That Ba Mask
Following on from our little piece yesterday, relating to Demba Ba travelling to Italy to acquire a face mask, we have a little more to offer.
It seems that Ba acquired the said mask and has trained, back at Cobham, wearing it. It looks as if Rafa Benitez now has to make a straight choice between selecting Demba or opting for Fernando Torres when we face Wigan Athletic on Saturday.
However, as is often the case when players acquire extras we understand that the face mask, which will protect the nose he broke up at Newcastle last Saturday, has been customized and bears his name and number.
Whatever next, replica masks on sale in the club shop!
