Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has no worries about his Senegal striker, Demba Ba, who hasn’t scored for all of three games.
Demba Ba – in action in 3-0 win over Man United
Of course he has gone close a few times and missed a penalty during that time, and even at Norwich it took a brilliant save from Norwich goalkeeper John Ruddy in the first half, to deny the 26 year-old his 17th goal of the season.
Another way to put it is the Senegal striker has scored just one goal in the six games, since returning from the African Cup of Nations, where he also failed to notch any goals for Senegal.
Alan Pardw isn’t worried at all about his striker, because he sees a confident Demba Ba in training:
“If he showed any signs of lacking confidence then I would be concerned, but I don’t see that in Demba,”
“Especially in training, he just focuses his mind more to improve himself.” “So I have no worries about that.”
Demba Ba is a great professional, and it must be good for him to have his Senegal striker partner – Papiss Cisse – at the same club, and both lads seem very happy on Tyneside.
And of course we aren’t worried about Ba one little bit, because we know he now has a full supply of the elixir that allows him to score so many goals – that secret syrup – it’s strawberry syrup to those in the know.
And we also have been told that Newcastle owner Mike Ashley recently spared no expense to ensure an adequate supply of the syrup, for Newcastle’s brilliant free agent from West Ham.
It’s serious stuff, this supply of strawberry syrup.
We’d be surprised if the big man doesn’t get a goal at West Brom on Sunday afternoon – very surprised.
Howay The Lads!!
