I'm not really that upset we sold Sturridge but it's frustrating to let him go and see him banging in goals all the time when our strikers can't find the net to save their lives.


Best £12mm we've spent in a long time...

16 EPL matches... 12 goals and 5 assists

They were awful together
Not really. They were pretty damn good matter of fact. They had about 30 goals between them in 2011/12.

Misleading... Ba scored them all the first part of the year and when Cisse was brought in, in January, he scored most the second half of the year...

They were basically the same player, trying to partner... didnt work out to well IMO..

Cisse was signed during ACON in Jan 2012...

quote:

Ba and Cissé returned earlier than expected after Senegal finished bottom of their group, with Ba having missed three Premier League games and two FA Cup games, the second of which saw Newcastle knocked out of the cup. He returned to action against Aston Villa on their visit to St James' Park on 5 February 2012, his return proved to be a goal scoring one as he netted the opener in the game which Newcastle won 2–1. This would prove to be Ba's last goal of the season, as he moved to the left of a three pronged attack with Papiss Cisse leading the line, and grabbing 12 goals in the second half of the season.

And just to hammer the point home... In the first half of the 2012/13 season for Cisse..

quote:

The striker's scoring was scarce throughout the opening four months of the season, only scoring his second league goal of the season on 28 November, a 2–1 away defeat to Stoke City.[25]


They were never on form together... bad partnership..

Ba and Cisse can't play together. As far as the Eto'o move, I like it. He can't be worse than what we have and we didn't pay for a transfer. It's only a 1 year deal so it hurts nothing.

It can't hurt assuming nobody else was going to be brought in

Can easily see Willian, Oscar and Hazard being his "3"

They work best in his counter attacking style... Seems odd saying it given Mata's class...
