Cisse Gets A Warning To Cut It Out – From Newcastle Manager

8:55 am, Saturday, August 24th, 2013 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 20 Comments

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.

Spoil sports.

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.

    He has to score first!

    think sum1 needs to have a word with pardew about how to manage a team with good players,definition of clueless is mr pardew, definition of negative is mr pardew,could go on and on

  • 3 Indian Magpie // Aug 24, 2013 at 9:02 AM

    Anyone thinks we should go for Finnbogason of Herenveen.

    He scored 2 yesterday against AJAX

  • 4 gus3232 // Aug 24, 2013 at 9:04 AM

    hahaha,pardew in chronicle saying cisse needs more service and hopefully he get more service,he should 1st try to play sum1 within less than 50 yards of him then

  • 5 geordie1892 // Aug 24, 2013 at 9:05 AM

    Maybe teach the lad the offside rule before worrying about goal celebrations. Still, fancy Cisse to grab a brace today in close game. Really think West Ham will be a tough game can see them being comfortably top 10.

    Genius by pardew! Set the team up not to score that way your only striker doesnt get booked and miss games ;-)
    If we sign Gomis i think Cisse will drop to the bench! Gomis and Remy would work well together, and Gomis and Remy would be our 2 highest earners after Coloccini, weve reportedly matched Remys wages and Gomis is on massive money in France and will be on even more if he runs his contract out

  • 7 geordie1892 // Aug 24, 2013 at 9:08 AM

    I think to get the best out of Cisse we should play him with Ben Arfa just behind

  • 8 JAMSHA // Aug 24, 2013 at 9:08 AM

    overrated just like debuchy

  • 9 jayphoto // Aug 24, 2013 at 9:11 AM

    Concerned about todays game! Allardyce always seems to have the beating of newcastle and of Pardew! Think its because we try to match them at their own game which just plays into Fat Sams hands! Like the ownership at west ham though, always seem to have the club and communities best interests at heart, would love that (not them) at Newcastle

  • 10 KayZey78 // Aug 24, 2013 at 9:14 AM

    We have players that score goals?

    I thought Pardew was talking about how we will not score any goals this season under his horrible tactics.

  • 11 geordie157 // Aug 24, 2013 at 9:18 AM

    Cisse needs a Marveaux or vuckic in the side, at the moment there is a massive gap between Cisse and midfield.

  • 12 ginola_tonic // Aug 24, 2013 at 9:19 AM

    Why the f@ck do we always look in France for players. Getting sick of it. Bargain basement crap. Grrre

  • 13 JaxtheMag // Aug 24, 2013 at 9:19 AM

    SHOLA STARTS. may be he will jump in instead.

    going to game today and not looking forward to it to be honest for a long time cannot get excited.

    Result in a funny kind of way I don’t know what I want.

    would a 1-0 win or a draw make the powers that be think ‘o everything is alright with the squad’
    OR
    a 6-0 mauling of one of the teams ‘around us make them put their hands in their pockets – doubt it.

  • 15 AaranD // Aug 24, 2013 at 9:20 AM

    The problem is that we have no ideal to strive towards. It has been this way since Pardew took over.
    Week in week out he sets the team out to match the opposition, try and make things difficult for them and hope we can nick one on the break this is so negative and does nothing but heap pressure on the players, especially with an attack minded team like ours.
    In the 5th placed season, we would actually go and have a go at teams play decent football and we were a very good counter attacking side.

    Bottom line is Pardew sets out teams to try not to lose and his mentality is severely hurting the team.

  • 16 Billythefish // Aug 24, 2013 at 9:38 AM

    Every manager sets the team up not to lose, the problem we have is Pardew does not no how to set the team up to win.
    How come fat Sam lasted 8 short months for being shit, yet mr Pardew continues to get an easy ride on match days? Maybe most fans have now just accepted we are not going anywhere soon with this regime. Sad times, at least fat Fred knew when the manager was shit and got shot. Continuity means nowt when you are served shit week in week out and the same spiel.
    Ashley and co have depressed a city. Comes to something when I’m not looking forward to the 1st home game. How times have changed.

  • 17 Marty-Toon // Aug 24, 2013 at 9:38 AM

    Thank God Jonas is out,
    That’ll give either Marveau or Gouffran a chance to give us something better
    Ben Afra behind Cisse for me too,will put them on he back foot more often if he goes with one striker
    Doom n Gloomers Ed you say,well it won’t be good if we’re beaten today at home and were already at the bottom of the table-it won’t be a nice reaction in the crowd if it happens

  • 18 musomag // Aug 24, 2013 at 9:41 AM

    The doom and gloomers are out for perfectly good reasons Ed. There is a very fine, blurred line between being optimistic and being taken for a ride at our club. Anyone who is ‘flying high’ and prepared to forget all the wrongdoings of this regime in the event of us beating West Ham is purely fickle. I love this club but hate what is being done to it as it is simply not good enough for the fans. Soul destroying.

  • 19 nufcalex // Aug 24, 2013 at 2:01 PM

    Cisse’s celebration that afternoon was dwarfed by pardews haha

  • 20 dcdick // Aug 24, 2013 at 3:52 PM
