Papiss Cisse Accepts Three Match Ban For Violent Conduct


Papiss Cisse has not appealed against the FA’s charge of violent conduct during the match on Sunday at St. James’ Park, when he was seen to elbow Everton’s Seamus Coleman in the face before corner was taken

Papiss Cisse – after scoring Newcastle’s first goal on Sunday

That’s probably a good decision by Papiss, because there is ample video evidence that on his third attempt,  he finally elbowed the Everton defender flush in the face.

The Senegal striker will now be banned for three matches with immediate affect, and that means he will not play for Newcastle for up to six weeks.

Papiss will jet off to the African Cup of Nations – hopefully on Sunday – so we can claim he has served two games of his ban.

The 29 year-old scored his 9th Premier League goal on Sunday in only his 13th appearance for Newcastle this season.

His absence will be a big blow to Newcastle, because he’s our top scorer and we have scored only 22 goals in the league all season,  and he has scored nine of them.

    So if you are actually physically away on international duty, you can’t count a match as a ban? Pity.

    The fa don’t like us and will make sure he serves a three match ban whilst here. Games where he is away won’t probably count and he’ll finish the ban after the tournament.

    bob lee and mick quinn are both a bit xenophobic tbh.

    i don’t gve a rat’s patudi where the manager comes from if he’s half decent and tries to play football and not bulls–t all the time.

    let’s be honest only one geordie manager has ever been good enough to go anywhere and succeed.

    Isn’t this the same as when a player’s injured whilst serving a ban? In that it still counts even though their out injured? Lots of reports saying he’ll miss burnley, Leicester and then chelski. If that’s the case then when he returns the suspension should be over, no doubt special dispensation will be made by the fa to not allow that to happen.

    Heard Senegal want their players to meet up on the 2nd but their first match isn’t till the 12-13th. 10 days is a bit naughty is it not? Hate the damn tournament.

    Has he gone yet?:-D

    Steve Bruce is definitely well on. He moves about every few years and he’s been at Hull a while and they are not doing at all as well as hoped after their little spending spree in the off season, and ofcourse he only has a few months left on his contract. Ashley may view him as an appointment that would appease the fans, and as a Geordie Youd think he largely would. He’s also done best with a limited budget. I can see it happening, but if Ashley is all about top ten, and if Pardew was essentially there as mouthpiece and motivator, then any and all appointments hereafter would be increasingly bound to flounder in quick succession. Really, the charade would be over. You might as well come clean, if you’re not going to push on and challenge.

    Will the ref who failed to give us the Penalty and book Coleman for fouling Cisse now apologise to NUFC in the same way as Mourinho has received the apology he demanded. And will Shelvey also get a three match ban for his arm swinging antics last night. He wasn’t booked or sent off so the ref must have missed it. If the ref did see it and failed to take action will the Ref now be demoted to The Championship to relearn the rules ? And Villas Delph ban has not been overturned even though it looks like he slipped in the process of a fairly rash challenge.
    The FA are nearly a bigger joke than FIFA but not quite.

    Beware… Is Pulis talking himself out of the WBA job as he wants full control of the transfer decisions which is not the WBA structure – so that would let Sherwood in to the position. Not that Pulis would get say on transfers here but come tomorrow he may still be in the Market for a job.

    Rotonda,
    If the unthinkable happens and he appoints that manc/mackem plastic Geordie Bruce I seriously don’t want to hear one word from you about what a better manager might do with the squad and how Ashleys backed him, if he does come it will be another Mashley decision, accept who’s to blame.

    Keep pushing on with the kids, spend a little more up front on transfers and get a progressive young manager in. How’s that not in Ashley’s and SDs interests. Hopefully that’s the way well go.

    I don’t really get your point mate. Pardew is a very poor manager, irrespective and regardless of Ashley. You don’t get sacked from every club you’ve been at for no reason.

    I never wanted pardew from the start so again don’t know what your point is exactly.

    Similarly Bruce will be poor whether backed by ash or not. Bruce is just another one of those mediocre breed of brit coaches

    A frank de boer or continental manager may very well succeed regardless of the owner’s financial input as this is the blueprint in Europe, ie sell and re-stock through judicious scouting.

    I have no time for ashley whatsoever re- jfk, pardew, wonga , wise etc but it’s not just about the money, money, money.

