Since arriving at Newcastle in a ridiculously cheap £9.5m deal, Papiss Cisse has grabbed ten goals and one assist in ten games, propelling Newcastle inexorably towards 4th place in the Premier League.
Anfield legend Alan Hansen is a big fan of Cisse, and speaking to the BBC earlier this week, he enthused:
"The arrival of Papiss Cisse from SC Freiburg in January...has given Newcastle a real lift. He is a really tasty player - he scores goals, has got great movement and the fact he is consistently putting the ball in the back of the net will give huge confidence to the rest of the team".
How did Liverpool miss out on this guy? What is going on with the scouting network?
Everton's Nikica Jelavic is another striker who was heavily linked with Liverpool in the January transfer window, but the club lost out again. Between them, Cisse and Jelavic have grabbed 15 goals and 3 assists since coming to the Premier League.
Thank god Liverpool didn't sign a striker in January, eh?
