Yohan Cabaye Assured of More Signings


New Toon signing Yohan Cabaye has stated today that the directors have assured him more players will be following him to Newcastle.

 

Cabaye -told Gervinho to join him at Newcastle

Here are the statements given today by the new Newcastle midfielder:

“I am going to play in the best championship in the world for a club who want to get back into Europe within a year and one who are building an ambitious team.

“I am the first recruit but I have discussed things with manager Alan Pardew and I know others will follow. The directors have assured me on this point.”

These are promising words from Cabaye that the club does plan to move this club upwards and onwards. Though as Yohan will definitely find out not everything that comes from the board is ironclad but we definitely believe that this is the plan going forward.

Now we just have to convince quality signings that their future is at Newcastle and that future is a bright one. We also hope that these signings are in fact quality and not just youngsters or squad players.  It does not good to just bring in quantity.  Newcastle need difference makers.  And that doesn’t necessarily mean big money but it does mean players that will add not just depth but excitement and ability to the squad.

These quotes do shed some light on what Alan Pardew is telling prospective signings.  I for one just can’t wait for the next one if it is someone like Yohan.

    Whoever we are after needs to be wrapped up quickly ! The team needs a full pre season together so new players can settle quickly !! Zog n Taylor by end of week ! Ba and another striker within 8-9 days

    hope our striker we are supossedly going to bid for is huntellar. as soon as we sold andy carrol I thought of him straight away. he plays a bit like carrol being physical and good in the air but with more skill

    It is such a bad idea to get Gervinho and ba. What will happen in Jan when they all leave for African cup?
    I would like only ba

    alrite guys, good news to hear that new signings wl be made…however if we sell any players we will be back to square one…theres no point in getting players in but selling the likes of jose, barton and nolan…i’d love to be proved wrong mr pardew!

    ‘Europe within a year’ yes we’d all want and sign up for that. I like the ambitious talk now let’s match it with some more good signings, while building on quality we already have there.

    this might sound obvious but the best clubs have the best strikers.

    we have strikers that are at best average.

    our priority should be strikers first and then other areas.

    toon009, shouldn’t be too much of a problem! Ba struggles to get into the senegal squad, he’s on the fringes! It’s 5 weeks, hopefully we’d have a strong enough squad to cope for those games! I’d happily lose gervinho for 5 weeks if it meant we saw him play 30 games for toon next season! great player, plays with a smile on his face too!

    When the african cup of nations is on we’d have Jonas as backup for gervinho, gosling backup for tiote and Best/Long/whoever we sign up front as cover for Ba.

    I reckon we have enough quality to cover them for the 4 or so games they would miss.

    I dont think we’re going to get gervinho anyway though so it makes no difference lol.

    Great news, hope it will turn out to be true at the end of the summer. 🙂 p.s if we get a winger, this will mean ferguson is on the bench again or he will play as a RB? and what about Raylor’s future? He is not keen on sitting on the bench either…

    So you don’t want a star winger cause every 4 years we lose him for 2/3 weeks?? I would rather have a good player like him than a player who is shit but doesn’t come from Africa

    Besides if he plays right wing both raylor Barton and gosling can fill in for 3 weeks

    I reckon Cabaye (if he becomes a hit) could become Captain in a few seasons… if we are truly building a french frontline..,

    Still think we should go for Zog asap before the mackems move in on him. Ba worth a shot too if his knee is not a problem. As for Gervinho – I think he will go with the wind and not sign for us. Would be great to have him but…well, we know how this club operates. Would like to see Forster given a chance for us too instead of farming him out elsewhere. What is wrong with showing some loyalty and confidence in our own local talent.? And let us make sure Lua Lua has a future with NUFC instead of losing him back to Brighton. It should not be Ashley and Llambias with hands on. No it should be hands off and let Pardew, Carver, Stone and Beardsley get on with the real job.

    Absolutely NO CHANCE IN HELL of getting £8M for Kev Nolan, so we may as well just say we have to keep him.

    Those IMO can leave are

    – Smith
    – Perch
    – Ameobi 😆
    – Guthrie AND Raylor – provided Nolan and Barton sign new contracts or us buying new midfielders AGAIN 😆

    Whose to say im not really Grahem carr 😛

    Hard to say its a waste….

    Soriano 32 goals in 36 games, albeit barca B team

    Shurrle 15 goals and 4 assist in 33 games and has a mean right foot. Only 20 years old….

    Personally I dont think Graham Carr gets anywhere near enough praise, the work he’s doing finding that ben arfa, cabaye and tiote were available for a combined fee of around 12m, hes the best signing Newcastle have made in a while! forget the players

    Anyone else a tad worried that if we do get in 3 – 4 top signings that A) We could lose that English core and graft from the starting 11, and B) Barton and Nolan could kick off if not starting and create a divide between them and foreign players?
    Barton seems to be already at it posting snide twitter comments and it’s not even pre season.

    i used this site for like 3 years, and stopped last season because of 3 reasons.
    1) the whole, sad, pathetic FIRST!! crack,
    2)people claiming the have ‘inside info’ or a ‘source’
    3) people coming out with ridiculous players they think we should sign, who are way way way out of our league.

    Iv been back using the site for the last couple of days and see there is still just as much of this bollocks floating about as ever, it really spoils a good website.

    Wish people would just grow up, be realistic and have decent crack about the toon – like MOST of you do – then we wouldn’t be the laughing stock of football we are to other fans around the country

    Annoying when people post ‘first’ and then don’t contribute, and if they come second it just makes them look like a tw@!
    Hoping the fans give pards the chance to spend wisely, and not expect the whole kitty spent by the end of this week, there are 79 days left 😀
