There may be some questions about the loyalty of Demba Ba, as his agents are trying frantically to get him away from Newcastle so they can get themselves a big pay day – but another Senegal striker just loves everything about Newcastle.
Papiss Cisse – loves it at Newcastle
Papiss Cisse joined us last January so it’s coming up to almost a year on Tyneside for the Senegal striker who has scored 18 goals in 38 appearances for Newcastle, since joining us from SC Freiburg for about £9M.
We think Newcastle can pull away form the relegation zone and we’ve been impressed with the stability at the club, after we’ve been through these very difficult times, and we expect to see the Newcastle crowd tomorrow night again give our lads all the support they need to hopefully get another home win under our belts against Everton.
That would be great and just what we need right now.
This is what Papiss Cisse said today in the local press:
“ “There’s no other place I’d rather be.” The players here are very friendly and there is a lot of love.” “We play here and we have a job to do. Everything is fine.” “The best thing is we are still scoring goals.”
“This makes us confident and it is a good thing that Newcastle are still scoring but we know that things are difficult.” “We are trying our best to come back up the table.
“The main thing is we still have our confidence which is demonstrated by the goals we have scored at Old Trafford and the Emirates.” “I came here to work for the manager and give my best for the club because I love the club and I love the city.
“That’s what I am going to continue to do.” “But when the team is in a position like they are now with many injuries I work for the team.”
Cisse has been playing on the right wing in a recent 4-3-3 formation that Alan Pardew has used and got us six goals at Old Trafford and the Emirates, and it’s almost a reverse of just less than a year ago when Papiss was in the center and scoring goals for fun, and his Senegal team-mate Demba Ba was out he left side of the front three.
There’s one good thing if Demba Ba leaves Newcastle this month – this will free up Papiss to go into the center and we have a feeling this lad could have a lot of goals in him through the end of this season.
And at least this lad k=just loves playing on Tyneside, and of course the Newcastle number 9 is a hug favorite with Newcastle fans.
