Pardew Dressed Down Cisse At Half Time Yesterday – Video

Well, would you believe it – the Daily Express is reporting that Alan Pardew dressed down Newcastle hero Papiss Cisse at half time yesterday – because he was less then pleased with the striker’s performance in the first half, especially with one chance that was not taken.

papiss cisse - I just scored fulham

Fantastic shot of Papiss Cisse after scoring sensational late winner

It was to do with that chance in the first half, when Sylvain Marveaux beautifully put the ball into the box to Papiss Cisse, who then swung his right foot and ballooned the ball over the bar, when Sylvain was all on his own in the middle of the penalty area – a huge chance lost by Newcastle in that first half yesterday.

This is what Alan Pardew told the Express:

“I don’t normally do it but I showed him a big chance we had in the first half.” “It was when he should have passed back to Sylvain Marveaux for a tap-in, to underline the composure we needed in the second half.”

“His reaction was very negative. He was so upset with himself, and I actually questioned whether it was the right thing to do.” “But then he goes and does what he did at the end of the game that no other player in our group would do.”

So to Papiss’ credit he took the criticism well, and you can see in the ten minutes or so before he scored, he was really anxious to put the ball into the back of the net – see how many time he’s involved in play in the last 10 minutes of the game yesterday.

And the way he did it – most players wouldn’t even think of doing what he did – they couldn’t do it if they tried.

Papiss chipped the ball over the Fulham defenders – and then with his second touch of the ball smashed it past the Fulham goalkeeper and into the back of the net – and it looked like it was even before the ball bounced – an unbelievable piece of skill from our Senegal striker.

We don’t think Alan dressed him down at the end of the game. 😀

A fantastic day yesterday for Newcastle fans – it’s what we dream of.

Here’s yet another look at that goal yesterday.

    If i were a manager, I’d have probably done the same thing. Was such an easy pass back to Marv who would have been one on one with the keeper, yet he chose to go for the spectacular and fluffed it up.

    Cisse is quite greedy but that is understandable. He feeds off scraps most of the time. I seen a few games this season when Cisse didn’t have 1 clean pass put to him in the whole game. That would be frustrating for any striker. Ba never passed the ball to him either when he was wide open.

    A little bit of “research” on Aubameyang from Mercato365.
    Gist is there are apparently loads of clubs interested in him and he has supposedly stated his preference is to play in the PL.
    (got to get a snipe in here -oh I cannot find a team called Roma in the Premier League).
    Bottom line is we will not know what he intends until the summer.

    Have got to say I thought Papiss worked really well the last few games, he is a tryer, cannot ask for more. When strolla came on my heart sank, said to my better half, ” he’ll fall over three or four times, be offside the same and pull twice as many faces after he fouls someone. Was’nt far wrong then. Glad to see A.C got a run out, no not the lanky useless git the little good un.

    Although Cisse’s work rate has improved and he scores dramatic late winners which is always fun, but his over all game is still a little short of where we’d need it to be. It’s worth keeping him on the pitch for moments of genius like that but he seems to want to be a scorer of great goals…not a scorer of many goals which makes me think we really need this 20 goal a season man to loft us up to the area of the league we all feel we belong.

    No matter what your opinion on Pardew he seems to be getting the reaction we need from our players when we need it and that is the MOST important thing.

    I loved the twin celebrations of Pardew and Cisse at the end of that game.

    A great memory to have of the moment that likely safe-guarded our season-fantastic. 😀

    Yeah Cisse goes offside 3 or 4 times in a game. I love Cisse but don’t think he’s that clever. He would shine more with a strong, tall partner. If he could only be a bit more composed in front of goal, he’d see that simple pass, or little dink over the keeper. Still, the guy has guven me a lot of great memories 🙂

    It’s a fine line between being instinctive
    and takin g the time to look up and see what’s around you
    and then maybe missing the chance.
    Fair play to Papiss who kept totally motivated
    right to the end.
    And scored the goal that mattered.

