Alan Pardew – Demba Ba Is Going Nowhere


It seem that Newcastle manager Alan Pardew is not concerned about Demba Ba’s contract situation.

Demba Ba – not leaving Newcastle

The Senegal striker is said to have a release clause of around £7M in his contract, and we were hoping that will be renegotiated  before the summer, and that clause is removed.

Alan Pardew doesn’t mention anything about changing the 26 year-old’s contract, although he seems to have no worries and says that Ba wants to stay at Newcastle, where he seems to love playing his football.

Pardew also believes Newcastle qualifying for Europe next season will help the matter, and he had this to say about Ba:

“I don’t think that’s something to worry about too much because Demba has made it pretty clear that he loves the football club here,”

“He has got a great rapport with the fans – they love him to bits, and we are hoping that’s going to be a big enough pull for him to stay and prolong his career here.”

“I think it’s important for Demba that we get European football. When you get to this level, that’s what you are going to find, players want to play in Europe.”

We’d love for Newcastle to renegotiate his contract and then casually announce that the Senegal man has signed a new deal at the club.

And it seems from what Derek LLambias was saying yesterday, that contracts these days at the club are fairly simple and straightforward,  and don’t have any incentives in there for scoring goals.

Derek makes the point that when Mike Ashley arrived on Tyneside , Oba Martins had a clause in there for the goals he scored, and that’s why Derek says that Ashley noticed he kept shooting from the half way line. 😀

Demba Ba has done much better than Oba Martins ever did at Newcastle – and that’s because he’s a much better striker, and we want to keep him on Tyneside.

    Demba ba needs a new deal not because of this so called buy out clause but because he deserves it

    Reckon we should offer him a new deal, keep him for a couple of years and then just when his knees about to end his career, sell him to the scousers for £20m

    Not so worried about him going at all really. It would be quite a coup for MA though if they did announce a new contract, also think that would attract players to the club come summer. Lol about the martins thing it makes sense now when you think back!

    Aha! MA is a Chelski supporter, i wonder what he did when we lost to Chelski earlier in the season 😛

    On DL and MA, i think it’s a case of taking the bad with the good. The medal has a backside to it, which we’ll just have to swallow.
    Personally, i wouldn’t swap MA atm, i don’t belive the grass is always greener on the other side.
    I hope he stays for a few years yet and helps us get the success we all so badly want.

    Wanna bet?
    Here’s DLs quote: “Mike is a Chelsea supporter. Everyone thinks he is a Tottenham supporter, by the way, and that upsets him.”

    Our club is on the up but we will only improve if the next window is a big one.

    Not only we need additions to the first team and cover for the squad, we also need a few replacements for the obvious outgoings! I pray it will be an action packed summer and that euro 2012 distracts everyone and then boom, we sign a load of quality players who are not playing in the tournament!

    If we keep hold of Ba it would be immense.

    How funny though the thought that if West Ham don’t get promoted and QPR go down Nolan and Barton will be together in the championship.

    Also regarding our other former players I have a real feeling that Enrique will be off to barca this summer and big pony tail ponce will be off to Stoke. Going to slap a tenner on.

    Dannyo….Not sure i could bring myself to purchase one of those. Although we could print “MA Geordie @ Heart” on the back. Maybe instead of a number get a big £ on it?

    Starting to look like an expensive gift…maybe send over some food. An M&S hamper or something

    Its vital we keep ba so he can forge a partnership with cisse over the next few years, I think tiote is the only player we cud lose but he loves it here n if we do get Europe I don’t think we will lose anyone

    as much as AP says demba loves his football here, demba has always said that he is here untill the end of the season . in that case – reading between the lines – is he gone at the end of it or not ?????????

    If Pardew says Ba is going nowhere why is he almost putting Tiote in the shop window in other statements today?
    He says if a top club comes in and offers big money for him it is difficult to refuse. Why?
    Spurs did it with Modric and Manure with Rooney.
    Or are they the REAL big clubs who reckon their star players are more important to them on the field than on the income side of a balance sheet?
    Yes Pardew we CAN say no. If the player doesn’t want to leave (as in Tiote’s recent remarks) it is easy.
    Just say NO. Try it – it’s not difficult.

