Scanning the internet yesterday one little snippet of news caught my eye.

Published on the BBC site, it intimated that Demba Ba was flying to Italy to undertake a fitting session for a protective guard for his broken nose.

The idea being that a protective guard would enable him to participate in the fixture against Wigan this Saturday.

If everything goes to plan, Ba would join the likes of Petr Cech and John Terry, of the current squad, who have donned facial protection to enable participation in crucial matches.

Fair play to you Demba, it would have been so easy to just sit on the side-lines biding his time, going that extra-mile shows just how much pulling on that blue-shirt, even though he`s a new boy.
