The Fight Is On For Papiss Cisse and Loic Remy

8 years ago

You might have heard that there was a bit of chaos and conflict over the summer, with not one permanent signing brought in, only Loic Remy arriving on loan.

With no other striker brought in, it then looks to have created a bit of a straight shoot-out Remy v Cisse to be Newcastle United top dog.

Maybe if Remy had been a permanent signing then fans would have been a bit more uplifted, however what it has given us is two strikers with great goalscoring pedigrees.

The question is though, who do you fancy to outscore the other?

Cisse spoilt us all when he arrived, averaged a goal a game and all but one or two were goal of the season contenders. Last season he suffered more than most from the lack of creativity in the team and that has continued into the early games of this one.

On the other hand, after knocking NUFC back, Remy scored a decent number of goals for QPR but they were never going to survive.

So who would you money be on to be Newcastle United’s top Premier League scorer?

The current odds are;

5/4 Cisse
3/1 Remy
6/1 Ben Arfa
8/1 Gouffran
16/1 Shola

Passing swiftly over Shola, Pardew doesn’t seem to fancy Gouffran up top and so I can’t see him scoring more than half a dozen or so form deep/out wide.

Ben Arfa currently leads the goal race with one! However, in reality he will be looked at to be a big provider of bullets for Remy and Cisse, as well as weighing in with a few worldies of his own.

At the odds though, Remy (if off the pitch problems are sorted)must be a cracking bet to win his duel with Cisse and 3/1 Remy must be the bet.
