Yohan Cabaye Could Be Out Until January


We had mentioned earlier today there was some bad news on Yohan Cabaye and that he may need an operation to clear up his groin injury. The bad news now is that the injury has turned out to be even worse than first thought.

Yohan Cabaye – may be out until new year?

It seems that Yohan Cabaye was injured while training with the French squad for their game with Italy last week, and he didn’t play in that game, and the initial prognosis – if there is surgery needed – is that he could be out until January.

We don’t know how accurate this is, because there are surgeons who do groin surgeries and the players can come back very quickly, and Michael Owen, when he was at Newcastle had such surgery in Germany, and he played within 10 days, but of course we don’t know how bad Yohan’s groin injury is.

And what Alan Pardew said is that the club will get a second opinion and that surgery may be necessary, but that’s not certain yet.

One of the top groin surgeons is Dr. Ulrike Muschaweck, who operated on both Michael Owen and Oba Martins when they were at Newcastle,  and she has her own clinic in Munich, Germany.

We have to hope that Yohan’s groin injury is not too serious, but it’s  a bad time to be out injured, as Newcastle have eleven games through January 2nd in all competitions.

    I so hope this is not true, we have nobody to cover his ability, If it is true, I hope the result gives him his full ability back and he is pain free.

    Good Luck Yohan

    When any fans talks abt the our game on interplay, movement, creating space for players on the ball, receiving the pass or creating a run to attack. Playing 1 2 passes.

    All theses goes down to a manager, how he wants his team to play more often and his coaching team.

    Of course, with the players that he have bought in he must consider what kind of team he is trying to built.

    And play to their strength with the existing players he have got.

    I don’t subscribe to the theory that Ash is not ambitious for the club. I’m more inclined to believe he wants to achieve growth and progress by implementing a lean business model, but it does look as though he badly under egged the pudding during the close season. The more telling point is what he does from here. The problem for me is that he doesn’t seem to have the stomach to pay the market price for the quality of player needed to take us forward and bringing on the youth may not bridge that gap. His business model may not work and if it doesn’t I’m not sure he’ll be prepared to alter it to the extent needed to make it work..

    We are in deep trouble if this is true. It’s unbelievable how we seem to pick up more injuries than anyone else.
    At our current rate we’re going to be lucky to be in the top 10 in January.

    I don’t think we are in a relegation battle. I think fans are massively over reacting.

    Just had an email from me mate Neil Young , few weeks ago actually..

    Look out for a new music system and player called Pono
    should be on the market soon ..IPod’s will become extinct

    You will hear music just like standing next to the artist singing and playing the instrument..Just like it was first heard in the studio at conception ..you will be shocked at the reality of it .. carry on . Rust never sleeps.

    January Window-
    INS-
    Sissoko £2/3m
    Debuchy £5/6m
    Douglas £3/4m

    OUTS-
    Simpson £1m-£2m (Since contract is running out)

    £8m-£12m net spend?Is that really too much to ask?
    I know it sounds like Kets but I think it’s a bit more realistic.
    We can get these players if we really want to.
    Hopefully we can keep players too.

    We fielded Sammy, Fergie, Bigi, Anita, Marv, Simmo and Willo in that game, collectively that’s a lot of inexperience and proven mediocrity at EPL level. The result is not that surprising, more of a reality check than anything else and in that sense a good thing potentially..

    We didn’t invest in the summer & it’s now coming back to haunt us big style.

    January window should be very interesting..

    A chance to redeem themselves & back the manager.

    And they’ll probably not do it..

    Im sure we’ll all hear the…

    “players are harder to sign in January ”

    Phrase many many times… 😉

    …we still got to recall that we are still a promoted team trying to stand grounds, with many new young players coming into the 1st team and with self sustaining plans and balancing the books policy, things could take times to form.

    Which can be frustrating at difficult times.

    Not a bad team, but Pardew’s reluctancy to change from a 4-4-2 to a 4-4-3/4-2-3-1 will continue to hinder our progress.

    Jinky Jimmy- if the business plan doesn’t work heads will roll. The good news is that the 5year business model current outcome indicates that we’re ahead of target. Although reading this blog you could well be surprised to hear it.

    Jimmy smith- the average age couldn’t have been above 23-24.
    It shows our squad isn’t really big enough to not play our best experiences players.

    I am really starting to wish we had just been taken over by the Arabs that bought City. Just look at them thumping teams, winning things and being linked with the likes of Falcao. Anyone who says they would rather the way it is now is either deluded or happy with mediocracy. Having said that I would not swap being an NUFC supporter for the world 😉

    I think everyone would, the question is that do Ashley and Llambias have the ambition to do so. There is certainly money available, there is no doubt about that so there is no excuses not to bring anyone in. Our fixtures in December are not good either.

    Southampton (A) – Draw
    Stoke (A) Draw
    Wigan (H) Win
    Fulham (A) Draw
    Man City (H) Loss
    QPR (H) Win
    Man Utd (A) Loss
    Arsenal (A) Loss

    8 points from 8 games doesn’t look good. 22pts from 20 games is distinctly average. I’m not saying we’ll end up with that, because we most likely wont. But it’s not looking good atm. We’ve dropped 6 massive points in the last 2 games.

    Conaldo, I agree, Sammy, Fergie, Bigi, Anita, Marv, Simmo and Willo are all players of merit in a 1st team squad, but surely you can’t hold on to a player of Hatem Ben Arfa’s quality if those guys are collectively getting regular games.

    Super
    It doesn’t look good no but thats a purely hypothetical scenario i mean southampton picked up there first win of the season yesterday now there going to beat us?

    Southampton (A) – Win
    Stoke (A) Win
    Wigan (H) Win
    Fulham (A) Draw
    Man City (H) Loss
    QPR (H) Win
    Man Utd (A) Loss
    Arsenal (A) Draw

    Personally think thats a more likely looking scenario time will tell but still think although are form is worrying theres a huge overreaction we hit a huge dip in firm last season where people were predicting we would free fall down the table and it didnt happen dont think it will hapoen this season either

    This is bad news as he is a top player although not in great form for us this year.

    Hopefully somebody else will step in and make his place their own to create competition.

    Is lack of investment costing us in league form? Well yes and no….

    Yes as we could have done with a better quality defence, new RB and CB would have been good.

    No as I dont think our squad is too small for europe, we rest 8/9 every europa league game. The problem is not so much the extra games, it’s more that we have an interruption to the weeks training. We have two games not one to focus on and thats the main problem for me.

    That is something which will come with experience, pardew and the coaches will have to learn how to deal with less prep time and find a way to make training more focused.
