This is Why Demba Ba Could Stay At Newcastle


Demba Ba got another two goals today in Newcastle’s 7-3 loss to Arsenal, after the scores were all square at 3-3 after 70 minutes, and the Magpies had been doing well, but once again Newcastle capitulated late in the game, and conceded three goals in the last six minutes of normal time.

Demba Ba – could be too expensive for some clubs

WE all know that the striker has a £7M release clause in his contract but the Sunday people is reporting that the 27 year-old striker may stay at Newcastle.

That’s because his representatives are asking for huge fees in any deal and the amount is said to be over £5M, which pushes the fee to over £12M, and then there’s the enormous wages they are asking for Demba – said to be £80K/week, and when you consider he still has a dodgy knee that may be a risk for any club.

The window opens next Tuesday so Newcastle fans will once again, have to wait and see if any club comes after the Senegal striker, who has been in sparkling goal-scoring form ever since he arrived on Tyneside last year.

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew said earlier this week that Newcastle will sell Ba in the summer if he does not agree to a new contract on Tyneside, and that’s though to be around £70K/week that the striker’s agents have turned down from Newcastle.

The People are quoting an inside source at the club as saying the following:

“There are people in the dressing room who believe Demba Ba has let Mike Ashley and Newcastle down after the way they helped resurrect his career. They’ve been kicked in the teeth.”

Newcastle are pursuing Marseilles striker Loic Remy, but the very fact he has told Newcastle he wants to review all offers made to him next month – might suggest he is not all that keen to join Newcastle.

If Ba is still at the Tyneside club come February – and we hope he is – the player will face increasing pressure from Newcastle to sign a new deal, or be shipped out in the summer.

It may well be that the best deal Demba Ba can get is the one that Newcastle have already offered him.

We hope so.

    Sorry but had to add that comment about getting rid of Krul was a hilarious example of fickleness gone mad.

    Watch this space come end of Jan and nobody has called for Demba.

    just because you say he isnt, or he does not want to play there dont mean he carnt
    im sure HBA dont want to play there too but he is
    im sure Cisse dont want to play there but he is

    tunski

    i would accept a freak result if it was one,,
    but he went toe to toe with man c, we were lucky it was 1-3
    he went toe to toe with man u,4-3
    now today 7-3
    thats foolish

    what made him think with a weaker defence he stood a better chance

    If they honestly believe that then they’re mugs. He came in for peanuts after they sold a striker for 35 million. He then out scored that 35 million pound striker and continues to do so. He is doing his job and I don’t blame him for wanting more money.

    Everyone on here slamming Pardew for not demanding defenders –

    Do you all have Alzheimer’s?!!!

    Pardew came out into the media and said we would be buying Debuchy (“cabayes friend”) and an “8 goal a season centre back.”

    He told Ashley exactly what we needed,
    Ashley and lambias have let us down.

    As I said, use your brain before your keyboard.

    Hmmm well ashley needs a reality check then, when did his career need resurrecting exactly?
    Pretty sure it was west ham who gave him his chance after his “failed” medical and if we hadn’t signed everton were more than happy to offer him a contract along with several other clubs
    Truth is demba owes us fcuk all, we used his knee to keep his wages low, he’s been a revelation and now wants a fair contract to reflect his ability fair play to him

    Catchy
    You having a fcuking laugh or something? You’ve spent most afternoon stating obertan couldn’t cross a road and now you envision him whipping in crosses?
    And marv, are creative spark, you want LM leaving a CM of tiote and bigi to DCM’s? In fact we’ve played a 442, which is basically the same, with bigi and tiote in the middle and you absolutly fcuking hammered pardew for being to negative!
    Such a hypocrite its unbelievable!!!

    Joe – I meant a ball playing centre back to play alongside colo would put less pressure on tiote, give him the easy ball when he needs it, but knowing that options there will also give him time to play a ball forward. Which he can do, eg. Assist vs reading.

    Catchy – so basically your saying –

    Just because he isn’t a winger, it doesn’t matter. I want him to play as a winger and will post abuse directed towards Pardew when he isn’t played as winger.

    Everyone, the logic of Catchy.

    This is a prime example of Mike Ashley trying to run th eclub on bare bones. Its Backfiring as we all knew it would. we will be lucky not to get relegated this season as with the europa and fa cup were stuffed… we need a new right back a centre half 2central midfielders and a new striker and not 18 or 19 year old kids .

    most of the games iv seen marv play is winger, so why is it so wrong for me to assume that?
    wiki
    Sylvain Marveaux (born 15 April 1986) is a French football player who currently plays for English club Newcastle United in the Premier League. He can play a variety of positions in the midfield, but is mostly utilized as a left-sided midfielder or an attacking midfielder. Marveaux is a former French under-21 international having earned caps with the team from 2006–2008. He is the younger brother of Joris Marveaux, who currently stars for Montpellier.

    A player that consistently puts the ball in the net like ba does can easily be on 100k a week and most likely a lot more. Why should he stay for less money then he can get else where? It’s not like he’ll be winning many trophies with us.

    Catchy you think that its not freakish to put a treble past both those clubs inside three days and not only still get beaten, and get hammered right at the very end of game 2? OK.

    Pardew to Blame? Maybe anther gamble here or there would have paid off who knows?

    Ashley & LLambias to blame?- could have held out for the players wanted but feasibly the plan to hold until summer could have worked without so many key injuries.

    Injuries to blame? – Why not? Ask ANY manager if he would have no trouble under the same circumstances. Low rotation and a weak squad = fatigue and demotivates when a losing streak kicks in.

    You need to spread your blame net a bit wider and more evenly to keep credibility.

    Conaldo Pards did say he wanted a goal scoring cb but then we got injuries to perch and Taylor whilst the window is open and suddenly we have enough cover? What’s all that about? It’s penny pinching. Another source close to mike recently said “once he has his own valuation of a player he won’t budge” that’s excellent, such a big shot eh.

    Centre backs – who do we want?

    I’m not entirely sold on Douglas,

    In the premier league, Lescott is available, but is 30.

    Good centre backs are hard to come by, but we sure need one.

    That would be a solution, but ballplaying centrebacks are not known for their steel are they? And at this moment in time we are already lacking with some serious steel. Getting another ball playing centreback instead of an old school tony adams would just make things worse in my opinion.

    On another subject, Colo is a figure of calmness, which is great when you’re on a high like we were last season, and he adds the glossing to the class we already had. But in times like these, how we could use a figure like Tony Adams, John Terry, or even Joey Barton. Somebody who plays with fire in their belly, who would shout and scream in the dressing room after this game. Somebody who others can look to when their backs are against the wall, and sadly I don’t think Colo is that person. That’s why i still believe an English spine is so important which sadly is the direction we’re heading away from.
