FA Cup Proves Ba’s Stupidity

8 years ago

Demba Ba must be waking up this morning with one of those Strawberry Syrup induced hangovers and thinking ‘what on earth have I done’?!!

There he is scoring twice on his debut in a 5-1 win for Chelsea against Premier League Southampton, playing alongside Mata, Ramires, Hazard, Lampard and Oscar.

When he could have been sixty miles further along the coast getting knocked out by lower league Brighton and playing alongside Obertan, Williamson, Ranger and the Ameobi brothers…sounds a bit like a circus, which of course it is.

After the match Demba Ba used Twitter to send out the following;

“Could hardly go any better, so happy to play with world class players”.

Not a lot you can say to that really, is there?

Imagine if Ba was still at Newcastle and had played in our starting eleven at Brighton.

He has proved himself to be a top striker in the last couple of years and if I have been him I think I would have been tempted to just walk off the pitch if I’d had to play with Obertan and Sammy Ameobi any longer, both of them control the ball further than I can kick it!

Last season we finished above Chelsea, pretty safe bet that this won’t happen again for a year or two…
