Yohan Cabaye Has Injured That Groin Again


The sky is falling in on Newcastle – and just to prove it, there is some bad news that Yohan Cabaye has injured his groin again – that’s the one he has just come back from – after he had two surgeries in November.

Yohan Cabaye – has injured that groin again – oh no!

And Alan Pardew had this to say after the shocking 2-1 defeat this afternoon against second bottom Reading – that puts Newcastle in real danger of relegation this season:

“We had to take Cabaye off because of an injury, that brought negative reaction from the crowd and that spread around,” Pardew told Sky Sports of a player who only recently returned from a spell on the sidelines. “We need some impetus. We have lost Demba Ba and Cheik.”

“We have got Cabaye back, but he is just on the first stage of his comeback. We needed him towards the end of the game.”  “He said he was struggling with his groin. I did not want to take him off, but when a top player tells you he’s injured you listen to him.”

“It was a painful day for Newcastle.” “First half we could not have played better, you could see the extra quality. At that point you’d like to think we’d get away from them, but second half we could not get a grip of the game. We gave away two sloppy goals.”

“We need some impetus in terms of signings. It needs a little boost, to get everyone to get their heads up.”

We don’t think there will be anything that Mike Ashley will do at the moment, and Alan Pardew will have an opportunity to get a win at Villa Park a week on Wednesday night – and that’s another side below us in the league table.

But another defeat and Mike Ashley will at least be starting to think about who he could bring in as the new manager.

A guy that won the European Championship in May seems available – Roberto Di Mateo.

There’s no doubt that the way we lost this game today will lose Alan Pardew a lot of support – certainly from the Newcastle fans.

Of course there’s still 15 games to play and lots of points still to play for – but we have to stop losing games all the time – especially to those few teams that are below us in the league table – and at home too.

Shocking.

    Can’t wait for pardews interview. Cabaye was fantastic today but he’s just back from injury so needed to bring him off as he looked tired, marveaux took a knock in training and be looked tired so didn’t want to risk him. I think in a few weeks we will be back to our best with Taylor and hatem back and then hopefully get a player in before the end of January and kick on from there blah blah.

    I’m sick of it now get him out he’s depressing me. Laurent Blanc or Martinez for me. I’d take Dimatteo or Zola though. Need to get someone who wants to play football. Not someone who watches Stoke videos on a night and gets a raging hard on from long hoof balls.

    I would not hate on Mbiwa if he was to do a uturn and join a better team now. Right fair who would want to come and join this shambles!

    what kind of a manger starts ameobi on the wing when he has a player like obertan to provide some width. why take off marvaux for perch when we had our tails up. den he takes off cabaye for bigirmana and we go 2-1 down. this is not good enough holding out for a 1-0 against reading at home we could of scored 3 or 4 goals today but for pardews negative tactics he needs to go .we need a manager that actually goes to games and play for d win nothing less. what he sees in ameobi is beyond me he clearly cannot control his players. gutierez was tired and really sloppy today but keeps him on instead of marvaux? he clearly dosent have a clue! i remeber wen keegan came back and on his press conference he said i know wat the fans want they want to be entertained we wont hold out for a 1 nill win we want to win by 2 or 3 goals.also when pardew came in he has completly changed tiote. he isnt a patch on d player we seen under hughton. i also taught krul was better under hughton as well as many others i.e guti colo. alan pardew is as bad as iain dowie for gettin teams relegated he has to go blanc or martienez for me

    I have two questions

    1. Would we have won if Remy signed for us and played today ?

    2. What other manager in the rest of the world would play Shola Ameobi right wing ?

    No it needs a massive boost and a whole tactical, technical and style restructure Alan. Namely you need to leave.

    At any other club in world football Pardew would have been sacked before todays game. Forget signings, forget injuries it’s the manager that needs to be replaced, and replaced quickly

    Didn’t watch the game today, but head Willo was at fault again for the goals. If he wasn’t playing we would’ve got a result. Signing 2 defenders, 1 midfielder and 2 strikers is imperative. How did Shola, Marveaux and Debuchy play?

    Incredibly disappointed.

    I do not blame Pardew totally for the mess we are in – the rot starts at the top. But he will be the fall guy. In a way it doesn’t matter who manages us with Batman and Robin in charge. We will never rise above the mediocre and our quality payers will bale out this summer.

    But… football psychology dictates that a new guy in charge can motivate and improve confidence. It is that bad now, it really is.

    Tactically, with a shite defence, trying to hold out for 1-0- is just plain crazy and AP has to take responsibility for poor decisions on the park.
    He is also not motivating the team enough to get the one or two wins we need to pick up.

