Papiss Cisse Could Leave Newcastle In January


New Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew may come after his former striker at Newcastle – Papiss Cisse – who is currently on duty for Senegal at the African Cup of Nations.

Papiss Cisse – could leave Newcastle in January

Papiss Cisse is already in demand since Swansea may come after him to replace the departed Wilfried Bony, who was recently signed by Manchester City for £29M.

Mike Ashley has already helped Crystal Palace out this season, by allowing Alan Pardew to leave Newcastle and join them for about £4M, and Alan’s made a good start to his career at Palace by winning his first three games in charge including two league games.

They had 17 points when he joined so he’s already got in two games just less than a third of the points they got from their previous 20 games.

On the other hand Newcastle – now without a manager since Pardew left – have lost the last three games including two league games, and now Palace are only 4 points behind us with a better goal difference.

What’s the chances they will finish above us in the league this season?

Cisse has already said last week that he would consider leaving Newcastle:

“I focus on the Africa Cup of Nations, then we will see about my future with Newcastle,” “We talk about a lot of clubs, Swansea and others.”

It would not surprise us too much if Mike Ashley allowed Papiss Cisse to leave Newcastle in January – but only if he gets a ridiculous fee for him – and maybe Swansea have the money for that – but we doubt Palace will have the requisite funds.

And it seems like Moussa Sissoko could also leave Newcastle in January, and he has already issued a come and get me plea to Arsenal saying that he wants to play for a bigger club then Newcastle at some time in his career – and by  the way Arsenal were the club of his dreams when he was a youngster.

The way Ashley runs Newcastle it’s hard to blame players who want to leave the club – and Mike seems to be OK with letting them leave, just as long as he gets the big money for them.

What has really crystallized since Alan Pardew left the club is that he was never the real problem – Mike Ashley is the real problem at Newcastle – and whatever person takes the head coach job on Tyneside – he is likely to be just as shackled as Alan Pardew was.

It’s just a terrible way to run a football club, and it’s why Newcastle will never be successful while Mike Ashley is the owner.

That’s a fact,  or as Al Gore used to say – it’s an inconvenient truth.

    Even our favorite son now coming to kick when we are down. Let’s see how Ashley handles this one. He needs to sell him at £10M + to make a profit on him or else it’s not good business.

    we such an easy target for lazy jurnos and such is the situation here that most believe it

    firstly pards will get linked with a lot of our players ex managers do
    if pards had so much faith in cisse he would have played him last season with remy in the ba role he didn’t he benched him story is junk

    ok we all know we will sell if the price is right but we are not the only club.
    for every reason that a top club would want sissoko there are just as many that would put them of
    he is good for us in spells but he is far from being a champions league player at the moment

    WE should be able to get a better replacement if he sells for £10M. Has Parish given Pards sufficient funds to buy him for that.
    We’ll probably bring Shoela back for nowt

    southampton – everyone
    swansea – allen, bony
    liverpool – suarez
    arsneal – nasri, toure, van persie, fabregas, adeyor
    spurs – carrick, modric, bale
    man utd – ronaldo
    chelsea – luiz

    all teams do it like you say

    Perhaps we’d get Danny Ings for £8m or Charlie Austin. All media speculation.

    Burnley won’t sell ings now….rather lose him on a free in the summer as he is the only thing giving them a chance to get the best part of 100mil next season

    The selling is not an issue for me, there are 2 issues around that

    1. sell at the wrong time, why sell mid season when you don’t need to (ie cabaye)

    2. you need to replace the players if you sell them right away, sometimes you need ready made/experience not potential, we don’t have the balance

    yeh it was a steal by chelsea really, terrible defender like you say

    as for southampton I agree, always nice to see a new team make the top 4, they play the game the right way, run the club properly and have the best youth academy in the country

    imagine if they still had oxlaide chamberlain, walcott and bale

    I did like his interview, his sky interview was good, he said that ashley needs to appoint somebody now, whether it’s him or not

    he clearly loves the club, not saying that is enough to give him a job, but nice to see

    I really hope your right TS but I’m just trying to be realistic & not pessimistic. Yes Burnley do need Ings but if Ashley were there he would cash in on him rather than let him go for nowt in the summer that’s the animal he is. Just hope it’s not going to be another Carroll, BA, Cabaye, Remy scenario but his past record says it will be whether it be just Sissoko or others as well

    Correct me if I am wrong but so far, we havent sold anyone.

