This Man Can Get Us The Win We Need At QPR

Papiss Cisse got a good 20 minutes today in the vital 1-1 draw at home to West Brom,  and he no longer has the limp he had earlier this season, due to that pin in his knee,  so the operation he had after he was suspended against Manchester United in early March, seems to have done the trick.

And Papiss has come through that 20 minutes with no ill effects it seems,  and it’s obvious Cisse wants to pay back the club after he stupidly got himself suspended for seven games and boy – have we missed him and his goals – and he’s still the top goalscorer this season with 11 goals after only 21 appearances.

Papiss Cisse in action today

But all credit to young Ayoze Perez, who scored  another goal this afternoon to get a vital point, and that’s now 7 premier league goals for the 21 year-old this season.

It’s a very tough baptism for this youngster, but if we do survive the drop there’s no way this young striker should be leaving Newcastle.

Papiss had some good news for Newcastle fans tonight – this is what the top Senegal striker had to say:

“I’m happy to be back playing, it has been a long time. We have stopped losing.” “It may not be massive but it is very important for the gaffer and the players and fans. We had to stop losing.”

“We must now keep this going and get something at QPR.” “Seriously, I feel very good. My running feels good. I need to work all week because this week I only trained two days with the team.”

“If I have the whole week I will be fine.”

One thing John Carver and the medics have to do is to ensure none of our players pick up any injuries in training in the coming week – the training field injuries have helped to decimate the squad all season.

We hope Papiss Cisse has a good week in training, and that being the case there’s no reason he couldn’t even start against QPR,  and a win in that game could even make us safe next Saturday night.

    I wasn’t going to but on a sucker for punishment, and it was punishing after the earlier result and watching other scores.

    I’ve always rated Cisse even when others dismissed him, get it to him in the box and he’ll score. Not suited as a hold up striker and our midfield is to slow to play the quick through balls he thrives on.

    If we got him and SDJ on the pitch I think they’d link up well.

    We are in a sorry state these days, the hierarchy at the club have been licking their wounds, but that was never going to be good enough.

    The club needed to heal, they need to change their philosophy on how the club should be run.

    We need a new fit for purpose manager (not a head coach), we need a fit for purpose MD, and a descent DoF.

    Thing is we needed them back in January, now it’s all just a little too late.

    If it is the fizzy pop league for us, then we all need to thank Ashley properly, if he ever shows his fat fusking face up here again.

    Seriously cisse only scores when the chances are presented and since we create nothing these days he’ll be as useful as are Heskey (Rivière), ill just go along with the hope that he might do something that motivates those around him.

    I was really fearful today especially when the other results were going against us. However we showed a bit of character today and got stuck in. Burnley did us a massive favour today as on paper this was Hull’s ‘easiest’ game. I thought Anita had a cracking game he got stuck in with some good defensive tackles and also got forward to get in some good crosses.

    firebug…No surprise Ashley didn’t turn up. Maybe he was sat out with the crowd? Stood with the fans during the clubs hour of need, when it needed all of our help. Not mine obviously 🙂

    martoon…Agreed. Burnley did us a massive favour.

    Much better performance today. Yes we got very lucky with the Hull result, but so what, It was long overdue.

    Please stop playing Ryan Taylor centre midfield though. We need legs and energy in midfield, and he’s completely goosed sadly.

    Jack Colback tries but he wastes the ball and awful lot. Cabella was better today but needs to deliver end product. Ryan Taylor is finished. Rivière out.
