club crest has the Stags head which was the regimental badge of the Seaforth Highlanders.

Yeah, not sure where they got that information from but very much a CB who enjoys kicking the ball long as much as his opponent.

Marvellous! And I mean that most sincerely. We've been missing a hard case to put the wind up opposing strikers, so this sounds like a very good option to add to the squad.

Should be ok for us, the majority of Scottish Premiership teams are no better than League One standard, so should be able to compete at this level without to many problems.

That's amazing Zen I was in Crfu Airport yesterday as well. Wasn't me you were talking to though because I wasn't wearing a Cobblers top and I never speak to anyone unless I absolutely have to. Hope you had a nice time on hols.

I think I’d have recognised you Bhyll. 🇺🇾🍺🌞
