If we had to point out people who best define those people with a complete lack of class and ethics – then Demba Ba’s agents would be near the top of the list – no - let’s rephrase that – they would be top of our list.
Demba Ba – announcement soon of his Chelsea signing soon
It seems that Demba Ba passed a full medical yesterday and has agreed terms on a £70K/week deal, but the transfer has been delayed because three of his so-called agents have been haggling over how the £2M agents fees is to be split.
Chelsea have met the £7M release clause in his Newcastle contract (note to Newcastle – never put this stuff in a contract ever again – please), and Demba Ba agreed terms, and seems to have passed his medical, but still no official news from Chelsea, but it needs to be announced before 12 noon today, since that will make him eligible to play tomorrow for Chelsea at Southampton.
We expect the announcement of Ba’s transfer very soon, but for our club and Newcastle fans, we have to forget about this player – and the lads that are left at the club will hopefully fight like crazy to get us away from the relegation zone – as the first step.
When good players leave Newcastle, we’ve always thought the best way to think about ii is if they want to leave – so be it.
We only want players at the club who are proud to wear the shirt, and if they want to leave for big money elsewhere - the sooner they leave the better.
Demba Ba was great for Newcastle in the eighteen months he was at the club – and we thank him for his 29 goals – - but the way he left us puts a stain on his character.
That’s our opinion, whatever Alan Pardew says to the contrary.
Howay the Lads!!
