Papiss Cisse will always be remembered on Tyneside for his blistering start to life in a black & white shirt.
Fourteen games 13 goals – a dream start for any striker.
The following seasons were not as productive for the Senegalese striker, but he still ended up with 44 goals in 131 appearances, and Cisse can look back at his time with Newcastle proud of what he achieved.
However, it is not just Tyneside where he will be remembered – Cisse will never be forgotten in the Premier League after he scored one of the most extraordinary goals ever against Chelsea in 2012.
Cisse says that he loves that goal, but no one ever talks about it.
Well, Cisse, I do.
It was the first half of one of the best Premier League braces ever and should never be forgotten as it summed up everything good about Newcastle that season.
Both goals were audacious and outrageous, and they were evidence of what a striker like Cisse could do when he was on top of his game.
