Brilliant Late Cisse Double Rescues Newcastle – And Pardew


Newcastle were 2-0 down in this game after 72 minutes, and it looked like this could be the very last game for Newcastle manager as fans were shouting Taxi For Pardew – but then Papiss Cisse showed what a terrific goalscorer he can be with two late goals – and Papiss showed the rest of the forwards how to put the ball into the back of the net today.

Papiss Cisse today – his two late goals saved Newcastle

Newcastle looked down and out at 2-0 down  when Papiss Cisse was brought on after 69 minutes for Manu Riviere – who never looked like scoring this afternoon.

Papiss was back from his injury lay off with a broken knee cap, and would you believe it but he scored two great goals to bring Newcastle level after 88 minutes.

That rescued Newcastle and possibly manager Pardew as the lads got a 2-2 draw.

It was a fairly easy first half for Newcastle, who looked solid at the back today, and much better than in the last two games, but we missed a couple of chances that fell to Riviere and Cabella.

Newcastle looked well organized going forward, but there was simply no threat up front – and we don’t seem to have the players who can put the ball in the back of the net at the moment.

But then after just three minutes of the second half,  Jelavic put Hull ahead with maybe Hull’s first shot of the game, as Jelavic rifled home in brilliant style past Krul from a right wing ball into him.

And then after 68 minutes, as Newcastle pushed forward, Hull scored another great goal through Diame – his second in two games as he smashed the ball past Krul from outside the penalty area. – but he was given far too much space and time to shoot by the Newcastle defense.

Cisse was immediately brought on in place of the ineffective Riviere, and within four minutes of coming on he had scored his first goal of the season.

Cheick Tiote, who had a very good game today but worryingly limped off near the end,  had a good run forward and  put Cisse through  in the inside right position , and Cisse rifled the ball home past the goalkeeper with the ball going just inside the near post – a brilliant opportunist goal from the Senegal striker.

And then after 86 minutes with the game looking out of Newcastle’s reach, a left wing cross came over and Yoan Gouffran did well to head it down along the six yard line, and Papiss Cisse nipped in to put the ball into the back of the net and he was just onside.

papiss cisse thanks mate hull

Papiss Cisse scores – thanks mate!!

And Newcastle pushed for the winner in the five minutes of added time, but didn’t have any luck.

So it’s one point and only 3 points from the first five games for Newcastle.

Papiss Cisse has already equalled the number of Premier League goals he scored last season in 24 appearances – he scored two today in just 21 minutes of normal time.

But our record for the last 13 league games is still very poor, one win and three draws – so that’s 6 points from a possible 39 points played for – and that’s just 18 points over a 38 game season.

Newcastle looked down and out after 72 minutes, and the big positive coming out of this game is how the lads fought back – and the fact that Cisse showed us how good he can be when he’s on song.

And Cisse must start next Saturday at Stoke – and in fact if he had started this game, we may well have won this game.

But that’s all in retrospect.

It was a good point but all the old failings were still there in not being able to score – until Papiss Cisse came on.

But those late goals will probably see Alan Pardew still manager for next week’s trip to Stoke – which will be a tough test – and we wonder how bad Cheick Tiote’s injury is?

    Hull were abysmal today and still could have won it. As said just more paper over the cracks. Nice to see Cisse look like a proper striker though.

    it was a very very difficult atmostphere to play in. getting a 2-2 draw in that kind of situation the entire club was in is a huge huge result and shows the players do have faith in the manager and are showing pride for the shirt.

    just look at manchester united under moyes. the players just rolled over and nailed moyes in the coffin.

    not cisse. not tiote. not the rest in black and white.

    Pardew must still go, I can’t believe anyone who says today was a good result or that the atmosphere or conditions caused a problem. It’s almost as if our own fans are channelling pardew himself.

    A draw.
    Hull.
    2 conceded.
    At home.
    Saved by a substitute (again)

    It was just crystal palace all over again, only we never had the lead. It was crap.

    What a game!

    I like Remy Cabella i’m sure he’s gonna be a good player for Newcastle. Also massive game from Colo and Tiote today. I would like to see Dummet play in the CB position in the league cup, I think he will play better there.

    Mr T had an amazing game today. Cisse who does he think he is? Loic remy? Haha would have accepted a loss today if pardew would get the boot but as a fan when there is a decent result, the passion overuns the hate eh lads. Cisse might just be the lifeline pardew needs

    Well said.

    I was thinking before he came on. Cisse can get goals in this team. Riv snatched at chances cisse used to out away with ease.

    I’m happy we saw improvement. We passed well, showed determination to get back into the game, gouff ran looked more lively and more of a threat and we saw more from Cabella who seemed to show signs of getting to grips with the leagues pace and physicality.

