N’Zogbia Recommended Newcastle To Cabaye


Some of the inside information surrounding Newcastle’s capture of Yohan Cabaye are coming to light.

Charles N’Zogbia – recommended Newcastle to Yohan

Charles N’Zogbia and former center-back David Rozehnal, who signed back in 2007 from PSG, both recommended Newcastle to the Frenchman, and he has also revealed he watched some videos of Newcastle, including their 5-1 walloping of Sunderland last year.

Well, that would have done the trick.

This is what Cabaye said through interpreters after he signed last night:

“I spoke to Charles N’Zogbia and David Rozehnal before joining Newcastle. They both said it was a good choice to come to Newcastle,”

“They said I would have a great time, especially with the fans.” “And those fans appear special. Before signing for Newcastle, I watched some videos on the internet, and particularly the game against Sunderland when Newcastle won 5-1.”

“I could see there was a great atmosphere in the stadium, and I really want to see what it’s like to play at St James’ Park and in the Premier League.”

“I’m very excited about playing at St James’ Park, now I hope I can adapt quickly to the Premier League.” “I hope I can excite the fans here with my football, and I would love to score for Newcastle and see the reaction of the supporters at St James’ Park.”

“But first I must adapt to the football and the city, and get to know my team-mates.” “I also have to adapt to the style of play in England, as it’s very different to France. This is the first time I have moved from my home region, and I want to be ready for the new season.”

There’s constant news about N’Zogbia wanting to return to Newcastle, but we wonder what may happen if Arsenal go after the 25 year-old talented winger?

And Newcastle will hardly want to pay an inflated £12M for the lad from Wigan, when other clubs are being offered the player for £3M less than that.

There’s not doubt that Yohan Cabaye is a very good technical player, and Charles N’Zogbia would be another very good signing for Newcastle, and would add some much needed flair to the side.

In our vote on the home page, 47% think N’Zogbia is not worth £12M, and 46% think he is – with 7% undecided.

What do you think?

    I don’t care if Gervinho goes to Arsenal. But i want Nzogbia in Newcastle. He’s just pure class and proven goalscoring winger. Such a menace on the flanks.

    Damn it.

    Would like to see zog back in town, I think he has evolved as a player and more importantly, matured.

    Dont want cry baby back. Carroll chinned him for a reason. Then he chuffed off to play for a ‘big’ team – Wigan haha – in our darkest hour. He can effing rot there for all I care. Faggot!

    Quite a bold statement, Nzog for 9mil. Sure your not listening to Cwarr07 too much.

    As much as i’d like to see Zoggy back in the Toon, i think we ought to focus our cash on a striker or two. If we get Demba on free, and another one for around 8-10 mill, then we could go for Nzog.
    If Barton, Nolan and Enrique leaves, we’d also have some replacing to do…
    Leave Nzog until there’s an actual need for him, instead of an improvement.

    I think 9m would get N’Zogbia, Whelan said yesterday Wigan need to sell to get funds.
    I would happily have him back besides he did score against Sunderland

    get the zog back, and sell jonas and we wouldn’t have done our transfer kitty any harm either, not to mention we get a player who is younger and has always produced more end product than jonas.

    the more i think about Demba Ba the more i am warming to the idea of signing him as long as he is fit and as long as he isnt the only striker we sign…. 25 yrs old and 7 goals in 12 games for west ham…. not bad at all

    He is free because no transfer fee would have to go to West Ham to sign him.

    Could well be Shane long, or gameio but would have to say Taylor seen though we’ve been given permission to talk- read somewhere demba ba wanted 4 million in signing on fee so not exactly free and you can guarantee that will be out the 35 mill from ac

    No one will pay him a 4 million signing on fee. He will realise hes being stupid and bring that signing on fee down.

    Yeah I hope he does…he is a good player as long as him glass knee stays alright however I have huge doubts that he will pass our medical. He failed both Stokes and West Hams after all

    And thank god for that I cant afford for my laptop to dodgy
