Demba Ba to Chelsea? He's a bargain for €7...Fernando Torres better start getting comfortable on that bench.

Yeah, but he's been a monster when he's healthy the last 2 years. He'd fit great as a target man with Chelsea.

Does he get scared when he's about to have a chance to score? No? Then he'll fit better with Chelsea.

I'm no soccer expert but Torres has no balls.

Demba Ba...I was thinking yesterday how Arsenal should go after him...but then again, Wenger should leave. It's done.


Falcao is worth shooting for, but Demba Ba should work...wouldn't stop me from pursuing Falcao in the Summer.


Barcelona should never have bought Sanchez...and Juventus does not need him, unless they're changing formation.


Daniel Sturridge...I loved him after a 5min stint for City some years back...he's a great pickup for Liverpool...but not as a winger. Play with two forwards. Or let him and Suarez mix it up...Tottenham should have gone after him, but they don't know what they're doing.

Sturridge to Liverpool official, and Ba to Chelsea.

Quite pleased. Hopefully Ba can put it in the back of the net unlike Torres.

EDIT: Apparently Ba will be signing a 3 year contract.

Well if Torres made a book about his career, Demba Ba would need to ask Torres nicely if he is allowed to read it. Yup, as far as football goes those two cant be compared. Chelsea is just a dumb club that ruins players careers. ( same as Real )

I guess this means no Falcao for Chelsea, at least until the season is over.

Ba is a fantastic striker in the EPL, but I do wonder whether he'll prove a liability in the CL. Not that Chelsea needs to worry about that for the rest of the season, but I don't think he'll be able to keep up when the game turns more technical.

He has a contractually limited transfer fee reportedly around 8,5 million euros, I think the 7 million figure is the amount in GBP.

Keep in mind though that both Ba himself and his agent reportedly demand signing bonuses of around 3 million, so the total fee is going to be more like 15 million euros.



Still cheap though.

Demba Ba, YET ANOTHER FOOTBALL MANAGER LEGEND, who was a beast on FM ever since his days in Hoffenheim, who has played his way to one of Europe's biggest teams.

Football Manager scouts are better than the real ones.

Chelsea didnt ruin Torres. he ruined himself by playing through that injury in the 2010 world cup. His confidence was based on his speed, turns out he's abit useless without it.

The whole team was built to help torres succeed this year and he still cant do it. He is responsible for three managers, Carlo, AVB and Di Matteo, getting fired. The best we can hope for is Athletico taking him as a cash+swap deal for Falcao to lower his price.

WTF are you talking about? Now you like Torres because he's no longer featured at Chelsea? Serious?
