'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Do Your Duty Demba!

Having moved to Besiktas, for a spell in Turkish football, after being deemed surplus to requirements, Demba Ba is already something of a hero.

Demba, by scoring a hat-trick against Feyenoord in a Champions League qualifier, became the first Besiktas player to score a hat-trick in Champions League football.

But things could get better for Demba.

The Turkish club, today, were drawn to play Arsenal in a Champions League qualifier with the first leg of the tie set to be played on either 19th or 20th August.

Now wouldn`t it be something else if Demba could score the goals to knock Arsenal out!

Ba Ba Ba...three shot combo and lights out for the specialist and his newly acquired chilean with a penchant for wedgies.

A bit of a double edged sword this one Merlin, because as much as I'd love Demba to poop on "The Professor", we need to keep English clubs' co-efficient up. Mind you we can do that by winning the thing again, so yes, do it Demba
