Good luck to him, although for many it may well seem like an underwhelming appointment and the cheap option.

Whatever the thinking, he must have impressed to beat out 30 other candidates! Tough job though. Ordinarily it would be nice to have a five game bedding in period to get used to the job, demands of managing at a higher level and to enable the new faces he'll almost certainly bring in to settle too.

In this case, with only 11 games to go, Boro' need points and need them now, not in a few games time. Its also unfortunate that Harrow have played five games more than Witham Town who are currently just outside the drop zone.

It would be some monumental effort if he were to drag Harrow to safety, but stranger things have happened. Can't help but think that Dave Anderson had some input re. Baker as he worked as a coach under Anderson at St Albans (2007-08).

Its a left-field appointment for sure, but sometimes these sorts of appointments work better than a big name. Harrow have gone for someone who may give them long term stability, and should the dreaded relegation come, someone who has experience of the lower level.

Its easy to forget that this'll be just Harrow's third manager in the last 11 and a half years, and fourth in the last 15. In non-league terms thats exceptional.

Hopefully for Harrow's sake Baker is the right appointment and can galvanize the team, regroup and get the necessary points to secure another year at Premier Division level.
