In a tightly contested vote, Demba Ba is the Talk of the Tyne October 2012 Player of the Month. He did so with 35% of the total vote.
He may have only added one league goal in October but it was his all round game which won the vote proving that he is more than just a poacher.
Special mention must go to Davide Santon who has had a cracking run and it’s hard to believe that he is still only 21. He came second with 25%.
Third was James Perch.
Performance of the month goes to Fabricio Coloccini for the world class performance against the unwashed.
