Talking after today’s vital win over Aston Villa, Demba Ba had this to say when asked about his Senegalese strike partner.

“It was a big day for him and I am very happy for him. When you come to a new team it is very hard sometimes to settle in. I think he is a good lad, so he will settle in okay.

It was not so important that I scored. I was very happy that we got the win today and it doesn’t matter if I score today or somebody else. I am happy, but it was not the most important thing”.

You know what, I’ve got a good feeling about these two. Great movement and they both clearly know where the back of the net is.

Show me a better front pair than these two potentially can be? I think I’m going for a lie down!

  • Renee Tweedy

    It’s like Shearer and Ferdinand of the old days, brilliant. Yes, a lie down is needed after that match,

  • Martin Booth

    lets hope for the good of the fans and club that we can hold onto these two during the summer and finally watch the team flourish and build on from here, at last good times ahead the future looks brighter

    We need to get into Europe to show these two and our other big names that we mean business.

    Like many others i hope fat ash see’s what can be achieved with this team and builds on it .We live in hope.

  • Mal

    They both seem to have a great attitude and Ba seems to enjoy playing here. Hopefully we’ll be offering him a new contract to get rid of that ‘get out’ clause – and hopefully he signs up. They could prove to be a formidable duo.
