Some good news today that Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse has declared himself fit after being out on the sidelines after he injured his groin in the first half of the 1-1 draw at home to Aston Villa on December 19th.
So that’s almost two months the Senegal striker has been out on the sidelines and it’s good to see him back, because maybe it’s Papiss Cisse who can get the goals for us and keep us in the Premier League.
Papiss Cisse – fit again after two months out
Papiss has scored two goals for us in 10 appearances this term, but last season he scored 11 goals in 22 appearances and Papiss is a natural goalscorer who is available to Newcastle again.
This is what he has said in the Mirror:
“The past two months have been frustrating. Now I’m back to Newcastle to resume training. I’m looking forward to the rest of the season,”
“I feel fit, sharp and very focused. I can’t wait to get back playing again as quickly as possible. I’m in good shape.”
Papiss will travel with the Newcastle squad to La Manga in southern Spain for a week of warm weather training and will prepare for two important upcoming games at Stoke on March 2nd and at home to Bournemouth three days later.
We will need at least 4 points from this games and those results will likely determine whether Steve McClaren keeps his job at Newcastle.
If we lose at Stoke then it’s likely that Steve will be fired after leading Newcastle to their worst season ever in the Premier League.
Here’s are current record this season and we are back in 3rd bottom place.
