Yohan Cabaye had a terrific game for Newcastle last night in the 3-0 demolition of Manchester United, and he again showed what an excellent midfielder he is – and was simply a terrific acquisition by Newcastle last summer.
Yohan Cabaye – after his simply stunning goal – YES!!!!
Newcastle put in a display that will long be remembered last night, when they rather easily beat the Premier League Champions, Manchester United, by the score of 3-0.
And Newcastle scored two stunning goals through Demba Ba and Yohan Cabye before Manchester United added a third for Newcastle with a comical error from center-back Phil Jones in the 90th minute. when he headed the ball unchallenged into his own net.
And the 25 year-old French international seemed ecstatic after the game, and he had this to to say to nufcTV:
“It is one of my best free-kicks,” “I used to score a few in France, and I practice them a lot in training, but in a game is totally different.”
“When I saw the ball in the goal I was so happy for the team, for the whole of Newcastle, and it was an important goal.”
“It was important, not just for me, but for the team as well because it was the second goal and just at the start of the second half.”
“It is a very, very good result for us and a brilliant start to the new year,” “For me, it is the best game and the best win since I have been at Newcastle. I was very happy to be on the pitch tonight.”
“There was five or ten minutes in the second half where we were under pressure and fortunately for us Simmo saved the ball on the line.” “But after that we stayed strong and worked very hard.”
We had said before the game that the last thing we wanted was another defeat, which would have been the 6th defeat in 9 games.
But we would have been very happy even with a point, but we didn’t expect this, and Newcastle looked a very good side indeed last night in what had to be both their best result of the season and their best performance.
This result will electrify the Newcastle fans, and it reminds us of the 5-0 demolition of Manchester United at St. James’ Park in October of 1996, by the Entertainers, led my legendary manager Kevin Keegan.
But the lads now have to win their next two home games – against Blackburn in the 3rd round of the FA Cup on Saturday, and then 7 days later against a poor QPR side in the league.
Then we could really be on our way – again.
Howay The Lads!!