    This guy is the best there is. Hope the Cisse partnership works out, not too sure yet… Frankly preferred the Best – Ba duo but we still haven’t seen enough of these two together and they may well become the deadliest force in the league. Regarding Monday’s game, we MUST play 5 in MF, possibly Ba can play that role as he’s a willing runner. That may mean fewer goal chances of course. PS. I fear this game more than any other.

    @18 they did say no, they said no to 25m and 30m for Carroll and look how that ones worked out for us! If someones willing to pay way over the odds for a player then why would you say no? Or would you rather have an Andy Carroll than a Papiss Cisse and Demba Ba?
    When you arent playing European football its pretty hard to turn down that kind of money or you end up doing a Rangers
    A couple of years ago I would have been worried, but now I have full faith our scouting team would find a worthy replacement, probably for a fraction of the cost

    Its not as simple as that mate, and its not Pardews decision anyway. Its up to MA if we sell Pardew has to deal with it.

    I am not so worried bout BA but Tiote I fear will be the one. He has said he does not like london in the past, if He goes anywhere i think it would be Manchester.

    I really hope not like

    I keep looking at Udinese, operate with a turnover year on year now and have had champions league football the last couple of years, it was that business model that got them there and they are sitting in 4th again

    U have to face facts it’s not just about the club the players may actually want leave n if we don’t get Europe n some other team can offer it they could want to go, n don’t act like this is something new we’ve always sold our best players

    Catch 22 question, which would u rather see go, Ba or Tiote, if there was no choice? For me, Tiote would shade it.

    Cyprus if I have said it once I have said it a thousand times, you talk absolute gubbins!

    Ba and Cisse have played with each other in the team for what? 3 and a half games? Cisse has not yet had a settling in period which Ba did over the summer. Both were probably exhausted mentally and physically after the acon and Cisse wasn’t fully fit against the Mackems.

    Yet you say you are ‘unsure’ about the partnership and that you prefer best and Ba. Ha ha ha

    What a goon you must be. That’s like saying you prefer perch and Colo because we have conceded more with willo in the team!

    You, Jayphoto and Dannyo are the epitomy of short sighted nonsense spouting, band wagon jumping, arm chair supporting posters on this blog.

    @Cyprus

    NO way mte Tiote would be the one id keep, our midfield looks so much stronger with him in the team, Although id rather not lose Ba. haha

    Llambias hs talked alot of sense today to be fair. He makes a point on Arsenal.

    Nasri to City…Even a club like Asenal cant hold off the ”big bids”

    To be fair if we are offered silly money 20mil plus for anyone id take it everytime provided we re spend a chnk of it.

    It makes perfect sense

    Agreed the Undinese model is remarkebly similar to ours.

    If we sold Ba for say 10mil and we went and got a good replacement, or tiote for say 20mil and we went and bought again. yeah its disspointing in the short term but we have to trust the system its worked so far.

    But hey its all heresay at th moment anyway 😉

    wyn @18 the fact is ash wants rid of tiote end of season. he is inviting clubs to come in and make an offer for our stars Why dont man – u say if a top club made an offer for rooney it would be difficult to refuse or spurs with bale -or barca with messi – or liverpool with suarez – it won happen coz these clubs like to keep their star men coz they are theguys who will win them cups and titles . we get rid to make a few bob for ash.

    Stu 9….History would show that if a good offer comes in they may well accept it and then later replace with a cheaper, younger prospect. Not ideal as it’s hard to imagine this policy taking us any further than we are now. However, if you look at it within the idea that is is part of a 5 year plan, i.e. selling a major player for major money once a year and then replacing a few players in the squad with better quality therefore overall improving the squad, is it the worst idea?

    I would “hope” in a few years time, when we’re in a healthy position financially, constantly qualifying for Europe and playing good attractive football we would no longer need to sell anyone. Although, at what point do we sell our stars? We don’t want them all aging at the club on high wages until the end of their careers, there needs to be a balance….apologies for rambling

    ibiza@32 ash has already been in charge nearly 5 years now . Its about time we wad a settled squad that didnt have to be tinkered with except a couple of backups.how long will it be before we can challenge for anyrhing if he carries out his intention of selling our stars . it has to end some time if or when we get into europe.if we are to be ambitious it has to stop.
