Papiss Cisse Falls Out Of Love
I think this is a sentiment a lot of us are experiencing in some way in relation to Newcastle United at the minute.
However, in Papiss Cisse’s case it is reported that he has split up with his Geordie girlfriend, ex-Miss Newcastle Rachelle Graham, in order to ‘concentrate on his football’.
Not wanting to make light of players’ private lives but let’s hope from a purely Newcastle United perspective that the split helps him get back to scoring goals…though it would help if the rest of the team managed to create the odd chance for him.
When asked about the period when he missed pre-season matches due to the row over the shirt sponsor, Cisse said, “I don’t feel like I really missed out, I needed the rest because while others were on holiday, I still had three weeks of international duty.”
The fact remains though that in total the two strikers we are currently relying on to save/make our season, Remy and Cisse, played a combined total of three and a half hours football in pre-season with their teammates.
Just as well I don’t believe in that old saying of ‘Fail To Prepare, Prepare To Fail’…
