This Newcastle Player Can Be Top Scoring Midfielder


Newcastle fans who have seen Moussa Sissoko now in five games he’s played,  have quickly realized this lad can become a top player for Newcastle and a top player in the Premier League, and to think he still has lots of time to improve at only 23 years old.

Moussa Sissoko – could become top Premier League player

Alan Pardew compares him to Frank Lampard and one player we remember way back  – the great Duncan Edwards of Manchester United – also played like Moussa, but Edwards was killed in the Munich Air crash of February, 1958, when he was still only 21 years old.

But Edwards had already played 171 times with 22 goals for Manchester United and 18 times for England with 5 goals.

This is what Newcastle manager Alan Pardew said about Moussa Sissoko:

“I think he has really fitted the bill for what I wanted in this team.” “I wanted a traditional number 10.” “Today that is more of a midfielder’s role rather than a striker’s, with the exception of Wayne Rooney and Marouane Fellaini.”

“I put Sissoko in that bracket.” “He’s got that strength and stability to get wide players into the game. Frank Lampard did it from midfield for Chelsea all those years and I’m hoping Sissoko plays that role.”

Moussa has been compared to Arsenal’s Patrick Vieira and he also plays like Yaya Toure of Manchester City – so he’s been compared to some top players in the game.

It’s not a coincidence that Newcastle’s recent revival has been because of the signing of five top French players, and Moussa has been the star man of those five so far – playing in every game for Newcastle, and he’s expected to start today against Southampton at St. James’ Park on what has been designated French Day.

In those five games Newcastle have won their first two away games of the season, and also defeated Chelsea 3-2 at home, thanks to two superb late goals from the French International.

And to think he cost only £1.8M from Toulouse.

    Sissoko is one of the best signings we have made in the last five years – he is a genuine class act and will only get better.

    With Mbiwa and Goufran, the last window has brought us some seriously talented players who could drive us on to be a regular top six, challenging for a top 4 spot.

    …I mean er yeah I agree with Carryingcoals er Shar…sorry Sissoko to be a midfield goal machine.

    With HBA Gouffran and him, I see a boatload of our goals from there providing the injury gremlin moves out of Benton.

    Expected to see Sissoko in a holding midfield role. Good spot by Pards to play him higher up. Our midfield can compete with the best around, can’t wait to see how HBA links up with the new players.

    5-0 Gouffran F/G 😉

    HWTL !!!

    From previous post
    Watched the fulham stoke game yesterday, and they should of had 9 men at full time, nzonzi just b1tch slapped ruiz infront of the ref, and huth just looked at senderos before elbowing him in the side of the head!
    Be suprised if huth didnt get retrospective punishment from the FA

    @11:

    My main concern is the fact that we have to play them in a few weeks time ! If we get a Ref who is,nt on his game like the one yesterday? We will be slaughtered and be carrying a few players with injuries again afterwards?

    Stoke are f….ing Dangerous and i don,t mean their Football !

    One thing that did please me yesterday was that the Scum lost again! Looks like QPR are gone? So much for Harry,s signing of Remy and Jenas! I don,t hate them but they deserve a better manager and owner to the two jokers that they have now?

    As for today, my prediction is 3-1 to us, barring unexplainable substitutions from Pardew?

    8geordie1892, it was the toulouse manager who gave him a more advanced role in the 1st place, he decided capoue would hold the midfield, and play moussa in a more attacking role. No pards credit due here chap, just a bit of copy and paste.
