The name of Papiss Cisse featured fairly heavily on this, and many other Spurs sites prior to last January’s transfer window. At the time, Cisse was at Freiburg where his performances were putting a number of European clubs on alert.

His goal scoring ratio had gone beyond a goal every other game and transfer fees in the region of £5m were being quoted. Eventually, Newcastle United were the ones to take a chance, although the final transfer figure was believed to be £8m.

Whatever the sum was, Cisse began to repay it immediately and as of now, the Senegalese has fifteen goals in 26 games for the Magpies.

The only issue seems to be a feeling that Cisse and Demba Ba can’t gel up front and with a rotation in the side and on the bench, that could lead to one of them leaving in January. It’s probably paper talk and maybe Ba would be the more likely to leave in this scenario.

The only thing that does seem certain is that the fee would be consider higher than the £8m that Newcastle paid for Papiss Cisse earlier this year.



  1. Spurs would need to dig deep to get either of these strikers away from Newcastle, ans will have competition as the Scousers have been saving up their dole money again and are also looking to the north east for an answer to their striking problems.

    • Talksport asked what special “superpowers” the new Geordie hero Why Aye Man should have. The winning entry- his superpower should be the capacity to convince others that Newcastle are a big club, despite not winning a trophy in living memory

  2. “utd111’a dad” – I don’t blame you…you’re clearly a deranged imbecile who had an unhappy childhood. (sorry about the big words sonny – look them up.)
    But to whoever runs this grotty little excuse for a blog – are you really so desperate for comments that you allow comments from idiots like him/her to stand?

    Tony – talk to us about being a “big club” when you ever get “big crowds” – or even 40,000 LOL!
