If Newcastle Allow This To Happen We Deserve To Go Down


We don’t know how true this is – but there are reports that Papiss Cisse received multiple offers in the January transfer window with Crystal Palace (Alan Pardew), Swansea and Fenerbahce all interested in signing the 30 year-old Senegal International striker.

Newcastle want a £5M transfer fee for Cisse and there is a report in The Times today that multiple Chinese clubs in the Chinese Super League are interested in signing Papiss.

The Chinese Super League transfer window is open until February 26 – that’s a week tomorrow – and since Papiss Cisse is our most experienced Premier League striker and we are finding it difficult to score goals this season – surely there’s no way the club would let him move to China this month.

Papiss Cisse – Chinese clubs interested

It would be absolutely ridiculous if Newcastle allowed Papiss to move away from the club, with Newcastle’s place in the English Premier League now in real jeopardy.

But Newcastle have made some dumb moves like this in the past, but if they now allow either Cheick Tiote or Papiss Cisse to leave for China this month, it would be an absolute disgrace.

Newcastle should realize they have every legal right to keep players under contract with them at the club.

The needs of the business always surpass those of any individual – and what’s £5M in any case when we stand to lose £140M a year if we are relegated?

We don’t have much confidence at all in the Newcastle Board these days, but this would take the biscuit – and be close to dereliction of duty if they allow Papiss Cisse to leave the club this month.

And now we are starting to wonder why Papiss wasn’t taken to La Manga in Spain earlier this week.

    5mill means nothing to the club if they stay up so what’s the point just limits the options up front when we already have mostly poor ones

    As stated on last thread – he should be allowed to leave. It’s a good return and will mean that whoever we go out to sign in the summer at CF isn’t coming into a crowded position. It will also mean that SDJ gets more minutes and I think that will be beneficial. For me the question is should SDJ or Cisse play as they are the ones who are fighting for the same place in the squad and I really don’t see Cisse being the right move very often – he loses the ball and is perpetually offsides. His feet are where the ball goes to die. Pretty damning, but that’s how I feel about him.

    Feel free to disagree, but I don’t see him being useful, he doesn’t give the team anything apart from the very occasional worldy which can’t be how we plan to stay up.

    Papiss Demba Cissé (born 3 June 1985), also known as Papiss Cissé, is a Senegalese footballer who plays as a striker for Newcastle United and the Senegal national team.

    Formerly of SC Freiburg, he holds the record of most goals scored by an African player in a single Bundesliga campaign – 22 in the 2010–11 season. That same season, Cissé won an s4 award for being the most efficient striker in the league.

    A full international since 2009, Cissé has earned over 30 caps for Senegal and played for the country at the 2012 and 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.

    How is SDJ ever going to get more minutes when is a walking injury with minor bouts of fitness? I heard they are contemplating renaming Saylors wing at the general because of him

    Also he is often offside because our midfield is so slow at decision making

    If having Cisse here means the likes of Mitro, Perez, de Jong will get less game time then I am all for selling Cisse.

    The same goes for Tiote. It’s about building for the future and showing faith in those who will be here next season.

    For me neither of those two are a solution to our problem and they have been underperforming for a long time.

    He is offside because that’s where he sets up or he is too lazy to get back into position so he’s offsides during quick transitions. He isn’t offsides because the players around him are bad. He’s a professional footballer, he has to have figured out how to work with the team by now and not being able to stay onsides isn’t acceptable in the PL.

    He worked pretty well as an off the shoulder striker when Cabs was here. He’d make a run and the ball would already en route now he makes a run and a second later someone notices means he’s offside

    Not having that he is lazy like

    Far too early to bring armstrong back. Dont want to ruin his development for the potential he can score goals in the prem. Needs a spell in the championship next season to increase his experience. Look what happened when we tried him at the end of last season. Being top scorer in league 2 means nothing to premier league ability

    Look what has happened to aarons. Couple of good pre season showings against crap teams and everyone had him in their starting 11. Wasnt allowed to develop fully, and is now taking a hammering as a left back. Probably dont even need to mention Adam Campbell either.

    I think we have different views of his contribution. I see SDJ as providing more usefulness to the team than Cisse both on and off the field. On the field, I see Perez/Mitro as providing more use than either, but having a third player available is necessary. Off the field, SDJ should be more useful than Cisse as well – he has leadership qualities that few others in the squad have.

    The other thing is that even if Cisse was playing off the shoulder, is he fast enough now to do anything if he gets played in? Playing that game severely weakens the rest of the team as it means we are playing over the top balls hoping to retain possession instead of building from midfield. I just don’t see how his contribution to the squad is more useful than what we currently have. He will be on his way shortly (this summer if not earlier) so why not let him go now?

    Gotta run so not intentionally missing any follow-up if it comes. Fair play to you if you think differently on Cisse, I just have a low opinion of him.

    Cisse, played well when Marveaux was supplying him the balls through, Shelvey, if given time on the ball (ie if the players around him move into space to allow him more options) these are the balls through defences for quick cf to run onto , turning the defender is an art which Shelvey has excelled at.
    Doumbia , when fit is the same type of player but playing for a contract , unlike Cisse who seems like he can’t be bothered.
    It’s a difficult one though as I’ve seen what Cisse can do under any circumstances and has ,IMHO, wasted his last couple of seasons, mainly not his fault due to injury and being played when injured …..cheers Fraudew and Carvew…….to sell and risk the rest of the season with a questionable front line or keep him and risk him being a waste of a shirt…… I would say keep him…. With the right balls through he has proved he ca do it…. Doumbia is unproven ….at the very least he is an option from the bench vs poorer teams

    But it looks to me as if De Jong is pretty well done with the club Madison mate. His fitness has always been in question. Right now he has a Plantar’s Wart I believe. And chapped lips. Cisse can be useful but you never know which Cisse you’re going to get. The goal a game Cisse or the “what is this round object heading my way?” Cisse. We need to use DOOOOOMMMMBIA!

    Who knows where the next injuries will come from so selling an option up front when we are desperate for goals would appear crazy. I guess he’ll be gone then.

    A side note. Jeffrey is clearly trying to emulate the infamous Jeff from Benwell and in so doing implicate Jib as a multi account troll! How dare he.
    Jeffery, I would say, is more known for spamming the blog with song lyrics and tricking bloggers into thinking he’s someone he clearly isn’t.

    Mactoon,
    Have to disagree, with 5M in the bank gaining interest till May just think who we’ll be able to buy with that, and as we all know if you can score CL goals for Moscow you must be able score regularly in the PL, nothing but a mercenary he’s only our top scorer for the last three seasons because STaylor hasn’t been fit!

    Mactoon,
    On reflection you’re right, if the most illogical thing you could possibly do was letting your top score go when the team lacked goals, then our “board” will probably pat themselves on the back for thinking outside of the box by selling him.

    A pink wafer is a wafer-based confectionery originally made by Edinburgh’s Crawford’s Biscuits in the United Kingdom. It is now made by United Biscuits, the company that took over the firm in 1960, still using the Crawford’s name. The snack consists of crème sandwiched between wafers (dyed pink).
