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!
