This Player Can Keep Newcastle In The Premier League


Newcastle will play their first game in two weeks on Saturday at home to Leicester City, and will be hoping to record their first win of the season and move a couple of places up the table from our current 3rd bottom position.

Papiss Cisse in action at Swansea – two good goals

Papiss Cisse is the current wearer of the Newcastle number 9 jersey,  that has been worn by some of our greatest ever strikers, including probably the best two ever – Jackie Milburn and Alan Shearer.

So Alan Shearer knows all about what it’s like to wear the jersey,  and is Newcastle’s record goalscorer with 206 goals in 404 appearances for the Magpies during his fantastic career.

Papiss Cisse is in action for Senegal tonight in the African Cup of Nations, so we hope he comes through that game unscathed,  and then he will be returning to training on Friday, for the very important game against Leicester City on Saturday.

This is what Alan has told the Chronicle about our current number 9:

“It’s good to see him back amongst the goals.” “He had a poor season last year.” “We know he can score them.”

“The one thing is keeping him fit and the other is keep on giving him chances.” “They are the two things we must try to do,  because at the minute he looks like the only one who can score us goals.”

Cisse has already scored more Premier League goals this season than he did in the whole of last season.

Last season he scored two league goals in 24 appearances,  and the Senegal man already has four goals in just three league appearances this season, so we are hoping this can turn out to be a great season for Papiss.

With Loic Remy having gone, Papiss is back as our main striker, and it could be that his ability to score the goals is the thing that can keep us in the Premier League this season, with very few other players showing they can score the goals for us.

Here’s hoping.

    Shows where we are as a club when we are relying on someone who has been so inconsistent here.

    “It’s good to see him back amongst the goals.” “He had a poor season last year.” “We know he can score them.”

    Aye because if he wasn’t played on the right wing he was on the bench to accommodate Loic Remy.

    “The one thing is keeping him fit and the other is keep on giving him chances.” “They are the two things we must try to do, because at the minute he looks like the only one who can score us goals.”

    Try setting the team up to attack and the chances will come you fool.

    Tevez also went 13 games without scoring at West Ham, and they too had broken all kinds of awful game records.

    This kind of mess follows Pardew wherever he goes. Ashley wasn’t at the other clubs.

    Pardew out, Ashley out.

    Don’t really care anymore, I turn up and bored out my skull watching some of the worst football in the prem, go home in a bad mood.

    Pards two year record is a disgrace, have a look at the sackpardew.com

    P W D L F A GD P
    83 26 16 41 90 121 -46 94

    That puts us near the bottom of the two year table, with the second lowest goals scored, the most goals against, the most losses and obviously the worst goal difference in the league.

    Pards had Cabaye for at least half of this period along with others he’s now citing as the reason for us currently not doing so well..

    It’s basically his tactics and coaching ( he’s said himself they work on defence 4 days a week).

    The players/staff currently being rolled out in defence of him are a joke and obviously scared for their jobs, Beardsley may have been a great player but he’s been pushed from youth, academy, ball boy etc in his coaching role and to be honest has shown no aptitude for this position and keeps his job purely as an ex geordie legend

    Two of our best players, Cisse & Tiote, play tonight and then have to travel back from Africa – hard to see them being in top form on Saturday 🙁
