Cisse v Crouch? – You Be The Judge

10 years ago

As soon as the match finished last night bookies raced to make Papiss Cisse’s tap-in their odds on favourite for goal of the season.

The only apparent competition according to the likes of Ladbrokes and others is Peter Crouch’s half decent….volley against Manchester City earlier this season.

Fair play to the lanky freak but having watched the genius that is Papiss Cisse over and over again hitting that second one last night, can there be any other winner?

Old timers would no doubt claim Jackie Milburn hit those every week and then then the Supermac generation would surely do the same.

The truth is though that with the type of football used in the modern game it does lend itself to hitting the ball from outrageous distances but that is all well and good as  getting it on target and beating the keeper is another matter.

Goal of the season this year for Papiss Cisse but what will Newcastle United be capable of winning next season if they can keep such talented players and add to them?
