Looks like Wes Baynes has had the most predictable rethink since Rafa Benitez decided Robbie Keane isn't the second coming (although as that happened yesterday I guess it isn't the best example!)
We need Baynes: he offers depth at right back, the area of our squad which is looking most threadbare at the moment, and his quality from set pieces is invaluable.
However, he needs us more: he could develop into a quality player, but he's not there yet, and both playing regularly and working under a quality coach aid development, as Nathan Fairhurst, Angelos Tsiaklis and Jon Brown will attest.
Reading between the lines of Dean Saunders' comments, the obvious conclusion that Baynes had been badly advised seems to be accurate. Now he has a chance to be his own man, and develop into the man he ought to be. It's the decision which will ultimately benefit both sides most.
