Image for Flashback: Some Newcastle fans reminisce over Cisse strike

Many Newcastle fans are reminscing over how great a player Papiss Cisse was during his time in the North after a post showing his highlights when he scored both goals in a 2-0 victory against Swansea on the 6th April in 2012.

The second goal in this game highlighted the sheer quality the striker had whilst playing at the club as he delicately curled the ball into the top right corner when it looked like the opportunity had gone.

He made 131 appearances for the Magpies across five seasons, with his best tally in a season being eleven goals in twenty two appearances in 2014/15, via Transfermarkt.

Fans would wish for an attacker with his quality currently as strikers Dwight Gayle, Andy Carroll and Joelinton have only managed one goal between them in the Premier League this season, via WhoScored. They will be hopeful that their form can improve when football resumes.

Cisse’s goals for the club were clearly appreciated by fans, with one tweeting that during his early career at Newcastle, he ‘was THE best finisher in the league.’

Here is what fans have said following the post:
