Ba though was brilliant for Newcastle, and he will always be fondly remembered in the Toon.

Vintage Demba Ba! ????

After Shearer this bloke is for me the next best striker I’ve seen at #NUFC I was too young to fully appreciate Cole or Ferdinand

These Newcastle fans were quick to praise Ba.
Nah there’s better to be had. Scored a beauty in a win over Man Utd for one..

Others loved that goal but preferred the one he scored against Manchester United.
