Papiss Cisse scored his first goal in 11 appearances for Newcastle last night, and after missing a chance early on in the game he was set up brilliantly by Sammy Ameobi after 31 minutes, and the Senegal striker headed home in style.
Papiss Cisse – after scoring first goal of the season last night
One reason we think Alan Pardew started Cisse in the game last night, was that so he could break his duck for the season, and the manager thinks it will only do Papiss good, that he finally got on the scoring trail:
“The goals can settle a player down and hopefully it will. He’s not been as powerful as he should have been.” “I think all strikers when they’re not scoring feel like they haven’t done their job.”
“He’s always disappointed if he hasn’t scored and that was an important goal. How important, we’ll have to wait and see.” “They were two fantastic goal, both made by Sammy Ameobi”. ” Gouff’s goal was as good as I have seen at that end.”
“It was a great game and I was very impressed with both sets of supporters. “
We’ll see if Cisse can push on from here, and no doubt Alan is hoping Papiss can do that – but it’s not certain of course.
It would be good if the 28 year-old can also get among the goals next Monday night at Everton, and certainly Alan Pardew will now have some selection posers for that game.
The Leeds United supporters did their club proud last night, and they sang their heads off all game, and it seemed a great atmosphere at St. James’ Park.
Leeds United are currently 11th in the Championship this season, but they belong in the Premier League, and the sooner they can make the jump to the top tier in English football the better.
