Demba Ba has been a revelation for Newcastle this season.
Demba Ba – in action on Wednesday night
Ba has a good 13 league goals for Newcastle this season, and he has scored 10 goals more than any other Newcastle player.
The Senegal striker is also joint second in the Premier League scoring charts and this is what the goals chart looks like in the Premier League right now:
Van Persie Arsenal 16
Ba Newcastle 13
Rooney Man Utd 13
Aguero Man City 13
Dzeko Man City 10
Yakubu Blackburn 10
Adebayor Tottenham 9
Sturridge Chelsea 9
Balotelli Man City 8
Now let’s think a moment – how much did van Persie, Rooney, Aguero and Dzeko cost in the transfer market?
Demba Ba has been one of the best free agent signings this year, yet he is not getting his just rewards in the press and the London press keep saying that 31 year-old Scott Parker of Tottenham was the best signing in the summer.
What have they been smoking?
And the man himself is upbeat about the future of Newcastle and refuses to be gloomy about the current situation at Newcastle:
“I’m not really worried when I look at this team, because of the spirit we have, the chances we create and the amount of bad fortune we’ve had.”
“We have to stay realistic. It’s only our second season back in the Premier League. If at the start of the season you’d said at this stag we’d have 27 points from 17 games most people would have been happy.”
“I hope everyone stays behind us because I don’t think we’re doing too bad. If we’d started the season in the way we’ve played in the last six games then went 11 games unbeaten, everybody would be happy.”
“We’re just going to continue what we have been doing. I don’t think we’re playing badly.”
Ba is on a hot streak at the moment, and he should go into the Bolton game, their defense is not strong, and commit to scoring as many goals as he possible can and he should be satisfied until he scores three – in the first half. 😀
But even though things look a little bit glum at the moment, the 26 year-old can score at any time, as he showed on Wednesday evening with two great goals, and he was unlucky with some other attempts.
And his technique is so good because he hits the ball for the goals so sweetly, as the ball seems to go like a bullet shot from a gun.
It’s all about technique, and Dem Ba has lots of that.
Things are still looking up when we have players like Demba Ba in the Newcastle side.
