Who will score Newcastle’s 1000th Premier League Goal?

Could Cisse make his mark? Forever?
Newcastle United could achieve the milestone of scoring their 1,000th Premier League goal in the fixture against Everton at Goodison Park this evening.

Of course that is assuming we can actually score a goal this evening!

Now there are several candidates as to who could gain the honour of scoring the club’s 1000th goal in the Premier League, and much like our first ever Premier League goal, the player in question doesn’t even have to be from our own side! However there are a few likely lads in our ranks who will be trying to find the back of the net for us tonight.

Hatem Ben Arfa is certainly a player who change the tide of the game in a few moves. This was seen in our previous fixture against Aston Villa when he scored that magnificent goal with his weaker right foot. He certainly looks in form and the Frenchman could again show us that bit of magic that makes us all love him.

Demba Ba scored Newcastle’s first goal of the season with a wonderful curled shot against Brad Freidel when the Magpies faced Tottenham Hotspur at St James’ Park. He has looked sharp already this season and with Rammadan over, it is expected that he will become much stronger.



Papiss Cisse has been relatively quiet this season. There has no been demonstration of the form that he was in which ran from when he arrived in January to the end of last season. However the Senegalese international was on target during their game against the Ivory Coast which they lost 4-2. Perhaps the international activity he has been involved in will allow him to kick start his goal tally for this season and score Newcastle’s 1,000th Premier League goal?

Steven Taylor, although a defender, has often chipped in with plenty of goals in the opposition penalty box. Known for wearing his heart on his sleeve for the club, it would be quite fitting if he did indeed manage to score the 1000th Premier League goal for Newcastle United.

Realistically there are plenty of others who stand a chance of scoring the 1000th goal but I’ve just picked out those who seem to score the majority of our goals pretty much. Of course this all depends on the team actually converting their chances on Monday night anyway…

What do you think? Who will score our 1000th Premier League goal?

  1. Nice article Zoe. After reading the interview with Dreamboat in The Journal I reckon he’ll be the one to bag the 1000th goal. :mrgreen:

    I know it’s not original, but I think Cisse. He’s just due, and that utterly ridiculous header against Ivory Coast (30 yards, was it?) shows he’s up for a crack at anything.

    Otherwise, I think Saylor from a set piece is always a good bet.

    Lots of goals tonight, but sadly not all ours. I think we’ll get done 3-2 or 3-1. Hope I’m wrong…

  3. [email protected] dont know about that mate but rags reporting that barca want to sign him 🙁

  4. His name is Jonas….he’s carrying the team!

    Even though its time he was moved/out from the first 11 I think he’ll get one of his screamers 😎

  5. Cisse with a screamer would be nice Zoe but think the most likely candidate is Benny .Having said that if it gives us a win a goal going in off anyones arse would do fine 😉 :mrgreen:

  6. Kim-Aye, at least when he scores they are proper goals. Not like Milner who only scored when he attempted to cross 😆

  7. Ice,

    There is no way that Barce are after Tim Krul unless he would be their second choice to Valdes. So I’m 99% sure its rubbish. Don’t see him going as second choice when he gets game time here.

    As for the 1000th goal. My guess is Cisse, but its just as likely we will have to wait until the weekend. Everton have kept seven clean sheets in their last nine games.

  8. i will go for taylor to score from a corner,but dont forcast results they have a habit of coming back and biting your ass 😀

  9. Luckily Tim Krul’s shocking distribution should put Barca off him completely anyway 😉

    Other than that, he’s probably a better keeper than Valdes… 😎

  10. Ice,

    Not in keeper terms. He is only 30. The scary thing is the only Barca first team player getting on age wise is Puyol. Even Xavi who is 32 has a good two years left in him.

    The rest are mostly in their 20s.

  11. AMF you dont see much of dave on monday mornings,it takes him most of the day to hobble down to post office to get his benifits 😀 the oap one 😆 😆

  12. Ice,
    I thought the reason we don’t see much of Dave lately is because he finds it hard to type when his head is jammed so far up Troy Stavers bum hole. 😆 😉

  13. Does anybody think we could be playing a few mind games with Everton with regard to how bad the injury situation is and that Colo might end up playing tonight.

      (Quote)

  14. JJ I think Perchinho is a more than able deputy and is a bit quicker than Collo as a bonus. His passing and general play is slightly better than the average CB as well, as long as he has a physical CB beside him I think he looks good there.

  15. [email protected] you could have point mate but dont forget i heard dave can see from both ends 😀 😀

  16. also think pardew could be playing mind games,tiote must be close to coming back,need him in the middle 2nt. would like to have a natural winger on to give some supply to our strikers and to stop their fullbacks pushing up.

    @JJ

    Just because BD puts you in your place does not mean you have to ridicule him behind his back. 😉

    I agree about Perch. If a big name had been putting in the same performances he has lately they would be getting all sorts of praise lavished apon them.

