Newcastle Hero Cisse Does It Again – Late Goal Wins It


In two minutes and 37 seconds of stoppage time this afternoon (check it out), after Newcastle were pummeling Fulham with all they had to try to get the winner – but the Cottagers were defending stubbornly – it was the great Papiss Cisse who scored a fantastic individual winner for the Magpies – with the emphasis on fantastic.

papiss cisse scores fulham

Papiss Cisse – scores another dramatic late winner


And then after the goal Papiss went into the ecstatic crowd – and was completely  smothered – and the roof was blown off St. James’ Park – and it will be a moment long remembered by Newcastle fans – Papiss Cisse simply knows how to score late and vital winners in Newcastle’s colors.

Let’s put this plainly – Papiss Cisse is again the Newcastle hero.

The goal was a joy to watch as Papiss cleverly clipped the ball high over the defenders, and then smashed the ball into the net – which this lad does so well – and after the goal Alan Pardew was seen to be delirious on the sidelines, as he also went into the crowd and he was smothered by the fans – it was some scene.

You will never ever see a manager so deliriously happy as Alan Pardew was after that fantastic winner from our great Senegal striker – and Alan’s shirt was hanging out of his trousers – but he couldn’t care as one of the safety stewards – smiling away we may add – got Alan back onto the sidelines. 😀

Alan did say he was an emotional manager, but we’ve never quite  seen a manager so ecstatic as Alan Pardew was after the goal – it just shows the tremendous pressure the 51 year-old was under.

But it was a fantastic win and a wonderful individual goal from the number 9 – the Newcastle number 9 – a real hero – Papiss Cisse.

We’ll have a full report of the match out shortly, but we thought we had better get something out – it may take a little while to write the report as I make even more mistakes when I’m ecstatic. 😀

HOWAY THE LADS!!

    I’m not gonna lie, PARDEW’S celebration contrasted with CISSE’s celebration with the FANS gave me goose bumps… Reminding me of why I love this sport and NUFC in particular

    We’re scoring way too few goals under Pardew. It’s a major concern.

    Crucial win for sure this. Hopefully it gives us momentum for next week.

    Another injury though for Santon, truly cursed this season.

    Cisse won it but i’m still fed up with him. He has no brain.
    We should have beaten Benfica and be 1-0 up by HT today had Cisse had half a brain and be able to finish anything then his dinner.

    that depends … we hit the bar twice today but generally this season you are right but it that can be solved by bringing in another quality striker next season

    Shola’s substitution changed the game. Like him or not, his positioning upfront alone creates space for Cisse to exploit. Gouffran is a worker but not what this team – or Cisse – needs, i.e. another goal shy winger-come-central forward.

    Cisse is hit and miss – accept it and don’t build a team that lives and dies by such an inconsistent striker. In the summer we need to find a true no. 9 for Cisse to play off.

    He has got a football brain, as was shown last year scoring 13 out of 14 apps. It is just that he has had a difficult season and he is getting greedy, hopefully he will relax soon.

    Regarding AC, that’s because when he did get the ball he gave away possesion, happened at least twice.

    toonbrother exactly and that goes for the manager aswell
    to be honest if laudrop doesn’t move this season i can’t wait to see what his second season is like when all the expectations and injuries kick in for him if his key player in michu was injured imagine where they’d be??
    i mean we’ve only had key players injured like krul,collo,santon,debuchy,taylor,cabeye,tiote n arfa and quite a few more but jesper seems to think that we,ve had normal injuries and as many others have pointed to laudrop bein an outstanding manager!
    we’ll see next season!

    cisse isnt a lone striker and we cant build a system around him whereby he is

    we need a cf that is a creator to help assist him with these chances

    then with the likes of marv hba and cabaye behind he should do well

    on a side note, simpson and guti had good games today and cabaye a not so good game

    Anyway that was such a precious 3 points. I was starting to get worried looking at our run in. Great, great result.

    Thought Simmo played pretty well and Jonas. Not often I’ve thought that this season.

    cisse is instinctive. the problem with an instinctive striker is when they are not scoring they drop deeper and deeper to get the ball and then they are not in positions to score

    papiss just needs to stay around the box and watch the offside line more closely and he will be fine

    We score few goals because we have one class striker, a sub striker who only scores versus the Mackems and a youngster. Plus we are awful at set pieces. That needs addressing in the summer. Today we gave a team in great form a great game, we completely dominated the attempts on goal. 3 more players in the summer without losing key players and this side will be fighting for Europe again. Hopefully we can get a 2 nil win on Thursday then on to destroy the mackems. Bring them on!!! They’ll be very nervous after the loss to Chelsea. Pressure off our players. I can see this being a great match rather than a dull affair. I’d always take a draw in the derby games but I fancy us to do well now.

    i thought cisse generally played well, much better than he was a couple of months back. he should have scored 2 or 3 at least but his touch was good he made good runs n was puttin himself about a bit. to say he hasnt got a brain is ridiculous, he got himself in those positions for a reason, executed poorly yet when it mattered he banged em in

    i think cisse showed today he can be a lone striker. his touch was good, if he took his chances we’d have been 2 or 3 up and would have been very comfortable

    also even with our highly modified defense at the end we still looked more solid without santon :/

    the last 2 games cisse COULD HAVE scored 6 at least i’d call that unlucky more than anything else the fact is he’s in them positions which is only ever a good thing!!
    for anyone to say he’s crap or not fit to play for us just show them up!

    Why say we score way too few goals under Pardew. To be honest cisse had some great scoring oppurtunities and didn’t score them which he’s done all season. It’s not pardews fault.

    Pardews substitutions were brilliant today.
    Gutierez was immense down that left side he made runs similar to the ones he made when he had that great season in the championship. He was defensively sound too. Also I never realised how much strength and pace he possesses.
    Taylor was class. The ground header back to krul was heart in mouth stuff but hilarious, original and confident.
    Campbell came on and was roared on by the crowd every time he had the ball. Made a few mistakes but he’s only 18. I bet absolutely loved at the end.
    They never really threatened us Taylor and mbiwa were soo Cool. Krul rose to the challenge when it came to it. Simpson was fine but his crosses were poor. Cabaye and sissoko were great. Cabaye made some fine passes although it wasn’t one of his best games.
    Marveaux was brilliant always looked a threat and toyed with them. Anita needs a lot more strength to be a first teamer. Gouffran also played well today.
    Oh I really do love Newcastle and love the legendary runs into the crowd from our players and caring manager!
    I’m actually going to be in a good mood on a newcastle match day.
