Time to Ciss and make up

OK, so Wongagate is getting serious now, with Papiss Cisse missing from our pre-season tour of Portugal. Whether the decision was his or the club's is unclear (the BBC news story implies the former), but either way relations between the two parties are clearly not in good shape. Just as well that he's not our #9 and main goalscorer, and that we've made a raft of other high-quality additions to the squad to compensate for his loss. Eh? Oh.

The Toon party has flown out for friendlies with Rio Ave (Saturday) and Pacos de Ferreira (Tuesday), off the back of a 4-2 victory at Motherwell in our opening pre-season fixture on Tuesday evening. It may have been a very young and scratch squad that triumphed over the SPL runners-up, but three senior players - Goofy, Moussa Sissoko and Sylvain Marveaux - weighed in with goals while Haris Vuckic, finally back to fitness, opened the scoring.

We should support Papiss Cisse. My dad was a Newcastle miner and he will be spinning in his grave at the idea of supporting WONGA with its 4000% loan rate. Support petition
