Alan Pardew Hails Papiss Cisse’s Wonder Strike


After Newcastle’s  stunning win at Stamford Bridge tonight  – Newcastle’s first win there since 1986, Alan Pardew hailed the brilliant Papiss Cisse, the scorer of  Newcastle’s two great goals.

Papiss Cisse goes into orbit after fantastic second goal in stoppage time

And with the referee awarding Chelsea 10 minutes of stoppage time with Newcastle 1-0 up – it would have been 15 minutes if Newcastle had been 2-0 up – Papiss Cisse hit his and Newcastle’s second goal in stunning and sensational style.

And I use my words carefully.

It will be a candidate for the goal of the season, as the Senegal man sent a curling right foot shot from the left wing,  over the Chelsea goalkeeper and into the net.

Take another look.

Cisse’s first goal was terrific, when he was set up by young Davide Santon,  and his second was even better.

After the game a delighted Newcastle manager Al;an Pardew told Sky Sports:

“I actually thought we were going to win 1-0 with our 15th clean sheet of the season, but the goal was special.”

“It sums him up. He feels he is just going to score whenever he is near the goal.”

Newcastle were disappointing and poor on Saturday at Wigan,  but they more than atoned tonight,  with an excellent display.

It was one of the best performances of the season from the Magpies, who remain in 5th place tied on 65 points with Tottenham, with Spurs easily beat Bolton 4-1 at the Reebok tonight.

But now Newcastle are 4 points ahead of Chelsea,  and could finish 5th top, which should mean we go straight into the group stages of the Europa League.

Yes I know – we can also finish 4th top – so we will now need to beat Manchester City on Sunday.

But it will probably be without the great Cheick Tiote,  who was carried off on a stretcher in the second half, with no news on how bad the injury is.

A terrific show by this talented and gutsy Newcastle team tonight,  and they deserve immense credit for what they achieved tonight,  against a strong Chelsea side.

    I think crouches shot was speculative, Cisse looked up at the goal and meant every inch of it.

    Wins it for me but guarentee Crouch will get it as he’s english.

    I keep watching the second goal and I swear the curl and swerve on the ball defies Physics.
    It is possibly and quite probably the best goal I have ever seen in my life.

    I think in terms of a strike it’s the best goal I’ve seen.

    I don’t think you can compare HBA’s blackburn goal – totally different and equally brilliant. But that’s the best strike of a football I’ve ever seen.

    Not a mention of Cisse in players of the year.

    I mean if you look at Cisse’s position before he strikes it, it’s like NO WAY IN 62 ICEAGES is he gonna score from there.

    And 4 point ahead of Chelsea and they have liverpool away, so 5th looks a strong possibility, which means less Europa games as we’ll miss the early rounds 🙂

    Spuggy – Cisses’ goal against Villa beats Crouchs’ in my opinion. That goal tonight was on another level….

    Goal number 1 was sublime. Goal number 2 was just plain rude to even try, and yet it’s possibly the finest one I have ever seen. Even more gratifying than Albert’s lob over Schmeichel.

    Who cares about the Champions League??

    THIS is why we watch football.

    Incredible moments that make the entire country sit up in awe. Moments like that make it worth sitting through all the absolute dross, and watching teams buy trophys time and time again.

    Amazing stuff. I absolutely love this football club, and everyone one of the staff and fans.

    Haha, so true. Somehow I don’t think Shola was thinking “So I’ll chest it down like, and he’ll leather it with the outside of his boot, top corner, easy”.

    the reason cisse is so prolific imo is because he takes shots early and doesnt take a touch t set him self or wait to get it on a prefered foot, totally instinctive and amazing. no matter what happens from here on in we have had an incredible season, howay the lads!!!

    As the goal went in, Newcastle
    manager Alan Pardew’s voice was picked
    up by the microphones, screaming ‘what
    an absolute monster!!’. His brace was
    described by pundit, Andy Townsend , as
    the best two goals by any one player in
    Premier League history

    What an amazing goal that was. Simply brilliant. The confidence with which he hit the ball in both goals. What a finisher and similar to the Great Alan Shearer-I bet he was proud with that strike.

    Pleasantly in shock still and Pardew and the lads are definitely making this one special season to remember.

    Tiote’s okay. Big cut on his head which you can see when he got up and then went back down again. Pards says he’ll be fine for Sunday. Imagine what he’d look like in a mask! Can’t see Silva or Nasri facing him up!

    What a season! Can’t wait for the next game, both teams going for the win and Tiote will be playing.

    Everything is looking so good for the future of the club. Happy days 🙂
