Jonas Gutierrez has said today that Papiss Cisse has been amazing at Newcastle, but that it’s important not to concentrate too much on just one player.
Jonas Gutierrez – Papiss Cisse goal simply amazing
But it’s really hard not to do that at the moment with Papiss, but Jonas makes a good point, because it seems to us that Demba Ba is working so hard for the side, and he was unlucky not to score at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday evening.
But in the Sky Sports Interview after the game, Ba seemed upbeat and happy, and there was a good camaraderie between him and his Senegal strike partner, Papiss Cisse – and that was good to see.
Jonas was asked about Papiss’ second goal on Wednesday night, and the word he kept using was amazing:
“It was an amazing, amazing goal.” “It is difficult to score with that part of your boot, I did not know that was possible.”
“It was an incredible goal, to score from that position is amazing and in the last five minutes too? It is just amazing.”
“We are very happy about Cissé’s form, but we must talk about the whole team.” “Demba worked very hard – he worked extremely hard for us and that is also important.”
“We want him to come back to goal-scoring form.” “That is really important for him and for the whole team, for all of their confidence.”
Newcastle have a great chance to end their home league season on Sunday in great style, by beating league leaders Manchester City.
We remember last season’s final game of the season, when we were 3-0 up with just 30 minutes to play against West Brom, but ended up conceding a goal in stoppage time to draw 3-3 – and that was a huge disappointment and cost Newcastle 3 places in the league table.
That was terrible and a repeat on Sunday will spoil the party for Newcastle, after what has been a phenomenal season for the Magpies.
It would be a dream come true, if Newcastle can beat City on Sunday, but we also know that City are expecting a really tough game, and we know it will be very difficult.
This is what Jonas said about the game:
“It is going to be a massive game, we know we have to be really focused for 90 minutes.”
“They have a fantastic team and squad and if they want to keep going and win the title they have to come to our place to win the game – which is not easy for any team.”
“We know what they can do and they still have to come and play very well to beat us.” “We are a very good team as well and they will know that.”
Newcastle once again have an opportunity to make massive headlines around the world on Sunday, and we’d love to know what the world wide TV audience for this game will be – it should be massive.
It’s a great chance for Newcastle to further spread the brand that is Newcastle United – and also get closer to that Champions League position, by playing somewhere near their best form and taking all 3 points.
And a win will set off a tremendous party at St. James’ Park, and in Newcastle after the game – that’s for sure.
It’s also highly likely that Newcastle owner Mike Ashley will be night clubbing in Newcastle, if the lads can only win the game – an it should be drinks all around from the Billionaire.
Howay The Lads!!