    Perch may be getting some praise, but it will only take one moment for him to be tagged useless again. Whereas if Colo did it, it would be. “He’s only human”.

    My worry is how well our right side will cope against Pienaar and Baines.

    This is a crucial match tonight. Defeat could really shatter our confidence but a win would have it flooding back.

    I go for a draw! 😯

  20. JJ-I wouldn’t rule anything out considering half our team was supposed to be out against Spurs at the start of the season. Not sure it’d make much difference though, I doubt it would change much in how everton would set up, their team generally picks itself and Moyes will be wise to a possibility of Pards’ tricks.

    I do think he is actually injured though 😕

  21. Welcome Troy,
    Just thought I’d through a popper on the water and look who raised his head above the water. 😉

    What’s your score prediction for tonight?

  22. Heitenga, Distin and Jagielka are all good solid defenders. Baines will be a threat down the left, but he won’t be able to venture forward too much with Benny there.

    In fact, I’d play five in midfield and get Obertan on the right to counter attack and help out defensively. Dropping one of Cisse or Ba. It’ll be interesting to see what Pardew does.

    Nikica Jelavic doesn’t have lightning pace or strength, he is just a good finisher and has good movement so I would expect our defenders to cope there.

    I am a bit worried about the physical strength of Fellaini in their midfield. I wouldn’t be if we had Cheik there but I don’t see Cabaye or Bigi or Anita handling him well. So that for me is their biggest strength.

  23. JJ
    I think Anita is no mug at RB. As Benny drifts inside so much I think this could be a game to play Obertoon, even though some blogs said we should sell him in the summer, where were those people after the Atrimitos game? 😉 I think if we stuck Obertan on Baines it would help keep him pinned back and then play Benny just behind the CF where he is more effective. It won’t happen though.

    ‘I am a bit worried about the physical strength of Fellaini in their midfield.’

    For that reason I don’t think we will see Anita there, for the sheer height difference between Fellani and Anita if nothing else. I think Anita looked better at RB tbh. In midfield he just seemed to run round in circles rather than close the space effectively like Tiote.

  25. Someone earlier mentioned Tim’s poor distribution. I was talking to someone who is not a football fan but watches the odd game on T.V. He watched the game against Villa. He asked me why Krul punts the ball up field when most of the time the opposition win the ball putting Newcastle under pressure. I can only assume he is working to instructions and if he isn’t why hasn’t Pards told him to stop it?

      (Quote)

  26. Groucho-To be fair, not all the punts are Kruls’ fault. The fact we have a number of tallish but not very aerially competetive players throughout the midfield and up front means we tend to lose most of them anyway and I don’t really blame krul for it. He’s improving, but sometimes still seems to kick them out for a throw in near the halfway line, that kind of kick, unless under severe pressure is pretty inexcusable.

    I do think we need to start playing out the back a bit more, particularly with goal kicks if we’re not playing Shola up front. Problem is only Santon/Colo are real outlets but sometimes Santon can take risks, and in our rigid 4-4-2 there’s rarely an unmarked man in the midfield to pass to anyway.

  27. I also don’t like to see the ball kicked up field ,we nearly always lose possession and would much prefer we played it out .If we have a MF of

    Anita
    Cabs Benny Marv

    All these players on good on the ball technically and should be more than capable of a good pass and move game without resorting to hoofing it in panic.

  28. After getting destroyed in the same fixture last game of the season I’m a bit apprehensive, bit still excited all the same. Hopefully Carver knows what to do and Pards has given him good ideas.

  29. We are on 999 according to several different sites. Goal difference of +110. 612 of our goals have come at home. We have conceded 529 away though.

    We have played 18 times at Everton in the PL, winning 5 and drawing 4. Goal difference 26-19.

    We have taken 8 points out of the last possible 30 at Goodison Park.

      (Quote)

  30. Guardian also says 999.

    It also says Papiss Cissé has not scored in his past five games but still has the best minutes to goal ratio (107) of any player to have scored 10 or more goals in the Premier League

    Classic 😀

  31. DAVE dont worry mate ime watching your back 😀 dont forget its richie day off they have to pick on someone and you have a broad back 😆 😆

  32. Ice I knew I could count on you to watch my back it’s them aussies and the safa’s you have to watch they’re fond of stabbing people in the back 😉 .

    I would like to see the captain in waiting, Geordie boy Saylor score the 1000th 😀

      (Quote)

  33. Speaking of corners, I’d actually like to see Jonas and Anita start taking them corresponding to their stronger feet. Had enough of Cabaye and Benny now 😕

      (Quote)

  34. Surely someone other than Raylor can produce a decent corner? Who shows well in practice sessions? I don’t think it will be Jonas as he only produces 1 or 2 decent crosses a game. Give Benny a chance to settle into it. Looking forward to the match. Hoping for a draw at least. 😀

      (Quote)

  35. Dave it’s crazy. They get paid thousands to kick a football, yet I don’t honestly believe we have even 1 player in our starting line up capable of crossing consistently well?! 😕 😯
