NUFC’s official Twitter page has been taking requests and sharing nostalgic clips of old Newcastle United goals and memories, and today’s recaptures the moment Steven Taylor off put Stoke’s Asmir Begovic in the build up to a brilliant Yohan Cabaye free-kick.
Ba, who clearly still follows NUFC’s official account, has since reacted to the video, saying; “Steven…..I miss you crazy”.
See Ba’s tweet and the clip itself below:
The Senegalese striker may miss Steven Taylor, but I can guarantee that Newcastle fans miss Demba Ba more!
The forward was absolutely brilliant during his time on Tyneside, with his tally of 16 goals and 4 assists in our 2011/12 Premier League season yet to be bettered several years later.
What a player he was during that 5th place season and what a great character as well, with him clearly holding the club close to his heart several years on from his exit.
As for Steven Taylor, I think this clip says it all!
