Cisse Is The Class That Can Fill The No 9 Shirt!

Alan Pardew says Papiss Demba Cisse can bring much more than just goals to Newcastle - despite the pressure of goalscoring that comes with the famous No 9 Toon shirt.

We are constantly being reminded of the "legends" who have made the shirt what it is . but let's take a bit of pressure off Cisse . some "knackers" have worn it too.

Wayne Fereday (only once - thank God); Tony Cunningham (pictured right); Billy Whitehurst; 'Mavis' Reilly; and Ian Baird.

Alan Pardew: “His work-rate and commitment – trying to get in behind the Southampton defence and stretch them – was first class.

“He gets all types of goals – a bit like the legend that hangs over this place, Alan Shearer,

“That was a Shearer moment. It almost reminded me of that goal of the season he got here. What a great hit – it was brilliant for Cisse.

“Everybody’s on a real high – that was as good a performance as we’ve had all year."
