Newcastle beat Champions League clubs in pursuit of Cisse

Papiss Demba Cisse
Newcastle saw off competition from a host of top clubs in the race to capture Papiss Demba Cisse last night, according to his agent Andy Evans.

The new number nine seems to be going down a treat already with fans who are looking forward to seeing a striker with an impressive goal return in action at St James’ Park.

However his impressive goal return alerted a whole host of top clubs, some of whom ply their trade in the Champions League, who were looking into the possibility of signing the 26-year-old only to be beaten to chase by plucky Newcastle United.

“There was a lot of interest and a host of top clubs were interested in Papiss, that’s why it was important to get a deal done tonight, huge teams were circling. I’m talking Champions League,” Evans told NUFC fans.

He continued: “Newcastle did an excellent job of completing this deal. They were interested in the summer and made numerous bids for the player, but Freiberg were holding out for their valuation of €15m.”

“The fee was agreed 9pm last night (Monday), Papiss had to come out of training camp and board a private jet set up by Newcastle at 7.10am local time this morning. He arrived here at midday and went through the formalities.”

Not bad going is it? Perhaps NUFC are becoming a dab hand at this transfer malarkey? I mean they’ve managed to bring in an awful lot of quality for reasonable prices and all of them fit into the much talked about transfer policy we have in place. Granted Cisse is at the older end of the spectrum, but at 26 years old he is still in it.

The question is how we’ve managed to beat off competition from Champions League clubs? I mean we don’t pay exorbitant wages and can’t offer European football at this present moment, so what have we pulled out of the bag to secure this deal?

Credit to everyone involved!

  1. Indeed Richie, who gives a flying fark where the cash came from, I just hope there’s more of it! 😆

    …and yes, you don’t need to spend big to get good players in, but it certainly helps.

    CC makes a good point at 46. Some absolutely cracking deals have gone through in our favour over the last year or two.

    If only I could borrow Gannie Vanga’s crystal ball off Troy to see where we finish this season, and with what squad. 😎


  2. Think Fulham away this Saturday is going to be tough. Would happily take a draw now since some of our top players are away at the moment.

    1 plus point is Arsenal have Man Utd, which I can see Man Utd winning. If we take maximum points we will over take them into 5th.

    1 negative is Liverpool have Bolton away, can’t see anything but a win for the bindippers with Boltons poor form. That keeps them on our toes or over take us if we lose or draw…

    To be fair i dod nick it off some ****ter page but its still a nice stat like, I cannot believe i was moaning about the club not trying to sign andy johnson a week back… 😯


  4. 😆 😆

    (I was actually agreeing with CC it could be a good cheap move, I think we both need a slap!) 😆


  5. I know some lads are wondering about , was it Ashley’s money out of his own pocket that bought Cisse or the sponsors money.

    Well think of it this way.

    The club is now run IN HOUSE, which means that all monies paid out (including transfer fees) come from the revenue the club makes and not from Ashleys trouser pocket, personally.

    This club is Ashley’s company, so ultimately anything sanctioned has to have his approval for release from the clubs coffers.

    There should not be any issue whatsoever about where/how/what/who the money is from as long as it’s not borrowed from a bank with silly interest rates, which we know it’s not, so on that note, we should all be glad that our transfers are paid for……….

    1….Cash in hand.
    2….Within budget.

    That’s all we really need to know because that’s why we are running like a Swiss watch, because of clever, shrewd, astute buying and being beholding to no one. 😀
