Scales Move In Favour Of Demba Ba

8 years ago

In the build up to Sunday’s match on Merseyside, much attention has been focused on whether Demba Ba will make the match after limping out of the West Brom match.

In midweek Alan Pardew said it would be 50/50 as to whether Ba would be available.

However, now the manager has declared it to be 70/30 in the player’s favour.

They must have some delicate scales in that treatment room but I think everything is pointing towards our top scorer making Sunday’s match, whether Alan Pardew risks him from the start is another matter.

The game represents a great opportunity to kill off an unwanted record going all the way back to 1994 when Newcastle last recorded a Premier League win at Anfield.

No doubt Ba scoring in a Newcastle win would then unleash even more speculation about a possible Liverpool offer for Demba in January.

I reckon I can live with even more nonsense if we come away with the three points.
