Newcastle Taking Huge Gamble If Cisse Allowed To Leave


There is news in the Chronicle today that Newcastle are thinking of offloading Senegal striker Papiss Cisse, and the news is that Borussia Monchengladbach are again discussing with Newcastle the possibility of taking Papiss Cisse in part exchange for Luuk de Jong.

Papiss Cisse – will he move on this month?

The German club have said they cannot allow their Dutch striker to move to Newcastle until they get a suitable replacement in, and taking Papiss in the other direction would be convenient.

And if Luuk does come in it would appear that Papiss would be the number three striker at the club, since Newcastle would need to play the on-loan Dutch striker, otherwise what’s the point of bringing him in on loan?

Cisse has already said a couple of things about this potential move back to Germany – he played at SC Freiburg for three seasons before joining Newcastle two years ago.

One is that he doesn’t want to play in Germany and the second is that if he does move he wants a guarantee of first team football, although not many clubs would offer him that guarantee.

Other clubs could also be interested in taking Papiss Cisse, and they include Turkish clubs Trabzonspor and Besiktas – and West Ham, although he would probably not want to go to a club fighting relegation in the Premier League.

Cisse still has three and a half years left on his five and a half year deal on Tyneside, so he will be in no hurry to move out of Newcastle, but we wonder why his stock has fallen so quickly at Newcastle?

Maybe all he needs is an extended  run in the first team, and with Loic Remy and Shola Ameobi likely to leave the club in the summer, and Luuk de Jong completely unproven in the Premier League, we think it would be a big risk if Newcastle let Cisse move on this month.

What do you think?

    exactly,, well at least until u said pardew had them playing well,, 😀 I nearly spilled me drink

    I honestly don’t believe that, not one bit

    I think it is more down to 2 things,
    -1, the great attack minded players we have
    -2, opisition on the day,

    like many have said on here, west ham where set up to contain, that’s his style, that allows us to be more free, come the 2nd half is the reel test when they came at us, we did nothing but score a great free kick 90+ mins

    v man c, we played well, without hurting them in the right zones, we scored a wonder goal that got chalked off, wrongly, and I think that clouds peoples judgment, cos make no mistake , they by far had the better goal chances

    Jail – from previous

    Well they made a comment about newcastle fielding weaker sides and Harper did say the manager was just doing what he was told.

    So not sure exactly if that means he is told to rest certain players or simply but out a weaker team or what…..but Harper did not seem impressed by the situation.

    Harper is just a bitter ex player who left because of greed and look at him now.

    I’ll agree that against man city we didn’t make many good chances, remy had a good one in the box from a diagonal ball but then again man city are very strong.

    I’d say we do set up in some games and play really well, I guess we won’t agree on that, but I genuinely think he does set them up well at times.

    but the record speaks for itself with not turning losing positions into wins and draws enough, it shows if plan A fails we do struggle….I know people say we don’t have great depth but neither will a lot of the teams we couldn’t come back against.

    I’m really 50/50 on pardew, I’d take another manager but he would have to be better, don’t want change for the sake of it, and knowing ashley they will be unlikely to get a better one.

    So in the summer we would need 4 new forwards, and also replace colo, obertan, cabs and gosling. God it’s going to be a long summer.

    There is too much stupidity in all levels above the players… so this easily can be true.

    I know how you are 50 50

    im just guessing here, so please don’t hoot me down

    but

    I reckon we have a better record both playing and score against teams in the top 6 v teams in the bottom 6, in the time pardew has been here

    Because we have been linked with so many players, I bet we will end up with gomis.

    TS,
    Very much so, I was very proud to attend his testimonial and yet another ex player expressing his concerns about the way things are done, I understand that players needed resting, but being told to drop your best defdnder this season and giving your leading GS five minutes on the pitch while sitting in eigth fifteen points or whatever from the drop is just utter disdain for the fans.

    7 points from top 6 – arsenal, city, chelsea, liverpool, spurs, everton

    12 against the bottom 6 – swansea, palace, fulham, west ham, sunderland, cardiff

    So the record doesn’t exactly stack up as you have said. But I do know what you mean.

    We are getting more points than we’d expect against the top boys…but wins against chelsea, man utd and spurs are almost cancelled out by defeats to swansea, sunderland and hull.

    We’d won 3 games we shouldn’t but lost 3 we shouldn’t….so the reward for the hard work in the big games means little as we are chucking it in against smaller teams.

    It’s like man city, smashed a lot of big sides last year but dropped daft points to teams they should beat so ended up losing the title to man utd.

    where this year arsenal have beaten all the smaller teams this year but dropped points to their rivals.

    Well I think sunderland have used the cups well this year, used them to build confidence and momentum (since poyet came in they are 9th in form side).

    This year a cup run would have been great. The only problem I had with our cup side was remy. He should have played as with cabaye injured we didn’t have a proper goal threat.

    Shearer even said this on motd the other week, said it was disappointing to see.

    I went to harpers testimonial too….brilliant night.

    Catchy and t sage

    On the top team/bottom team issue that you are discussing….
    I would like to respectfully point out that NUFC have had this problem for much longer than Pardew has been here. He is just yet another manager that has not managed to sort it out.

    Anyone ever thought about laying the blame at the players feet…?

    The quality of opposition…?

    It’s always Pardew this, Pardew that, Ashley this, Ashley that with folkon here.

    There’s11 blokes that are as if not more accountable for bad results as much as good ones.

    Why is it a risk letting him go? What exactly has he offered this season?

    If the deal is to swap him for De Jong then we can’t say there’s a risk Remy will get injured and we’ll only have Shola to play CF.

    I think it’s a sensible deal, which could suit all parties.

    It took to post 19 to mention the header on this thread????

    It wont be a risk to lose Papiss because pardwho will not play him.You lot that hate him can say what you like,but his goals record speaks for itself.If the lad is played and used properly he will score goals.Sadly he’s not one of pardwhos bum chums so like Marveaux he may as well be sold.pardwho is a stubborn man and weighed up here to a T.

    Never mind Cisse moving the thing that pisses me off about the whole De Jong move and the 8.5 million deal in the offing why wasnt that money agreed with QPR and REMY? that wed be that stupied not to put the deal in place with a price agreed before hand. Redknapp siad it himself at the time that they wanted their 8million back on him and now its gone upto 16million becoz of JFK and MA inability to do a deal before the loan and now we have to shell out 8.5million for a poor man’s Cisse in De Jong? Even Remy’s rape case considered, all taken into account the deal should have been done before ther loan took place, thats what you get when you put an inexperienced deal maker in place in JFK. For that alone he should be fired an inexcusable mistake in my book.
