Demba Ba seems very pleased to be at Newcastle United.
Demba Ba – looks good in black and white
And Ba is already looking forward to what Newcastle can achieve in the future, and he believes the Tyneside club are building a new side, and there are good things ahead.
We have to hope he’s right of course, but we’d love to see more players being brought in this summer, since the squad will remain too small for next season.
This is what the big Senegal striker told the Newcastle press corps today from Orlando:
“Before I came I had heard good things about Newcastle. The club are going the right direction. I am just looking forward to playing my part in that.”
“At the moment we are just focusing on the games in the US.” “It is a very good club and everything is place so it all bodes well.”
“I think the team can achieve good things – really good things. We want to be looking up the table rather than behind us.”
“Yet it is all about getting the preparation right.” “We aren’t just looking at the Arsenal game but the whole season and what we can achieve.”
“We have to be ready from now. These games are about preparation and the next step of that is against Orlando. It will be another good workout for us.”
When Demba Ba returned from vacation earlier this summer, his agent told him that Newcastle United were very keen on him, and he said – let’s do a deal.
So the French-born player was immediately attracted to Newcastle, and he knew quite a bit about Newcastle, even before the club came after him.
Newcastle fans may be too much into doom and gloom, when things go wrong with the team, but make no mistake about it the good news is that Newcastle have a very good name throughout the world of football.
We’re just hoping the lads can get back into the upper echelons of the Premier League, and can do that just as soon as possible.
