Yohan Cabaye was sorry to see the experienced Joey Barton leave Newcastle for QPR, but he is looking forward to playing against him a week tonight at Loftus Road.
Yohan Cabaye – we have to beat Joey
Joey had to leave Newcastle, because he couldn’t go on criticizing his employers on that Twitter account of his, and if you do that in the real world you’ll be fired pretty quickly.
And we also have to hope that he doesn’t keep tweeting about Newcastle now, which he did again on Thursday, after the transfer market had closed, and he again attacked the powers that be at Newcastle.
Joey shouldn’t be allowed to do that, and we hope he starts tweeting only about his new club, QPR.
If Newcastle can win the game a week tonight at Loftus Road, it will be one of the club’s best starts for many a year, and will take the side to 10 points from their first four games – and just 3o points to go to safety is one way of looking at it.
Yohan says he’s looking forward to the QPR game and playing against Joey:
“I am looking forward to it. I’m sad to see Joey go. I will be happy to see Joey again next week – and to win against him!”
“We’ve taken seven points from three games in the Premier League,” “We’re pleased to have kept the momentum going by beating Fulham. It’s perfect for the team.”
Cabaye is currently with the French International squad, and they play at Romania tomorrow night in their Group D match.
France are on 16 points from their first 7 games and should be able to get a win at Romania tomorrow night, who are in mid-table in the group.
Yohan stayed on the bench in last Friday’s 2-1 win against Albania, and Laurent Blanc’s side will want to qualify for the finals next summer.
They will want to make up for their disastrous World Cup showing, which saw the players revolt against their manager, and they literally became a laughing stock last summer.
Of course England were just hopeless too, as once again these big tournaments seem to be too much for some of our players, but France saved us big time, as they revolted against themselves and their coaches and became the big news last summer.
Yohan is obviously hoping his country can qualify for the finals, to take place in the Ukraine and Poland next summer:
“It’s a big year for us with the European Championships coming up,” “I hope we can qualify, and if we can take six points from these matches that will go a long way towards that.”
“We want to play at the European Championships.” “The French team must go to the European Championships.”
Yohan has been a great addition to the Newcastle team, and he is an excellent character and seems positive about most things.
We remember last Thursday when everybody was very unhappy (make that furious), about the lack of transfer activity on the last day of the window by Newcastle.
And then Yohan was interviewed and came out and said everything was perfect for him at Newcastle, and he managed to lift the mood just a little bit.
Cabaye could be one of Newcastle’s best buys for a a long long time.
