Another Reason Why Ba Could Be Back On The Market!

Last updated : 14 July 2013 By Footy Mad - Editor

West Brom tried to take him on loan - and Mourinho is still considering the offer.

Sensational news in the Sunday Mirror, which reports that Mourinho has set his heart on bringing Didier Drogba back to Stamford Bridge after the striker visited the club’s Cobham training ground last week for mystery talks with the Portuguese boss.

Drogba may be 35 but Mourinho is keen to have him at his side once more and is even prepared to wait until next summer when his contract expires with Galatasaray.

Mourinho and Drogba formed an incredibly strong bond during the former’s previous spell in charge of Chelsea and the club have failed to replace a player who scored 157 goals for the Blues before his departure in the summer of 2012.

This story makes a lot of sense and could be a great move for all parties concerned - bar Galatasaray, of course.

But that will put Ba further down the pecking order, and worse news still to come - Mourinho wants ANOTHER striker before the transfer window closes.

Ba for Newcastle? Who knows?

Only 5% Wanted Pardew - What's The Percentage Now? PLEASE VOTE

Mike Ashley stunned us all ... and I mean ALL ... when he sacked Chris Hughton and brought in Alan Pardew.

Apparently, Ashley knows Pardew from a London casino the pair used to visit, and the former West Ham boss talked his way into the job.

At the time the appointment was made, ourselves (NU-MAD) and the Chronicle held a poll to ask the Newcastle fans if they were happy with the new manager.

Both polls showed only 5% of Toon fans were happy, and if the truth was known, I'd say 3% of those were Mackems gatecrashing the voting!

So ... with Pardew two and half years into the job ... has he turned the voting around? Has he won you over?

We were still in the relegation dog-fight until Swansea won at Wigan a week before the season ended, and there was growing concern after heavy home defeats to Sunderland and Liverpool.

Pardew gave his excuses, saying his squad was "wafer thin and too small to tackle a long season".

Yet on Thursday - having lost Steve Harper, Danny Simpson, James Perch and Dan Gosling on the way to Crystal Palace (FOUR PLAYERS LESS) he said: "I'm not too concerned because we have a big squad".

Confused? We certainly were.

So click the button - PLEASE VOTE.

Is he the man for the job ... or not?
