Cisse Says Fan Protests Don’t Make It Easy For Players

7 years ago

Papiss Cisse has said that while the current protests are aimed at the manager, Newcastle fans are also hurting the team by showing their dissatisfaction with the manager.

While Cisse is currently in the fortunate position of having scored four goals and saved two of the last three Premier League matches in terms of two draws.

The striker is still on dodgy ground when saying the following;

“It’s (the protests) for the gaffer but it is not good for the team.

“It is not easy for the players because it is the players playing the game.”

Surely it is a case of what came first?

Supporters haven’t set out to give the manager stick for no reason, both Pardew and his players have played miserably for the last nine months and in my opinion, the players are very very lucky that they are escaping the vast majority of the stick.

While Alan Pardew’s limitations are clear, it is still a shameful record for this group of players throughout 2014 and no matter what the manager has or hasn’t done, if they’d had even a decent record of winning football matches which they are paid a fortune to do.

Then it would be a case of…winning football matches = no protests against manager = easier for the players.

Many supporters would say that they have made it far too easy for players and if like other clubs the fans had turned on the players then it could surely have brought out no worse reaction than what we have seen over the previous nine months.

If you are a season ticket holder who uses public transport for home matches then it is a no-brainer to get a Magpie Mover.

If you don’t use public transport for home matches then why not consider making the change? Cut pollution, traffic congestion and stress, whilst at the same time saving money!

Even season ticket holders who live outside the area and drive to home matches, would save a fortune on parking and stress by parking outside the city centre and using the metro or bus via a Magpie Mover ticket.
