These Two Players Can Win It For Newcastle

The big problem Newcastle have had this year in our road games is scoring goals,  and in seven of our nine away games we’ve lost and also failed to score in those games – so it’s good that Papiss Cisse is back for us – and 21 year-old Ayoze Perez is back scoring goals for us.

Both strikers could be huge for us in the vital two final games of the season, and the results will determine which division we play in next season – that’s how important they are.

John Carver has hailed Papiss Cisse and he’s also hopeful the 21 year-old Spanish U21 International can score some goals for us too:

“Papiss could be huge for us in these final games,” “We have to bear in mind that he was supposed to be out for 12-14 weeks but because of his personality he’s come back fitter and quicker than we thought.”

“He didn’t have any football before he played last weekend and I thought he did okay for his first bit of football for eight weeks.
“As we know, Premier League football for 90 minutes can be quite vigorous but Papiss will definitely be involved and be in a better place after a week’s training.”

“I hope Ayoze keeps scoring for us,” “He’s a young lad and what you find with younger players is they have peaks and troughs.” “He had a little dip but he’s come back again to score four or five more goals – his goal last week was a typical center-forward’s finish, reacting to a free-kick.”

“I think we expected to have him out on loan for the majority of the season but instead he’s been one of our main strikers and he’s embraced that – I think he’s done a great job for us.”

It’s now up top the players to prove that we are good enough to play in the Premier League next season and if we can survive three’s likely to be some good players coming into the squad over the summer.

It will be a do or die summer of transfers for owner Mike Ashley and of course his biggest signing is that of a new head coach.

And we should learn if his ambition is any greater than it has been by which coach he appoints as the new Newcastle head coach.

There are a number of good ones out there and his first appointment is the most important one.

But first things first,  and we need at least one win in our final two games to be safe, and tomorrow’s our very best chance of doing that.

    what other clubs chuck players onto the pitch when they haven’t trained for 8 weeks
    wouldn’t be so bad but we have been doing it all season with players

    Shall we play two genuine strikers like Riverie and Armstrong or Riverie and Cisse, and Ayoze drops a bit deep and work as the additional striker? I think attack would be the best thing to break the morale of the already relegated QPR side.

    Ok,the barn sized tied down cows are now 50 ft away from Rivi and are standing on top of each other to form a massive bovine wall,Rivi starts his run up……and he misses the target by a mere 2000 sq yds taking out the local hospital,but wait,the refs ordered a retake,Rivi steps up….. and he’s kicked himself in the face,he got his technique all wrong.

    Graeme don’t you mean a 6-4-0, with one running around being a nuisance.

    There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call Newcastle United.

    can defiantly see a mackem and hull win today.. especially as spuds don’t want Europe.. huge pressure today.. as much as the qpr game 2 years ago, no distraction like the daughter being born this time :S also hope that carver doesn’t throw away a point if its 0-0 at 85 going all out for the win, a point could still be useful!
