Mathieu Debuchy’s signing for Newcastle was really good news this past week, and he joined his best pal Yohan Cabaye at the Tyneside club, and Yohan was the one who suggested to Alan Pardew that Newcastle should take a look at his friend at Lille.

That looks like French goalkeeper Hugo Lloris on the right
Well the two of them are now together at Newcastle, and we hope they both stay at the club for a long time, although we are a little worried that if Newcastle don’t improve our league position significantly by the end of the season, some club like Arsenal could come after Yohan Cabaye in the summer – but we’ll not bother thinking about that too much right now. 🙁
We just have to hope Yohan shows more loyalty than a certain striker, who we just sold to Chelsea.
Yohan Cabaye did his very best to get Mathieu to join Newcastle, and in the summer he said his pal was just dying to join Newcastle, and certainly Debuchy said all the right things yesterday in his interviews, and he should become a firm fan favorite very quickly at Newcastle.
Mathieu talked about Cabaye yesterday:
“My relationship with Yohan, it’s true, goes back a long, long time to when we first played together as kids.” “He has been a big help and I will be living with him here until I get myself sorted out.” “It’s a real plus that he is here and hopefully, he will help me settle quicker. Yohan and I have spoken a lot about Newcastle. It has been a regular topic of conversation, particularly during the Euros.”
“We were together for three weeks and he talked about the club all the time. He just told me that Newcastle was the best, that not only was it one of the best teams in the division but away from the playing side, there was a fantastic infrastructure and great support.” “That was a big influence and a big attraction.”
“As far as the city is concerned, he has told me a lot about that too, and I am looking forward to getting to know it. But it is the football I am here for, not other things.”
Our question to Yohan would be – do you have any other friends like Mathieu who could do a job for Newcastle? 😀
Debuchy is a great signing for the club, but we need at least a striker and a center-back at the club, by the end of the month.
Howay The Lads!!
