We Can’t Stop Demba Ba Leaving – Alan Pardew

10:09 am, Sunday, December 9th, 2012 by Ed Harrison · 11 Comments

Alan Pardew is a little worried that Demba Ba may leave the club in January, when his release clause becomes active again, and we are likely to see another circus created by his agents, who are trying to make money out of him.

Demba Ba – out of Newcastle’s hands

Demba has again been brilliant for Newcastle this season, and has 10 goals in his 16 appearances for Newcastle – and he got another great brace for the Magpies in our fantastic 3-0 win against Wigan Athletic last Monday night.

The rumors are out there every Sunday and a couple of times during the week that specific clubs are after the 27 year-old Senegal striker, but that’s not much different from what it was like in the summer, and he didn’t leave then.

Manager Pardew is now hoping that Demba Ba, who is simply adored by Newcastle fans – will show some loyalty to Newcastle, who showed faith in him last year, after his suspect knees failed a medical at Stoke City almost two years ago.

But Alan said he can do nothing about Ba leaving if a club comes in with around £7M in January:

“It’s out of my hands and it’s out of the club’s hands to a degree.” “We have tried to remove the clause but without success.” “It’s still there but Demba’s still our player and it’s still going to take a lot for him to leave.”

“I think he has a lot of loyalty to us. We’ve done brilliantly for him as a football club, given him a platform and it would be a blow to us to lose him in the next window.”

Demba Ba can become an even bigger hero at Newcastle, if he signs a new deal and stays on Tyneside – Newcastle fans like to see loyalty in our players, and Ba has a big chance now to become an even  bigger hero on Tyneside.

And in the immortal words of Elvis Presley – we want you – we need you and we love you.

Sign for us Demba Ba.

    I’m sure we could get an ”upgrade” on Simpson – someone like Corchia or play Santon Rb and get a LB.

    Massive priority is a CB as clearly Willo is not fit for purpose and Saylor will never play a full season.
    Alderwield or M’Biwa would fit the bill. Both would take us to another level as M’Biwa can play RB as well
    and they are both ball players who can bring the ball out.

    Not convinced Ba going would be that disastrous, just play Cisse as 1 main central striker in a 433 or 4231.

    Neither way I think the club should focus on getting a new striker in January – as Pardew says, it’s out of his hands anyway and the club as well to a certain degree.

    …then focus on what’s in your hands – getting 2-3 new faces in January (one of them a striker)

    There is really no point in going over this again and again!

    It’s getting to the point where i am so sick of hearing about Ba’s clause, i almost want him to leave if he doesn’t sign the new contract.
    Huge blow, yes, but still, this is just annoying now.

    As Dannyo says, it is just getting a noosense!!!

    not sure how pardew can say Ba has loyalty towards us,, if so he would take the clause out,
    just a thought,
    before he signed for west am, , i bet he had never heard of us,

    i was talking to a fan of newcastle from iceland last night,, he made a great point,, all these top players we have, when they signed, they said they want to take us back into europe, not many of these players got a chance to show there tallents in the competition for us, with pardew chosing the kids over them

    he was also ov the same opinion as me, it dosent matter who pardew gets in to play for the club, his philosphy wont change on how he wants the game played,

    there for will not move the club to that next level, and is looking more likely to take us backwards

    with 10 men wigan attacked us,
    us against sunderland, just sat back,,

    best form of defence is attack,

    apart from the teams playing in the champions league who can afford ba,s pay demands.all my working life i wanted more than i was getting but i got what my employer could afford to pay me,its about time football players realised this.i also notice that whu have another player with a clause in the contract if i was a chairman of a football club i wouldn,t agree to any such clauses

  • 10 petey // Dec 9, 2012 at 9:28 PM

    Why dont Newcastle just give him the 90k a week contract, then sell him in January for a tonne more money than the supposed 7m buyout clause.

    Then go back to a 4-3-3 that did so well for us last season, with Marvauex – Cisse – Ben Arfa combo

    Or buy someone mint to replace Ba that can slot into that spot i put Marveaux in.

    Ba is not loyalty . Money is his loyalty . That’s all.
    Bye bye Baba
