Cisse admits to feeling flat

Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse admits his struggles in front of goal this season have left him feeling 'a little bit down'.

Papiss Cisse: Has netted only three goals so far this season

Papiss Cisse: Has netted only three goals so far this season

The Senegal international was a revelation on Tyneside last term, with a flurry of goals over the second half of the campaign announcing his arrival in style.

He settled immediately following a January switch from Freiburg, finding the target 13 times in 14 appearances.

Cisse has found the going a little tougher this season, with a three-goal return spread across the Premier League, Capital One Cup and Europa League.

The 27-year-old is disappointed not to have built on his success from 2011/12, but remains confident that the goals will come once the floodgates open.

He said: "I know I was scoring in every match last season, so when I have not been scoring I have felt a little bit down.

"But I have got three goals now, one in each competition, and that makes me certain that I will soon be back to what I was last season."

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
