Papiss Cisse Facing Three Match Ban


The TV commentators made a really big deal when Papiss Cisse was seen to elbow Seamus Coleman in the face before a corner after about 29 minutes of the game today – and by the end of the game they had already decided that we will not see Papiss Cisse for a while,  because he will be given a three match ban by the FA — which is allowed under the rules if none of the four officials saw the incident.

Papiss Cisse elbowing Coleman viciously

Many of the TV pundits are now demanding that Papiss Cisse get a three match ban, and he could (should) have been sent off for violent conduct.

This is what Everton manager Roberto Martinez said after the game about whether Cisse should have stayed on the pitch:

“No he shouldn’t.” “I don’t want to see players sent off for different rules or the laws of the game, but it’s unacceptable that action from Papiss Cisse.”

“You don’t want to see that on a football pitch. That shouldn’t be allowed. Two players fighting for their position in a dead ball situation and you end up deciding to take the law by elbowing a fellow professional.”

“It’s unacceptable. That should have been a red card. Actions like that should not be allowed on the football pitch.”

There are only a couple of games that Papiss  may miss – the New Years day game at home to Burnley and the FA Cup tie at Leicester two days later – before he’s off to the African Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea.

Maybe we can bring young Adam Armstrong in for those games, and we also have Manu Riviere, who unfortunately missed a sitter in stoppage time.

It was an Ayoze Perez shot that hit the post and ricocheted to him three yards out in front of the goal, but it bounced off the Frenchman past the post for a goal kick.

Manu needs a goal to get his confidence up – but 21 year-old Ayoze Perez is full of confidence and scored his 5th Premier League goal of the season today, and  again looked very sharp.

We could see Adam and Ayoze start on Thursday if Papiss is banned.

Comments welcome.

    Worst performance by a Martinez side against us by some distance. Starting to sound like Pardew there, Roberto.

    The most excited i’ve been for the past three years re NUFC:

    Now, re these AP to Palace rumours 🙂

    Please let this be true!

    Out of Intrest am I the only one that’s worried shocked perplexed outraged puzzled or just can’t understand how a 2nd division Spanish KID is head and shoulders above any of Pardews puppets.

    Ridiculous that a kid from no where is better than pros with Pardews pros with his guidance.

    OP

    who are these pardew puppets, as far as i’m aware players like cabbella, rivere and gouffran were all chosen by carr as well.

    the ones I think pardew choosen were colback and obatan, pardew does say in all his interviews, “he wants to sign English players”.

    that seems a bit rich making that comparison.

    Perez is as close to prodigal as we’ve had in ages. Let’s enjoy him while he’s still here and not ponder crap like that.

    On another note,

    would anyone else be sad to see the back of Cisse in the completely hypothetical scenario he were immediately replaced? And not for that elbow either. He is one of the most erratic waste’s of a spot on a starting 11 I have seen in so long.

    The reason why pardew didn’t do an interview today is because he was to busy in Ashley’s office going over a new contract, well done pardew.

    opti aye but pardew onley hinders players!
    like mym or ben arfa it has nothing to do with actual talent or work rate in this league its all pardews fault

    perez obviously has something on pardew because it can’t be because he has both them talents at the same time

    Souness said that the ref saw the Cisse incident and as he decided not to take any action ( because he failed to award the penalty for manhandling Cisse ) then the matter is closed. If the ref changes his report to suit commentator pressure then there is something seriously wrong and that should be investigated by the FA . Martinez has a short attention span and selective memory as he has presided over many nasty incidents, so is now displaying the “woe is me” defence of a failed manager. Mourinho and Fabregas have effectively accused the ref in the Chelsea game of cheating and being incompetent so we can expect the FA to throw the book at them – can’t we ?!

    Tiote and Willo both with an assist each today and Colback on the scoresheet. Tiote even put the ball in after the short bloody corner that led to the assist from Willo.

    I think from all players especially Tiote deserves extra credit for his better than usual performance today.

    Cisse also had better than usual performance in his overall game today. Sissoko should have done better when he was set up by Cisse.

    And Perez was yet again brilliant.

    Cisse is incapable of making an accurate pass. Incapable of any semblance to hold-up play. Incapable of properly running the channels. Or staying onside.

    For as many goals as he scores, he should score so many more. I know his record is decent, but if it were him vs. a Remy type player (who i thought flattered to deceive in many respects as well), i’d take Remy any day of the week

    Perez was a good signing, apparently wanted by real and won an award in Spain for last season.

    Worry? To the contrary, it means Carr is still on his game

    Personally I thought Tiote was poor, as he has been for sometime.

    Colback too I thought had a below par performance by his own standards, even with the goal.

    Mid 3 of Colback, Abeid and Sissoko any day. even with tiote fit

    but how do you explain Riviere? Anita? Cabella? Ferreya? Or our inane pursuit of the hapless Modibo Maiga? Or Mayuka? Or his (fair credit to AP on this one) overriding Pardew on signing Adam Lallana because Carr said he’d never be PL quality (said in sit down back in 2012)?

    For all Carr has done, he’s far from infallible.

    Evening gents – I’m just back from the match. It appeared to me that Everton played the prettier football without a cutting edge whereas we were more direct and threatening. However reading posts on here on TV we looked the better team and Everton were poor!

    He got out of jail again today after a terrible start, it shows that at least he does have the players onside, if they really wanted rid of him they’d just give up. I can’t find anything about him leaving, my parents said they’d heard something on the news when I came to pick the bairns up ???

    i’ve always pretty much been a critic of cisse over the past season and half if not all his career here as it started with demba ba imo being a hell of a lot better striker so i didnt agree with him having to make way and play on the wing in order for cisse to play so what better time for me to kick the lad when he’s down right ?

    unfortunatly i’m going to go the other way on this occasion and stick up for the lad !
    he played as good as i’ve seen him play tbh ! i dont believe he has a bad bone in his body as he’s far to dumb and happy to be angry at anyone and actually elbow them on purpose !
    his all round play and movement was great today and even his passing and first touch which mostly i could do better with my eyes closed he was good at today !

    when he came off and river came on the class difference between the 2 of them was miles apart so credit from me where its due.

    Making a big deal of it hahaha

    It was a blatant elbow and he didn’t just do it once. He was lucky enough that the Everton players didn’t make a massive deal out of it.So he got away with it.

    Definitely a 3 game ban all day long

    Credit where credit is due at least we turned up today and actually tried, even if it was against a poor Everton side.

    I’m not going to get carried away we’ve been terrible for the previous few games so imo we have a long way to go before I can say we have a good team.
    I think Perez is class and if Aarons and Obertan were fit we would definitely be a more threatening side.