    So I think he has two more games in charge and if we do not pick up any points he will have to go. To the doom-mongers – remember this may nor be enough to save us. Batman will almost certainly recruit the wrong person.

    And any d***heid who thinks KK would ever work for Batman again – get a lobotomy.

    Come back JFA all is forgiven

    The only thing, and I mean ONLY conceivable thing that can come out of this current situation is that Ashley sees that big fat TV money cheque getting further and further away so he may panic buy to avoid relegation.

    Bye the way Ashley was spotted watching the NUFC game at his home

    Marvo was our best player along with Cabaye. Pardew for some reason took him off. He really is making rubbish decisions this season. A 10 year old could see that was a daft move. I was there today and Cabaye didn’t look injured to me when he came off.
    Cabaye off the Arsenal apparently

    Repost

    SORRY GUYS AN ESSAY HERE. TRYING TO BRING CONTENT RATHER THAN SIMPLY INSULT

    We should now all be at Defcon 4.

    Pardew set todays team up wonderfully in my eyes. Shola isnt a winger but he maintained possession, played unselfishly. winning the ball and giving it to our skillful guys (Cabs, Anita, Debuchy).

    Jonas did the same on the other wing. It took away from our attack but it gave Marv, Cabs and Anita a chance to play the ball.

    Cisse needs intensive work to return him to the player he as last season and in Germany. He lacks confidence and you can see his decision making has gone to pot with it but he isnt a lost cause.

    The Pardew screwed it with HIS tactics. Fair enough you need to take Cabaye but shoulda left Marveaux on.

    Before subs we were controlling that game, we had all the momentum and enough possession to prevent Reading from playing and building and that was down to the fluid football being played down our spine from Collo through Marv, Cabs and Anita.Which was some of the best we have played this season by some way.

    The changes invited Reading to play football, they built momentum and we were suddenly on the back foot.

    RUBBISH PARDEW

    We need three points not 1 and Id rather see us die on our feet that live on our knees.

    ON THE BOARD AND SIGNINGS

    I hate this notion that we are struggling through lack of signings. It’s just not true. We needed signings to contend but not to survive and achieve mid table (which lets face it became our goal before Christmas).

    I would love new signings but people seem to think they will save us from relegation. THEY WONT. Because the root of our problem is that we wont use them properly.

    I want stability in management but we need to entrust that to the right guy and that is not Pardew.

    Look at Billy Davies. He constantly got Forest into the playoffs with a average team (even for the Championship) because he set them up well. They suffered from not having the signings but they werent relegated for it. As soon as they sacked him they were in a relegation fight because the new guy couldnt set the team up.

    Martinez somehow magically keeps Wigan up because he is able to set his very very poor squad up to work for him and they give games a stab every time regardless of who it is.

    What would be more valuable to us than any signing (even Messi or Ronaldo) is a manager of quality. One who can set the team up to play to its strengths and improve its weaknesses. But also one who can convince the players and prospects that we are on the up and not the reverse.

    Rijkard is available (and unlikely to be appointed to another european giant but has the credibility)
    Blanc is available and im sure would ove to be part of our new french revolution.
    Bert Van Marwijk
    GARY NEVILLE

    At first i was hoping pardew would ensure survival and then think about getting a better manager in. I thought it would be dangerous to shake it up this late in the season. But that is not true. We need to go all out for this and shake it up. And if it fails, we tried at least.

    Would rather go down and be in control than have it out of our hands.

    QPR will get another 6 points before we will. Fact. QPR will get even stronger over the next two weeks with the likes of M’Vila. Fact. Wigan always manage to get themselves out of trouble. Fact. Reading have now won 3 of their last four games. Fact. 2 points seperate us from 19th. Fact. NUFC are on their WORST EVER PREMIER LEAGUE RUN. FACT. There is nothing better at a football club than stability that is true, but surely it depends on who is in charge, if you have a good, forward thinking, positive manager then by all means keep him as long as united have fergie, as arsenal have wenger. But keeping pardew for stability, germany should have kept hitler then? Pardew please leave, Im near tears here.

    @Kets… Williamson was at fault for the first, although ball came in from the left (handball take down) no defender challenging the pass.
    Not the second, whole defence was everywhere , Reading got lucky, miss hit shot landed at strikers foot, krul’s vision blocked by 2 defenders.

    Drove 250 miles to watch this today. I dont want to jump on the bandwagon but pardew cost us another game. Ameobi on rw? Marv off and perch on? Fair enough cabaye had a niggle but then bigi? We were playing at one point with perch bigi and anita in the middle…. Seriously?
