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 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!!
