You learn something every day – and some things you learn are more important than others – this is very important.
Demba Ba – with magic strawberry syrup – his elixir for scoring goals
The latest news on the Newcastle web-site is that Newcastle’s star striker Demba Ba just loves strawberry syrup.
Demba Ba has revealed one of his secrets, and it’s that he just loves drinking strawberry syrup, so Newcastle have been busily scouring the continent to get sufficient supplies for the Senegal striker.
After all, anybody who has 16 goals for Newcastle this season gets what he wants, and strawberry syrup has finally been put on the menu at the Newcastle club.
Phew – thank goodness for that.
The story on the web-site is that you add water to the syrup , and the club has had the Teisseire product shipped from the continent on a regular basis now, so we have to expect Demba Ba to start scoring again very shortly.
Maybe he can even get a hat-trick on Sunday at West Brom?.
It’s obviously vital to Newcastle’s strategy to keep our top striker scoring goals, and since Ba hasn’t scored now for three games, we may have to get even more syrup shipped over, and quickly too.
Demba had this to say about his strawberry syrup, which keeps him scoring:
“I love this stuff and I will definitely be buying a few bottles for myself now that I can get it in Newcastle.
“I normally ask my family to bring some over with them whenever they visit, because I drink it every single day. Now our supporters can try it for themselves and hopefully they will like it.”
Stuart Middlemiss is the Head of Retail at Newcastle United, and he has a very important job on his hands, to keep the syrup flowing to Demba Ba.
And the news is that owner Mike Ashley has instructed Stuart to spare no cost in getting those bottles of syrup to Ba, and the request has even increased in importance over the last few weeks, because Ba hasn’t scored for three games now.
It’s not exactly panic at Newcastle, but it’s getting there. 😀
The good news is that Stuart has finally tracked down where to get the fruity syrup, and after having the bottles sent over from the South of France, our Senegalese striker’s favourite is now on sale at the Club Store and in Shearer’s Bar.
And we believe the supplies are now enough for Ba to start scoring again – that’s a huge relief!
This is what Stuart Middlemiss said today on the Newcastle web-site:
“We’ve had a lot of fans getting in touch with us to ask if we knew where they could buy the syrup, so we began the task of finding some.”
“Eventually we managed to get our hands on a limited number of bottles from the manufacturer in France.”
“So now the supporters can come down and see if they like it as much as Demba does. If it goes down well, we’ll try to get hold of more!”
It’s OK fans being able to buy the Teisseire Strawberry Syrup at the Club Store and in Shearer’s Bar now, just as long as there’s enough for Demba Ba.
As we said, this news is more important than some of the other news reports today – much more important in fact.
