Yohan Cabaye Ready To Play His Part Against Wolves

Newcastle United central midfielder  Yohan Cabaye  is fully fit and ready to play his part in the upcoming game against Wolves at St. James’ Park on Saturday.

Yohan Cabaye – back for the Wolves game on Saturday

With the lads being trounced 5-0 in their last game at Spurs they will not only want to get back to their winning ways again, but want to put in a good performance for the Newcastle fans.

Yohan has now served his three match ban for Newcastle, and we won the first two of those games, 2-0 at Blackburn and 2-1 at home to Aston Villa, before crashing in London, but the lads have a canny knack of coming back and winning games after a loss.

If we can do that again on Saturday, we’ll be in good shape in the league.

Yohan turned 26 years old in mid-January, and the French International doesn’t like to miss games:

“Three matches out was so long for me, and then another week without a fixture as well,”   “It was very frustrating how it happened at Brighton, but that is football and I have learned from it.”

“But I have worked hard to be ready and fit again. During my time out I have been training with the team as normal but also training on my own at home.”

“I wanted to stay as fit as possible so have been running and using the gym at home. If the manager selects me against Wolves I will be ready.”

“The most important thing is just to think about Wolves. We have to forget what happened at Tottenham and keep moving forward.” 

“We will play with good spirit and to win the game, and we will go out there with only that in our minds.”  “It is important to win at home – that is it.”

“We know the two next games are very difficult, but at home I think we can beat every team if our spirit is good and if we want to compete.”

“We won the game down there but it was very difficult. I remember we played well in the first half and were two up at half-time, but in the second half they made things very difficult for us.”

“Unfortunately they scored at the end of the match but we defended well, managed to hold on and they could not equalize.”

“I saw that they have changed their manager, so I don’t know what they will be like now, but no game in the Premier League is easy.”

The 9 times capped French International has been an excellent buy at €5M, and will offer some creativity to Newcastle’s midfield, and we expect Cheick Tiote to come back and join him in midfield, after his exploits in the African Cup of Nations.

Wolves have still not appointed a new manager, but Reading’s Brian McDermott, a good friend of Alan Pardew’s, is now in the frame, and he would be a good appointment for the side which is currently 3rd bottom of the Premier League, and fighting relegation once again.

A win is all we want from Newcastle on Saturday, and that will help relieve the misery on Tyneside since that defeat in London.

Howay The Lads!!

    we’ve missed him! If you look at the opta stats, the only player who covers more grass than cabaye in the league is Aaron Ramsey! His work rate is phenomenal and for me gives him the edge over guthrie! think theres loads more to come from cabaye next season!

    Cabaye is a good player hope he starts. Just hoping HBA is given a chance with him as he has been training and waiting and waiting. The 2 can be a deadly weapon with their passing games creating ammunition for Papi BA..i just think AP doesnt like HBA and that really annoys me….honestly HBA is being wasted..

    Cabayae is really class and can’t wait to see him back again. Both of them. Don’t want to feel too optimistic coz I’ve been burnt before but I can see a 3-0 plus scoreline. Both c and tiote have a point to prove. Credit to guthrie tho, deserves a new contract definately! Other websites reporting he should be sold but where are we going to find a centre mid to come in and do the job he has? CANNOT wait for the wolves game!

    Ba drops off deep to link with Cabaye, spreads the play for Raylor, crosses for Cisse near post with Jonas following behind. GOAL.
