Newcastle Have The Hardest Working Midfield In Premier League


Good news today that Newcastle officially have the hardest working midfield in the Premier League.

Yohan Cabaye – this dreamboat is also hard working

Newcastle have a new look midfield this season,  and the central partnership of Cabaye and Tiote has looked excellent over the last couple of games,  as both players get used to playing together.

And it’s now official, Newcastle’s engine room is the hardest wortking midfiled in the Premier League, at least according to the EA Sports Premier League Index.

Tiote and Cabaye stand out  as the second and third hardest-working players in the Premier League so far, behind Arsenal’s Welsh captain, Aaron Ramsey.

Tiote has covered 72.12 Km and Cabaye 71.85 Km, and I’m already feeling tired just thinking of the work these two lads have put in this season for the Newcastle cause.

That’s around 12 Km in every game this season.

The Tiote – Cabaye combination has the chance of becoming a famous midfield partnership for Newcastle in the seasons ahead, hopefully successful ones, and we are pleasantly surprised at how good the summer transfer window has turned out to be for Newcastle, even if it was embarrassing that the Board didn’t sign another striker on that disappointing last day of August.

We’ll now have to keep an eye on Chief Scout Graham Carr, and see which matches he attends (if we can), and Graham certainly seems to have an eye for a good player when he sees one, and he is an integral part of building up this new Newcastle side.

It will be very interesting to see who Newcastle will sign in January, if anybody, but with Yohan Cabaye, Cheick Tiote, Dan Gosling, Ben Arfa, Mehdi Abeid, Haris Vukic, Danny Guthrie and veteran Alan Smith all able to play in central midfield, we don’t need that part of the side strengthened.

What do you think?

    Dunno about anyone else, but i have never been as excited for each game as i have this season. Literally thinking about the next game everyday from Sunday! Also did anyone see Bafetembi Gomis goal in the champo league?? What a goal! he looks very inconsistent though and missed a few sitters (Obafemi).

    In 1986, a crack footballer was born. he was sent to prison (mainland europe football) by a FIFA court for a crime he didn’t commit. This man promptly escaped from a maximum-security stockade (FC Twente) to the Newcastle underground. Today, still wanted by the the best in football, he survives as a soldier of NUFC. If you have a problem…if no one else can help…and if you can find him…maybe you can hire… cheick tiote!

    Ed…the Tiote-Cabaye partnership will only last “for years to come” if the board manage to match the ambition of these two excellent players….they will have to break their tightarse ways so that we can build a squad around our outstanding players and breakthrough to challenge the top six -otherwise it will be transfer requests and departures we will see during transfer windows as ambitious clubs sniff around our stars.
