youtube159 (2)Saturday was a great day for everybody connected with Newcastle United.

A great ninety minutes and a last gasp victory for the right team.

That ninety minutes was also the home debut for a player who could become something really special at St.James’ Park.

Moussa Sissoko started well at Villa but it was against Chelsea that we saw the full picture, a player with pace & power who added goals on top.

Relive again his vital equaliser, Gouffran’s lung bursting run from halfway and Sissoko’s determination to get the rebound from Cech’s save.

Enjoy that goal but from a very different angle, with footage shot ‘from the terraces’.

As this is an ongoing case is it legal to discuss it on a fans' forum?

It is an ongoing case. A jury will decide whether he is guilty on some of the charges, with the evidence starting on Friday. The trial is in another part of the country and I guess they have been careful to ensure there are no Newcastle fans on the jury. He could hardly get a fair trial on the Quayside;) But the judge revealed today that Johnson has already pleaded guilty to some of the lesser charges. He presumably will be sentenced on them only after the jury have made a decision. That could take weeks. The Mag and other blogs have to be careful to report the case in accordance with the law and the judge's directions to the media. The judge has presumably agreed for the guilty admissions to be made public, and he has informed the jury about them.

Can't see the justification of his club standing by him now , he should be sacked at the very least .

Its about time we returned to the cap on players wages. Obscene amount of money going to average players when the majority of supporters get at best the living wage. Maybe every club should have a committee to rate players on their performance and pay them accordingly. Some of our lot over the last couple of years would starve to death.

Not about to say anything about the player as he's beneath contempt. However I do recall a lot of makems telling us that everyone is innocent until proven guilty so we shouldnt say nasty things about him ?

This goes to show that some are more "innocent" than others

Very nasty and too serious an issue / situation to be putting on a fans website just to (presumably) encourage abusive reactions.

Not a football story and for me (though sadly there seem to be many players who think they can do what they like these days)  and it almost demeans his victims by trivialising what happened to this level.

The horrible prick shouldn't play another days football in his life. I actually remember a mackem defending this nonce on a YouTube video by TheTrueGeordie and tried to claim its ok because we had loic... yet loic was accused and never charged and certainly never admitted it. Johnson the nonce should be hung by his balls and stoned by 1000 rape victims.

@andkdk11 At the time Johnson claimed he was innocent; check all the Sunderland fan forums, all their fans want to see him sacked and are very angry that the club, who most likely knew of his plea, kept playing him.

The evil little man should have is penis surgically removed for a punishment, these kind of people should be relieved of their sex organs to stop future risk to other children. it just goes to show how strange these mackems really are, I wouldn't trust any mackem around my children.

Dirty paedo and the whole of the North East knew it all along,  INCLUDING Sunderland FC who steadfasatly played him and gave him the benefit of any doubt.

How any Mackem will be able to hold their heads up anywhere ever again is debateable.

By allowing him to play on, the club have soured the good name of their fans. Love them or loathe them, they do not deserve a Chairman and directors with such Morals.

Surely, he wouldn't have the brass neck to want to keep playing when the world now knows of his Paedophilia. Put him in the stocks in the middle of Sunderland and let the public sort him.

@Porciestreet I hope Johnson gets the punishment he deserves but before you condemn Sunderland AFC and their fans just remember that we had Loic Remy playing for us while he had a rape charge hanging over his head.

potski

No we didn't. There was an allegation, but he was not charged with any offence.

@potski Maybe I'm wrong but at the time I was under the impression Remy had been charged and had a court date scheduled for the November after we signed him. I thought that was the reason no other club came in and bought him after QPR were relegated that year.

I don't think you do him justice as a "sunderland player" he is probably more of a head player team leader....scum.
