Approach Made For Top Newcastle Player


The Mirror are reporting that Turkish club Besiktas are now supposed to be favorites to sign the Newcastle striker, and they are reporting an approach has been made for the Senegal International.

But the Tyneside club would be taking a chance if they let Papiss go before bringing in at least one suitable replacement.

Cisse is supposed to be the replacement for Demba Ba at Besiktas – who it seems will not be joining West Brom as there is news he will join Super League club Shanghai Shenhua in China – according to their web-site.

Papiss Cisse – 11 goals in 22 appearances last season

Papiss Cisse cost us around £9M when he signed in January of 2012 from Bundesliga club SC Freiburg,  and in the 109 games he’s played at Newcastle since then he’s scored 41 goals,  including 11 Premier League goals last season in only 22 appearances.

Only a day or so ago Newcastle said they had received no offers for the 30 year-old, and Newcastle want £10M for him.

That’s a decent price to ask, so clubs will think twice about coming in and bidding that kind of money for a player, who can still do a job for us at Newcastle.

We hope Papiss stays at the club – at least for next season – since he’s one of the proven Premier League goalscorers we have and he has two years left on his contract.

Papiss has also made it very clear that he wants to stay on Tyneside and play for new head coach Steve McClaren.

Newcastle would be foolish to let him go before we have a suitable replacement brought in – but the club have made that mistake before.

What do you think?

    I agree about Riv, he has the attributes to be a cracking player, all he lacks is composure.

    Maybe SM could change this for him

    Don’t worry mate Newcastle were never in for him, all these players that are linked to other clubs and players who actually went to other clubs Newcastle seem to be in the mind of all journos

    There is nothing wrong with getting £10m for Cisse, but only if he is replaced by someone better and that someone will cost more than £10m. However, far better get rid of Rivere as well/instead. With two more strikers and Cisse with new winger and midfield providers, we would have a pretty awesome strike force. Now that’s what I’m talkin about !

    Mr Ashley has assured me we will have the funds to sign 4 top quality players and a couple of upcomings. We should have a couple in by Wednesday to meet the rest of the squad.

    Cisse is crap, he’s slow, his distribution is awful, he’s weak, he can’t beat anyone, not a player that can lead the line himself. He is always in the right place, that in my opinion is his only useful contribution

    Riv will be getting a second chance ( let’s face it we had Pardew and Carver training him and setting him up )

    Plus if we did sell Cisse I don’t think we will bring in an replacement since we have Riv, Perez and Gouffran as strikers and SM has been known to use 1 striker

    Actually think McLaren will help Riviere a lot.
    It’s the likes of marveuax, vuckic and bigi I’m interested to see what some decent coaches,tactics can bring from them.

    Yes ,sell Cisse ,and the fat cnut can sit in his office ,covered in £10 notes ,screaming my precious,with Penfold the fcuking pukkawalla fanning him!!

    james -I think that sums up Cisse exactly. He really offers nothing to the team if you have regard to his overall play.
    Get him sold.

    For the summer transfer window,I’d only offload fergs, obertan and Williamson.

    We need a bigger squad,so add quality to that and in the short term the likes of gouffran are worth keeping.

    Yes, Charnley’s dabs are all over this supposed move for Cisse.

    He’s seemingly so scared of spending before he sells it’s beginning to expose the commitment to a nett spend this window. Cisse’ll be sold for £Xm and his replacement bought for £X + £1.

    Alan Oliver says…..

    The key could be Newcastle goalkeeping coach Andy Woodman, who has turned Krul into one of the most admired stoppers in Europe.

    its shocking ashley didnt cash in on krul after the world cup heroics, now hes pissed and wont settle for less even though Krul is above average at best. His distribution has to be one of he worst in the league. how many times have we seen the team play it back to the keeper only to have him turn it over? might as well take your chances going forward.
