Alan Shearer is certainly not pulling his punches since Newcastle lost at West Ham last Monday night and then at home to Watford on Saturday – two defeats and two poor performances from the team.
After the 2-0 defeat at West Ham Alan said Newcastle would have been better off not having the Newcastle number 9 on the pitch.
Alan Shearer – another blast at Cisse
And today in his Sun column he has blasted the striker once again.
Thai is what Alan has written:
“Papiss Cisse had one great chance and scuffed it wide,” “Other than that, he didn’t really have a lot to do.”
“He clearly doesn’t want to be at the club. You wonder what effect that is having on the dressing room.”
Cisse missed a great chance for Newcastle on Saturday after 14 minutes, just four minutes after Watford had gone ahead.
Cisse was through in the inside left position, but he shot wide of the post – a poor effort – and he should have at least forced a save from the goalkeeper.
A goal at that stage would have had Newcastle right back in it and goals change games.
As it was, it was a surprise Cisse even started the game after he didn´t play well at all at West Ham and he was withdrawn at the half on Saturday and on came Siem de Jong.
If Cisse doesn´t want to be at Newcastle that would be a negative for the team but it´s pure speculation from the 45 year-old Newcastle legend.
The last thing we want to see this season is more dressing room unrest.
What do you think?