    For all the stick colo and willo are getting Janmaat is main offender for me. Always gets caught up field.

    2 great hull goals unlocked us.

    It’s a platform to build on.

    Ok. My shortest comment ever I think.

    Its only a matter of time. Hull have been playing well, but only playing well for a Hull team, lets not forget. This does not suggest a steady climb up the table. Its business as usual, dont expect a string of wins against decent opposition. How anyone can be optimistic and even ecstatic about clwibg a home draw againt Hull is beyond belief we are NUFC!

    semi decent performance but we still drew to hull city at home, just not good enough, this result will no doubt save his bacon atleast one more week.

    I very much doubt ashley will sack him now but to be fair i doubt he would be sacked if we lost 2-0, sacking him will make the fans happy mike ashley wont allow that to happen

    daztoon i’m pretty sure you know our form so wat did you expect if we’d scored the winner in the last minute many on here including you would still be saying we should have scored more or we played shit and we were lucky

    the facts are they scored 2 great goals after a mistake and a worldie and we played well throughout the game and if cisse was fit to start and had the rivi chances we would have won

    amazing wat 2 experienced and best players do to a team including SUPPORT!!!

    yea. duh its ONE half decent performance. i merely said the players did not roll over and rose to the occasion for pardew and heed his call. evident by players running to pardew after the equalizer.

    and pardew showed great resilience by standing up at his area and facing the full force of the crowd.

    it was a very difficult situation where any other club would have just rolled over after going 2-0 down. just look at manu last results under moyes. they just gave up.

    this is a good start. pardew MUST build on this lifeline given and MUST NOT LOSE his next 2 away games. this is his chance to build momentum get some draws or wins and kick on.

    We’re fighting tooth and nail
    At home
    For a draw
    Against Hull……..

    Still 18th in the league, still got a useless c**t in charge and still going nowhere

    414ilovetoon8788 // Sep 20, 2014 at 5:07 PM

    We should have no problem avoiding relegation with this type of performance.

    well done pardew and to the players who stood up for him. really impressed with pardew’s character and defiant attitude. but his 93rd min sub is quite rubbish.

    I’m sorry what?
    No problem avoiding relegation? Based on what? 15 minutes? We were f**king awful, not a shot on target in the first half, no cohesion, no rhythm, no cutting edge
    And tough to get a result in that atmosphere? Wtf are you on about? The team were roared on for the full 90?

    Not happy with a draw, considering we had to chase. Yeah yeah decent fight back for once but if we were not so shoddy at the back and light on strikers ( ok cisse has found his boots but we coldnt score before he came on) we actually could have won. Pardew should still be in thr same boat. He started negatively as usual and imo it had cost us 2 points.

    I’m still fearful against more dominant opposition.

    Hull are capable of playing well and are slowly building a decent side. And we showed we can dominate these teams.

    But what about more aggressive high pressing teams. Our off the ball work has always been something of a shortfall. We’ve always been capable of playing well when teams back off.

    What happened to the ‘mass’ protest today. Slightly dissapointed. Well at least one thing has been confirmed… Pards will not be fired due to Cissé saving the day for him/us. It is a shame… Protests will surely die out now due to some deluded fans suggesting that the result today was great. I mean, is that what our expectations are now ?
    I see Pards stuck with the same formation, I am actually baffled to the fact that he hasnt realised that riviere isnt a lone striker.
    Only posative was Cissé and tiote. NOT the result.

    Pardew got a fairly easy ride today. He was able to brave the sideline throughout. I got to my seat 2 minutes late after bombing up from Huddersfield so didn’t get the pre match atmosphere. Didn’t see any protests afterwards but I left straightaway.

    About Dummet, he is not as bad as everyone makes him to be, and for Haidara he is not as good as everyone makes him to be. Imo they are both not bad players they just are not good, championship level maybe. This just shows how desperately we need santoon

    LGFUAD – Im surprised you havent spotted that its always been a feature of Pardews teams to have a hopelessly exposed `attacking` fb. Simpson, santon, debuchy, dummett (!) – theyve all lost us countless points being caught forward. Ryan Taylor seemedto do ok because he didnt dare go too far ( not a natural fb) and had the tireless jonas in front to protect him. Santon was very poor going forward and without jonas in front he has lost his way. Dummett is just awful.

    Sorry mate but every season we have that statement “it’s a platform to build on”
    We’ve had a platform to build on countless times and failed numerous times
    He should not be managing this team and clawing back a draw at home to a team still new to the league is not a positive step

    As for Goofy, I’m sorry but the lad ran around like a headless chicken
