Demba Ba Seems To Have The Troubles Of The World ...

Demba Ba Seems To Have The Troubles Of The World ...

A striker's life is all about scoring goals ... and Demba Ba (despite keeping up his good form) has not found the back of the net since February 5 and the 2-1 win over Aston Villa.

Ba was far from happy at Swansea on Good Friday, and his mood hardly improved against Bolton when he played out a frustrating 45 minutes when he looked out of sorts.

His pace was missing, and he failed to attack a couple of balls that could have been his - and that had Alan Pardew saying: “Cisse’s workrate was up there with the rest.”

Suggesting in the interview that Ba could have done better.

Alan Pardew: “Demba was upset when I brought him off as I had just had a go at him about something.

“I was trying to get a reaction from him, if I am honest.

“I want him to be angry and fight.

“He willcome out fighting.

“I know Demba, and I have no worries about him.

“He, Shola, Papiss and Hatem have massive roles to play for us between now and the end of the season.

“It was not Demba’s day, but it might be in two weeks’ time."
