We suppose we will not be seeing the joyous antics from Papiss Cisse this season that happened when he scored that dramatic added time winner against Fulham at St. James’ Park, and he ran straight up the steps into the crowd and there were some great photographs taken of the striker’s emotional celebrations.
Papiss Cisse – after scoring winner against Fulham
But football’s laws of the game are such these days are such that players cannot enjoy themselves too much on the pitch, and certainly not after scoring sensational winners, because the referee always reminds players who have celebrated too much – and they get a yellow card.
But with Newcastle having so few strikers who can put the ball into the back of the net at the moment, Alan Pardew wants to ensure Cisse, our joint top goalscorer last season with 13 total goals, doesn’t pick up too many yellow cards this season.
Cisse was only tied with Demba Ba in the goal-scoring charts last term, and Demba scored 13 Premier League goals before leaving for Chelsea in early January, and Newcastle have missed him big time ever since.
This is what Alan Pardew said today:
“I’m not allowed to do that again.” I’d love to jump in with the fans again after I’ve scored this season, but it won’t be happening.” “The manager had a word with me about it. I’d love to jump in with the fans again after I’ve scored this season, but it won’t be happening.”
We just have to hope that Newcastle show some decent form today – both in defense and in the art of scoring goals, but it’s going to be a difficult game against Sam Allardyce’s West Ham side, and the big man usually does well when he returns to Newcastle.
And it will be the old adage at Newcastle today – a win and we’ll be flying high – very high – and a defeat and we’ll be even further in the doldrums than we already are – with the doom and gloomers will be out in force.
But that’s what things are like at Newcastle – it’s either feast or famine after a game.
Let’s hope our players can bring home the bacon today.
Howay The Lads!!
