We’re Happy If The Newcastle Fans Are Happy


Newcastle’s new striker Demba Ba  is certainly starting to make a name for himself on Tyneside.

Demba Ba with the match ball on Wednesday

The Senegal striker has scored an amazing 8 goals for Newcastle in his last 5 games, and in 2011 in the Premier League he has scored 15 goals in just 24 appearances for West Ham and Newcastle – not bad at all.

And the 26 year-old thinks Newcastle can push on against Everton, where he hopes the lads can register yet another win on Saturday.

And the fact Newcastle did not sign a striker worthy of wearing the famous number 9 shirt in the summer, is  now a mute point,  because we did, and Demba Ba is more than deserving of that famous shirt.

Ba told the local press today:

““We won’t change the ethics of the team.” It’s about hard work and getting results.” “Giving everything for our fans will drive us on.”

“We are already looking forward to Everton now and this is a game we feel we can win, especially at home.”

“It’s going to be tough.” “The fans have stuck with us all the way through.” “If we keep up there,  then they are happy and we’re happy.”

“The team can give more. Everybody is just focused on beating Everton in the next game.”

If Newcastle can get anything at all out of the game against Everton, they will remain in 3rd place in the Premier League over the International break, and  that would be great.

A win on Saturday would be fantastic!

    Ed, man! It’s not a “mute” point, it’s a “MOOT” point!! Mute = silent; moot = debatable (as in the Moot Hall in the Toon).

    Indian Magpie (7) –

    i could say the same about Foluwashola mate. i would have thought shola would be more name-ish but i suppose its where ya born and what parents you have.

    toonarmy1986 (5) –

    Everton’s away form is hit or miss. 2 wins and 2 loses with 5 goals scored and 6 conceded. As long as the lads focus and don’t think about the international break or the upcoming Manchester games we should be fine, especially with the crowd at our back. Anything is possible at St. James’ this year, and I really feel we should win this game. We’re in great form and we’re at home. Granted it’s a shorter week, but our fitness has never been a problem.

    Well, they are far from Benzema. Honestly, don’t sure these two lads are a good idea.

    Sure, if Ba get injured, it’s a totaly different story.

    I’m really sure we won’t sign Sow. Maiga is different, because we know there is actually interest on our part.

    Have faith in our scouts. Mike Ashley is not going to pay out 7-10 million on anyone that Carr & Pardew aren’t 100% convinced by.

    I cannot see us conceding against a pretty toothless Everton side, especially if Cahill misses out, as reported.

    Our best solution to score would be through the middle, or down the left side – Guti. Obertan will have little chance to skip past Baines. 2-0 Toon victory and the spuds to drop at least a point away to Fulham

    Howay the lads!

    Jakesome, her is a translation of Brabot’s quotes

    “Si je peux me permettre,Aboubakar 19 ans,est aussi fort
    (potentiellement) que Sow ou Maiga .
    Il joue a Valencienne ,et ma fait une tres grosse impression lors du match VA,LILLE .”

    If I’m allowed to, Aboubakar at 19 is equally (potentially) as strong as Sow and Maiga. He plays for Valenciennes (French Ligue 1) and has impressed me while playing against Lille.

    T’inquiètes Brabot, Jeanne n’est pas morte sur le bucher pour qu’on laisse une bande d’anglais nous dire quelle langue on doit parler!

    Ahah!

    BOn par contre, ils sont chez eux, donc, faut quand même faire un effort. Je te rassure, mon anglais n’est pas fameux non plus.

    Pour être franc pas beaucoup suivi VA, en dehors de Pujol (qu’est plus tout jeune), je vois pas trop de gros potentiels pour la PL, mais bon…