    Easy to be critical with hindsight.

    Outside the box –

    Whilst I agree another Cb is needed, I think mote credit should be given to Steve Taylor. He and yanga are forging an awesome partnership!

    I wouldn’t trade him for anyone, his goal against Chelsea is my all time favourite. I just think he makes the wrong choice now and then.

    Cisse is an enigma, a wonderfully frustrating player, he makes you want to tear your hair out and jump for joy nearly within seconds of each other.

    I think the introduction of a new striker could motivate him further, look up more, stop the spectacular and think that sometimes it’s better to drive the ball low unspectacularly into the bottom corner than dip down and wrap it top bag.

    He’re hoping anyway.

    Does anyone else think Cisse’s recent form is down to Marveaux ? . I realy think Papiss enjoys playing with him and they seem to have a good understanding of eachother.

    Our current strongest team IMO is

    I’ve been very impressed with Marveaux in recent weeks, there have been times when he’s seemed disinterested but whatever Pardew has been saying to him has seemed to have worked, he’s working harder and without HBA on the pitch only he and Cabaye seem capable of picking out those nice subtle passes that can unlock a defence.

    If Cisse worked with Marveaux more (the pass back for the tap in as an example) they could have an even better working partnership

    Also, I think choosing Colo for any line up from now on is a fairly moot point, I expect him to play one of the last home games purely as a ceremonial good bye to the fans but I think we’ve effectively saw the last from him, which is actually quite upsetting as I type that.

    BPC – I think Marveaux has been the most creative player over the last few weeks. He is continually looking for the through ball to Cisse. I’ve noticed in the last few games -he is running across field continually looking for a through ball -if it’s not on he waits. Played very well the last couple of weeks.

    @ Darkside

    Don’t give up hope yet 🙂 . Maybe his injury was not as serious as first thought and they let him have a “vacation” bacj to San Lorenzo to clear his head and sort out his problems. I love Taylor to bits but until he plays for more than a year straight wothout a serious injury we can’t count on him fully IMO. Collo’s composure on the ball has been seriously missed at times this season and as long as we don’t play a high line he is one of the best CB’s in the Prem.

    It’s such a shame that marv goes missing most games cos he has the potential to be one of the best. Our creativity is certainly limited without him. Can’t wait to see him and benny playing together ( if pards has the balls to play th together)

    Lads, news going around that Benny may get a run out against the scum.

    Would you’s have come on for last 15 or so?

    Me personally, I would bring him on last 15 against Benfica see how he is there then assess him for the mackem game

    Cisse is mint, what a striker Toon have in him!

    I love local lads to come through the system, but I’ve got to admit that young Adam Campbell is nowhere near Premiership standard yet.

    Every time he comes on he looks out of dept and Toon tend to loose momentum – he should be loaned out rather than played. Maybe he’ll be good enough one day – so far he’s not!

    surprised cisse getting slating …he is best striker at club at minute and with a little more composure as he gets older will imo be the best for along time…for the last ten mins on sun he never stopped chasing and his attitude is spot on ….give him a break..

    Whilst Germany invested, subsidized and rebuilt their manufacturing industry, Thatcher single handedly ruined ours – result that in 2013 Germany has the strongest economy in Europe built on manufacturing, Britain loses its triple AAA credit rating as country is reliant on financial sector
    You can add to that the deaths of thousands fighting a needless war fought to boost her flagging popularity
    Her insistence on trickle down economics by giving tax cuts to the rich in the idea that despite all past evidence and economists citing the opposite they would spend all thier extra cash and therefore boost productivity which in turn would boost the economy – obviously the opposite happened where the rich squirreled money into offshore accounts etc and the poor got poorer
    her care in the community ideas, poll tax the list goes on and on
    Even the take on the unions which had also been fought by Wilson, Callaghan and Heath ended up in a me or them fight which ultimately ruined the country for years
