Pardew – It Was A Special Night For Newcastle United

Papiss Cissse now has 13 goals in just 12 appearances for Newcastle.

Papiss Cisse scores first goal after 20 minutes

And he has scored a brace a number of times for Newcastle this season, and his two goals last night were all the rage on the sports programs.

His first goals was made by Davide Santon who made a nice run down the left wing before putting the ball through to Cisse, who deftly controlled the ball with his right foot, and then hit it so sweetly with his left foot, and the ball flew into the net.

Then after 94 minutes, with the Magpies still 1-0 ahead,  Shola  Ameobi headed the ball back to Cisse and he used his right foot this time, and hit the ball with the outside of his foot from the left wing, and the ball swerved over Peter Cech and into the net,  to send the Newcastle fans delirious behind the goal.

We suppose Shola gets an assist for that – but are assists  given out for world class strikes like we saw last night from the Senegal striker?

Alan Pardew was clear after the game that it was a special night all around for Newcastle, and he’s right there:

“It was an astonishing goal. We were seeing the game out at one-nil and I thought we were going to get home with the goal we had, but Cisse took a chance, you could see he meant it.”

“And he hit it absolutely true and it was just a great moment for us, to win here after 18 times we’ve come without a win.”

“The first goal was a great goal. I’ve only just seen it because there were a lot of bodies in the way. He just teed up. He is in great form and you can se the work rate that he has bought into in terms of the team.”

“The commitment Papiss has shown in terms of coming in and settling in, it was a special night for him and a special night for the club.”

Newcastle are getting some great headlines this morning, after their 7th win in just 8 games, and yes – a Champions League place is possible.

If Newcastle can beat an in-form Chelsea side at Stamford Bridge, then it’s even possible that we can beat Manchester City at home on Sunday, and Everton away the following Sunday, in our final two games of the season.

And if we can do that, we could (will?) see Newcastle finish in the top four this season.

    I think Cisse will stay until the end of his career, because he already learned that anyone who left this club will have bad career like Barton, AC, Nolan, etc.

    These are the types of goals that cause News presenters to say ” the world is till coming to terms with a lethal strike by senegal sniper PAPISS DEMBA CISSE”. This strike could cost west london millions of pounds and the tremors may be felt in Russia too.

    Well I’m just waiting around for bob/ted/eric/daffy who I believe will not have the nuts to show up. Where are you, daffers and your trolling alter-egos? come on, give us your wisecracks now you candy-striped mutt.

    That should draw him out 🙂

    What a great game, last night….had to have the day off work to recover. Cisse’s goals were….well, the first was just magnificent and the second,it’s hard to describe but all I can say is that the pub I watched it in totally erupted and grown men threw their beers in the air and hugged and kissed and danced like we had won the Cup or something! A pleasure to have witnessed such a great goal.
    Just read the match thread on here from lastnight….and Jamsha (bless him) summed up a wonderful night with a wonderous phrase…I quote…
    “Bastard of flowers.Wow!” 🙂

    Tsunki – I’ll start it off! Pardew is hopeless – I think he left it 3 minutes too late to bring Shola on- no tactical clue.
    We’ve been very lucky, could have been fighting a relegation battle. MA is just waiting to sell half the team blah blah…. Can’tyou fools see what’s going to happen?
    (Will that do for starters?)

    What a goal (x2)! Incredible. It’s been a long time since i’ve felt this proud of my team, my roots, and the black and white blood that runs through my veins.
