Aye, he cost West Ham £7mill. He didn't cost Newcastle a penny on a transfer fee!

I never said they did. I was more saying if it wasn't for West Ham's crazy/stupid clause he would have been expensive.

Though I know Ba probably wouldn't have gone to West Ham had it not been for the clause.

I honestly think Tiote is one of the most effective players I've seen in the EPL this season. Has the same effect keane vierra essien had for their respective teams IMO.

A few players in Newcastle's squad who will be stars in the future (tu)

Tim Krul just needs to iron out a few issues and he'll be a top 'keeper. Tiote and Cabaye are class acts, Ben Arfa needs to get to his pre-injury form and he'll be brilliant and of course Demba Ba is the signing of the season so far.

Some decent deals been done in the past few years by Newcastle, can't be long before Ashley does something to fuck it up now.

Demba Ba is still a risk.

Tony Pulis is no fool and from what he said when Stoke turned Ba down, he's one twisted stud/kick to the knee away from disaster.

Great player though.

In a way risk free for Newcastle as he IS a quality player and they are only paying his wages. Sometimes a risk is worth taking.
