Papiss Cisse Dreams Of Newcastle In Europe

Newcastle are now almost certainly in the Europa League for next season,  and the lads even have a chance to qualify for a Champions League place too.

Papiss Cisse – I dream of Newcastle in Europe

But with Chelsea beating Barcelona 1-0 last night in the first leg of the semi-final, if Chelsea do win the Champions League this season for the first time ever, and are not in the top four, then 4th place will be allocated to a Europa League position and Chelsea will be entered in the Champions League.

It would just be  Newcastle’s luck if we finish 4th top above Chelsea and then the Blues win the Champions League – but enough of such negative thinking. 😀

But we have noticed that teams Newcastle still have to play in the league this season – like Wigan, Chelsea and Manchester City – have all come back into their best form over the last few weeks so it could be tough.

Papiss Cisse leaves little doubts about wanting to play in Europe,  and he had this to say about the potential European competition with Newcastle next season:

“That’s my objective, Europe. I like it. I sleep with it, I wake up with it every morning.”  “I know it’s tight at the top of the table, but I’m trying to do my best and hopefully we’ll get there.”

“I think Newcastle will go far in the future. If we keep doing what we’re doing at the moment we will get better and better. I’ve noticed we have some very good players in the academy and eventually they will come into the first team.”

“And do their bit to take the team further.”

Saturday’s game at home to Stoke could see Newcastle mathematically clinch that Europa League position with a win, and it just so happens that Chelsea play at Arsenal in the game before Newcastle’s – and then Tottenham are at QPR in the game after Newcastle play.

There’s three games for Newcastle fans to watch around the world on Saturday, so we had better make sure we have the bucket and sponge by the chair.

A Newcastle win and losses by both  Chelsea and Tottenham would have us in orbit – and in 4th place in the league table.

All we want to see is a Newcastle win on Saturday, because essentially it’s up to the lads to show just how good they are at this business end of the season.

There could still be some positive shocks in store for Newcastle fans, before this phenomenal season finally comes to an end at Everton on Sunday, May 13th.

Here’s hoping.

Howay The Lads!!

    Jail previous post

    I think he is starting to reveal a little of what he is doing.

    My only dissapointment is that nobody has come out and said along side the ‘self sustaining’ remark that we hope to be challenging the top 4.

    It may have been said but I can’t remember seeing it.

    Just seen a big merc pull up outside the malmasion. A French fella step out with about 4 people dressed in suits. One had an nufc tie on. He checked in and spoke in French that’s how I knew his nationality.

    I think it might be that butterfield player!!!
