Cisse To Still Finish Newcastle’s Top Scorer

10 years ago

I know we live in an age when many people have a 2 second attention span but the over-reaction to Papiss Cisse going a few matches without scoring, is an embarrassment.

I even remember Alan Shearer once or twice going five minutes without scoring but you knew the goals would eventually come.

It is the same with Papiss Cisse, once he scores then I have little doubt he’ll go on a run. As Alan Pardew has pointed out, he’d be worried if Cisse wasn’t getting into scoring positions but he is doing, he’s just not scoring them!

I’m so convinced I wanted to put my money where my mouth is and at BetVictor they’ve got odds on who will finish as Newcastle’s top scorer in the Premier League and it makes interesting, and in some case amusing, reading.

The odds on NUFC’s top Premier League scorer with BetVictor are;

Ba               11/10   
Cisse           13/8
Ben Arfa       6/1
Shola           14/1
Cabaye         20/1
Ranger         25/1
Amalfitano   40/1   
Bigirimana   66/1
Jonas           66/1
Gosling       100/1
Obertan       100/1
Sammy        100/1

I know Ba has started well with 4 goals already but I fancy once Cisse gets into his stride there will be no stopping him so on that basis I’m going to snap up the 13/8 on Cisse.

I suppose I wouldn’t put anybody off Demba Ba at 11/10 as if you ignore the off-field spat he’s scored some great goals already.

An interesting one is Hatem Ben Arfa on 6/1, if he ‘d kept hold of the ball on Sunday I’ve no doubt he’d now be on 3 goals and the look of plenty more where they came from.

After that you are getting into strange territory, maybe the mackem slayer at 14/1 would be worth a punt if he could play his favourite team every week.

Cabaye at 20/1 will no doubt come up with a few from midfield but surely not enough to be a serious threat, while if you take Nile Ranger at 25/1 you deserve….locking up!

After that you are into Jonas and Obertan country, I was expecting to see Krul and Harper listed when I saw them!

In Papiss Cisse we trust, believe!

If you sign up to BetVictor then you will get up to a £25 free matched bet but even if you only like an occasional flutter on the football the big attraction with BetVictor is that if you win, then on most occasions you’ll get paid more than other bookies.

Having a bet on Newcastle is a bit of fun but it will be a lot more fun if you bet and win with BetVictor!
