Pardew – It Was A Dream Goal By Cisse – Perch Brilliant


It wasn’t surprising that Alan Pardew was delighted to see Papiss Cisse score a great goal on his Newcastle debut this afternoon at St. James’ Park.

The two Dembas celebrate after Cisse goal

The two Senegal strikers showed what they are capable of this afternoon,  with two opportunistic  goals for the Magpies, to give them all 3 points against a decent Aston Villa side.

Alan Pardew praised Papiss Cisse after the game, and Newcastle fans will have gone home this afternoon (or to the pub), rubbing their hands together,  with the thoughts of what these two lads can do for Newcastle through the end of this season.

This is what a delighted Newcastle manager told Sky Sports after the game:

“We mustn’t get carried away from the team ethic we have got here because the guys did brilliantly to get a result at Blackburn in the week and again we have put in a display here that has been strong,” 

“Perch in midfield was brilliant. We had no Cheick Tiote today, no Yohan Cabaye, but we keep winning. That’s a great thing.”

“Having said that, you still need great players because they change games. Papiss did that today and Demba has done it for us before.”  “It was a real bonus that he got a goal on his debut.” “They are a dangerous pair.”

“Of course he got a dream goal for us, because he’s a new signing and he wanted to do well. It was a fantastic goal.”  “Papiss has got that ability to turn with his first touch, and Demba’s got that too.”

“They can get at back fours as soon as the ball is played into them.”  We have got dangerous strikers all over the place here because Shola Ameobi and Besty have done well.”

“Peter Lovenkrands is there as well and Hatem Ben Arfa, so we have got firepower. We just need to tighten up a little bit more.”

“It was a good win because Villa came here and looked lively. They looked lively first half.”  “Although they scored just before half-time, they deserved to be level. They deserved to be in the lead at half-time.”

“We accepted that and second half we knew we had to be better and more controlled, and we were. We limited their breakaways on us and we got a bit of pressure building.”

That’s a good point Alan makes, because Villa looked very dangerous in that first half,  and Newcastle had Tim Krul to thank for two good saves and good goalkeeping in general in those first 45 minutes.

In that first half the defense was stretched too many times by the Villa fast breaks, and that was a concern, and it’s that part of the game Newcastle must tighten up for the next game at White Hart Lane next Saturday afternoon.

In the second half Newcastle were the better side,  and both Guthrie and Perch had good games in the center of midfield, and Santon and Obertan also looked good.

But hey, the lads got the job done today, and it was our 4th successive win this year at St. James’ Park in front of a crowd of just under 49,000.

    Altho Perch did good today, i can’t see him holding his own against Parker and Modric.
    It’ll be a scary game imo.

    alkinou – what did Hull do wrong – try to survive themselves? The nerve! The banners by Villa supporters left a very bad taste.. having said that we got a massive one over them with the 6-0 first home game back- that felt bloody good. I know a few villians who were embarrassed by the banners too.

    Bygones lads.. grudge holding aint classy, let it go.

    To be fair, the first penalty is a penalty anyday. Sturridge tries to get the ball but only hits evra.. the next one is a bit softer and although ivanovic tries to get out of the tackles he hits welbeck.. If newcastle didn’t get those penalties i would be furious

    That David De Gea save was magnificent, how did he ever reach that?!
    I think he broke a few physics laws just done.
    WOW. If that’s what lies within De Gea, then by all means, give him time.

    De Gea doesn’t deserve half the stick he has been getting, what a keeper, might need to beef up a bit and dominate his box a bit better but really think he will be a top top keeper given a bit of time.

    That result will surely have taken the wind out of Chelsea’s sails, they lost a game that they had all sown up and maybe they could go on a bit of a slide, which we then take advantage of 😉 4th…? Nah lads it’s a pipe dream but defo hope Spuds beat the fools so we can finish ahead of them 🙂

    I’ve said this all season and I’ll say it again, I don’t think Chelsea will qualify for the Champions League. But the question is who will get 4th place out of us, Arsenal and Liverpool.

    I have recently been thinking that Arsenal will. Although I really hope we can pull off a miracle and grab it.

    Got to say Howard Webb today was extremly poor i dont usually comment on referering decsions but today was a total shambles by him.

    he is totally biased towards man united no doubt

    1st penalty for me was maybe but only maybe

    2nd penalty was no penalty atall.

    couldnt believe the 2nd penalty was given.

    *as a toon fan very happy chelsea dropped points
    *however if i was a chelsea fan or actually bet on this match i would feel very ill indeed.

    lets hope the ref 2moro night makes some wise choices as i got a bet on it 😛

    cisse=great goal today

    however 1st game wasnt to impressed for a 9 million striker his touches werent great and looked rather messy with his play really did.

    might get abit frustrating to watch

    example should of scored header but then scores a goal he shouldnt of.

    oba martins anyone?

    anyways only 1st game im sure he come good and will bang in the goals non stop
