Demba Ba


Recommended Posts

On 4 January 2013, Ba joined Chelsea for an undisclosed fee. Ba signed a three-and-a-half-year contract, becoming the first ever Senegalese player to join the club. He received the vacant number 29 shirt. Ba made his debut against Southampton in the third round of the FA Cup on 5 January. He marked his first appearance for the club by scoring two goals in a 51 victory for Chelsea. He scored on his home league debut on 16 January in the 2-2 draw against the same club.

On 2 February 2013, Ba first played his former team Newcastle in a Premier League match. The match was held at Newcastle's St. James' Park. In the 32nd minute of the match Ba had a chance to open the scoring but his initial attempt on goal was saved by Newcastle keeper Tim Krul. Ba managed to head the rebounded ball and in doing so collided with Coloccini. The collision resulted in a broken nose and Ba was substituted in the 43rd minute. Newcastle went on to win the game 32. After a run of seven games without finding the back of the net, Ba added to his goals collection by scoring in a 10 win against West Bromwich at Stamford Bridge on 2 March.

On 1 April, Ba scored a goal from a long Juan Mata cross in the FA Cup quarter-final replay against Manchester United, giving Chelsea a 10 victory and a spot at Wembley against Manchester City in the semi-finals of the competition.

He will be eligible for selection for tomorrow's FA Cup match at Southampton, and the Capital One Cup semi-final against Swansea, but cannot play for us in the Europa League this season having appeared in the competition for Newcastle. He will wear the no. 29 shirt.

(I was gonna post this on the transfer post while still w8ing for him to be confirmed officially)

Maybe they might even buy him a couple of houses and take him on a world tour and then they will take the last flight on January the 31st and then arrive on the Feb 1 and then the deal will be off....... seems legit
