This Is How Joe Kinnear Can Be Successful At Newcastle

Saturday, July 27th, 2013 · 226 Comments

There was some good news last Thursday about Papiss Cisse staying at Newcastle, and finally agreeing to wear the Wonga insignia, and we were very pleased with that – because Papiss is a great natural striker and in his one and a half seasons on Tyneside, he’s scored 26 goals in 61 appearances, and some of those goals have been just unbelievable.