    As far as I am aware, Ashley has put 20 to 25 million on both Sissoko and Cisse heads and noone has actually come sniffing around yet.

    We all know Ashley is a tough negotiator and with PSG dropping out of the running for Sissoko, I cant see Wenger coming anywhere near meeting the asking price for him so he will be stuck with us for the time being.

    Cisse is interesting. To sell him, we would HAVE to have a replacement lined up or else we are definitely in a relegation battle without our top scorer.

    Exactly, what annoys me is that our club claim to have spent 25mil on this new academy, yet they never hit the criteria before to have top academy status…..little things like that, why have a new facility we aren’t up to scratch with coaching, etc,

    Everything done, whether truthful or not, creates suspicion as it’s rare for Ashley to do something to benefit the club.

    The sooner we are rid of him the better.

    CARVER OUT OF THE RUNNING

    Following Newcastle’s 2-1 defeat to Southampton temporary manager John Carver thinks he’s not done enough to land the job on a full-time basis. Under Carver’s watch, Newcastle have taken just one point from four games.

    Asked whether he is now out of the running for the job, Carver said: “Absolutely. You’ve got to win football matches. Although we played well for 45 minutes against Burnley and Chelsea, unfortunately we didn’t quite have the cutting edge in the final third.  

    “I know I can do the job. I know the work we’ve done and the way we’ve played. We’ve come up against a side third in the Premier League so it’s no disgrace. I thought we dominated the game but we’ve just got to have more ambition in the final third.”

    I’ve always liked Carver Sage but don’t think he’s good enough to be our head coach.I like the idea of a Geordie management team but they would never be allowed to manage. There is always too much speculation with the Toon over everything. We jump from crisis to crisis. Pards was manager for 4 years but things were never settled.We are never decisive. All other teams see the urgency. The more MA waits the more he will be able to say I’ve not spent because there wasn’t a long term replacement coach in place.

    But we shouldn’t be selling our main players mid season unless we get a carroll style offer of 35mil, especially when we don’t replace them.

    It’s sad when we get to a stage where we are just grateful our best players aren’t sold instead of questioning why nobody is coming in.

    I couldn’t tell you, I think the fans aren’t united, not enough see ashley as a problem, despite the fact he has taken us down once and nearly twice, surviving by the skin of our teeth.

    I like Carver too, a lot of managers and players who have worked with him in the past speak highly of him, but probably isn’t a head coach.

    We need a manager like koeman at southampton, players want to come in and play for him.

    have they actually started the upgrades yet
    we got our cat1 status on the strength of the up grades being done

    there will always be suspicion when there is no communication
    if they say something then we know if they say nothing opinion is divided and we are one divided fan base

    we currently don’t have cat 1, which is why the club banged on about scouting local talent, they weren’t allowed to bring players in from further affield

    If I were Mike Ashley, I would think:

    There’s 8 games left at home.

    Newcastle aren’t going to be relegated or compete for Europe.

    Why would I spend on transfers? My money would be better spent in the summer.

    Even if there’s a fan revolt & SJP is half empty, what am I losing..maybe 4 million/5million

    Money better spent on a manager who can re-evaluate players, then spend in summer accordingly.

    As a fan though, it’s another season of frustration for a season that never got momentum, due to injuries etc.

    For Mike…the fans have given up on him and he probably has stopped caring too much about what fans think of him. I think one would have to.

    Sissoko to Arsenal, are you kidding me. He can’t pass, he cant hold up, he has no forward vision, he is the opposite of the intricate play that Arsenal produce. If Arsene Wenge WAS to call Sissoko it would be to to say “stay at Newcastle until some crappy French team want’s to buy you as a super sub, and even then you will end up at a Russian or Turkish club cos your a lazy f**k.

    Arsenal will never buy Moussa Sissoko…period. End of.
