The Cisse shirt sponsor saga has summed up Newcastle United’s summer so far.

No doubt there will be nobody more relieved than Alan Pardew when he heard the news.

PC0008_Papiss_Cisse_Newcastle_United_NUFCWith no signings looking imminent, if Cisse had been ‘Wongad’ out then where exactly we’d be looking for goals would be anybody’s guess.

This is what the manager had to say to the Shields Gazette about the resolution of the problem and where Cisse is at fitness wise;

“It has been resolved and I’m very, very pleased.

Papiss is in good condition, it (missing Portugal trip) isn’t going to affect him.”

Alan Pardew hasn’t confirmed whether Papiss Cisse will play a part at Blackpool on Saturday but with only three weeks until the Premier League kicks off it would make sense to get him on the pitch as soon as it is sensible and at last have a focus for United’s attacking play as they prepare for the coming campaign.

Think it's wrong to be critical of the supporters who go to the fans forum. I'm sure they ask relevant questions but it's difficult to get blood from a stone. Minutes of meetings are a summary of what was said, not a detailed record.

My only disagreement with what has been tabled is the wording of C) which asks for a committment that Carver will not be head coach next year. Very few would want Carver as head coach but the question is unanswerable at this time, they won't commit to yes or no, they will say what all organisations say in these circumstances, nothing has been decided yet. My belief is if 'Geordie' John's cunning plan works and we get relegated he will get the job, stay up he won't.

can the Fans Forum point out that Hughton was removed because he did not have enough experience. 


Surely any appointment of Carver would be contrary to that stance, i.e. he hasn't got a clue!!  We need reassurance that we have someone already  lined up to start the transition from the end of the season as an absolute minimum.


I would want reassurance that we aren't going to waste millions on average players when we panic in August and will instead do our business early to get the team up and running before we even play our first friendly matches!!

Thanks for the support Jackie, just a small correction, we have never allowed ourselves to be used as 'propganda' by the club, we have fought our corner at every meeting on behalf of the fans who are the best and deserve the best.
