The Two Players Alan Pardew Was Desperate To Sign

8 years ago

Alan Pardew was glowing after the magnificent performance against Chelsea and deserved three points.

He also went on to wax lyrical about the two players he was most desperate to sign in his time at Newcastle;

“The whole team was magnificent but Sissoko…it would be silly to ignore the fact of how he announced his presence in the game, not only with his technical ability but also his power.

It is something that has been missing from the team and I don’t really need to say too much on this as his performance spoke for itself.

I remember seeing Sissoko at Toulouse around fourteen to sixteen months ago. There are only two players that I have seen that I was desperate to get here; one was Yohan Cabaye and the other was Moussa Sissoko”.

I know Moussa Sissoko is going to get all the headlines with his match winning goals and leaving Ashley Cole eating dust but both yesterday and at Villa Park, it is Yohan Cabaye who has really made Newcastle tick again.

It really does your head in (in a nice way!) to think how little Newcastle have paid for two such brilliant players, lightning maybe does strike twice in the same place but slightly optimistic expecting nine similar outrageous steals.