    Pardew has proved himself unable to get best out of players who had reasonable price tags. I feel the likes of bruce wouldn’t do so either.

    I guess Ian toon or any of his list of alter-egos won’t be having any more cozy insde info chats with pards any more.

    Id like to see Remi Garde given a go. Left Lyon in the summer, still regarded highly there. Think FDB is first choice but Id go for Garde 2nd.

    The worry is that for every FDB available there are 50 Phil Brown/Curbishley/Oleary type guys desperate to work for a pittance and take Ashleys crap just to get back into PL management.

    Once again we stand at a crossroads under Ashley, like every time before we didnt go down the most desired route to push on and challenge…..lets see if he bucks the trend this time.

    Ben arfa was right when he said pardew would go before him!! It’ll be interesting to see what happens from here on in at our club.

    Who is the new manager going to be then? Anyone have some insight?

    It’s gonna be Bruce. Why?

    Expressed regret at not taking the job in the past.
    Geordie.
    6 months left on contract, he’ll be on 30k a week max,
    so around only 10% of the Pardew comp needed to get him.
    Knows Graham Carr personally
    Would probably accept similar terms to what Pardew was on, even if it meant him taking a slight pay-cut in basic pay.

    I’d be willing to see how it pans out, however he is similar in style to Pardew, always better as the underdog and hitherto hasn’t been able to sustain performance in any club he’s managed and taken them to the next step when expected, usually a good 12/18 months before things start to go awry – one thing he isn’t though is obnoxious, which would be a blessing given what we’ve put up with. I just hope he could change tack and tune in to what the fans want given his origins.

    Well, the one thing about Ashley that seems clear enough is that having invested 300 million into the club and turned into a profitable enterprise over seven years we do now appear to be in a position to push on with the kids, spend a little more up front on transfers and get a progressive young manager in and become more successful, whereas in the past we may have realistically needed to throw more money at it to push on and challenge. It would seem an opportune moment, now that Pards has walked, and we have netted a little compensation to help with the transition. To be honest, it’s hard to see how Ashley, can hope to get away without pushing on one way or another. The fans have already turned twice.

    Bruce overall I would see as a side-step with a clean slate and more pleasant personality, with potential to be a progressive step if he can get on the fans wavelength.

    I’m not too worried about Cisse missing some games, he’s done alright recently but this should be the chance for Armstrong and/or hopefully Riviere to get a run a games.

    We need to get Streete back out on loan if he’s going to play, he did well at Port Vale, i still think he can become a good prem centre back.

    Good to see Santon back on the bench at the weekend, De Jong can’t be too far off now surely?

    @Rotonda

    While I was behind Pardew’s sacking or leaving over the last half year, it gets annoying when people aren’t truthful and certain things

    Cabaye, Sissoko, Perez, Debuchy, Ba, Aarons, Tiote, and Colback are all examples of cheap/free acquisitions that performed well under his system and saw their stock rise.

    I feel that an equal or lesser manager to Pardew is the only thing in our future though I hope I’m wrong. But it was the Pardew Out crowd that often liked to ignore or refute the paper thin squad and poor transfer policy that resulted from our ownership.

    you not fussed our leading goal scorer is out because we have the French “goal shy” Heskey and a 17 year old who is not ready to make the step up to play for the senior team and especially at this level. You do know that we need to score to win games?

    After what’s gone on in the last 7 years I think it’s normal to expect a kick in the balls however things are a bit different this time.

    Most think that Ashley doesn’t give a monkeys about NUFC it’s all about the money to him and I’m one of them, however there’s still fans who think he’s the best thing for us, and I’ve spoke to Rangers fans who want him there also.

    If he has any intention of getting Rangers he has to do right by us, otherwise the SFA are going to use us a reason to keep him out. Which also gets into the does he intend to sell us like it was said in summer. If he intended to sell in 18months Pardew leaving may push that foward. It’s a possibility.

    I’m hoping he goes ASAP but I don’t see him screwing us this time as it would be massively counter productive for his plans elsewhere at this moment in time, and in the future if he does sell up.

    If he gets another patsy it should be enough to unite the fans and drive the parasite out of the club.

    I’m quite optimistic change is coming for the better one way or another.

    I found this a good read, some reality for all the fantasy dreams that are posted on here. I also wish we would be more ambitious and tryfor a top spot. It’s all up to Ashley. Both comments are spot on in this article.
