In his press conference yesterday morning Alan Pardew talked about the Demba Ba situation and said that it was unfortunate Ba’s people put out those comments about Alan’s selection of the starting eleven at Goodison Park on Monday night – and as we reported earlier this morning – apologies have now been made to the Newcastle manager.
Alan Pardew – Demba Ba and I are quite intelligent
Demba Ba was left out of the side of course, and the Demba Ba folks didn’t like that and labeled Alan as crazy – but they really should put a lid on those types of comments – which are not professional at all.
Alan talked about the situation and said that both he and Demba Ba handle things intelligently:
“Ba and Cisse will start. Make no mistake about that.” “But we need them back to their best because they haven’t been at their best, either of them, until that second half at Everton when I thought, suddenly, ‘Here we go’.”
“Demba and I are quite intelligent about the way we go about things. He’s an intelligent boy. Things have been said from within his camp, which I think have been unfortunate. We’ve had somewhat of an apology for that as well and we look forward to the game on Sunday.”
“I don’t think Ba deserves to be dropped and I certainly wouldn’t go down that line.” “I think he’s far too intelligent, and I am, to fall into that trap.”
Well it’s just great to know that we have two very intelligent guys in Demba Ba and Alan Pardew at the club – that’s certainly a big relief. 😀
But Demba Ba could yet stay long term at Newcastle,. and it could be based on a number of things – he loves the Newcastle fans and they love him, and Alan Pardew and him seem to have an excellent working relationship and they like each other.
And of course we heard early last week that the club shop has started to sell that Strawberry Syrup again, and we are told there is now an ample supply that has been stockpiled on Tyneside – and that has to be exciting news for Demba Ba – who just loves the stuff.
So there are at least three reasons why Ba could stay long term at Newcastle, and it also helps that both men are extremely intelligent – well at least according to Alan.
And to round off this happy story we hope Demba Ba smashes in three goals this afternoon.
Howay The Lads!!
