Newcastle Striker Feeling Down


Papiss Cisse is suspended for seven games after admitting he spit at Jonny Evans in our last game at home to Manchester United.

Papiss Cisse – we wont see this for at least seven games

And in his press conference today interim head coach John Carver said the Senegal International was feeling down because everything’s that’s happened.

This is what Carver said about the 32 times capped International, who has scored 16 goals for his country:

“Papiss is down because of everything that has happened.” “He made a good statement, a proper statement and he was right to do that because there’s no place in the game for that.”

“He was provoked and did retaliate. I think one or two would have retaliated differently and got less of a ban, but he’s accepted it and the club has dealt with it in the right way.”

“He was a loss during the African Cup of Nations and he’s a loss now because Papiss is our main attacking threat.”  “But this is a chance for others to step up to the plate.”

“We’re putting out a team that is giving forwards the opportunity to score goals.”

Newcastle need to have somebody step up to the plate and we think young Ayoze Perez is probably our best bet, although it is asking a lot of the youngster, who was supposed to be playing for the Development side this season.

Manu Riviere could also come through, but he missed two sitters in our last game against the Red Devils,  but on the positive side he did earn what should have been a penalty after just 10 minutes.

John Carver is likely to play only one man up front on Sunday at Everton, and John seems to put together a side that is set up not to lose – rather than go out to win the game.

We’ll see how the lads play at Goodison Park, but we are due a good performance,  and the team has had 11 days to prepare for this one game.

How Will Newcastle Fare At Everton?

    Anyone seen that? Palace being taken over by Wall Street consortium.

    We will never find a buyer at our price, and I don’t think I can handle Pardew’s smug attitude if he gets some money behind him.

    Giving forwards the opportunity to score goals means a lot of work must have been done with Ameobi/Obertan/Sissoko/Cabella this week. Let’s hope its true.

    I doubt a new buyer would keep Pardew
    This might be perfect timing for the Silver Fox to get the England job

    A group of investors including private equity executives from Apollo Global Management and Blackstone are in late-stage discussions with the owners of the south London club, according to people familiar with the matter, report Arash Massoudi in London, Henny Sender in New York and Josh Noble in Hong Kong.

    A deal may be unveiled as soon as next week, one of these people said, cautioning that the terms were still being finalised. Crystal Palace declined to comment.

    The London Evening Standard have been running with a Palace takeover for some time. The US consortium is led by Josh Harris, a billionaire who helped found Apollo, and David Blitzer, a senior executive at Blackstone. Heavily implied that Co- Chairman Steve Parish had sold the Palace job to Pardew on the likelihood of this happening but in any event that transfer funds would be forthcoming.

    Pardew likened this outcome to the difficulties of a takeover he experienced at WHU. The claimed acquisition group has been following Crystal Palace’s progress for sometime and has been in on-and-off talks with its owners. Talks were put on hold at around the end of last year when the club changed manager to arrest a slump in form.
    Palace are a small club when compared to us but their programme “From the Boardroom ” shows just how communication to fans should be approached. The recent programm( for our game) went into elaborate detail on the transfer window and is one of the best I have seen in the P?. They had good material for visiting away fans at a time when Shola was on board. Small club with big ambition as opposed to ……….

    If you were these wealthy Americans wouldn’t your first move be to bring in a proper manager with a credible CV. Only our resident billionaire goes against that idea.

    When Mike Ashley bought NUFC he sacked Sam Allardyce and brought in Kevin Keegan the serial dummy spitter !

    The intention is that Parish will remain as Co- Chairman and that Pardew will stay. Although nothing is ever certain in football.

    Can’t argue with Charver there, like. Amazes me that Evans is still pleading his innocnece, but I’m glad to see the FA all but laughed him out of the hearing.

    The issue for me is it will be yet another club out competing us pushing us further down the hierarchy of premier league clubs.

    We are in danger of becoming regular relegation battlers (more so than we already).

    It’s not rocket science. It just requires good communication, players who are clearly committed to the cause which encourages fans to buy into the project. An ailing side can be turned round without massive investment. Palace last season were a good example.

    Look at Villa Park where fans have gone from apathy to frenzy at the prospect and realisation of a Semi Final place.

    I assume you weren’t around when Keegan “rebuilt ” our club which was in the wilderness, and made it what it is today!
    That is until Ashley started to dismantle it!

    Keegan was a spent force managerially at the second time of asking.
    Hall and Shepherd had taken to spending like the last Labour government.

    I think of you more like the blog lifeguard
    Sitting on your high chair watching over us all splashing about in the blog pool.
    Ocassionally blowing your whistle and bollocking Mr Tuff for trying to drown Welshie
    And reporting BandB to her mother for peeing in the pool

    The club has reached a level of boredom that Ashley must find extremely satisfactory. Like his sex life I would imagine.

    With our beautifully crafted -11 goal difference and our tremendous lack of ambition at the top it must be terrifically exciting to play for the club these days. Like watching paint dry while pruning the toenails. Magnificent job Ashley!

    I did do swimming lessons years ago, could never get the hang of it.
    I think they just gave up in the end, and ignored me while I flapped around like a sick seal thinking I could swim.

    Johnny C. is planning on using his tremendously exciting 5-5-0 formation tomorrow. It’s the style of football Ashley loves best. Well done Johnny C. and make sure to praise Mike for his support after the match. Beautiful.

    The Palace acquisition is all about China.
    They need a London club to become attached to, not just clubs such as Man Utd and Cardiff etc
    Arsenal, Spurs , Chelski have other owners and loyalties.
    Blackstone has I think business interests in the Far East and will use Palace as an advertising hoarding in the same way as Mike peddles.
    Palace have red stripes in their shirts so that’s half the attraction.
    Chinese investors are in love with London and Palace will become their new plaything.
