Newcastle defender Mike Williamson has been interviewed in the papers today, and he has come out and praised Alan Pardew for the way he is dealing with the pressure he gets from the media and the local Newcastle fans, and he has also come out and praised Papiss Cisse.
Papiss Cisse in action last Saturday
The 29 year-old Senegal striker has been just great for us this season so far, with 4 goals in his first three appearances for the club, which has already equaled his goals tally for all of last season. 😀
Papiss has already said he thinks the protests against the Newcastle manager Alan Pardew are not helping the players, and Mike Williamson is hoping things can be turned around quickly – and what that means is we need to get a couple of wins in say – the next three games.
Mike has praised the Senegal striker – who seems to be on fire at Newcastle at the moment:
“Half the battle is having a guy like that who is scoring goals regularly. Papiss has been fantastic.”
“The attitude and work-rate he has shown when coming in every day during his recovery has been phenomenal and he is reaping the rewards of all the hours of hard work that people do not see.”
“He is proving a big lift for us with his performances and goals. He is exactly what we needed.”
One other thing that seems to have galvanized the players at Newcastle, is the news that Jonas Gutierrez is fighting testicular cancer and he has just undergone chemotherapy treatment after the cancer was found to have spread – and that has resulted in him losing that famous long hair of his.
Papiss in particular seems to have been inspired by the terrific fight shown by his Argentine friend, and it makes even the problems at Newcastle United pale into some insignificance in the bigger scheme of things.
The Newcastle players need to use everything they can to come out in the next two or three games and start to get some wins under their belts.
We’re sure that’s what Papiss Cisse will be doing, and we’ve already seen with this player that when he’s on form – anything is possible – and he score goals almost from anywhere at any time.
Howay The Lads!!
